Think he’ll be back for good next year. I like the guy a lot and think he has a real future ont the PL level.

I think he might be good enough this year. But it would mean a forced sale on one of the other 4, A year at Millwall will do him good. And we'll get to see if he really is good enough.
We've been through it all together. And we've had our ups and downs

Pleased to see that I am a "silly c***" according to that Millwall fan :)

Nice wide ranging vocab.

Managed to raise his knuckles off the floor to type that bless him :)

Charlie be wearing a camel hair coat and complaining about people "taking liberties" in no time :lol:

Tbf though I think CC will be a popular figure down sarf.

He will get stuck in and give his all and they will really take to him imo.

Good move for him and a decent place (said begrudgingly) to get a taste of proper mens football

It's well funny. I remember going to the Old Den back in the 80's, I think it was in the Zenith cup. I met a few of their lads and to be fair, they were alright. Small numbers, but they can hold their own. Reading a bit further on, interesting comment made about Marsch.

Whose idea was to get shot of Charlie for a year?

Can't see our CB's scoring two goals between them before Christmas :shock:

Fifth in the pecking order, would he have got much football at Elland Road this season? Personally, I think he'd be pushing for a first team place if he'd been here this season.

Better than Llorente and Ayling.

Last two seasons, we've lost Cooper, Llorente & Koch for many games due to injuries with Ayling stepping in for them on far too many occasions imo! With Cooper already struggling, let's hope our international matchstick men & Pascal remain fit. We won't be able call on Ayling until at least the end of September, god forbid.

Well done Charlie.

Nice to see a proper corner being put in.

Great start to his loan.

A season in the Championship will be good for him but next season he has to be a first team regular, no more f**king about with loans.
I said it ages ago, he will play for England one day.

Not according to our management, they obviously think Charlie needs more league experience at a lower level. Strange how our U23's went to pieces when Cresswell was busy sitting on the subs bench last season.

This is the fella who hardly gave Antonio & Bowen a kick.

KP.
Struijk.
Greenwood
Joffy.
Shackleton
Clarke.
Jimmy.

All first team minutes after being brought into U21s as it is now.

Leeds youth policy is working.

Also Bate has first team minutes and Gray will do soon I expect.

Meslier too was recruited to shadow Casilla.

Crazy decision 64. I said so at the time and I wasn't the only one! What was the management thinking? :roll:
