Loan report- Eventful debut for Martinez; frustration for Campbell and Podolski

Emiliano Martinez had an eventful debut for Rotherham United yesterday.

The Argentinean goalkeeper joined the Championship side on an emergency loan deal on Friday which is set to run until the end of the season, and was thrown straight into the action against Sheffield Wednesday, with whom he had a successful loan spell last campaign. Martinez made a couple of excellent saves in the first-half.

However, he conceded three late goals, including two in injury time, as Sheffield Wednesday eventually prevailed with a 3-2 victory.

Carl Jenkinson played the entirety of West Ham United’s 1-0 victory over Sunderland.

Lukas Podolski started on the right wing but was substituted in the 87th minute as Inter Milan were beaten 1-0 by Sampdoria.

Joel Campbell started and was deployed on the left wing before later being substituted as Villarreal lost 2-0 to Sevilla.

Wellington started but was replaced after 61 minutes as Almeria were beaten 2-1 by Athletic Bilbao. The Brazilian’s cross led to an own goal by Mikel Balenziaga.

Jon Toral was introduced in the 71st minute of Brentford’s 2-2 draw with Millwall, with the Spaniard setting up a chance for Jota.

Yaya Sanogo was an un-used substitute as Crystal Palace beat Stoke City 2-1.

Josh Vickers played as Concord Rangers beat Weston-Super-Mare 2-1.

Ryo wasn’t involved as Twente drew 2-2 with Groningen, but the Japanese winger did feature for Twente’s B team against Helmond Sport last week.



  1. It kinda looks as if Miyaichi’s loan to Twente hasn’t exactly been a rip-roaring success…
    Do you think that Wenger may move him on this summer Jeorge?
