    Rep of Ireland v Oman - Wednesday, 31st August 2016 - Friendly

    What are we thinking for tomorrow night? That squad could really have done with an Egan, Cunningham or Doherty alright to freshen things up. I don't think there's anything to be learned from playing McShane or Pearce, only to prevent others from picking up knocks. I suppose they're only emergency cover at this stage, especially McShane. Probably worth noting that Pearce is still only 27. Maybe Keogh and Clark could do with a game together as that hasn't been the pairing since the playoffs, when they both performed well. Long could do with a goal but we could definitely do without losing him to injury, and I think he sat out training either today or yesterday with something minor.

    Is it on TV? I can't see it listed on SKY or Premier Sports in the UK.

    Oman played both Cork and Limerick in friendlies, and drew 1-1 and 2-2.

    I don't know how close they were to their first team when they played Limerick, but if it was anywhere close, Ireland should put about 20 goals past them.

    So you're predicting a 1-0 win for us.

    Does anyone have a good work-filter-friendly streaming link for the match tonight?

    My work PC is blocking Firstrowsports, sadly...

    Is Brady centre-half?

    Sorry, I'm a stickler for tradition. 2 = right-back, 3 = left-back, 4 and 5 = centre-backs.


    Best guess -

    ----------- Westwood ------------
    Christie - Wilson - Clark - Brady
    ---- Arter - Whelan - Quinn ----
    Long -------Keane ------- Walters

    It's on Premier Sports alright by the way.

    There will be no John O'Flynn on the pitch tonight though, and His presence will be missed.

    Ah, that was inevitable really. Couldn't begrudge him that goal. What a way to get it too, top class.

    Would be a great goal to finish his international career on, he may well get another, I
    was going to back a 7-0 scoreline but Walters scored before I got in on so I pumped it
    up to 8-0 but I think that is stretching it a goal too much.

    Could beat the Gibraltar 7-0 here, given we've a couple of creative fellas to go on yet maybe and I'm half dreading seeing these guys when they're tired! What's our record win again? 8-0 v Malta is in my head, I presume it's there for a reason!

    Lovely goal by Keane.

    Would it not make more sense bringing Murphy on now so he can get off the mark and go into the Serbia game with some renewed confidence? You know, since he actually remains active as a player for Ireland.

    No, course not.

    James McClean straight into the wall, that is exactly what I said before he hit it.
    He should not be taking free kicks imo or corners.
