York City battle Rotherham to seal Danny Kearns loan deal

YORK City could lose out to League Two rivals Rotherham in the battle to recruit Peterborough midfielder Danny Kearns during the transfer window.

Following his October arrival at Bootham Crescent, Kearns made 12 on-loan appearances for the Minstermen before being recalled by Posh at the end of last month.

He has not featured, however, for the Championship club since and will again be allowed to seek a loan move away from the London Road outfit from tomorrow.

Rotherham, however, are expected to be in a position to pay a higher percentage of the Republic of Ireland under-23 international’s wages than City can afford despite the £50,000 sale of Jonathan Smith to Luton over the weekend.

On the fight for Kearns, Minstermen chief Gary Mills said: “He’s available again, although I’ve heard he might be going to Rotherham.

“The problem we have is with the money side of things, whether that’s a transfer fee or to do with his salary. It’s unfortunate that we can’t compete with the likes of Rotherham in that respect, because he did well for us and he would be an option out wide for me at the moment.

“We all know the qualities he has got and you never know what might happen. I know he’d like to come back here because we suit him down to the ground. It could come down to whether we can make Peterborough an acceptable offer but I don’t know whether we are in a position to do that.”

Kearns played the majority of his matches for the Minstermen in midfield but, if Mills can bring him back to the club, he would look to employ him in a wide attacking position with Ashley Chambers, Michael Coulson and Oli Johnson all currently crocked.

The City boss also felt he might be in the market for a new defender with Chris Doig set to be sidelined for at least a fortnight by an ankle problem.

But David McGurk’s display during Saturday’s 0-0 draw at Fleetwood, on his return to the side after almost a year’s absence, could make that position less of a priority now.

Mills added: “We will see if we can bring some quality in and, if the right player is there for me to go and get, then I will try to do that. There are two or three players I’d like to sign but whether we can do anything we will have to wait and see.

“I’d like another wide man because I don’t know when the other three will be coming back, although John McReady has started training again (after his dislocated shoulder) so shouldn’t be too long.”

The City boss also gave the first suggestion that on-loan Aldershot attacker Alex Rodman might not be the solution to his lack of options on the flanks.

A decision on whether to extend Rodman’s stay is due in the New Year but Mills said: “I’d have liked to have seen Alex do a little bit more in two or three situations (on Saturday).”

The City manager added that he felt the only difference between Saturday’s draw and the 3-0 Boxing Day defeat at Chesterfield was the standard of his teams defending and gave great credit to McGurk for that improvement, saying: “We were excellent for the 90 minutes (at Fleetwood).

“We had a good shape and were on our front foot throughout. Saying that, I thought we also played well against Chesterfield but our defending for their three goals was atrocious.

“We did not stick our chances away (at Fleetwood) but we got ourselves a clean sheet, which I am absolutely delighted about. I thought Dave McGurk did well along with Chris Smith and they were both complemented by the full-backs Dan Parslow and Jamal Fyfield.

“To say it was Dave’s first game for a year, the timing of his headers was excellent, as was his reading of the game. I’m pleased for him because it’s not easy to come back in but he did extremely well.

“That’s a massive bonus because you never know what you will get from players who have been out for that long so that’s all credit to him for the way he’s come back.”

Can't afford him, where has all the promotion and cup win money gone, so much for promising to invest the money into the squad, we need to be pushing for promotion (playoffs) and nit finishing at the wrong end of the table due to not having a team with strengh and depth. Please make funds available

Kearns would definitely be a good addition but striker and central defender must be the main priorities despite Dave McGurk coming back well. There is no competition for places as Striker or goalkeeper at present(Reedy not in the picture) but there must be competition to keep players hungry for success. There is no doubt we have missed Clarke Carlisle but an injury to McGurk now would be a disaster-he is the best centre back option we have and has been for years.I know money is a problem though and the bigger the gates the more GM is likely to get so get down to home games at Bootham Crescent and support your team.

