    A couple of surprise 2nd gens to be grandfathered into the squad and this'll be TOWK tomorrow, after he's composed and posted the Ulysses of diatribes of course.





    Barring that, can't see there being any surprises in the squad, really need 6 from 6 out of these two games or else that's game over.

    Yeah events elsewhere are probably more important this time around, assuming we don't completely finish ourselves off.

    I'm surprised there isn't a bit of a hullabaloo about he who must decide... is it not D-Day on that front, if he is called up? I know he's currently injured but I don't think that's too serious.

    I would like to see a few younger names included. Especially Duffy & Cunningham perhaps even Mason, Williams etc.
    But I expect the likes of Ward, Pearce, Green & Stokes to be named...

    has to be 6 points though can never be sure. the georgia game will be hard going i expect.

    i assume this will be the huge 35 man squad that will then be 'whittled down'.

    on a personal note i'll be in brooklyn for both of these. i'm sure there's a thread on this somewhere but i couldn't find one - any tips on where to watch it?

    I want to see new faces in this squad as they are the perfect games to introduce them especially v Gibraltar. However, I will be shocked if there is even one newcomer & I expect the same old same old.

    Cunningham getting more rave reviews after Saturday there. One person even stated he's the best left back he's seen at Preston. Given the dearth of options in his position (I don't think Brady is the long term solution, too effective further forward) then it'd be a shame if he weren't selected. Or maybe I'm reading too much into a couple of games back at Championship.

    Eunan O'Kane makes his first Premier League start tonight for Bournemouth away to Liverpool. Will it be enough to see him named? I'm assuming it'll be the usual process; preliminary squad before a refined final squad?

    O'Kane put in a fantastic shift......covered so much ground and was one of the better performers in a very good Bournemouth Team performance

    Didnt look out of place at Anfield at all tonight...really good game for him

    O'Kane has done enough last night. Rooney and Judge also included. Nice to see Greg Cunningham in there too.

    McCarthy, Hendrick, Whelan, O'Kane, McGeady, McClean, Brady, Meyler, Hoolahan,

    Keane, Long, Doyle, Walters, Murphy


    Can't see going any lower than a 26 man squad and that'll be the squad, far as I can see. Pity he didn't take the token gesture of the likes of Richie Towell in there at least as part of the provisional squad.

    Was hoping there would be a real surprise or two but I suppose I should learn my lesson & never get too excited where the FAI are concerned. Same old same old lazy squad effort.

    There is an update of sorts from John Fallon in the Irish Independent on a major ongoing talking point.

    Ya, the player in question is still humming & hawing about who to play for. He had more than enough time to make a decision & at this stage I think he is really taking the mickey.

    O'Neill said in the press conference a decision will be made "shortly"/"soon" and is "worth waiting for" after having had "fruitful" discussions with the pair. I dunno how soon that means, but if it's not by the end of September, I don't think I can defend someone going back on their stated word.
