He's only young isn't he? The amount of games he's played in time he's had with us, is probably more than he would've expected and again, there'll be opportunities nearby - It's not like he's out of favour..

From what Evatt says about the intensity and the quality that we train at, there's an argument to be had, that these young lads may be better off sticking with us and learning, rather than cutting their craft on Port Vale's bench, or in a hotel room in Norway
He's 20. He's played 20 or so first team games. For me - personally its not enough. And I think IE is a man who wants his youngsters playing games. Reserves are fine if you are either a teen or close to first team - and maybe George is. But at 20 if you play a season of reserve football that's a waste IMHO. Lets say we go up. GT plays the odd cup game and ressies. What then? He's not going to start in the championship and is back to square one.

Need to get young lads out for experience - even if they can't make it here its far better for their careers in many cases.

Suddenly it's 2-2. A goal and a Baptiste deflection throw our lead away. :shock:

Edit..Make that 3-2 Stanley....

I thought he was 18/19!! You're right then, but players play longer nowadays and a lot of players don't start kicking a 1st team ball until 22/23 so there's still time.

There's January to come, so a good loan is still possible - Especially if we're flying high in the division, a Lge 1 team may fancy a bit of him

Finished 3-3. A bit disappointing after leading 2-0.

Aye. Dapo is 24 and only has 60 odd games under his belt. And until this season perhaps the end of last probably hadn't really cracked it. But you could argue regular footy last season with us was maybe his last chance and he took it. And thankfully was sensible enough to come back...look at him now?

I think Thomasson is a decent player but probably one who needs to bulk up a little and just play a bit more footy.

I like Thomason. Never hides. Got Robles 6-3 on his debut, was played out of position and brought off but came back stronger. I’m sure he’ll get and take a chance this season. Would keep him around.
