i think he's trying to say that he seems to struggle a little with the pressing game we want him to do. I guess this is why he hasn't had so many minutes as yet.. You could hear the bench shouting at him.. He went missing for a little bit in pre-season so wonder if he had a knock and is a bit behind on the fitness compared to the rest of the squad.Apologies but this comment seems abit daft.
His chance will come and I think he will take it . A very long season and for us to succeed we will have to ensure we keep players as fresh as possible which will require intelligent and selective rotation from probably November onwardsHopefully he'll get some time on Tuesday. We'll certainly need to rotate a bit with games coming thick and fast. You do wonder though where he'll fit in once Ghoddos arrives, not going to be many spots available on the bench..
It might, I feel the Div 1 side would need to play a similar style to us. Whether that is plan A or plan B. He needs confidence and for that scoring goals again, which he was doing at Sparta.
Can't see it. It was a lot of money to pay for someone just to loan out to division 3 and he didn't come here for that. I'm surprised he hasn't had more opportunities as I expect he is. Hope to see more of him soon.
I think part of the benefit of the AFCW loan for Forss was an opportunity to learn the stuff he wouldn’t learn in the B team or 10-15 minute sub appearances. How to work for chances in a team that won’t lay them on a plate, dealing with the pressure of not being on top and being ready to work defensively, gaining the physicality needed to brush off agricultural defenders. These polished off and rounded Forss’s all round game which was already attuned to the luxuries afforded by our team quality and style.Absolutely not. It’s more about the system, I reckon and possibly stamina.
He was out injured for the entire second half of the seasonHe has had very little chance thus far. He joined the team in January, was being gently eased in to the BFC / Championship ways of doing things, then came the lockdown. After the restart the BMW was definitely the weapon of choice, and he was restricted to the odd sub appearance. Realistically, he is brand new this season, and Toney and Forss are both ahead of him right now due to their experience in the way we play, and the cloggers he is likely to come up against. Let's see how he gets on with a run of starts, if that can happen.
I think that would be good for him and us. The talent is clearly there he just needs game time to show it, which we cant offer at the moment. The loan has to be in this country I believe, as I don't think we would learn anything new in Europe. Hope he starts tonight.With Toney, Forss, Mbuemo, Fosu, Canos and now Ghoddos now options for the front three I wouldn't be at all surprised if he goes on loan somewhere
Neither am I but it doesn't mean I'm good enough or ready to be challenging for a spot in the first team.He's not going to learn anything about how to fit into our style of play nor are the other players going to learn about his movement if he goes on loan anywhere, is he?
No, but we are going to need a decent number of players to enable us to survive the rigours of the season and making them unavailable by loaning them out won’t helpNeither am I but it doesn't mean I'm good enough or ready to be challenging for a spot in the first team.
Quite right we have from the middle of October a run of 19 games in 76 days that would put the strongest of squads under pressure with possible injuries or suspensions.No, but we are going to need a decent number of players to enable us to survive the rigours of the season and making them unavailable by loaning them out won’t help
We truly have an embarrassment of riches when magicbees suggests loaning out a forward!!I think that would be good for him and us.

It's a shame but I can only assume he's not showing enough in training to be considered. Either that or he's seen as a number 9 only, rather than an option out wide.
Not sure he can play RB?? Presumably we gave Stevens minutes in case we need to use him in the coming weeks..If we're opting to give a 17 year old minutes in the Carabao cup rather than him, it does seem like a loan is the most sensible option here - he's 21 in a couple of months.
