Defensive duo set for loan experience next season

27/05/2015  Comments (25)  jump
Tyias Browning and Brendan Galloway are likely to be handed the chance of more regular first-team action by being farmed out on loan for time by Roberto Martinez.

The promising Under-21 pair have both tasted life at senior level at Everton by making accomplished debuts this season and Martinez sees temporary loan moves as the next natural step in their development.

Browning played a couple of times in the Premier League earlier in the season, most notably at Anfield against Liverpool in the Blues 1-1 draw, while Galloway has made the step up in the last two games against West Ham and Tottenham.

The Liverpool Echo suggest that Brentford and Bolton Wanderers are possible destinations for the duo next season. The club have sent a number of Academy graduates to Brentford in recent seasons, with Chris Long the most recent loanee to turn out of the Bees.

ThereÂ’s probably not much chance of it due to their lack of experience but I would prefer to loan them to a Premier League club if some managerÂ’s have been keeping an eye on them and rate them highly enough to give them opportunities, maybe a newly-promoted team.

If they turned out to be a revelation theyÂ’d make it into the team the following year a lot quicker and the manager would know for sure if he needed replacements in that area.

ThatÂ’s good news because it means with Garbutt going that we have no coverage except Hibbo

I think I might become a Brentford supporter, although their chairman is as clueless as our bugger !

Galloway going out on loan surprises me but I agree that Browning should, he needs to get out and get the games and improve.

Galloway looks useful for us already and IÂ’d of thought heÂ’d of been more involved with first team next season.

But a loan move wouldnÂ’t do him any harm at all. MK Dons would be a good move for him, a team and manager he knows, there now in the championship and they try and play out from the back and play decent football, would be a great learning experience for him imo!

I would like Galloway & Browning to get first team experience at EFC, as weÂ’re not blessed with full back cover, maybe short loans to other Premier League teams!

Erm... how small is our squad going to get! Distin, Alcaraz and Garbutt are departing – that leaves us with barely enough subs

It is just an Echo story with no substance behind it chaps. Galloway will be needed from the start as will Browning as cover at full back.

Surely they should have been out on loan this season as we badly need them ready for next season? Galloway will certainly be getting game time next season as reserve CB/LB.

Tyias Browning keeps getting mentioned by various people on different threads but, apart from 20 minutes at Anfield when he played well and another 20 minutes when he looked very nervous I donÂ’t think the lad has featured for Everton.

He played in the dead rubber game against the Russian team, but that was virtually a reserve team so he shouldnÂ’t be judged on that performance.

Unless he has been injured he hasnÂ’t been used by Martinez, so It looks like the manager doesnÂ’t have the lad in his plans.

Galloway should go nowhere except into the first team squad as cover for our already injury-prone defenders. It would be a poor move by our already poor manager if he allowed him to go on loan when he has proved he can do a job for us if called upon.

Why would the Echo lie about this article. So this is the kind of rubbish we’re going to have to endure all summer? Well, it’s winter here in the land down under.

Why? TheyÂ’re both at a great age to be pushing for first team football at our club. Especially with the lack of funds and numbers we have. Browning, Galloway, Kenny, Ledson, Lundstram, Dowell, Long and McAleny should be given an opportunity this season in my eyes. Probably going to cause people to say that theyÂ’re not good enough or we should be looking at bringing players in but we have potential already at the club and this season would be the perfect opportunity to see what they can do.

Let's face it, we have no money and canÂ’t attract top names to the club at the moment so weÂ’ll be looking at overseas cheap, unproven imports and loans like Atsu (waste of time and money) so why not give these boys a chance? Seriously, given this past season's failures what have we got to lose? We finished below Swansea, Stoke and Palace, for fuck's sake!

Yes, we have to bring in a few but to boost numbers our own academy is where we should be looking. Who knows, if just one or two of them makes it then weÂ’ve saved millions in transfer fees but you donÂ’t know unless you try.

Not all of them will be any good – McAleny, Lundstram and Long are even out of contract this summer, I think, so what’s the harm in giving them a one-year deal with the promise of an opportunity to show what they can do throughout the season and earn another contract at the end of it?

I’m sure you’ll see more passion this coming season than what we did last by doing that. I’d rather see our own boys out there trying their best and playing for the badge than an unproven lower French league player who doesn’t even know who Andy King was – RIP.

Browning seems to have regressed. He was involved earlier in the season and then disappeared. A loan move could be good for him but most likely he will be released after next season (when his contract expires).

I think this is good long-term planning and usually what the Â’bigÂ’ clubs do - i.e. farming out their promising youngsters on loan to Â’lesserÂ’ clubs. I am thinking Lukaku, Deulofeu, Atsu.

Browning, Galloway, Garbutt (if he signs for us), McAleny, Ledson among the potential first-teamers should go on loan.

