Personally I think a top end League 1 loan is better than most Championship loans.

Just my opinion but the level actually isn't too bad there at the top.
I'd even go as far as League two being acceptable.
For me, it's about playing against men and learning the physical side of the game.
Even a unit like CCV struggled against Wycombe for us in the cup.
Roles going to Cambridge is a great example where he's more than good enough technically but will need to learn to be strong enough.
And, if successful, he can be moved on to a higher level knowing he can handle himself.

It’s time to play the youth. They aren’t technically as good as the senior players but they will give their all and run and press. That would also mean that the senior players will get a kick on their ass and won’t feel safe to start every game

Parrott should be on the bench every game, when it’s 25-15 minutes left just bring him on and let him press like a crazy dog
Skipp should play ahead of Wanyama & Skipp
KWP (not youth) should start most games at RB until we buy a new one

I know this won’t happen but it should, it has worked before with Mason, Bentaleb, Kane etc

Playing a couple of youngsters didn't do Brighton any harm today.
