Can we get him back in January? That would be one striker role filled.

no recall option on the loan.
The only real things in this reality are how perspective is perceived and eventual death...

& Unsworth kicking ass.

We can't recall him.

Thought Unsworth said on the radio we could?

Dowell’s slow and his best position is #10. Happy days.

How about Liam Walsh, anyone caught any Birmingham games?
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Hardly playing, unfortunately. One of the loans we got badly wrong.

Ditto for Connolly at Ipswich.

Both loans seemed a bit last minute and rushed anyway. Almost like it got so late in the window that we'd rather send them anywhere than have them spend another 6 months in the U-23's. We were probably rushed off our feet with other transfer dealings too to really do our due diligence on every deal at that time.

Shame about Liam Walsh.

All it takes is one bad loan move and it can set a player back in their development.

It might all be for nothing anyway, especially if we get Allardyce.

There are things I like about Allardyce — defending, set pieces, shot locations — but he is death for youth players. Given how much talent we have in the U23s, I would be very uncomfortable with the club appointing a manager that's more likely to push them out than bring them into the team.

Dyche might be okay for the U23s, as he has at least some record improving young players, although I don't see how someone like Dowell fits his approach. And Dowell is someone we really need to be working with. Creative, technical, great footballing brain, and raised at the club.

This is where our failure to hire Favre, and current inability to hire Tuchel (he'd be crazy to walk into this shit show), really fucks us. Both managers appreciate smart, technical players and aren’t afraid to give youth a chance.

You could also look at it another way. We have some young defenders who might benefit from working under Dyche or Allerdyce. Being involved in regime that works hard and looks to improve the defensive side of the game. Look at the youngsters we have at the back. Browning, Kenny, Galloway, Garbutt, Keane, Holgate and you can even throw Funes Mori into that as well. There is a ton of potential there that is probably being wasted. Tap into that and really work with them and we may actually have a set of defenders that can take us forward and save us a ton on cash which can be invested elsewhere. It's not all about the forwards. As the saying goes. Build from the back.

Decent point. Feels a bit like we need to go back to basics and then work it out from there. I'd rather it wasn't Allardyce but someone needs to instil a bit of shape into us again.

Cracking goal from Joe Williams, up for Barnsley's goal of the month. :P

I don't think Moshiri's football wisdom extends to that though. He wants a sexy manager playing sexy football to go along with his sexy new stadium. Nothing wrong with that dream like, as long as it's achievable.

The Connolly loan was stupid in the first place.
Yes, we're being condescending. Yes, that means we're talking down to you.
