Edited On: 10/11/2018 09:33EFL asks for extension to LOAN PERIOD
The English Football League has asked the world governing body Fifa to allow its member clubs to make loan signings outside of the transfer windows.

EFL clubs were previously allowed to bring players in on emergency loans, lasting between 28 and 93 days.

However, that system was scrapped prior to the 2016-17 campaign.

A good idea you thing ?
We could do with a good striker immediately.[smi]

Maybe 'coaches' should do what they used to do and coach the players they've got to play their way rather than taking the lazy option of signing 'their type of player'. Jack Charlton made about half a dozen signings in 4 seasons.

How about changing the system to suit the strengths of the players already at the club instead of just playing the way everyone else plays.

Also the loan system is all wrong because it allows clubs like Chelsea to accumulate loads of players and loan them out to see who is any good. Far better to end it entirely so that the talent is shared out more evenly.

Are you suggesting that clubs bring their own players through a coaching system ?

This would deprive clubs like Chelsea of signing a good percentage of good young players from all over the world and then benevolently lending 30 or so players out to the minions like us. [:D]

Yes, that's exactly what I am suggesting.

The players you have on August 1 are the players you use through the season. No loans, no emergencies. If your goalies are all injured, put the fattest player in goal.

System is right at present.

Teams can sign players who are out of contract during the window if they are really stuck to put a team out.

What was wrong is where teams had 10 players on loan, so the core of their teams were loanees. Some of these loans came from sister clubs. I am also concerned agents are loaning players out who those clubs could never afford without breaking FFP rules. Wolves and Watford gained promotion with generous help.

Agree with that reds, Watford in particular were borderline legal with several clubs in different countries being run by the same owner appearing to shuffle players around.

It would probably be better for Boro if the loan system was completely scrapped and everyone went back to producing their own players even if it meant that Boro helped Liverpool and Man U get back to win trophies again as in the "good old days".

Yeah, I don't understand how Watford's owner having three clubs and the City Football Group owning Man City, Girona, New York and Melbourne isn't illegal. The informal partnerships like Chelsea-Vitesse and United and their Belgian feeder club I can understand but the teams with the same owners could feasibly play against each other in Europe, so surely it should violate some rule. Money talks, as ever.

And agreed, the loan system isn't fit for purpose since the likes of Chelsea took it to mad extremes of 33 players out on loan or whatever it is.

Surely something like maximum five out, five in would be healthier to spread talent around and get young players playing meaningful football.

Hoovering up young talent is the same kind of financial doping as spending 120m a season on the latest galactico. You can see why a 14 year old might want to be coached at City rather than Rotherham whilst he's developing, say, but for a 19 year old at Chelsea facing four years of random loan spells, it's a totally different story.
