    Back in the starting line up today for Burnley away to Leicester. Looks like he's playing right midfield, with Hendrick in the middle.

    Brady would be an improvement on the left or even in the 8 position if he got some fitness and form.

    Played left midfield. Didn’t get up to much. Hasn’t played a lot of football over last couple of seasons and from what I saw today he did nothing to force Mick’s hand about a recall. Hopefully he can get more game time in the coming weeks and make a compelling case to be brought in for the Denmark game.

    Replaced Hendrick after 84 minutes yesterday and got credited with assists for both of Burnley's consolation goals: https://www.premierleague.com/match/46697 - let's hope he gets some more time over the next couple of weeks

    He didn't do much in each of those assists in truth!

    It's a little harsh maybe. He showed nice control and calmness with tody little balls for the assists. What he has is a composure in the middle of the pitch that most of our players dont have. Should definitely be on bench as an attacking option

    I'd be inclined to pick him and hope he has another lille performance. I was just trying to say that there are assists like a lovely through ball or a pull back, and assists like being the last player to touch the ball before a long range deflected shot. Brady's were more of the latter variety on Saturday.

    In as much as he happened to have the ball just before they scored kind of assist.

    I'm a Brady fan but he really hasn't been up to much the past two seasons. I'm not writing him off and I know he's had a bad run of injuries -- but I understand why Mick has been leaving him out. One thing I will say is that given set pieces are so important to us, we really need to have one of Brady or Hourihane on the pitch at all times. Wasn't keen on Mick leaving Hourihane out of the starting lineup for the Swiss match. Having Whelan take corners for example made them a hell of a lot less dangerous.

    He has enough quality to come good again if he can get fitness and a run of games. Still 27.
