No point in bringing Dowell back. What hes doing is the idea of the loan in the first place so why stop it?

Ive seen faster lollipop men over 10 yards.

Its more that he does a lot of running.

Dowell can drift through games which doesnt go down well with sections of the fan base...

Big decisions for Sam. Does he bring Dowell and maybe Connolly back or even Browning into a 25 player squad, and if so who does he dump? The other left back fella who they forgot to register as well, and does not even appear on the club website, his name escapes me, (ex-loanee at Fulham).
Connolly and Dowell wouldnt need registering due to their ages at the start of the season.  We've only got Gethin Jones and Sam Byrne registered who we could realistically completely count out of first team contention.  Possibly Funes Mori depending on when he's expected back.

Any other additions would need someone shipping out, be it Barkley, Besic, McCarthy, etc.

Just spent the morning with a Notts Forest season ticket holder and had a good chat about Dowell. He say he's improving all the time, decision-making is getting better and work-rate too, you can see the progression month by month. Fitness-wise looks a struggle to play a decent 90 minutes and he's still too lightweight and gets caught on the ball too often but you can see he has talent.
In his opinion he's nowhere near ready to play Premier League football and probably won't be at the end of this season. Another year on loan would do him the world of good whether it's at Forest or otherwise until he develops into a mans frame as he is still quite boyish in his physicality.

Bearing in mind we do still have a glut of players in that position even after we offload a few there's no need to integrate him into the first team squad until he's ready for it. Wouldn't be the first to have a couple of loan moves before establishing himself.

Perfect replacement for Rooney then?

True, Osman didn't start regularly until he was 24

This is the kind of development that Barkley and Davies could have done with.
Hopefully send him to a promoted PL team next season with a clause that he has to play in so many games.

I know, but if I remember he didn't really get too much game time, was it Neil Warnock who just stopped playing him?

Edit - I've just looked, he got 13 games for Wednesday and 4 games for Leeds.

Dowell has already had more than that combined, and scored more goals, so it's nothing like the same really, especially if we're talking about Dowell spending another full season on loan.

Didn't like him because he couldn't defend. Not exactly the panicle of managers, but there's been a fair few that haven't got onto the Barkley hype.

That Barkley loan to Leeds was simply a terrible idea.
