Article from the Athletic says Cox was told on the Monday he was starting, which would suggest Alvaro likely tested positive that morning, which would mean he’d still be isolating.

If he does play at Port Vale he will not be able to play for anyone else this season. I think that is how it works
Last season Dervisoglu was able to play for 3 teams because the rules were adjusted in light of the pandemic. I'm not sure if that's still the case this season? Plus Norway's season runs from March to November, which means the usual rules don't always apply.

Why? He's a professional footballer.
Genuinely interested to know why you think he would be relieved to miss a chance to show what he's all about
Agree completely.
Why are people so fixated with age??
This lad is apparently very highly righted, we spent decent wedge getting him (beating off stiff competition if you believe what you read) & some of our fans are showing more nerves than the young man himself.
The ageism is so baffling.
Hope he plays & hope he has a blinder. If he doesn't it's not the end of the world ffs

That is why I stuck think at the end of the post. You could well be right.

I guess the new "7 day isolation" rule changes things now...........

It will depend if he's unvaccinated and identified as a contact of someone with Covid-19, when it's still 10 days. (As I read it, nothing yet on the *.gov site.)

I think the second part is only relevant if you haven’t contracted the virus yourself?

As I wrote, I've not seen the actual text and there's usually a significant difference in the detail between the headline-grabber and the actuality.

Can we please close this thread - if Matthews reads it, it'll only give him more nerves. Leave the kid alone to play (or not).

18 year olds don't read forums.

Now officially a first team squad player. Congrats!

PG says he will stay with us next season, so no loan out.

With Lössl and Alvaro leaving, it sounds like another GK will come in to compete with him for a spot on the bench.

Doing well so far. Another clean sheet hopefully.

Back up this season?
The only thing is that it would be good to get him some first-team action so that we can have him ready to step in when Raya is sold for squillions down the line.

If he does serve as back-up then I wouldn't be surprised if he featured in all of our Caraboa Cup games and some FA Cup action too.

Maybe but I would expect us to sign another keeper who would be more experienced and maybe closer to Raya in terms of competing for the number one spot. Cox seems to have huge potential but I doubt he is PL ready just yet.

Not yet, But he's looking very good for our future and he's got time on his hands, Perhaps use him for Caraboa cup games, I think we will still need a more experienced/senior keeper for the PL, The club will know what's best 🐝

This lad has a very bright future.

3rd choice if not pushing 2nd choice. Many young keepers break through at a young age.

So good to hear 'Brentford Goalkeeper' and '....another fine save' in the same sentence more than once during the commentery.

On 35 minutes Cox's ball out to create a chance reminded me of the move that lead to Watkins goal in the play-off semi against Swansea. IIRC Raya's was a throw.

Would like to see him out on loan next season, maybe to a division two club or National League Club where he will get game time.

Hes far too good for National League.
Should be looking at top half League One minimum for him, if not our second choice.
Also there’s little point in a loan to a club that’ll want him just to boot the ball up the pitch and have kittens if he tries to control the ball and pick a pass. But we did prove a decent team in L2 for Szczesny to develop at.

I think we were mid table in League 1 during Szczesny's time with us.
