Rather he never played for us again and we use Barjonas on Wednesday.   It was very clear that he didn't want to be on the park on Saturday and I believe his injury was the square root of fuck-all.  We're better using our young players who want to play.  I also have to say Bates looked like a decent player on Saturday, best I've seen him.

he has been disappointing. . On arsenals website this is his profile.

" an exceptional dribbler" ??

 

Following on from an encouraging loan spell with Brentford during the 2014/15 season, attacking playmaker Jon spent last campaign with Birmingham City - and made an instant impact, scoring twice in his first two games.

The skilful midfielder soon established himself as a first-team regular, adding six more goals to his haul after 38 appearances. At the end of the season Jon was named Supporters' Player of the Season, Players' Player of the Season and won the Goal of the Season award for an exceptional volley against Ipswich Town. Jon (full name Jon Miquel Toral Harper) arrived from the Barcelona academy at the same time as Hector Bellerin. An exceptional dribbler, Jon has an English mother, and can play wide or in the number 10 position.


It doesn't really bear any resemblance to the player we see who flatters to decieve on most occasions.

 

To be honest, when you look at the loan deals we have had over the last two seasons they have been - by and large - completely ineffective

Hard to argue with that.

What about the boy Burt? He hasn't featured and i'm surprised about that.

Bates had his best game in a Rangers shirt on saturday, he looks to have got rid of his nerves on the ball and has improved his distribution. If he keeps that form up in his last couple of games I'd keep him around next season as 4th choice.

Toral is a shitebag

An attacking playmaker who we ask to be a defensive midfielder. Square peg round hole.

Another of Warburtons attacking options.!! Think he had only one player profile when making his signings.

Toral has a fair bit of skill but looks too lazy and even though he  is a tall lad does not like to tackle much or chase back. I would play the youngsters as we have nothing to gain by playing him now

I agree he shouldn't play again, but only because he's a loanee and there's no point.

Btw, The last person people thought had an injury that was 'the square root of fuck-all' was Danny Wilson.

Yup, I wonder if Pedro will be taking on any loans in the summer? If so I hope they are more successful the the ones MW got us.

Thought he done well at times - unfortunately he lacks aggression in the middle of the park - which we need at the moment.

You're right. Played in La liga, the English Championship and was on the books of Arsenal and Barca - but afraid to play in the SPFL... 

Thought he was alright at the weekend, and have seen a good few people saying they thought he played well. 

Thought that Barjonas did absolutely nothing at the weekend, and we were completely overrun when he came on. Beating the sheep again sends a message for next season and maintains our terrific home record against them - so our strongest available team has to go out IMO.

He is way too much of a lightweight to play in Scotland. We need a couple of hard men to be able to compete properly next year.

He is a decent player, don't think he will make it at Arsenal but he is our best midfielder at the moment.

The lad can obviously play football but we're not seeing it at the moment.  Maybe it's a lack of fitness or confidence.  It's too late for him to make an impact as the seasons almost over.  A real shame.

I don't rate him one little bit. Had to believe he's been anywhere near Barcelona tbh.

 

I wouldn't play him again if it were up to me.His attitude stinks.
