Nervous Wagstaff goes on loan

Scott Wagstaff has been put out to Bournemouth "on an initial month's loan." Let's hope the 18-year old learns from the experience and manages to get some games under his belt. He was the first of the new crop of youngsters coming through to look like he was feeling the heat of first team football after a very promising debut at the back end of last season. We shouldn't be surprised if he's the only one that this happens to during the season ahead.

The Yeovil game did for him as he looked lost in the first half and was substituted at half-time. Alan Pardew spoke after the game of one of the team looking nervous but disingenuously tried to say he wouldn't say who it was. I think it would have been better all-round to have said nothing and given the lad more direct support.
