    Looks a weaker squad than the last one (no Rice, Walters), which itself was one of the weakest squads we'd had for years...

    makes pretty grim reading alright. going to need a game plan, togetherness (and possibly three hail Mary's) to get anything out of these games. Not one area of the team I would be comfortable with.

    Independent.ie posted this article earlier
    Denmark leave out Eriksen as Arter remains in Irish exile

    Meanwhile, it's understood that peace talks between Roy Keane and Harry Arter have not materialised so the Cardiff midfielder is set to remain in his self-imposed exile.
    but according to the FAI earlier, they did speak


    Bit surprised at Dan McDonnell, he's usually pretty reliable

    Egg on the face for Dan. He's normally the most reliable at the Indo. A few of his colleagues report more baseless stuff more often.

    Has Towell been that much better than Manning at Rotherham?

    I am not sure. We have a reasonable defence and some promising players in mid-field, even without the missing James McCarthy. It's up front where the main problem lies as we all suspected for years that it would be once Robbie retired.

    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    I agree. Hendrick and Arter haven't always set the world alight but are good options now. McCarthy and Brady will be good options when they return. Browne and O'Dowda should be important players in the future so they should be offered a chance to develop. McClean is there too, although my mentions above are more for our options in the more central positions, with Brady and O'Dowda showing promise previously as number 8s.

    Different positions though.

    I'm not against the team but it might look different if Seani and/or Shane Long were fit. Also MON would likely start Hendrick but I can understand giving Williams a go. I think Browne ought to be given a shot. I think he has a lot to offer us once he can adapt to this level.

    He has had a few Waterloos though. Austria at home was as lacklustre a performance as anyone has given in the Ireland jersey.

    that's true, but he has also lost his place with Burnley now and I think that will be enough for O'Neill to drop him

    It still amazes me Robbie was ever called underrated / didn't score in the important goals. We would have made it to 2002 without him - it would have been the last time we qualified without him - and we'd all still like Henry

    Robbie retiring really showed that the FAI are still in Jackie land and, realistically, draws, sneaking a 1-0 win and playoffs might be the only realistic target until the U-17 lads mature.

    The last two management picks is the proof in the pudding.
    Trap was trying to make us into Iceland but insulted his players too much.
    Mon is trying to make us into his Leicester of old - and things were going great...until he start insulting his players ability

    Put them under pressure....and raise our collective blood pressure every game again
    And its an inevitable reaction to the constant negative interviewing and analysis that's 10 times worse than it was under Jack.

    WHY CANT YOU PLAY HOOLIHAN!!!!! ANDY REIDD!! - what other answer is there? WE don't have the player makeup to use utility players effectively against teams with a strong counter.

    Thanks bejaysus Dunphy is gone and maybe, just maybe the plague of negative and BS dreams of "street players" is gone.

    I've always amazingly thought Stan would have come good if it wasn't that miserable vulture doing all he could to turn public opinion against Stan from match No.2

    Towell hasn't been involved in either of Rotherham's last two games, so I was surprised he was called up in the first place

    Our keeper situation is very serious, if Randy gets injured we are in hot water
    Doyle is not very good and is not getting his place for Hearts anyway.
    Elliot, Westwood and O'Malley have all lost their places at club level
    Ive never seen Sean McDermott play, but I'm not sure if he is even a full time Pro

    Interesting looking at the players cut. There's a lack of wide men in the squad now. McClean, O'Dowda & Doherty are natural wide players. O'Brien & Robinson have played there for the clubs from time to time.
    Reckon we'll be going 352 against Denmark.

    Cunningham started for Cardiff at the weekend. He must be getting frustrated given that Williams and Stevens are still in the Championship.
