What's the line between "good relationships" and "feeder club"? I've got no problem with us having a good relationship with a few local clubs if it provides us a steady stream of loan and permanent talent, especially when we are light-years apart in terms of league positions and club size.

I guess it would become problematic if our business model is so reliant on talent from one specific place that they start holding some sort of formal or informal influence on us.
Is Bartley the fat lad?

It’s rather irritating that our potential good goalkeepers are being snapped up even before they get a game with us. Just hope we can see Quaine Bartley run out in the yellow and blue in the near future. This guy looked immense against Hampton. If he gets the chance and hits the ground running he could be the next Ivan Toney or Ollie Watkins.

I do find it funny that we moan about academy players going off to PL clubs when we can currently put out a 1st XI containing Nightingale, Hartigan, Assall and Rudoni - all academy players.

And if Robbo wanted, we could happily put Osew, Fisher, Robinson and Biler on the bench/rotate them in a lot this season.
Yeah I'm not moaning that we've got a lad in from Chelsea. My frustration is with the game as a whole. Same old song - PL clubs allowed to hoover up all the talent.

*You can see with the Pressley & Cox movements with Brentford and the recent signings in both directions with Chelsea (including a coach) how we could become a feeder club*

That's better.
Not moaning but you can see with the Pressley & Cox movements with Brentford and the recent signings in both directions with Chelsea (including a coach) that you can see how we could become a feeder club, if we aren't already.

It's not necessarily all upside, as our better Academy players may never play for us.
Forss and Ramsdale were absolute quality at this level. If we could bring in similar quality that would be incredible.

Accrington have followed this model for a while and it’s allowed them to stabilise at this level. That’s what we need to do and hopefully these signings will put us on the same road. No more relegation battles please 😂

Morning all. I don't quite understand the clamour for having a player that's "ours", when we could (and have in the past) done better with having somebody on loan. There's enough talent in Premier League u23 squads that we can use to our advantage, if we're smart.

[143.lo.gg.ed] 
While not every permanent signing is a flop like Appiah was, can you really say we've been worse off because the likes of Forss, Ramsdale etc have been on loan?
Yeah i don't really get what's to moan about if we get a loan player or two from Chelsea. Isn't this exactly what we haven't been doing and other clubs have and we've moaned about why we can't get loans from these clubs and these other clubs can?

[31.lo.gg.ed] 
I do agree that continually losing promising academy players for relatively little is annoying and i'll join in any moaning about that.
Kentish - The getting good loans from local clubs is something we’ve been bemoaning about for years though. In my opinion if we get them cheaply then it allows us to spend our budget better on the few marquee players we then need. That’s the thing - we’ve got 5?ex-academy players who can have a go in the first team - they will be cheaper than most… realistically add three loaners and all of a sudden you need 3 really experienced first teamers who you could feasibly break the bank on.

Spartan apparently he got a phone call from Rob McElhenney and it inspired him to move to Wrexham.
26th Jul 2021 01:58:48 
[23.lo.gg.ed] 
I guess he must have sold him on the local attractions £
I see that, that forward from Cambridge, Paul Mulln, has dropped down two divisions to sign for Wrexham. Surely it can't be for the money, can it ? 😂💰💰💰

Bloody busy.
Good to see Yorkshire touting on facebook we should sign the big striker from Hull city on loan.

I've been saying the same for 3 seasons😂
Come on Alex Yee.

I’d rather we signed players from Chelsea and Brentford than Gillingham and Millwall but you do wonder where it is heading. Are we becoming a de facto feeder club, where they take our better Academy players for relative peanuts and we are a ‘finishing school’ to develop theirs?
