I hate to think what the paddock will be shouting after one mistake.

Is that the exciting Premier midfielder we were waiting for? I was sure it would be Regan Slater

I know what it says in the article about why it’s a 2 week trial. But the cynical side of me suspects it’s a case of Pressley did loads of work identifying players he wanted and knew loads about, Holdsworth failed/messed up getting all of them loans and permanent (more than just the ones we all know about) and now we’re left with kids that aren’t really ready to go out on loan that we don’t know much about so we’re having to trial them for 2 weeks first.

It's disappointing if this is the level of loanee we are going to get, kids just out off their nappies sort of speak. We really could do with a seasoned striker up front as a matter of urgency. To wait all this time for this level of player doesn't bode well. So close to the start of the season and still no sign of the strikers and wide players we need is worrying.

I’m sure we will get a couple of loans that are a bit older and stronger as well, like we did last season with Sowerby. We’ll be getting 4 more loans.

I don’t believe that pressley is naive enough to think we can do anything with half of our team as teenagers.

That's good then because in plain English that means we'll win something. Fkn Americanisation.

I cannot agree more pacirv and we all know what it leads too - a relegation battle.

The whole 6 month/season long loan thing is stupid.
Loans by their nature should be a short term thing either as cover or with a view to a permanent move.
It's turning the lower leagues into a bit of a shambles.

182 Blue totally agree personally I feel less inclined to go watch a team that's 50% loanees that we have no chance of signing permanently or can benefit by selling on. It's not good business in the long run.

Why do you think just about all lower league clubs do it then?

With so many loan players at League 1 and 2 clubs, they are becoming pseudo feeder / reserve sides.

It will be interesting to see Brunt on the park at Brunton Park.

I trust he will not have to bear the brunt of the criticism if things go badly.

Problem is that the loanees are generally the exciting young players that you are happy to pay to watch. We've had our share with Tom Lawrence, Yates and Nadesan etc. I still remember seeing Jack Grealish playing against us. League 2 football would be grim to watch without these youngsters who clubs can't afford to buy. Having top quality loanees is also good for inspiring our own youngsters. OK we can't ever get a sell-on from loanees but with the right ones it is still good business for L2 clubs.

It's all about finding the right one's with a point to prove and not the ones who take the hump at being loaned out below their level.
It relies on the parent club being honest about their appraisal of the lad and him having a good attitude (seeing it as an opportunity not a slight)

I guess it's also about us measuring up to expectations too, if training is crap compared to the parent club or the dressing room isn't enjoyable it's not long before the pangs of regret set in I bet...makes me think as a relatively recent player you'd think Pressley would have that covered better than most.

We're not in the position we can afford a full squad of good players and if loaning is the best way we can get that bit of class in then so be it, alright you don't have an asset to sell on but since when did we have the finances to knock back some of the mickey-take figures we've sold our best and brightest for in the past?
It's a loanee for a full year or a Charlie Wyke for half a season these days.

It's better to be silent and assumed a fool than to speak and remove all doubt
