Further Hinds Blow

Wednesday boss Brian Laws has received a further blow on the injury front with the news that utlity man Richard Hinds could be out of action for up to eight months.

Laws brought Middlesbrough right-back Tony McMahon in on loan after former Scunthorpe man Hinds was feared to be out on the sidelines for around two months.

But Hinds, who broke his lower leg in the 4-1 defeat at Wolves, is now facing being out of action for the rest of the season and Laws could well look to extend the loan of McMahon.

'We have to strengthen that area because we can't put timescales on Frankie Simek's comeback and Richard Hinds now looks likely to be out for six to eight months,' Laws told the official SWFC website.

'He has been to see the specialist again. When he went before, the initial timescale put on it was three to six months but now they have gone to between six and eight months, which is a massive blow for the kid and for the club.

'All specialists will say they have to err on the side of caution but it is still a long time,' the manager continued. 'I feel for him because he is in the last year of his contract and he has given everything for the football club. He got injured and we need to take his welfare into consideration. I am disappointed for him and I hope he has a speedy recovery.'

Why not put down the whole squad and start from scratch. I got a couple of mates that would be up for a kick about Saturday afternoon.

As soon as they described Hinds injury I knew it was a season stopper. I hope the club do right by him. I couldn't understand why we bought him at first but his honest hard work has won me over.

Sucks to be a football player sometimes. He's always done his best for us and wish him luck and I hope he'll return earlier than that.

Sheard said today: "I am not concerned." "My backers have spoken with Bob Grierson (Owls finance director), Kaven Walker (chief executive) and Dave Allen (former chairman) and will be speaking to the other parties (shareholders Geoff Hulley and Keith Addy) today." "I'm confident that we'll get it concluded swiftly now." Just a few more days then Geoff? And a few more, and a few more, and a few more.

He'll never be a world beater but I agree RatherRandom, he's a grafter who always seems to give everything to the blue and white cause. I wish him well and hope he gets through this. As for the "takeover"....I won't be holding my breath!
SuperOwls
Totally agree with the comments expressing concern at this mess of a takeover. Can anyone explain why it is taking so long when Sheard claims he wants to buy and the current directors are desperate to sell. Seems to me that it is Sheard who is holding up the deal by not providing proof of funding. The message from all Wednesday fans to Sheard must be put up or shut up and stop messing us about. This has gone on far too long and your pathetic excuses are wearing very thin!

I have a feeling that this team of mystery backers are looking to buy the club as cheaply as possible, and who can blame them? our assets are non-existent given the extent of the debt, they still seem to be interested but I have to question their motives. It also seems a shame that this season is passing us by as I feel that not much needs to be added to the squad to make us serious contenders for a top four spot, Laws has a good idea of what makes a good side and maybe having to scrap around with no money is the ideal preparation for a good and sound future. up the owls!!!!!
