    His replacement fared no better from twelve yards against Man U earlier.

    It is being reported that Long is a "major doubt" for the Austria game and is to have the foot injury he picked up against Middlesbrough assessed today: http://www.independent.ie/sport/socc...-35728624.html

    Long missed Southampton's 0-0 draw with Manchester United last night after he picked up a foot injury against Middlesbrough last weekend and the Irish Daily Star has reported the frontman will see a specialist today to assess the damage.

    Walters is 34 soon and is worn down by injuries - I can't remember the last time he started back to back games. Rooney is 29 and uncapped, I would question if he is good enough for this level. McGoldrick is 29 and doesn't appear able to adjust to the pace of Intl football. Doyle is 34 soon and doesn't possess a threat at this level anymore. Murphy is 34 and is probably the best of our forward options, yet the oldest.

    What has O'Neill got to lose by calling up Sheridan. Has he even went to a game in Poland yet? What is he getting paid to do?

    There's O'Brien, there's Madden and there's Maguire too.

    They're not Premier League caliber players but the situation is getting untenable.

    This is a perfect opportunity to call up someone like Sheridan where you have players together for two weeks and we have games in America that first team players like Walters won't be playing in.

    Why would you deliberately limit the amount of forward options we have, such was the case against Iceland when we had, what two strikers available for the match?

    Walters started consecutive games against Man City, Chelsea and Leicester in March. If you can't remember that far back, see a doctor.

    That's two months in fairness. I think he gets through most games with painkilling injections.

    still, see a doctor if memory loss persists.
    I'll need evidence of these painkillers in the next 24 hours

    Walters, who is now preparing for Ireland's World Cup qualifier against Wales in Dublin on Friday, was sidelined after knee surgery to repair damage originally dating back some seven months.

    “The knee is extremely good now," reports the 33 year-old crowd favourite. “I actually think I did it on the last day of last season against West Ham.

    “Then I tore my Achilles in the summer at the Euros. I came back for pre-season, but didn't play a lot of games and even at the start of the season I didn't play a lot.

    “It's been a stop-start year with various things. When I did play it was taking longer and longer to recover, then it ballooned after the Liverpool game (December 26) and Watford (January 3) and I had to go and have a procedure done.

    “It's all sorted now. It took time coming back to make sure it was completely right. It was a week, 10 days, before the operation, then probably seven weeks after the operation and it feels really good."

    I can't find the specific article where he mentioned painkilling objections but I think this article shows the gravity of the situation re: his injury problems over the last 12 months.

    I think it's been well established by now that it wasn't the perfect opportunity to call up Sheridan, even if O'Neill was willing, given his club commitments.

    Anyway, that's the Shane Long, Kevin Long and Marc Wilson threads all hijacked with basically the same discussion. Surely the squad announcement thread would have made more sense for these grievances.

    Not going to fall for it.

    At the risk of another thread going off-track, John Fallon has a new article on Long's absence: http://www.independent.ie/sport/soccer/international-soccer/shane-longs-injury-a-blow-for-austria-showdown-35735671.html

    "Shane Long is unlucky with his broken metatarsal, but we will see him next season," Southampton manager Claude Puel said yesterday, confirming his absence from tomorrow's concluding Premier League fixture against Stoke City.
    Interesting that Puel seems to confirm both he and Long will remain at Southampton next season.
