A loan spell will serve him well providing he's going there to get match time and not just be a number 2.

Morning,
I feel sorry for him, replaced by 2 33 year old journeymen tells its own story, I`m sure if he knuckles down he will be able to prove our management wrong.

Is playing for AFC Wimbledon where 1st team football isn't guaranteed any better than playing in our 23`s team where he would be first choice ?

Is working with Wally Downes better than working with our own 1st team coach ? Or would he be too busy getting the 33 year olds up to speed ?

I think he's actually got the chance to prove our management team right. If he'd stayed he might have seen the occasional outing in the Mickey Mouse or the F A Cup but assuming Fabianski stayed fit all he'd have done is warmed the bench. And if Fabianski had got crocked and the kid had been found to be not up to it, as one or two on here who have seen him suggest might happen, we'd have been fucked.

At least at Wimbledon he should get match time which can only benefit all parties imo. And I'd suggest League One standard is a hell of a lot higher than Division 2 of the Under 23's. And if he'd stayed wouldn't that also hold up the development of the other lad, Anang is it ?

Fair points, you are becoming my wife, following me around correcting me :D

Yes it is Anang, a very tall athletic lad, but there is also another younger, a 16 year old whos name escapes me, already played for England at U15 level, a lot is expected of him, at our Academy at least.

Not correcting mate, just putting across another way of looking at things. ;)

From your posts I'm guessing you've watched the U23's a lot more than I have but from what I have seen the standard's not quite as good as League 2 which is why I'm all in favour of getting the better kids out on loan.

Providing of course they get match time. Otherwise there's no point.

Yeah good luck to him,seems to be highly rated...it's all about game time,and pressure for him
at the moment.
It's a bit tougher for a young goalie to break thru than an outfield player,any Pl side will want a
good few years experience of pretty much top level footie,is why most come in from Abroad now,
or move on when their team drop.....(which is a huge mistake according to me) :lol:

His time will come,but unfortunately is still 3/4 years away...all about taking the right route thru,
maybe year or 2 in Spain/Italy/Germany if he gets a chance to..

But Again good luck Nathan...you'll get there if you want it enough..

I like to keep an eye out to see how our loanees are doing but I just don't get this one. It's hard enough for a keeper anyway because obviously only one can play but I checked to see if he played and the poor bastard wasn't even on the bench FFS.

Now I'm all for sending players out on loan but what is the point if they're not getting the experience that I thought was the point of going on loan.? If he's not considered good enough for League One wouldn't he be better off going to, say, a National League side where he might have more chances of actually doing something to benefit his future career.

Apparently, he was out with a groin strain. Lets hope it's right and he gets his game time there.
