It’s being reported that Stephen Ireland is the latest to be ‘exiled’ to training with the youth team, although no strict reason has been given nor proof.
The reports have stemmed from the midfielder not being in the squad for the last two games, and they then suggest – without source I might add – that this week he has been instructed to train with the youngsters.
There are no quotes, no sources close to, nothing by way of weight, but since when has that stopped speculation taking the internet like a fire storm.
The problem we have is there’s form for this isn’t there, but I certainly haven’t heard of any falling outs lately. Everybody has their own opinions on what Ireland may or may not bring to the table, but I think it would be hard for anybody to say at the moment Charles N’Zogbia is not deserving of his place and it does seem Paul Lambert seems to have come round to the idea that it’s an either/or situation between Ireland, Bannan and N’Zogbia.
So could that simply be why he’s out at the moment?
Won’t stop the conspiracies mind you, and I’d imagine unless there is a flat denial by somebody this will run and only gain pace if he’s not in the squad for our next match again.
