Letís just assume there is no injury to an existing player, why is it a silly move?

Iím playing devils advocate. Youíre assuming he wonít. Maybe the club just arenít happy with his situation there, maybe heís not happy there, maybe Banbury arenít happy with him. Could he be lined to a loan somewhere else? There could be plans to get him integrated into the first team sooner rather than later. Whatever the reason, the have deemed it the right thing to do. Time will tell. Likely to be playing some part on Tuesday Iíd expect.

He does appear to have decent career ahead of him, based on what we have seen thus far.  Does the basics well and will gain experience.

I canít quite properly explain why, but the benefits of being loaned to league 1 rather than league two feels less obvious for a goalkeeper than as an outfield player

I mean, shots on target are the same at any level, right?

Swings and Roundabouts I think.

You could argue youíd have better attacking players in L1 who create more chances and are better finishers but the reverse of that is you could argue L1 will also have better defenders - so it kinda balances it out.

Minturn to Chippenham until end of Jan. Probably a good move for him, although on Tuesday's evidence I'd have him ahead of Harries and Brennan as CB cover.

Hmm, agreed. Is Harries on a one year deal? Evidence so far suggests he is stealing a living as a league footballer.

I have high hopes for minturn. Looks a very good prospect indeed. Been a while since we had a youth player start for us for a decent period of time

To be brutally honest I would send him out on loan in January if anybody wants him and reinvest on a young prospect then let his contract run out, he just doesnt seem to be of a decent enough level to warrant even a place on the bench.

I would also send Brennan back in January too and bring in another young defensive loanee.

Something I was thinking, I have no idea what Matt Smith is doing but I would make a cheeky loan bid for him as hes exactly the type of midfielder we are missing, a true box to box player who can tackle but create things too.

He seems to have not played since a poor loan to Doncaster last year where the Donny fans disliked him, and now hes 22 it could be a stepping stone getting his career back on track.

Hockaday on the radio the other night said, "Harries was a great passer of the ball when he first signed for Coventry" maybe he's playing in the wrong position!
