I have to say I'm not happy with de-laet being loaned out.
Our defence is leaking goals yet we get rid of our best player in pre-season.
Elfick did nothing wrong as well,
He is not the best c/ back we have had but he is a proper c/ back and he was not treated fairly in my opinion,
Now adomha is having issues with Bruce by all accounts and he could be turned out as well Christmas.
I don't think Bruce is doing himself any favours over these players.

from the outside it may seem strange allowing de laet to go on loan, but just to put a different spin on it - we currently have 3 right backs in hutton, bree and elmo, so losing the 4th isn't an issue. we have an issue in the middle of defence and there are appears to be at least 3 immediate options available to us, terry, Huth and collins and I can't help wondering why at least one of them isn't already on the books and I don't believe that is down to the manager as why would he not want to?
the dreaded FFP hasn't completely gone away because we have new owners and maybe bruce has been told he has to cut his cloth accordingly - release wages, to re-use on incoming players. it may be an accountancy issue that bringing one of the afore mentioned players in on a short term deal is just cash going out of the business as neither of the players will have an asset value.
if the above theory is close - then why de laet - well maybe because there isn't any concrete interest in anybody else, so in order to get a CB in asap he's taken the first offer for a player that's come in. maybe if mcshortface and richards had walked away we wouldn't need to as that's a hefty wage bill for nothing.
anyway - just a thought, not based on anything my brother heard walking the dog with someone high up at VP who heard from a player having his haircut by the guy of the one show etc etc etc.

Deleat going frees up some funds because of ffp plus he only looked good against Poo teams in pre season.

But Bruce says alm0,bree and Hutton are the 3 rightbacks,
But look who is our current L/ back Hutton?
I understand the problems with shipping out players to help with ffp.
But it seems we are letting go the players who would help us in defensive area's
It's all very strange for me.

i wouldn't say he's letting go specifically an area - it's just who the offer has come in for - bruce didn't choose for it to be de laet.

I think people also need to realise that these players were signed by RDM and not Bruce so maybe he just doesn't rate them. They are both on good money and as people have said above getting them off the wage bill for FFP reasons is a sensible choice if he has no intention of playing them. He does however need to bring in defensive reinforcements as soon as possible and the fact that nobody has come in over international break indicates to me that he is holding out for JT. Signing any of the other free agents available would probably scupper this as they probably cannot afford anyone else on top.

We still need cover an delat could of played at cb if we needed him.
