More three points on the road will drive Sheffield Wednesday towards a top four finish

Undoubtedly, the January transfer window has been a success for Sheffield Wednesday. I am aware that the Wednesday faithful are more than happy with the constructive signings made in the window as progression continues both on and off the field of play. You could say the best business was done early signing the likes of Gary Hooper and Jack Hunt on permanent deals. Hooper has now bagged seven goals in 14 games and is expected to play...

Millwall mix: Wembley woe, jubilant January business and below-par players

Well; that’s the Wembley dream over, then. For the next three months, anyway. Despite winning the second-leg by a single goal to nil, Oxford United pipped Millwall to the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Final on Tuesday night, as they won 2-1 on aggregate. The Yellows became the third League Two side to dump the south London outfit out of a cup this season, after Barnet and Wycombe’s victories in the Capital One Cup and FA...

What a difference 12 months has made for Rangers

This time 12 months ago, almost to the day, I was sitting down to put together my first piece for Shoot on all things Rangers. The club had just announced five new loan signings from Newcastle United, the boardroom was in turmoil following Dave King’s EGM requisition a few weeks earlier, and the football on display was fairly brutal. It wasn’t a great time for any fan of the club. There was still worse to come over the...

Is it déjà vu for Derby County?

February 28, 2015; a date some Rams fans will not be able to forget in a hurry. Steve McClaren’s men were sitting pretty at the top of the table as they travelled to Craven Cottage, with over 4,000 Rams fans making the journey that day. I was there in west London with family and friends as part of my eldest daughter’s birthday celebrations, and little did we know that game would be the beginning of the end of Derby’s...

A good Deadline Day for Fulham despite the embargo

Who would have thought that a transfer deadline day where we were restricted by an embargo would turn out to be one of the better days of dealings we have experienced as Fulham fans in recent years? Now, there are many of you who will likely say that a couple of loan signings is nothing to get excited about and no doubt our expectations in general have steadily declined along with our stagnation in the Championship. It did however, at...

Transfer window success could define Bolton’s season

So, another transfer window has come to a close, meaning that clubs cannot buy and sell players until the summer months! For Bolton Wanderers, however, it has been a case of making do with what they have – with the beleaguered Trotters currently under a transfer embargo, having breached Financial Fair Play regulations. Hit with a winding-up order, as well as propping up the second-tier, it has been a nightmare season for all...
