Beattie on loan. Maybe trial. Sky sports.

Believable2 Unbelievable22

Hope it is just an act of kindness,helping him to get fit for someone else

Agree16 Disagree1

Neither. Beattie just training. No chance of a deal what so ever. Just keeping him fit.

Agree12 Disagree2

Hope not cos he is total pants. Can't stand him.

Agree16 Disagree1

If this is just to keep him fit why not train with trotters surely makes more sense

Agree11 Disagree3

Swfc are going to sign Ross barkley from everton on a season long load deal the deal will be done before 31st of August watch this space


Agree6 Disagree2

How can he be on loan? He's a free agent tool

Agree8 Disagree5

That hurts. I made a mistake. Please don't call me a tool again. Beattie in COG out!

Agree3 Disagree14

Beattie and Koumas used as examples to young players if you do not look after themselves this is how you will end up.

Agree11 Disagree1

Don't believe you would say COG out after his start to the season

Agree9 Disagree3

COG out ?? are you mad he's been our best player this season

Agree10 Disagree4

Pork attack on here

Agree9 Disagree1

Must be a blunt

Agree8 Disagree2

Clearly a blunt has said COG out. how can you even fall for that?

Agree5 Disagree3

Beattie great. Get him fast! Great holding ball up and in the air,

Agree2 Disagree9

Yes ideal for a hoof ball team like the Blunts

Agree6 Disagree1

He would never get a game with the talent we got going forward

Agree7 Disagree1

Well done blunt u got the wednesday fans talkin about your reject player. If hes no good for u hes got no chance of even stepping on the sacred s6 turf

Agree3 Disagree1

Beatie training with us . Source sky sports

Believable8 Unbelievable5

Surely you lot must be looking to sign him? Why would he not be training with us of it was just to get fit as he did before! He wasn't the same player when he came back to utd! Would be a bad signing for you IMO! You should hope its only training but really can't understand why he wouldn't be training with UTD if that's the case

Agree0 Disagree0

Rodri deal completed - Official !

Believable26 Unbelievable6

MM - DJ - well done some great signings now we have a chance GREAT We are all behind you in MM and DJ weTRUST also thanks GM

Agree14 Disagree2

How can people disagree with something thats actually happened - obviously bitter and pork scratchins brigade

Agree12 Disagree3

DJ has said he is excited to have landed this kid - thats good enough for me in Dj we trust

Agree9 Disagree3

Worried we are becoming (again) a team of loan players - mercenaries - with no real connection to the club. Is there a limit of how many loan players we can have in a season? What happens when we reach it and have injuries?

Agree1 Disagree20

^^^^^ what?? hes the only loan player we have!

Agree17 Disagree2

I must have missed all the other loan signings....

Agree16 Disagree2

Only loaned one player so far! a complete turn around compared to last season

Agree16 Disagree1

Loan signings what a person

Agree8 Disagree1

Some of the comments are either from non wednesday elements or the lunatic fringe who want to be in charge and constantly whine at management and Directors. They should note use of loan players got us promoted and have played their part in the majority of teams in all divisions Championship downwards getting promoted. It is the way of the world use your brain and stop spouting rubbish.
The comments about Mandaric not spending any money appear to have stopped since it was revealed we paid more money to agents than any other league 1 club. To these people we have plenty of fans who are loyal and do nt constantly question policy. The Allen / Wednesdayite fiasco is not one to be repeated so either shut up or go and support a non league team where your views would get us.

Agree12 Disagree1

One loan and fee agreed if succesful. What a plank.

Agree7 Disagree3

There is always one.

Agree7 Disagree0

He must think were still in league 1 lol what a great signing, cannot wait to see him play tomorrow if he is cleared :)

Agree7 Disagree0

Just introduced out 8th loan signing apparently

Agree1 Disagree6

8th loan signing you on about? uto

Agree4 Disagree0

Barca went out scouted and bought this kid i can remember when barca last saw something in a youngster messi springs to mind or pedro busquets tello xavi iniesta pique fabregas

Agree5 Disagree1

7 goals in 35 Spanish second division games hardly a world beater

Agree4 Disagree6

No but 28 in 50 for seviilla at 19-20 int a bad record

Agree5 Disagree0

I think it's good business to sign him on loan with view to perminant so if he doesn't cut it we lose nothing I have not had this much faith in a manager since big Ron 1990 mm deserves credit I doubt gm would be fetching this type of player in he does deserve credit for starting the giant wheels moving to the promised land uto

Agree5 Disagree0

DJ has brung him in cause of the contacts he's got!

