    Celtic has become a graveyard for Irish players. I wouldn't wish it on any of them.
    Hello, hello? What's going on? What's all this shouting, we'll have no trouble here!

    Celtic have a big enough squad as it is - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celtic...rst-team_squad - whoever the new manager is (Howe?) will have to trim the first team numbers

    Must be so frustrating for Robbie Brady, he's clearly Premier League quality but just can't stay fit. I'm sure some Championship team will take a chance on him, given his age, but I really hope he doesn't end up having to play in Scotland.

    Brady was undeniably PL quality until that savage 2017 knee injury. But not since, only glimpses punctuated with many setbacks. Any analysis of his career will lean heavily on the what-might-have-been. Like you, I hope the retro won't have an SPFL chapter.

    Should try to go to Italy honestly, mid table Serie A. Less physical, slower pace. A league where technical skill is valued over athleticism.

    A Championship side would happily sign him but will possibly be even more gruelling physically than the Prem. I appreciate it’s a big life change but if he’s willing to do it, could prolong his career at top level. Maybe Spain or Portugal other possibilities.

    Would the vast majority of european clubs have any idea who he is. It would not exactly be a media bonanza. Usually european clubs would like to get a media buzz from signing some foreigner.

    I think he'd just get lost at Celtic to be honest. Brady is one of a few players that I think a lot of our support overrate based on things he did five or six years ago. Shane Long is another, but whereas its age catching up with Long now, it's the injuries that have ruined Brady. He probably would suit a continental team but we'd be talking about a bottom half Serie A side or a mid rank Ligue 1 team, not one of the big hitters.

    Like most Irish players he'll probably end up staying in the UK, somewhere like Birmingham City or Sheffield Wednesday would be more likely. Conor Hourihane has shown how far being good on set pieces and not much else can get you in the Championship.

    We're not going to have too many players playing Premier League next season as things stand unfortunately.

    Italy probably the only country in Europe where they could create a bit of a buzz around him, angling it as the guy who scored against Italy in Euro 2016

    A fairly generic summation of Irish footballers and Irish supporters.