The club needs to make a statement on this asap, as it's causing a lot of disquiet on the York forums, such as R&B. It seems Sophie's comment on top of the open top bus about investing in the team is going astray to the point it was not truthful.

That happy release about putting 50,000 in to cover the Gillingham postponement backfired as we know that's about cashflow, but it makes us seem like we're struggling.

Sure, the large amount of money made out of last season may not have arrived in a cheque the following week, but it's looking more and more like the McGills simply pocketed 100s of thousands to make up for their input over previous seasons.

Honesty on that would be fine, I'd support it, but only if it was not to the detriment where we can't even afford to loan a player we know we need, because of a few thousand in difference between a wage percentage with a club like Rotherham.

As said, others are less thoughtful on this and there's a lot, and I mean a lot, of disquiet right now.

So, please Jason or Sophie, clarify the situation and do it soon.

He's a decent player but not exceptional and certainly he didn't show enough to suggest he's worth pushing the boat out. He works hard to receive the ball but his decision making after that meant that he didn't use his possession particularly well. I wouldn't be against his return but not at any price.
Unlike Rodman who has rarely shown the commitment you'd expect from someone trying to get a contract.
Of the two Kearns would be a higher priority but I doubt that he would be a permanent signing and McCready offers much better long term value.
Rodman? - I'd let him go unless he takes one last chance tomorrow.

We have to work under salary cap conditions, of which we are almost at our limit.
Offloading Smith will free up a bit of allowance, as will releasing Carlisle earlier in the year, but there are more pressing needs out there than another small nippy winger.
Perhaps, and this is speculation only, the club are only prepared to pay a proportion of his wages, as if we pay more it would reduce our playing budget in more pressing areas of the pitch.

Not so much to do with pushing the boat out - its is to do with L2 wage cap rules as stated above. Wembley money not in this years calculations - simple as that.

The risk we would take would be relying on one or both of Doig and McGurk not breaking down again which would leave us with a young Allan playing alongside Smith who has had a very dodgy season up until this point. I would rather we signed a quality league level centre half on a two year contract and that should see us sorted for not just this season but also the next one.

I think Smith can play a brilliant game of football (and he did at the start of the season) but in the past couple of months he's made too many mistakes. Wouldn't be the worst thing for club or player if he was dropped for a while, and returned with more confidence, or sharpness, or whatever has been missing lately. That said, it sounds like he played well against Fleetwood so maybe he just needs a more solid partner to work off.

The risk we would take would be relying on one or both of Doig and McGurk not breaking down again which would leave us with a young Allan playing alongside Smith who has had a very dodgy season up until this point. I would rather we signed a quality league level centre half on a two year contract and that should see us sorted for not just this season but also the next one.
Smith has had such a dodgy season that he is jointly leading the Press Player of the Season standings.
Do you ever watch the team play ?
I go every week home and away. You?
Seriously ? And your opinion of Smith over the last couple of months ? Home games for me by the way.

I don't have a witch hunt against anyone, I would have Chambers as player of the season at this point. But to say Smith has been excellent this season is frankly rubbish in my opinion, I would actually agree with Luke that he started the season quite well but has made mistake after mistake in the last couple of months but may improve with another centre half alongside him. You are rather patronising at times with your comments that posters have no understanding of football if they dare to make a less than positive comment. I think after watching city players for the last 36 years i can see when someone is playing well or struggling.

You are right and everyone else is wrong is that it? It's hard not to be patronising to someone who tries to speak with authority and knowledge about a player who he sees play at most twice a month. Perhaps have a more balanced opinion and listen to what better informed contributors tell you? You seem to be a very poor listener, less beligerence would do you good.

Still not listening I see. Oh well. The phrase "I have a right to my opinion" was bound to be trotted out eventually, the final fallback of the blinkered ignoramus who doesn't like being challenged with the facts. Looks like it's not just Chris Smith who is having a "dodgy season"!

