    Obafemi was having a similar fantasy whilst training for us it was almost implied.

    Not sure I have any reason to doubt MON's statement regarding Kelly. When he was initially called up he was one of the most promising young players in the Championship so there was a real possibility that England could come knocking on his door in the not too distant future. Since then his career has stalled, he's 2 years older and with him playing in Holland it is very unlikely that he will ever get an England call. Why not throw his lot in with us now?

    He clearly has thrown his lot in?

    I know - the question was why wouldn't he throw it in when his other options are limited.

    I agree with this

    I suspect O'Neill had his fingers burned by Rice & Grealish and in his heart was judging every young English born player who missed a squad by their sins.

    Clean slate. If he gets a chance to show he merits a place in the squad we should call him up. If it's a bluff we'll soon know.

    90 minutes for Liam today in a 1-1 draw at home to Utrecht. Kelly and Crowley sitting on their hands while Switzerland pass around Jeff Hendrick?

    It's great that Kelly has finally played a match but it probably won't be enough to elevate him straight into our starting line-up, no.

    Have to agree with this statement. I am hoping Hendrick doesn't play against the Swiss. He shows no authority in the middle of the park. Pity about Crowley and Kelly

    My comment was a bit blasé. I think that Hendrick should be dropped more than I think Crowley or Kelly deserves a start.

    Jeff and Robbie Brady have not played well in three years. I guess Brady is now finally dropped for Robinson. But Jeff will start against the swiss

    Hendrick will start, 100%. He was good in the home game against Georgia I thought. He should never be used in a two man midfield and definitely not with Hourihane as his partner.

    Not getting a look in at Feyenoord really. He's usually an unused sub but wasn't even in the squad for their win over Porto last night.

    Jaap Stam has resigned as Feyenoord manager - https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/50214732

    On the face of it would probably seem like bad news for Kelly, but then he wasn't really getting a look-in anyway so hopefully he can impress the new manager instead.

    Definitely not with Hourihane and definitely not with Whelan and definitely not with several other candidates. Bottom line is Hendrick had a decent game against Georgia as you point out, but has played very poorly since.
    That appears to be the norm for Ireland. You are allowed to have one good game in every seven or eight outings and that is enough for you to retain your place. I would not start Hendrick against Denmark - replace him with McCarthy despite his lack of playing time. Bring in Brady too. Mick really has to get his team selection right for this one - there is no room for error.

    Well said, it would appear very short sighted now to have been pushing the hendrick has to start thing. Its like someone went and got a 5 minute montage of hendricks best bits for Ireland and decided well thats that then this guy is unplayable.

    Perhaps thats what every manager sees of McClean when they come into the job too.

    Except nobody was pushing the Hendrick "has" to start thing, bar maybe Mick himself. I said Hendrick "will" start... and I was right. And he'll start again against Denmark.

    Now, if somebody had predicted he'd never play in the Premier League, that would have been short-sighted.

    Gonna resist a very tempting pun and just say Dick Advocate has taken over at Feyenoord - https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/50241789
