I'm guessing a 4-3-3 of Robinson McGoldrick Connolly?

McGoldrick pretty much certain for the centre forward spot if he's fit. At the moment it seems like Connolly v McClean for the left forward position and Robinson v Long for the right forward position.

Collins, Hogan, Maguire probably still next in line behind them. Obafemi, Idah and Parrott staying with the Under 21s for now.

I think Idah should be ahead of Maguire Hogan and Collins .

Saw this on balls.ie (I know) but in fairness, I'd say this squad in not far off what we'll get. Looking at that forward line, I think that Idah offers something different to what we have and could be a wildcard choice.

GK: Darren Randolph, Mark Travers, Kieran O'Hara.

DEF: Seamus Coleman, Matt Doherty, Shane Duffy, John Egan, Darragh Lenihan, Dara O'Shea, Enda Stevens, Ryan Manning.

MID: Jeff Hendrick, Alan Browne, Conor Hourihane, Josh Cullen, Jayson Molumby, James McCarthy, Jack Byrne.

FWD: David McGoldrick, Shane Long, Aaron Connolly, Michael Obafemi, Callum Robinson, James McClean, Robbie Brady.

Wouldn't have Lenihan in the squad, preferably Clark (if he gets back fit), or Long. Other than that, I think it's pretty much on the money.
We're decent enough..

Can't much argue with the gk. With def I know Clark is injured but I'd have Long at Burnley ahead of Lenihan.

Mid id have Smallbone ahead of Byrne and Jason Knight ahead of Browne.

Forwards, Brady has barely played this season and I'd have Idah ahead of him just on potential alone.

My thinking is exactly the same

Aaron a starter for me on the left of any attacking formation.
If McClean is picked there ahead of him I'll be disappointed. 
Or Robinson for that matter. 
Connolly offers something different that defenders don't seem to like. 
Like Duff, he wins frees and torments. 
And we know he can score if fed chances. 
Bring on September.

His overall game is getting better each time he plays. 

For his goal he showed some really good pace, good strength and a cool head for a difficult finish.

He is probably already our best attacking option at the moment. We really need Idah and Parrot to show the same progress next season.

Totally agree and he is still only 20.
Brilliant goal.

What's your problem with Darragh Lenihan? Seems to be carving out a decent career at Blackburn yet you consign him to the scrapheap?
