    They'll probably call an u19 player up given that they're nearby. I'd get Okoflex involved.

    and now you've got fans who won't get in.

    i think i've been to every home u21 game since they moved back to Dublin except for the afternoon midweek one against Israel. I normally take a mix of cousins, nieces and friends, the kids ranging from 6 to 16. Good to get the kids used to going to games, believing in the players we have and Tallaght is a nice little stadium, it feels pretty intimate. Maybe averaging 5 people per game. Think I'll still be able to source a few tickets from one avenue or another but... if anyone hears anything
    have 4 if still looking. not my own but said id try to find a home for them

    Kelleher, O’Connor, Masterson, O’Shea, Scales, Coventry, Molumby, Elbouzedi, Ronan, Parrott, Idah.

    I’m disappointed with that side. Kilkenny or Obafemi should surely be in instead of Elbouzedi. I don’t think Scales is mobile enough for left back if that where Kenny is playing him. McNamara or O’Shea at RB with O’Connor going to left back, and Collins playing in the centre are better options. Also Idah playing ahead of Obafemi is somewhat disappointing, Idah has a long way to go before proving he has what it takes to make it at the top in my book. But understand he’s a better “target” man next to Parrott so balances nicely.

    Another tip of the hat to the national league by Kenny to keep his grassroots happy may be to the detriment of our chances today. Let’s hope not, and we perform well though. Looking forward to the game

    Kenny mentioned during the week that Obafemi's fitness has to be managed, so that might be a part of his decision not to start him

    You assume that caps for LOI players are token acts? You underestimate Kenny and his desire to win and play nice football if you do.

    Yes, I feel there has been subtle favoring of the LOI players when there are better alternatives. Not clearly overt and pervasive yet, but something I hope won’t become a signature of his tenure.

    Scales is playing out of position at left back when there are better options. And Knight (featuring regularly in championship) or Kilkenny (featured twice in league cup for a premier league side) are clearly better alternatives to Elbouzedi, who has done nothing to impress me otherwise when he’s played this year for the u21s. We need to nurture the talent who are positioned better to make something of their careers

    Jayson Molumby is such a good player.

    Solid first half performance. Can win this one.

    As I suspected Elbouzedi should not be starting. He should be subbed sooner rather than later. Scales like a duck out of water at LB, beaten easily by his man to allow a dangerous cross midway through the first half, and has looked uncomfortable on the ball, offering nothing apart from turning back to play the ball backwards. Idah actually showed some glimpses of improvement with his ongoing senior football exposure at Norwich, held the ball up nicely a few times with appropriate layoffs.

    Pretty comfortable at the moment, apart form one or two shaky moments

    Hes excellent but needs to curtail the jumping into tackles a bit. He gets booked in every game.

    Parrot needs to play through the middle, spending too much time in own half.

    Idah strong with back to goal but his touch is poor and gives it away too often.

    I think that is harsh on Idah.

    Have to love the belief Kenny has instilled. Coventry stating that we played them off the park and deserved the win. Not often we say that.

    Overall solid performance. Lacked a bit of cutting edge but did create chances. The Italians didn’t really show up, they clearly didn’t fancy a wet windy evening in Tallaght, seemed content with draw once Kean went off. Really bizarre refereeing but guess it’s half expected at underage level.

    Hopefully, Molumby only felt a slight tweak in hamstring and it’s nothing serious. Idah did improve in fairness to him, but he has a long long to go.

    Iceland away looking like a tough game now without Connolly (seniors), Afolabi (injured) and Parrott (presumably suspended). I guess the problem with having a pile of good attackers is that you have more of them to lose.

    Would a draw away in Iceland be a decent result?

    I fully expect 3 points in Iceland. Anything else is a failure. Has Kenny not instilled any belief in u? That defeatist attitude belongs in the old irish era
