    O'Shea is playing left back now. There was a funny moment there where Seamus Coleman ran at O'Shea and turned him inside out. O'Shea recovered well to block the cross by Coleman. Poor form by Seamie!

    Even though West Brom conceded three I thought O'Shea was solid enough today, if he can keep his first team place all season I think we could have a serious first team prospect on our hands by next summer that can challenge for one of the centre back positions - he should only get better the more he plays at this level.

    He's a very useful player to have in the context of a squad as well, inasmuch as he can play anywhere across the back four - or three.

    I wonder if he'll be in the panel from the start this time round.

    Hard to know - he is probably ahead of Lenihan now but Clark is fit again and Long is getting his game for Burnley (and Dunne) so there's competition. Wonder if Stephen will bring an extra defender - do we know if the travelling party is still limited to 23?

    Looks like WBA have shifted to a back four today. Darnell Furlong has been right wing back but has been dropped for Kyle Edwards, an attacking player.

    O'Shea keeps his place so it's likely he'll be right back in a flatter four.

    Bilic likes Dara O'Shea. And I like Bilic after his positive words about Ireland.

    Slaven Bilic says making Ireland debut will help Dara O’Shea’s confidence https://the42.ie/5236261

    From that article:

    "I was the new manager, I came here and then you start and after two seconds, you hear ‘How many touches?’, ‘How many that?’ – Dara never asked that, he knew. He listens to everything and that’s a big part of his improvement.“He listens he thinks about his game. He is like a sponge. He listens to you and tries to improve his game, and that’s why his improvement has been really unbelievable.
    “If you consider where he was last season at this time and where he is now, it’s like a fairytale. But he deserves it all.
    “The main thing is is quality, but apart from the quality, it’s also his determination and his focus."


    And then what does Bilic do? Drops him, that's what! I think you'll have to end your man crush on Bilic after this episode Olé Olé.
