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

Matches of Yesteryear - Wycombe v U's 23/3/02 by wessex_exile
Ahead of another vital match in our bid for promotion back to League 1, this time at t’other St James’ Park in Devon, we return to our previous spell at that level, and dip again into one of the odder football rivalries (given that over 100 miles separates us from them).
Matches of Yesteryear Special - U's v Bradford City 30/12/61 by wessex_exile
This one is a special for the Matches of Yesteryear series, as we step slightly outside the original concept of blogs related to my football memorabilia collection. I am delighted that our very own pwrightsknees approached me with an absolutely fantastic idea just before Christmas, and an idea that really deserves this specific slot in our football calendar. It is also particularly appropriate given the terrible coincidence that Martyn King sadly passed on Christmas Day, the all-time record league goal-scorer for the U’s with 130 goals (1959-64).
Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Lincoln 27/10/18 by wessex_exile
Firstly, my apologies that this is a bit later than usual – it’s been a pretty hectic week at work, and by the time I got home last night, I was ready for a few beers and not a lot more. As we approach a vital double-header at home for the U’s promotion challenge, and on 12 games unbeaten, we come right up to date with an equally vital home game from last season.
Matches of Yesteryear - Cheltenham v U's 22/2/03 by wessex_exile
The U’s travel to the Globe Arena tomorrow, aiming at the very least to keep the unbeaten run going – though in truth after three somewhat disappointing draws against Exeter, Crawley and Stevenage, surely nothing less than three points is acceptable? Ahead of this trip, the Matches of Yesteryear random number generator has chosen a match which for me has a particularly bitter-sweet poignancy.
