Good question. 
 

I can’t remember Monk utter his name once in any interview, nor any journo mention him since his injury.
 

Another player who came with promise, but showed us absolutely nowt.

Give him a try. Borner and Lees have been abysmal in the last few games.

Singed on loan and we've never seen him. Nailed on to become a permanent in the summer....... lol

We needed another centre back for the rotation and so we signed one. Generally, the three ahead of him have played well so he hasn't had much chance to be involved.

 

What's weird about that?

 

Lees is looking like a flipping ninety year old, borner is off form and fox is injured. If he can't get a game now he's fizzed to be fair.

Waste of wages really.

 

If the bloke can't get minutes on the pitch even when we're on a terrible run and looking increasingly vulnerable in defence, it makes you wonder why he was signed.

 

When you consider that we started the season with Lees, Borner and Iorfa all fit and available.  All Championship-standard CBs.

 

Then with the likes of Hutchinson, Fox and Thornily (yes I'm aware he's since been sold) all capable as cover options, signing another CB just to make up the numbers was an expense we probably could have done without.

 

That money we've actually wasted, would have surely been better used by strengthening our options at full-back, centre-midfield or up front.

We've wasted money for 5 years.

 

Too many signings have made no sense whatsoever.

He’s probably hoping and praying that Monk keeps forgetting that he’s a Wednesday player.

I expect he turns up each day wearing overalls and carrying a paint brush . “ You still painting the North Stand on your own pal” says Monk.

” Yes, the work experience lads just don’t turn up “ replies  Bates.

As a first step I’d settle for Iorfa and Börner playing a few games at CH together...

Also stop trying to find a place for Tom Lees when these two play.

Only one game I know but he looked like a lower league defender when I saw him against Rotherham. Thorniley looked much better in that game.

He’s the new Abdi..as a club we always need one player that never plays. 
 

We should try to get disability caters allowance to generate extra revenue

It's SWFC diversity and inclusiveness programme. Wednesday are woke. We can tick that box.

 

Oh and it means the club can claim a motability car for him and an ergonomic orthopaedic chair.

 

Winners all round.

He surely can’t be that bad that he can’t even get in the squad.

 

I met and kept in touch with a few Hamburg lads from when we were there for pre season and although they said he wasn’t a world beater they think he's a steady defender and they only let him out on loan as they got a new manager and he fancied his own players.

Believe he’s in the same boat as Westwood & Hutch....

I think this goes back to the Carlos era when the club unwittingly signed up to Article 18 of the European Treaty on displaced footballers. Thankfully now that we’ve left Europe we’re in the transition phase but no doubt we’ll continue to abide by the treaty.

 

True story.

Why don't we try him up front if he's no good at the back?
