Quoted from Biccys
Was Dave Gilbert initially on loan as well? And at the same time as Dale Banton, who wasn't offered a permanent deal because of his Soul-Glo hair do?

I see Dale on a regular basis. He is a rep for one of our suppliers. He has very little hair these days!

Martin Paterson and David Nielson were two very good fairly recent examples.

Pending on how old you are varies on what players make your list...I remember Mark Flatts, Mark Nicholls, Lee Thorpe, Ian Hamilton, Paul Robinson etc back in the day, none really did to much to inspire me, although Robinson had glimpses of talent I think he only scored 1 or 2 in two loan spells over two years. I remember Lennie Lawrence bringing in some Scottish loanee from a German club, can't remember his name though , he probably played 4 or 5 times..Neil Murray was it?? As for bad loans in recent years you could reel off an endless list of pointless panic loans that we have signed since 2007 through till Hurst and Scott took over. Buckley third time around, Newell and Woods were terrible for just signing anyone available, so most guys they brought in had very little substance or thought process behind it...

The best....Wayne Burnett initially joined on loan, David Nielsen, Steve Kabba, Andy Todd, John Oster when he re-joined, Martin Paterson, Rob Atkinson when he initially signed on loan, Jamie Devitt first time around impressed me but its probably because he was the only player in the whole squad that was half decent.

My favourites were Ademola Bankole and Morten Hyldgaard.

I seem to recall that Joe Waters originally came on loan from Leicester(?) and he turned out to be a tremendous signing. There has been far too much dunnage on loan in the last 10 seasons to really pick one out without making some others look comparatively good!

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day,teach a man to fish and you give him an excuse for him to escape from the wife and kids for the weekend and drink lots of beer.
