Can't see him every being first team material. Hopefully, he'll have a good season and some L1/L2 clubs might come for him

We need to get more deals like this done. 

I'm sure the lack of first team games or season long loans has been one of our achillies heels as far as developing our own talents from junior levels. 

 

Thornilly came on leaps and bounds out on loan at Accrington, same with clare before his ego took over. 

Yet the likes of stobbs & wildsmith have gone backwards due to a lack of real competitive games.

Great move! The club seems to be getting its act together. Getting game time at a senior level can only be good for our youngsters and eventually the club.

I’m not sure Stobbs has ever looked promising. He has always seemed painfully average, and has lacked those flashes of brilliance that young players should have (ie. Thorniley, Penney, Dawson, Clare)

I don't get to see the junior games as I'm at work normally, was just remembering stobbs & O'Grady being the ones that were really highly rated when mandrich was in charge, before DC took over. 

Both seem to have just disappeared off the radar now. Though didn't stobbs miss nearly a year with a knee injury??

I think Stobbs was one of our best talents und MM, but following the restructure of the youth system when Chansiri came in, our youth players graduating from the academy have been getting better and better. Suddenly, now Stobbs and O’Grady seem way off the level of our other academy players.

Great move, experience is exactly what our youth players require to make the grade.

Completely off topic, but can you change your username?

 

Every time you post, I think we've appointed Tony Pulis and my heart misses a beat!

Both Stobbs and O’Grady should have been released years ago imo. Neither will have any chance of making our team (unless we slip into non-league) and now they are just sat there collecting dust like old books on a shelf.

Right, of course I’ll change it to Steve McLaren. That should be a lot better for your heart

If he plays regulary for hem I expect him to improve significantly. He plays game at a tempo and has lots of energy and they are key in todays football. If he can bolt on know how to this will do well.

Didn't Mansfield  loan penney for a season and never played the lad?? 

 

We need to get as many of the promising lads out on loan, but we also need to make sure they go somewhere where therlyre going to get lots of game time.
