    I was badly beaten for pace! They are a nice compo. I have always thought mcgoldrick's has been lazy for us especially that night when we beat Austria away when he cam on and lunged into a lazy tackle on halfway which lead to that last minute chance for ?janko who should have definitely scored.

    If mcgoldrick is prepared to drop in and sit on the opposition's deep lying midfielder out of possession and press he does offer us definite variety and a bit of guile going forward

    These scouting reports seem really quaint I love them! These weren't on the fai site in Martin o neills time were they? Seems good news on long and Coleman. No mention of bamford this week strangely. Delighted judge been mentioned hope he makes squad having him as option off bench for creativity in the next 2 games wood be great

    Alan Browne taken off after 22 minutes for Preston so can only assume he was injured. Not great timing for him

    am surprised that mcgeady has been left out. his club form has been very good and has the attributes required to create chances against the likes of our first two opponents.

    Kevin Long surprising on the face of it until you realise he hasn't been on a football pitch this year. Odd to announce the squad now if it's likely 2 of them will need to be replaced.

    Only 6 defenders. Does that indicate Brady at left back?

    Mark Travers included to give us an extra attacking option from set pieces:

    Yeah, surprising enough but who would you pick them ahead of in terms of the defenders and midfielders there? Why have Christie in there as third choice right back to take a spot?

    A centre half and a midfielder for a striker and an attacking midfielder.

    I think we needed another CB in the squad and it's good to see Cullen get some experience in and around the camp.

    One of my gripes with the extended original squad was Cullen not being there. Not going to change our fortunes greatly, I realise, whichever of these lads plays but him Connell & maybe Coventry in a squad that size for their improvement potential, I would like to have seen.

    Josh Cullen is a good player and we should be happy to have a good player involved

    I've got to be honest, I'm unimpressed. I think not having Shaun Williams in there is wrong.

    I don't understand the Travers selection over Kelleher. It's a small thing, and I wouldn't put either of them in the match-day squad, but for me Kelleher's a monster.
    If I was to pick 3 defenders in a squad, I wouldn't pick Richard Keogh as one of the 3. If I was only picking 3 defenders then I'd have Shaun Williams in the squad as a person who can cover both positions.
    I think he's going to look at getting goals from midfield, and with Browne out I reckon he'll look at Hourihane.

    Based on his preference for 4 at the back, and unlikely to go 2 up top, I'd say he's going to go with
    Randolph, Coleman, Duffy, Egan, Stevens, Hourihane, Arter, Brady, Hendrick, McGoldrick, and a toss-up between O'Dowda and McClean.
    That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age
