Walsh extends loan but Rodriguez returns to Finch Farm

14/04/2016  13 Comments  [Jump to last]
Liam Walsh has had his loan with Yeovil Town extended to the end of the season while Leandro Rodriguez has had his spell with Brentford curtailed by injury.

Walsh has made a big impact with the League Two club since joining them in January and has made a dozen appearances, scoring one goal.

Rodriguez's hopes of building up some first-team experience with the Bees in the Championship have been hampered by a hamstring problem, however, one that restricted him to two appearances.

He has now returned to Finch Farm to undergo treatment on the soft-tissue injury.

Leandro Rodriguez, Arouna Kone, David Henen & Oumar Niasse, Roberto sure does have an eye for a striker. At least you got Romelu Lukaku right Roberto; he was good when he was interested, back before his agent turned his head.

Does anyone know how he Rodriguez played in his 2 appearances? There's scant details anywhere else.

By leaving all business until the window is virtually closed means we never get our first choice of targets. I do not believe that any of the above signings were original targets.

It has been the club policy to leave everything until the last day so I do not blame the manager. I would love to see who were the actual targets when the transfer window opened.

Moyes was in the same predicament and IMO it was frustration that led him to leave us. I just hope that Moshiri lives up to his promises.

Rodriguez, like Niasse, like Henen, like Traore is probably not cut out for the demands of Premier League football.

To be fair he's only come here for the experience in all likelihood, he didn't cost much, he was merely a punt.

Sadly we can never match that club for standards set both on and off the pitch!!

Until Everton Football Club tear up the blueprint and start again, sadly the ambitions will never match that of our long suffering fans.

I've got a couple of pals who are Brentford fans. Their view on Rodriguez was nippy, and hard working followed by half as good as Chris Long!!

Jesus, Henen and this boy are already lambs to the slaughter. Didn't Barkley get sent back from Leeds and didn't set fire to Wednesday either, but hey let's dismiss these lads already before they've been given a chance.

I reckon there's plenty of Tottenham supporters who thought the same of Harry Kane.

Agreed Liam Reilly.

Very true, Liam, Henen did really well for the U21s. I do think Rodriguez is injury prone though 3rd time he's had a problem. There are other gems, Brewster is supposed to be very good, Anthony Evans scores for fun and Nathan Broadhead does the same. All three highly regarded!

Liam, the Leeds and Wednesday supporters at the time were delighted to have had Barkley and gave Warnock much grief for the way he didn't play him. Track down and read some of the supporters blogs from that period if you like. I posted some extracts on TW some time ago to that effect when Barkley was getting inaccurate and unnecessary stick on here.

Wednesday fans thought highly of Barkley. Maybe they'd like him back?

Jim Bennings (#5).

I think we should look more to the lower leagues for players. I think you think similar Jim.

There are some really good talent around. The likes of James Norwood from Tramere. I think he could be the next Vardy.

And there is another Striker called Omar Bogle, Grimsby Town he 23 and knows were the net is.
