    Not sure it will be a whole 20 minutes. The loan is only a month.

    Mason needs regular football at a competitive level, this will give him it. With Hallam not going to start is he.

    Harsh! He can’t help being injured.

    Still doesn’t change the fact he’s always injured though, does it ?

    Pity Hallam hasn’t gone for good, it’s a shame for the lad but enough is enough, he will never be fit enough on a regular basis to be any sort of asset to us as a player.

    Both need to be out playing games. If they manage to stay fit they will be a hell of an asset at that level for Ilkeston

    I’d offer Hallam a contract.
    There. That made you pay attention!

    Pay him fairly generously on a game to game basis with a half fee if he makes the bench and full if he plays or comes on as a sub.
    What we cannot do is subsidise his injuries any longer.

    May seem unfair to some but when you consider the money he’s already had from the club …
    There really is a player in there, so if the injury situation is remedied club would have the option of two independent, back to back half season contracts.

    From what little I know, this ought not to go against the rules. Gives both the club and Hallam a chance of a decent future together.

    There certainly have been past deals brokered for playing on a match by match basis.
    How bad would we feel if the injuries are temporary and some other club were to get the best of the lad?

    My Blades neighbours rated him incredibly highly – couldn’t believe he’d come to us and still ask about him four years on.

    ” if the injuries are temporary?”

    You’ve answered your own question les. – “four years” Based on pounds paid per minute played he must be close to premiership wages. I feel sorry for the lad but he’s a luxury we just can’t afford.

    But only paying him on a ‘matches played’ basis, Cass, is surely the best of both worlds for the club and for him. No pay if not featuring. Still have the option if he comes good. What’s to be lost?

    Seems like the new manager doesn’t rate O’Malley which is a bit unfortunate.

    There’s a player there but he’s had a poor season. Probably 3rd choice left back at the minute.

    Thing is Cliff, is he a left back, seriously? He’s never shown any real defensive quality IMO, going forward, putting in a decent cross, yeah he shows promise but he’s never good enough defensively surely?

    I’ve only seen him as Left back and briefly as CDM. Not sure where else he can play as he doesn’t seem to have the pace or the skill to play higher up? A decent cross is all well and good but a competent right back when you have neither of these attributes won’t let you deliver crosses.

    When we got relegated last year he was one of the few players I thought an EFL might snap up as he didn’t look out of place. This year, however, he just seems to have lost his way and been at fault for a number of goals.

    In all honesty, he is one of number of players like Rowe, Hallam, Taft whom have only ever been used to losing whilst here. A new opportunity is probably best for all parties.

    Not sure about O’Malley, from what I’ve seen his defending is a real problem for the side. Lovely set pieces are fine but there’s a reason managers don’t rely on him.

    The Mason-Taft left-sided defensive partnership is reason number one for me why we aren’t bottom 8 rather than bottom 2.
    (Without an experienced GK being in place explains several more places.)
    Those two issues remedied – we could easily have been between 12th and 14th AND we’d probably have been able to persuade Lavery to stay.
    Sigh.

    This excerpt from the Ilkeston OWS doesn’t look good for them either:-

    “With a side featuring three young debutants and with some key players missing, the task looked a tough one from the start and that was before the visitors took an early two-goal lead.”

    I’ve said for years he’s a left winger playing LB. Good energy, Good pace and has good delivery into the box and yet his marking is slack and positionally at times he’s all over the place.

    I honestly can’t think why coaching staff /management haven’t spotted this and played him further up.

    How many of us have said over the years that is delivery into the box is spot on, he likes to get forward but can’t really defend ?

    As I said above, it’s mystery why nobody within the club haven’t see what a majority of us have.

    Calm down Burny, decent delivery doesn’t make him a good winger, he’s a full back that’s not very good at defending.

    I never said it did make him a good winger. All I said was that his attributes “what he’s good at” leans more towards playing further up. I have never and will never pass him off as the next Peter Beagrie.

    He’ll probably play every game for them next season and remain injury free, hope so and I also wish him the very best of luck, he could certainly do with some 🤞

    From the Derbyshire Times:-
    “Hallam, also 24, scored twice in six appearances for the Robins last season having signed on loan in February. He made a strong impression on Ilkeston fans in his short spell with the club, which was ultimately ended by injury, but he’ll be a key addition to Ward’s squad for the new campaign.”

    Six games and then……… Got to feel sorry for the lad.

    Cassidy, sheff utd released him for the same reason. Hallam when he was at Sheff Utd as a youngsters was forever picking up injuries so they let him go.

    Shame really because there’s definitely talent there. Pity he only manages 5 or 6 games before breaking down. To be fair that’s quite reasonable for him, he only managed 2 or 3 here before he kept breaking down.
