Evans, Johnson and Holtby are prone to being injured. Travis is out for a while. We need Buckley, Davenport and Rothwell. There's always Mr reliable Bennett as back up also. Buckley is developing into a superb player and should continue in our first team doing it.

And its brilliant we have the Cavalry (Nyambe, Dack, Evans, Ayala and the other young lads) for after the International break . This allows us to have a 20 man continuity. Its a 46 match season and Reading/Bristol City + a few others  will deteriorate.

Don’t think he’s ready from what I’ve read. I can imagine after the int. break we’ll see some bench appearances

Its difficult giving a defender minutes off the bench though which may be a problem. I  would guess that he will get an hour or a full game (or a couple) between now and that first game after the break, either for the reserves or in a friendly or two.

Assuming Gallagher is fit enough for the bench on Saturday, and obviously with a gap, a friendly or two in that 2 weeks might help to get a few up to speed.

I’m just going off what’s been said, about his fitness and his own words.

We seem to have a decent connection with City, wonder if they will let us loan Sterling? 

On another note, not sure this looks good for the career of Fisher.

This lad is coming in to be the Under 18’s Sun goalkeeper, I hardly think it’ll affect Fisher really

True, I just think it easier to give attacking players cameos, rarely do you see a centre back coming on for 20 minutes unless its in addition to the defenders already to hold onto a league.

The 2 week gap might come at a good time in terms of arranging a friendly or two to get minutes into Ayala, Gallagher, and maybe a few on the fringes like Davenport, Buckley, Chapman etc.

We'd have probably said Dolan wouldn't affect Gallagher et al but here we are a few months later and he's basically our very own Lionel Messi...

Eastwood seems to have the u-23s berth (and looks the better prospect) so I guess Fisher will be going out on loan again as soon as we have an experienced back up for Thomas.

Sub keeper? Doubtful. I would imagine Eastham will be pushed up to 23s. 

He’s to “push Aidan Downing” in the Under 18’s. He’s 16 years old, he’s not going to be part of the 23’s.

Fisher - 1st Team Sub Keeper
Hilton/Eastham - U23’s Keeper
Dowling/New Lad - U18’s Keeper

yeah, so, as i said, hardly good news for Fisher. 

Highly rated, Munich were after him, he wont be a sub keeper. He will go ahead of Dowling. All pushed upwards, so Fisher is under real pressure now.
