    Rumour on a Wednesday website that he is on a trial run there.
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    Anybody else see this move as a backward step? Fair enough it would probably see him playing week in week out but skill levels alone; surely it would be worth sticking it out til Christmas in Portugal to see if he can break into the team? I know I read somewhere recently where his manager said they were happy with Almond's progress last year, so surely going from there to League One should wait until he's told that he's not wanted any more?
    Owlsfan I'm not knocking Wednesday either, I just don't see the sense in it.

    Agree. Its completely at odds with his interview of just 6 weeks ago as well.
    I thought you were off the drink Ronnie?

    Players and managers are hardly likely to come out and openly criticise the player/club

    TBH I don't think he's good enough for that level. Don't think he's good enough for league one either but good luck to him

    (Oh and I know someone who knows him well and he's a bit of a Mammy's boy. May simply just want to move closer/easier to travel to)

    Of course not but it happens fairly regular (and I dont even use twitter :-). Amond stated that the manager said he was very much in his plans for the coming season. He didnt have to say that in an interview to RTE if it hadnt been relayed to him by the manager. If the manager did say that to him then what has changed in 6 weeks?

    Ive no idea of his qualities or lack thereof - so good luck to him whichever way it goes.

    Hopefully he stays in Portugal now. It's nice to have some of our players playing for European clubs. Better than League One anyway.

    Sheffield isn't in Europe ?

    Trouble is he was rejected as not being good enough for Division One ! Pity.

    The EU passed legislation last week disowning it. It's now up there with Gibraltar, Olivenza, and Berwick-upon-Tweed.

    I wonder do we know the same fella, as I've heard exactly the same thing. I do wonder sometimes.
    That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age

    Wish him all the best and all that.

    But not surprised one bit that Wednesday rejected him. I was even surprised when he was called up to play for the u21s tbh.

    Hope he does well at Accrington or if he returns to Portugal. He's joint top scorer with 4 atm, tied with another Irishman, Kevin Long (defender!).

    Long is off to Rochdale on loan. He tweeted it earlier, but since deleted it because it hasn't been officially confirmed yet. But he's training with them at the moment.
