    I assume that's the case

    Obafemi is better off in the u21s this time round IMO. He should definitely be playing in the centre of the 3 and leading the line. This is a really important game and he's by far and away our best forward in that squad.

    This constant Sheridan thing is hilarious, even Sheridan doesn't think he deserves a call up.....

    "The announcement of the call-ups led Brighton's Connolly to react on social media with an emoji of a person sticking their hand in the air."
    I wonder is that a Reference to the Irish Stasi , The British Stasi or the Brighton Stasi ! !

    Idah returns following HSE clearance as five players called up to Ireland squad https://the42.ie/5230307

    Idah is rejoining the squad but Connolly is not. I can only assume Connolly's club have asked him not to- and I couldn't really blame them.

    Dara O'Shea, Ryan Manning, Jason Knight and Ronan Curtis are in too. 4 lads who would have strong chances of breaking through in the short to medium term.

    I would imagine Idah will be 9 against Finland. I'd like to see O'Shea and Knight also get games.

    We are starting to grow some depth. Quite a decent squad between Connolly missing, the five players linked to the one positive test and injuries coming into the games.

    Strong squad. I'm really looking forward to this game now. If we start Connolly and Idah it would be interesting see how they fare with the slight improvement in service on show against Slovakia and Wales, in comparison the Bulgaria and Finland anyways.

    Was thinking about the false positives...

    The HSE have said that a false positive occurs a maximum of once in 500 for them. I think the players have been tested 5 times so far. If there are 56 FAI staff on a flight, over the course of the international break, you’re talking 250+ tests. In that context, it’s not improbable that a false positive could occur.

    Would it make sense to do a B sample, like in drug testing? Test everyone twice, analyse the samples separately but at the same time. Then if there’s a positive, you’ve either got a second positive, or a negative beside it, indicating a false positive.

    Means you don’t have the 1-2 day delay which ruled out Connolly and Idah

    how come we seem to be the country affected most by this? bad luck? or are we just not hearing about similar situations with other national teams?

    the only comparable team i've heard of is the italian u21s.
