Wednesday lose that Magic feeling

Despite the air of inevitability, I am very sad to see Madjid Bougherra leave Sheffield Wednesday to sign for Charlton. Despite playing only 29 times for Wednesday, he really did look the business. When so much credence is given to Rio Ferdinand's alleged ability to bring the ball out of defence, I think people will be surprised to see Magic actually do this. For the records Magic cost Charlton £2.5 million and Rio Ferdinand has demanded transfer fees currently totalling £48 million. Yes, Magic is prone to give the ball away after skipping around about 3/4 opposition players, but he'll improve and I hope he does enough to keep Charlton up.
He'll be sorely missed as will Drew Talbot, who signed for Luton and made his debut in the televised match at Blackburn. Luton were hopelessly outclassed, but I thought Talbot looked very capable and a snip at £250,000.
Magic's place in the Wednesday squad looks set to be filled by Mark Beevers, who apparently has oodles of potential. The 17 year old may even make his debut at Southampton on Wednesday. And the last time Wednesday played Southampton? Well look here - and Hepatits Boy, you cannot hate this man!
