    Thats amongst mates so I'd say say fair enough. If they get introduced to some one new away from football do they give their nickname?

    Outside of football I wouldn't think so, no. But then, I wouldn't think David McGoldrick gets called Didzy outside of football either, or does he?!

    Of all the things in the world to get annoyed about its minor, but I also see James McCarthy is now being referred to as Jimbo by certain people on here..... I'll go yell at the TV for a while

    There was a lad I knew and played with from about 16 to 22. At some point before I knew him, he became known as Panda, I believe cause he had jet black hair, super white skin, black eyes and he slept 16 hours a day or thereabouts.

    Genuinely I’d say less than 10% of the people who knew him, knew his real name was Mark...

    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.
    Sorry, saw this late. I’d pick him over McCarthy as I think he brings different attributes to a similar part of the pitch. Cullen would be my favourite for the neat and tidy deep role, but Molumby can bring some energy and drive to that central position. I asked the question last week if Molumby can play the tight right role as I think he could be a like for like replacement for Hendrick too.

    All new midfield: Molumby/Arter/Brady. Everything else as per Sofia. Interesting.

    Very interesting. I didn't expect that. I would have gladly seen Hendrick maintained in there, maybe for Arter but Arter deserves a go.

    I don’t mind that. McCarthy and Hourihane don’t deserve another start based on the Bulgaria game.

    I’ve never been convinced by Arter in an Irish shirt but all 3 CM places are up for grabs. If he plays well tonight then a good chance he starts in the game that matters next month.

    Idah deserves another go. I think he could do serious damage if he has space. He didn’t get many opportunities to shine the other night but I thought he did the basics well.

    What is with Kenny’s early fascination with O’Dowda? Needs to do something at club level before being considered at this level for me

    Hoping to see Molumby bringing some much needed drive into our midfield today and nailing down the jersey for the next 10 years.

    Probably asking a bit much but I have huge hopes for him longer term.

    I guess he’s gonna ask Arter to sit, which will somewhat compromise his game, his ability to press intelligently and tackle and to drive forward and get into areas where his passing can create chances.

    Have never really seen him play as the deepest midfielder, so no idea how comfortable he is doing that job...

    Like that he's not afraid to make changes. Obviously seen the midfield was too static
