Seen on one of Skys websites that we have supposedly made a move for Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden. Can't see it to be honest. My post is about the loan system in general. I dislike it to the hilt for various reasons. Take wee Paddy last season played great fans loved him but I couldn't get over excited because realistically he will end up elsewhere. Same would apply to Foden. Unless there is a written agreement and a realistic fee set in don't think we should entertain these deals. Brendan is doing a superb job bringing young bhoys through like young Ralston . Calvin Miller Michael johnstone etc. I appreciate guys like Ajer might benefit from playing more regular football but would he not be better here learning from experienced professionals and at a club with fantastic training facilities? If he's deemed good enough to step in against the likes of Motherwell then he could handle anything in a league that we will win by some margin. Saying that if Barcelona want to lend us Messi for a few months then I think the loan systems brilliant 😀 Hail Hail bhoys ☘.

I agree with you Pat unless we have an agreement with a offer for us to bring the player in permanently I don't think we should touch them.

There will be some very good players at English clubs looking to get a loan move in January to try and cement there world cup places , guys like giroud, mitrovic, Wiltshire and plenty more like them.

Would rather we had taken a chance on liam lindsay from patrick last season . id also take a chance on mark o hara. big lump of a boy and anytime I've seen him he's impressed. the rumour of signing his team mate at Dundee (boys name has escaped me) is still doing the rounds.

Unfortunately it is a very widespread problem/ situation because huge clubs compete all over the globe for the very best potential talent available and want to snap them up before a rival gets in.
It causes a huge surplus of young starlets vying for the slightest opportunity and when it doesn't seem likely at the parent club, then farming them out is the next best option. I remember Celtic doing the same thing in the 60's with Jinky to get him toughened-up and used to competitive games - and it obviously worked; so it's a 2 way street.
We still do it ourselves with young lads and although it may have the drawbacks mentioned above it obviously serves a purpose.

DRB the boy Lindsay you might just get away with but you're credibility went right out the window with O'Hara. Exactly which one of our squad players place would he take. Dear oh dear 🙈.
