I thought we were getting a striker on loan from a championship club. I wasn’t expecting someone on loan from a club at our level.

Let’s hope he finds some form quickly.

The thing I don’t really like about this is the January recall clause. Basically if he starts banging them in he’s back at Scunthorpe in January. The only way he stays for the season is if he’s bang average.

29 goals in 44 appearances on loan, mostly at Yeovil...

Is that right? Surely not?

If so then no one can knock.that sort of record, at least until half time against Crawley.

See how he goes with us, might be a real find, but I was hoping for something more exciting on paper than 10 goals in 38 starts and 17 sub appearances for Yeovil and Scunthorpe.

Seemingly not right. Further down his wiki page it gives it as 10 goals in 44 career appearances.

The loan deal is subject to a recall clause during the January transfer window, and to the clearance of all relevant paperwork.

Hmm...

If he’s decent he’ll be recalled in jan. Simple as that.

If it was from a championship or even a league 1 club, him doing well wouldn’t necessarily mean he’d be recalled as he’s not proving himself at his parent clubs level.

Really hope he hits the ground running and does well for us.

Few major concerns here for me though..
1. Deemed not good enough for a fellow L2 club, red flag straight away.
2. 3 months of pre-season and this is the only striker we’ll have in before the start of the season? Bit of a joke really..
3. If he is a success and gets 7/8 goals before Jan, he’ll be straight back to Scunny on the 1st Jan.

What happened to the Championship and Premier League loans we were promised? This goes against everything we’ve heard from SP & DH all preseason.

Obviously there’s 2 more strikers to come in before deadline day, let’s hope that they do the business.

Looks like he might be a good signing the only worry is the possible Jan recall if he turns out to be any good, unless we have a chance to make it a permanent signing come Jan.

Seen him play for Scunthorpe against Middlesbrough U23s at the back end of last season. Very big lad for his size and held the ball up well on that day, I was fairly impressed with him. Good signing IMO and defiantly better than what we currently have and what we had in that position for the second half of last season, just a shame about the recall clause but hey ho.

Quite. I’m not fussed which level they come from as long as they do the job. Having L2 experience is a plus in this lads case. That recall clause is going to loom over us and any potential good performances of his.

It's not the profile of player we were led to believe we were going in for.
Who knows what has gone on but it is fairly easy to see that the grand plan has gone out the window.
Sounds like we might be signing that Hardy lad, but that isn't particularly inspiring.
If the fans are underwhelmed by signing reserves from Scunthorpe and Brentford etc, then that is surely a forgivable stance.
We all be there cheering on these lads and would love to see them do well.

On the face of it, my main concern is not that he's come from another L2 side, it's the recall option in January.

He's played 38 games in L2 with 10 goals and 6 assists over 2 spells at Yeovil. That's nearly a goal contribution in every other game, 0.42 per game to be precise.

Bearing in mind that was in a struggling side that is pretty good going. If this was a 22 year old premier league loan signing I'd be happy with those figures.

Ashley Nadesan played 40 games in L2 with 11 goals and 8 assists, which is 0.475 per game for comparison.

However, this is all out the window thanks to that infuriating January recall clause. Why on earth have we agreed to that?!

His 2nd spell at Yeovil didn't work, for whatever reason. Seemed to be in and out of the team and Darren Way there manager changing strikers every week, so he got recalled Jan 19. His 1st spell he was fantastic, and not seen a bad thing about him back in 17/18, Yeovil fans raving about him back then. Seemingly scored shitloads for Scunny U23/reserves 2nd half of last season, but Hurst never bothered playing him. His touch looks good.

Exactly, the cynic in me thinks we've rushed this one as the forwards from the premier league / championship clubs won't arrive before the start of the season.

Not a huge issue providing they come in over the next few weeks, can see Olomola being more of a squad player overall.

What does it matter he’s a Scunthorpe reject or cast off by a team in the same division? Football is littered with stories of players failing at clubs but going onto be a success somewhere else, or players not fitting in or settling at clubs. Doesn’t mean you should write someone off.

I wonder if Yeovil fans were complaining about Carlisle reject Paddy Madden after he started banging in goals for them or Bradford fans complaining about another cast off when they made a fortune out of Nakhi Wells. Give the lad a chance.

The problem is if we don't mind signing players from Scunthorpe etc and doesn't matter where they come from etc then fair enough, but you can't then logically turn the anger on the board if we don't get the results with said players.

Being from Scunthorpe isn't the problem, it's the fact it's a loan signing with an option to recall in 5 months time. I'd love him to bang in 10 goals in that time but then he'll just go back there and we're having to recruit again.

You want him to score loads of goals you clown. Bang in loads of goals, hopefully into the reckoning for the playoffs and then you bring in better players. A la Callum O Hare - the best player that has been seen at Brunton Park in many a year and likely many a year to come.

If he doesn’t bang in loads of goals, it is worrying.
