    Fulham needs to concede and play their kids already. They are 16 points down with 6 games to play. There's not a snowball's chance in hell they make that up. Are only hurting their chances of a quick bounceback to the EPL and solid transfer fees/loan opportunities.

    De La Torre would benefit from this strategy and get 6 games to make his mark. One would think he'd be on the list considering he featured during Cup play. Should get a real chance to show his stuff at the top level. Surely he'd be a focal point in the Championship then.

    He hasn't even played for the reserves since December. I doubt Fulham will suddenly start playing him in the EPL.

    I take that as meaning the opposite. That is unless he's injured, and it hasn't been well publicized. He's a squad player, permanently up with the 1st team, after his strong Cup performances. He started his last u23 match and it wasn't a bad result. They were reportedly dead-set on loaning him out in the transfer window. Then they didn't pull the trigger. That indicates to me he was part of the all hands on deck approach because the Titanic was sinking. Stashed him in case there was attrition.

    Could be, but it reminds me a bit of the Lletget situation at AV. Like Lletget, De La Torre is a technical player with some athletic shortcomings. Too good for reserves, but not convincing the coach to actually play him.

    FYP...been a West Ham follower since around those days. A few senior guys in the squad at that time asked in the media why Lleget wasn't getting any time, or at least intimated as such. Has anyone come out for DLT in the same way? Just curious
