  1. Israel (H) friendly - Sept 11

    Will Sinn Fein pay the massive fine the IFA will get from UEFA for not playing a mandated friendly??
  2. Central America tour

    And that is all of our first choice midfield now missing, Thompson and Whyte should get plenty of game time now. Interestingly our squad is now made up of 20 NI born players and 2 English born, it is a very long time from we had a squad made up like that.
  3. Central America tour

    Jordan Thompson and Shayne Lavery called up to replace Cameron McGeehan (injured) & Ollie Norwood https://www.irishfa.com/news/2018/may/shayne-lavery-and-jordan-thompson-called-up-to-northern-ireland-senior-squad?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter
  4. Central America tour

    https://www.barnsleyfc.co.uk/news/2018/may/mcgeehan-nire/ If McGeehan gives 100% for the shirt he has my backing.
  5. Central America tour

    No Jamal Lewis, thats surprising.
  6. Central America tour

    Its just a pity the IFA wouldn't let people know this via their social media accounts, lots of us are interested in the squad announcements.
  7. Central America tour

    The Belfast Telegraph in their story about Gavin Whyte last week said the squad would be announced today, it looks like they were chatting s***e again.
  8. Central America tour

    I would expect at the very least Smyth, Peacock-Farrell and Lewis in the squad, we have no clue yet how many senior players will be missing, as well as the two you have mentioned, i think McLaughlin and Saville are injured as well, we also have the possibility of Norwood & Magennis being in the playoff finals, so that would be them out of the tour as well. I am really hoping that there is a surprise name or two in the squad.
  9. Central America tour

    Norwood and big Josh both involved in the playoffs, if either/both of them make their respective playoff finals that would rule them out of the tour.
  10. Central America tour

    The 19:45 kick off time is the default time on the IFA website when any fixture is announced, it will be changed when the kick off time is confirmed.
  11. South Korea

    Its the modern way of playing football, your two centre backs split, your fullbacks push up to near the half way line and your deepest lying midfielder drops in between the two centre backs to pick up possession and start your attack, the idea is create triangles which should give the player in possession two options for a pass and make it easier to move the ball around, but it requires players to be good on the ball and be brave with it something which isn't our strong point bar the likes of Saville and Davis.
  12. South Korea

    The one thing that needs to be taken into account with Lewis is that he is a converted winger, his entire youth career was spent playing as a left winger, it has only been in this last year or so that he has been switched to a full back/wing back role at Norwich so the defensive side of his game is going to be a work in progress, at Norwich they sometimes play him as a left back in a back four and others times he plays as a wing back with 3 centre backs.
  13. South Korea

    A fantastic result, they were as you would expect technically excellent and did cut through us at times only to be denied by grea last ditch tackling or blocks. That result need to be put in perspective, our starting eleven today included a goalkeeper making his international debut, a centre back who hasn't played very much over the last few months for a team that is badly struggling, a left back making his international debut who has played a total of 16 professional games, a left winger making his starting debut for NI, a midfielder who has spent the last few months on the bench at Fulham, another who was making only his 2nd international apperance, when you take all these things into account it really was an exceptional result.
  14. South Korea

    Around 50 tickets left, it should be sold out by Saturday.
  15. Starting XI v South Korea

    Carson McLaughlin Evans Cathcart Lewis Evans Norwood Saville Dallas Washington Jones
