    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    Had a look through those training pictures, the only player i don't see is Jamal Lewis. That might explain why Bobby Burns has been called up.

    I think he has named 28 players (originally 29 as Liam Donnelly was also called up) because he is expecting a few to pull out through injuries.

    244 minutes of playing time, so not even 3 full matches

    Its alright in saying that, but if you've watched some of our players in the last two games who aren't playing for their clubs you can see the sharpness just isn't there. There are quite a few who seem to have taken a dislike to Vassell and he is being judged on a whole 32 minutes of action in his two sub appearances. Today Michael has named 5 strikers in his squad, Lafferty has played 19 minutes from the last international break, Magennis 209 minutes; Paul Smyth 0 minutes; Liam Boyce 460 minutes; Kyle Vassell 268 minutes; so two out of the five strikers have barely kicked a ball in the last month, it doesn't make much sense to replace one of those who have been playing with Conor Washington has had 16 minutes of action in this last month. If all of them were playing regularly then based on what Washington has done in the past he would IMO be in easily ahead of both of them but that is not the situation at the moment. Having said all that i believe that If Grigg had've been fit i doubt Vassell would have been in the squad.

    According to Michael, its through lack of game time, but if one or two forwards pull out he will be called up.

    UEFA considering international leagues

    Yes, its your head to head record vs the team you are level on points with. Tiebreaker criteria in order is:- 1) Higher number of points obtained in the matches played among the teams in question; 2) Superior goal difference in matches played among the teams in question; 3) Higher number of goals scored in the matches played among the teams in question; 4) Higher number of goals scored away from home in the matches played among the teams in question;

    Post Mortem

    Michael said he was injured in his BBC interview.

    Boyce was injured and couldn't play, its now been confirmed as well that Grigg is probably out of the Bosnia game after his injury tonight, so you might be seeing Vassell on Monday night. Thats a very harsh judgement on Vassell based on 15 minutes.

    Post Mortem

    100% agree, a complete waste of time, we have little attacking threat playing this way, if MON wants the 3 in the middle of the pitch, then play a 3-5-2 with McNair as a right sided cb, Dallas wide on the right and with Lewis wide on the left, that allows you to play Grigg + 1 Other.

    Squad v Austria (A) and Bosnia (A)

    She had the child a few months ago.

    Squad v Austria (A) and Bosnia (A)

    The comments from Michael don't sound great, if it were a serious personal issue, i doubt Michael would be saying "I will address this situation after the international period"

    I was planning to go but at €45 a ticket for a friendly, they can shove it.

    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.

    Bosnia. And Herzegovina too. What are they like?

    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.
