    Great news about Linehan. So great to see players from Meath now beginning to emerge.

    Sheffield United have had 2 bids to bring Lenihan back to the Championship rejected. Sky Sports were reporting the other day that a third one had been rejected but I can't find a link.

    And the results of this poll suggest he's very highly rated with 82% of voting fans saying he shouldn't be sold as he's the club's future.

    Finally returned from injury, playing just over an hour for Blackburn's U23s - hopefully he can push on and get back to the Championship, either with or without Rovers: https://www.rovers.co.uk/news/2018/f...rovers-u23s-1/

    First start for the Blackburn senior squad since his return from injury as they beat Bury 2-0 to climb to the top of League One: http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/43027552
    Looking more like he and Derrick Williams will be returning to The Championship next season so I hope MONKEANO are keeping an eye on their progress. Quick question: if Blackburn do indeed secure promotion, should Lenihan and/or Williams be given a shot in the June friendlies? After all, they both are capable of playing at Championship level at least, and would be doing so next year.

    Lenihan finished an injury-hit season on a high with the opening goal for Blackburn yesterday: https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/43931508. Will be interesting to see if he can impress in upcoming friendlies - Liam Kelly's hesitancy to commit does leave an opening for a young midfielder to take advantage of

    Sidenote - Based on the friendly against Turkey MON seems to be interested in looking at 3-5-2 as a formation option again, in spite of the debacle against Mexico when Richard Keogh got run ragged by the Mexican left-winger and Cyrus Christie was too far up the pitch to help - the emergence of Rice and Long as EPL regulars should help with that, though. If so, Derrick Williams could provide a good option on the left side of the defensive trio as he has played there regularly (at least as back-up anyway).

    Ireland defender Darragh Lenihan named man-of-the-match as Blackburn sink Millwall https://the42.ie/4437407

    Bossed it for Blackburn yesterday. MON seemed unwilling to give Browne and Egan competitive opportunities after early poor friendly showings. Lenihan could have been subjected to similar treatment after his NI showing. These lads will appreciate a clean slate from Mick and the chance to show why they are some of the most highly rated young players in the Championship (Egan pushing on more slightly).

    He was very poor against the north. Ponderous on the ball and sloppy in possession. His positioning was all over the place and he looked cumbersome. He looked like he was carrying extra timber was he coming back from injury at that stage? From a lad who was a defensive midfielder and converted to centre half you would hope he has more football ability in his locker and an ability to improve his mobility

    Can't think of any positive from the game with the North so harsh judging a novice at senior level on that one game. If Lenihan keeps performing for his club, he is one of 3 to 4 viable choices to partner Duffy in the centre.

    Has good prowess from setpieces - headed one corner just over against Newcastle before scoring from another with a thunderous header

    Put him centre half with Duffy and play for corners!

    Got the opener against Swansea today. With Egan, and maybe Keogh, going up to the EPL next season, Lenihan is probably down the pecking order a little (more so if Jimmy Dunne can break into the Burnley first team). But he is playing regularly for Blackburn so he is playing at a decent level should we need back-up in a pinch so Mick should keep an eye on him - might even be worth his while bringing him to that training camp in Portugal: https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/48081781

    Scored the winner today against QPR, his second goal in two games. Masterson looks like he's settling into first-team football and Olamide Shodipo came on as a late sub: https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/51185377

    3 in 5 now for Blackburn. Only 25 and captaining a team on the fringe of the playoffs. Mowbray is a good man to learn off too in his position. Hopefully will keep progressing.

    Man of the match - Darragh Lenihan

    Sky Sports' Lee Hendrie
    "Blackburn captain Darragh Lenihan has led by example and has not put a foot wrong. It's been one of those games where we have not seen enough of the creative threat but Lenihan has shone."

    if this guy at 26 doesnt get a move, this window...real class very similar to Egan., Both classy liberos
