    Youngsters departing. Good or Bad?

    i am very surprised these kids with poptential are going on loan....i think especially dos santos has got the skill to unlock defences....he has not been given a fair crack of the whip....i saw the video of him at Real Madrid....he was good.
    still maybe this will blood him.....but is a more physical league....could blunt his skill.....harry is beginning to get me uneasy..

    • Morning fellas, I actually do think it's a good idea. Apart from Taraabt none of them are even warming the bench. Get them out into some regular first team action, see how they fare and get them back next season with plenty of experience in a very physical league.

      • I'm in agreement with Big G. Realioty is that these guys really weren't getting time on the field, and if you look at the players that were ahead of them in the pecking order - all players with a lot more experience - the chances of them getting games in the home stretch as we are trying to improve our league position (with - I still believe - an outside chance fo making Europe next year), are remote at best. So now Harry gets to look at the squad players and see if they have the gumption to gut it out and win the games we need to win, and he gets to see the up and comers and see how they can perform with some regular starts. Seems to be a win-win to me. At the end of the season, he will have a better read on who is prepared to step up in our first team squad, and which of the guys on loan can play, so he knows what he has to work with during the off season.
        I'm still O.K. with Harry - and the proof of the pudding is going to be next season - how do we start, what kind of shape(s) is he going to play, what does the squad look like, who does he need to bring in, who does he get rid of, and perhaps more important than anything else - what is the attitude and mindset.
        Right now - I'm just hoping for a win (or a draw at worst) tomorrow!
