    Why are we pulling out the spine of this team and potentially costing the U19’s a place at the 2019 Euros for a match vs Luxembourg...

    Couldn't agree more - we have the chance to have a big impact at U19 level and we're risking it for one U21 game in a group where the odds are against us qualifying anyway. And if we can't beat Luxembourg without those promoted from the U19 ranks, then we have no chance anyway. And if you insist on promoting Idah and Parrott, possibly to spread our striking prospects across the age groups, then why not replace them with McAuley, Cassidy, Kayode or Roache, at least? And there's surely no desperate need for Lee O'Connor to be in the U21 squad, when Ryan Nolan is waiting to be called upon. Gavin Bazunu will likely be warming the bench behind Caoimhin Kelleher, something I'm sure Mark Travers is well able to do

    Like I think it’s a good idea to have them involved but why not just have them join up with the squad for the trip to Russia? It’s frustrating as it’s a very kind draw, the spine of this Irish team got to the QF’s of the last two u17 euro’s whereas Russia ,Romania, Azerbaijan didn’t even qualify for the tournament and last year was a particularly bad year for Russia when they didn’t reach even the elite round of the u17s which for them is horrific! I know it’s not everything but that added in with how the three teams have played so far in qualifying not only do I think we should be favorites for qualifying but if playing at our potential we really should be comfortable favorites for this and should consider failure to qualify from this group a huge upset. Right now we are tying one hand behind the back of this team.

    We have the most depth at this age that I have seen in 25 years following the underage groups. I'd be disappointed if we don't still get ro the euros this summer. As an aside nathan Collins who misses out here obviously has been captaining stokes under23s recently which is a fine achievement for a lad who is underage for this age again next year

    What spine? Cassidy has only ever played a friendly for the 19s (last month) and McAuley has only been involved since last year, mainly as a sub. If you're talking about the spine, Idah and Parrott have been promoted to the 21s, which is the point of these teams, to progress players.

    I wasn’t referring to Cassidy or McAuley. I was referring to Lee O’Connor, Conor Coventry, and then like you said Idah & Parrott. Also we have injuries for guys like Nathan Collins. I get it that progression is important but qualifying for a tournament and participating surely is priceless? What would make sense to me is have the players train with the u21s and then release guys for the U19.

    Looking at the squad we can still field a pretty strong side so qualification is still very much within reach but we will look back on this with a lot of regret if we fail to qualify.

    BTW would Ryan Johansson be eligible for selection for the Euros final tournament squad or does the rule carry over to the final tournament also? If I had to have a guess I’d say it does?

    no, it's part of the same competition he's already appeared in so he's ineligible

    finished 5-0 to Ireland, with a saved penalty from Maher. Great start to the qualifying series!

    To be honest, 5-0 is possibly being generous, from what I did see of the game it was all Ireland. Next game is Azerbaijan on Saturday morning. They're playing Russia at two this afternoon. Ideally, that'll end in a draw, but it'll probably be a Russian win.

    Romania defense looks atrocious. Third goal was a lovely move after the mistake from their defender.

    Yeah, dreadful defending but some cracking finishes all the same. Emphatic last one by Afolabi.

    Wow... just wow. A 5-0 win against Romania. And this was without Idah, Connolly, Cassidy, Parrott, Obafemi and McAuley.

    Well f'k me, when was the last time Ireland won 5-0?

    I've no idea how good the Romania u19 team are but the first team is ranked 25th, above us obviously, it is not like say they are Gibraltar, would not be surprised if we struggle to put more than a couple past them!

    There was a month where the mens' sides scored an absolute barrel load of goals, but I can't remember when that was!