Our first-team squad would then look something like this:

GK: Howard, Robles
LB: Baines, Oviedo
RB: Coleman, Hibbert
CB: Jagielka, Stones, New 1 (Besic & Hibbert as back-up)
Wingers: New 2, Pienaar, McGeady, Mirallas
Central MF: Barkley, Barry, Besic, McCarthy, Osman, New 3
Forwards: Lukaku, Kone, Naismith, Long, New 4

That is a squad of 24; ideally it should have been 3-4 more than this but considering there is no Europe this year, we should be okay. The key of course is to find the right 4-5 new players who can come in and make an impact straight away. My wish list (based on Sam HoareÂ’s wish-list on another thread): Van Dijk, Deulofeu, Nolito, Hernandez.

The starting XI for the season opener:

Coleman Jagielka Stones Baines
Deulofeu Barkley McCarthy Nolito
Hernandez Lukaku

Subs: Howard, Van Dijk, Oviedo, Besic, Mirallas, Pienaar, Kone.

Surprised a bit about Galloway, but possibly a good call in the long term. He will learn more playing first team football than warming our bench.

I guess this also means new faces in the first team squad.

Lundstram didnÂ’t make it at Blackpool. McAleny played 7 games for Cardiff. These lads ainÂ’t going to make it at Premier League level Darren.

The others you mention are kids. You canÂ’t just throw them in to the most competitive league and expect them all to even hold their own, never mind perform to any sort of level.

How many kids do you see in the league regularly? Not many. You have got to accept there is a reason for that. They need loan spells and then breaking in gently, probably around the age of 20-21 – not in their teens.

We will have a few quid, itÂ’s not all doom and gloom.

That is one attacking line-up, Ajay. I donÂ’t think that Baines, Coleman or McCarthy would necessarily agree...

Mark (#17)

I understand and see your point totally. IÂ’m just giving a different view of how to nurture these youngsters.

DonÂ’t you agree that itÂ’s great to see our homegrown players representing our club? IÂ’m not saying we thrust them all in and hope for the best in any way; IÂ’m talking about substitute appearances, the odd start and cup games for a couple at a time, and cover when injuries occur. Just being around the first team will make them better players.

Browning, Galloway and Garbutt are the cream of the current crop and are all defenders at the right age so thereÂ’s no doubt we all want to see them in and around the first team and not out on loan.

McAleny played 7 times for Cardiff scoring 2 goals so that’s a strike rate of 1/3(-ish). Chris Long played 10 times for Brentford scoring 4 goals (1/2½). Both much better than Kone for example. If both of those aren’t going to be given a crack this season, then let them go because at their age now there’s no point in another loan for them.

Lundstram hasnÂ’t impressed on loan so IÂ’ll give you that one.

Ledson, Kenny and Dowell are all coming on 18 and while that is young it has been done successfully by clubs the past few seasons.
Januzaj broke in to the Man Utd team at 18, Luke Shaw, Callum Chambers and Ward-Prowse played a whole season for Southampton at that age. Sterling and our very own Barkley and Stones were all 18 when they started in their respective clubs first team. IÂ’m just saying it can be done so why not give it a go?

I do understand your point and I’m not naïeve enough to think they’ll be able to perform week-in & week-out. Our current crop of first team players can’t even do that.

Proper regular competitive football is good for the youngsters however they can get it.

Obviously with Stones, Garbutt and Barkley they should be getting that in our first team now.

Given that Browning is from our youth team, it makes sense that he gets a season elsewhere - a la Coleman.

Galloway was already in the MK Dons first team however, so I hope he goes out to a higher level or plays for us this season.

I guess pre-season will give us a clearer idea.

What always amazes me is that football is a summer sport in Scandinavia and Finland.

Level has to be at least Div 1/Championship for the better sides (given the performances in European competitions). So why are the youngsters who have had minimal games not sent to Sweden/Norway for 3-4 months to get experience of playing in a better quality league. Will also get them used to another culture and that will also test out their mental and personal development.

Jim Jennings

Because after a full season of training and playing, the last thing any young player needs while still physically developing is to go and run their bollocks off in Norway for three months before another full season back in England. ThereÂ’s a good reason why these lads get the summer off.

Dave @ 10,

I thought Browning played very well against Krasnodar, even though he does not look a natural RB. If the two lads are being loaned out, then we will be making signings at CB. It would have worried me more had we been keeping them, as Jags and Stones need competition and cover.

Moreover, we need a different CB to what we have. A player who can dominate aerially in both boxes. Jags and Stones do struggle when faced with a Benteke or a Drogba. Distin, on the other hand...

Hopefully this means a new contract to Garbutt, so we send Galloway out on loan.

Phil (22) - ItÂ’s a result of antique thinking. Strange in this day and age of instant communication and easy travel.

I agree with your logic. Youngsters, while BANKING WAGES, are on vacation instead of being sent out to train and play in active leagues.

"Well, itÂ’s the way itÂ’s always been done. So . . . . . ."

Antique thinking.

Jim Jennings
27 Posted 01/06/2015 at 08:50:05
No James (26), itÂ’s not because of that. ItÂ’s really not.

ItÂ’s pretty simple. Playing kids all year round is going to damage them physically. They may be BANKING WAGES but they would also be BANKING WAGES when crocked and burnt out at 22 or 23.

They are professional athletes and their bodies are assets of the club (that sounds more creepy than it should) so playing them til breaking point is not in anyoneÂ’s interest.
