    I wonder if Anthony O'Connor might be worth taking a look at at some stage too. Only 24 and has done well wherever he has gone. Doesn't have his own thread though so...until then...probably not.

    He's in with a chance so!

    this really made me laugh. Description of his goal v Celtic tonight...



    GOAL Aberdeen 1-3 Celtic (Hayes)

    Posted at
    12 mins




    Och, this is ridiculous! Jonny Hayes reminds us why he was nominated by his fellow professionals as a potential player of the year. The little Irishman curls in a heavenly sweet shot that has Craig Gordon flapping about like a seagull near a chip shop. What a goal! What a crazy start to a football game!

  4. Thanks From:

    Really good goal alright. I've not paid Hayes enough attention, but he seems to be one of Aberdeen's star performers this season and I thought he was one of the few players who actually stood out for us against Iceland.

    Into double figures for the season, 9 in the league and 1 in other competitions.

    Have been impressed with the way he stepped up to Intl football.

    Maybe he will get a big move this summer, though if Aberdeen get a bye in to the group stages of European competition he may stay in any regard.

    Has just given Aberdeen an early lead against Celtic in the Scottish Cup Final. Good take from a corner which Celtic seemed to be asleep for.

    Armstrong has just equalised straight away for Celtic.

    Agreed.

    Lovely ball to McLean when the game was level and McLean out-ran the ball. Some chance.

    McClean, Brady, Hayes, McGeady...

    Some amount of options we have for the wide positions.

    Pilkington's not too bad either.

    Needs to leave Aberdeen and play against proper players on a regular basis before one can really judge him.

    The Sky cameras showed Brendan Rodgers saying more than a few words to Hayes after the match. He's probably a tad old to be a Rodgers signing.

    I remember seeing Hayes on the wing for Ireland under 19s in Turners Cross. Randolph in goals. Stokes up front with Billy Clarke. Gibson in midfield. I thought Hayes compared really well to the lads who have gone onto PL level.

    Cardiff were in for him most recently. You don't often see players go direct to the PL from SPL unless they're a young prospect. 29 year olds don't tend to get a punt taken on them by PL clubs. It dawned on me that Derek McInnes, the Aberdeen manager, has been heavily linked with the vacant Sunderland job. That's a big club and if he brought Hayes with him it would be the next best thing to a PL move.

    Anthony O'Connor came on to try and stifle Tom Rogic. He was badly exposed for pace by Rogic for his match-winning goal I thought.

    And Horgan?
    But looking forward to June 11, which is only two weeks away now, the critical need is at right back and center forward.
    Do you put O'Shea and Duffy at center back and Richard Keogh at right back. Or do you opt for Andy Boyle or Kevin Long?
    Center forward. If MON is going with Walters and Murphy then it will tell you right away that it's route one all the way.
    That would mean a lot of lost possession and a lot of hopeful long balls.
    Would rather see us keep it on the floor via Brady, Hool, McGeady etc.

    Two friendlies beforehand all of a sudden become important for developing players at these positions and tactics.

    I'd be shocked if O'Neill went with anybody other than Christie at right back.

    Mark

    Forgot about Horgan. We're stacked in those positions.

    I wouldn't play Walters and Murphy up front or even in the same team.

    Ideally it would be one of them and Hoolahan.

    Though, Hoolahan slipped Walters clean through second half against Austria and he couldn't take advantage, so you have to weigh up whether playing someone like Wes will result in tangible benefits if we don't have someone with Long's pace to take advantage of his passes and open up space for other players.

    I thought we played some of our most dire football against Scotland in Dublin.

    Murphy and Walters up front and two other players well into their thirties in midfield.

    It was legless, pondering stuff.

    I think even it he isn't putting people in on goal at all, you play him to try to set up sustained possession in the middle third and try to nurture vital periods of retained ball, otherwise you are looking at lower percentage ball with higher turnover all night. Having it can also draw the foul in a good delivery area to play to the two big lads strengths.

    Exactly. And even in that Scotland game, I seem to remember Hoolahan slipping Murphy in on goal for what should have been the winner.
