Location: Nottingham. 800 years ago outlaws stole from the rich. Little has changed here

I guess the key is where they sit in the pecking order. If they are ahead of the youngsters then it's a bad move. If it's as cover for the youngsters, or to allow the youngsters to be brought in gradually then it may not be a bad move.

It's certainly a strange one.

I think after yesterdays win the club have decided to bring him back to give some people something to complain about again.

Theyve taken the opportunity with relish.

Thats not it though Marty, Ferres is old, useless, a penaltymachine and full of errors imo. Not about wanting somthing to complain about. If you think he's better than that and its a good thing he's back, great, i disagree, just different opinions. For me, he's the last player id be bringing back, in any capacity. Happy Harrisons getting his chance which i know dosnt fit the wanting 'somthing to complain about' label, but he's the profile of player i like to see getting a chance...happy with that one.

The club has to realise that in defeats you can get victories. We lost against Wigan 2 week ago but youngsters Holroyd, McLelland, Newman, Oledski etc got valuable minutes in their development. Minutes that are vital for the club going forward.

Remains to be seen how long these 2 loanees play but they could take away minutes from Walters, Muizz, O'Connor who between them could easily cover the next month though i suspect both loanees have been brought in to cover prop rather than back row.

Obviously short term thinking with these signings. Have the club ensured our young squad players they'll be guaranteed game time later in the season? Once the mid week games kick in.
YEAH LIKE WHATEVER!
TEAM UP! TEAM UP!

Ferres says he might not even play but part of his role is to help the younger players develop, by all accounts this is something he’s really good at. Might not be the daft move every one thinks it is

If we need a loan signing of a player to help our young players develop, then theres something seriously wrong with our coaching set-up.

Who’s said we need it? It’s more likely using the fact that Fev aren’t playing so taking advantage of the opportunity that’s available.

You said bringing him in might not be as daft a move as some are making out because he's going to work with our youngsters...If we dont need it then whys it a positive that he's coming in to do it?

Bringing a player in to do something ,off the field, that we dont need is still a daft move and If we do need it, then it dosnt say much for our coaching staff that a loan player can offer our youngsters something they cant.

Because you’re looking at it in very black and white terms, just because hes been brought in doesn’t mean there’s a need, it could simply be that the opportunity has arrived because of Fevs situation not that there is a pressing need or something wrong with the coaching set up.

For there to be a positive outcome doesn’t mean there was a negative to begin with.

Nightmare recruitment policy has Sinny gone mad?
One month is 4 weeks too many when it comes to Fatty Ferres
