Josh Sims Tipped For New York Loan Move
Tuesday, 6th Aug 2019 21:43
Josh Sims is rumoured to be joining MLS side New York Red Bulls on loan, but there is some confusion as to how long the loan spell will be.
The rumour mill is suggesting that Josh Sims will join New York Red Bulls on loan, but the question is how long that loan will be for, itis suggested that it will be for the rest of the season, but the MLS is due to finish it's regular season on October 6th, although with play offs and the MLS Cup final it could stretch till November 10th.
Here lies the rub, with that being the case and the 2020 season not starting until March 2020, it does not seem to make sense to loan Sims for a whole English season which would effectively see him unable to play a game for four months perhaps five.
So it seems that this could perhaps be a short term loan allowing Sims to get in some game time till the end of the MLS season and then return to St Mary's in October/November and be available for selection.
The arrival of Moussa Djenepo as well as the potential reintegration of Sofiane Boufal into the squad has pushed Sims down the pecking order, however loaning Sims to New York Red Bulls would give him some experience but allow him to return to Saints when the loan ends, although it is still unclear if he would be allowed to play again in October or have to wait till January

Although not an avid collector, I recently catalogued my collection of football memorabilia and I have 175 items, mostly programmes, some fanzines, and a few ticket stubs which aren’t accompanied by anything else. I have no idea how many more may have been misplaced during house moves, clear-outs etc., but the collection spans nearly 30 years (the earliest is the programme from our 1990 Boxing Day game against Barnet at Layer Rd), and is almost universally Colchester United related (though not quite all of it). I have decided to try and put this to some use, by choosing one at random prior to each match and writing a short article about the match, maybe the programme, and even any personal recollections I have of the game (notwithstanding enforced enfeeblement due to excessive libation). I will try and do this ahead of each game this season, but my apologies in advance if I don’t quite achieve that.
