West Brom & Sheffield Wednesday fans react to Murphy & Aarons’ displays – What a contrast..

After struggling for game time under Rafa Benitez, both Rolando Aarons and Jacob Murphy made deadline day loan moves to Sheffield Wednesday and West Brom respectively.

Just over a week on and both have made their first appearances for their temporary new clubs – and it seems they’ve had very mixed success.

Aarons has been praised for his impact from the bench following Sheffield Wednesday’s meeting with Reading, but Jacob Murphy – for the second game running – appears to have left Baggies fans hugely unimpressed after making his first start at Stoke over the weekend.

Starting with Aarons, here’s what Sheffield Wednesday fans have had to say:

Some high praise from Owls fans here – with the comment claiming Aarons is the ‘fastest player he’s seen at Hillsbrough’ being quite a compliment!

Unfortunately, the same can not be said about Jacob Murphy so far, with West Brom fans being far from impressed.

He’s only had 1 cameo appearances from the bench and 1 start, but some of these comments following his performance at Stoke on Saturday night seem a little damning:

It’s good to hear Aarons has made an immediate impact (although it is very much early days!), however we’ll be hoping that Murphy can up his game between now and the end of the season.

I’m not overly surprised to hear he’s struggling given how low on confidence he appears to be, but he’ll have to show some form of promise sooner rather than later if he’s ever going to force his way into Rafa’s plans.

One thought on “West Brom & Sheffield Wednesday fans react to Murphy & Aarons’ displays – What a contrast..

  1. I am surprised.
    Thought Murphy had something in him. Hot Air. When the wind gets knocked out, it can take some time for young, immature boys to pick themselves up again. Aarons has floundered for the last two years. Even if Aarons comes good, with the newer talent available and if we stay in the PL, then he will have to become ‘very’ good to have a future at NUFC. Any improvement will just up the possibility of a transfer out (ala Armstrong). If Murphy takes as long, he’ll go the same way. Pretty much, these lads have had their chance (or been given long enough to have had their chance), so will have to ‘impress’ if they want another. Its one of the downsides of Rafa, he churns people. But, given the money involved and the competition available (and with so little proper support from Ashley) he doesn’t have too many options.
