McGuinness: I Know I Won't Just Walk Into the Team
Tuesday, 22nd Sep 2020 18:29

New loan signing Mark McGuinness is looking forward to getting some first-team experience under his belt in his season with the Blues.

The Republic of Ireland U19 international joined Town on loan for the campaign earlier this evening and knows he has a fight on his hands to claim a place in the side with Toto Nsiala and James Wilson currently the centre-halves with skipper Luke Chambers, currently playing at right-back, Luke Woolfenden, who is out with a knock at present, and Corrie Ndaba also vying for the spots.

"I am very happy to be here," McGuinness told the club site. "After getting the deal sorted I was really looking forward to training and it went well. I met the group this morning - they’re a great bunch of lads.

"I’m hoping to be involved in plenty of first-team matches here. The lads have started really well, so I know I’ll have to impress and I won’t just walk into the team, but I’m up for the challenge.

"My main priority is defending and I want to help the team keep as many clean sheets and be as solid as possible.

"I also enjoy getting on the ball, though. I can see this squad try to play out from the back and that’s something that will suit me and benefit me.

"The experience here could be invaluable to me. I want to make the most of it and help the club achieve what it wants."

Well done Lambert and co, he is a very bright rising star at Arsenal, I just hope it doesn't open the door for Woolfie.

Looks a great prospect. If he has a decent passing range with accuracy he will be one up on Wilson. Mark Venus the 2nd would be cool.

Whether he’s hard or soft , I’m sure his arrival will be feta’d by the majority and won’t leave us feeling blue......

Edam well better be good this boy, Stilton know why Woofy is not well enough to play, they are keeping that one quiet. Wotsit going to be as a pairing now in the middle?

Heard he has a few tricks from the back this lad, I couldn't care less if he could mascarpone as long as he can defend though. Glad we've signed him before he got Gouda though. Heard he was close to signing a similar deal with Red Leicester!

Had heard we were linked with some Italian centre half called Mozzarella, so just glad we've got someone!
