    Wait... What... Why!!?? His career has been drifting badly: Man City to Blackburn to Oldham to Kilmarnock to Shamrock Rovers (with a half-decent loan spell at the smallest Eredivisie side). I know none of the following options are outstanding but surely they have more pedigree than Byrne:
    1. McGeady - tearing it up for Sunderland in League One (should really be in the Championship) and we know what he can do against Georgia.
    2. Shaun Williams, Ryan Manning and Richie Towell - all playing regularly in the Championship
    3. Jake Mulraney and Daryl Horgan - SPL regulars this season
    4. Cyrus Christie - Premier League right-back, could probably be moved to a more advanced midfield role if required

    I think it's a great move bringing in Byrne and Cullen. They are both talented young footballers.

    Whatever mistakes he has made Byrne probably has the talent. If he has that everything else can worked on over time, and time is on his side.

    Wes Hoolahan was home playing for Shels at his age. We could have gained so much by involving him years earlier than we did.

    Great to see him included in the squad, and josh cullen too, both of which can get the ball down and play.

    With my mindset probably impacted by his past experiences, I think it's too early for him. He has very little even evidence in our league.

    Can't understand how he wasn't in the extended squad yet passes out the 4 or 5 guys who were.

    Manager watched him. He put in one of the most outstanding individual performances I've ever seen in the League of Ireland. Manager added him to squad. He displayed the type of vision and range of passing that tends to be invaluable at unlocking teams with 11 behind the ball. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets some game time tomorrow.

    same answer. Mick saw both players after the first squad was announced. I think he saw Cullen twice. I'm excited by both call ups.

    Georgia are a bit different to what he will face in the LOI. Lets see vision is vision but its all relative to who has it with you and who sees it against you.

    Always felt reid and keane had good vision, few spotted keanes runs, most often wondered why he was making the wrong runs - yes he did sometimes but others he wasnt waiting for that pass that no one could play into him.

    I think he won't be far off a run tomorrow.

    And he's managed to charm the media this week. David Sneyd, Ken Earley and Richard Barrett have all swooned over his entrance to the press conference the other day when he shook the hand of all of the journalists and introduced himself. They all spoke glowingly of him too - Sneyd and Dion Fanning were on the Second Captains podcast and seemed to have lapped up what he had to say.

    He spoke quite well also. I'm sure that doesn't mean he has addressed all of his behavioural issues but hopefully he is on the right track.
