On Loan Magpie Has Been On Fire Since The Lockdown But Still Likely Away This Summer



Jacob Murphy has been on fire for Sheffield Wednesday since the lockdown ended, and the Owls resumed their season at the end of June. It had been a frustratingly inconsistent loan spell for the 25-year-old for much of the season though he started showing signs of improvement around the new year.

The winger had a promising January where he started 3 of the 4 matches and chipped in with 2 goals to double his season total up to that point to 4. Before the new year, Murphy was in and out of Garry Monk’s squad, where he just couldn’t hold down a consistent place in the side.

But despite getting more opportunities, Sheffield Wednesday were plummetting down the table with just 1 win in eleven games during the winter months. In February, Murphy found himself in and out of the side again.

However, he was handed three straight starts before the coronavirus shut the season down. In those matches, Jacob delivered with a goal and an assist.


But it’s been since the season resumed that Jacob’s stock has risen. He’s started 8 of the 10 matches, scoring four goals and assisting on 4 more. While Garry Monk’s side never really turned around their poor form since December, Murphy has now become a wanted man at Hillsborough.

He finished the season with 9 goals and 6 assists in his 44 appearances. Owls fans seem to really want him back for next season, which would be Jacob’s final under his current contract.

During a Q&A on Examiner Live, Sheffield Wednesday writer Dom Howson was asked about the chances Sheffield Wednesday had of bringing Murphy back next season.

This was Howson’s answer:

I think it will be tough. Murphy has seriously put himself in the shop window with the form he has shown in 2020. I can see a scenario where there will be a number of clubs keeping a close eye on his situation.

It also remains unclear whether Newcastle will be prepared to loan him out again next season or look to cash in. If it is the latter, that could make a deal tricky for Wednesday.

We suspect Newcastle would prefer to offload Murphy to recoup some of the ยฃ12m paid for him in 2017. Even though he’s had a very dominating stretch to close this season, we suspect his time at Newcastle is all but over.

However, with limited funds in the coffers for new signings, Bruce could take a cursory look at Murphy in the preseason. But we don’t expect Jacob to be a part of Newcastle’s plans going forward.

    Personally I would have taken it .
    But only for the fact that’s it’s easier to sell the club and get rid of fat lad in the premiership than it is in the championship !

    Well I would like to nominate Kevin Vegan for the blog moderator job.

    .co.uk isn’t really that bad, definitely not as bad as Jail for Ashley makes out.

    Once King Kev strips all members of his thriving fan club of their .com citizenship, you’ll all really enjoy it over there.

    Murphy strikes me as one of those training ground players.

    No confidence or self-belief to do it in front of expectant/hostile or otherwise crowds, briefly showing glimpses like his goal against Man City which he took really well. Most of the time he looks afraid of trying anything.

    Get ยฃ5-8m recouped on him from a Champ club and we’ll have done well.

    Romford

    Iโ€™d of took it as well for a lot of factors. The fact we had the worst summer experience of being a fan with the letdown of BZG and then losing our messiah. Then after all that we lose Perez and Rondon who were huge for us the season before.

    When I look at the team of course I believe a better manager could of done a lot better than Bruce this season but we are who we are right now and no top manager or young hungry manager with potential wouldnt come anywhere near us.

    Because of Ashley.

    My guest’s be that you’ve seen Peter Green as a member of John Mayall Blues Breakers or Fleetwood Mac – probably the former and they would tie in with the Juncos as support in the early to mid sixties.

    Sunderland will have new ownership before we do. While I would not want to be in their position, where the club is available for less than the price of a decent fullback or a shit centre forward, what they will have, which we wonโ€™t, is hope.
