    I thought it quite ironic that a rugby player earning his money in ireland meets the queen and yet we didnt see a shot of one of our soccer players who earns his living within the crown jurisdiction isn't at the thing....

    That's not ironic.

    It's ironic that she speaks more Irish than the lot of us.

    Sure what manager would release a player in the last week of the season Paul! Most of our players are involved in promotion/relegation battles! I spose Shay could have had a gander over. Or Robbie!

    Shay was out in Coppers last night. You can take the boy out of the country, but you'll never take the country out of the boy...

    I agree. A footballer would have been far more representative of the real economic and emotional relationship between our two countries.

    I'd have proposed Jermaine Pennant.

    Good news for Doyle. Maik Taylor's been released by Birmingham and, presuming Foster wants to find another Premier League club, Doyle could be #1 next season.

    Carr will be offered a new contract and Fahey will have a little less competition with Larsson and Bowyer leaving.

    Long time since anyone posted in this thread, anyhow good to see Colin Doyle keep a clean sheet against Wolves today in FA Cup. Brought off an amazing double save in dying seconds to deny Wolves a certain winner. He looked assured throughout the game although he didn't have a lot to do. I thought this lad was going to be a regular for Ireland when I saw him about 4 years ago. His seems to have stayed too long at Birmingham for his own good, although he has a decent manager now who seems to give him a few games. Still not too late for him to become a full international

    Maik Taylor was sent out on loan during the week, so Hughton obviously rates him ahead of Taylor

    Surely this lad deserves to be no 3 if not higher??

    Didnt realise he was first choice at Bham now.

    No, Myhill is still #1, Doyle plays the Europa and FA Cup games. Mind you, with some of his performances recently he must be pushing hard for a spot in the first team. I think Stephen Henderson might be third choice by the time the Euros come around. Joe Murphy has also been getting rave reviews at Coventry, plus Randolph and Forde haven't done anything wrong. A lot of competition for that third shirt at the moment, and that's with Paddy Kenny and Brian Murphy both out of contention.

    Doyle saved a Mata penalty tonight in Birmingham's FA Cup replay against Chelsea. Stopped Mata in a one-on-one as well. Birmingham lost 2-0 though.

    BBC updates mentioning Doyle:

    Birmingham will be the happier of the two sides at the break. Juan Mata should have put Chelsea ahead in the first couple of minutes when he was one-on-one, but hit his shot straight at goalkeeper Colin Doyle.
    Colin Doyle dives to his left to save Juan Mata's penalty, which is at a comfortable height for the keeper.
