I suspect in reality Tanner is simultaneously one for the future, and one who could play now. Both things can be true.

Someone mentioned him perhaps being Simpson’s replacement a year early, and that’s maybe true. But if last year taught us anything, odds are if you’re in the squad you’ll get called on.

If he's a man of his word then Tanner will play. Pearson said only 3 days ago in the pre-Cardiff press conference that he's "not a believer in collecting players".

Would you expect to have another body or two in before the deadline?

No. I’m not really too worried about that. Regardless of what other people talk about in this window...If something happens late in this window, it happens but as it stands, we aren’t or there is no intention to add.

Unless we bring a loaner in in one or two different positions that we’ve looked at it but again, I’m not going to force the issues. I’m not going to bring people in for the sake of it. We either get the people that we’re trying to bring in or we go with what we’ve got. It’s fairly straightforward in my head. I’m not a believer in collecting players.

I love a good smokescreen, me

‘One for the future’ or here to play? 

Bit of both would be my guess. Dip in and out in preparation to replace Simpson next season. 

And with a name like Tanner I hope he skins a few rather than leathering it up field...sorry!

Maybe is a player like Adomah who steps forward and plays better game by game.

I would like to have a more positive reaction about everything that is happening.

We are used to be negative in every way about our team and that won't help at all. In other words, is better to have another RB when we lack options that don't have it at all. If he does good, we did it ! If he doesn't, is not worse than before and not a lot of money.

It's quite amusing.

I follow the transfer section of OTIB and this guy (who could knock on my front door and  I would be be clueless about his identity) rocks up and signs for us and not a single whisper had come from the corridors of power at the gate. And now he is on the pay roll. Understudy for SIMPSON who knows, but rest assured he will have been watched and scouted for some time before the deal happens.  

Fair play I say to those who kept that under wraps for a while. Wonder who else is perhaps being watched  & hunted in a similar manner. Great stuff

Serious questions need to be asked

Does that mean that once he is observed to be on the bench in our next game, he is no longer one who can play right now? 

It might mean that if he ever goes in the Millwall end to retrieve the ball and then the lights go out he is both dead and alive.

In his interview he said he knew he was being watched by us so we’ve been scouting him for a while and obviously we liked what we saw

According Gregor “Someone the club will have been tracking for some time via head of technical recruitment Sean Gilhespy and his team”
