    Lawal is wasted playing CB. All the talk about converting a CB into a midfielder and we've got Lawal whose a midfielder that Celtic are trying to convert to a CB.

    Wouldn't mind seeing Garcia get a call up for the friendlies next year. U21s only have one qualifier against San Marino next March and he's playing regularly at LB for his club. A position which we're short of options at.

    Brutal… not sure if Kenny was the right sub from Crawford with 10 to go. Switched the momentum back to Italy. And he’s so lightweight. Surely another midfielder or defender would have been the right move there?

    That was heart breaking to concede with literally the last kick or head of the ball. Kicked off a bit after the final whistle with Sinclair Armstrong upset with something that was said or done.

    Johnny Kenny must be the best trainer in both Crawford and Bradley's eye's as I've never saw him as anything but a lightweight little boy in games he's played,in stark contrast to Armstrong who looks likes a man playing kids football.
    Can decide if Crawford is a good manger,a bad manager or just unlucky. His subs tonight and on Saturday had a negative effect imo.

    I was reading on the coybig forum that Armstrong is only worth 900k and Gonto for Italy is worth 18 million…how does that make any sense ?

    The Latvia results gave Ireland a chance but most probably it's the play offs now with a decent chance to be seeded.
    The weak link in this u21 format is that the competition is dragged out, the finals are so far ahead of the starting point, if a player is good enough aged 21/22/23 he's already graduated to the senior squad even before the group stages/ play offs have concluded.

    Hes a bad manager that has good players. He may be a decent coach because we do play good football at times, but his decision making is terrible. He picks the wrong teams constantly and his subs are as bad as Stephen Kennys.

    Today was heartbreaking, but we have a couple of super young players up front. Armstrong could be like a Heskey for us. So powerful and quick, if he develops his game a bit he could be a fantastic player. I really like Emakhu, have done since I first seen him for Shamrock Rovers. Such a clever player and is pacey too. It wont be long before both are regulars in the senior squad I think.
    Its really not that complicated!!!
