    Rob Kiernan

    Didn't see a thread for him. Gone for a three month jolly out in the L2 playoff shakeup with Southend, from Wigan, can play CB or CM and has played u19 & u21 for us, he is 22 now. Watford academy player originally, turned down an extension there in '11.

    Made his Wigan debut as a 75th minute substitute this afternoon, helping them to a clean sheet against high-flying Derby. His Wigan future suddenly looks a lot brighter under his former coach at Brentford, Uwe Rosler.

    Like many Irish defenders; Kiernan's versatility could prove to be a blessing or a curse!

    Out of contract at the end of the season, he probably would have been destined for a drop down the divisions under previous managers but Rosler's appointment looks like it will have a very positive effect on his career.

    First league start for Kiernan this afternoon, at home to Watford.

    No Sean Murray in the match day squad for Watford.

    Uwe Rosler said he was: absolutely excellent - dominant & commanding & is motivated every single day.

    Also received lots of requests for him to be loaned out.

    A handful of league appearances and now Kiernan is in front of the media at every available opportunity complaining about not getting an international call up. How utterly shameless.

    What a tart.

    He can also play CM which is interesting.

    Two videos of the goal on youtube both with the goal so close to the start you miss it it you blink.

    Here is one, the mind boggles are to why someone would make a video like that!!!





    Well I guess they are filmed by fans so we should be greatfull to them for anything
    I assume that is all the footage they have rather than consigning the build up to the goal
    to the dustbin.

    Just be grateful he want to play for us!!
    It's always good to have players pushing for a place.

    He must be living on another planet if he thinks he will be called up in May. The lad hasn't made any more than a dozen appearances at any one club and about a dozen overall above 4th division level. Stability and consistency first, International honours later.

    Nice to have younger options playing at a good level though. Duffy, Hoban, Long, O'Brien, Kiernan.... Duffy is the only one I think is anywhere near getting into squads.

    Read more like enthusiasm than moaning to me.

    Paddy, I think you're missing the sarcasm in Charlie's post. The clue lies in the Richard Keogh thread!

    It's not a position we're desperate for cover in but every extra option helps. Rosler appears to be no mug so it's a good sign he has faith in Kiernan.

    There is a thin line between enthusiasm and impelling/imploring/moaning.

    There is something weird about that goal, it looks as though was an own goal, it seems to come off two players.
    Indeed I am not sure Kiernan touched the ball at all.
    But clearly (well as clear as can be made out) if you track the path of the goal back it comes off the defenders head.

    However I think Kiernan does get a glancing touch on it, but the movement of the balls not consistent with one touch
    the balls seems to 'slide' ie the position on it's inward path is not consistent with the outward path, if you see what I mean.

    Still I doubt defender will be keen to claim it, although does seem to throw his arms up in celebration!!!!!!!!!!

    And many of your posts range from enthusiasm to moaning! I await The Doc's comments on Kiernan. Another possible CB to be ridiculed!
