    Alan Judge an unused sub for Ipswich today. Hard to see how he is getting a call up.

    In addition to Connolly replacing one of our injured league 1 players, Williams replaces the injured Cunningham and Lenihan. Still no news on Duffy

    What about Ryan Manning? The rigidity in Mick's squad selection is infuriating.

    At what point is Ciarán Clark an option. Even without the game time, if an injury occurs, I’d trust him more than Williams if he was called upon.

    As for Shane Long and James McCarthy, should be able to find a slot for them as well. I hope Long scores tomorrow to emphasise his quality

    With the 3 day turnaround and all the travelling to and from Georgia this double header really will need changes for 2nd game.

    I would leave Duffy and mcgoldrick out of Georgia to fly to Switzerland along with Steven's and I'd add McCarthy to that as well to give you 4 fresh players to come into the side with no unnecessary travelling.

    Be very difficult to see how mcgoldrick or Duffy could play 2 games in that time span with all the travelling coming back from injuries.

    Whelan was left out of the givraltar game to play in the Georgia game a few days later so really cant see how now he could play in both with all that flying in between

    Long starting for Southampton. Let’s see how Zouma and Tomori handle him

    Clark starting for Newcastle against Man United today. Given his ability to play left back, it's strange he wasn't considered for this squad.

    Mick's nonsense of not playing regularly for their club doesn't cut it here either because Kevin Long doesn't have a single minute of league football this year.

    Battled without any real service for 70 minutes. Won a fair few free kicks. Was moved from right to left to centre about every 10 minutes.

    Maybe lacked a little confidence in passing to Redmond when a shot was on but led to a freekick on the the of the area, so can’t really complain with the result. Apart from the goal, I thought Ings was pretty poor.

    Obafemi replaces Long now. See how he gets on. Meanwhile fellow exile Ciaran Clark is starting for Newcastle. Maybe he’ll score 2 and get called up

    I referred to Long, Obafemi, Connolly, McCarthy and Brady as making appearances last weekend and didn't get a call up. It's one out and one in with Clark taking Connolly's place in this list.

    What was lovely this weekend I thought was having a reason to bother watching MOTD again, between Connolly / Hendrick / Hourihane / Coleman / McCarthy & the Sheff U lads there was someone in most games to give interest, it has been a while since we had that, Clarke playing today too, Doherty involved in a win V Man City, Obafemi got some minutes and Idah was on the bench yesterday.

    Obafemi hardly got a touch in the 20 minutes he was on. Southampton were awful.

    Was a thankless game to be thrown into alright.

    Long, McCarthy, Clark all started and should be in the Irish squad. Robbie Brady should also be there. Instead an unused sub for Ipswich constantly gets a call-up. Makes little sense.

    Harsh on Judge, he's only been an unused sub in two of the games he's been involved with Ipswich this season

    That is fine but more often than not he is not starting in League 1 and shouldn't be in the Irish squad if that's the level he is at.

    He’s playing in the third tier when selected. He’s over 30, had a career ravaged by serious and debilitating injury, and has made only a marginal impact internationally. His selection is entirely down to the fact that he played for Mick at club level. Picking players because he knows them is a major weakness of Mick’s and perhaps a dereliction of a manager’s job description.

    Ipswich have had ten games in league one this season, Judge has started in five of them, and come off the bench in four of the others

    I wouldn't describe the assist for the equaliser in Denmark as marginal
