Owls Wait On Loan Move

Wednesday boss Brian Laws has revealed he's waiting for an answer from his loan target, and insists patience is well and truly the key.

The Owls boss has already held talks with a new striker, who he's keen to bring to the club on a loan basis, but is waiting for an answer from his man - who's also talking to two other clubs ahead of any move.

The striker in question is thought to be Arsenal youngster Jay Simpson, although Laws has refused to confirm or deny the reports with the striker, who's also been on loan with West Brom.

Laws has also revealed that he isn't turning his attentions anywhere else in his search for bolstering his squad, and is keen to land his number one target.

Any new striker won't be in the squad to travel to Newcastle, but could make their Hillsborough debut in Saturday's visit of Scunthorpe United to S6.

Interesting lack of options for the Toon game then. We could try a 4-5-1 against Newcastle. Midfield of Gray, McAllister, O'Connor, Miller and Esajas with JJ as a lone front man... Just thinking aloud. Any thoughts?

Good idea if we only have Jeffers fit. I'd play Grant. Simek, Purse, Beevers, Spurr. O'Connor, Miller, Potter, Gray, Esajas. Johnson as lone striker.

I 100% agree with that Danigol. Think that's actually a pretty strong line-up and a good tactic to employ against Newcastle personally.

Forget this one man up front rubbish. myself, wesp, danigol and carbone would make a better back four than newcastles. attack them, plenty of goal to be had there.

I cant believe I forgot about Tudgay! hahahaha! Tudders upfront on his own then with Johnson & Esajas supporting from the flanks. Me & Wesp centre backs, carbone right back and dezzy left back. Sorted.

I know EE is a winger, but with his creativity and shooting from distance I reckon he'd be good behind the front two... Any thoughts on them apples?

My thinking was having a 5 man midfield, O'Conner sitting infront of the back 4, 2 centre midfielders and Esajas and Johnson as advanced wingers supporting Tudgay in almost free roles going forward and sitting back alongside Potter and Miller when Newcastle have possession.

im much more of a right back danigol, dont have the height to be a cb and Shola and Carroll are big baxtards, agree with dezzy though hope we dont sit back, Collocini is all over the place need to attack

No worries Wesp, the right back slot is yours, im 6'3 so will compete in the air with them big buggers haha. Yeah I think a three pronged attack Tudders, JJ & EE could hurt them.

yeah Dan pretty much carbon copy of Mourinhos Chelsea only slightly less skillful, JOC/Makelele, Potter/Essien, Miller/Lampard, EEE/Malouda, JJ/Cole, Tudgay/Drogba

Defo Esajas needs to figure more, he can get us some goals.

Yeah exactly how Mourinho's Chelsea used to be set up. I think it could work well, although I have the feeling we'll either beat them comfortably or get hammered. Esajas should play every week for me Mighty.

Wednesday conceded more headed goals (19) than any other Chamionship club last season and already one this. Newcastle if any saw them play reading are good in air hence any formation needs to try and address this. Best 2 we have in air are Wood and Beevers. Tudgay and Potter are next others struggle when asked to mark individuals. Boden is a big lad and in the reserves Oliver and Harrison can both head a ball.
