As per the thread earlier in the week the boro lad is a they will pay his wages till the end of the season job if we give him an 18 month or more contract now same as when we signed Wyke from them.

And the other player on loan is Rhys Healey

Plymouth have their minds on other things this week and KC is trying to do a deal before they renew their interest once theyre out of the cup.

Any decent prospects at Boro we're likely to be in for?

Not a bad thing to have particularly close links with a club like Boro - they've got a very good youth setup there and there's bound to be a few decent players who aren't quite good enough to make it. With York and Hartlepool both struggling, we're in an ideal place to pick them off.

The Plymouth fans are up in arms because Derek Adams has been told none of the Liverpool income is going on new players, imagine the reaction if our owners were that tight.

They're also very unimpressed with their two new signings. Kavanagh tried to sign Sokolik for us, which gives you a good indication of how good he is.

Hardly any marquee names being mentioned yet just untried youngsters who we are gambling on getting us promotion, if they are the targets we are after that is, we need to believe we can get promotion and these kids 'might' come good but get rid of a few fringe players and Jenkins can get his hand in his pocket and bring in some quality players and give it a real go.

To be honest i'm surprised we're after anyone at all after 2 months of people claiming there is no money. 3 of the Doncaster 11 tonight are young lads on loan, Bet they couldn't give a shit.

Totally agree when loan players work, maybe the reason it scares me is because under Abbott one year, didn't we use over fifty players?

They were like extras from a war movie getting five minute cameos - some never featured but are available to see in the 'directors cut'.

Some of Abbott's he won't have seen play, Most of the loans abbott will have got will have been freebies, hence why they never got game time. I think its Kavanagh who you are referring to above mind, He was no different.

I have more faith in KC & Dykes that they know who and what they are getting in a player.

I'm happy to give the lad a chance but all I've seen of him so far was Crewe away and he looked a bit lightweight and lost that day - he was a bit "head down and run with it", not much awareness of what was around him.

EDIT - Also, if all those clubs were in for him, why didn't at least one of them sign him? Wouldn't exactly have been on a big wage. Looks more like agent talk.

Agree, when Kav was going out and getting loans by the dozen we were struggling against relegation and getting turned over every week, so we had to rely on clubs to give us players, inevitably meaning the quality was low.

Whereas this season we can offer clubs the chance for their players to be part of a winning, promotion chasing team.

Done properly a couple of loan signings can greatly add to our squad.

To be fair he was injured for pretty much the whole of 2016 with a muscle tear in his Ankle. That would of ruled out so many trials and put the breaks on what was an accelerating time of his career. With no reserve fixtures for our fringe players to keep sharp, you can't expect too much from our lads on the bench at the moment. With a high turnover of players at Chelsea, you don't keep your place for 10 years particularly at u23 level unless you're class, look at the names he played with.
I'm very excited by him, might take a few weeks to get him going but he's a player that is destined for the premier league.

Plenty of Prem clubs stock players in their U23s for a long time in fairness and many of them get nowhere near the first team there before disappearing down the league ladder.

Haha no I've just got a friend who's ultra passionate about Chelsea and their entire youth system. Naturally when he was linked to us I started looking into him.

I do agree with what you said though, I guess we'll wait and see. Its always a bit of a lottery when you take a loanee from a big academy without any senior experience.

Haha no I've just got a friend who's ultra passionate about Chelsea and their entire youth system. Naturally when he was linked to us I started looking into him.

I do agree with what you said though, I guess we'll wait and see. Its always a bit of a lottery when you take a loanee from a big academy without any senior experience.


Wouldnt bother me if we chucked him in and moved Gillesphey back in the middle today. Hes got to play some time or why sign him?

Being reported that Hartlepool are interested in Liddle and there has been a bid from a League Two side, but not Luton as some had been saying.

I'm happy to give the lad a chance but all I've seen of him so far was Crewe away and he looked a bit lightweight and lost that day - he was a bit "head down and run with it", not much awareness of what was around him.

EDIT - Also, if all those clubs were in for him, why didn't at least one of them sign him? Wouldn't exactly have been on a big wage. Looks more like agent talk.


To be fair he was injured for pretty much the whole of 2016 with a muscle tear in his Ankle. That would of ruled out so many trials and put the breaks on what was an accelerating time of his career. With no reserve fixtures for our fringe players to keep sharp, you can't expect too much from our lads on the bench at the moment. With a high turnover of players at Chelsea, you don't keep your place for 10 years particularly at u23 level unless you're class, look at the names he played with.
I'm very excited by him, might take a few weeks to get him going but he's a player that is destined for the premier league.


Blimey, are you his agent? :lol:

Plenty of Prem clubs stock players in their U23s for a long time in fairness and many of them get nowhere near the first team there before disappearing down the league ladder.

Agreed not sure when his deal is up?..Young players aren't afraid to try things.. in a wide position, surely we want McQueen or Wright to add that flair, trickery and pace on the wings. Maybe Gillesphey is just a much safer defensive option for us in KC's opinion.

Yeah probably. I think we may be better using Gillespheys safeness in the middle. I suppose we could even play 3-5-2. We'll prob have the same back four though.

KC saying after the game we need to get bodies out to get bodies in and they will be players going straight into starting 11. Can't weigh up why he is giving Wright and asamoah contract extensions in that case? I can't see a scenario where either of them two are going to start? Whereas with our leaky defence for me, Atkinson has a strong case for starting, yet we ship him out to Blyth who will surely be paying a minimal contribution to his wages.

The fact that nobody higher than Blyth came in for DA tells enough of a story. He simply isn't ready for football at this level right now, be it due to family circumstances, injuries, or some other reason.

Was it not more that he couldn't go to a league club because at the time it was outside the transfer window when he first went to Blythe...likewise the others Penn and Brough .. So he's gone back coz he likes it there and getting games

I think he meant a conference club perhaps. If one came in and offered to pay his full wage do you think hed have gone back to Blyth coz he likes it there?

We have the three of them on monthly deals as we need bodies as they can be cancelled at their next renewal if hes brought new players in to stay within the protocol whereas the players we have out on loan have longer contracts and cant just be cancelled at a few days notice.

But perhaps rather than pissing about moving players in and out they should be doing what everyone else is doing and looking to artificially inflate turnover figures dont forget by every 100k you do that you can add 55k to your wage bill.

Heres an idea they might like to consider The club staff have just moved out of the old offices in the Main stand leaving them vacant so why dont Pioneer agree to rent them for say 200k which would increase turnover by that amount and therefore give uncle Keith 110k extra to spend on the wage bill. Just an idea like.

If you'd listened to Curle's postmatch interview, he said that they had reassessed the numbers they've submitted to the FA to give them more room in the budget, but that they will still need to move bodies out because the ones they want to bring in will be first 11 quality.

What if Pioneer have no need for our old offices ? Why would they want to rent them ?

I think he was referring to a way around extra funding, even if they didn't want to rent them a decent accountant could just direct the cash back to Pioneer in other ways but it would appear to the league that we had more coming in therefore being able to give Keith money to spend.
