RUFC - Will we see players come and go this week?
Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott said, last week, that he is prepared to let some of the 'fringe' players in the side go out on loan and has already compiled a list and sent it out to other clubs.
Well, there isn't long to go now - Thursday is the cut-off line - and, as far as I'm aware, no one has come in for any of our players as yet.
It got me wondering who exactly the fringe players are.
I think probably, Ollie Banks will be one of them as he's yet to have a start in the first team this year. Another might be Ben Pringle. So, who are the others - if there are any others? And, have we got enough players in the squad to let some out on loan?
I'm never sure if I agree with loan signings - yet everyone is at it aren't they. At the moment we have a number of loan players - Conrad Logan (Leicester), Brett Williams (Reading), Guy Branston (Bradford) and Jon Harley (Notts County) - and, apart from Guy who couldn't play on Saturday, the others did well, Logan keeping us in the game in the dying seconds.
I suppose if you`ve got young players who are needing games then loaning them out to help other clubs for a few weeks is a good idea. It helps them to get into the habit of playing first team football in front of crowds. But I wonder what the players, already in that side, think? Does it affect them at all? Do they have to change their way of play to accommodate a player just for a matter of weeks?
And should there be such a thing as a 'transfer loan window`? If it`s such a good idea then why can`t you loan players throughout the season?
