    He seems to have built himself up physically a bit over the summer, which is good as last season he was looking a bit too lightweight.

    Very much so!! I don't get to see him much and was very disapointed...

    Saying that, I was impressed with O'Shea when he came on.

    He looked like he had a ton of bricks on his shoulders tonight. I wouldn't mind if he just couldn't beat his man but every simple pass he tried was woeful. I hope he's not going to be affected by confidence throughout his career.

    thought he was alright in the first half, but very poor in the second half. Mind you, Maloney who replaced him wasn't much better, did Fergie order Fletcher to stick to McGeady to negate him?

    Mc Geady was awful, he made no impression at all. O'Shea, however looked very composed and caught the eye, made at least 15 passes and only one went astray. He also made a very physical challenge on Saturday in the game against Spurs, maybe the penny has finally droped??

    Agree, McGeady was disappointing. O'Shea looked every inch a central midfielder, unlike Thomas Gravesen unfortunately! I still think O'Shea's days as a central midfielder for United will be limited, but how poor was Carrick last night?

    I worry about Mc Geady. It' s all well and good looking top class against the sh**e that play for Inverness and St Mirren and the like but he needs to do it at a higher level if he's to be any use to us in Internationals.

    I hope he doesn't waste his career at Celtic. I'd like to see him try to get a move to even an average Premiership club whereby he could play at a decent level week in and week out rather than just the odd game in the Champions league.

    I thought Maloney looked good when he came on. Mc Geady was rubbish though. O Shea has had good games for Utd before but when he plays for Ireland he is a disaster esp in centre mid. Most frustrating player in the Irish squad in my opinion.

    Is Staunton still a coward for only picking McGeady as a sub in Stuttgart?

    Stan made a sound valid justifiable brave decision keeping McGeady in reserve on the sub's bench.
    With hindsight maybe he could have come on after 65mins.
    If McGeady is as fragile in confidence as Eirebhoy says then no harm to be patient with him.

    McGeady did have poor game last nite but he's still a young player and is learning, i still think mcgeady would be our best choice to start right wing against cyprus.

    mcgeady was brutal lads
    first time ive had a good look
    seemed unduely nervous in possession
    he'll have better days but far from ready to save the irish midfield
    be realistic

    It had nothing to do with the opposition. It's not as if he was marked out of the game, he just couldn't even pass to a teammate. I've never seen him that nervous. I don't think McGeady should be making his first competitive start for Ireland at Lansdowne as I can't see him doing well (until he gains the confidence of the Irish support). At the same time, I think he'll be 10 times the player when he plays United in Celtic Park.

    If McGeady stopped reading what fans are saying on internet forums maybe he wouldn't be so nervous.

    I think a few people should realise what McGeady is about before judging him. He's a very intelligent passer of ther ball and likes to pick out forwards clever runs. Last night Celtic played 1 big man up front on his own, when McGeady got the ball there was absolutely no movement in front of him. I agree however that he had a bad night, but that definitely does not mean he's a bad player. Made his CL debut against none other than AC Milan and was outstanding that night, so much so that they ended up doubling up on him. Stan should definitley started him as he's 10 times better than Kilbane.

    no he's young and inexperienced and lets the occassion get to him (he will get better).
    passed to the touchline twice last night with a team mate in an easy position to receive a pass - in a nutshell justifying stans insistence in going with experience in Stuttgart

    you cant take risks in certain away games and mcgeady at present is a risk

    Ya wasnt too impressed last night, although Ive heard enough good reports about him not to judge him on last night. Am gonna try and catch as many of their CL games and see how he gets on overall. They have copenhagen at home next so you would expect him to do well there.

    On O'Shea, he always puts in a solid performance for Utd in midfield but when it comes to playing for us, he seems to lose all composure and confidence.

    Celtic's other winger, Nakumura, has also been great for Celtic, however he was brutal last night apart from the goal. I feel this was also due to the lack of movement up front. Everytime he got the ball he was either coming back or giving it away. I think this backs up what I said about McGeady, and I think it's a valid point that there was no one to hit. However I'm not naive enough to know this wasn't the only factor in why they had bad games, but it's an important one. Looking forward to seeing him prove a few lads wrong against Copenhagen!
