    Waiting on Diggs & Kingdom to tell us starting XI.

    Meyler for O'Dowda the only change?

    If Meylser comes on in for O'Dowda, are we not losing out on an attacking option in a game we need to win? Is the thinking that Hendrick would push further up?

    I think Long may come in for Murphy.

    Is every one fully fit and raring to go . The lads did a lot of defending the last day . Maybe not so much running as we used only one third of the Pitch most of the time . Maybe that was the tactic ; Tire out the Danish . Which ever team recovers better after the quick turn around may have an advantage .

    Complete concentration on defence may have been tiring for our players . Not actually joking here .

    Rob Elliot has returned to England due to a family bereavement. Colin Doyle is expected to step in. - https://www.rte.ie/sport/soccer/2017...y-bereavement/

    Yes, but I think that would have probably been the case in Copenhagen too only for Meyler's suspension. I forgot about Long starting ahead of Murphy, could definitely see that happening, and hope it does.

    I'd love if he found a way of getting Hoolahan into the starting line-up too, but it would probably mean doing something a bit unlikely like dropping Ward or Brady.

    Long will give Denmark something to think about. Murphy was ineffective both in Cardiff and Copenhagen. He's a good player but isn't a hold-up man / lone striker capable of imposing himself if we don't have much ball.

    I think Wes will play for 60 mins, O'Dowda or McGeady to come on instread

    -------Randolph
    Christie Duffy Clark Ward
    -------Meyler Arter
    ----McClean Hoolahan Brady
    ---------Long

    I like that team Stutts but would swap McClean and Brady.

    We have to start Wes to get the desired result. We need to be on the front foot because if we donít score we are hoping for penalties (at best). If they score we are ****ed bar us somehow finding our shooting boots.

    Actually Iíd probably prefer to see Hendrick start over Brady.

    I think he struggled on Saturday. But I think he's an O'Neill favourite alright. I'd pick an on form Hendrick all the time.

    Anyway, Brady needs to sort out his deliveries. V poor and not for the first time on Saturday.

    Is there merit in bringing Wes on for the last 30 rather than starting him?

    My biggest reservation with him starting is that should he and the team prove ineffective for the first hour we have bugger all much of a plan-B outside of what we did on Saturday.

    O'Neill will definitely see merit in it I think. And you make a good point about the Plan B. It was a bit depressing against Serbia, a goal down and a man up but Hoolahan already called ashore and nothing on the bench to make the desired impact.

    I think Hendrick did fine on Saturday, as part of a defensive unit in his more withdrawn role. The biggest compliment I can pay him is Whelan wasn't missed one bit.

    Sorry if this has been discussed but the Danish players seem to think the pitch was terrible and that they will be much better off at Aviva.

    Plus I think against a tiring Danish side he could prove a nightmare. See Lille...

    That was a horror show.

    It has been a long-term complaint about the Parken. Even Daddy Schmeichel brought it up on OTB that that it was like that back in 1993 when it opened and has never really been good.

    Why don't they fix it? Is it BC a bad pitch slows the opposing side down as well?

    No idea. I think they have repeatedly.

    It used to host speedway. So that can't have helped either.
