  1. They certainly would be, this isn’t the cup, just like anyone who might be suspended for the re-arranged game won’t be able to play. Anyone recalled from loan or signed this month would be available for selection.
  2. Obviously have no idea but it might be worth pointing out to them we have been playing with 7, 8 or 9 injured for some while, so seeing as tomorrow was probably our least likely game of late that we would get anything, it makes much less sense to fake a postponement then than say the Luton match..
  3. Worrying but absolutely right that safety should come first. We won’t play a league game for a fortnight now, which can only be a good thing. Time to get as many well as possible after this, some time to sort out the position of those on loan & get the “usual suspects” (Vyner, Hunt, Nagy, Martin & the like) some well deserved rest.
  4. Superficially that’s possibly true, but firstly look at Joe Morrell’s career. We sent him on loan to Margate, he couldn’t get a game there & they sent him back. LJ then had to beg his Dad to take him on loan at Cheltenham & he only got his first start there because someone pulled out injured prior to the kickoff, he then played for Lincoln. Morton is considered more of a first team prospect at present than those who are regulars on the bench, Pearson, Zac Smith or Towler, how do I know that? Because he was the one sent on loan to a league club. We aren’t expecting a
  5. Top post. It was a truly dreadful year & in the scheme of things the football really wasn’t that important, even if many of us obsess over it..
  6. The transfer window doesn’t open again until January 2nd so maybe that is what he meant? But agree, it appears a very odd statement. If we inserted a recall clause they can come back, if we didn’t (unless the other club chooses to let them return), we can’t. Holden & Tinnion will know the details here, all that needs to be decided then is which ones we recall. We had 9 out on loan at the end of December, personally I cannot see a value in recalling all of them, but certainly we could do with at least 4 (probably 5) coming back. Will be interesting to see if any of those
  7. The transfer window for recalls doesn’t open until tomorrow but I would be amazed if we haven’t made decisions in the majority of cases & told the clubs informally, after all, unlike a transfer, these are our players. Hull media are reporting they expect Adelakun to be recalled, for instance. With Paterson (& I hesitate to be too optimistic, for obvious reasons) it seems we feel it isn’t a surgery issue, so are hopeful he’ll be back before many of the others, we certainly badly miss him.
  8. Nope, signed a 4 year deal in late 2019/ early 2020..
  9. You can certainly make a case for Adelakun as well, he hasn’t done too much in his very limited opportunities for us but had played over 100 times for Scunthorpe when we shelled out £600k for him (I know, I know), he has since had loan spells at Rotherham, who got promoted & at Hull, who are 3rd. He is 24 now, so no kid & is a big old unit for a wide player. For all the fantasy land stuff about a collection of 18 year olds facing the likes of Brentford & Norwich, he is a much more realistic option.
  10. Has Pulis mentioned the work he does for charity yet? ***.
  11. Mixed bag, Morton is cup tied, Pring is, so are Cundy & Janneh but Owura Edwards, Adelakun, Jonny Smith & obviously Palmer, aren’t.
  12. Yes, he is left footed, so would be a far more logical fit than asking Massengo to play out of position, as Holden did at Luton. Other option will be to recall Pring, play him at LB & play Rowe in the position he played virtually every game whilst at Doncaster..
  13. Indeed he does, had a spell at Forest Green last season too. This strikes me as lot to do with Holloway leaving, rather than these 2 being the first in line to be recalled. Would expect Pring & Palmer or Adelakun back shortly as well.
  14. Would expect that means probably 4 will be coming back from loans, Pring, Jonny Smith, Palmer or Adelakun & Morton. No indication when Paterson is back, which might have an impact.
  15. No surprise, but we agree & for all LJ’s faults, one of those 2 you named (& arguably both) was definitely largely down to him. Prior to his latest injury you probably could have included Dasilva as someone we could reasonably expect to sell on at a profit, but this shin business has happened twice with him now & so a sensible club won’t dive in & buy him until he has proved himself with a long unbroken run of games. Mawson has the pedigree, true & maybe the fact that we ended Webster’s reputation as a sick note made us think we could do so again? I know you disag
