Snowflake RoyalStrandedHound Real shame for Ballard. Kid certainly has something about him and I liked his attitude- always positive, worked hard etc. hopefully a simple enough injury and he’s young enough to bounce back quickly
From our pov I do think a more experienced striker who could genuinely step in for Smith is a better option. Someone quite physical. Still plenty of free agents about
Need to not be under embargo for 5 mins for that to happen. Also will depend on if we are on the hook for Ballard's wages and for how long. Imagine there is an automatic break in case of bad injury.
Dear parent club
Do you want to:
A) recall Ballard, cancel our wage obligation and treat his injury yourself, or
B) We'll keep paying his wages, and ask our medical team to treat his injury.
Anyone sane is picking A so we don’t accidentally kill or cripple him
