Kevin Blackwell: Curtains for Byrne

Byrne enjoyed a successful loan spell with the Shakers last term and put pen to paper on a two-year contract in August having been released by Leicester.

He made the last of four appearances during the current campaign in October's Johnstone's Paint Trophy penalty shoot-out triumph over local rivals Rochdale.

The 19-year-old has since endured a deeply frustrating period on the sidelines due to a blood infection.

"He's got that viral infection that we know about and he's just got to hope that we can get him through a month where he doesn't have a relapse," Blackwell explained. "Then, hopefully, that's the point that he can move on.

"There's no doubt we're looking at next season. This season's gone for Shane."

eah, that'll do nicely. Guess they're feeling pretty flush after the World Cup and see a few successful years ahead with our new manager. Get Vidal in asap now, and let's get things back on track.

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.
