Been reading that new signing? Ian Poveda. He did not take kindly to being demoted to City's U23s. Good luck to him at Thorpe Arch.

Just read the same thing and thought the same thing as you. Another strange scenario we have fot ourselves into.

12 Jan 2020 17:58:50
Demoted? He only played one first team game and that wasn’t his debut.

Martyn the point trying to be made is players could get turned off coming here if what awaits a premiership player is the odd 10 minutes slot or else playing with the kids, regardless of Ian's playing stats he was a Manchester City player so by extension you'd imagine his ability should not be in question before the step up to 1st team.

Do we really need another winger? It likely he will sit on the bench as Harrison and Pablo won't be dropped by Bielsa. An attacking or centre midfielder would be more us (and a striker of course)

Harrison, Pablo, Costa and one or two U 23s are all in contention for two slots. He just joins the queue.

You'd have thought he'd be ahead of the U23s, which is unfortunate in some ways, but if he can play anything up to the standard he appears to be capable of, he would seem to more likely to affect the game than they would currently.

Also consider the psychological effect on the opposition. Saturday's substitution of Stevens for Costa can only have emboldened the Wendies to step things up, having seen off Costa and with little fear that Stevens could hurt them - and we saw the result of that. Poveda coming on instead would likely have given them rather more pause for thought, having more experience and at a higher level.

If you only play one first team game how can that not be your debut?
