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."

ever ceases to amaze me when ex players come out with comments like that. Clearly they have zero interest in the best interests of a club that provided them with a living to be making such idiotic and boorish comments as that. Shame on you Jimmy Case.

ait, so now he can get injured when he's not on international duty? It's almost as if his previous injury could've happened at any time and being with the England squad had nothing to do with it.
