    Hmmm. I would normally expect studs up for a red on a tackle like this, or else two feet. From what I can see, the studs were down and it was one leading foot. I Could be wrong: https://streamja.com/12K3

    Could be something, could be nothing, the Celtic Academy Twitter account described Afolabi's goal, with an assist from Okoflex as "the Irish connection"

    What is Okoflexs status? I thought he came up short for English residency requirements before moving to Scotland? Has he played a competitive game underage for us? If so, surely that places him in an even worse place than Johansson/Crowley as he wasn’t even eligible for English citizenship/passport at the time of Irish appearances

    He never played a competitive game for us or anyone. U17s in Dublin back in May would have been the first opportunity.

    He hasn’t lived in England for 5 years, so unless they are gonna get creative with the paperwork, he’s eligible for Ireland and Nigeria as of today.

    I actually wonder if agents are telling certain young players like Okoflex or Mipo or the other lad at United who’s really fast not to play for Ireland at underage level because they would qualify to play for England via residency in a few years but if they play a competitive game for us (or Nigeria) before they have nationality there, then that door is closed...

    Brighton v Villa tonight- you would have to imagine Connolly is quite sure of a start.
    Bournemouth away to Burton- hopefully Kilkenny gets a look-in and maybe a start. Is Travers fit?
    MK Don's v Liverpool- a bit of talk that Kelleher will make his first start. It would be great if this came to fruition.

    As an aside, Rochdale travel to Old Traffford. Brian Barry-Murphy is managing Rochdale. An inexperienced young manager like Solskjaer but his old lady Jimmy would have been more of a poacher in hurling and football akin to Ole than Brian.

    Connolly will start. Travers appears fit and all their forum posters have himself and Kilkenny to start, so imagine they will. The word from Anfield is Kelleher will start, tbh he has to start...he needs to get some game experience if they’re keeping him on the bench as backup in premier league

    Getting much love on here, is it? He was poor in the Toulon Tournament so that was a bit disappointing. It's obviously great that he's highly regarded at Liverpool but realistically there's probably a ceiling on what he can achieve there.

    Shane Blaney captained Doncaster 23s to a 1-0 win over Portsmouth last night in Premier League Cup. He's been featuring on the bench regularly for the first team this season without making any league appearance just yet.

    Ian Lawlor was in goal too.

    As you’d expect:

    Kelleher, Travers, Kilkenny, Barrett and Connolly all start. Conor Coventry is on the bench which is a little disappointing

    4/4 start as above. O'Hora on bench for Brighton. Coventry as expected on bench, behind Sanchez and Wilshere. Noble also on bench so expect Coventry only to get a decent run if WH are comfortable. No young Irish in Celtic squad for meaningless league cup tie against a team bottom of first division. Frimpong starts RB establishing himself ahead of O'Connor

    O hora makes bench for Brighton in what seems a very second string side with Connolly starting with Duffy.

    Coventry only sub for west ham

    Travers and kilkenny play

    Kelleher plays for pool

    Barrett plays for reading

    Connolly taken off on 58. Judging by Twitter he is being saved for the weekend and did okay through the middle on his own.

    Duffy limped off though....

    Kelleher kept a clean sheet - made two very good saves but also misjudged a corner and got outmuscled when trying to punch away a header across his goal. Could do with bulking up a bit. On the upside he seems adept at receiving a backpass from one full-back and helping it on to the other full-back

    Watched the full match. I can see why Liverpool are high on him but he is raw. Would be concerned if he was thrown into a competitive match if Randolph was unavailable in immediate future.

    Still, the ingredients are there for a top keeper if he continues this trajectory. His confidence/ability on the ball will make him very attractive for top sides as well.
