Loan Watch: The Hoff with a brace!

Our latest player out on-loan is Andy Keogh, but he played only the last ten minutes when he replaced Bellamy for his new team Cardiff as they managed to end up victorious against still in administration team Pompey.

But Keogh managed to make some impression in the Premier League aspiring team when he showed some very nice touches and sensible football during his cameo. He attempted an audacious lob of the Pompey keeper with two minutes to go – and in injury time he actually did find the net, but his header was ruled out by the referee’s assistant for offside.

The question is if he is signed to be an understudy of Bellamy sitting on the bench most of the time or if he will be starting any games?!

Carl Ikeme signed as an emergency loan to Leicester City but was seated on the bench in his first match for the club.

Sam Vokes is still at Wolves for rehab after his injury with Bristol City. No reports about his recovery yet.

Natty Mendez-Laing – young winger on loan to Posh – was on the bench against Plymouth for 56 minutes and five minutes after he came on Posh scored their first when Mackail-Smith headed the ball in from six yards.

The lively striker scored a second about fifteen minutes later as Posh owned the second half. A third was scored by Aaron McLean shortly after. I’m not sure if it was because Natty came on that Posh started to produce, but I like to think so. 😆

And let’s not forget our loan to the second tier German club MSV Duisburg. Not on a day like this, anyway. He scored twice against FC Ingolstadt 04. The first one came on a nice header from 10 yards in the 17th minute and the second after a corner in the 19th.

  1. Good goals by the Hoff.
    Honestly, I thought he had a great impact against Blackburn that one time he scored.
    I feel like he has a lot of potential, more with Wolves playing aerial now with Van Damme and Jarvis crossing on every chance they get, but he has such discipline problems, and McCarthy doesn’t like that, but maybe when he returns?

  2. Very impressive. Seems like he’s found his way back to his old goal getter self. Unlike Wolves, Duisburg seems to organize their play around Hoff, making him a central piece of their attacking game by feeding him a lot of aerial balls from the wings. Players must make each other good by playing on their teammates strengths. Otherwise they will be invisible. There’s no doubt a about his aerial capability, but it might not be enough to earn a place in Wolves first team (?).
