Loan thread 22:07 - Mar 14 with 1482 viewsTreforys_Jack

When did "loan" players become a thing ? Listening to soccer Saturday and it was game after game where the goal scorer was on loan from another team. I know we've done relatively well using the loan market, but surely its detrimental to the sport.
I think it was Chelsea who had 20 odd players out on loan that cannot be right. It distorts whatever division these players are loaned to.

Edit
First players I remember being on loan to us were John Salako or Joey Beauchamp, any earlier?

Spot on they have 20 plus, frightening.
I think this sanction thing has affected the ones they have though.
Salako definitely, the original Joe Allon, I think we had Terry Phelan on a free ?
It’s tough to recall anyone pre Salako / Allon.

Watch, someone will have a list now.

Edit. There was a Scottish bloke in 1972 I’m reliably informed by what’s app. Anyone ?

Watching Palace v City tonight.

Guehi and Gallagher starring for Palace , two we helped develop them but they belong to someone else.

I would much rather develop our own players.

Just seems something that's really bad for most teams and the integrity of the sport.

SANDY ALLAN
Scottish striker Sandy Allan had a loan spell at Swansea City during the 1972-73 season. A former amateur with Barnsley and Doncaster Rovers, he was a prolific goalscorer for Rhyl prior to joining Cardiff City for £12,500 in March 1967. He netted a hat-trick against Mjondalen in the 1969-70 ECWC and moved to Bristol Rovers for £12,500 in March 1970. Harry Gregg signed him on loan in March 1973 and he scored once in seven League games for struggling Swansea. He joined Cape Town City in March 1974, then had a spell as Harrogate Railway's player-boss before returning to South Africa to set up a window company.

Chelsea and Man Utd areeffectively manipulating the Champounship by "picking winners".

Chelsea withdrew Gallagher from Charlton stuggling to give to Swansea doing well.

The reverse happened with Laird leaving struggling Swansea to go to Bournemouth.

Somme executive at these clubs are effectively loading the dice and making the championship as noncompetitive as the premier league. Giles went from Cardiff to Blackburn.

If the big clubs get a bonus of a increased payment for a permanent transfer on promotion it is border line rigging and potentially corrupt.

Birch should loo at it. He however was the man that allowed the players to be in a photo shoot for the now discredited BLM movement,

Wise sage since Toshack era

Yes, we had Jimmy Rimmer on loan from Manchester Utd in 73 I think.

Thanks. That would have been a lot of money for us in those days. I remember him coaching me at underhill. Players use to coach locally on those days.

Didn't Chelsea have 35 out on loan a few seasons back? Several at their Dutch "feeder" team.

The rules should be changed. These players at Chelsea, 19/19/20 years old and on wages we could never afford if they were first team regulars here. it is harming the sport as a whole and simply reinforcing the dominance of a few teams at the top.

It's money again.

Just my opinion, but WTF do I know anyway?

Indeed, Premier teams are directly influencing other divisions and not just Prem teams, how many players do we currently have out on loan ?

Carter-Vickers is still a Spurs player but he's nowhere near good enough to play for their first team.
He's now at Celtic, that's his 7th different loan spell, absolutely ridiculous!

More a sea change of longer term loans. Salako, Lampard and John Hendry were for a month or two more often than not just a short term cover which were fine from both sides

Siggurdson and De Guzman were a change in being for longer terms. It seems crazy we have youngsters out in League 1 & 2 and bring in PL youngsters to cover-albeit some like Guehi have been great for us.

At the Wales v Austria game, 5 starting players came through the Swanssa City academy. Almost half the team.

Joe Allen, Ben Davies, Joe Rodon, Dan James and Connor Roberts.

This made me very proud.

We should always look to bring through our own players.

I see Chelsea have refused Crystal Palace permission to play Connor Gallagher which just goes to further highlight the ridiculous loan situation. They have directly weakened Palace, or have Palace been falsely strengthened all season. Whole system stinks.

Why would you allow one of your players to play against you? It is normally written into the loan contract that this is not permitted.

Exactly, that's why the system is flawed. If you loan a player then he should be allowed to play against any side , even the parent club.

Fabio Borini was a great loan signing. Brenda take a bow.

Keith Lowe from Wolves played a handful of games for us but one was a wembley final. I was not a big fan.
