    Fully agree with this, everyone wins with this deal with the only minor risk being if O'Donnell gets sent off or injured during a match then GSK will have to play the rest of the match. Hornby is in a similar McLaughlin in that he's getting towards his mid 20's with very little regular minutes behind him which is what all players especially goalkeepers need to develop. With this move he'll get 3 months of football week in week out and sounds like he'll be quite busy. Also should hopefully make GSK step it up even more knowing he could be called up at any moment and also get to be in and around the squad on a matchday where even if he isn't playing will learn bits from the more experienced players.
    Could also be looking ahead to next year and if we weren't to be promoted then we might let O'Donnell go to free some wages and go with Horny and GSK as the 2 keepers next year.

    Against Man City, when ROD was rested, GB played Sykes Kenworthy between the sticks. That's what made him 2nd choice.

    Good. With this stupid rule the keeper should be the homegrown or a top talent both Devine isn't.

    Devine shouldn't be anywhere near the first 11 if this squad is serious.

    The way fordy goes on about him he wouldn't have him in the country never mind the team........ I think he has actually pinched a midget off fordy and he's still not got over it...... :unsure:

    Hornby debuted for Fylde this evening, conceding three as they lost 3-1 to second bottom Chesterfield.

    I think if he wanted some action, he's going to get it for sure.

    Didn’t someone on here suggest exactly this earlier this season? Sure I read it somewhere, although I may have mixed it up with Facebook

    The net is closing.......... get out while you can with your dignity in tact. There's plenty of room on the naughty step.
