ZipsandmanZip That was woeful. Yes Leeds were very good and we were outclassed but we made it so easy for them. When you play a much better side you have to disrupt them and get into their faces. We didn’t and just allowed them all the time in the world. We were also asleep when they took short corners.
Loader needs a loan to a League one side next season and shouldn’t start for the first team again this season. He was very poor. East showed one or two nice touches but his weak clearance resulted in the chance which Hernandez duly took. Yids was the only one who won his personal battles.
I’m struggling to think of many games at this level where we have been so played off the park. Unless we get key players back it’s difficult to see where the points are coming from to keep us safe.
Which League 1 side do you have in mind?
What style do they play?
What type of manager do they have? Is he a progressive manager who is going to give Loader a chance and coach him so he learns things that will develop his career?
Or is he a manager who is under pressure to get results and one or two bad games are going to see Loader sit on someone's bench for 7 or 8 months?
It's alright saying "send him out on loan" but it has to be the right move for him to develop.
What you have just said goes without saying. It is up to our club to ensure he joins a club that will benefit has career progression (obviously).
I think Loader should be given a chance next season. Hopefully, with a pre-season behind him, and new season, new start, the pressure will be off. Besides, we may be in league one ourselves next season
But as for this season, he shouldn't play another second until if/when we are definitely in the division next season
