As Chax is retiring from this, I’ll run the Loan Club for Season 16. The purpose is to make it simple and painless for owners to make one or two loans for their players to get XP, without giving them explicit playing time. Players put on the list are guaranteed to be loaned out, whatever their qualifications. (Preferences will no longer be gathered or attended to.)
The rules are as before, with a few variations:
R50-58: post player urls for one or two players whom you want to loan next season (NB: their values must be ⇐ 100M; more expensive players can be loaned on the open market).
R59: I’ll randomly assign players to owners for loans, except for changes required to meet F4 loan rules.
R60: Loan assignments will be posted in this thread.
Pre-season: Place a minimum bid on your assigned player(s). If someone outbids you, or has placed a bid in ahead of you, you need not make any further bid.
R50-60: End the loan; you may keep your player for the post-season if you wish.
Keep your assigned players for at least the first 50 rounds.
Either don’t play your loanee or ensure you have a 90+ Physio for any matches that you do.
So, for my part, I'm loaning out:

Thanks, everyone. I'll post loan assignments within 12 hours.
OK. I've set up three chains of loan trades. Six players are in violation of the $100M value rule (see initial post). I put that rule in because this Club is meant for beginning users, who may not have the money to spare for such loanees. However, it was easy to create two extra chains for the more expensive players only, so that anyone loaning out a 100+ player would get back the same. Perhaps next year, the Club can be run in two categories explicitly. Anyway, everyone should be happy enough. You all get your low XP players loaned out. Here are the details:

(Edited to exclude >100M players)
Sorry, the >100M player trades weren't right. I'll either fix it or simply exclude them.
There's no path that will accommodate all six of these trades:
Punk Fathers FC Fifi Guyano WF https://www.f4football.com/players/show/142808 117
Algaria FC CB: Ali Sharif Al Emadi https://www.f4football.com/players/show/124223 100.1

Union Omaha FW - Emilio Ventura https://www.f4football.com/players/show/145090 110.4
It would be easy to accommodate five; one of the double traders would need to drop one player. Or, as I suggested in the initial post, you just try your luck on the open market. If you want a list of trades with one of St Mich or Union Omaha's dropped, I'm happy to do that.
Oh sorry didn’t understood well. Could propose sole weaker players but probably too late ?
