If I am reading the regulations correctly...

You can not have more than five loanees in your matchday squad for any one game. Which means if we signed anymore loans (we currently have 5), one loan player would have to dropped from the squad.

Which probably means, barring injuries, we are not going to sign any more loan players.

We are being far too reliant on loans. We are going to be in the exact same position at the end of this season, threadbare squad.

But, this is clearly the way the club wants to play it. Short term contracts and loan signings. No long term planning whatsoever.

   What a load of absolute tosh...Give your brain cell a polish..I have been critical of this loan policy but circumstances have played a part I accept that, but sack the board??? A board who give us stability and have shown continued development on and off the pitch...You really are a bread roll short of a picnic....

Interviewers always ask what attracted you to Doncaster ....think about how inane that must sound to loanees ..I am waiting for one to answer īthe welcoming fans ī.

  Do you know what Michael sometimes I do get your points..I agreed with you on the players leaving as I also know someone who spoke to one of them who was absolutely gob smacked at what he was offered...

  But I for one accept the reality that this is Doncaster Rovers on 7000 gates which loses money.So I am content that the board provide us with the stable club that we have, and are not basket cases like Bury,Bolton and Macclesfield...

  Just who is going to cover the shortfall if the board give up???,i cant recall many Russian or Saudi millionaires thinking we are worth pumping millions into can you??? So who exactly is if you get your way???

I get your point mate, but they say one thing and do another, they donít want championship football otherwise with there wealth they could have a right crack at it, fair enough itís there money but donít say it if you canít...

Rovers are still in league 1.
Dons in the bottom league
Belles in oblivion

Howís this club Doncaster working then?? It isnít.

Short of some existential crisis, the board aren't going to sack themselves. Perhaps barking up the wrong tree with that one.

Wonder if the club know that they only have 13 days to claim back their PPI.

Yeah, because it's impossible for us to use the breathing space of having loanees to sort out the permanent signings we do want in the meantime isn't it?

The genuine concern from my perspective is that last seasonís budget was spent up on loan signings. So will we actually have money left over to look after our own interests after these short term fixes are done?

We already had enough budget for loans before the money from selling Marquis was added into the budget. I want that money to be spent wisely, not just on the first player that we can sign permanently in order to 'prove' what Rovers business plan is.

I donít know what the budget is or where itís been spent. But I know we spent it last season without making many permanent acquisitions, and by relying heavily on loans that we never saw again. Ultimately other clubs benefitted for our outlay. Weíre in the same division starting again, and incurring borrowing costs again.

Jonathan,

We have one more loan signing than we planned for. But you have to look at the success of every club that has been promoted from LG1, every single one of them had bags of loan signings.

I get your point, but if we want the club to be promoted we have to have a mixture, we have to compete and we have to nurture youth. Loan signings are like a try before you buy scenario at times, look how may players came to us initially on loan who we then ended up buying. It does work.

I'm happy to use the loan system, as long as it brings in players we otherwise couldn't afford that add something to the team. Or, as SM says, on a try-before-you-buy so we're not committed to spending upfront. If we only have them for a season, at least it's a season we've squeezed something out of them for our benefit. It's not as if we've got nothing out of the deal.

Billy Sharp initially came on loan and we didnít do too bad out of him. Going back a bit, Mike Jefferey was a loanee, Kieron Brady was another. Overall Iíd say weíve not done too bad in the loan market
