to be fair Gardner obviously isn't aware of his ineligibility himself, so i'm not sure why everyone else are expected to be so certain (we don't all have time to scrawl through 14 pages of opinions)

'Speaking to Forest Player, Gardner admitted that he is targeting a place in Tim Sherwood’s squad for the FA Cup Final, despite still being on loan with Nottingham Forest.

“I still have to maintain my fitness and go back to Villa and impress another new gaffer," the young midfielder said. "I mean that’s part of football.

“And hopefully I can go back there and impress him, and be involved in the cup final.”'

Poor Gary will be gutted when he reads this thread.

Perhaps he'll post something like 'so can I come back and play then or not?'

Blimey.  We're chucking contracts about at the moment.

Really feel for GG, so highly rated as a youngster and then progress wrecked by those injuries. He's 23 now and still yet to make an impression, I really hope i'm wrong but i'm doubtful he'll make it with us. Another loan spell coming up for him I expect.

blimey good for Gary. There's a player there if he can only stay healthy for a bit (for us). Because when he has a run of games at Forest he was looking every bit the player we had hoped to see emerge from our set up. Also, is what happens when the club employs someone to look after contracts? Hendrik is certainly earning his corn right now.

Huh. Either he's done something Sherwood likes in the pre-season, or they're just making it an easier decision as to whether or not to farm him out on loan again.

I thought he'd signed one not long back. Anyway, a bit surprised by this to be honest.

great
this kid is one for the future
delighted we have tied down  this promising young 23 year old lad till he is 26
he'll never get a regular place in the side
but at least he wont be short of money

Very surprised TBH.
I hope to be even more surprised when he holds down a regular starting slot, on merit.

It is worth signing him just to piss his brother off.
