    Serbia V Republic of Ireland - Wednesday, 24th March 2021 - World Cup 2022 Qualifier

    We are 8 weeks away from the squad panel of players and 10 weeks from matchday.

    What we know from them is that they are changing coach, finished strong in a 5-0 victory vs Russia at home.

    Main source of goals is Fulham's substitute Mitrovic (a Cascarino type of 9) and their flair player is Tadic from Ajax, their results at home are very moody.

    And they won us the group when they defeated Ireland away for the wc 2018 goal from Kolarov.

    How is Kenny gonna play against them?

    His first match vs Serbia is gonna determine his fate, a draw is in need at least! The bring the new kids is not enough, a case of too little too soon.

    Duff gone is very very strange and odd he seems a fellow of principles, a breeze of honesty in football imo.

    The 7 games without scoring a goal is unacceptable, the 4-3-3 has made Ireland very predictable, sometimes in this game, just to be there is not as good as appearing by surprise, wandering around the box, and the brains to occupy the empty spaces, suddenly see a pass create a proper chance.... in the last third of the pitch.


    --------------------------------------Randolph----------------------------------------

    Doherty------------------Duffy------------------Egan------------------------Stevens

    -------------Hendrick--------------McCarthy-----------------Brady

    Robinson-------------------------Connolly-----------------------McClean

    is gonna be, bar injuries vs Serbia away

    Definitely not a 10. I'd want him in there for the energy he would bring to the midfield, but he's not a particularly creative player. I can't see us playing an out and out 10 away to Serbia anyway. Hourihane might play - but he's not a 10 as such either.

    I don't see him as a number 10 either. He's obviously got terrific energy levels and running ability, and has played a number of different roles for Derby. What is his best position right now, and what position will he eventually settle down to?

    I’d be inclined to play Knight as a wide attacking player, or as an advanced central player, whether that’s as a 10 or as an attacking midfielder.

    I agree that despite his energy levels he doesn’t necessarily have the guile to be an elite attacking player. He’s a bit good at everything without being exceptional, so I’m curious to see what position/formation suits him best.

    I’ve seen him play in a more conventional central role but I’m a little bit wary of putting a young player of his stature in a central position.

    The old fashioned 10 playmaker we have is Hourihane, in a Norberto Alonso, George Hagi, Sigurdsson kind of mould, for that position to click in we must play 4-4-1-1 or 4-3-1-2 with players moving around so Hourihane could assert passes into spaces

    Knight seems to be a right midfielder, Connor Ronan is a 10, Ryan Manning played there at youth level, he has some assets to be a 10, but the kid is making a living as a left wingback

    Knight for me is a straight central midfielder. A number 8 I guess would be his position. Box to box, loads of energy, basically a Roy Keane type but unlikely to reach the same levels as Keane realistically. But potentially the best we have had in that position since Keane given time and a bit of luck with injuries. Maybe Mark Kinsella would be a better comparison to Knight.

    Ive thought Kinsella was a good comparison for Molumby. Knight being so young its hard to know who to compare him to yet, probably a lot like Hendrick when he was younger. I'd hope he can develop better than Hendrick.

    Yes I’d avoid the Keane comparisons personally. I’d be inclined to say he’s on the Hendrick track. Given the stick Hendrick gets here that would be seen as an insult by some but becoming an established premier league player is no small thing.

    I think Kenny hasn't used Josh Cullen nearly enough as well

    I'm more worried about the goalkeeping situation to be honest.

    Kelleher not in the last Liverpool squad, presumably due to injury, and Randolph maybe struggling with a knock in the last game according to a couple of posters here. We could really do without that sort of headache going into a triple-header.
