I'm not a fan of his, but do we really need 4 keepers in the squad?

If it keeps Lansbury out of the 25 then yes. I would sooner have Heaton play in midfield.

Given Heaton could be back in contention anywhere between now and Christmas I think not giving a spot to Kalinic and relying on Steer as the only backup for an indeterminate period would be a big risk given Steer's injury record. If Heaton is fully fit I suspect Kalinic will go in January. If this also gives Lansbury a nudge to line something up then that's an added bonus and would give us a spot to look at an addition if we need it.

You seemed happy enough that Davis is our only back up for Watkins, despite actually being injured already.

I tight calf that seems to gave kept him out for 1 game not really anything to panic over, especially when I think Traore is also cover there.

He's versatile, he's equally as bad at left back or centre half.

Hopefully a championship team going for promotion in January will take over last 6 months of his deal. Stoke seem to be signing loads of over 30s currently and took Chester from us last Jan so they might be a good bet.

I wonder if we paid-up all of McCormack's deal. I'm afraid to check Aldershot's results in case he's banging them in every week la Jermaine Beckford.

Man wealthy beyond most peoples dreams would rather waste career than take a percentage cut and go and play elsewhere.  I bet Villa have offered him a decent portion of his wages and surely he could get a game somewhere at 5-10k pw?

He's not- hasn't scored in a competitive game yet.

Not necessarily, I think people sometimes underestimate the level of self belief that players have, they have been praised and told how good they are from being kids. He probably believes that he will get another chance somehow and take it. Fuck knows how if he isn't in the squad.

Actually I dont think he could register elsewhere could he?
