He's not first choice for our U18s, who have been rubbish this season He conceded 8 (EIGHT) goals in his last match.
lets face it he's there to make up the numbers but its still a good thing for him and he should benefit from the experience

I note that N.Ireland have called up Jonny Evans despite him missing the last three City matches.

I think it is inexplicable if we allow him to go and join them, even if he plays on Sunday. It was them overplaying him on the last international break that crocked him last time.

Irrespective of Evans's wishes, we need to withdraw him.

we literally don't have a choice he has to go and at least be assessed by their doctor or they will get him banned from the Liverpool game by FIFA

Maybe Evans can pick up a knock (honest guv) in the last 5 minutes of the Wolves game (assuming he plays)

Certainly won't be the first time a player's been made unavailable for international duty.... so I'm led to believe... allegedly

We can't and neither should we. He's every right to want to help his country make the finals of an international tournament.

I may think international football is wank as many others do, but as a footballer, being a part of your country making an international tournament and then representing them there, is probably one of the things that they long for the most. We'd be utter ****s to try and stop him, even if we had the power to.

If Kasper goes back to Denmark for the international against Iceland, under the new rules he’ll have to self isolate for 14 days on his return

Will miss 3 games whilst he quarantines allegedly. I read that the new rules state we can stop him from going but not sure that would be good for club/player relations. Denmark have a big game
