    can't believe this.

    i think it's because he would be under too much pressure to play Reid.

    very annoying. Stokes ahead of Clinto? pointless.

    i cant believe this. he has included steven reid and finnan when they were less fit before, and now that theyre approaching fitness he leaves them out.

    Wonder why they didnt list the full squad in that report. Wouldnt have been that difficult to complete the job? Who else is in or is it just Stokes for N Hunt and the rest as was.........ermmm..

    I wish this was a joke.

    Stokes? Steven Reid had a slim chance but Finnan is back playing regular football.

    and there are at least two weeks before the game, you would expect Reid to be back in the Blackburn 11 by then, Finnan should have another few games under his belt also.

    I think we all expected Andy and Clint to be left out again, a lot of us suspected Finnan wouldn't be called upon at this late stage either.

    But to leave out a fit again Steven Reid after an unfit Steven Reid was called up previously and the man himself has said he's fit and available for selection....baffling.

    I'm worried now that Trap feels that some sort of rift developed between them now. Unless of course Steven had another injury set back recently or something, but I'd really like an explanation on this.

    But before this gets out of hand, this is a statement from Trapattoni that he thinks the players who got him this far are good enough to make the next step.

    I've no problems with the omissions. I don't think Reid will be fit, I don't think Finnan is good enough anymore, I don't think Morrison offers anything different to Doyle/Best and since both are in the squad, why call him up. And well Andy Reid........

    I hate to say it lads, but Stephen Reid was NOT fit enough for the play off games & certainly wasn't going to get any fitter / more match practise in the next 2 weeks.

    remember, it was playing him when he wasn't 100% - against Montenegro (open to correction) - that knackered him in the first place.

    I agree in that respect, smart move by Trap. S.Reid needs to be extremely slowly introduced back into action. We'd all love him playing against France in these games with the personality he has to get on the ball and pass it which the other players Trap picks don't seem to be able to do but theres a bigger picture to look at.

    I can understand his reasoning over S. Reid, Finnan would have been handy to have in the squad at least.

    Just seen Trap on SSN. A very animated trap. He said all those players are in his mind but it's not the time to change the team now, he'll look at them all after the playoffs.

    He doesn't think Steven Reid or Finnan have enough match fitness.

    Also seems to be some sort of delay in the team sheet. it's not on rte, the fai website and sky don't have it either.
