Where Are They Now

Makes you wonder just how many players they have on their books. Then absolutely none of them break into the first team.

Its horrible the way football clubs are ran now. So many players that could be heroes at other clubs just wasting their careers away with 90 loan spells and not being anywhere near as good as they probably think they are....

A classic career this

2009–2015 Reading 54 (3)
2009  Bracknell Town (loan) 3 (0)
2009  Didcot Town (loan) 3 (0)
2010  Havant & Waterlooville (loan) 1 (0)
2010  Oxford City (loan) 6 (0)
2010–2011  Horsham (loan) 11 (1)
2011  Dundalk (loan) 11 (2)
2011–2012  Barnet (loan) 27 (2)
2012  Shrewsbury Town (loan) 8 (0)
2012–2013  Aldershot Town (loan) 8 (1)
2013  Cheltenham Town (loan) 20 (1)
2013–2014  Aberdeen (loan) 20 (1)
2015–2019 Chelsea 0 (0)
2015–2016  Reading (loan) 26 (1)
2016–2017  Eintracht Frankfurt (loan) 22 (1)
2017–2018  Hull City (loan) 36 (1)
2018–2019  Sheffield Wednesday (loan) 37 (2)
2019– Fulham 21 (0)

Aye they just stockpile young players for a few years.  A very small number make their first team squad, the rest get sold or freed. 

Thing is they can make decent money on this approach for the ones that get loaned out and subsequently sold so it's an enterprise in its own right.

I think Chelsea had over 40 players out on loan at the same time the season before last.

That's the boy. 

 

He was better than the wee boy we got from West Brom who looked like he'd never played football in his life. Hodgkiss?

I think Alan Tate is my all time favourite loan dud. 

Or maybe the agent's son that we had to take on loan as a sweetener.

He'd had a decent career before he came up as well. Couldnt have been that old? I mind Swansea fans saying he would absolutely walk the Scottish league... standard comment from the (fake) English.

Quite sad that Alan Tate has a League Cup winners medal but stalwarts like Mclean, Shinnie and Lewis won absolutely fuck all

Best thing about his time at the club was played one game think he got subbed after coming on or he was subbed of early. After the game the game the interviewer asked calderwood “why did you take of Vidal so soon” joke went completely over his head

Was he the boy first spotted in the corporate box in the Mainer with the mirror shades on and a bunch of gangsta pals?

David Gonzalez

Still playing at 39 as of last season at Deportivo Cali, back in Colombia.

That GK top would make an excellent 2nd kit.

I was wrong about Sammy in terms of goal return, but wasn't in terms of how truly horrific a player he was.

I've no idea why this came into my head, but whatever happened to Etienne Verveer?

The dutchman works in a bar in the Netherlands 

My friend got speaking to him a few years ago as he asked to watch an Aberdeen game and Verveer mentioned that he was on trial with us.

The quiet polite conversation was interrupted by some jakey dressed in charity shop Paul Smith and tatty Dunlop trainers pissing himself in the corner of the bar and asking where the crew were.

Mind when McInnes would give him the last 2 minutes of just about every game for about 2 years

Can’t have been great for his confidence being subbed in the final against Caley after coming on as a sub. Always put him in the Young brothers category. Tidy enough player but no way good enough for us .

I liked him. 

Good skills and technique. 

Just too slow for the top level. 

Never really managed to have a defined position either when he was coming through. 

Seemed to have some success at championship level playing in the middle of a three behind a striker. 

Good luck to him.

I would agree. Lack of pace killed him.

Mind when the Youngs binned us off to sign 3k a week deal with King Jimmy in Fife. Class

 

Darren Young looked at least half decent with us. Surprised Derek ended up having a better career.
