Steven Bahre Says Barnsley Has A Bright Future

Mike Steven Bahre the new signing admitted how big and popular at club Barnsley is and is proud to be a part of it. The midfielder from Germany made his move from Hannover to English football in the end of august beating the deadline of the loan within a few minutes. Bahre was unaware of what he has got himself into post his swapping to League One from Bundesliga. However, in no time realized the popularity of the club, especially after he played 2 matches in his first week of joining.

As far as the Checkatrade Trophy is concerned, it is known to be a not so big competition. However, 433 Reds travelled to the Pennines just to see Bahre showing his outstanding debut with a victory of 2-1 in Oldham. Thereafter, the 23 year old performed for 90 minutes at Oakwell and said he has been surprised as its much bigger club than he actually thought. It is certainly not like that third league, but a competitive sector with some great players and best quality players.

One of the main reasons for the arrival of Bahre at Barnsley was none other than Daniel Stendel who was managing his compatriot at Hannover. He was appointed as a head coach of Reds in June and soon after recognizing players to make his side strong to lead the club. Bahre said it was his wish to be there, but when the manager was at Barnsley and told him he wished to take him along, he immediately agreed. In fact, Stendel is the big reason for his decision of joining the club. Bahre is quite pleased to be a part of Barnsley and is hopeful to do something big to make the club proud. The Reds are all set to welcome back Kenny Dougall and Adam Davies from their international duty to prepare for the League One of Coventry.

Noel: Leeds Must Not Axe Roofe

Noel Whelan says it would be unfair for Thomas Christiansen to axe Kemar Roofe from his Leeds United squad to play Burton at Elland on Saturday. Roofe, who is 24 years old, has led the line of attack in his last two appearances for the Whites in the absence of a natural striker due to Chris Wood’s sale and Caleb Ekuban’s injury. However, the former West Brom attacker has been impressive recently, scoring four goals in those two matches, including a stunning hat-trick against Newport County in the Carabao Cup.

Leeds have since brought in Pawel Cibicki and Pierre-Michel Lasogga at the back end of the transfer window and although Whelan expects the latter to start, he thinks it would be unfair on Roofe. “I think one of the [new] strikers will play,” said the former Whites striker on BBC Radio Leeds, as shown on the BBC website. “I’m probably leaning more towards Lasogga to start tomorrow [Saturday]. “Obviously someone is going to miss out on the wings.

“Oli is a player that we targeted early this summer and have successfully brought to the club. It’s not been a secret we wanted him. He is a Yorkshire lad and has jumped at the chance to come here on loan for the season. He will add some height, he is 6ft 2, is a goal threat, along with that raw element of being an unknown quantity to Championship defences. I am looking forward to him coming into training and getting started.”

This was the statement released by Barnsley’sHeckingbottom said as he talked about Oliver McBurnie who was signed by Barnsley on the last day of the transfer window.
