Paul Hecking bottom admits that Barnsley can’t afford Matty James

Posted by index on

The head coach of Barnsley FC, Paul Heckingbottom has recently announced that the English League Championship club will not be able to keep hold of the 25 year old loaneeMatty James and the English player is very likely to be returning to his parent club Leicester City at the end of the season.


Matty James penned a loan deal with Barnsley FC which will be keeping him in the English League Championship outfit until the summer of 2017 and even though it has only been around 1 month since James arrived to Barnsley FC, he has already made a positive and significant impact in the club.

Fans of the English outfit want to see Matty James remain further than the initial loan deal but it seems like it will not be happening as Paul Heckingbottom confirmed that Barnsley FC simply cannot afford to pay the wages of James and have no other option but to release him back to Leicester City.

JOKANOVIC – WINNALL DOES NOT AFFECT BARNSLEY GAME

Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic has said that the same of Sam Winnall from the club would not impact their game when they face Barnsley on Saturday.


The player is wildly expected to join Sheffield Wednesday when he completes his medical on Thursday, according to reports making the rounds in the transfer market.

Winnall’s current deal is set to lapse at the end of this term but he has opted to move to Barnsely despite being earlier linked with a move to Brentford. He has scored 11 goals in 23 games for the Tykes this campaign to make his total at Oakwell 48 after two and a half years. He was shortlisted for the PFA Championship Player of the Month award last month but it was eventually awarded to Leeds player Pontus Jansson.

“We follow all the information about Barnsley but this is not in my control. I have to work with my team and fully focus on preparing for what we must do in the game.

Barnsley has boosted their chance to make it to the play-offs by winning a difficult match at Port Vale. The match ended 1-0 thanks to a goal from ConorHourihane, but the game itself was far from being convincing by the away side.

Paul Heckingbottom, Barnsley’s temporary manager, was keen to acknowledge that the way his team played was far from being perfect. He believes that his players will need to lift their games if they want to make it to the play-offs.

Leeds United go into the new campaign with aspirations

Leeds United go into the new campaign with aspirations about being promoted to the Premier League but it will be easier said than done since the club has been in this situation more often than not in the last five years.

The current ownership of the club has also not provided the stability that is required to put together a title challenge. This could change in the coming campaign with former Wigan manager Uwe Rosler at the helm. The German says that he is prepared for a long campaign up ahead. Even now, many are starting to doubt the longevity of Rosler given the average results in the club’s recent friendly matches.

After having played three friendly matches so far, Leeds have yet to taste a success.Rosler will come under increasing pressure ahead of the next couple of matches – against Hoffenheim and Everton. Even though these are just pre-season friendly matches designed to build the fitness of the players, it would also be helpful in getting the manager more information about the players at his disposal. However, two draws and one defeat in the three games is certainly not confidence inspiring. The team open the campaign with a home game against newly relegated Burnley.

Sam Allardyce is sacked by West Ham United and now the search for a new manager begins

The beginning of the season was a sensational one for West Ham United and Sam Allardyce as the club managed to claim huge victories against big clubs such as: Manchester City and Liverpool. This allowed West Ham United to compete in the higher spots of the Premier League for a few weeks but things began to collapse in the 2nd half of the season as they slipped points and spots in the English until eventually managing to secure the 12th spot of the Premier League.

It seems like claiming the 12th position wasn’t good enough for the head chiefs of West Ham United as it has been confirmed that Sam Allardyce was not offered a contract extension and the manager had to leave his managerial role at the club.

The announcement was made to the public less than 24 hours after West Ham United played their last match of the season against Newcastle United on May 24 in a match that concluded with a final scoreboard of 2-0.

There is a list of managers who are rumored to being selected as the new manager of West Ham United including: Carlo Ancelotti, Rafael Benitez, Andre Villas-Boas and Steve McClaren.
