The other thing is that we currently have 5 loan players - Keeley, Maguire-Drew, O'Donkor, Thompson, Hartigan. So with Keeley taking up a place, there's no point in us signing any more loan players because we're only allowed to have 5 in a matchday squad.
Well that's not the point is it - there are obvious differences in the situation, hence the different reaction.john dockers shorts wrote: ↑11 Feb 2024, 14:58Point is Gormo was first on team sheet, Hartigan comes in and he loses his place.djhdjh wrote: ↑11 Feb 2024, 12:58Gorman was in and out of the side and coming off the bench when he wasn't starting. Bit different (inevitably for a goalkeeper to some extent) to Walker's situation.
And Walker was significantly better than Gorman last season (not that Gorman wasn't good) so complaining that there's a "love-in" for Walker seems a bit odd.
I don't really care either way, a GK is always above dropping compared to outfield.
I’d argue that neither was Walker for a long period of time prior to Christmas. Despite the results for me we’ve looked much better at the back with Keeley and much less vulnerable, and will be better for it in the long term.
Interview was very very odd in that area. An awkward edit and an abrupt end to the interview suggests there is definitely more to the LW situation than meets the eye (as many have already speculated on here)
He last played on 30th December. Why was he on the bench for the next 2 matches other than if he'd been dropped? Why has it taken about 6 weeks since he last played to get an injection?
Keeley is on loan until the end of the season. Unless he is unavailable we all know he won't lose his place.
