John O'Flynn: Wants more game time

The 31-year-old Irishman had not started a match since late November and the form of youth product Tom Nichols had seen his path to the first team blocked.

But after being handed a shock start and impressing against Burton the day after the window closed, O'Flynn revealed that his previous lack of first-team football had seen him discuss a move away from the club with manager Paul Tisdale.

"I spoke to Tis on numerous occasions because I hadn't played 90 minutes since November," he said. "There were a couple of things, I could have gone on loan - I just wanted to play games really.

"I wasn't in the squad on the Tuesday (a 0-0 draw with Oxford, days before the window closed) but nothing materialised and I was back in the squad last Saturday.

"It was great for me and that is exactly what I want - some games."

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.

aha, The Fine? That will really hurt. Thats like me biting someone in my place of work and getting fined 78p. I would round it up to 80p because thats how much a packet of Quavers or a Topic are in the machine. The bans are heavy though, and rightly so.
