    We thought he was the next Paul McGrath the night he only momentarily allowed Jan Koller out of his pocket.

    After Conor Hourihane's first Premier League goal at the weekend, he's now scored in all four divisions in England, but who are the other players to manage the feat in recent years? http://irish-abroad.appspot.com/Blog...99656506916893

    Some analysis of Sheffield United with an Irish interest: https://www.football365.com/news/she...icant-weakness
    The wing-backs are Enda Stevens left and George Baldock right. Stevens is the more spectacular, and the eye test suggests he’s the more naturally talented, in attack at least. He gets the ball significantly more than Baldock (12.1 more passes/90), and the numbers give him a clear edge in key passes (11 to 4) and expected assists/90 (0.11 to 0.02). But Baldock is fairly steady, a reliable short passer, and I was surprised to see he has a much better cross completion percentage (24.3% to 9.4%).
    And so to the strikers, those sometime recipients of Henderson’s long balls. For the early part of the season, Sheffield’s best forward man was David McGoldrick. He’s an intelligent player who can do a little bit of everything: dribble, pass, win balls in the air, make good runs, go by defenders with pace, defend from the front too. But only once, against Southampton, did he look like a reliable scoring threat, and even then he failed to convert several presentable chances. There’s some question whether he can lead the line at this level.
    But hopefully that won’t matter. With the advent of Mousset, McGoldrick has been shifted into a deeper role, kind of a 9˝, or what we used to call a support striker. It’s the perfect place for him: he can use all his skills without worrying about getting into prime scoring positions. Against Burnley he was flat-out brilliant as an advanced fulcrum for attacks. He played a crucial role in the build-up to the first two goals, and should have had an assist when sub Billy Sharp passed up an excellent chance McGoldrick created in leading a counter.

    The part about McGoldrick makes me even more keen to see him and Connolly in a front two.