Bloody hell just how big is that arrogant chip on your shoulder. What facts are you challenging me with" Smith has had an excellent season" ? You lost all credibility before you even started.

Perhaps have a more balanced opinion and listen to what better informed contributors tell you? You seem to be a very poor listener, less beligerence would do you good.
I have an opinion which is my right, what make someone else a better informed contributor ? And speaking with authority and knowledge ? I'm commenting on watching a player play football for gods sake, get off your high horse because your'e now just coming across as unbelievably arrogant. Not for the first time I have to say.
Still not listening I see. Oh well. The phrase "I have a right to my opinion" was bound to be trotted out eventually, the final fallback of the blinkered ignoramus who doesn't like being challenged with the facts. Looks like it's not just Chris Smith who is having a "dodgy season"!
Bloody hell just how big is that arrogant chip on your shoulder. What facts are you challenging me with" Smith has had an excellent season" ? You lost all credibility before you even started. Seriously my friend take a long hard look at yourself because you have some real issues with anyone with different views to yourself and life's too short, chill out a bit more.
Says the guy who lives on a newspaper forum. I pointed out to you, but again you are too arrogant to bother to listen properly, that Chris Smith is leading the Press Player of the Season standings - this is a FACT. You think you know better - you don't. I think you need to spend less time posting nonsense on here and more time watching the team so that you can post with a bit more credibility rather than getting caught out and embarrassed as you have this evening. Good luck with that in the New Year!

The risk we would take would be relying on one or both of Doig and McGurk not breaking down again which would leave us with a young Allan playing alongside Smith who has had a very dodgy season up until this point. I would rather we signed a quality league level centre half on a two year contract and that should see us sorted for not just this season but also the next one.
Smith has had such a dodgy season that he is jointly leading the Press Player of the Season standings.

This season he has been excellent, as illustrated by the fact he is leading the Press standings, however he has made some errors just as he did last season.

See there is that massive chip coming out again, obviously the press rating are gospel to you because you certainly aren't watching games yourself. Anyway as I say chill out and have a happy new year, as I say life's to short.

No, I don't watch games. Wake me up when we've got relegated and gone bust so you can say "I told you so" and give me a glass of the champers you are saving for the occasion. Meanwhile I will continue to support my team. Sorry, follow. I shouldn't use words like "support" that clearly confuse you.

The risk we would take would be relying on one or both of Doig and McGurk not breaking down again which would leave us with a young Allan playing alongside Smith who has had a very dodgy season up until this point. I would rather we signed a quality league level centre half on a two year contract and that should see us sorted for not just this season but also the next one.
Smith has had such a dodgy season that he is jointly leading the Press Player of the Season standings.
Do you ever watch the team play ?
I go every week home and away. You?
Seriously ? And your opinion of Smith over the last couple of months ? Home games for me by the way.
This season he has been excellent, as illustrated by the fact he is leading the Press standings, however he has made some errors just as he did last season. But then so has everyone else because they are playing against better players and getting punished for their mistakes. I don't understand this witchhunt against top players like Smith and Chambers but fortunately I am sure they are professional to listen to the people around them who work with them day in day out and who actually know something about the game.
I don't have a witch hunt against anyone, I would have Chambers as player of the season at this point. But to say Smith has been excellent this season is frankly rubbish in my opinion, I would actually agree with Luke that he started the season quite well but has made mistake after mistake in the last couple of months but may improve with another centre half alongside him. You are rather patronising at times with your comments that posters have no understanding of football if they dare to make a less than positive comment. I think after watching city players for the last 36 years i can see when someone is playing well or struggling.
You are right and everyone else is wrong is that it? It's hard not to be patronising to someone who tries to speak with authority and knowledge about a player who he sees play at most twice a month. Perhaps have a more balanced opinion and listen to what better informed contributors tell you? You seem to be a very poor listener, less beligerence would do you good.
I have an opinion which is my right, what make someone else a better informed contributor ? And speaking with authority and knowledge ? I'm commenting on watching a player play football for gods sake, get off your high horse because your'e now just coming across as unbelievably arrogant. Not for the first time I have to say.
Still not listening I see. Oh well. The phrase "I have a right to my opinion" was bound to be trotted out eventually, the final fallback of the blinkered ignoramus who doesn't like being challenged with the facts. Looks like it's not just Chris Smith who is having a "dodgy season"!
Bloody hell just how big is that arrogant chip on your shoulder. What facts are you challenging me with" Smith has had an excellent season" ? You lost all credibility before you even started. Seriously my friend take a long hard look at yourself because you have some real issues with anyone with different views to yourself and life's too short, chill out a bit more.
It's some time since I contributed to this forum. Now I just read the **** that goes on, the last time I wrote it was to complain about one of the City bashers that only seemed to contribute when City had not fared well. At the time Duffy commented that I " REALLY DIDNT LIKE OTHER PEOPLES OPINIONS" . Couldn't understand the comment when I'd never said anything the like before. I continue to go see City as often as I can and listen to some of the brain deads that profess to know about football and how they'd make things better ????????? COME ON YOU CITY
On this point Duffy is quite right. City for the Premier is citing the YEP Player of the season standings as though it was some hugely authoritative poll of expert opinion; it's not, it's the marks given by the individual who writes the match report for each game - usually no more than three different people all season and in no sense experts.

