At a guess, weve sent Mitchell out instead of Roos as we can send him on a youth loan with a recall?

 

We sent MItchell out instead of Roos because he's considered third choice.

He will continue to fall down pecking orders too, due to his size, unless he proves he can do it in competitive games. There is little belief in his ability to claim balls into his area against most teams, for example, as it stands.

This loan is necessary for him.

He's suffered, in a sense, from Carson's excellent fitness while he was considered #2 and Roos was out on loan. Now Roos has proven himself capable (of playing men's football) with a couple of good loan spells, and that + his size advantage is why he's now #2.

 

If this loan goes particularly well for him, and he allays some fears, he'll probably be #2 again when he comes back. There's not a great deal between him and Roos.

About 6" I think...………..

May be Mitchell in goal Saturday then

Roos is obviously ahead of him in the current setup but I advocated in the Southamptom thread that we should rest Carson, play Roos and have Mitchell on the bench presuming Mitchell was returning from loan.

Only if he hasn't already played in the FA cup for Oxford.

He can't play in the competition for both sides now.

Ah that’s a point, forget they play earlier in the fa cup lower down.
