    Oh, cheers. Better again. I had thought Monday was the 6th.

    That's a really good point. Not meaning to sound too harsh, but Collins looked out of his depth to an embarrassing degree in Georgia. I think because Idah has so little senior football played, it was easy for people to say he's not ready on the back of a pretty tough night for him, particularly the second half. But he did well overall, set up two of arguably our three best chances for a start. I'd be happy to see him get the nod again tomorrow.

    Jeez PS, whatever about Idah, I feel you're taking conservatism to a new level here. He's 21 with a really good season at a decent level behind him. If he has to wait for our more senior players to put a couple of wins on the board, he could be waiting a while. I really don't think we're any less likely to get a result with him in the side.

    Dan McDonnell has predicted an unchanged side for the "probable line-up" in the Indo. I'm looking at the graphic and wondering if someone has re-printed the team the other night in error. I just can't see Coleman being left out- I think the intention was surely for a game each for them. Similarly, I can't see O'Dowda keeping his place.

    They are the two most obvious ones for me. Didsy for Idah is the third most likely. And I would like to see Hourihane dropped for someone who will be a little more involved in the game.

    You'd want to be careful. He could get gobbled up by Glen Kamara of Glasgow Rangers and Tim Sparv of AEL...

    On that, a terrible result of there being no fans in the Aviva for the first match tomorrow is that there will be nobody on hand to boo Kamara. I hope my neighbours don't get too worried hearing my baritone, bellowing boos.

    They'd probably have booed the wrong player anyway.

    I think Molumby is a confident and physically capable lad. I'd have no hesitation starting him. I positively want him to start. His position is a priority for us and if he offers an upgrade we need to see it now.

    These two games are essentially warm ups for the play off in October. It's going to be hard to see a player that doesn't feature in either starting against Slovakia in a few weeks

    Well that's another point. Kamara is black as he is from a Sierra Leonean background. It could have been a very difficult situation. Imagine if he was getting forewarned -"Glen, there's a chance that at least a small group of Irish fans are going to boo you." "Because I'm black?" "No, because you played for Rangers." *Looks of puzzlement*

    Who would you start him for? My issue is the combination of the three. McCarthy is a favourite of Kenny and he is surely going to persist with him. Drop Hourihane and you have McCarthy, Molumby and Hendrick. But that doesn't leave room for a 10 type.

    The more I think about it, I would, myself, drop McCarthy with the sole intention of seeing what Molumby can do tomorrow. Molumby, Hendrick and Brady would be a nicely balanced midfield. Bite, dynamism and guile provided respectively.

    Is it Idah or McGoldrick? (sorry couldn't resist)
    If Kenny wants to go all out with 3 forwards, can it not be a front 3 of Connolly Idah and McGoldrick
    and fit them in a 4321, with Idah the fairy angel at the top, Connolly and McGoldrick in support

    Kenny announced Didsy isnt match fit so can't start tomorrow. Assume Idah will get the nod again.

    Pity: it'd be useful to see how he does in that formation before the playoff. Not the end of the world to give Idah a second roll of the dice, but we might see Long instead.
    Covid-negative, maybe; I haven't checked.

    Might we see Long if Molumby is to play so as not to have too many new lads out there together ?

    Am I the only one who finds calling a grown man Didzy very annoying? Nicknames amongst mates are ok but does he go through life calling himself that? Had a 45 year old introduce himself as Beanie to me recently, at what age do you out grow that?

    Old man rant over

    I play football with lads who are in their 40s and 50s now and still go by their childhood nicknames, including a couple of ex pros, so I can kind of understand it. Some of them I don't even know their real names and I've been playing with them for years!
