Good job - they will never be in our first team this season. Get them match hardened ready for the January to end of season loan transfer window. I doubt if any of the three will be in next seasons team photo

I see young Garner's been banging them in at Carlisle. Has he found his level or is there more to come from him?

will be seeing both Garner and Bennett this Saturday at the Yeovil Carlisle game, so report to follow.

would rather be in Blackpool but was not possible to arrange.
on that subject there was some talk about some West country Horns getting togeather regards future travel to both home and away games.
ANY PROGRESS THERE?

hope we have Hall back in defence with Hoban alongside, I see 3 points coming our way hopefully

Harsh words, I think Garner will end up back in the Championship but alas for him, not with serious contenders.

Hodson is different, he's young and still has loads to offer, at this level and possibly beyond so please no deals Mr Nani, at least not yet.

Hodson is absolutely useless he has no pace can't head the ball and don't think he ever tackles anybody.He just escorts them to the touchline and then they cross the ball into our penalty area! Has no ability going forward either,just get rid Brentford are too high standard for him.Bennett is different he has loads of potential and would keep him.just needs a few games.Garner is a difficult one he has a good touch and could be useful but with the players we have I think it will be difficult for him to stay

Wrong on both counts re Hodson. He is always targetted for his lack of inches, but more often than not comes away with the ball.

Then both Hodson and Thomson would make more constructive wing backs in the current system than Cassetti.

I actually agree with abbots hornet. Hodson has played more games than most think but has not at one point looked like a championship full back. He rarely tackles which tends to make life a little more difficult. Unfortunately for me cassetti has been different class! But hope is not yet lost!
Can't wait to see Blackpool tower on Saturday. COYH

It great how peoples opinions are so divided. I guess we all watch the same players a fair number of times. My view, Hodson - good full back, lacks pace, good feet and gets forward well. Bennett, almost there but probably not quite consistent enough for promotion chasing side, perhaps lacks height for his position, fairly quick. Both are still young and have shown enough to be comfortable in middle tiers of the league. Garner, reasonable touch but needs pace or stature, he has neither, may score goals at a lower level is his confidence is high.
