Marcus Antonsson is making the most of his time on loan.

Marcus Antonsson, who is on loan at Blackburn Rovers from Leeds, has been on fire recently. He scored four goals in four games in November for Blackburn, including scoring 2 goals against Bury on 18 November.

Does this mean that he’s adjusted to England and will come back next summer, ready to challenge for a spot on the roster? Or does this mean that he’s finally found a level which he can play at? Who knows. Go vote for him anyway.

On to the links.
