    Depending how it all works out Wales may well be looking for a New Manager.

    Was gonna post something specific earlier but decided against in risk of being libellous, instead I’ll be broad.

    I wasn’t at all surprised by this. FAW were mad to appoint him given the stuff in his personal life. He’s clearly not an individual that should be managing his national team.

    I'd like to think we'd have avoided making a similar appointment alright. And that's regardless of how this one pans out.

    For clarification - there is to be no discussion of the allegations against Giggs until the events are proven/disproven, other than mentioning that he won't be in charge of the game.

    So - quid nunc?

    I think we have to write the England game off and get on with things. It was always a hiding to nothing; a game we didn't need and which probably shouldn't have happened. Wales are a step down and maybe in a bit of flux with the Giggs suspension.

    Is Egan likely to be back for Sunday? Looked like just a clash of heads (or head/shoulder), but a head injury could be a three-day automatic rest period. Though O'Shea can come in I guess.

    What happened Coleman today? He was interviewed by O'Donoghue in the run-up to the match and then was suddenly pulled. Jack Byrne also in the squad but not on the bench - are there more covid cases we don't know about? Can Jack Byrne even be a covid case (or close contact) if he had it last month?

    I don't think I'd be looking to make wholesale changes to style - an increased tempo would be nice of course, which may come as players get used to the system - but I think in the middle of a three-game run is the wrong time for major tinkering. A goal would be lovely of course. Though ultimately, "all" we need to do is beat Bulgaria next week to stay up.

    Apparently Manning and Byrne weren't due to join up with the squad before the Wales game.

    Why that is, I'm not sure.

    Byrne was due to the Rovers game being moved from Sunday to Monday by the FAI, so he was obliged to play that game as it wasn’t scheduled during the international window and then could only travel Tuesday but not train, having played monday, so they decided it would be better to bring him in after the friendly.

    Manning presumably because of the late call-up. Coleman was described as an injury on tv.

    What happened with Arter?

    Oh for God's sake...

    The really annoying this is it probably doesn't affect the English seeing as Browne never managed to be a close contact at all last night.

    The FAI arw saying there are no close contacts which seems an insane thing to say.

    I'm assuming it's the definition of 15 minutes at closer than 2m.

    Has there been evidence of it being passed during a match? All they can do is keep testing I suppose.

    Covid-negative, maybe; I haven't checked.
