    Wish him the best of luck. Loved his attitude. I think people will be surprised how far he gets.

    Nobody can question his attitude, work rate and commitment.
    I believe a major factor with his lack of goal scoring last year was confidence. The lad proved he can finish but the more the fans, manager and media started talking about it, the worse his decision making in the final 3rd became.
    I don’t think he is championship ready yet, but I think Barnsley are a decent team in which to continue his development.

    He might have missed a few chances for sure, but he found those positions through determination and intelligence.

    Even if he didn't finish himself, he'd pull the defence around and get them worrying; in itself that makes chances for others. I think there's every chance he'll do pretty well for Barnsley.

    Not sure I get the joy in seeing him 'fail' to be honest. Came to the club, worked his arse off, missed more than a few chances granted and was frustrating, but can't fault his desire which is usually what people moan about with loanees. I think and hope he'll be a decent coup for Barnsley.

    Really like Thomas, he’ll improve massively and will hopefully live up to his price tag.

    He has got to work on his game in the final third, finishing and assisting. Some of that will come with experience.

    Good player needs a better end product but I think that will come hope has a good year at Barnsley he can then come back here season after next when we will have swopped divisions with them.

    I'm intrigued to see how he performs. I personally think his move to the Championship is too soon but we'll see. Loved watching him at times and his work rate was second to none which was refreshing to see from such a young player. But equally, he frustrated the hell out of me.

    His final product is up there with one of the poorest I've seen at Coventry in recent times but it was his first season playing consistently at a decent level so I can't be too harsh on him. He's got a lot to work on but if he improves in this department he'll be a great player. Regardless, certainly hope the move works out for him though.

    Was a joy to watch last season I thought... once that end product gets better he will be a great asset to anyone... worked his bollocks off!

    Ryan Kent and Jacob Murphy did the same and got absolutely fucking mullered by some dicks on here saying they’d amount to nowt. Kent was a staple of the Rangers side last year and Murphy went for £10M a year after he left us....

    On decent pitches and with a bit of training on composure in front of goal Thomas will be a real asset for Barnsley

    Have a day off SBD, no fucker would connect a headline stating hundreds of thousands / millions of pounds in transfer fees with Kwame Thomas.

    Thomas battled well for us his passing and finishing were pretty woeful but lets hope he puts in a good word for Chaplin and Baka
