Two Loan Players Face Off In Carabao Cup

Jacob Murphy and Dan Barlaser faced off in the Carabao Cup this evening. Both started the game as Murphy’s Sheffield Wednesday secured victory of Dan Barlaser’s Rotherham United in stoppage time 1-0.

What a heartbreaking defeat for Dan and the Millers but a thrilling victory for Jacob and the Owls.

Jacob Murphy played 66 minutes before being replaced by Barry Bannan in their win. This was Jacob’s 5th appearance for Sheffield Wednesday since joining them on loan.

Dan Barlaser was substituted for Shaun MacDonald in the 67th minute. This was Dan’s sixth appearance for Rotherham.

    Muto took his penalty very well as did Schar – was never confident with Jon jo or Hayden

    Sounds like Ritchie got a bad challenge. Was it a red card? Looks like after the Huddersfield one we’ve gone back to getting F-all.. Ward-Prowse and now Choudry the latest to escape a red against us.

    Spot on, dont mind booing players who leave on bad terms or force a move away. Perez has served us well and shouldn’t be getting booed. Poor really from our fans

    I’ve seen players take worse penalties than Shelvey and score. I think he was just unlucky that Schmeichel pulled off a great save.

    Little more disappointed in Hayden’s effort. I’ve always been a big believer in just hitting it as hard as possible, even if the keeper can get a touch they won’t necessarily save it.

    All in, not surprised that we’re out. I am surprised that we competed as well as we did, considering the players on the pitch. I wouldn’t say Matty had the best of games but great for him to get the first one out of the way and hopefully know he can gain some minutes in the league. I’m looking forward to having a genuine wing back with pace in Willems and once he’s up to speed he should give us another option in attack.

    Pity about the result. A lucky Leicester goal but two, two missed penalties say a lot.

    Ok, we lost but the Prem’s more important.

    Now had this result been under Rafa, one or two of our little fraternity would’ve onto him like a dog at broth.

    Can we assume that 32% of possession at home’s ok with Catchy, when it’s Bruce in charge?

    I think Muto certainly deserves more than to be 3rd choice centre forward ploughing a lone furrow up top. In the 343 or 3421 set up, which I’m hoping we’ll return to for Watford and stick with, he should be considered anywhere along the front line. Joelinton or Carroll up top, and St-Max, Almiron, Atsu or Muto, tucked in either side in the hole behind, in that sort of hybrid inside forward winger position we play quite effectively. Need to credit Muto for his professionalism, and recognize he continues to be used as a stop gap when he might easily have more to offer.

    On shelvey, personally I’d cash in on him, not bothered he missed the pen but he’d bring in a lot of money for someone so Average

    It is when Leicester play there first xi and we play our 2nd string.

    Steve Bruce is doing much better and that’s great, but Rafa clearly chose to be on our side, more than the owners, and Bruce has a similar decision to make. He really must constantly push Ashley hard for more, and be seen to do it, if he hopes to make a proper go of this.

    Nicky, one journalist suggested Steve might ‘manage upwards’ better than raf,a, and get more from Fats as a result. I think thats plausible.

    I agree Munster. He may manage better upwards. He still needs to go into bat for the football side with firm resolve. No good following Rafa, who was our champion in that regard, and ending up falling in line behind a failed approach like Pardew and McClaren. I like Steve Bruce and want him to do well, but he must firmly speak truth to power, and be prepared to walk if Ashley doesn’t do right, if he hopes to truly win the fans backing.
