The late timing puzzles me somewhat.

The international break has been planned for a long time and squads know for a while but when we were losing 6 games on the trot there was no request from Mansfield to postpone the game.

Now  we've won 2 on the trot, all of a sudden they want to call the game off!

Maybe they don't want to play us after the two wins?

I agree - my thoughts are Embleton is worth more to us in a dynamic midfield pairing with Clifton, than any of their dubious internationals is to them.

My first thought was - I'm glad the game is off because Embleton will be missing:
- but now I'm thinking - Mansfield are frightened of Town's new team energy.

Wouldn't surprise me if Mansfield want to play us when Embleton's loan period has expired.

Quoted from Les Brechin


Ryan Sweeney - Republic of Ireland U21 (On-loan from Stoke)
Krystian Pearce - Barbados
Omari Sterling-James - St.Kitts and Nevis.


Personally I don’t think Loan players should count

Just a thought. It would be interesting if all clubs were forced to fulfil fixtures during international weeks, including PL clubs.


Except there's no PL fixtures to fulfill during international weeks

I believe cricket just carries on with there fixtures when test matches are on, tough if you have internationals missing, but it would give fringe players, even under 23's a chance.

Mansfield have 3 players called up for Int duty but only 2 of them played last Saturday so seems the rules are being stretched

One of them has made one 30-minute sub appearance in the league this year, plus another 17 mins in a single league-cup defeat in August.

I’d be questioning this if I were a GTFC official, as they’ll be without 2 of their starting back 4 including their captain.

It’s like us losing Akheem Rose to the Jamaica u20 squad.

Out of order as it might be, it'll give us a little extra incentive when it is played.
