Loaner Report 5/4/11

Sorry for the tardiness of this post. I don’t really have an excuse, as it’s not like our boys were up to much…

Diomansy Kamara came off the bench in the 51st minute in Leicester City’s 1-1 draw with Doncaster Rovers on Saturday.

Kagisho Dikgacoi did not dress in Crystal Palace’s 1-1 draw at Hull City on Saturday.

Eddie Johnson did not dress in Preston North End’s 2-1 loss at Ipswich Town on Saturday.

Bjorn Helge Riise started and played 71 minutes in Sheffield United’s 2-2 draw with Barnsley on Saturday. Sheffield United have been relegated from the Championship.

Lauri Dalla Valle was an unused substitute in Bournemouth’s 2-2 draw at Hartlepool on Saturday. The draw clinches Bournemouth’s playoff credentials as the sixth spot.

Keanu Marsh-Brown started and played 73 minutes in MK Dons’ 2-1 win over Notts County on Saturday.

    1. Not sure about the young Finn to be honest. Sure, he scored on his debut and then started the next four games. But after that he just played 62 minutes in seven games.

      Keanu Marsh-Brown was more productive it seemed.

      And Eddie? Well…

      1. And KD didn’t even get in the Palace team this week. That surprises me a bit. I had high hopes for him.

  1. I’m a Fulham fan who lives in Bournemouth and occasionally watches the Cherries. Dalla Valle has made a very positive impact on the Bournemouth fans. Him not playing is more due to the balance of the forward line – the need for a big targetman alongside either him or the in form 18 year old Danny Ings (watch out for that name in the future, by the way). Dalla Valle is the better finisher of the two, but Ings seems better equipped for the rough and tumble of league one at the moment.

    For what it’s worth, Having seen LDV start against Tranmere, I think he could do with another loan spell next season, maybe at a Championship club to develop a bit more nouse about dealing with the physical side of the game. Once he learns that, he’s got a good chance of making it with Fulham.
