Blades rival Owls for Ben Marshall

Sheffield United have made a bid for Wednesday's on-loan wing wizard Ben Marshall, according to reports.

The youngster is currently enjoying a superb loan stint at Hillsborough from Stoke City and all reports point to Marshall extending his loan deal, and signing a new contract at Stoke, within the next week.

But his performances so far this term have caught the eye of a number of clubs, not least Danny Wilson's United who are reported to have made a bid to lure Marshall to Bramall Lane.

The Premier League side are understood to be keen to keeping Marshall at the Britannia Stadium, however, and will only loan him out to give him first-team experience.

That puts the Owls in the driving seat, especially thanks to the relationship between Owls boss Gary Megson and Stoke manager Tony Pulis, and the fact Marshall is enjoying life with the Owls.

Pulis has already aired comments that he's keen for Marshall to remain at S6 for the rest of the season to aid his development, and although that looks likely, it's yet to be made official.

Another of Wednesday's npower League One rivals Huddersfield Town have already been linked with the winger this season and Wednesdayites will be keeping everything crossed that their player-of-the-season so far remains an Owl for the rest of the campaign.

Have a day off! Any money this report came from the national press who have have knowledge below the prem - it offends me the lack of respect shown for clubs in the lower leagues.
Sorry that should be 'have no knowledge'
What a load of crap, Pulis has already said he wants him to stay at Wednesday playing for a big club in front of big crowds, that rules out Utd straight away ha ha ha!! Ched Evans is on his way to Brighton so I hear from local sources, that's their goalscorer gone then!!
Worst headline yet - that's the last club he will go to,i have heard the evans to brighton rumour and rhodes to QPR as well,remember owls fans its only half way thru the season and we don't need to sell whereas united do and huddersfield can't turn down daft money for rhodes
carlton owl
I have heard that he wants to play football on the ground not 60 yard passes.
He'll not be going to sty then piggy.
ecco owl
better football then your lots game you've reinvented the long ball game. who's your top scorer your centre half?
And who yours a rapist
ecco owl
better than the so called "goal machine" what has happened to him got a server migraine from all the flick on's he's had to do. You've won the award for the worst football team to have played a BDTBL this year.
go on say it "were the bigger side" please
worst side to play at brammall lane. voted by who 100%porkscratching
Radon Barrier
sorry did a typo - meant bumh*le lane
Radon Barrier
Gary Megson wouldnt say it about his own side even though he is a grunter............Its wednesday there massive they get 50,000 for the season ticket draw
I wondered why the pig was on here, have a look at vital pig, the last piece was on the Bournemouth match on 17th dec, what a big club they are, poor little piggy has no friends so he comes on here annoying us, whats up piggy are you on here trying to find out your last two results.
ecco owl
no I just look at the league to know how we did (we're 2nd at the minute playing proper football trained by on of you own). Typical dirty Wendy fan still enjoying the boxing day massacre thats your lot through and though enjoying the past.....even your own manager said we are bigger than you look at our wage bill and w didnt have to rip off the tax man or co-op bank to pay ours with old Milan not paying his taxes but hey him and Ched can share a cell together.
here it is 2. Sheff Utd 23 14 5 4 +19 47 3. Sheff Wed 23 14 4 5 +13 46
Do you have a point 100%porkscratching?
Radon Barrier
the point being we are above you in the league playing football when you play it on the ground not getting your goal keeper to kick the ball 70 yards for one of the donkeys to flick it on and then it land to one of your donkeys to toe poke it in.........lets face it Sheffield Wednesday is a long ball side who have not strung 10 passes together since Brian Laws left....but you all think you are a good side who are MASSIVE I am just sayng your a poor side who are small with a crook in charge.
Wednesday play direct football and have a good squad. United are playing triangles in leagur one with a squad which is likely to be sold due to debts. Wednesday are the bigger club of the two as you know. Its irrelevant how you exit this league and the one above. Stoke play direct and I would swap positions with them. The glory days under atkinson started with direct football under wilkinson. You have no point just biased united opinion that is silly.
Radon Barrier
There's no point trying to be objective, Radon. These'll be bragging oinks unless I'm mistaken, brought on by sampling the rarified atmosphere of 2nd spot in the table or else the novelty of them being ahead of us for the first time since September. Either way, we're only talking about 1pt and it won't last so it's best to ignore these childing rants altogether. Besides, the idiot is obviously too young to remember Harry 'Everything Into The Box' Bassett.
Bet you're all wondering what 'childing' means. Haha. Answers on a postcard...
Yeah and Bassett did the double over your lot of losers i.e. Carton Palmer classy football he could control it longer than he could shoot.... United we're long ball side but we didnt try and hide it United have no money but at least we never riped off banks and the tax man offering a fraction of what we owed cos we couldnt afford the repayments you all knck palace for what they did and your lot are just as bad!!!! but you wont admit it cos Wednesday have massive crowds but cant pay the tax bill.
Childing adjective bearing a child; pregnant bearing a cluster of newer blossoms around an older blossom who needs a postcard
