Jamie Paterson - Confirmed - Derby on Loan

Recommended Posts

Don't know how I feel about this - and as someone who tore into Paterson massively in the first half of last season, not sure why that is, but I did feel he was maturing towards the end of last season, in part because he was having to rescue a starting 11 that was often utterly flat and exhausted before his introduction.

For me he finished last season stronger (think Millwall away, where he put the team on his back and changed the game) and with a lot more composure and quality than Palmer (perhaps the competition served him well), and in our 0-5 and 1-3 the past two weeks, he's at least shown the same purpose off the bench.

End product is sketchy at times, but not always - he has about the best scoring record of our midfield and wider players, and is one of the few players in the squad who can run with the ball convincingly to stretch play and give others time to get up the field. I'm not even sure Palmer can do that without a drag back or two.

I suppose in the end analysis I trusted Paterson, limitations and all, more than I have ever trusted Palmer, so am now counting on Palmer to realise his potential otherwise as bit part at Pato could be, I think we'll miss his traditional cameo appearances to galvanise a Lee Johnson first 11 choice that is all too often flat.

Have 32Red upped their shirt sponsorship deal to cover Pato's wages?  :)

The Rooney 32Red deal was just a cover story I feel- for the cost and expense of their real superstar in waiting- their ex Forest City loanee. :thumbsup:

I’m a little worried. Not only does that remove a fair chunk of goals and assists from midfield, him going along with Marlon are two strong characters from the dressing room. Totally different dressing room now with all the new boys. I’m hoping for all our sakes they settle in quickly and hit the ground running. 

I think this might be part of the point. Sometimes a dressing room can become complacent and removing two senior players could be the grenade that awakes and refocuses the rest. He's a victim of the refresh, reboot, recharge.

He was consistently poor for quite some time. Just the odd flash here and there. But nowhere near enough.

I'm a suspicious person and I believe there is more to these leaving us, than we will ever know.
