Travis has been hampered with numerous knocks this season, or so we are told, so it's bound to have an impact. However i'm not altogether keen on what they seem to be trying to turn him into.

Yet another though whose more suited to a quicker tempo more in your face style instead of what we try and play.  So it's hard to tell if he's stalled or is just going through the motions being told what to do.

Either way a player like him should be having his good points encouraged not shackled.

Wing, centre mid, centre mid, wing, No 10, wing, centre mid (scores a goal), dropped, dropped.

I haven't a clue how good he is.

He hasn't been moved around that much recently. I think Rothwell, cos he can do great stuff , is one a lot of excuses are made for. Yes, of course Mowbray complicates him by doing things like dropping him when playing well and that doesn't help

As AA has shown though. Players at some  point need to take personal responsibility for their performances. Obviously I have issues with some aspects of his game, but he's going Premier league and theres no sign of that happening for anyone else anytime soon. If Rothwell scored goals like he can even every 3-4 games, he probably would be too. The thing is he does it what, one in 7 or 8?

I really hope if he does then it doesn’t go badly for him. South American football fans are fervent and ruthless.

If a bit of booing from a couple of Rovers fans managed to upset him then he’s in for a world of pain if he doesn’t perform.

Tickled me that the LT were framing the story around ‘pledging his allegiance’ and the ‘decision he has to make’, like Southgate could miss the chance for a call up and for BB to take on Foden, Sancho et al for that wide role. 😁

In days gone by, more cynical England managers have played these players in meaningless friendlies to keep the players from doing this, just in case they perform in future.

Chris Sutton was taken the piss out of when it came to England, and was only given one appearance, and Ben isn’t fit to wrap gorilla tape around the aging aglets of Chris Sutton’s shoelaces.

These days friendlies don’t count e.g. Wilf Zaha

Didn’t know that. Bit of a nonsense if a player with grandparents of four different nationalities could do a tour of friendlies.

This has to be one of the most bizarre call ups ever. Great for him though. 

You can't help but feel he's one of the most overrated young players. First he gets sold for £7m and now he gets called up by Chile!
