    Danny McNamara (D Millwall b.1998)

    Think Danny McNamara deserves his own thread after his progress in the last year or so.

    Was recalled from a loan spell at Newport County this time last year after impressing in League 2 but didn't succeed in breaking into the first team. This season he went back out on loan to St. Johnstone and it's no exaggeration to say that he has been one of the stand out right backs/right wing backs in the Scottish Premier this season.

    He has been recalled from loan by Millwall for the second season running and seems to have a decent chance of breaking into their first team for the second half of the championship season.

    It's interesting that he was a clear number two to Lee O'Connor at Under 21 level for Ireland but seems to be adapting much better to men's football so far (he is 18 months older than O'Connor to be fair). He's too old for all of our underage squads from now on but if he breaks through at Millwall he might be an option for the senior squad before too long - there isn't a huge amount of depth in the right back position at the moment once you look below the obvious picks of Doherty and the now 32 year old Coleman.

    Is this dark horse now in the race for a senior call up?

    Possibly ready to challenge Cyrus Christie to be our third pick at right back. Then if either Coleman or Doherty drop out of a squad he could be in.

    Kenny had McNamara in his 21s squad so I assume he'll be keeping an eye.

    Christe is crap. Dara OShea is v good so he is ahead of Danny.

    Can Dan play anywhere else?

    I'm not sure Dara O'Shea is an international quality right back though - I'd leave him for centre half unless we have some kind of availability crisis.

    McNamara can play right midfield but we don't really play right midfielders anymore. He can also play left back at a stretch.

    Is a similar player to Doherty in a lot of ways, but at a much earlier stage of his development.

    He’s comfortable enough on the left as well
