Everton have recalled Under-21 striker Hallam Hope from his loan spell with Sheffield Wednesday after two months. It was due to run through 1 January 2015.
The promising 20-year-old was sent out on loan to get match experience but made only three appearances from the subs' bench and started only one game — a 3-0 home defeat against Watford, when he was brought off at half-time. He failed to score in any of these games.

I hear in his book Leon has also accepted responsibility for Mr Blobby, the cheeky girls and the crazy frog song. : )
Returning to the thread, I've heard good things about this boy, but agree with the decision to recall him. It's either game time or he's better off training with Eto'o and Big Dunc.

He appeared to do quite well at Bury, perhaps we should let him go back there and work his way up through the league system and make a decent career for himself.

Hard to judge him on so little but he's struggled to get game time in a side that is struggling to score or create. It looked as though the jump to Championship football was too much to be honest.
Good luck to him though, maybe he'll get the chance to prove us wrong...

Don't write him off cos it has happened for him yet. School him and see how he develops first; if he doesn't cut the mustard (why would anyone cut mustard, by the way?) then release him.

All the best for the future, Hallam... but, unfortunately, I don't think it's here.

That's about all I remember from my 2 weeks work experience at Colman's in Norwich!

Ossie doesn't cut it anymore!
