View Full Version : I see St Mirren & Newcastle

have a tie up between themselves that allows Newcastle to send young players up on loan.

Is this something we're looking at, or do people feel this is a wasted route due to the number of youngsters we have coming through ?

I would like to see it happen.We have our own good youngsters but would give us a bit extra

I think it laziness on the part of St Mirren. Hit or miss with players, I reckon.

When was the last time players were scouted on a regular basis then an approach made to bring them in on trial? United have been guilty of this in the past by going on past performances and not the here and now.

I believe we have a number of youths that train with Manchester United on a regular basis, therefore I'm assuming we have some sort of dialog with these big English clubs.

How that evolves into getting players on loan I have no idea, but it has to be structured right to still allow our own fringe players/youths game time
