Unless he has formally retired, Scott Brown is presumably still registered as a player with us. So he could come back and sit on the bench next Saturday?No I wasn't seriously suggesting Big Kev, I was using him to highlight the potential problem, perhaps for clarity I should have suggested flying Pate in from Arizona for the game !
There is £67k at stake on this game, plus untold financial potential gains to had from further progress. It would seem a mighty responsibility to place on the shoulders of a young keeper making his debut, if Blackman were to be injured. Hopefully of course it won't become an issue, but I trust that due consideration has been given to this.
