Loans from one club, good or bad?

I wonder if loaning a few players from one club is a negative or positive.

Negative: If the players are all doing well and their parent club is not, they might all get recalled, leaving a massive hole in the team.

Positive: They have all played together through the Wolves ages groups and have a good understanding of each other.

I know there are more positives and negatives, and I'd like to hear other people's.

This is just something that's been floating through my mind after being linked with so many wolves players. Pro or con?

A club taking a few loans from another club faces a risk. The source club may tell the borrowing club it can only have 'Players A and B' (the good prospects) if they also take 'Player C' (who is less of a good prospect and who the source club would like to see off the wage bill).

If rumours become fact we could have three loanees from Wolves all good prospects on longish contracts but then will all three be good enough to get into what is a very good Wolves first team squad. which I think will get better.If all three are loaned for all season I’d go with that and at the end of the season we will have had a good look at them and viva-versa then who knows.

Giles and Dadashov, who is the third?

Don’t know how I missed that thread. Looks decent.
He does, if the detail is accurate. So, 3 loans from one club? Wolves did take Giles back halfway through a season against the wishes of the club he was loaned to (and then he subsequently played one 12 minute cameo role for us in half a season), so can see that we might ask for some assurances that they won’t remove 1/4 potentially of our first team in January.

On the other hand they sent him to us, and despite the fact we didn’t use him, they sent him back again — so maybe that’s a sign they like our system and setup to bring their players on and would be happy to agree to season long loans.

Don’t think you can second guess. If they’re of the right quality get them in, they can only be recalled in Jan can’t they? We might have to get someone in, but equally we might get three crazy offers for our players and sell up anyway.

My only worry would be does it prevent the players from integrating with the rest of the squad as much as they’be got a ready made friendship group.

Put the ‘friendship group’ in the cons then.

Is it possible to have a season long loan with no recall in January available, as that would negate the risk of them leaving.

Worked for blues when they had Bendtner Larsson and Muamba. Guess it depends on the quality.

Gathering my thoughts I think it comes down to how the loan is structured. If it is a loan for a whole season, without a call back in January, it's all good. Otherwise it possibly leaves a hole in the team come end of January, which at the tail end of the season you do not want. I guess there is an argument of Robins being able to recruit viable replacements, but that's a problem I'm sure he would rather not have mid season.
