Alaves are chasing shadows but it's way to early to pass judgement on this loan yet.

I don't doubt staying in the under 23's would have been better for him

Pellistri showed good pace and ball control to beat Monreal to the ball from a long ball over the top and retain possession for Alaves. He then gets on the ball again just outside the box and drives towards goal playing a one two with his team mate but the return pass is cut out. Pellistri looking lively in the last few minutes.

Full-time 4-0 and Pellistri played over 30 minutes. Hardly got a touch in the first 25 minutes with Alaves mostly going down their left flank. But in the last 5 minutes he got on the ball and looked lively and tried driving the team forward. Good close control and dribbling on display in the closing minutes and I hope he's given a start in the next game.

Pellistri chose to go to Alaves, the club didn't force him to go there over the other interested teams. But people shouldn't jump to conclusions just yet because this might end up being a good loan for him. Pellistri showed more in the last 5 minutes than the rest of the Alaves players in attack did in the last 30 minutes, so hopefully that will put him into contention to start the next game.

You have to question the idea of letting players pick their loan destinations. Januzaj to Dortmund another questionable one.

No doubt he would have gotten way more minutes so far in the Belgian league albeit at a lower level. Not a wasted loan just yet as he could still turn it around but early signs aren't great.

Hope, We Lose
It hasnt been a good start thats for sure, but this will be a mental check for him that could help him grow. Going to a lower team and not playing right away gives him a gut test that he wouldnt otherwise have and it'll be good to see if he's professional and determined enough to make the most of his time there. Even if he does make it here he wont just have highs in his career, he'll have lows too and he'll have to come back from them. Lingard is an example of a player that has struggled to play well and come back from poor performances and periods of form

1) its early days
2) we can and do advise them which clubs we think are best fits
3) players aren't slaves to be forced where we want them

1. I literally mentioned it's early and he can still turn it around
2. Hence why I mentioned the Belgian league as the club wanted him to go to Club Brugge
3. Hadn't thought of it this way before, thank you
