This was the very last match of their campaign and it was the way that the club needed to end their season which was filled ups and downs but even with this sensational final victory, their campaign concluded with a bittersweet taste as they lost a coach in the process.
After having spent over 2 years as a manager and as a player as well, Danny Wilson was sacked due to the amount of disappointing results that Barnsley sustained and Lee Johnson replaced Wilson.
Barnsley eventually went on to claim the 11th spot of the English League One and even though the season only reached it’s end a few weeks ago, Lee Johnson is already outlining his plans for the future.
Lee Johnson is planning to make a few changes with hopes that the team can battle for the top spots of the English League One and one of these adjustments is to allow the younger players to have their time at the spotlight and prove their worth.
The 34 year old English coach of Barnsley, Lee Johnson said: “If you’re good enough, then you’ll play in my team, that’s what I’ve always said.I’ve been impressed with the youngsters this season and they’ve shown they’re not out of their depth.George has been the surprise package for me, he’s got better as the season has gone on and he’s proven he can cope at this level.But the same goes for Mason and James, who have also impressed me.” Continue Reading “Lee Johnson is ready to give youth a chance to step up”

David de Gea has dismissed suggestions that his place at Manchester United is under threat from Victor Valdes, who is reportedly on the verge of signing for the Premier League outfit. The former Barcelona goalkeeper is currently available as a free agent after having left the Catalan club in the summer. He was initially expected to join Monaco, but an anterior cruciate ligament injury towards the end of last season has put him on the sidelines until now. After recovering, he has been surprised to find that Monaco will no longer be able to afford him after going through huge budget cuts.
Valdes has been looking for a new club in the last few months and United have emerged as a surprise destination. De Gea has been performing brilliantly under Louis Van Gaal. His impeccable saves alone have been responsible for rescuing a number of points for the club. The 24-year-old came to United in an £ 18 million deal two years ago. Andres Lindegaard is the current understudy to De Gea, but it is thought that he is extremely unhappy with the lack of first-team opportunities. The Danish goalkeeper may be allowed to leave in January with Valdes coming as his replacement.
Valdes is one of the established names in the game after having won numerous titles with Barcelona. “Yes, my contract runs out in 2016 but they didn’t sign him for that. Victor had a difficult injury, he had a bad time and the boss knows him well and has given him the opportunity to recover there. Victor is training over in Manchester; he’s still not 100 per cent after his injury. When he is fully fit he will start to train with us. He’s still not training in goal with us. From time to time he comes out with the goalkeeping coach but very little still,” said De Gea.
