That’s the problem sorted - a young lad from “up north” travelling 100 miles for games (unlikely training) who probably never played in a man’s game will sort out the front line

I suppose I have to add “let’s wait and see”

Given that the option of JG no longer being the manager is not going to happen.

Do you not think it is a good thing that the club are trying to get players in on loan? Im sure some have called for that, especially loan players from league clubs.

Im sure we previously had loan players who had to travel quite far to play for us.

Of course we need a striker too :)

Lets wait and see is all well and good, but we also make a judgement beforehand too!

Agreed Mark.

But.

The final judgement is our position in the League.

Thats very true.

VS Boro's much used refrain of 'Lets wait and see' is a good one, but I was just wanting to highlight that it is okay to form a view based on what we know, share it, and then see if we were right or wrong at a later date. Otherwise you can say 'lets wait and see' about pretty much anything and never state your actual view :)

Oh yes - get players on loan. If they are better than at club and not to make up numbers. Still; if Huddersfield is closest then so-be-it.

Yes - the likes of Gordon and lapado travelled distances.
To build a team (and football is a team game) then work in training is needed. I can’t see the lad travelling down for that.

Bit worried - he must be first young loan signing that “is highly thought of” / “wanted by many higher clubs” ;)

Seeing as JG likes a 433 can see a midfield 3 of Shanks, Mussa and Clements going forward then.

To be fair, it seems they watched him play, liked him, contacted his parent game to see if he was available and got him in.

Don’t mind that at all

Redditch have just signed a new player. How many times do you think that their manager has watched them play?

Which is better than none at all.

Don’t get me wrong, im not happy with a fair bit of how we are doing at the moment, but I won’t pick faults in this signing for the sake of it.

If they liked what they saw and he’s available, fair enough.

Doubt Stepien was watched loads, and that turned out okay

You believe that?
They watched one game and singled him out and spotted something no other club saw.
This not knocking the signing, but acknowledging the management and level of football.

More like “have you any players we can take on loan”

Not knocking the kid but this is typical of recent signings. Not seen them play or they havent been playing regularly. He came on as sub in the second half. Only played 18 minutes. So it wasnt even one game. But the kid did score. And it is a signing of some one below 30 which is a plus

Either way, at least they have watched him, it’s someone different and not a same old, same ‘contact’ sort of player like Messiah McDonald etc

JG had watched McDonald play on several occasions.

I am not knocking the loan signing per-se its more the idea that a 18 year old kid will be ready for the SLP (and the distance to travel) and the bull-shit. I would be amazed if he starts on Saturday. Happy to be proven wrong on most counts.

Very few (if any) signings at this level are players that have been scouted. They contact the club, mates of players, without a club or have crossed path with manager in the past.

clubs now insist that loan players play games. Coming on loan to a club like Boro is part of their football education. They learn nothing sitting on the bench and the league club will cancel the loan.

JG is employed to win games for NBFC and not to help other clubs players develop.

If JG thinks he is better than other options then so-be-it.
IF JG thinks he is not, and the parent club cancel the loan, then so-be-it

Let's hope he does not replace Baker (junior).
