No announcement from Walsall yet re Rodney, so the rumour is probably rubbish. They have signed Donervon Daniels, CB from Crewe on a 5 month contract.

Unless we are trying to control the narrative with a new player ourselves. A bit like Harrogate did with Hall leaving.

I honestly can’t see this one happening though. For all of Rodney’s struggles with fitness and form I don’t see how it benefits us.

Would be interesting to hear a statement from the club on Rodneys position.

The guy who posted that Rodney thing seems to have been on the wind-up, going off some of his other posts.

 

It's backfired as a lot of people were hoping it was true.

Gotta love twitter with its toxic like Trolls/bot accounts

 

There's definitely a player in Rodney , just needs that fire back. Wonder if its long covid that's affected him fitness/stamina wise maybe ? 

If we didn't have so many injuries , I do think a loan deal would have benefited Rodders.

We have no chance given the way DC manages the status of his players. He's the only manager I have ever known who has players with long term injuries but makes it sound like they are in contention to start. He set his stall out early doors with the local press on players to the point where they don't even bother to ask him most of the time.

He's been at Harrogate until this January, and was with them for part of the 2019/20 season when he didn't play for Sunderland at all. Has only played 3 games for Sunderland this season and the word is Harrogate are hopeful of getting him to the end of the season - unless somebody hijacks that?

He can't play for anyone else then.

I think the key signings this week will be replacements for Conlon and Gibbons, if they are both out long-term.

In my view, there isn't much coming back from the loss of your captain and best player. You take them out of any team and they'd fall off.

Finishing in the playoffs is now an aim and not as much of an expectation. Monumental week for Flitcroft and the recruitment department to plug the gaps. It can be done, but this is the time when we see if having a well-structured recruitment department pays off to the extent we hoped it would.

I am probably wrong but i dont think they will rush into replacing Gibbons,as they have Hussey and Benning on the left and Cass and wozza on the right,also i think Hurst can play either side as well,so that wont be a priority but i agree a conlon replacement will come in and another attacking player plus 2 more maybe

Surely the journos could ask if he’s injured? I’m sure the last time they enquired they asked “is Rodney in yours plans” to which he said something like all my players are in my plans. They are obviously scared to ask any pertinent questions for fear of being snapped at, which is neglecting their responsibilities but there you go.

Agree with you on Gibbo, options already at the Vale. Do wonder if because of budget constraints our midfield might just stay as it is.