Wednesday ripped nobody off. They could have taken the easy option of admin years ago but tried to work through it. Admin was the last resort but instead they were bought out - that is what is known as business. United now owe much more than we did so I can understand your jealousy/ bitterness. Clubs like Palace and Middlesborough go into admin because they had a debt and nobody was prepared to buy into them as they were seen as a bad business proposition. wednesday were seem as a good business proposition which is why they avoided admin. Ours and palaces situation are completely different. Uited owe most of their money to one man and as such are in BIG trouble!! And who says that we don't admit to playing direct football. You go on about us mentioning the boxing day massacre but bring up a double from 20 years ago. We used to have an idiot piggy called bladeforlife come on here - are you related?
Radon Barrier
nah was just waiting for you lot to brng your double on here....You cheated the banks the tax man and were insolvent you bought players like morrison in on a high contract and then were served with a winding up order and it took another tax dodger (Milan) who had ripped his country off so our wouldn't matter about our...Yeah we owe McCabe money but do you think Milan has written your debt off as a goodwill gesture or is he gonna want it back I'd go for the latter.....Its side like Wednesday that give English football a bad name people have lost alot of money thanks to Wednesday the massive club not being able to pay there bills embarrassment.
I think this is pigforlife crawled out of the woodwork cos they've won a few games, what a ar$ehole, still jealous of the biggest club in sheffield are we. Grow up you pig and get back on your own site cos it's like Mary Celeste at the moment.
ecco owl
I think its him ecco. I don't get the bit about writing the debt off. That was done by the bank mainly and the other smaller creditors. MM bought cheap and will hope to make a large profit when he sells on . Again thats business - or am i missing something here?
Radon Barrier
No i think it's pigforlife thats missing something a brain.
ecco owl
wow you guys are really classy (like wendys football barca of the north) well if the bank wrote the debt off that wednesday owed and couldnt afford to pay it back surely they got ripped off like if you two lent me 10 and i couldnt give it you back knowing i didnt have the money i ripped you girls off
lets be honest you guys say I am missing a brain you dummy's are biting at the truths Wednesday are a group of long ball playing free loaders who take a massive amount of debts to stay in the championship and pay the smallest amount possible and people will tell me your a massive club well if you have 30,000 crowd every week you would make a profit to pay money bak but you dont havent seen a Wednesday shirt since we went above you there all fair-weather fans but you will all still say "we're a massive club" **newsflash your not!!!! Rotherham is bigger
What a load of drivel.
Radon Barrier
don't waste your breath arguing with the idiot it's like arguing with a child
Geez it's a sign the pigs are actually above us! Where was all this crap while we were in 2nd? Absolutely pathetic that your obviously sad and lonely christmas has to be highlighted by coming onto the better teams forum and trying to run us down just because (for a very short while) the pigs are actually higher up the league than us, albeit by only a point! Just **** off back in your hole you pathetic waste of oxygen
classy at least you all bit thanks all and enjoy league one next year
PS Long ball doesn't work if you pay to watch that kind of football your crazy free kicks and long throws that's all Wednesday have and a corrupt chairman lol
How did you go on today you thick piggy ba$tard, and who's above who, and what will you do when the rapist is locked up. Normal services resumed, the massive are back on top of the little pigs. 24,254 of us today, smashes anything you lot get unless were in town. Go on crawl back behind the skirting boards pigforlife what a complete ar sole.
ecco owl
Yeah your MASSVIE typical dumb wendy fan you havent got the mental capacity to perceve what I am saying you stupid little grunter!!!! (By the time of the message i can gather that you went one of the 24,254 there more a radio sheffield fan!!!). You rip banks off you chairman rips this country off and AGAIN a centre half scored proper classy at least I can watch football and be entertained you cant sat at home listening the the match with sky sports and vital football open great life
Yes i have been pig, call me stupid, just have a read at what you've just put, pitty they closed beeley wood.
ecco owl
You don't even make sense bladeforlife - at least I can watch football and be entertained you cant sat at home listening the the match with sky sports and vital football open great life - What does that even mean? I don't know about Beely Wood I think your more Middlewood, and thats as close as youve ever been to a decent football ground.
Radon Barrier
Well that's the end of pigforlife for abit gob****
ecco owl
lol middlewood watching you underachieving youths how did they do against alfreton? was it 12 or 14 i cant remember i laughed so hard come to shirecliffe and watch a proper football club with a good infrastructure in place for success not just pulling any kid possible thats over 6foot tall for free kicks!!!!! my point being you messaged that quick there is no way you were at the match so dont try putting you big crowd in front of me you were not even there lol
when your gonna understand your a lucky team with no class
Firstly i meant Middlewood hospital and secondly have you ever heard of blackberrys or i phones?
Radon Barrier
I posted a comment at 17-45, the match finnished at 16-55, i live 10 minutes from the ground, what is your problem you annoying piggy tvvat, and why would i not go when i have a season ticket dickhead.
ecco owl
you wasted mney watching that **** lol.
and we all know Wednesday cant afford iphones they'd do the deal and 12 months into the contract say they cant pay the money off and end up paying a fraction of the contract back cos you dont pay your bills
running all the way home to message me what a good life you have
just to let you know your losing lol
Funny how we have gone above you and this site is quiet now....typical wendy fans going back into the woodwork lol
Ecco and Radon dont cry too much
