    Manning

    We've already played three games since Ryan Mannings returned from his loan spell with Rotherham. Yet, he is still waiting to play some minutes for the first team. With Cameroon and Luongo out of the team, there must be some space for Ryan. He did well during his loan spell and coming on as a sub could have helped today. I trust SM judgement, however, I hope Manning will not end up like Smyth, who I believe has been giving the cold shoulder by the boss.

    Agree on this. Everyone wants that sort of mix in the middle....a sort of a Keane/Scholes or Vieira/Petit partnership.

    Also agree on Goss. Got to be a Billy Big B*llox issue about him.

    Also, it was interesting to see SM showing his frustration with Cousins on Saturday after he placed another inaccurate pass, which lost us possession again. He ran into his technical area urging him to delay passing or hold on to it until there was an easier pass on.

    Now that we've lost a game I wouldn't be surprised to see him break up this Scowen / Cousins combo.

    Have to agree that Smyth and Manning appear to have been overlooked by SM. I also rate them both at this level, so can only assume that the manager has good reasons for it.

    But agree about his attitude cos he shot his bolt cos he'd had a couple of good games be it against poor opposition, but he thought he was the next big thing with his comments which tbh in the end has backfired on him.

    I've got a few family ties to Glasgow Rangers. Feedback from his stint up there was very mixed to say the least. Apparently looked top drawer one week, then would not show up the next.

    Needs jogging on in my opinion. Came with much fanfare (and no doubt a hefty wage for a kid with no real experience), but has produced nothing and has been overlooked by 2 managers in a row.

    On paper, he should really be the guy to come in as cover for Mas. The fact MacLaren has gone with Scowen instead speaks volumes!

    Bang on. Manning and Smyth are more than capable at this level from the appearances I've seen. Should at least be making the bench.

    The one I can't work out is Sean Goss. Seems to have had decent games at U23 everytime I've seen a report (scores or assists) but is seemingly a million miles off being in the squad. Can't see he's got a future here personally.

    In your opinion, to me seen enough to know smyth & manning have got that little something different and in my opinion should be getting involved more, said before as not a fan of loans & would always prefer to bring on our own than a loanee, even though these loans have turned out ok, but we have youngsters that are better than given credit for in my opinion. Manning was excellent when he played away to villa last year and just needs game time same as smyth.

    Well it has be realistic that interested clubs must have put off him with his early exit to join the Oz squad and his prolonged absence while bench warming

    imo we should get shot of him in June he was late back and out of form at the start of the season then 10 weeks later he's of again , yeah he's the best we've got for his position but in reality he's not ireplacable or that great to be given a couple of months out of our season as a debt ridden championship side , it's a luxury we can't afford
