|Do we even need a single one of these loanees?|
at 22:17 16 Feb 2021
Now the injury issues are abating, I don't see the need for a single one of them tbh - certainly not on today's performance.
A team of our own, (currently) fit players:
Donacien (I know, I know)
Downes (Bishop as he's suspended)
Sears (LW) (I was tempted to say Judge here but LW isn't his position)
The only one of the six (six!) of them I'd be tempted to keep would be Bennetts to bring some width into this lot, but other than that, we're just creating a comfortable platform for young players to learn their trade, before going back to playing proper football.

Congratulations to Aaron are in order today; it’s been a long road for him but he’s now a goal scorer in English football and that’ll do him the world of good. When he looks confident there’s a definitely a player in there, hope this sets him up.
|Doubt we'll see Drinan, Huws or Dobra even on the bench tomorrow|

With the injury problems clearing up, I would imagine those three will be banished to the U23s for the foreseeable future.
Feel for Dobra, but the other two really didn't do themselves any favours against Swindon, isolated in their areas of the pitch or not.
|We should recall El Mizouni in January|

He’s played a decent number of games there and is back to fitness from his injury at the end of last season. With the injury crisis we’re having it makes zero sense having him out there (he was an unused sub today as Hoolahan’s playing in his favoured position), we can then let Gibbs continue to earn his trade in the U23s or even at a national league club.
I’d be disappointed (but probably not surprised) if we left him at Cambs - he may not play as many for us here as he would there but we could really have done with him over the last six weeks or so.
Maybe the injuries will abate and it didn’t turn out to be the best decision for him but we need bodies right now, and he has looked the part every time I’ve seen him in action for us or Cambridge.
|I'd love to see Crowe start today|

All that talk about Dortmund, Arsenal et al tracking him, and when he finally signed the contract with us it felt like a huge win, and yet at 19 we've still seen not a glimpse of him at first team level.
I'd love to see what he can do, he's always been one I've been looking out for. What was the deal with the big clubs being after him there must've been some substance to it?
|Well that was a half of two halves|
at 20:19 3 Nov 2020
The patient patient approach from the back looked to be fruitless but fair play, we didn't resort to long balls and the goal was beautiful (keeper will be disappointed though). Edwards and Bishop look really up for it, Nsiala looks confident and Jackson slowly growing, was a shame when the half time whistle blew.
Looking forward to the second half, something I wasn't expecting to be saying after 25 mins.
|I wonder whether Skuse will take on any coaching duties now|

He's said before he wants to take up management when he retires. With him facing four months out maybe he'll take up a role with the staff over the coming months - might be a good introduction to the discipline without him having any formal responsibilities.
|Good to see Josh Emmanuel doing well|

Played every minute for Hull since joining and sitting joint top of the league.
Always seemed like he had the right attitude and while it didn't work out for him here and looked like it was going to get worse when he was released by Bolton, he sounds like he's doing really well at Hull. Good for him.
