    Alan Browne out injured.https://www.independent.ie/sport/soc...-37286752.html

    He wasn't in either of my starting teams though but mainly because I couldn't make my mind up

    The midfield situation is now serious. I would call Darly Murphy and ask him to meet the squad in Cardiff as a big favour. It will allow the oprion of Walters to drop to right mid if nessasary.

    Wouldn't Glenn Whelan make more sense, if you were to venture down that route? I suppose Hourihane could slot in instead of Browne, if he was down as a starter.

    Definitely Whelan and McGoldrick. Any word on Pilkington?

    For me the simple solution is bumping Cullen up from the U21 squad

    Ahead of Ryan Manning? I would have thought he'd be the automatic choice.

    Ronan Curtis could have been given a shout also given his form, potential and our lack of forwards.

    Some scatty nonsense above. Josh Cullen. seriously?

    We have Meyler and Hendrick certain to start so we need one more player who can play centrally if we play 4231. Hourihane must seize the opportunity. He's a good player who we haven't seen the best of.

    Judge is a good player, Horgan is a good player (I understand he's played centrally for Hibs - but O'Dowda has played through the middle for us anyway allowing Horgan to play wide),

    Williams is a very tidy midfielder. Doherty can play wide right allowing O'Dowda to move inside. Robinson could play deeper. We have plenty of good options in Browne's absence. Of course his absence weakens our options but calling up Cullen on the eve of a crucial U21 game is not the answer.

    Williams is good in fairness, Hourihane disappears for long periods of games and hasn't played well once for us. Robinson, Meyler and Hendrick will already be on the Pitch and the others don't really play Centre mid.

    People complain about us not getting young players involved with the senior set up, well here's a chance, Cullen is an excellent player

    Hourihane has precisely 3 caps. little early for such expansive statements isn't it? Cullen has played 85 league fixtures (not all starts) vs Hourihane 300+. Hourihane may not be the answer but he has yet to be fully evaluated in my view for the senior side. Cullen needs more experience to be in this discussion. Manning the same. It's Hendrick/Meyler + 1 more from O'Dowda/Horgan/Hourihane/Doherty.

    Cullen and Manning are not at the races here.


    Browne would have been very interesting. Most likely player to get purchased out of the championship into a premier league side in my view. all of the others will need to be promoted up with a team.

    Rice has 3 caps and I think its fair to say he is a good player, also Hourihane has lost his place with villa. I agree with Manning and also what you said about Browne, I would add Robinson as a player who could be bought.

    I also see no sense in weakening the U21 team any further, they've already lost Rice from when they last played. For once they're actually going quite well.

    Before Cullen is deemed an "excellent player" and being summoned for a call up, can anyone offer some insight as to why he could only get a loan with a League One club at the age of 22 and the same level he was on loan at at the age of 20?

    I haven't seen Robinson play at all really so I'll take your word for it. Definite difference between Rice and Hourihane. rice is a 19 year old people can see playing PL and international. It's like seeing Robbie or Duffer come through again. clearly he's quality. Hourihane is clearly in a dip which may or may not be indicative of a bigger malaise/problem. He's 26 .. it's time to produce. My mind isn't made up yet though.

    Not sure how livescore come up with these things. For club games I think they just list the team that played the previous week, whereas I suspect the above 11 have never all started the same game.
