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.

If they turned out to be a revelation theyÂd 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.

Galloway looks useful for us already and IÂd of thought heÂd of been more involved with first team next season.
But a loan move wouldnÂt 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!

He played in the dead rubber game against the Russian team, but that was virtually a reserve team so he shouldnÂt be judged on that performance.
Unless he has been injured he hasnÂt been used by Martinez, so It looks like the manager doesnÂt have the lad in his plans.

Let's face it, we have no money and canÂt attract top names to the club at the moment so weÂll 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 weÂve saved millions in transfer fees but you donÂt know unless you try.
Not all of them will be any good Â– McAleny, Lundstram and Long are even out of contract this summer, I think, so whatÂs 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?
IÂm sure youÂll see more passion this coming season than what we did last by doing that. IÂd rather see our own boys out there trying their best and playing for the badge than an unproven lower French league player who doesnÂt even know who Andy King was Â– RIP.

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

I guess this also means new faces in the first team squad.
17 Posted 28/05/2015 at 10:20:57
The others you mention are kids. You canÂt 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 Â– not in their teens.
We will have a few quid, itÂs not all doom and gloom.

I understand and see your point totally. IÂm just giving a different view of how to nurture these youngsters.
DonÂt you agree that itÂs great to see our homegrown players representing our club? IÂm not saying we thrust them all in and hope for the best in any way; IÂm 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 thereÂs 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 thatÂs a strike rate of 1/3(-ish). Chris Long played 10 times for Brentford scoring 4 goals (1/2Â½). Both much better than Kone for example. If both of those arenÂt going to be given a crack this season, then let them go because at their age now thereÂs no point in another loan for them.
Lundstram hasnÂt impressed on loan so IÂll 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. IÂm just saying it can be done so why not give it a go?
I do understand your point and IÂm not naÃ¯eve enough to think theyÂll be able to perform week-in & week-out. Our current crop of first team players canÂt even do that.
20 Posted 28/05/2015 at 12:49:42
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.
22 Posted 28/05/2015 at 18:01:02
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.
23 Posted 28/05/2015 at 18:08:16
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. ThereÂs a good reason why these lads get the summer off.
24 Posted 29/05/2015 at 21:54:38
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...

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, itÂs the way itÂs always been done. So . . . . . ."
27 Posted 01/06/2015 at 08:50:05
ItÂs 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 anyoneÂs interest.
