Bristol City manager Steve Coppell has criticised the way the loan player system affects lower league clubs.The Robins boss has made two permanent signings this summer but has so far resisted going into the loan market. [LNB]He told BBC Radio Bristol: "I think for Football League clubs you shouldn't have loans - or they should be very, very restricted. [LNB]"I'm not a big fan of the system, but I do realise that is the game we have to play now - which is unfortunate." [LNB]He added: "These youngsters would have come anyway, for free. All the Championship clubs are just fattening lambs for slaughter. [LNB]"Talented youngsters - who can't get a game in the Premier League club's first team or reserves - are coming here, getting some real value added, then being sold on to Championship clubs at benefit to [the parent] clubs." [LNB]So far this summer City have signed Barnet winger Albert Adomah and Reading midfielder Kalifa Cisse.
