Ben Whiteman

Just seen that Ben Whiteman as gone back to Sheff Utd from Donny. Lets hope that he is one of Steve,s targets as he is after someone in midfield like Joel Byrom.

Ben Whiteman is not like Joel Byrom. Besides that, he is staying at Sheff Utd to cover the first team.

I went to watch Donny Rovers play Rochdale just before New Years Eve and Ben Whiteman scored a cracking goal for Donny after 4 minutes. It was a very strange game. Donny started the stronger and went 1-0 up. Andrew Cannon then missed an open goal for Rochdale before Alfie May put Donny 2-0 up with the aid of a deflection. I then gave Calvin Andrew a good clap as he came on as a sub for Rochdale in the 1st half after 31 minutes. Rochdale were the better side in the 2nd half and missed numerous chances with Calvin Andrew missing a couple. Matty Blair came on as a sub for Donny after around 60 minutes.

If I were Steve Evans I would be doing my best to sign Ben Whiteman. A promotion campaign would do him good.

Zero chance of him coming back here. He has done very well at Doncaster so the last thing he will be doing is dropping down to L2 no matter how much he enjoyed it here unfortunately

If we did nothing else but add Ben Whiteman to the squad for the rest of the season, it'd guarantee us going up. In the same way that Murray got us over the line in 2002.

Whiteman is class, Too good for L2, probably proving to be better than L1 aswell. It would be great if Evans could find another Whiteman this Jan

Not like this place to have rose tinted glasses! Taking away last game of the season, half dozen or so games before that he was poor / ok at best.

Good player. But in order to develop he needs to steer well clear from the shocking league we currently play in.

We need to be realistic here. Ben Whiteman has been recalled to the Sheffield Utd. squad to cover for their first team.
Even if they wanted to loan him out again this season, why would they want to put his development backwards by him playing in a lower league than league 1?
He won't be coming back here this season ....... and any talk of us buying Jorge Grant in this transfer window is equally ridiculous.

Wow. I'm amazed that Blades have sold him and he's gone to League 1.

That's a right signing for Donny. Must have cost a packet too.
