Loan Rangers

Loan Rangers

We've had some decent loans for us this season, in and out. With youngsters going out to the lower leagues, amd competing well it gives us great promise.

oing out on loan


Nathaniel Mendez-Laing: Grew as the season went on, used as a good impact player and chipping in with vital goals and assists. Played right wing and up front. He's still very young, and he gives me great hope. 8/10

Danny Batth: Went to Sheffield United and played a grand total of one game (I think) but at their near rivals Sheffield Wednesday he got game time and impressed. He got rave reviews and they are desperate to have him back next season. 7.5/10

Scott Malone: Went to a lower league this year, but did well. Score a couple of goals, set up goals and the Burton fans took to him. Had some injury problems. 7/10

Sam Winnall: Played in the league cup this year, did well and then went on loan to Burton for a while. His goalscoring record was impressive there, notching 8 goals. I'm keen to see more of him, perhaps another loan spell at a higher level.

Ashley Hemmings: Started off well at Torquay, they liked him and extended his loan spell for the whole season. Then he gave away a penalty in the last minute of a game and lost his place, so they ended the loan. 6/10

Jamie Reckord: Almost went to Swansea on loan I heard, but ended up at Northampton. Did okay, didn't play as much as would've liked. Is highly thought of by Wolves, could he be the answer at left back? 6.5/10

Johnny Dunleavy: What a disastrous loan spell. Barnet signed him on loan, barely played at all and has now been released by Wolves. 4/10

David Davis: Played at Walsall and Shrewsbury and was praised in both. Came close to his first team debut this season after an injury crisis, could get a game in the cup if he does well in pre-season. 7.5/10

Sam Vokes: Injured on the opening day of the season and endured a torried time at Brstol. Had a spell at Sheffield United that did not last long but had a good short time with Norwich. In fact, many of the Norwich fans want to sign him for the Premier League. 6/10

Andy Keogh: At the start of the season his asking price was £2.5m, we will be lucky to get 500k for him now. Barely played at Cardiff, then got injured at Bristol City. 3/10

Stefan Maierhofer: Had a good time with Duisburg and his goalscoring record there was excellent. Unfortunately they can't afford to sign him, would we be better off just paying him off? 7/10

Greg Halford: Went to Pompey, and played most of the season at centre back. Hopefully someone will take him off our hands.

Loan in


Michael Mancienne: Probably his worst loan in his three years with us. Injured a lot, didn't play very well in centre midfield but did come good (despite some blunders) at the end of the season. Having a medical with Hamburg, good luck to him. 6/10

Marcus Bent: A hugely popular signing. Just kidding, came as back up and barely played. Seemed like a nice guy for the dressing room. 5/10

Jamie O'Hara: Played a massive role in our survival. This is the quality we are looking to move forward too, and we need to snap him up quick. 8.5/10

I hope I haven't missed anyone, if I have give your own views. If you have any comments about my ratings, get debating!

Paying Maierhoffer off his contract ? Why ? That would mean, we would not only lose the 2 millions paid to him, but aswell the money we would pay him now.... Either use him (I doubt we will have space for that) or sell him, even cheaply.

Agree PanFiluta, he isn't so useless that no one would want him, it is likely that we will have to sell him at a loss, but recouping something is better than nothing.
01/06/2011 10:00:00
Surely getting 500 - 750k for him would be better than nothing , Would pay O hara's wages for half a season hahaha, Danny Batth plays for a team that concedes goals left right and centre and whenever i see the goals going in on the footie league show hes been at fault for quite a few , Pacey and strong but looks very clumsy , Keogh im sure someone will pay 1 mill for an irish international , He just needs a break , I never rated the bloke ability wise but for sheer effort the bloke is second to none a really nice lad and a good pro , Halford we would get again 500k to a mill , Surely Pompeys finances will be clearer and better come the start of next season and we can off load him too , Im guessing 1.5 mill for the 3 will probably be the outcome , I think out of all the above names the only 2 with potential are Winnall and Laing , If the other kids were so good they would be getting game time , Its hard for kids to get a run in the Wolves team when we have such a youthfull first team , Hennessey 24 , Stearman 23 , Zubar 25 , Berra 26 , Mouyokolo 24 , Foley 26 , Elokobi 25 , Edwards 25 , Kightly 25 , Jarvis 25 , Hamill 25 , Guedioura 25 , O Hara ( hopefully ) 24 , Blake 25 , Fletcher 24 , Doyle 27 and Henry and Milijas are 28 with Hunt 29 , 19 players under 30 !!!!!! Only Craddock and Hannehman are old timers , The futures bright the futures Gold :-)

Hey! Less of this ageist talk, Oddjob!
01/06/2011 14:59:00
Hahaha and hey if we get Johnson and Bougherra they are 28/29 so its good MM dont go for over the hill players , I know i keep going on bout Bougherra but i really rate him , Its now rumoured Leicester are after him on a free so if they can get him surely we could !
01/06/2011 17:30:00
How comes, that this Bougherra could be signed for free ? His wikipedia says, that he still has one year on his Rangers contract - even thought he refused to extend it, he will not be for free...
02/06/2011 06:05:00
Yeah the rumour was wrong about him being free , But his contract only has a year to run so Rangers will be forced to sell on the cheap , The " new rumour " is he will go for between 1-2 Million as hes quoted at being desperate to leave this summer !
