Gilbert Hands In Transfer Request

Wednesday left-back Peter Gilbert is understood to have handed in a transfer request at S6 after Wednesday reported Plymouth Argyle for an illegal approach for the player.

Former Owls boss Paul Sturrock was reported to be interested in signing the defender, with Wednesday making a complaint to the Football League last week for an illegal approach for the former Leicester City man.

And that has seemingly prompted Gilbert to hand in a transfer request to Owls boss Brian Laws, which is understood to have been rejected.

Gilbert played in the Owls' Carling Cup first round defeat to Rotherham United in midweek, although Richard Hinds is expected to return at right-back for the trip to Wolves this weekend.

And with Argyle since signing Chris Barker from Queens Park Rangers to bolster their defence, Gilbert could well be stuck at Wednesday for some time.

I was in a pub in cardiff watching Wednesday take on Plymouth last season. Surrounding me were half a dozen Plymouth fans and it was pretty lonely, especially when we did our usual and conceded a soft goal early on. I had to explain that was how we had played the entire season and assured them that we would equalise before the final minute. Well our strikers looked about as likely to score asa pauper in a brothel when Tommy Spur came to my rescue. The only thing we'd managed to agree on for the whole game was that no one was too impressed by Gilbert. I understand if BL wants cover at fullback but I won't shed to many tears when he goes. I'll say this for KPS though, he's very loyal to his players isn't he. I hope the old feller does alright.

It's a sorry state of affairs when we're divided as to whether we should keep Gilbert as we might need him as back up. Poor back up indeed but can't disagree that the way we're dropping like flies at the mo he'll probably be starting for us every week for the next few months!

At any other club I'd agree Beverley but we don't have anyone esle to fill in when we need to rest our regulars or when they're injured, such is the sorry state of our tiny squad - prime example was vs Rotherham!

What the f*&k is going on when WEdnesday are being merked by some useless tw*t like Gilbert? He's the worst left back I've seen for a while, I'd even venture worse than Beswetherick and Barry-Murphy. And he hands in the request? Jesus wept
