    Madness, Reid's link play with Keane was something I was looking for tonight. Miller and Whealan better than Carsley and Andy Reid. Don't make me laugh.

    The worst part is that from Trap's comments he seems to think Miller is some sort of midfield destroyer. Brutal.

    He's our most creative player since Brady - maybe Trapattoni is just trying out another option other than the best available - I know Liam Brady himself is always praising Andy Reid so lets hope it's just to try out something different for a friendly. Better be that anyways!

    Strange one alright, not just to leave him out but then to have millar on stand-by

    I read an article in the paper at the weekend where the Trap was saying what an important role Andy had to play. strange to leave him out after that

    Terrible decision IMO, Andy Reid is ten times more talented than Miller and Whelan. Really expected Trap to play Andy in the centre, if I was Andy I'd be gutted.

    Yes, can't understand it either. reid does need to lose a few poinds/stone but hes way better than Miller/Reid.

    Why Robbie Keane is on ahead of Murphy I do not know. Has Trap watched keane play recently?

    Ive watched both of Keane's 2 competitive matches this season against lige and Sunderland. He was absolutely terrible in both hence he was subsituted in both.

    Last season Ramos dropped him. The stats show that when Keane plays for Spurs their average performance/points return dropped. When was the last time he had a good game?

    Murphy is no goal hanger but hes excellent in the air and can shoot from long range. he is excellent at keeping possession of the ball something Keane cannot do.

    Unfortunately Murphy's job is to score goals. Think he scored 3 or 4 last season, where as Keane scored 23. Slight difference.

    Keane scored 13 in the Premiership last season, 4 of which I think were penos.

    We will see the great Keano tonight, hope you are all right. No excuses tonight then!!!

    If you think Murphy is a better player than Robbie Keane, you need a brain transplant.

    Bashing Robbie Keane is the most redundant thing to be posted on this forum and how it still rears its head the odd time is beyond me.

    Murphy however did have a decent season last year for Sunderland and deserves a place in the squad but still has much to do to dislodge Keane/Doyle but would be a genuine option on the left in the absence of duff and hunt

    Keanes record speaks for itself, I will always stand up for the guy in an Irish shirt. No doubt he is our best striker.

    Strange decision on reid but before making judgement lets see how things go tonight, whos to say Trap is not just trying out something different, the right game to try it in. I think Reid looked alot similar in the game last sat than he has for a long time.

    What stats?
    You said the same thing in the other thread about Keane, and when I called you on it, you couldn't back it up. So put up or shut up, where are these mythical stats you speak of?

    I laughed at the whole post but this bit in particular got me. Ah sure we might as well play him and lump it forward all night because he's good in the air

    Lond balls like that would be bread and butter to any decent International centre half worth their salt

    And every player can shoot from long range. Murphy got a couple of rakers last season and you obviously thought he was Roy of the Rovers after it. Keane has his faults but is twice the player Murphy is (albeit completely different players) but you are the one suggesting a like for like change.

    The even funnier thing is that I wouldn't mind seeing how a Murphy and Keane partnership would look.
    Top Breeders recommend drinkfeckarse....
