Fanimo remains out in Tranmere cold


Matthias-FanimoHammers loanee Matthias Fanimo was an unused sub for a third consecutive game on Saturday as Tranmere lost to Exeter.

And despite having the speedy youngster on board it begins to look as though he may return to the Boleyn without a game.

With only two matches remaining between now and the end of his initial loan period, the player and the club must bewondering why manager Rob Edwards wanted him in the first place.

The player has made no comment although a red cross emoticon appeared on his twitter page on Saturday morning.

According to one Tranmere insider Rob Edwards claimed that Fanimo was carrying a slight hamstring injury when questioned about his absence this morning.

But he added: that didn’t stack up adding. ” Why name him on the bench then?” and added “He’s made a rapid recovery as he’s playing for the reserves against Morecambe as we speak”

    I always find it a little hard to understand why our good youngsters fail to get a run in lower league sides, but I guess the pressure for results is throughout the league & not just the premiership where clubs are unwilling to gamble on an inexperienced young player.

    I also think that instead of letting our youngsters develop outside of the spotlight and pressure, many supporters think that they’re good enough to get game time & regularly criticise the manager for not playing them.

    I started casting my mind back a little to recent times with players like Montano (great pre-season… at the time), Stanislas and Rob Hall (remember him) plus many others, which goes to prove if they’re good enough, the manager will play them…… so I guess they weren’t.

    I truly hope that like Moncur, Fanimo is able to find a club and get regular competitive football for his development towards our benefit.
