Loan Watch: Malone saved on line and Hemmings played

High time to take a look at our players out on-loan and what they have been up to in the weekend.

Stefan Maierhofer – loaned out to MSV Duisburg in the German 2nd Bundesliga for the season – is still playing very well and is the star of the club.

But he is only valued to £1.25 million so he must have done something wrong – probably at our place. Or there is always the possibility that wolves gave away too much money to sign him.

Anyway. They played Aachen in the weekend and managed a draw. Not very good as they were tipped to win. They probably only got a draw because a player was sent off. But The Hoff played well, despite not a goalscorer in a match that ended two all. They are still third in the league, but now a couple of points behind the first two.

Andy Keogh – on a season- long loan to Cardiff in the Championship – didn’t get any playing-time for new league leaders when they played against Scunthorpe.

Bellamy played together with high flying former Wolves player and England international to be Jay Bothroyd upfront.

They won with four goals against two and Bothroyd didn’t disappoint anybody when he smashed in two balls in the net – the first after just two minutes. Let’s hope he gets some playing time against France!

And that Keogh gets some in the next Cardiff game. He didn’t make it to the Republic Of Ireland squad, by the way. But Hunt, Doyle and Foley did.

Sam Vokes – is on the payroll of Bristol City in the Championship until January 6, but is still injured (hamstring) and will be out a couple of more weeks.

I’m not sure if he will be fit in time to play for Bristol – at least not this year – but depending on injuries in their team they may want him for the season?!

Greg Halford – out on loan to Portsmouth in the Championship for a month – played against Doncaster for the first time in fourteen years, I believe,  in a match they lost after David Healey decided the game and gave Donny an away win with 3-2.

I wouldn’t be too surprised if they opted to have him for another month,

If we don’t need him back, but I don’t believe so.

Carl Ikeme – is back in Leicester in the Championship for a third loan period (month). But it doesn’t seem that they want him to play.But then again they did win against Derby with 2-0.

For the third match running he was not on the bench either. Perhaps their keepers learn all of his tricks and then we take him back, but there are rumours that Ericsson wants him on a permanent.

Matt Hill – on a one month loan to Barnsley in the Championship, but is injured – I believe it was a broken foot-bone (metatarsal) – and probably back in Wolves.

Barnsley has actually done really well without him – winning against both Ipswich and Preston away. With former Wolves player Shackell playing in their back line.

Nathaniel Mendez-Laing – will be in Peterborough in League One until end of season.

Posh is in trouble and have now dropped below the play off spots after being trashed by Charlton with five goals against one at home.

Nat only played the second half – in which they played 1-1 against the now second team in League One. He got rather good ratings from the fans, but manager and Wolves fan Gary Johnson seem to be in trouble. Many fans want him to leave now. There were high hopes of promotion in Posh before the season.

Ashley Hemmings – on a one month loan to Torquay in League Two – finally got some playing time. He played for forty minutes when they played a 1-1 draw with bottom of the league team Barnet.

Not the best of games, as I understand. Their manager says that the goal in the first half was the only good thing that happened to them.

Scott Malone – on a one month loan to Burton Albions in League Two – played as a winger against league leaders Chesterfield and they won the game with two goals against one. First home league defeat for their opponents and the first away win for Burton. Not bad.

Burton player Harrad scored their second in the 84th minute. And Scott managed to claim all three points for them when he saved on the line towards the end of the game. Bravo!
