Owls Land Marshall On Loan

Owls Land Marshall On Loan

Wednesday have today completed the loan signing of 20-year-old Ben Marshall from Stoke City, intially until January 2012.

The winger, who can also pay up front, was on loan at Carlisle for the past 18 months, and broke his leg in the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy final against Brentford last season.

The youngster left Manchester United`s youth side to join Crewe Alexandra`s academy in 2005. He spent four years there until he joined Stoke City in 2009. He has yet to make an appearance for Stoke, but has been out on loan to Northampton & Cheltenham along with Carlisle.

Averaging a goal every 6 games in his career so far, we can`t rely upon him to be the goal poacher, but maybe he can be the creator.

Welcome to Wednesday, Ben. Good luck!

Lets hope he can provide the outlet we have needed since losing JJ to injury. Not ideal hoping a 20 year old loanee can change our form but at least we have got someone in. Have we given up on Roberts and LeFondre?

I think it's dependent on what number shirt they give Marshall. If it's 10 then we're screwed!

I'm thinking that I must be confused like the rest of the Wednesday faithful... Let's think back to what has been said by GM and MM. "I will make sure Gary gets the players we need!", "Teams that got success last season did so without waves of loan players, they had quality squads.", "I'm looking for a Squad of 20 out-field players and 3 goal keepers!" oh and "We need quality and not quantity... I don't want other clubs cast-offs, I want players that the teams are sad to let go!". This is rapidly turning into a repeat of the mistakes of the past!! I know football is a business but it is not a business first... not to the fans! I for one totally agreed with the idea of less higher quality players but it seems we weren't willing to spend what it required to land the players like Charlton and other clubs. I for one back Megson I just wish Milan would as if this lands on Meggo I think it unfair! The team is an improvement in part on what we had if they play to their potential (That was the last squads issue to though!) but the players we were linked with that we have failed to sign may have turned an ok squad into an amazing one!! I still have the un-wavering faith but come on the Suit wearers sort it out!!! WTID

4evaOWL. I think that you are spot on with your comments. The inevitable excuse is that needs must with JJ being injured. no need to explain why but JJ shouldnt even be considered as a starting 11 contribution. Im not saying break the wage structure nor pay over the odds for below averag players but what is frustrating is that Uchechi, Lines and now Marshall are players to be fair that are not the long awaited answer we have been anticipating. These could have been signed after the last day of the season and gone to Austria to gel. Mellor LF and Roberts are worth waiting for!

The only blame Mandy derserves is appointing a Manager that no quality creative player wants to come and play for ... at any price. He can talk a good game but Megson can't make it happen on the pitch.
