McCabe joins Portsmouth on loan

McCabe joins Portsmouth on loan

Owls midfielder Rhys McCabe has joined Portsmouth on an emergency loan for the rest of the season.

The former Glasgow Rangers man has seen his time on the pitch limited in the blue and white stripes this season and will hope for more regular action with League Two Pompey between now and the end of the campaign.

The 21-year-old has made just nine appearances for the Owls this season, scoring one goal, and his last outing came in the 2-0 victory at Reading in early February.

He will swap the Championship for a relegation battle in League Two, with Pompey sitting just four points above the relegation zone. He could make his debut in his new club's home match against York at the weekend.

Hands up all those who thought signing this fella from Rangers was a real coup? That we might be looking at the next John Sheridan?? A player who had the potential to become a fixture in the Scottish national side for the next 10yrs? Okay, just me then. But something has gone awry all the same. I'm always tempted to point the finger at Jones and that way he had of favouring some players and ignoring others or else publicly reminding them of that lairning cairve and/or how cr*p they really are, but I suspect the player himself has to take some responsibility in this instance. If he was worth a place in the current team then I'm fairly sure Stu would be picking him. But he's gone on loan instead and since injuries don't seem to have been an issue then maybe he should've chosen this route a while ago. Then we might be seeing the kind of impact Caolan Lavery is making right now. I'm not saying it all comes down to attitude, or application or anything but after almost two seasons at the club progress seems worryingly slow at best, or at worst non-existent. He has an opportunity now but if he can't set tongues wagging down at Pompey and rediscover that early promise then he might well find himself back in Scotland, trying to eke out a career with one of the lesser sides, playing in front of a few hundred fans and wondering what might have been. ps... Same could apply to Paul Corry but perhaps (my) expectation levels for him weren't as high, he HAS had a few injury probs and he WAS willing to go out on loan last season. So who knows...

And Richie Barker gets the chop. Can't see that helping Rhys's cause much. Maybe he's paid the price for leaving his new 'star' player on the bench the other night? Or maybe Pompey are in danger of sinking without trace. Tragic really.