Agree4 Disagree0

Bounce, Bounce
Rodri is out
These are the things that we dream about
O come on!
I'm bouncing for you
O Come on!
Bounce, bounce.......

Agree2 Disagree6

Can we not rise and get ourselves all stressed over these obvious pork scratching attacks - in DJ we trust !

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would their be a limit to how many loan players you can have ? , portsmouth have got 10 players on loan

Agree1 Disagree1

That song is absolutely awful

Agree4 Disagree0

Portsmouth havent got 10 on loan! there on a month contract!

Agree2 Disagree0

If we sign this Rodri character and Ross Barkley on loan this week as is being widely reported, I'll sh$t the Bed! Amazing.

Believable15 Unbelievable0

I do that after 20 s

Agree6 Disagree0

Both have big potential could be on to a winner hope we get both

Agree7 Disagree0

Rodri has signed on official swfc website

Agree5 Disagree0

He has signed

Agree4 Disagree0

Just Barkley to sign now and my Bed sheets will be smelling like brammall lane! UTO

Agree11 Disagree0

It's only a loan deal, hopefully we will sign him on a permenant deal!

Agree4 Disagree1

Everyones getting excited over Rodri and we haven't seen him play yet,he might be cack in English football,calm down a bit

Agree6 Disagree3

To the "cack" poster, if Rodri was good enough for Barca to pay 1.5m for him as a teenager, he won't be a mug.
Barca players don't come and play in England every day, I think Fabregas was last one, so why shouldn't the loyal Owls fans get excited about him ??

Agree10 Disagree2

Just because he played for Barcelona "B" team doesn't mean he's gonna make it over here,let's see the guy play first before we start wetting our pants about him

Agree8 Disagree2

Loan with option to buy fee agreed if hes good we wont have a marshall or antonio situation on our hands.

Agree8 Disagree1

1.5 mil is nothing to barca, its like me or u getting rid of 5p however i think he has the ability to shine for swfc hopefully he can!!

Agree4 Disagree3

There are some miserable b4$t4rds on this website some times, as there are on the Owlstalk forum, though i guess thats the nature of a Yorkshire man. Get excited for once and bore off with this 'im not a pessimist, im a realist' persona, be happy that we're making signings like this because just under 2 years ago, we were on the verge of administration. Go and support Pompey or Rangers where your misery is welcome and justified.

Agree14 Disagree0

Looks like you will be sh$tting urself

Agree2 Disagree0

Are there any enough young Sheffield lads coming through to play for the team though?

Agree2 Disagree2

Because the club has not been structured properly for the last few years that is why DJ MM are starting from scratch.They have signed some good youngsters for the development squad to play alongside one or two good players that have come from the youth set up.If you look at all the signings they are building for the long term not just this season we may not go up this year but next year when these players have matured a bit it will be exciting good times ahead.

Agree5 Disagree0

There's a good chance in us picking him up if the Spanish banks call in Barcas debts, as is being widely banded about. Many are predicting a fire sale if the poo hits the fan in Spain! Rodri will be the least of barcas worries!

Agree9 Disagree0

Barca's Z team is still good enough for championship. UTO.

Also, to the guy who is worried about poo'ing the bed. Well, at least you can change your sheets, but the pigs can't change Bramall Lane.

Agree4 Disagree0

Spanish second division is about equal to our second division

Agree0 Disagree0

'Are there any enough young Sheffield lads coming through to play for the team though?'

As far as I can remember, our most committed, loyal player for the last ten years has been a Scot! Who cares they are from as long as they pitch in and benefit the club either in the short term, or long term.

Agree5 Disagree0

Beevers is great
