    i don't think playing for burnley would've done much for him either really, poch should've kept him here.

    Jesus, we loaned out a player who would have got minutes for our first team so he could play for West Brom's youth team? Shockingly bad loan, it's as if Sherwood was back.

    You can't say that for certain, but there has definitely been some games since his loan went though that we've got to the 60th minute and have been crying out for an injection of creativity.

    Really badly thought out move.

    West Brom's had those games as well. Except in Pulis' mind, their games are crying out for the creative stylings of James McClean:eek:

    Pulis is like Poch in that regard actually. Whereas Poch's standard sub is Carroll for Lamela at 65', Pulis' is McClean for Gardner at 70'.

    Really a fucking shocking loan. Would have been better off keeping him or going through with the loan to Burnley.

    Pritchard chose West Brom, not us. Although I think we should have kept him anyway- but maybe he wanted a loan...?

    We still had to accept the loan offer though. Thats the thing. We could have rejected the loan offer and explained to Pritchard that it would have been a bad loan due to their style of play regardless of them being a PL club. I'm sure he would have understood.

    We did it for Winks and Amos, but at his age he may have just hoped for games

    I'm not sure he would have got much time here if he had stayed, but he certainly would have played more then he is now. Must say at 22 and having missed almost a season of football I'm a little bit concerned about his development but hopefully he will come back strong next season.

    Not in the matchday squad vs City. Meanwhile an academy prospect has been put on the bench to flesh it out, so at this stage they clearly have no intention of providing Pritchard with any first team opportunities.

    can we not terminate the loan? i know he can't play but there's no point him still being there.

    Come on Tony Pulis is probably giving him sound financial advice - how to skim as much money as possible from whichever club you are at.

    I dont think you can terminate loans when the transfer window is shut unless there is a major injury.

    Not fleshing out as Leko is very talented. Just providing one of their talents who will be there next year with experience over ours, which makes sense.

    What doesn't make sense is the loan. I could sort of understand it, but when Pulis said he wasn't really fit then it didn't make sense esp when he came on twice.

    That sub (Leko for Sessegnon) epitomises what a shit decision it was to send Pritchard to West Brom.

    Since A&C never posts in here ...


    i get the feeling this loan was a bargaining chip for Levy, if we return for Berahino ..£ goggles

    Spoke to a WBA supporting friend today and told him what Pritchard is like as a player. He was surprised having no idea what he could do and even more surprised that we would put a creative player in the hands of Pulis
