Don't I know it, very disappointing, would prefer development of our youngsters. Bristol Rovers have a big hole to fill after Anderson went back to Newcastle after gaining them promotion, they have bigger crowds than us and more cash available, we wouldn't cope in my opinion and if promoted would come straight back down.
I am not a supporter of loans, bigger clubs take on more than they can address in terms of development of youngsters and fail them, if loans were not permitted many of these youngsters would join lower league clubs and that would be a benefit to both.
We need a defensive midfielder, have we a youngster to develop?

Apart from the annoying ad banner obscuring the picture there were a couple of interesting points there.

Clubs are approaching the County with a view to loanees coming in, that means we must be well thought of. Nice. Also I hadn’t realised that we won more points away from home last season than home.

Looking for at least one player to come in early next week, possible two. That’s good.

Yes we have.Woodiwiss and Twamley who have been loaned out again.They will get regular first team football at Pontypridd but,they should be part of our squad now.I have said for a couple of years now,Woodiwiss would make a good DM player.He can tackle,defend and is comfortable on the ball,just what JR wants.He is small so maybe not suitable in a normal CB position,why can’t JR or Flynny before him see his ability and play him rather than just Papajohn games.He will even miss those games now,so frustrating.

Definitely think we'll need to up our game in midfield. Bennett's a DM, which is fine, but Bowen and Wildig looked far too reluctant to press forward or shoot yesterday, instead opting to shirk responsibility by playing sideways / backwards passes. That puts an awful lot of pressure on Evans and Norman to create from out wide. Waite may be a bit raw, but at least he shows willing to push forward and make something happen. I'd rather see him or a player like him start the next game, and hopefully that's the area Rowberry and Kelly are prioritising.

Obviously also have to point out that there's a very good podcast out there touching on this and other issues...
