Ah but Taylor Moore, being young and not having much experience would instantly be dismissed on here due to not being over 30 with 300 lower league games under his belt.Lets get Taylor Moore in too, we've chased this kid for a while so glad to have him here.
Maybe if you'd have sent your top 3 choices for that position NC might have had a chance...Sorry to be a bit glass half empty but he really isn’t the experienced old head centre half we need right now.
sounds like the lad has a great future we need an old wise head right now.
I think you mean if you're good enough, you're old enough. Totally agree, mate! UTP!To be fair if you are old enough you are good enough and Ballard may be a natural leader. Tony Adams and John Terry were both very young when they made their debuts but they were already seen as future leaders
Nothing to do with funds or confidence, anyone decent coming to league 1 is either over the hill last pay day or crocked, whilst you might get short term service from them it isn’t planning for the long term, which is what Critch is all about.He'll be a good addition, we clearly need strengthening at centre back, I'd have preferred someone who is proven at this level but if NC can't find one, doesn't have the funds or confidence to manage that type of player, he's probably the best we can hope for.
The players future, there is little hope of this lad signing permanently. Unsure how that helps us any more in the long term in honesty.Nothing to do with funds or confidence, anyone decent coming to league 1 is either over the hill last pay day or crocked, whilst you might get short term service from them it isn’t planning for the long term, which is what Critch is all about.
That is the whole point of the loan system. In this case it gives a young player who is not ready for the Arsenal first team a chance of regular football. If he is considered as good enough for N.Ireland then he is should be worth a place in a League 1 team.
Him coming in and doing a job may result in an upturn in performances and thus results.
This knackered old fart also has to be fast enough to play a high line.What a surprise.
A bunch of old farts think what the team needs is an old fart in the middle telling all the youngsters how to play.
“AYE Lad!!! Tha’s not looped tha laces under tha boots!!! And tha boots don’t protect tha ankles!!! They needz to be higher!!! Duz tha know nuthin?”.
I meant in general, the notion that Critch only signs under 23s because he doesn’t have the confidence to manage older players.
