If our better U23s (Ramsey, Archer and Bridge) are not going to get a look-in at the top level then personally I would prefer them to be loaned out as Vassilev has been to Burton Albion. It will give them a chance to show what they are capable of. It worked pretty well for Grealish at Notts County!

Keep him for the Stoke game then loan him, at least if we sign another midfielder. He seems to have improved at Doncaster and would likely develop more playing 20-30 games in the Championship, or at least upper League One, then the odd 15-20 minutes for Villa.

Maybe even loan him until the end of December and (if he goes to a team below the Championship) tell them he can't play in the FA Cup so we can give him a game or two in January before making up our minds if he should be loaned out again.

I'd keep him around, he has something to offer in the first team. Bridge and Archer would benefit from loans though.

Going to be a star is Jacob!
Tell you what, Iíve seen enough promising kids play and look like deer in headlights.
This lad looks very comfortable. Very impressed so far, and he should definitely be on the bench for the Fulham game.
Because of total brilliance of Traore's finish the boy has not had enough praise about that wonderful floated pass. Looks like he could be.....x

This guy is going to be a player. So comfortable receiving the ball in tight areas. The one two he played with Jack was great and Jack clearly trusts him to play the ball back to him.

Just needs to strengthen up abit but that will come, hopefully another start in the League Cup and continues to get minutes in the League.

I think a lot depends on what happens with Loftus-Cheek or any other targets. If we get someone, he's got to go on loan. It would be a waste for him to just be on the bench or not in the 18.

I think he's at the level now where we keep him whoever we bring in this season. He needs to be on the bench every game, and be a rotational player. Getting 20-30 minutes for us, training and playing under Smith in this system, I feel would be far more valuable for him than being kicked up in the air in the Championship.

The confidence and calmness on the ball is the thing that really marks him out as a player with real quality. There's an intangible way that he moves with the ball, and the way the rest of the established first teamers trust him with it, that is reminiscent of the way the seniors trusted Grealish, and enough to convince me that he has something to offer to us this season.

The dressing room sounds like a really positive place to be right now, great to hear that Jacob was given a round of applause by the team after the game for playing in his first Premier League game.

That's really good, them giving him a round of applause. Nothing but good vibes from our dressing room at the moment.

I agree. Ramsey's good enough to be challenging for our first team, even with an extra midfielder coming in. At this stage I'd be encouraging him to get himself firmly established as a first team player.

I'd keep him here this season. He's on the up confidence wise in familiar surroundings and a hard season in the championship or lower could set him back. Next summer would be the time to loan him.  He's only 19 - little steps.

Yep. Love this! Couldn't be further from where we were as a club not all that long ago!

He looks very promising but think he still needs to bulk up.

We need to learn our lesson from the mistake we've made in recent years where we keep hold of a player too long and in doing so we forsake their development. 

If he can genuinely make a place in the team his own, then keep him. If he's only going to be getting the odd few minutes here and there, his development will benefit much more from playing regular first team football somewhere. Then, in that case, we can make him a regular for us next season when he's 20, filled out more and used to regular senior football.

Iím hoping for this too. If we sign this fabled No8 then he should be sent to an upper half Champ team who like to play football. Itíll be better for his development than sat on our subs bench.
