    Anyway the team I'd pick: 4-3-3

    Randolph
    Coleman, Duffy, Clark, Ward
    Arter, Meyler, Hendrick
    O'Dowda, Long, McClean

    SO it's competitive, counts to rankings and has an effect on our long term qual opportunity. needs to be our strongest in form team. Need to factor in ability, recent form, familiarity and experience.

    My team would be:
    Randolph
    Coleman Duffy Clark Ward
    Doherty Hendrick Hourihane O'Dowda
    Walters Mclean

    However I think Meyler will play as he is getting his game at Reading in the middle. prob at expense of Hourihane who for some reason is not starting at Villa. O'dowda for Burke is another possible switch. I really can't see Arter starting

    Hourihane hasn't really taken his chances for us so far unfortunately. I think I would give Alan Browne another go.

    I think we need a big performance and a win would be just the tonic, with rice-gate etc

    .........Arter.... Hendrick

    O'Dowda .....................McClean

    ...............Robinson

    ...................... Long


    Obviously it won't be but sure we might as well make it exciting.

    I would say the team will be along those lines, maybe one player different

    I'd be very surprised if Robinson starts.

    I would be surprised if he doesn't start, MON gives debuts when he feels the player is good enough

    I'd go with that too. Maybe O'Dowda for Doherty though. Either way, I think it is the best we can put out.

    All hearsay and rumours for now, but the story goes Roy Keane had a falling out with Arter in the summer games and he refused a call-up as a result.

    Brief story in the Irish Times today suggesting as much.

    EDIT: I notice this discussed in another thread already, apologies for the repeat.

    Not sure where this should go, but it concerns our Nations League campaign, and the Denmark v Wales game next week, so - Denmark are in serious trouble getting a squad together because of an internal dispute, and are contacting amateur players to try fill spots.

    If Wales get a gimme in arguably their toughest game (away to Denmark), then that gives them a serious head-start in terms of promotion and the potential Euro 2020 qualifying spot.

    We play Denmark in Oct and Nov, but you'd imagine the issue would be sorted by then; I think one squad at most is how long this game of chicken would last.

    you'd think the wales game is a must win now or we're well on the back foot.

    Wales must be laughing away; both squads appear in turmoil when you look at the Arter/Keane row as well actually.

    Not to mention our injury situation. Wales appear to be in very good shape that way. All their heavy hitters available and Bale in good form. A draw would be a very good result for us.

    Denmark to play futsal players against wales...
    https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/45382474

    surely there will be a big sanction for Denmark if this happens given it undoubtedly brings the competition into disrepute?

    Has to be some sanctions over this and maybe more. UEFA are not going to allow their own competition to be made a mockery of.
