Interestingly, If I remember correctly, Flanagan jr started the season in the academy as a half back. Possibly for 2 games, before he got switched to fullback.

Well Dunning said that after having a scan on the ankle he's seeing the specialist this week. Must say it didn't sound good but there was no mention of him missing the rest of the season.


Just because Dunning hadnt said it doesnt mean its not happening

Im hoping that the specialists sees something that wasnt picked up on the scan but as of now hes done for the year.

This season is done I reckon we won't make the top 8 so the pressures off.

Hopefully we'll see Flanagan and Lawford at the weekend. As has been said if you're not going to give a em a try in this game in the middle of an injury crisis then you may as well not bother at all.

If Dunning picks them I'll be there.

I know.

But if we can't win this one we may as well forget it. Apparently Dunning is down to 18 fit players.

Could do with getting Jowitt back in the side as Lilley is out with an ankle injury.


Dunning doesn't have 18 fit players in his full squad - Clawson isn't the fitness guy is he?

How does George "Saturday night's all right for fighting" Flanagan get a game let alone every week?

Is that a nickname you've come up with on your own Sal? Surely with George's record you can do better? As for how he gets a game, well according to Dunning "he brings a lot of enthusiasm". You could say that about WW2 Kamikaze pilots as well. In truth he's not our first choice hooker but covers a spell there off the bench.

Clawson hasn't been the fitness guy for over 10 years at least. Looking at some of the players I think Nigel Wright is the dietician.

George "the testicle twister" Flanagan is a liability like Tetevano at Leeds. Unlike Tetevano there isn't a good player deep down inside him. Surprised Kear hasn't tried to poach him - very much his kind of player

What is sad is you see fitter players in the National League - that is a disgrace really.

Flanagan's fitness isn't as bad as some and he's knocking on a bit now too. He's yet to let his discipline get the better of him this season too which makes a welcome change. I think there are more deserving targets.

I’ll give Flanagan his due, this season he has injected a bit of urgency from the bench when we’ve lacked it and shows some passion for the club (which is more than I can say for others).

I’d personally keep him on as a back up Hooker next season with a view to get into coaching.

Didn’t realise Ho was still on loan? Thought he’d come back from Keighley?
