    Nice to see a man with some strategy and vision. Looking forward to Toulon tournament now too. I think most of that team is underage?

    Hopefully someone picks up the coverage of the Toulon Tournament. I think it was shown on Freesports last summer.

    Just looking at the teams in the toulon tournament I had forgotten how rubbish it is. England and France are in the euro under 21s so they on obviously will send a very inexperienced team.

    I think it's great we are sending a team. It will be a wonderful experience for players and staff alike. Hopefully by the end of the tournament a new generation of players will have been bitten by the bug of international football.

    I'd hope the country offers them a proper sendoff beforehand. A visit to the Aras and all that.

    Leahy over Trev Clarke I disagree with. No criticism to Leahy but I really rate Clarke


    I’d have Nolan there ahead of Scales - as presumably Masterson and O’Shea will start, so I think Kenny working with Nolan is no harm considering he hasn’t had the opportunity. Seems crazy that he's been out in the cold for so long.
    Cotter v Carroll is fine. Same idea. The more players that Kenny gets to see the better.


    O’Connor, Coventry, Knight, Idah, Connolly - hope their inclusion in this tournament doesn’t preclude them playing for the u19s. I guess we’ll only know in July.


    I hadn’t seen or heard of Jack Taylor prior to today. Can’t really judge.


    Very surprised Mandriou isn’t included. Was at the Pats/Bohs game on Friday and Mandriou looked a level above Lennon and pretty much every other player who played. Josh Barrett, Kian Flanagan, Ronan Hale all merit inclusion. Joe Hodge is another outside shout.


    Still, there’s a lot that we might not know. Maybe Bohs and Rovers pushed to have Clarke and Mandriou available for them. Maybe there are injuries to some of the lads I mentioned. Dunno...

    Nolan is playing in the Primavera 1 (Italian U23 championship) Play Offs , so that rules him out. Hadn't heard of Taylor myself. Hw was playing in the National League in the 2018/19 season, finishing 13th, but has a few appearances in League in the previous two seasons.

    I'd imagine the U19 qualified players in the squad will be omitted from the finals in July, otherwise they'll go from this, to the U19 finals, and then straight into preseason training when that ends.
    All goals, yellow and red cards tweeted in real time on twitter and facebook

    Ryan Johansson? Bayern Munich reserves must having something going on? Another one omitted is Nathan Collins whose priority is probably getting a transfer to Man Utd right now..

    Johanson isn't really in Bayern's reserves he has just been with their 19s who finished only 4th in their league not for their reserves

Strange barrett isn't in from reading given he at least was involved with them at first team level in the championship towards end of season

    It was League Two that Shipley had made the appearances in. And he went straight into the starting line-up.

    Anyway, I see that Taylor's Wikipedia page has been updated to state that his dad his from Galway.

    No he played for our 21s this season in October when he was in league 1 and the previous season he had another 30 odd appearances in league 2. So when noel king picked him he was a league 1 player yet was portrayed as a no hoper and king as a disgrace

    But he did not have "30 odd appearances for them in League One" at the time. And I think it was part of a broader issue with King's selection policy- I don't think it was an isolated incident.

    Let's see if Taylor jumps straight into our starting line-up.

    Found this article about Taylor from 2017: https://www.standard.co.uk/sport/foo...-a3434691.html

    RE King. Looking at the last campaign, I felt the major fault on his part was the reluctance to integrate players from 98 and 99 after they graduated from 19s. And the 97 kids as they continued to develop

    Well I think we can say with certainty that Taylor has no league 1 experience. Think we should hold all our managers to the same standards. Noel king was portrayed as a buffoon which was unfair
