    Looks like only one went on to represent Spain at full international level Thiago Alcāntara. Two of ours got full international caps in Brady and Cunningham.
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    Just cracked the angle of post and bar with a worldie from 20 yards, so unlucky. 4-3 down, 13 to go in extra time.

    Fantastic effort... Bale-esque.

    He and Crowley both did well, and against better players than we typically come up against in international qualifiers.

    Not knocking them or anything but it's still a pretty major step up to international football. Small teams perform above themselves against the top sides in cup competitions all the time. They've nothing to lose and play with a freedom and enthusiasm. It's a different ball game trying to make a difference at international level, even in a slugfest against likes of Georgia, who wouldn't have players of Everton's quality overall. I wouldn't mind having a look at Hourihane all the same (obviously Crowley even more so but that's hardly going to happen any time soon, if ever).

    Goals below (unfortunately doesn't include Hourihane's shot off the bar). Crowley's goal was really expertly taken. The €50m man Stones didn't cover himself in glory for the opener!

    Was at Millwall - Barnsley last week and Crowley was involved in everything positive from Barnsley. The only black mark against him was he was pushed off the ball fairly easily, but he's only just turned 18 and still very slight build.

    Looking at him last night, Hourihane looks like he'd be comfortable playing Premier League football and you'd hope some managers at least at Championship level were watching. Wilkinson looks to have something about him too, despite a bad miss at 5-3 that could have made it a game again.

    Goal! Blackpool 0, Barnsley 1. Conor Hourihane (Barnsley) right footed shot from the centre of the box to the bottom left corner. Assisted by Marley Watkins.

    Scored a 95th minute equaliser for Barnsley at home to Sheffield United today. I just happened to be on the Paddy Power app around the 88th minute and saw it was 8/1 for a draw. I was tempted to go all Tricky on it but unfortunately left it off Hourihan had missed a penalty earlier as well, the reporter said "some penalties are missed, but this penalty was saved", I presume meaning there was little wrong with the strike but the keeper made a very good save.

    It was carefully placed / side-footed just inside the post but lacking any pace. Keeper read it well and got across very well. Good save but the kick lacked a bit of conviction, unusually for such a good ball striker.

    His ball striking was very evident in injury time, an absolute bullet from 20 yards, though a crowded box. Quality strike. He went mental celebrating it too, as if he was desperately relieved his penalty miss wasn't too costly.

    A 95th minute equaliser in a derby game worth going mental for anyway but that would have definitely added to it!

    Scored last night to help secure a Wembley date against Oxford in the final of the Football League Trophy. The tie ended up going to a penalty shoot-out, in which Hourihane converted his, after two 1-1 draws. This supporter was particularly impressed.

    The final takes place on Sunday, 3rd April at 14:30.

    Playing championship next season, should be another good option to our midfield options. we're getting overloaded with midfielders right now. a few strikers coming on board would be good.

    Decent start to his Championship level career, from a personal point of view at least, with a goal in Barnsley's 4-2 defeat at Ipswich
