Shame with Oduwa as doesn't seem his future is with us but we have a lot of options in his position and lads like Winks and Onomah are getting the chances so must have shown a lot more in training etc for Poch to trust them in the squad.

Would have liked to see him come through too though as everyone loves a tricky winger lol and I think he has the talent, but perhaps he is too old-fashioned a style of winger as nowadays wide players have to offer more than trickery and pace.

McGee also seems surplus and López has taken the third keeper spot for us (presuming we'll make the loan permanent, kinda weird we got him on a loan).

Note the comment about his demeanour, holding players accountable on the pitch. Oduwa seems more of the opposite, I suppose, a free spirit. Like Brazil in the old times.
Yes, that's what impressed me, a goalkeeper who takes charge of his defence can only be a good thing!

I really like the lad and I was hoping he'd become number 2 soon behind Lloris and eventually be a homegrown number 1
No reason why he won't. Just because McGann wants him it doesn't mean we will sell, and if Vorm decides to go elsewhere for more playing time he might end up as number 2.

Really pleased, to hear McGee is doing so well. Has always been a good shot stopper but fair to say more than susceptible to making an unforced area, like he lacks concentration. Sounds like playing 'proper football' he seems to be cutting it out and being more focused which is great to see. Hope he continues

Was this deliberate mate? ;-)

Loan extended until end of season.

Would be nice to see him as our number 2 keeper next season, will be interesting to see how it pans out with McGee and Lopez...

Posh fans think he is PL level and the best keeper they've had since David Seaman.
Even if they are bias or delusional, it is great to see him getting such high praise (although I remember Archer looking really good at Wycombe but he did not make it sadly, despite being an able deputy for me on Football Manager). Wonder if he will be third choice next season, or step up to the Championship?

If we're serious about Lopez, as it seems we are due to Poch being a fan, anyone think Vorm could be off in the summer? Lloris first choice, Lopez second with McGee 3rd / on loan? We should be looking to treat McGee like Chelsea/City did with Courtois / Hart. Get him the game time at a decent level so when he comes back he will either be ready for first team involvement or to be sold at a decent fee.

Personally I think it is hard to introduce keepers. The above suggestion seems the best way. Hopefully he can get a Championship loan next season now

Vorm has only recently been in a #pochpose so doesn't seem too likely.

Hopefully McGee gets a crack at proving himself.
