I'd be astonished if the lad has a future with the club. Hope he manages to enjoy a career as a professional player somewhere else, the sooner the better for him.

Yes, it's hard to see Lundstram getting a regular slot, but we'll never know what he's like unless he gets a shot. Maybe he should get a place on the bench ahead of Gibson & 20-25 mins on the pitch to show what he can do.

Another promising youngster who probably won't make it with us. A real shame because I had high hopes for him a couple of years ago. He has such a great range of passing in the middle of the park.

I've lost count at the amount of quality players we've let go on loan and pretty much discarded upon their return. Loans are important, I guess, but if rather we saw the likes of Green, Ledson, Grant, Garbutt, Browning etc getting 20 mins here and there for Everton.

The Championship and League One are not suitable for all players. I'd wager that some very good players would struggle in that environment.

Maybe I'm being too soft on the players though. If they don't cut the mustard, then maybe it's because they simply aren't good enough.

What a load of rambling nonsense this comment is! I'm sure I had a point to begin with...

Look what happened to Mustafi and Dier (Tottenham) – players we let go of... We don't know their true talents until they cut it at another place. Sort it out!

To be fair, Ross was no great shakes on his loans and he is now in the first team.

I suppose the difficulty is finding the right club with the right style of football.

Pretty difficult in the lower divisions where perhaps the football is more physical than technical.

Jon, Barkley was very highly regarded by the Leeds players and fans when he was on loan there and it was only that gobshite Warnock that ended up with Barkley returning when he did, much to the annoyance of the Leeds faithful. His spell at Sheffield Wednesday was also impressive.

These reports are from the Yorkshire press at that time,

Everton star Ross Barkley is the best player Leeds United's Stephen Warnock has played with at Elland Road, according to the full-back.

Barkley has built himself a reputation as one of Europe's rising stars during his time at Everton. And the 21-year-old has also made an impression on Warnock, with Barkley having spent a brief period on loan at Leeds from Everton.

"I'd say Ross Barkley for the small spell he spent at the club. Could see his ability from day one. Incredible player," he wrote on BeanBagSports when asked who his best ever Leeds team-mate was.
