problem with loan players is that they are that. at the end of the day you cannot base your side on someone who,ll be gone sometimes sooner than later. again for every stott there is a baines or askew. like the idea of season long loan lads but not those who,ll only be with us say from now till the new year where you have to start the process all over again with someone new. thats if they are willing to listen in the first place to jim or anyone else at the club. i imagine jim will know some of the latter characters who he,s had.
