Re: Loan with option to sign?
False progress is still progress.
I hoonestly have no issue with us nurturing players for the big 4 (or anyone else if it's in our best interests).
Even if the lad doesn't kick another ball for SAFC I'm pleased he was here for a while. If we didn't bring him in, we'd have had to buy another forward last summer. Bruce was no doubt looking (with Jones out, Gyan in, etc.) and decided that Welbeck on loan was a better option, for whatever reason. I'm happy enough with that.
I prepared myself for heaven .... and marched straight into hell.
