    I'll tweak my suggested team from the tail end of the Andorra thread (assuming still playing 4-3-3) as Coleman's out, which means -

    Kelleher

    Doherty
    Egan
    O'Shea
    Manning

    Cullen
    Knight
    Molumby

    Parrott
    Idah
    Horgan
    I like that team, but Id change Molumby for McGrath, Id like to see if hes up to it at International level

    Is McGrath not more an attacking player? Would be more a switch for Horgan I'd have thought. Could be wrong though. I don't think SPL is really international level, but then we're playing third tier players and they're not really international level, so I guess what's the worst that could happen giving him a run.

    I thought he was an attacking midfielder. Ive seen very little of him so I'd just like to see him to get more than 10 minutes, but away from home we might might need 2 more defensive minded midfielders.

    At the start of his tenure the worry was about holding onto the ball and finding scoring opportunities, we were more than blunt up top.

    Now 12 games in the bigger worry for me is how poor we are defensively , conceding against all sorts of opposition and more than stoppable goals. It's a big worry because defensively is where we are strongest. I want to see a few clean sheets, it wouldn't be progress as such but at least we'd be back at the start again.

    I would go with 3-6-1

    Kelleher

    Duffy
    Egan
    O'Shea

    Doherty
    Molumby
    McGrath
    McClean

    Horgan
    Parrot

    Collins

    Manning as midfielder woud be very good though. But if I playa Mc Grath I would go with McClean to bring some experience.

    Back to topic... Whats the team like today?

    I see Hourihane starting. I Would love Hourihane and McGrath together on the pitch with a "bite player" in midfield.

    I've mentioned this on twitter, does giving a player who didn't play against Andorra a run out against Hungary send a strange message? Say Kelleher does come on tonight - does that mean he's not good enough to face Andorra, but he is good enough for Hungary? Maybe Omobamidele is a better example - he wasn't in the matchday squad to play against the part timers in Andorra, but he is able to play against Euro 2020-bound Hungary?
    It's nit picking, I know, but thought it was something that deserved a mention
    All goals, yellow and red cards tweeted in real time on twitter and facebook

    Keepers are a bit different I guess - it would have been fine (for me) to give Bazunu the Andorra game and Kelleher the Hungary one as both keepers need time, but (for me) Kelleher is ahead of Bazunu and needs the better test.

    Is there anyone else strongly rumoured to be featuring tonight?

    I do think being 1-0 down against Andorra after an hour may well have stymied sub plans.

    I’d certainly be in favour of giving Kelleher a game. Like if you were curious about how Bazunu would handle a crowd or wanted him to adapt to a crowd, you’d have started Kelleher against Andorra and Bazunu against Hungary. Anyway, maybe Kelleher isn’t at 100% due to that injury or something...

    Personally I’d like to see a new boy or two get a bit of game time. Couldn’t really tell much from McGrath on Thursday. Ogbene for example.

    Ogbene was carrying a knock on Thursday, I reckon he would played otherwise.

    Should hopefully see him get a run tonight. We're very short of right-footed wingers.

    Yeah, agree neither of them can really be said to be ready at the moment. And yep, Hungary want to get as many people into the game tonight (15k capacity ground), and it seems a good way to prep a keeper for Portugal in the event that Randolph isn't fit or has dropped back (cos he's not getting games either at the moment of course).

    Quote from Kenny is - "I’m Caoimhín’s biggest fan, he played in the under-21 team ten times and had he been fit in March (v Serbia) he would have started, it’s fair to say. Gavin Bazunu has come in and just been absolutely excellent. Sometimes you take your chance" - but Bazunu hasn't been "absolutely excellent". His decision-making has been really poor at times, and this in games against not-great sides who haven't put us under a huge amount of pressure. Unless Kenny is seeing something else in training that we're not (such as, as elatedscum suggests, Kelleher not being match fit because he's just back from four months injured) then that's the kind of comment that would really cause me to question the manager to be brutally honest.
