Ed and also fellow posters, what do you think the future hold for Timothy Fosu Mensah? How will you rate him as a player and his latest loan deal with Fulham, they got relegated. he is more than quick and hold some simple passes. any future under Ole?

{Ed004's Note - Unfortunately I dont see him having a future here. He has never kicked on from his debut season}

The future for TFM will be at another club, he has had two loan spells which have been awful (key point to remember with the likes of garner and greenwood when people say send them on loan to gain experience) .

Things could have worked differently for him had LVG stayed on, these two effectively wasted years have surely set his development back and there have been attitude issues on his part so he is not totally blameless.

But no reason he can't take a step down and still have a successful career in europe.

I think it will be best if TFM went back to Holland to play for someone like Feyenoord to get his career back on track.

Might be unlikely but I could see TFM having some opportunities next year.

His best positions are defensive midfielder or center back which are the team's weaker areas.

Playing Right Back at Palace and Fulham isn't a fair measure. Fulham was a massive mistake and he shouldn't have been sent there.

Yeah Fulham was a bad choice. We shouldn't be loaning players to relegation favourites. We need to be better matching players to clubs and ensuring that players are going there to play in their best position not making up numbers in a position the loan club is weak in. The last successful loan was probably Lingard.

He looked great under LVG. Never kicked on - but then again, never been given the chance - guess he’ll be off.

I don't think he will get the game time he needs to kick on with us.

We have Lindelof, Smalling, Jones, Bailly, Rojo, Tuanzebe all ahead of him at CB. Plus we may well sign another CB this summer.

We have Young, Dalot and likely a new signing ahead of him at RB.

We have Matic, McTominay, Fred and possibly Garner ahead of him at CDM. Plus a possible new signing.

Going on loan to teams that haven't played him consistently and more often than not in his weakest position have held up his development.

I'm hoping a director of football would be able to sort out better loan deals for our young players at clubs where they will play and in their best position to aid their development. Although that doesn't sound like that is going to be part of the remit of whoever we hire.

All I would add is TFM looked a lot further along with a lot higher ceiling than McTom in his break through season.

I would say he is as good as Fred, Rojo, Jones, McTom and Young.

I think he'd be ahead of Garner based on physical basis too.

@Utd Road

Mate get your head out of the fire. Better than Fred? He's been one of maybe only 3 players to have played decent the last 10 games of the season. TFM couldn't get a look in at Fulham.

Fred has been awful. He played ok in Europe.

And as you say his best games coincided with our worst form in years.

Says it all.
