Craig Tanner has now been released from his parent club, Reading. 

Does this now open up an opportunity for Argyle that perhaps was not affordable earlier ?

Yes I agree argyle should try and sign him. When ever Craig Tanner came on I always thought that he would make something happen. I also hear that Craig Noon has left Cardiff.

Yup, we should sign him.  Can't imagine why he was double sidelined though some have said it might have been 'off the pitch' behavior, I can't ever remember seeing anything less than fully committed on the pitch?  Always rated him, always willing to give and always a goal in him!

It makes it more likely that he'll be on our radar for next season, but that's a long way from a done deal. I'd take a chance on him though

That is exactly what I have been thinking for some time. It was known when he signed on loan this time that his contract with Reading would end on his return to them. It is a similar situation to that surrounding Oscar Threlkeld last season. In his case, Bolton took him back several weeks before the end of season to assess him and it was a big surprise when Bolton failed to offer him a new contract. I have a friend who has contacts at Reading and they told him that Craig was highly regarded in their youth academy and they marked him out as a future Premiership player. Sadly, however, Japp Stam did not rate him and he was not even given the opportunity to demonstrate his ability by playing games for Reading. It would be unfair if his lack of playing time in the second half of the season at Argyle was the reason he was not given further opportunities at Reading. Like many Argyle supporters, I have always been a fan of Tanner and would like him to come back and figure in Derek Adams' plans for next season. Whether he would want to, given that he often failed to make the squad at all on several occasions from January onwards and ended up playing for the reserves, and whether Adams would want to re-sign him is a different matter. He was very popular here and had a strong friendship with Oscar so I think he might favour a new contract. His great team spirit - never fretting or complaining when he was left out of the squad - and his ability to score crucial goals, such as those against Luton, Accrington and Colchester, might possibly persuade Adams to take him on again - I sincerely hope so!
