It's been a slow news week, but one or two news items caught our eye.. mostly speculation, it's true.
Sammy Clingan is again on the rumour radar, mainly due to no further news on the Darren Potter situation, so the papers have to fill that particular news gap. The 25-year-old Canary and Northern Ireland international would command a fee though.. Brian Laws would obviously have to sell before buying.
Young Hammer Freddie Sears finally put pen to paper at Crystal Palace and will play for that tireless promoter of young striking talent, Neil Warnock. Late interest from QPR (allegedly) was not enough to prevent Sears becoming an Eagle.
Owls chief exec Nick Parker commented on the Richard Wood/Tommy Spurr situation in the Star: 'We are not a selling club. Of course we want to keep all our best young players. We have a core of young really good players and around that I think what Brian Laws has been trying to do is bring in a bit of experience. Darren Purse, (32) Tommy Miller (30) and Michael Gray (34) are slightly older, more experienced and a bit more level headed. [Laws] has been bringing in experience while trying to keep the youth and enthusiasm that we have there and I think it's quite cool really.'
Former Owl Steve Watson says that if he has to bow out of professional football, the Steel City derby at Bramall Lane is a great game to sign off with. 'I enjoyed every minute of my time at Sheffield Wednesday. It's been great being there - it's up there with the big sides that I've played for and it's a first-class club. If it's going to be my last involvement in football, it's been a happy two-and-a-half years. The last derby win was my last time on a football pitch and that wouldn't be a bad way to finish. Even though it was only four minutes and I got only one touch on my chest that was still an appearance in my book!' said the old fella. Good luck to you, Steve, whatever the future holds.
One Owls old boy joins another - Peter Shirtliff has become the assistant manager to Danny Wilson at Swindon Town.
And a very amusing article over on Vital Newcastle - Alan Shearer will apparently sell everyone who is famous (or infamous) at Newcastle and use the money to buy 'the best of the Championship' (including Mark Beevers and Tommy Spurr). Way to cut the wage bill, Al, but maybe you'd better get the job first.
