Welcome aboard young man...

Hopefully, has the same impact as Morton/Etete did, rather than what BAS/Kabamba have offered up so far...

Always sceptical of U23 stats as they're no comparison to proper mens L2 football

Still hope someone comes in for Kabamba, BAS or even Rose during this window as we really do need some better quality up top

Not forgetting Ryan Edmonson who came in from Leeds after hitting 20 goals in their U23 Premier League Development Title winning season......

"We are delighted to welcome defender on a loan deal until the end of the season from NorwichCityFC"

 Shocked

"Understand Theo Corbeanu's time at Sheffield Wednesday is set to come to an end, with League One promotion rivals MK Dons lined up to take the Wolves youngster on loan for the rest of the season."

Data driven approach of course combined with a committee and our network of scouts.
Surely you can see the merit in owning your own players, I have no problem with loans but when they get taken back it tends to fûck things up a bit.

I absolutely can see the merit of owning our own players and would love to have a proven goal scorer on the books. The weird thing is then we would most likely be talking about how much money we will get for them in January when a championship or Prem team want them  Grin And how the club has no ambition by selling our best player  Cool

The point I was making through is we are exactly like other clubs in this window and 2 out of the 4 clubs you said don't get loans in, have got loans in (and some said about one of the other clubs).
I get why people don't like the chairman but some of the examples are just ridiculous and people are blinkered by their hatred of him (or other word meaning non favourable).

I actually didn’t say they don’t have loans I said they buy young talent and bring them on and sell, I think it’s called a medium term strategy.
I shudder to think how much Chesterfield will make on the boy they got from Borehamwood.

We do have 3 of our own strikers, 2 of which we payed transfer fees for. While  there are merits in owning your own players there are also negatives when they’re no good and you’re stuck with them under contract which also fücks things up a bit.

That is factually incorrect, BAS isn’t a striker or even a footballer.

According to this site only a dozen players have been sold from league two for over £1m. Even allowing for inaccuracies it can’t be many more.
Finding a diamond in the rough and then commanding a decent price is rarer than rocking horse doo doo. Imagine the thousands of players who have pulled on a league 2 shirt.

IMO you’re better off getting a freebie on decent wages rather than trying to speculate to accumulate.
Clubs like P*sh operate at a whole different level.

I wonder if we were signing him anyway irrespective of Etete leaving? We need another striker in to bolster the options.

Here’s an example for you.

Huh?  What are we worried about? As far as I can see (Wiki) the lad has never played for the International side at  any level! It’s a bit like us worrying about Super Sams availability for NTFC during Englands World Cup adventure in Qatar next year!!

Super Sam would be ideal for bringing on to take penalties - certainly better than three in the England squad at the Euros.
