Owls boss confirms Uchechi departure

Owls boss confirms Uchechi departure

Wednesday boss Gary Megson has confirmed that Nigerian forward Daniel Uchechi, who was on-loan with the club, has left Hillsborough.

Uchechi made just one league appearance for the club since making the loan switch from FC Dender in August and has seen his loan spell, which was due to run until January 2012, cut short.

He played in the Carling Cup contests against Blackpool and Blackburn Rovers, and also the Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie at Bradford City, while making a substitute appearance in the 2-1 loss at Bury in the league.

But he failed to break into Megson's first-team plans and, with three loan players arriving at Wednesday this week, Uchechi has moved on.

Think he served his purpose. Someone to play in the league cup, the JP trophy (at a time when we only had 2 fit strikers) and someone to be the opposition in training. Which is pretty damn important. Additionally JOC is part of a successful TEAM and I'd much rather have him in it than bloody jj.

I wonder if we got rid of JOC today, who would some Wednesday fans pick on next ?

your guess is as good as mine, it irritates me how there always has to be an undeserved whipping boy. i have my issues with jj and have for years but that is because he plays only for himself (and he doesn't even do that well!) but JOC is being selected to do a specific job for the team which he generally achieves and when he has off day he still puts in maximum effort.

Couldn't agree more. It's about the best TEAM - not the best players. Unfortunately that's the mentality in this country: hence England's pathetic record. We're doing great right now and a first teamers getting stick?!? Have a day off.

JOC is total tripe I have tried to come round to him but frankly despite all his hard work he's no good as a footballer. I think he holds our team back big time. Can't fault his work rate but should not be in the club. Not good enough.
