    Yes they are full backs just switch doherty to left full and let him use his ability to pass the ball into midfield and cut inside and have strikes on goal coming from a full back position. None of our full backs have any guile that makes them suitable to play midfield.

    A terrible game of football in atrocious conditions but we have the three points. In the past we've played better against minnows and only drawn (Lichtenstein in the 1990s springs to mind) so getting the points on the board is the main thing. Central midfield is a bit of a worry, I wonder if it's worth Mick giving Conor Coventry a chance there. He's been getting rave reviews in West Ham's youth team, some of their fans are going so far as saying he looks better than you-know-who did at the same stage a few years ago.

    That's a different debate. When we were discussing it previously most people including me where more then happy with Stevens and i think he deserves another go at LB. Would u keep Doherty at right mid if Stevens keeps his place?

    No. to me you are picking 2 out of three for full back from Coleman, Steven's and doherty. Physically I think Steven's is behind the others and he lacks the top flight experience of the others. He also offers less in terms of goals. So I wood have Coleman right full doherty left full. But if doherty can't get into those 2 positions fair enough but he shouldn't play at all then.

    How can mcgeady not be on the right of midfield against Gibraltar when doherty was the alternative?does anyone seriously think doherty has the craft and guile to create chances against s team that is sitting back in two banks of five?

    At wolves he comes onto ball from deep in acres of space and uses his athletic and physical ability to play simple passes to break into the space behind to create chances which is fantastic but playing right wing is totally different when space is tight and you need to use actual skills to create that space not just athletic ability. Clearly that's why doherty has never played right midfield I'm club football but has played at least a season and a half as a left full

    At half time I would have taken off the rooftop aerial and cancelled the TV subscription but I was hoping one of Duffy's 'passes' might have floated by and done the job for me.

    Maguire not a whole lot better.
    Brady did well when he came on but we have the ball back to them way too much.
    Was it Brady who put McGoldrick through initially for the goal?

    Does goal difference count?
    If so we have already dropped a point, other side will be putting cricket scores past them.
    Mind you our goal difference is always rubbish, so no great loss really.

    Hourihane I think. Brady hadn't come on yet.

    The game was awful to watch.
    I wonder would the likes of Auden McGeady have been suited to do some sort of damage on an Astro pitch.
    Regarding central midfield, I sill think Shaun Williams should be considered as he olds on to the ball well and demands it too.

    Watching Duffy boot the ball into the sky constantly on Saturday was just awful to see
