Bakinson Joins Owls
Thursday, 21st Jul 2022 18:29

Former Blues loanee Tyreeq Bakinson has completed his move from Bristol City to Sheffield Wednesday.

Bakinson, 23, who joins the Owls for an undisclosed fee, spent the second half of last season on loan at Portman Road, scoring twice in 14 starts and three sub appearances.

The move, which followed criticism of the one-time Luton youngster by Robins manager Nigel Pearson, was with a view to the deal becoming permanent in the summer.

However, the Blues subsequently signed Dominic Ball following his release by QPR, which appeared to end Town’s interest, although manager Kieran McKenna subsequently suggested Bakinson could still be in his thoughts after the friendly at Needham Market.

Bakinson had been training with the Robins’ U23s and hasn’t featured in any of their pre-season friendlies.

An excellent signing for them and a great career move for him. Disappointed we didn't follow up on this one after he put in a really good shift last season. He's likely to achieve success this season, hopefully not at our expense. Good luck to him.

A player who probably is incredibly decent at this level, sadly anybody in this league who plays alongside Morsy (who for me is the best best midfielder in the league) is going to look inconsistent. I think Bakinson will become a solid Championship player over time though.

Good player, suspect attitude in the past, but definitely a quality signing for them at this level. Thing is, we needed someone in the style of Ball more to compliment our midfield in the formation that KMcK favours. Ball will add more strength & defensive quality, to allow the attack minded (flair) players, including Morsy, be forward thinking & direct to goal.

Hope Ball is better than him as I thought he got better as the games went on, excellent goal against Charlton

RegencyBlue added 19:06 - Jul 21
This could come back to haunt us but at the moment I think Ball is a significant upgrade.

Time will tell!

Agree with Len. Bakinson did some good things but equally could be very frustrating. Didn't let us down though, but just didn't tick enough boxes.

Good luck to him hopefully not at our expense.

Feel confident that McKenna and the Recruitment Team are identifying the type of player we need to move on.

Good luck to him but with our signings our manager has made a we don't need him statement over to him if it goes tits up but i don't think it will he signs people with the work and attitude ethic that he wants.

With Morsy, Evans and Ball we simply didn’t need him. Left sided player and striker the priorities.

We didn't sign him for a reason - he would not have had much playing time but for the Evans injury. He's okay but surprising that Wednesday want him given their promotion ambitions.

Nomore4 added 19:47 - Jul 21
Ball the much better player.

cressi added 20:02 - Jul 21
Personally although he got better I never felt he was good enough if we had high aspirations. Ball will allow Morsey to be far more dynamic

Jayswitch....why on every post that mentions 'twtd understands' do u make a comment like their is some kind of isdue with it........hmmmm maybe phils not the one with problem 🤔

Nobbysnuts added 20:26 - Jul 21
Not interested in where he's gone to be honest...really doesn't concern us. A complete non story to itfc.

Gforce added 20:39 - Jul 21
I've noticed Portsmouth have signed Colby Bishop from Accrington today,a very good addition for them,who I think will perform well alongside Pigott.
Shame we weren't in for him,as he would have been a decent addition to our squad.
All being well though KM has got a quality striker lined up very soon.

Lathers added 20:51 - Jul 21
We don’t want average. He wants regular football but won’t get it at Wednesday or Ipswich. I can see him moving on loan in January to find regular football, maybe even to L2.

runningout added 21:24 - Jul 21
deceivingly decent player. Made a few booboos but I reckon he’ll do okay. But like someone said okay isn’t what teams need

oldblue added 21:45 - Jul 21
Just not quite good enough..First touch not up to standard KmK requires..worldy goal covered up his shortcomings ...

Fat_Boy_Tim added 22:03 - Jul 21
Just like us there are Sheff W fans looking at the highlights reel and the last thing on it will be that worldly against Crewe! I hope he does well but I think playing Morsy will scare the crap out of him!

alanmason added 22:46 - Jul 21
The Worldy took a sizeable deflection, so not relevant!

DavoIPB added 22:48 - Jul 21
Great player at breaking up play. Read the game very well. I think mk does know what he is doing but seems like Sheffield Wednesday have compiled a stronger Team.

churchmans added 22:52 - Jul 21
If we don't sign a 20+ goalscoring striker to the current squad then we ain't going out simple as that

Solid Championship player, Sheff Wednesday have made an excellent signing there.

Jugsy added 23:17 - Jul 21
Agree with Lathers and many others. Not better than what we’ve got, McKenna played his cards well at a time we needed cover. Can’t see him starting in the Sheff W side who have the best squad in the division. A straight choice between Evans and Bakinson? Ball and Bakinson? Lest we forget Humphreys who many want to see come through? What about Harper? He’s average vs those options (Harper the exception, work in progress).
