Spurs' Bostock ends Owls loan spell

John Bostock has returned to Tottenham Hotspur from his loan spell at Wednesday.

The midfielder was due to remain at Hillsborough until the end of the season but he's failed to make an impression in the blue and white stripes.

He made just four appearances for the Owls - two starts and two appearances from the bench after arriving with Gary Megson in charge at S6.

Bostock wasn't part of the plans of Dave Jones and it's been confirmed today that he's returned to White Hart Lane.

from what I saw or heard, he simply didnt perform for you. though this is another failed loan for Bostock, I wonder if he was a little unlucky here that he was never played in a central attacking CM role or behind a main striker? You have seen him play for you and can perhaps judge him better than I, but for me, you have to see a player in his strongest role as opposed to being played in wide roles, which I never believe suit his game.

I'm not a fan of loan players however they can serve a purpose. What we need are loan players that are in the window such as Marshall and Antonio who if they impress we may or may not choose/ be able to buy. The last thing we need is to give practice time to someone like Bostock who is never going to sign. We got relegated because Laws was doing this all the time and we had no settled team. With regards your comments oxford spur I would say 2 things. Firstly he played in the position he played in because thats what position we needed him to play in and a prem player should be able to do that - we are not Tottenham reserves. Secondly why don't you support Oxford you champagne charlie

So yet another inspirational attempt at gaining promotion from Mr Megson seems to have been added to the growing list of cock-ups that cost him his job. P.S Radon i was born and bred in Sheffield and have lived all over the world. Remove your blinkers theres a lot out there to see, Skegness is not eutopia ? . Just in case i lost you a bit Oxford Spur Skeggy is where most Sheffielders go on holiday. Sad but true.

Megson didn't have to pick Bostock if he didn't rate him. The others Marshall and Antonio if FORCE signed and demanded to be included by the chairman, then he got two out of three correct. Or if you include getting rid of the man who ran out of idea's, Then he got three out of four correct. WE ARE ALL WEDNESDAY ARN'T WE ! ! ! ! ! !. Onwards and up

Haha, I was foregetting about that other popular pastime involving s**t and a stick until Kettering OWL 1963 reminded me. I'm eager to let this whole management issue slide now as it's all been said and everything else is just repetition. We all have our opinions and we're all entitled to voice them but bold assertions really ought to be supported by facts. This 'growing list of cock-ups' for instance. Maybe the truth will emerge one day (don't forget GM's bound by a 'confidentiality clause' right now) but if Bostock's arrival lit the fuse between manager and owner I wouldn't be at all surprised. The explosion that followed may well have cost Meggo his job, but let's not twist things out of shape here. ozzietheowl makes the point that GM's record with loan signings was good (he could also have added Bywater, Llera & Tavernier) and that MM has a history of bringing in players above the manager's head (as he'd also done before at both Portsmouth and Leicester). But Kettering, you'd have us believe that both Marshall and Antonio were MM signings when clearly they were not. As for 'getting rid of the man who ran out of ideas'? That's one opinion and it's hardly backed by statistics, is it? One being that Meggo's Owls led this division for having the highest number of points gained from losing positions, which suggests an ability on his part to successfully alter things during the course of a match. But it's history now, surely. There's only that stupid poll to remind us. DJ will probably find he has a tough act to follow. It's a pity we lost a little ground last night but there's still plenty of time to make up for it. In many ways his real work starts now. Don't forget Father Ted won his first three games and I'd argue DJ has inherited a team that's in far better shape. We can all get behind him without needing to slag off the previous regime. We are all Wednesday, aren't we?
