    I think he will go for 4-4-1-1:

    Randolph


    Coleman - Duffy - Keogh - Stevens


    Doherty - Whelan - Arter - O’Dowda


    Maguire


    McGoldrick

    Quite a useful looking team, but what you see in Whelan is beyond me. What McCarthy sees in him is beyond everybody.

    I don't think Travers has been selected over Kelleher, just that Kelleher will probably start for the 21s as he's a couple of years older than Bazunu. Travers has been selected over O'Hara, though, which seems a bit of a stranger call since O'Hara is playing regular football.

    According to Paul O'Hehir in the Irish Mirror -
    Matt Doherty said of Mick: “I think he’ll do things differently. I guess he has got to change the mood - and maybe get some more things to do.” Asked if McCarthy would make it fun, Doherty said: “Yes, maybe not as serious. More relaxed. Not as tense. As it was kind of like that at times."

    Randolp

    Coleman Duffy egan Doherty

    Arter Hendrick

    Brady
    Maguire mcclean
    Long

    I'd like to see this side. Maguire plays wide for Preston so it's a familiar position for him and would allow him rotate with long.

    still let's us have bodies on midfield so we have a chance to get on the ball and play. Brady has struggled in that advanced midfield position but without o dowda I'd go with him there and he gives us a set piece option.

    Doherty to left full to try to make it his position ahead of Steven's. Gives him great option to come inside on his right and play into midfield instead of going long down the line like a left footer might be tempted to.

    We're probably both lucky and cursed that we've two games, and two winnable games in the first round of qualifying. If we were playing Gibraltar only, he could probably experiment a bit more, knowing the outcome is almost guaranteed. However with Georgia a few days later, and time on the training ground in short supply, it's unlikely that he's going to deviate hugely from one game to the other in terms of strategy, tactics or personnel.

    Shane Long has dropped out. Aiden O'Brien comes in to the squad.

    I think McGoldrick starts.

    I hope Whelan doesn’t.

    I think he will try to play Coleman and Doherty.

    I don't think Whelan will play two games in three days, and when one of them is Gibraltar, that's the one to miss

    I actually think Long dropping out is a good thing, and I get no pleasure in saying that. A striker that cannot score is of no use to us, regardless of the Division they are in. This removes the issue of "having" to start him over everyone else because he plays for PL club Southampton.

    I'd be inclined to play Collins with McGoldrick just off.

    It depends how he does it. Against Gibraltar the fullbacks are basically going to be wingers anyway. Playing one of them at full back and the other as a traditional winger could end up with them more or less standing next to one another a lot of the time.

    He was on fire for Rovers V Sligo the other night, probably the best I've seen in the league since Keith Faheys time in terms of being one step ahead of everything and everyone else on the pitch. We need creative players fasttracked, I'd be all for Crowley being involved too.

    Randolf has done nothing to be left out, aside from that I like it. Would like to see a big game from Jeff, he is well overdue one.

    Actually Brady is the one I'm not sure about. Randy has been fine for us, but not great. He was poor for goals home and away to wales.
    but his club form is only ok atm. While Westwood is playing very well

    Is it fair to play doherty in a position he has never played? It was a disaster for Christie and has always been a disaster as far back as Jeff Keana and Terry phelan playing in midfield against Holland in that 1995 playoff massacre. Doherty has played lots at left full why not pick him there ?
