Loan watch: Vokes is out of of Leeds for good

These are our players going away on-loan – How are they doing?

Let us start by saying that our first loan-out Carl Ikeme is still out injured and couldn’t play for Blades as they won against Preston.

Our second loan-out Danny Batth stayed on the bench for Colchester when they won against Southampton at home. Reid did well and kept a clean sheet – which means that Batth stayed at the bench, I’m afraid.

Our third loan-out is Scott Malone. He played – as usual – for Southend – and they won against Leyton Orient away.

The Chesterfield game was Postponed. Mark Little had a cool Christmas.

David Jones didn’t play – as usual – against Burton Albion,  when Notts did win by 4-1.

Finally. Leeds did win by 4-2 against Stockport, but they did not win easy. But our loan-out Sam Vokes were nowhere – not on the bench –  and may very well be back in Wolves very soon. but we may need him!

  1. Sam Vokes has been a huge disappointment, Mr Flea. Certainly not a natural goalscorer. He’s slow, lumbering and underconfident. He’s had enough chances to get at least 10 goals during his time here but simply doesn’t appear to posess the quickness of thought to bury chances unless they’re from 2 yards into an open net (like his solitary goal vs Bristol). In all honesty, our very own target man, Luciano Becchio, is better in almost every way and showed us what were were missing when he ousted Vokes from the side upon returning from the injury that forced us into bringing in Vokes. Vokes has scored one goal and created exactly zero goals for his teammates. Not what we were expecting from a international premiership striker at all and he won’t be coming back to you particularly fitter (his last appearence was as sub two weeks ago) or more confident than when he left. Good luck to Wolves for the rest of the season btw.

    • There has been so many reports from Leeds supporters that Sam Vokes has not played well when on loan at your place that I must believe you.
      I hope that the people at Wolves can sort out why Sam is not developing his skills in the right direction. He is though still a young player and this set-back maybe could be reversed and he could turn to the right path again and continue to develop as a player.

  2. I was going to post a comment but Cheekywhite summed it up really.
    If you think Vokes is the answer the your prayers, see you in Championship next year.

  3. When I saw sam Vokes a couple of seasons ago playing for Bournmouth I thought he had the makings of a great player and was excited we had him on loan but he simply hasnt progressed at all.All his spontaneity has gone and he want one touch too many all the time. His effort levels are not what you expect from a player of his age either. Hope he finds his way out of his slumpo but I dont expect to see him play for Leeds again.
