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.
