Bradford Lose Again To Plymouth Argyle

Bradford City have lost yet again but now to Plymouth Argyle. Despite the sack of Stuart McCall, things have not changed much at the side. Simon Grayson could not inspire the team to success against Plymouth. Loanees Stephen Warnock and Matty Lund could not do anything to stop the losses as well.

 

Warnock and Lund were expected to help City stop the bleeding that has seen the team slide off the League One playoff spots. Grayson played Warnock in the left back role at Home Park while Lund started from the bench but the damage had been done. Plymouth’s Antoni Sarcevic’s lone goal before half time was enough to separate both sides. The Burton Albion on loan stars will need to do more to help Bradford achieve their aim as the season gradually draws to a close. Continue reading “Bradford Lose Again To Plymouth Argyle”

Warnock Blames Conte

Former Blackburn defender Stephen Warnock believes that Antonio Conte is only to blame for the anticipated exit from Chelsea. The Italian is widely expected to leave the blues at the end of the campaign after a disastrous season that saw the club finish outside the top four for the second time in the last five years. Despite winning the league title 12 months ago, Chelsea were unable to build on the success. The 3-5-2 formation played a huge role in Conte’s immediate success but the lack of good signings led to the club following way off the pace in the 2017-18 campaign.

Apart from the lack of impact on the pitch and within the squad, Warnock also says that Conte has not been able to handle himself in the best possible manner in front of the media. Throughout last summer, Conte was moaning about the lack of signings and this led to the club hurriedly bringing in the likes of Alvaro Morata – even though Romelu Lukaku was the first choice for the manager. There has been significant shakeup in the backroom staff with Michael Emenalo leaving the club after a decade. Most of the summer signings did not prove to be a success, but Emenalo did an extremely good job at the club. Continue reading “Warnock Blames Conte”

Matty Lund, Jake Buxton are all of the other signings that Burton Albion has made, all of which were free transfers.

According to Stephen Warnock, the English Football League Championship is one of the most difficult football competitions as the 35 year old defender said:

¨I think it’s very difficult, with the teams that have come down from the Premier League and the teams that have come up from the other division. You look at it and you’ve got to understand that this is one of the toughest leagues in the world now. So you have got the big teams at the top that are willing to spend mega-money, but nobody wants to drop out of this division either¨

¨I think survival has got to be your main thing. I think that’s a success for a club like Burton. Within the Championship, the amount of money that’s getting thrown about, I think it’d be a great achievement¨ Continue reading “Stephen Warnock is the 3rd summer signing of Burton Albion”

Warnock on Villa

Former Aston Villa defender Stephen Warnock said that it was an honor for him to have played for them.


The defender spent four seasons with Villa before signing for Wigan.

He said that he spent four seasons with Aston Villa with mixed fortunes. He said that the first two was very good in terms of performance and playing time, but unfortunately, things changed later on, and he had some frustrating moments as well.

Stephen Warnock wanted a victory against Derby but settled with a draw

Wigan Athletic is struggling in the bottom section of the English League Championship and Stephen Warnock wanted to see his team start picking themselves up with a triumph over against their rivals Derby County.


Both sides locked horns on December 31st of 2016 and the match resulted in a goal-less draw with each team having to settle with 1 point. This is not the result that Stephen Warnock and the rest of his teammates wanted to see but considering the fact that Derby County was controlling the match from start till the end and had over 60% of possession, being able to secure a draw is a good result for Wigan Athletic, as they need all of the points they can get in order to start climbing spots and escape the relegation zone.

Before Wigan Athletic had faced off with Derby County, Stephen Warnock spoke his mind about what is going on with his team and why they have been sustaining so much negative results and the 35 year old defender said: Continue reading “Stephen Warnock wanted a victory against Derby but settled with a draw”

JOYCE WORRIED OVER FITNESS OF SUMMER SIGNINGS

Warren Joyce has expressed worry over fitness concerns of his injured players.


The injured defenders Reece Burke – on a season long loan from Premier League side West Ham – and Nathan Byrne picked up the knock over the weekend clash. Wigan Athletic lost at home by a lone goal to Derby County and the two late cry-offs were another worry for the coach who only signed both of them this summer.

Warren Joyce has expressed worry over fitness concerns of his injured players.


The injured defenders Reece Burke – on a season long loan from Premier League side West Ham – and Nathan Byrne picked up the knock over the weekend clash. Wigan Athletic lost at home by a lone goal to Derby County and the two late cry-offs were another worry for the coach who only signed both of them this summer.

While the Hammers loanee had a problem with his hips, Bryne has issues with his ankle. Joyce had to employ Luke Garbutt as right back instead of his usual left back position. The move ensured the Latics did not enjoy him down the flank, as he could not cut in using his left as he was supposed to.

“Reece and Nathan pulling out injured was another curve-ball for us, leaving us without a right back. Luke, I don’t think has ever played right back before, and you’re asking him to come cross. I’m trying to talk about consistency, and players playing in the same position,” Joyce confessed.

“Bu we’ve not been able to forge that because of a mixture of injuries, knocks and even illness,” he added.
Since Kyle Knoyle’s injury during his first training session, the club is still struggling to find a capable right back. Knoyle broke his elbow during the training after agreeing to spend a year on loan with Wigan.

Joyce claims that the absence of a natural right back is “the biggest problem.” Natural centre half Burke has been playing the role in a bid to manage the players left.
“Reece has done a tremendous job for us, but he probably regards himself more of a centre back. But that’s just circumstances, and you’re asking players to adapt, as we did when Stephen Warnock has filled in at left centre back,” Joyce said.
