    Probably a bit late for that Scotland call-up.

    I would go for it with Connolly on the left, Doherty on the right and have James McCarthy and josh as DM pairing

    I just can't get enthusiastic about James McCarthy.

    Watched the match. James did ok without being particularly impressive. He botched a few passes but maybe that’s understandable due to rust.

    His best moment came around the 70th minute, where he was able to pursue Almiron (not an easy guy to catch) and put in a great sliding tackle. It was an extended sprint to make the challenge and shows he is fit and fast.

    Believe it or not, it was the first time he's completed 90 minutes in three years!

    When you put it that way, it really is understandable he’s putting international soccer on the back burner until he’s truly playing properly on a regular basis.

    I was slightly wrong there, he did play 90 minutes in a league cup game in August, however last Saturday was his first 90 minutes in a premier league game since December 2016

    In an ideal world it should work conversely, the least we should require of our international representatives is that they can demonstrably play 90 mins

    Hopefully Whelan can get a Championship club. Mick McCarthy can surely recommend him to an old contact of his at that level.

    That said, League One is probably on a par with SPL so that would be as sufficient- but as I type that, it doesn't really feel sufficient.

    McCarthy in for Whelan would be no bad thing, at all, even though Whelan has performed admirably at times for us, including against Denmark.

    Watched McCarthy’s latest match. Once again looked OK but a bit of a passenger. Decent enough positioning to neutralize opposition but doesn’t look very influential right now. Clearly still rusty, Hopefully he can get a run in the team now— we could use him in March assuming he can find a bit of form between now and then.

    Milivojevic given a straight red for violent conduct today, which usually carries a 3 game ban. Should see more game time for McCarthy.

    Starts again. If he doesn't play against Slovakia it will be in violation of the Geneva convention

    He made a great tackle and pass in the lead up to the second Palace goal.
