Jon Toral left on the bench today, unused sub. Hopefully get that one over the line soon.

Still not convinced by signing these guys on loan, ok they are good players and could have a good few months with us but then there going elsewhere! We need to improve our team for next year not do that by taking guys who are looking for game time! If we can't finish 2nd with the squad we have then there is major problems! Any money that goes out the door must be put towards improving our squad and closing the gap! Paying torals wage for reat of season is money down the drain

If you bring in a player on loan and they do well then it benefits us and them, if they're are poor then you say goodbye.
If we don't use loans then we run the risk of being caught short with injuries, leading to putting inexperienced youngsters into the first team prematurely.
One or two would probably flourish while most would crumble under the pressure placed upon them by expectation, management and media.
It's better to use loan systems than shun them because we have our own developing players.

I don't think we are that short we would have to rely on many youngsters tbh, it is just an opinion and i'm not against loaning players usually but in this window and how the league table is at the moment I would rather we signed permanent players who will help close the gap over next year or so or i'd rather we didn't spend a dime

Im with u on that 1 Nic, as we're not going to win the league its no exactly going to benefit us when they leave in the summer and if they do well its more than likley a championship/ prem team will just buy them. i know its harder to buy good players in Jan but i'd much rather try and get permanent players in and ready for nxt season as it can take players time to get use to the demands rather than have a couple of players that are just going to go back to there own clubs in the summer

Even if we don't bring anyone in its more cash for summer i'd be trying to sort through and find the best available pre contracts that we can get signed up! that's where we need to shop unfortunately but i'm sure with plenty of effort we could find some value there! If we're still light after we've shopped around in the summer thens the time to bring in loan players

We should already have sorted through the list of players that are available in the summer and we should be in discussions with them now. There is a significant list of decent quality players across Europe that would be worth securing. Unfortunately that takes investment so I doubt we will be doing any of this!

looks like Jota came off the bench for Brentford today so don't think he can sign for us as we would be the 3rd diff team he had played for in a season.
hope we can sign Toral tho - he does look like he has a bit of guile which we need in final 1/ 3

He's on loan at Grenada in Spain so I doubt he's been near a Brentford bench in a while.
