Why does going on loan at a team mean a player isn't good enough for them? By that logic Conor Townsend, Ollie Palmer and Nathan Pond weren't good enough for us because we didn't sign them permanently.

Because if they are any good and available clubs would try to follow through with a signing. non of the above were available due either to their personal choice or their clubs requirements, and a loan was made available to give them match fitness after injury which was a win win situation.

Jamie Ness however was a free signing for Scunny, Crew and Orient with no intentions of keeping him.

Ah I see, so a player signs for one side and that instantly discounts anyone else being interested at any point.

You have no idea if either of those sides wanted to sign him, he was maybe offered a deal and turned them down. I don't know if that's true anymore than you do but you can't just make assumptions. Crewe liked him enough to extend his loan to the whole season.

In fact, a quick google search showed me that Crewe did try to sign him but he chose to sign for Scunny instead. http://m.scunthorpetelegraph.c.....47-detail/story.html Clearly useless though because Garth said so.

i think we may be barking up the wrong tree with this one.
i suspect that a number of his signings will be youngsters who he and/or wilkinson have had dealings with. If you think about it we already have a number of experienced players contracted (summerfield and berrett, amazingly, have each played nearly 300 games each) plus Vernon and hopefully Collins & Disley.
Therefore it is not experience we are lacking, it's pace and creativity, which can be provided by new younger,hungry players coming in

Its all ifs, buts and maybe`s, for me I would be looking for proven player who has spent some time at a club and therefore probably a consistent performer in League football, not someone bouncing about clubs like a pin ball

I think you're wasting your time looking at that list. Most of them will be on more than our first team combined.

Guessing that RS knows of Rhys Healey from Cardiff who was scoring for fun on his loan to Newport.
