    Be interesting to see how he gets on.

    Shame it hasn't worked out here for him but we aren't the first place that has happened.

    He looked okay in his cameo appearances. I was hoping to see more of him but such is life.

    I've said it before on another Ola John thread (and got shot down for it) that a Reading mate of mine who's football opinion I respect, told me he was a very average player for them. I appreciate there was a poll that people love quoting on here by Reading fans, but my friends review was at best he blows hot and cold, and felt that he was never going to cut it at Championship level. I'd rather persevere with Costa & Cavaleiro and let Ronan and Gibbs-White get some game time when needed.

    I also have a Reading ST holding friend and he told me something very similar. Very greedy and goes missing for entire games, but then can show brilliance in flashes.

    Have we ever had a player on loan who never played a game?

    I think so, can't remember who.... we paid 250K for a goalkeeper who never played for us (Kalac)

    Very disappointing signing but not necessarily the players fault. Not having a pop at him or the club here but his moving on won't be a loss.

    Can't say I am overy fussed about Ola going, I fully expected his loan to be terminated in January. Hopefully it saves us some cash.

    Lets hope a few more out the doors before the end of the month.

    I don't know about going missing for entire games he has been missing since August

    Silvio,John ,Prince and Gladon have played virtually no games for us,Tex ,Saiss and CBJ have played a bit more (I haven't included Cav,Bod,Costa ,Lonergan,Stearman and Ruddy) but I would love to know how much the aforementioned 7 have cost us in transfers ,loan fees ,termination fees,agents fees and wages compared to the net benefit we have gained?.I accept that Saiss and Prince may well be here next season but I will lay odds the other 5 at the top won't be (nor will Costa or Stearman but they have played and Costa has been excellent)and it will all just be wasted money that has taken us nowhere .

    Don't understand as he has been almost permanently injured supposedly but one off the wage bill I suppose. Gladon and , sadly Tex, will follow. CBJ already gone of course.

    He was. But step outside the boundary of Wolverhampton and it's like meeting Christ. Watch him never miss a game ever again.

    I'd guess he's on decent wages, best off to get rid of these average squad fillers and put the money saved on their wages towards a good budget in the summer. As Del Boy would say, we'll expand by streamlining.

    He played 3 games for us. 1 in the league cup against Newcastle and 2 appearances against Leeds and Wigan in the league.

    Just 72 minutes in all.

    I have a feeling we've waited for man utd to recall borthwick-j so we can recoup some of the loan fee we paid for him, I think if we sent him back we'd lose it all

    The Brazilian chap maybe, think it was around Hoddle's time. Name escapes me though.

    Agree but if Lambert don't fancy him and it frees up some wriggle room for incomings then it's a good thing. If it doesn't we may as well have kept him as their are worse players I'd have got rid of 1st. Easier said then done I guess as he was only on loan and the ones I mean we own.

    I like how Lambert mentions in his pre-match interview that we aren't close to letting anyone go. Recorded literally a few hours before John signed for Deportivo. :rolleyes:

    Now we have let John go who is the cover for Cav and Costa?
    Wallace seemingly on his way out, Graham still injured, Zyro still injured, Henry staying at Bolton.
    No natural cover for our two star wingers. Cracking stuff!

    Don't worry. Saville can play as a winger.
