    why don't you ask him via Twitter and come back to us if you don't like his answer? In the meantime just accept it for what it is.

    The awkward moment when Cyrus Christie realises Seamie Coleman is shortlisted for the Ballon d'Or and Jon Flanagan is England's new right back.

    Edit- always thought he was from Palmerstown. Turns out Luton. Anyway I think your concerns at Christie's motivation are OTT.
    Even the likes of Simon Cox and Paul Green - in a similar boat eligibility-wise and ignorantly maligned by some in terms of their commitment - have never once huffed or thrown their toys out of the pram when they've missed out on the post-preliminary squad refinement. They are always available for (re-)selection, whether they've made earlier squads or not. Why someone's first reaction would be to rhetorically assume with suggestive "questioning" that the case might be any different with Christie, I don't know. So, nothing natural or inevitable about such a question at all; just more silly suspicion and thinly-veiled hostility in order to stir some sh*te...

    You have come up with a whole new angle to aggravate people. Christie has gone and organised a passport to represent us. He is an Irish player now. Our gain, someone's else's loss IMO. if you are implying that he is somehow a mercenary, he is our mercenary and that is good enough for me.

    He passes the Gastric Band. Which shows that the band isn't effective mind and that a doctor should be summoned.

    There we go with the belligerence again.

    Christie said a major part of his reasoning to declare for Ireland was that there wasn't many players ahead of him in the pecking order, he had a great chance of game time and he has been fast tracked into a competitive squad. He emphasised this, not me. Simon Cox and Paul Green didn't emphasise this when they were selected so I have no clue why you are bringing them up other than to "stir some ****e" as you eloquently put it.

    It seemed a valid hypothesis on my part.

    He seems a fit looking lad but he needs to learn to lace his boots up properly.
    Also he needs some new kit he seems to have out grown that one.

    Excellent debut. Very impressed with him. If he can play just as good at LB then we are sorted.

    Really like the look of this lad. He was brilliant in possession, unruffled throughout and not only stopped many an attack but turned it into an attacking opportunity for us.
    While we have Coleman at right back, I would like to see MON use Christie as a center back, given our lack of talent there.
    A back four containing Coleman at right back, JOS and Christie in the middle and my new favorite for the left back position (despite a brilliant performance there by R Brady) being James McLean. Something to get excited about ahead of the long winter months.

    All right lads. He's had one cap. Lets get him to 10 at his natural position before trying him here, there or anywhere else.

    He was impressive tonight but confidence is important for a young lad getting his first taste of the big time. A good start but he still has silly mistakes to make.

    Paul hasn't even compared him to a GAA player yet, or pointed out how he will one day soon give away a penalty

    Disagree. We should play him in a different position in every game. And then when he's played in all of them we should invent new formations.

    Christie right back, Coleman right midfield. I'd like to see that tried out. Get Coleman up where he can be a real goal threat with a (hopefully) solid right back behind him.

    Would love to see him tried out at left back. Then we could have Coleman RB, Christie LB, McGeady RW and Brady LW. Excellent attacking threat there.

    You really mustn't watch many Ireland games, and there is no excuse for not watching the ones in America in the summer!

    A bit of perspective please. Christie looked good but it's very early days, way too many examples of great white hopes in the past. McClean is nowhere near good enough for LB, what he does best is puts his head down and runs at people, a bit headless, thats exactly what you dont want in a LB.

    Don't watch many Ireland games??
    My first 'watched' game was in 1972. First attended game was a year later. Missed perhaps two since then.
    McLean has all the attributes for a decent left back, admittedly it would take some adjusting on his part, but he is head and shoulders above Ward for the position. McLean has pace, an eye for a tackle and he can put his head down and run as you say. Hopefully that would be as an overlapping left back. He has far more about him than Stephen Ward. Having said that, Brady had an excellent game in that position yesterday, but he has far more to offer in a forward role.
