Another dumb decision by Bruce. Surely better than Hutton now?Performed well in pre-season, but Bruce rushed him out on loan. Loaning out Ritchie, Steer, Gardner and Elphick were crazy decisions!

Gutted we've lost a fourth choice right back despite some folks spending all summer moaning about the amount we have.

It's RDL people. RITCHIE DE LAET

If getting him off the wage bill helps us bring in a centre back it's a stroke of genius. As with Elphick. Two players 99% on here would've considered bench fodder at best less than two weeks ago.

Turned out to be the biggest if in history. And about as far from genius as we'll see. Still, don't look back in anger.

always a priority for a RB

luckily, we have one of our own (Elmo) that's scored the same and assisted four and even he's behind bloody Hutton

To be fair, we all said we hadn't got enough right backs when we let him go

RDL does not play in one position thou does he .. So quite handy to have ..And Leicester fans I know said he was their best player while in the championship

very odd decision by SB

We have Elmo
We have Hutton
We have Bree
We even have Axel

On what bloody planet was letting RDL go out on loan a bad idea ... seriously ???

We could've easily sent another one (or just not resigned Hutton) out as well.

First folks were taking the piss about how many right backs we had now some are moaning we offloaded one of em.

Gold.

Based on everything we saw in preseason he sent the best of the bunch out on loan. Thatís why Bruce is buffoon.

I never thought he let us down in the games he played for us and agree he can at least play several  positions, not sure if one of those is centre half though ?
