    Thought with a few players out loan it'd be good to track how our players are doing out on loan.

    Kyel Reid - Colchester
    Jordan Turnbull - Patrick Thistle
    Kwame Thomas - Sutton
    Jordon Thompson - Barrow

    Will try and update this thread as much as possible

    We totally and utterly have improved since Turnbull's departure I would say.

    Reid, no loss and Thomas we expect to come back anyway don't we?

    I thought turnbull going was a loss...how wrong can you get. As for Reid...great on his day and should rip this league apart but how reliable a performer is he...no real loss. Thomas...needed games so good for his to go on loan but Sod's law as soon as he goes we get a few striker injuries. Again no great loss and hope he returns stronger, fitter and a little less like bambi.

    You would of thought Thomas is out getting match mituites/fitness. With it being a 1 month loan and with McNulty AND Andrue both injured, you'd like to think he'll be back soon.

    Agree with Turnbull and although I think Reed could offer us something, he clearly doesn't want to be here so out of sight out of mind. Don't care how he's getting on and don't want to know either!

    Watched Partick Thistle v Rangers tonight 2-2.
    Turnbull played 90 mins did ok, didn't get close enough to the striker for Rangers first goal. Compared to concrete Rod, it's like night and day though, with McDonald looking assured and tough in the tackle.
    As a side note, Adam Barton played for Thistle in midfield, did an ok job, but again, we've moved on to better players now.

    Yup. We have to be better than the Scottish Premiership for sure.

    Everyone is praising Turnbull on twitter for his performance, don't see why he went up there, it is such a poor standard

    Kwame injured again? Not on the bench either. Poor lad seems to have terrible luck if he's picked up another knock or something long term

    Poor kid, hope it's not long term and just a niggle. Isn't his contract up at the end of this season too?

    Has he had injury problems throughout his career, or is it just here?

    Kyel Reid not in Colchester's squad either

    Jordon Thompson starts at centre-back for Barrow against Torquay. Staff there must have a lot of confidence in his ability to put him in straight away at his age

    Dunno about his time at Derby or loan's he had, but I remember him having a bad injury in the first game he played for us under Mowbray, I believe he had to have an operation too?
    When I've seen him play he does seem to go a bit gung-ho in his challenges and seems to come off worse!

    Hard to tell with him. He nearly always plays like he is carrying an injury anyway.

    Yeah, I remember. I think I recall one that if he had gone properly into the tackle he probably wouldn't have come off worst.

    I've got an old watch you can loan for a while. It's a Timex. It stopped working years ago but it's right twice a day! ;)

    Yes Reid's been back here for assessment
    I feel for Kwame if he's injured again
    He's apparently a great lad but has had no luck at all with groin problems
    Hope it's not a reoccurrence

    Kwame Thomas was subbed off due to injury in his second game for Sutton Utd. He managed a total of 159 mins beore getting injured. I can't find any details of his injury, but if it's ongoing, I suppose he'll return for an assessment just like Reid.

    Kwame scores for Sutton today. Apparently a cross that evaded everyone and creeped in but they all count

    Edit: wrong Thomas, it was their full back that scored. Typical shit reporting by BBC who said it was kwame.

    Kwame came on as a 75th minute sub for Sutton yesterday.

    Not turning out to be the loan move we had all hoped for him!

    Waste of time him being there and hopefully we have learnt a lesson about sending players there if they are not going to use them, looking at the two deals so far this is a poor link up as the striker we have signed from them is worse than the one we sent them on loan.

    From a very low base, he looks like Beavon to me another non scoring striker no neither get into the correct positions to score.

    Think Jordan thompson played the whole Barrow game. Lost 0-1 but least he's playing every game for them.

    Biamou is still adapting, caused Swindon a host of problems and is just starting to settle. Put decent balls into the box for him to attack and he will score soon, currently he's doing more work with his back to goal like Beavon does but bringing others into it like nazon to feed off.

    He will come good
