    Austria V Republic of Ireland - Tuesday, 10th September 2013 - World Cup 14 Qualifier

    I suppose someone might as well bother setting up a thread for this one...

    Walters sat out training today and Stephen Quinn has been called into the squad to replace the injured Whelan: http://www.rte.ie/sport/soccer/inter...land-training/

    With Ireland needing a win, will we see some version of the Paris approach? Even a failing one would be preferable to the way that Ireland went about their business for the last hour against Sweden.

    It would be nice if McClean, McCarthy or Coleman broke their scoring duck on Tues. Hopefully there'll be some drama in Astana beforehand to match Armenia tonking Slovakia in last campaign.

    Perhaps not; Trap's priority now appears to be ensuring we don't finish below third: http://www.independent.ie/sport/socc...-29561552.html

    Why? He was very successful in the game and is obviously highly-regarded in Austria. Plus, Arnold-Schwarzenegger-Stadion is much too long, even if Sturm Graz did go with him for a few years...

    You wouldn't happen to be thinking of a certain politically-radical painter, would you?

    Predictions for the team anybody?

    Will he go for Paul Green or Wes?

    Will the Trap accept Walters on the wing is as ineffective as sticking Cox on the wing?

    I think he will bring wes in for whelan, clark for dunne, brady for walters and pilks for mcclean.

    Tardelli and himself seem to like S Quinn, wouldn't surprise me if he was in for Whelan instead.
    Really makes a mockery of this player standby mularky when you have Quinn leapfrogging the "on standby" Meyler and being parachuted into squad.

    That would be interesting. Maybe even robbie starting on the bench and quinn and wes making up the 3 to match up austria.

    I can't see McClean being dropped, unless Trap has decided his mistake was the crucial one for the first goal. Even so, it would be harsh because I think he did well and we'll need his enthusiasm to drive us on in Vienna. I think it'll be Green for Whelan, Clark for Dunne and possibly Pilkington for Walters, depending on the latter's fitness.

    I thought that was odd too. If anything, Meyler is in the same mould as Whelan in that he's not great on the ball but will do a thoroughly disciplined job whereas Quinn is more in the McCarthy mould.

    McClean injured? Nothing surprises me any more with Traps team selection but he was one of the better players on Friday can see no reason whatsoever for swapping Mclean for Pilks.

    EDIT: Sorry jbyrne - is that official?
    I thought you were off the drink Ronnie?

    It looks official.

    Forde,
    Coleman, O'Shea, Dunne, Wilson;
    Walters, Green, McCarthy, Pilkington;
    Keane, Long

    Walters must be thin as a rake by now.
    I haven't a clue about Pilkington, have hardly seen him play, but how did he jump ahead of Brady in Trap's psyche test?
