    Post Mortem

    Was thinking on the way over for this game without the like of Brunt (albeit for good), Lafferty & Big G we would struggle an so it proved. Plenty of energy in the side but no real zip or creation of anything in attack. Felt we deserved a point at least, having watched back the highlights that chance Davis misses at 0-0 is criminal, also Grigg's header off the post could have landed to any number of NI players but bounced stright into the keepers hands. We will be up against it in Bosnia especially being so light in attack. Can see a 0-0 draw myself.

    Squad v Austria (A) and Bosnia (A)

    Read this morning Bayern Munich player Alaba has been ruled out for Austria, boost!

    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    Agree with this. Also if there was anyway we could be treated as human beings and allowed to attend it as any other away game, i might have been tempted.

    Starting XI v Israel

    Michael has already said he'll make a few changes but not whole sale. Not sure if he will go with two up front myself although would like to see it myself. With the like of McLaughlin, J Evans, Davis not getting loads of club game time, i can see them playing. I think it will be close to this: BPF McLaughlin J Evans Cathcart Lewis Whyte C. Evans Davis Saville Dallas/J. Jones Grigg
  5. Don't see many goals in this myself. 1-0 Cathcart.

    Israel (H) friendly - Sept 11

    I'm guessing in case they get their balls rolled?
  7. I know why and understand his reasons for leaving them out, but i would be getting Paul Smyth & Gavin Whyte capped in the next round of nations league games for this reason also.

    Stand corrected, got him mixed up with someone else, Dallas possibly.

    Squad v Bosnia (and Israel)

    Just noticed from this weekend, some of the players not making the team at their clubs included J Evans, Davis, Norwood, Ward & Mcginn of the top of my head. Slight concern that but hoping they can fight their way back in, in the coming weeks.

    Squad v Bosnia (and Israel)

    Juventus playmaker Pjanic has been known to play left, right or no 10 for them. He's far and away their best player in my opinion and could cause any team damage.If he plays right wing i wouldn't be delighted with young Lewis marking him in his first competitive game....

    Squad v Bosnia (and Israel)

    I was at that game and it was a horrible watch. McNair has came on a lot since then in terms of both experience and ability not to mention it was a friendly, i'd be more than happy to trust him at RB. If we could win this Bosnia game and nick a draw in Austria we'd have a great chance of doing something in this group.

    Squad v Bosnia (and Israel)

    We can shuffle about at the back i mean Paddy Mcnair can play both at RB & CB. Also Jonny Evans can play at LB if we are desperate although he is a rock at CB for us. For the Bosnia game i would go with as solid a team as possible. In terms of this mini 3 team nations league it's important we don't lose the first game. For me: Carson McNair J Evans Cathcart Lewis/Hughes Norwood Saville Davis Ward Dallas Lafferty Ward and Dallas can run the legs of themselves with Magennis and Jones/ Mcginn waiting to come on, Boyce or Grigg could impact from the bench also.
