Jake Hyde Joins on Season Long Loan - and immediately gets injured


May 19, 2008
Im glad all this has been put to bed tbh. I thought for once we were having a good solid preseason with all the players bedding in, then injuries, missing out on kelly, embargo, dalby move and hyde speculation.

Seems a very good bit of business to me, time will tell but it feels like we are a commanding CB away from having a real crack this season.

"I think we’ve done ever so well to get him and he was desperate to come to the club. When we spoke, he couldn’t speak enough about how much he wanted to be here."
I think this, and some other 'quotes' have been put together to answer certain rumours about him not wanting to come and fears that he's been kind of forced on us rather than being a player from the infamous whiteboard.

This one as well... "... it’s always been a club I’ve been looking at from a far."
Not far enough he may have thought until yesterday.

Smart move by the club, we needed a body, when fit hes decent at this level and we would all been happy had Brown signed him when he tried last year.

Loan means no long term commitment at this stage and we aren't paying all his wage.Well done negotiators

My guess is that Hyde was expected to be permanent and the loan was an elegant way of dealing with the wages issue. I suspect the extra one will be ‘proper’ loan. Although as usual I wait for @BoyWonder2 to provide the lowdown.
