    Not a 2nd choice team at all, full of their stars. Arguably their strongest XI they have out there.

    Unsurprisingly he didn't get on, but it's still a very promising sign!

    Thank you. Very promising as you say. We have a tough 19s group for first round of qualifiers in November with Switzerland and Austria so would be good to have another attacking option with no parrott or idah likely to be involved you would imagine

    That is really impressive alright. I had it in my head that he was a defender.

    It’s a strong team. Four of the starting 11 played for Switzerland against us last month (Sommer, Zakaria, Elvedi, Embolo). Ginter and Kramer won the World Cup with Germany. Then there’s Lilian Thuram’s son who’s supposed to be a real talent and Florian Neuhaus who was excellent when Germany’s U21s beat us 6-0 a year ago in Tallaght. Plea is a French international who cost Borussia over £20m. The other two lads are seasoned internationals. Hermann on the bench is a good player too.

    Very good sign for Conor. Although their captain is due back from a broken leg soon, so that might move him down the pecking order.

    Looking forward to seeing him playing for the 19s. What I've seen and heard, he's more of an attacking midfielder than a striker but still.

    I'd have Idah with the 19s in November along with Bazunu and Ledwidge. Plenty of players at 21s up top. Front three of Obafemi, Connolly and Parrott with Ronan behind and Afolabi off the bench. Plus, you call up someone else to the 21s who might deserve it – McAuley or Hale or whoever (Drinan, O’Connor, Grant, Keena, Mahdy, Reghba, Kayode).


    Can’t think of any prolific strikers at 19s except for Ryan Cassidy who if I remember correctly had a bad injury towards the end of last season and is only back fit recently… Would be a much better squad with Idah there...

    Noss will be the oldest player in the Under 19 squad if he's called up. He was born on January 1st, 2001, which is the cut off date for the 2020 under 19 championships

    4 nil up at half time, no better time to give him a run out.

    Nine players allowed on the bench in the Bundesliga, maybe something the EPL should consider as it would give opportunities to give younger players development game time in situations like this where the game is over as a contest by the hour mark.

    We'd probably have seen the likes of Parrott and Kilkenny in the Premier League by now if nine were allowed in England.

    No game time for Noss today unfortunately.

    The U19s have two games in Sligo next week - haven't seen any mention of a squad being named. Wonder will Noss be involved?

    I saw it mentioned on twitter that he was joining up with U19 squad yes.

    He was in a recent training squad.

    I see there’s a lad called Conor Gallagher playing midfield for Charlton. Has played underage for England through the grades but surely must have Irish blood with a name like that.

    Ireland & Scotland. Was part of the England U17 side that won something a couple of years back.

    Bit more here
    Surprised there isn't more noise about his options, but maybe that tells its own story.

    Anyone know if Man City’s Thomas Doyle is eligible for us?

    He’s an England youth international though looks to have hardly been involved for them at underage level — seemed to fit right in tonight for City vs Southampton & showed a good range of passing.

    He is the grandson of Glyn Pardoe & Mike Doyle — who both played for Man City & England.

    I imagine given his career trajectory and his family’s England connections he will be inclined to stick with them either way, but if I were involved with the FAI I’d make some calls because he looks quality.

    I remember Mike Doyle and Pardoe playing for City in the 70,'s. Never recall Mike having any connections with Ireland. I think it would be a little over the top for the FAI to approach this lad

    Shane Long asked him about his Irish connections after a game.
