Looks like Monlouis is back and available for selection (if he's wanted)
I hope that two months of regular starts will have boosted his confidence. He never looked poor for us, he just never made much of an impact. A lot of talented young players these days reach their early twenties without ever playing regular senior football. It's all youth and development teams, loan spells at lower league clubs where it's not always easy to make an instant impression, followed by one year contracts at a smaller club and more loan spells below that level. It seems like a bit of a conundrum trying to coax these players to fulfil their potential before they slip through the net altogether.

I'm encouraged that he has gone out and influenced games with goals and assists. If he can come back and play with more assertiveness/decisiveness then perhaps he can be a serviceable option for us, though he's probably more suited to being the third man in midfield. He's certainly a different profile to our other central midfield players as someone that is happy to carry the ball.

I will be very surprised if Monlouis is in Gavin's plans.
 
This is great news. He'll learn a lot playing with Christian Smith and gives us height, pace and strength as well as footballing ability.

Re: Monloius, he may just need a run of games to get up to speed. Going from Tiptree to Hamilton in the SPL is a big jump. A lot of folk don't realise how fast and psychical Scottish football is and that may have dented his confidence. Particularly as Hamilton have a weird plastic pitch and are guaranteed to be in the relegation dogfight every year.
