    Played 30 minutes against Birmingham today - should Mick have held a spot for him? https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/47505158

    2 goals after 22 mins for Robinson at home to Ipswich. Hopefully a few PL clubs are taking note.

    Two lovely goals two, both from left of centre where Kilbane reckons he does his best work, cutting in on his right. Just what we need on one side of McGoldrick. I'd have Long on the other side but even ignoring McClean and Brady (both of whose places are at risk imho) there's O'Dowda, McGeady (brilliant yesterday I hear) and Horgan. All of these would do well ahead of the midfield 3 Mick seems to have (rightly) settled on for now, and either side of McGoldrick.

    I concur. I think Long and Robinson aren't natural wingers. Brady and McClean are and their first instinct was to stay wide against Georgia. Long and Robinson are a 9 and 10 probably by trade with the ability to play wide and drift in.

    I think O'Dowda could get one of the midfield roles in the long-term i.e. the Hendrick and Hourihane spot.

    I wouldn't rule Brady out of that role either. He played it in Euro16 and was very good.
    If he gets back in form - I'd much prefer to see him playing in a midfield three than out wide.

    There were recent reports of interest from a PL team that wasn't Bournemouth. Norwich would make sense.

    Robinson is so versatile I think he could do something at most clubs where they have a really clever manager. Howe has shown his ability to get the best of Fraser and Brooks so that is also an exciting prospect.

    Bit of a change from last season, when the EPL season started with one misfiring Irish international striker in a first-team squad (Walters was sent to Ipswich by the end of August without playing). If Robinson's deal goes through, there could be five this season (Long, Obafemi, McGoldrick, Robinson and Hogan, assuming he holds his spot), with a couple of youngsters on the fringes.

    Preston accept bid from Premier League club for Ireland forward Robinson https://the42.ie/4720709

    I wonder who. Any of the promoted clubs and maybe Bournemouth.

    Rumour is it's Sheffield United.

    That would mean potentially eight Irish forwards in Premier League squads next year (mostly squad players rather than starters though.)

    Youd imagine that if it's Sheffield United the news of the acceptance has been leaked to drum up a more attractive bid. Sheffield United could do well under Wilder but they're operating on a budget.

    A good piece of business by Sheffield United is the rumoured fee of Ł8m is correct. He's easily worth that.

    Some value. I've seen reports of 6m too. Regardless, that's good in this market. He had a great ratio for goals to games last season. If Sheffield United play to his strengths they will definitely make a gain.
