It's good to get the youngsters out to gain experience, but after
five years of hearing Jayden was going to be the next big thing I think it's clear he isn't and should be released.

If we can afford to have him on our books then we should. Presumably first team football, in the lower leagues, can only benefit him? I can see your reasoning about letting staff go but he is only 20 and at least we now know that he is not a Wayne Rooney.

Football can be very harsh and I would imagine that Jayden will now blossom at Cambridge?

His plight is the same as so many found in our 'reserves'. The club's level we play at, in the Championship, means that some of our junior squad will now always be playing 'catch-up?' The competition for places is fierce (Francis/Smith for example).

It has got very serious for the many players 'in development', the pressure is on the club to buy ready made shoe-ins regarding first team positions. Expect more to leave on loan and some on the periphery of the first team to become unsettled.

Tuesday night gives some the opportunity to remind their boss that they can play a bit! Competition is healthy so bring it on!

No, I think it's better to let him out on loan, let him get better with experience and if he isn't going to make it with us, sell him for a fee and get some money back on him. Releasing him means he's left in limbo and all the investment in him has gone to waste.
