    Obvious that it would happen with one confirmed case in the camp. There could be both management, backroom and squad withdrawals between now and our next kick-off. It is not a nice lottery to be in.

    Different countries use different tests.

    We should have downgraded to the company the premier league uses.
    They swab only the inside of the nose and don't stick it all the way into their brain a it would be "too invasive".

    rewatched the game, the double booking was very very harsh, the ref got it all wrong, 1st booking he didnt even touch the guy! 2nd was invented by the welsh player, but there was a challenge for the ball, watch the qualies in southamerica then. Please FAI ask uefa for the sending off to be overturn and invalidate.

    the last two refs were really against the green

    McClean didn't connect but when you lunge like that when on a yellow, you give the referee a decision to make. McClean is incapable of playing with restraint and quite frankly should probably be substituted whenever he's on a yellow.

    Unfortunately there might also be a calculation that we're more likely to score with him on the pitch. With Connolly coming back in, an appeal probably not worth the effort.

    An appeal is nonsense. In real time when he lunged in the 2nd time I instantly said what an idiot to my wife before the red card was shown. It was completely brainless to dive in like that after already being booked

    I have to wonder just how false that false positive was.

    I don't see how this game goes ahead. There'll be more positives after this.

    That's laugh out loud funny Bielsa. Replay showed clear contact as McClean went down the Welsh guy's achilles from behind. McClean's indignant reaction was hilarious after seeing the replay.

    Yeah he raked down the achilles with his left foot as he was chasing him. Very nasty one to be on the receiving end of.

    Thankfully, there are no close contacts with the player... meaning it’ll just be one person missing out and not multiple

    That still makes no sense, are they not in close contact on the training pitch. Was he not rooming with someone? Do we know who the player is yet?

    I get the impression kenny isnt happy with him, I wouldnt be surprised if that was the last we saw of James in the squad, certainly in the team even as a sub.

    that can only mean its a player being brought back in or being brought in. HSE requires the person to go through all close contacts, outside of training, that theyve been in contact with.

    That will certainly not be the case barring something new and extraordinary. SK/JMcC are fine post red card.

    It looks like all the players being brought in are in this video the FAI I have just shared. I see Idah, O'Shea, Knight, Manning, Curtis in this- but maybe this is the reason Connolly is in gloves?

    i am winding up , yesterday the southamerican broadcasters said that the 1st booking wasnt and ampadu overexaggerated the challenge. Its common sense of course McClean is not street wise, but the one to blame is the croocked greek ref, and u see that in no 2nd booking of Christie.
    Christie should have been sent off, he didnt do it since ireland would be with 9 guys
