Loan Watch: The Hoff scores a brace (video) and more

Andy Keogh was set aside on the bench for Bellamy today – the star back from injury prior to what was expected – and he scored the first Cardiff goal just before half time.

But Barnsley fought pack and former Wolves player Schackell scored (!) to level it up. But another former Wolves player – the Nigerian midfielder Olofinjana found the net for Cardiff after 67 minutes and they could hold out for a win, despite having one man sent off with ten minutes left.

Leicester City – with Carl Ikeme watching their goal – were victorious against Scunthorpe. The now manager less side scored three goals against Scunnies one, perhaps because of manager to be Sven-Goran Ericson watching the game from the VIP booth.

Ericson saw Leicester play a very good game and Waghorn got the first goal and then Dyer the second ten minutes into the second half.

But Ikeme then had to let one in when a Tagwell shot reflected from O’Connor and into the net. Nothing to do about if from Carl, though. Moussa scored the third for Leicester, coming in from the bench in the 87th minute – scoring in the 93rd.

I believe it’s just a matter of time before former England coach Sven Goran Ericsson will be announced as the next manager of Leicester City. The win today put them above the relegation line and I believe they are one of the better teams in the Championship and that the Swede will make them play even better – despite some Leicester fans not too happy about the change of manager.

In League One Peterborough United won against Carlisle away with an only goal by Mackail-Smith after half an hour of the game. Nat Mendez-Laing was on the bench for the match. It was a lucky win for Posh, as Carlisle had many chances to score – a couple of them after mistakes by the Posh keeper Lewis.

Walsall lost again at home against Yeovil. David Davis played for the ninety and provided the free leading to the goal by fouling Shaun McDonald in the 70th minute. Gavin Williams found the head of Adam Virgo just inside the area and he headed into the net brilliantly. And that was to be the only goal of the game.

And. Finally. Wolves striker Stefan ‘The Hoff’ Maierhofer hit gold today as he scored twice – in the 44th and 49th minute – when his team MSV Duisburg did beat Oberhausen with 3-0 yesterday.

Just watch this (5:40 and 8:10 into the clip. And interview after 12:40):

At least and at last some golden on this black day for Wolves.

  1. He is better than Bent, that’s for sure

  2. SOME Leicester fans are against SGE being appointed, SOME Leicester fans are very keen on the idea.., while most appear to live in hope and are willing to give him a fair go?
    A similar situation to that which greeted his appointments with England and Man City?
    For all the gossip mongers and xenophobic exageration within some tabloids, many fans remember the poor state of England in Euro2000 and the way Eriksson created “the golden generation” going on to set several all time records for England including the fastest rise up the FIFA world rankings, the most international points won and the special and unique achievements of cruising to top qualifying place in every tournament and ONLY losing 5 competitive games 2001 – 2006.. Not forgeting the record score England 5 – 1 Germany in Munich? Anyone doubting the “Eriksson effect” need only recall that same “golden generation” crashing out of qualifying for Euro2008 without him?
    Before England, Sven took a series of fairly “low to middle ranking” European league clubs to top domestic and international honours and after England he engineered Man City’s best season in decades including matching the club’s all time record for premier league points won in a single season. (He could have beaten that record if the team had not “worked to rule” on the pitch at the end of the season in protest at his treatment?)
    The vast majority of his ex-players idolise him and both England and Man City Official Fan organisations undertook massive “Save Our Sven” campaigns in an effort to keep him.
    Anyone for Svennis?
    And GOOD LUCK Leicester!

    • I agree that the records of Sven are much better than most British football supporters realises, Svenalike.

      And that you will have alot more to do impersonating him now that he comes back to British football. A very nice, blog, Svenalike. Good luck in the future! And in Leicester City. 😆

  3. The hoff scored? Twice? How many did he get us. I remember 1 on his debut, but it’s all a blank after that.

    • Yes, I believe he fired all blanks after that, Wolfie. But I think he will never get used to British football. The physicality of it and the tempo is too much for the Hoff. Hopefully he will do well in Germany, though, and take his team up to the first league and then perhaps Wolves can get the cash back for him.

  4. I also hope he finds success somewhere else. I always thought even more remarkable than his failure to adapt to the physicality of the british game was that I never saw him win a header he challenged for, no matter how many feet smaller the opponent was.
