    Post mortem

    The parts in bold are simply ridiculous, i really don't think you have been watching us from the Kingsley Black days and all that we have went through since then, if you want rid of Michael O'Neill, utter madness.

    Bosnia. And Herzegovina too. What are they like?

    I think they need to be very careful with the prices they are charging, they have pretty much hit the limit now in terms of what people are prepared to pay for games.

    The furore over Declan Rice proves beyond any doubt that Nations League games are competitive games, so once you are capped in these games you are tied to that country another reason why the two players you have mentioned need to be capped against Bosnia.

    U21 game was on Thursday night, South Korea game on Saturday.

    Israel (H) friendly - Sept 11

    Will Sinn Fein pay the massive fine the IFA will get from UEFA for not playing a mandated friendly??

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
