Lunt 'Infuriates' Laws

Lunt 'Infuriates' Laws

Wednesday boss Brian Laws has been left fuming after out-of-favour midfielder Kenny Lunt rejected a loan move away from Hillsborough before the transfer deadline.

The former Crewe Alexandre man hasn't featured in Laws' first team plans this season, mainly playing for the reserves and with the Owls' academy players in friendly matches.

And a loan bid from an un-named club was made prior to last night's transfer deadline which was turned down from the Runcorn-born midfield man.

He told the Sheffield Star: 'Players make me laugh when they say they just want to play games and when they do get an opportunity to play games, they don't want to go.

'It really does infuriate me at times.'

Laws is looking for a way out for Lunt, who returned to former club Crewe last season on loan, so he can free up some wages to bring in loan players.

TERMINATE his contract now what a waste of space money money money thats all he sees swfc as

It typifies the modern day footballer when they'd rather sit on their backside, train with the kids, and pick up a handsome paycheck rather than actually play football

Lunt infuriates everyone. What an absolute Lunt he is

Well we can't have it all ways. We criticise Woody for not honouring his contract but we attack Kenny for doing precisely that. Yes he probably wants to wait until he becomes a free agent, which I'm guessing won't be long, but we gave him the contract and it's hardly fare to have a go at the bloke for standing by that contract.

Nick, how tempted were you to replace your headline from Lunt to...C....ya know what i mean. haha
02/09/2008 11:29:00
Not his fault. What if the club was someone like Bournemouth and he just didn't want to go. Forcing him to is called human trafficking.
02/09/2008 13:12:00
I say play him in the next game.

totally agree skeggy - what an idiot he is.

what you on about rob? lunts said he wants to play regular first team football, a LOAN offer comes in (hes still on contract with us) and he turns it down to stay in reserves. Completely different to our captain starting every game and demanding a transfer
