    People wrongly forget the great save he made (to bail Finnan out) very early on and the great save he made, tipping a shot onto the bar I think, just before half time. He was at fault for their second I think, getting beaten to a cross by their centre-forward, but other than that I thought he was OK. Finnan had a shocker and Andy O'Brien was pretty poor too.

    There was one game before that Cyprus game where I got worried about him,it might have been the Dutch game that we lost 4 nil, but I remember thinking that his communication skills with the defence was ridiculously bad and I think that was alot of the problem in the Cyprus game too. Not saying he should be the only scapegoat for it but Im not gonna be screaming for his return to the squad any time soon

    Paddy Kenny is a good keeper, a keeper needs a consistant run of games to build his confidence up and build a rapport with his back four.

    He has always been a good keeper but I think Westwood will be a lot better than him, if he isn't already.

    He is already I reckon, by quite a bit. Good enough to hold his own in the Premiership I reckon.

    He's not going to be playing in the Premiership anytime soon if he stays with Coventry. Maybe he is just being polite but it looks like he wants to extend his contract.

    Surely coming close to a call up based on current form? Defo playing better than Joe Murphy at the moment and should be at least threatening Westwood

    Been thinking the exact same thing myself. Trap doesn't like change though so I doubt Kenny will ever get a go.

    He's worth a look but I think Trap might frown on his chequered personal history. Darren Randolph at Motherwell must be in contention by now too.

    Glad to hear he's playing well after his troubles. But tbh, I reckon any future paragraph dedicated to this guy's international career will feature the word 'Nicosia', the number '5' and not a lot else.

    Based on his performances he's probably just as good as Westwood, but he's the sort of guy you wouldn't want as your No. 3 goalkeeper, because I could see him stomping out if Westwood was selected ahead of him.

    If Westwood or Given was injured I'd have him in as a backup but both Murphys seem like they are better personalities around the place as a third guy.

    Aye that's a very good point. In fact, knowing his personality, we're probably better off not calling him up until it's a case of him being 2nd or 1st choice to keep the door open. He's bound to us anyway from the Nicosia game so now worries about him running off

    Conceding only 2 goals in 7 league games is some going though.

    It sure is, but I don't think at his age he'll be included in an Ireland squad again. Randolph may have a chance though.

    Sure some people want Hart dropped for conceding a whole 2 goals in 7.

    Agree with IrishFan - it's fair to say the order is Given, Westwood and AN Other (at the moment J Murphy) - and I don't think Kenny would be a good third choice, need someone who's a good traveller and personality. The two Murphy, Randolph and maybe even David Forde would be better choices in that situation. If we had a dire injury problem though he'd be worth a look.

    I believe that he is playing well for QPR and Warnock seems to have great time for him.

    This article claims he is set for a recall, which I find hard to believe given who the manager is.
