Super U's to secure the points at the Lamex Stadium 19:39 - Jan 3 with 888 viewsdurham_exile

Stevenage Away on Saturday at the Lamex Stadium with Graham Westley in charge for the fourth time.

But this is overshadowed by two rumours with one gaining currency all the time. Jevani Brown has apparently signed on loan for Forest Green Rovers and Kurtis Guthrie is due to sign on loan for Bristol Rovers from Stevenage Borough. Guthrie, if the rumour is true, will not be missed against us tomorrow. He usually is the thorn in our side and ever since his acrimonious departure from the then Weston Homes has normally scored against us.

But I am incandescent with rage at the news (broken by Wessex) that Jevani Brown whom we paid £315K for from Cambridge United will be allowed to sign for one of our direct rivals in the League Two promotion race. Whether the loan agreement prevents him from playing against us the damage will have been done because FGR are a direct rival and you can guarantee that he will suddenly appear to play like the starlet that he was supposed to be when we signed him. Mark Cooper must be laughing all the way to League One!!!

Loan players by all means, but not to direct rivals. That must be the golden rule. Rant over.

Brown’s departure is all the stranger when we have a litany of injuries:

Bramall - ankle
Sowunmi – ribs
Senior – groin
Cowan-Hall -achilles
Clampin unknown

Is Junior the new Bonne – will he be loaned out or can he play up front for these vital games or will he languish in the reserves.

There appears to be no suggestion that Colchester are entering the loan market and so to offer one of our so-called stars on loan shows poor judgement at best.

JM must look carefully at his squad to determine the best formation and starting XI at a ground where frankly only three points will be good enough.

Gerken

Jackson Eastman Prosser James

Pell Stevenson

Harriott Gambin Nouble

Robinson

Subs:
Norris Comley Kensdale Ross Fernandes Poku Junior

Stevenage weather will be 7 degrees Celsius and dry with plenty of sunshine. Ideal for January football.

I have decided to travel down the A1(M) the 217 miles for the game and have persuaded my eldest son to accompany me. Colchester are likely to have 500 supporters so the atmosphere should be a good one.

Safe journey to the travelling faithful.

A reminder about the top seven in the table

Swindon 25 49
Exeter 25 47
Crewe 24 44
Bradford 24 43
FGR 25 40
COL U 24 39
Northampton 24 38

Given the imminent transfer of Jevani Brown note the position of FGR!!!!!

Enjoy the game.

GOSBTS the Wiredu loan deal was up on 11 Dec. I thought he was a good loaner but we made no attempt to extend the arrangement.

Anyway more important matters hope your sister in law and baby are both doing well.

Stevenage will be a new ground for me and on paper we should prevail.

Cambridge away will be a good game we owe them for earlier in the season.

Charlton had three loan deals and all were called back as club now under new ownership so wanted to access where they were at before transfer window opened is my understanding of the situation Durham.

I can't let this one go it's eating away at me!

Jevani Panenka Brown was purchased to replace Szmodics.

I have only seen first team appearances including Spurs so can't comment on the U23 but to allow him to go to FGR is just wrong on so many levels.

Forget the £315k for a moment, as if we could, he has not been given the opportunity.

I have been busy today so match write up can wait until Monday.

However why do we get it so wrong so often with these players.

Anyway Morecambe awaits on Saturday.

I appreciate your frustration Durham, but these things happen. You’re right, Brown did look like a replacement for Szmodics, but I’m sure we’d all agree he isn’t that player yet. I would disagree that he hasn’t had the opportunity, because we don’t see the day in day out on the training ground (nor, apart from Noah, the U23 matches he’s played in). As Tom would say, it’s not unusual in these circumstances for a player to be loaned out, and it doesn’t surprise me that it’s a club at our level. It was never going to be League 1 (or above), and in the context of the fee we paid, unlikely to be non-league. Going to FGR is a shrewd move in my opinion, it gives him match time playing at the right level, and at a club who can afford to buy him if they like what they see and we still don’t think he’ll be the right fit for the U’s once his loan period expires.

Wessex - as they would sing on Frozen - "Let it Go" and so I will (for now).

Only three points at the Globe Arena will revive my spirits after failing to beat ten men (again).

Haha - never had you as a Frozen aficionado

Okay, allowing the dust to settle on the actual decision, I'm picking up another vibe regarding Brown through t'internet whispers - has something happened we know nothing about?

There have always been rumours of an attitude problem coming out of Cambridge in the past, and he was let go with immediate effect from Posh due to what was reported as "off-field incidents" at the time. However, we also have the curious affair of what happened at FGR for our league game? Brown went down on the coach with the rest of the squad, and then bizarrely didn't even make the bench - that's a long way to take a player you have no intention of playing.

McGreal said at the time "Jevani is one of the players who has to improve. I’ll have a chat with him but these boys who have been coming on like Kwame (Poku) and Brendan (Wiredu) have been playing particularly well. I can only have so many subs on the bench and people have to miss out".

Is there more to this than meets the eye?

Wessex a very interesting take on matters

I have simply been looking at this from a football perspective rather than allegations of something nefarious.

I suspect this story might have legs, in the meantime let's focus on on field affairs.
