Loan Watch: Maierhofer Scores (Video)
MSV Duisburg played early this weekend and had the chance to take the lead in the second Bundesliga if they managed to win against Eintracht Frankfurt at home.
But that was not to be, despite an early goal from no other than the Wolves striker and target man Stefan Maierhofer.
I’ve seen voices on the net now getting louder about why Mick McCarthy didn’t manage to coach this man to make good for us instead of wasting his talent in the backyard of continental football.
And I kind of agree. If only Wolves could have nourished his talent we could have benefitted from him and he would have scored some goals for sure. He scored one, but he has shown in Germany that he had more goals in him.
He has now scored six in the league and eight in total, but that did not help his team today, as they lost with 3-1 at home to Frankfurt and lost their chance to go to the top of the league.
But The Hoff is getting a reputation out there and there are rumours that Duisburg want to sign him on permanent in January before other teams in Germany gets interested in him.
I don’t believe that Stefan wants to play for Wolves or in england any more and I don’t think that Wolves are interested in keeping him, despite his form, so I guess that selling him is the best option for both parties.
But look at his goal tonight. He shows some skills with this head that he didn’t when he was here. Perhaps we weren’t able to get that out of him?
P.S. Many of the games with our other out on-loan players that were scheduled for tomorrow are postponed due to the freaking weather (which I’m totally pissed off about).
But on the other hand we have eleven players out there now and I have hell to catch up with them all and this will make it easier. 😆
