I know the guy is only 19-years-old but once again I say Matty Ritchie is a fantastic talent so I really do hope that we keep him at Fratton this season, and use him. I am not saying we have to play him in every game but lets keep him in and around the 1st team squad and give him a chance.
Of course there are benefits to loaning Ritchie out again, but for me he has served this apprenticeship last season with Dagenham.
My main concern, should he go out on loan again, then becomes one of us buying in players in the meantime and then he gets 'pushing down the order' and then forgotten... We then end up with some overpaid mercenary who does not give one, we end up losing a local lad who would kill to wear the shirt - he then goes onto big things and we lose out. The chances are this mercenary then decides to jump ship!
One again though I must say I have been very impressed the attitude shown by Ritchie in what he has told The News today, he again shows great respect and maturity saying that he would be happy to go out on loan again this season if he had to.
But I say why send him out on loan somewhere else for his talent to be utilised? Keep him and play him! I really do think that this kid could light up Fratton this season if given a chance and become a household name, not only in Pompey but throughout the country...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
