Thanks for confirming Ash. I must have missed that one. I blame Christmas ;)

Should free up room for some new loans as we had reached the limit of 5 at any one time.


So, if three have already returned, the transfer window 'strengthening' could just turn out to be more of the same. I hope I'm wrong. Feeling less confident, though.

Interesting to hear Cooper talk about some deals looking higher up the pyramid. I wonder if these three might be L2 or higher and that might be the reason for waiting till 2nd Jan.

Sorry that Iacovitti is going back but presumably that is because he is unfit and out for a few more weeks not because we don’t need him.

I had forgotten Randall was on loan. Neither he or Gomes did enough to warrant continuation but I thought both had promise.

Apparently Gomes is one of the highest rated young players at Liverpool, lots of people have said good things about him, so I would have regarded his loan signing as a bit of a coup. However, perhaps he didn't have the physicality required for Division Two or didn't quite fit into the system that MC wants to use, who knows. Either way, I wouldn't regard him as a flop. Iacovitti looked very good to me, it might be that his parent club didn't want to extend the loan and want him back to either continue his development or loan him out to another club that uses different tactics. I didn't really see enough of Randall to make any meaningful comment about his ability or success of that particular loan.

Perhaps we should remember that we are loaning players from clubs several divisions above ourselves, the players we have borrowed are with them for a reason, they are mostly young and still early in their footballing careers. Of all the players we have borrowed, over many seasons, Iacovitti and Fitzwater are for me head and shoulders above all others...with the possible exception of Jonathan Bond...I would be amazed if they don't go on to have very good careers in the game and I will be proud to remember having seen them play for our club.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
