I think Garner and the club missed a trick regarding the fitness of some players and could have had the game posponed and stretched the rules a little like other clubs probably do. After your isolation period is over there is no guarantee that you are ready to go back to your day job certainly if it involves using energy to get your fitness levels back. I had Covid and even after three weeks home from work I wasn't ready to do any light exercise without getting out of breath so there's a good probability many of those players last night weren't nowhere near able to give 100% so maybw the smart move would have been to tell the EFL there were at least 11 players within the squad who hadn't recovered and were suffering with long Covid symptons.


Been a long month with no income but also with Conroy missing 2 games i can imagine they want him back for City

After considering all options maybe that's why they played the game when they could easily have called me it off.

I thought that when reed was rumoured to be suspended someone said that they were separate competitions.

I'm also wondering whether there will be signings ahead of the Man City game. Garner suggested there would be 'one or two' early on with more strengthening as the window progresses.

Presumably the opportunity to play against Man City would be a draw for potential signings.

Be very harsh pushing out established players for a one-off game we’re going to get royally spanked in and dumped out of the competition.

its hard to remember going into a big cup game at the County ground where nobody is giving us a chance as it's hard to see us posing any sort of threat whatever team they play with the talent they have to choose from.

1 is bound to be a keeper as we will only have 1 keeper for Man City game, but what type of keeper wants to come in knowing he will be 2nd choice for a few games, and then will be 3rd choice a month later

I've got no idea. I was just speaking hypothetically.

I assume that since Payne and Reed played well for a month or so then there might be other clubs sniffing around. If money is offered then we might not be in a position to refuse it.

It might be that some of the loans are called back and moved up a division. It might also be that Williams has a bit more fitness now and is ready to go up a division or so.

Lots of different scenarios - Some more likely than others.

Grant yes, Payne no, Baudrey only if contract is paid up by mutual consent, Gilbert probably, outside of that we need strength in depth and the management can sniff promotion in the air like I can. Without pissing cash away which we do not have they’ll keep as many as is prudent and get what they can in within their budget which may be better than is widely thought.