So why are you here reading their work if you think they are "in no sense experts"? I would trust the wisdom of people who work with the club on a daily basis, and whose knowledge of the club gives them a living, ahead of some anonymous trolls on the internet.

Not quite as unedifying as the sight of rabid City supporters fighting each other at Chesterfield but it shows how easy it is to wind ourselves up.
Duffy has publicly modified his originally over optimistic view of Doig and, I think quite rightly, is concerned about young Allan being relied upon too early. However the intemperate use of hyper-critical "very dodgy this season" is bound to get up the noses of more considered posters. Similarily "this season he has been excellent" is not going to get a consensus. But in neither case should the view create personal abuse. As City supporters -I believe both protagonists fall into that category- we should be better than that. Like many others, Smith has had good and less good periods - at Chesterfield he blocked a certain first half goal but unfortunately had a 'mare for a period in the second half.
The players of the first half of the season are not the ones I would have picked in August but for me Parslow, Fyfield, and Chambers fall into that category. (Strange given our goals against column? - not really)
However, all the squad can improve in the second half and I expect most will.

(Strange given our goals against column? - not really) However, all the squad can improve in the second half and I expect most will. Edsoni

Duffy has publicly modified his originally over optimistic view of Doig and, I think quite rightly, is concerned about young Allan being relied upon too early. However the intemperate use of hyper-critical "very dodgy this season" is bound to get up the noses of more considered posters. Similarily "this season he has been excellent" is not going to get a consensus. But in neither case should the view create personal abuse. As City supporters -I believe both protagonists fall into that category- we should be better than that.

It is quite correct to state that I did rate Doig a very good player when he first joined us, I honestly think the number of injuries he has had have caught up with him though and he looks to have lost a yard of pace to me. I don't think we are a actually a million miles away with the squad we have and a fit McGurk certainly strengthens it. I would have let Fyfield go in the summer but have to say he has shown he was worth keeping. I would still like to see another centre half and forward at the club and go think it will happen over the next few days.

Settle down folks, No central defender needed now McGurk is back. Parslow can provide cover for any injury worries with Banjo to fill in at the back if required. Let get a big striker that Walker can feed off and Kearns back if the fatman does not get him. Rodman,Reed,send them on there way.

Sorry Budgie bt Reed= goals and the sooner millsy gives him more time in the team, they will be more plentiful. Other players perform much worse and stay in for weeks.
Walker works hard but hsnt got the shooting boots this season so put himwide and Reed in the middle and see what happens if 433 must be continued would rather reedand walker playing off each other in a 442 much like the Cole and Yorke European conquerors of Manchester United!
