But a player who’s not quite ready for one level, could be excellent at a lower one, and all parties can benefit?

I don’t understand your logic?

Yeah. Dropping down on loan means the boy is playing against men who aren’t quite as good, to get used to it and gain experience.

I’m sure you understand this concept really. Smile

So why should that clubs own players forego first team opportunities so another clubs youngsters can get a game?
