That's how I feel. At some point there has to be a demonstrable example of this actually leading to a concerted chance with the first team. I also don't think it's fair for ANY of these lads to be expected to fully complete their development during these loans. Almost none of them will come back at a guaranteed starter level. It ain't possible given their age and the lower levels theyre palying at. Say they're going out at 5/10, and a usual City player is 8 or 9/10. They shouldn't have to somehow play at a 6/10 level and come back as an 8 or 9 to get a chance. That's an unfair and unrealistic expectation. If they come back as a 6.5/7 then we should be then willing to take a chance on letting them get that extra 10% here at the club.
