    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.

    Good omens for him that only two of that list ended up with fewer than ten caps and that it includes three of our six most capped players and two of our six top scorers

    Don't forget, Michael Obafemi's appearance in the Nations League counts as a competitive international. It did tie him to us.

    Ah. Sorry. My bad. What are the chances he'll start against Slovakia to get added to the list? Mick seems ready to throw players in.

    Depends on how he's performing really. He was in the last U21 squad, so needs to get back in the senior squad first. I'd say Mick has settled on McGoldrick, Connolly, Collins, and one space free for the four strikers in his squad

    As we come to the end of the 2010s, I sat down with Mark Kennedy of Hawkeye Sidekick to discuss the last ten years of Irish international football.
