    Scored a late penalty to equalise against Bristol City and then scored in the shoot-out. He seems to have re-established himself at QPR this season and really should be considered as much of an option as any of the other Championship midfielders under 25: https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/49245333

    Seems to be playing as a wing back just like Stevens is. Certainly comfortable on the ball, his positional play might need some work though.

    Looks like Manning is progressing nicely at QPR. Learning his trade and only 23, but could definitely be a viable option at left back in a yearís time...

    Mick McCarthy was at Loftus Road today. I hope he liked what he saw

    Was having a look through QPR forum to see if they were discussing anything about Masterson. Realized how highly they rate Manning. Since converting to left wing back by Warburton, he has been their player of the season so far, topping a number of their team stats charts. Itís getting interesting. His contract expires next summer, he has an option to extend it by one year. Southampton and Newcastle both allegedly sniffing around for January moves. Admittedly, Iíve never seen him play but worth monitoring closely. Certainly should have been in Micks squad by now, considering his bizarre Hourihane LB experiment, and Dohertys subpar performance at LB today. Some ultra reliable resources referenced below:

    I think the timelines were against him, as they have been for a number of Mick's potential options (which is why I feel some of the criticism directed at Mick for his selections have been unfair). At the start of September, Stevens was the obvious #1 leftback, with Cunningham as back-up, with a couple of makeshift options available (Manning would have been a makeshift option himself, having only just started playing left-back). And even Doherty, on paper, would have been a much more obvious option in the run-up to today's game (experienced Premier League full-back, who has played on both right and left vs young Championship midfield player, who has only recently moved into defence). Based on this I was initially going to say that it's too late for Manning to feature under Mick but, with Cunningham out now, I guess there is the possibility of a squad call-up in November as back-up to Stevens (although Derrick Williams might still be just ahead in the pecking-order). Also, if he continues his upward trajectory, he could be called up for whatever games we are playing in the Spring - more likely if we do somehow get the victory we need to qualify without the Nations League playoffs and are playing friendlies to build up to the Finals.
