If they do get promoted, it will be tempting to let him go back there on loan next season.

I guess it depends on where we stand in terms of bringing in an experienced backup keeper, and if we've got European football again. No point bringing him back here if he's never going to get to play. Would be a sensible progression for him, Lg1 to Championship and then back to us for Prem.

5 in 5 for Louie Barry for Stockport County

My mate the MK fan sent me a text saying "he never played like that for us!"

it's not just the number of goals he's scoring but the quality of the finishes, too.

I thought that was about Sinisalo for a second there, was thinking ‘fuck me he MUST be good’.

No idea what the quality of teams are like in League 1 but they've kept a lot of clean sheets, and I think their only loss was last week when he was on international duty.

I think when Southampton spent a lot of millions on Bazunu he'd only played a season and a half in League One, so there's definitely precedent.

Whether that precedent can be seen as making a success of it or not...

It's similar for Trafford who had 18months with Bolton before becoming a premier league number 1.

Sinisalo had a very good spell with Ayr where he got 7 clean sheets in 22 as an 18/19 year old before having a tough time at Burton last year but I think there's a lot of context around that which suggests their defence was a bit fucking shit.

I suppose it will all depend on how good he is with the ball at his feet...

I cant say that I know too much about that aspect of his game.

Good point, I had it in my head that he was in the Championship last season, but you're right.

Don’t forget, Trafford also won the U21 tournament. That wouldn’t have raised his profile a fair bit and possibly more than the performances at Bolton.

Especially his "heroic" performances at that u21 tournament.

I don't think they conceded a goal all tournament & he saved a pen late in the final to win the whole tournament.

Boosted his profile a lot...

Was the deal with Burnley not already agreed before the U21s though?

It was announced afterwards, no idea when the deal was negotiated.
