Meanwhile Bristol Rovers captain Tom Lockyer didn't feature in either of Giggs's match day squads.
"Tom's been pissing out his arsehole for a couple of days and it looks like a Japanese flag down there. The poor lad has been sat on a rubber ring for the last couple of days, we asked the FA about borrowing a unicorn for the lad".
GC's now confirmed he simply wasn't picked by Giggs, he didn't have a niggle or an illness, if that was his intention why did he bother keeping him in the squad rather than just release him.
The bigger picture / concern is what that suggests he may think about him.
The friendly in Wrexham was a very weak team, with numerous debuts, yet Giggs was also under some pressure to give the north walians a decent team to watch.
If Tom couldn't even be put on the bench for such a game it is concerning.
All four of my beautiful, lovingly produced Rovers books are available as printed books & NEW eBooks. 'Away The Gas' is packed full of over 50 years of 'I was there' away game moments, all written by fans. 'Print That Season!' is an alternative season review for 2014/15, with none of the hindsight that most writers rely on, 'Double Darrell' does the same for 2015/16 but using even better sentences, and 'Back to the Future' is just a shameless continuation!

He's 24 and he's a defender. I can see why (I assume) he wants to join up with the international team as it helps develop his game and he's got at least 4 or 6 years (potentially three tournaments) to become a serious part of the squad, if not the starting XI.
He's also (from what I've seen and heard about him) a switched on guy, so if he's not gaining from the experience, I see no reason he wouldn't just ask Ryan about his future plans for him, and then make a decision based on that conversation....
