    Two draws. (With Idah and Connolly failing to score).
    This is our life now.

    He's a loss, but in Doherty we have a direct replacement. There are losses we'd feel more keenly.
    Vaccinated.

    Assuming Idah and Knight are out, this could work okay:
    Bazunu
    Duffy, Egan, Omobamidele
    Doherty Hendrick Cullen McClean/Stevens
    McGrath
    Connolly Robinson

    If Idah is out I can see Keane getting a start. He'll want a target man on the pitch and someone who could convert chances from crosses.

    No Keane or Knight in the 23.

    Fairly quiet in here for a game day!

    Knight is a bit of a surprise, unless he's injured?

    No Keane is a way makes no sense. Why make a bit of a song and dance about a new forward option and then leave him out of the squad entirely?

    I have literally no idea what to expect here. If I was offered a draw now, I think I might take it even though I know it's objectively a poor result. But there's the potential for worse here. And yet I don't think they were great under set pieces in Lansdowne and if we focus on that, we could well get a win as we do keep it tight at the back and they're almost as bad as us going forward.

    0-0.

    Yeah Knight and Idah were both doubts through illness but seems Idah has recovered enough to make the squad.

    I am surprised that Keane isn't even in the match day squad, especially when Idah was a doubt for the game.

    Like the last game he would have been a handy option in the second half when we were putting cross after cross into the box but had no one up front to convert one of them until Duffy went up late in the game.

    I'd probably go with a 1-0 win for us. If we score first I think we could get a second but concede first again and it's gonna be a similar result as last time, a scrappy 1-1.

    Thinking the same. General lack of interest around to be honest

    I think we'll win. 1-0 or 2-1.

    We're playing Azerbaijan. They are ranked 117 in the world. The excuse of not having the players doesn't work against opposition like this. We should win, I think we will win. 2-0.

    Based on his comments on Stevens and the front three, I think Gavin Cummiskey reckoned the following would be the team on Newstalk:
    Bazunu
    Omobamidele Egan Duffy
    Doherty Hendrick Cullen Stevens
    McGrath Robinson
    Idah

    I like that.

    I think we should win. I'm just not so sure we will, especially having really struggled at home against them last month. And that would be (another) bad result.

    Bit worried about this one tbh.

    He's gone with Horgan. I think that decision could cost him his job. I don't think he can break down a resolute defence.
