Youngsters On Loan Watch

If he had a full season at Doncaster he may have been part of the squad first part of the season but with him missing a lot of the season, another loan is probably on the cards. Done well when played at Doncaster, plenty of Championship clubs should be interested.
Could see him doing a good job at a lower Championship team. He's such a versatile striker that he can play in a variety of different systems in a variety of roles.

Need someone who can run the channels? TJJ's your man. Someone to hold up play and bring others in? TJJ's your man. Someone to drop deep and create space for the forwards ahead? Someone to play off the shoulder of the last man?

TJJ could potentially become a complete striker if he develops fully and stays fit. It's gonna be tough for him here because the competition upfront currently is the strongest it's been in a very long time. I think for him, if he begins to score more goals, he'll be impossible to ignore.

Season over for our loanees in England. John Jules got a goal in the last game. A shame that he was out for three months, five goal and three assists in 13 starts is quite good. Will probably go out on loan again, should certainly attract interest from the Championship.

Ballard was on the bench today, probably rested for the play-offs. Has by all accounts been very good for Blackpool, played most of their games, quite few for Northern Ireland too and will now experience a play-off. Will be very interesting to follow.

McGuiness has been good for Ipswich as well, his stats are very impressive, looks to be an absolute monster in the air.

Harry Clarke has done okey for Oldham in League 2 but hard to see him breaking through with Salibs, Mavropanos, Ballard and McGuiness all ahead of him.

Osei Tutu started off well for Cardiff but lost most of the season because of injury. Would probably have been sold regardless with us having some younger and highly promising RBs, a shame still as his value could have been decent with a full season in the Championship behind him.

Matthew Smith had a strange season. Started off very well for Swindon and got lots of praise but lost his place. Then went on loan to Charlton but hardly played.

From what I can gather, James Olakyinka has done okay at southend despite his issues with injuries. Its been difficult for him because Southend are a mess. He is their joint top scorer with 3 goals in the league which shows badly they have struggled as a team. He is obviously highly rated by the club as he made the bench for the community shield but he could definitely do with a better loan next season.

For the Matt Smith case, we should have loan him out to Spain/Italy/Germany.

There is no point loaning a technical player to a kick and rush team (English lower league sides), and say they have played badly.
In these hoof ball English teams, their manager will only say “you are not physical enough, that’s why I won’t play you.” Just like what Pulis did to Gnabry.

If a young Messi is in our team and you loan him to Pulis. He will get the same treatment. And because he doesn’t get played, a lot of stupid fans will not rate him.

Please, just loan Smith and other technical players to somewhere that they can showcase his passing ability.

Despite his age, I have really high hopes for Ballard. Done well at international level against the likes of Haaland and the Blackpool fans love him. His mentality is probably his biggest asset. He has done amazingly well to pick himself up after being released and his injury issues at Swindon.

Hoping he gets some game time in preseason before we loan him out again. Fully deserves it.
