Vital Sheffield Wednesday talks to a Scunthorpe United season-ticket holder to get the lowdown on Drew Talbot's current loan-deal with the League One high-flyers.
1. How has Drew settled in since making his move?
Saturday`s game was his first start for us, so it was the first chance we have really had to judge him. His other appearance came as a sub against Oldham and we were down to 9 men at the time. I would say that Talbot has settled in well since making his move from Sheffield Wednesday, we have some good forwards at the club so the extra competition should bring out the best in all of them.
2. What were your expectations when he arrived and how has he lived up to them?
Like any forwards we sign we have high expectations, it`s not easy for forwards to come to us at the moment because our expectations have been raised with the two quality forwards we have (Sharp and Keogh). He arrived as back up for our deadly duo Sharp and Keogh (now gone to Wolves!). In my opinion I like to see a forward who has a good work rate and from what I have seen of Talbot so far he is that sort of player.
3. What are his stats like at the moment for you? Is he getting a fair crack at the whip?
He has scored 1 goal from 1 start so he`s doing alright so far. He'll get a fair crack as we're going down to the bare bones at the moment with injuries and suspensions and of course the sale of Keogh to Wolves.
4. Would you fancy keeping him permanently, and if so, do you think your manager wants to?
Laws has already said there is no chance we will be getting him permanently but if we had the option of extending his loan then I certainly wouldn`t complain. You never know he may end up being the replacement for Andy Keogh who looks like he is Wolves bound - we have some cash to spend now we've sold Keogh.
5. What have been his strengths and weaknesses?
It`s not easy to judge because he has only made one start. His work rate is top notch and he doesn`t stop running, he also has a bit of pace. From my early impressions he looks like a confidence player, his goal on Saturday seemed to give him a big lift.
