Morning Folks, I've just seen on the BBC Sport page that we are going to loan out Hastie and Middleton, but Ojoe will join the 1st team for pre-season training. I don't see this as a way forward for us TBH, we should play our own young players first and foremost, Docherty will more than likely also go out on loan, sorry, but I am having second thoughts about the direction we appear to be going in, just my own opinion folks.

I wouldnít believe everything you read on there mate, the mainstream media are so far off the pace these days itís embarassing. You only need to look at the appointment of Gerrard himself, think only Devlin at the sun has the scoop. I would imagine that all players will be given pre season to show what they are made of and if the management team think anyone is surplus to requirements then loans will be likely. Canít see Hastie going out on loan but Middleton probably. Would be worse places to send Middleton than Motherwell, Iíd like to see him play SPL if he goes out.

11 Jun 2019 08:21:20
Don't know enough about Hastie but I honestly think Middleton would benefit from playing week in week out. At the moment I don't think he gets near our starting 11.

11 Jun 2019 08:44:10
Not saying not true but what's the point in buying hastie then loaning him if that's the case I'm astonished, if that was always plan been as well leaving him at motherwell for next season as part of deal strange if true.

Send hastie middleton docherty and rossiter all on loan. Hopefully get aribo in the door along with kent and ojo. 1 poss 2 centre halfs.

11 Jun 2019 09:44:52
I confess that I know nothing about Ojo but it seems to me if we get him on loan we don't need Kent back on loan and if we do get Kent we don't need Ojo. I'd be disappointed to see us under pressure or obligation to play loanees - excluding Kent of course - at the expense of a player like Hastie. There was lots of talk about how he would improve under Gerrard. If he's not training with first team day in day out and getting games, he won't.

I would loan hearts docherty lafferty and Middleton and as part of the deal they loan us souter with a view to buy if he can cut it we sign him if not he goes back. Make them and us stronger.

Also if we are serious about loaning out hastie give him to the the sheep or hibs. Basically make other teams stronger when playing them and weaken them when playing us.

Ivger. I'm sick to death of making the point about loaning out some of our young players. Are we preparing them for the future with Rangers? If so, how long will this take? I completely disagree about loaning out Rossiter, Docherty and Hastie. If Rossiter is fit, he is good enough to go straight back into the team. Docherty deserves a chance at least in the first team squad and why sign Hastie then loan him out again? Some of our own youngsters could play say in the League Cup matches to give them experience then those who do well can be involved on the subs bench or even start some other games. We made this mistake before, signing overrated players because of the fear of not winning trophies. As for the like of Lafferty, get rid!

Problem is Doiger who do you drop. I see our top 6 as Davis, Kamara, Jack, arfield, Kent/ murph/ jones, defoe/ morelas If we sign Aribo then you have Docherty dorrans McCrorie halliday rositer docherty candy hastie ojo And out on the wing we have 6 wingers fighting for one spot Both rossiter and docherty have did well down south last season so let's see if they can cut it at high end of our league. Both their game time next season imo will be limited. So why not do what liverpool are doing with us let other teams develop them for our benefit. I would rather see them playing every week rather than sit on our bench.
If they both have a Brill season at say hearts then they will be more ready to be trusted to go right into first 11.

Good point Stewartyyblue, but we'll have league and cup matches and (hopefully) another good Europa League run so we'll need strength-in-depth. Maybe that's a happy problem as we finished well last season (apart from the last game) .

11 Jun 2019 13:55:12
Doiger, this is utter nonsense and you clearly donít understand the way football operates. A bigger club loans players to a smaller club. Those players are better than the ones they have. Kent was better than Middleton, but wasnít good enough to get in the Liverpool team. He came to us, played and improved to the point Liverpool might see a future for him at the club. Ojo will come in and probably be better than Hastie or Middleton at the minute. So we loan them out for the season, they play every week and then come back better. Docherty will probably be better for having played every week for Shrewsbury every week. THAT IS ďdevelopingĒ our young players. Leaving them to rot on the bench or playing them when they arenít ready and their confidence gets burst isnít.

Being loaned out does nt mean your not good enough or not going to be good enough, some players will be at the stage they need to play 20-30 games in order to progress at a decent rate, if we canít provide that then they have to go out to get it and in Docherty case he could go out again but hopefully take a step up in division etc to progress further.

11 Jun 2019 14:25:24
What is everyoneís problem with this? We had the opportunity to get Hastie for free/ development fee. Loan him for a season for experience and hopefully be ready for first team next season.

If we had waited another year he would be unavailable down south probably. Every big team does this. Makes sense if not yet ready but has potential.

11 Jun 2019 15:31:11
If Hastie is to be loaned out then who would be the club to loan him too?

12 Jun 2019 07:49:23
Arthur D back to Motherwell as part of a deal to take Turnbull would be nice. If not then either League 1 down south or someone like Livi.
