Imagine keeping Jones whilst letting Carvalho go.
It hasn’t been the best campaign for the lad, but yet it hasn’t been the best campaign for the whole caboodle, the lad is clearly talented, he’s essentially still a kid, he had a decent season at Fulham and clearly has potential, hence Jürgen bringing him in,
It’s obviously very difficult to break thru into the first team and it will be the same for him this campaign, so it makes sense to have the lad playing regularly at a higher standard than he would with our U23’s ,
Stay and fight I hear some say and yes he could, but again we are in transition so won’t have the same opportunities he would normally get had we a settled side, we seen how beneficial it was for Harvey going out on loan and the prove will be in the pudding regards to Tyler Morton & Connor Bradley who plied their talents for Blackburn Rovers & Bolton W respectively last season,
We need to do as much as we possibly can to help nurture our young talents, we don’t have the spondoolies to match those oily fuckers who can buy ready made replacement’s with one flick of a cheque book, we nurture, we enhance, we mentor, promote natural talent and put all the ingredients into a programme designed to get the very very best out of what we have,
Carvalho is one of those talents, signing the lad and then chucking him under the bus isn’t good for us, and least of all isn’t good for the lad himself, send him out on loan, build up his confidence as well as invaluable experience and see what kind of player emerges after a season or so,
Whereas Curtis is perhaps a season or two in Trent’s wake, you could argue Carv is two seasons further back in Jone’s wake, I wasn’t what you would call Curtis’s greatest fan recently, however I’ve been forced to eat quite a lot of humble pie, to be fair to the lad he has been quite exceptional so while I munch away, humbled but delighted, spare a thought on how good a talent we have from both and the knowledge that our future is indeed pretty rosy.
