    Almost seems like what you'd see in baseball when teams send guys on rehab assignments. Trying to get him into game shape for the stretch run? If so, maybe Torrent wants to use him but needs him to get game-sharp. We have an odd schedule in September -- two three-game weeks.

    I certainly hope so. He's put on some weight and looks very strong.

    I wasn't able to watch the game, so this is great.

    Looks like he remained very calm on the ball and challenged well. He didn't have many forward passes, and most of those that he did have were intercepted, or allowed the Revs to challenge right away. I think he'll learn that he needs to put a bit more pace on some of those as the speed and reaction time of these guys is higher than what he's used to.

    But based on this video, his best stuff was coming late. That long pass to Maxi that set up the Villa opportunity was beautiful, the switch of play to Sweat was nice, and he had another nice combination in there.

    Excited to watch this kid grow.

    Can we change the title of this thread to “Jimmy Sands [Midfielder], because as far as I’m concerned, that’s his only name now.

    Torrent said of Sands: “Jimmy played amazing, he played like someone with experience in MLS.

    “Maybe the next month he plays in another team, because I need Jimmy to play in every single game (week).”

    Could another loan be coming up for the talented teenager? Watch this space.

    can he even leave next month? I thought roster freeze was next week. If he is loaned out doesnt that mean we dont have him as option for october/ playoffs

    Another question to add to yours is whether a player do multiple loans and recalls to/from the same team?
