True. If we had brought him on with 20 mins to go when we were 4 nil up as suggested we indeed probably would have lost the game. Good job we didn't, narrow escape.

It certainly appears that's what Kenny gave him over the last couple of games alright.

Agreed and maybe that's what he needs. He needs to knuckle down now at club and international level to force his way in to the first team, he has the talent imo. For now, within the Irish set up, he is probably the back up to Robinson. If he starts getting regular first team minutes with Brighton, which he is well capable of imo, then it will be another nice headache for the manager.

Nonsense.  Having a hot celebrity girlfriend and a load of instagram followers is all that matters.
Well the Germans beat them 13-0 and the Czechs beat them 7-0 so that suggests they are tightening things up at the back

Himself and Idah really need to move on loan in Jan to try and get regular games. Simple as that.

He's very much part of Brightons squad but you do wonder does he need the regular run of games and would dropping a level suit him. The League Cup game against Swansea had me thinking if he was playing every week against that opposition he'd do damage and develop properly.

They are the future and it's no harm to see Ogbene come in Robinson step forward. Will take the heat off some of the younger lads think the fact we produced f**k all attackers was being used as a stick to beat Connolly Idah and Parrott with. 21 20 and 19 respectively they are all still very young.

he is part of their squad but he simply isnt going to play weekly or anything close to it. If Maupay Wellbeck and Trossard are all fit they are ahead of him. Sure he can sit on the bench but i think he should be pushing a move and start playing and scoring. hes standing still right now.

I don't disagree but does Potter agree? It's hard as a young player to turn around to your manager and say "I want to drop to the Championship" if hes telling you your very much part of his plans. Not a dig at Potter at all the 3 mentioned above are older and have more experience then Connolly. he's still firmly part of Potters plans despite all the off field drama which tells you he properly rates him.

In fairness Potter has given him chances but he hasn't really taken them in the PL. This leads to him only getting small amounts of gametime which itself makes it hard to make any real impact. so what does he do. i think he just needs to go somewhere where he would be guaranteed to start most weeks. start scoring again and progress.

Anyone notice how hungry Parrott was when he came on? He pressed and pushed to get in behind. He had the big between the teeth. And, for me, he showed how has learned lessons that Connolly has not yet done. 

All the talk of Parrott's attitude and friends has calmed a lot over the last few months and he seems to have landed at MK Dons fit and hungry and it is showing on the pitch with his goals and assists there. Then, he comes into Ireland camp and his roles for us in the two games have been brief but positive. And they have been very energetic. 

Let him be an example to Connolly. We needed Connolly for a spark away to Georgia after he burst onto the scene with his goals against Spurs. We don't need him as much now with the options we have to play behind a striker and the set up with two narrower attacking midfielders as opposed to wide forwards. It's up to him to play his way back into Kenny's plans. I think Kenny has done the right thing with him this window. 

As well as Parrott, I'd also point to Ogbene and McGrath last night. Ogbene was okay but showed signs of something. I thought McGrath did a really good job of covering for Hendrick, working tirelessly off the ball and getting involved in attacks and presses in a positive manner. Compare that to Connolly's first half against Azerbaijan at home.

We need to be careful not to throw the baby out with the bath water here, yes he seems to have some issues with his temperament/resolve, but he clearly has talent and the fact Brighton gave him a 23k a week contract points to that. We can all see what he needs to do, but I dont think overegging the negativity is going to do much good. He's been given a wake up call by both his club and international manger now, let's just see how he responds to that without resorting to insulting the kid. I still think he is a very exciting prospect if he gets his head right and that air of arrogance that perhaps some on here respond negatively to can sometimes be the thing that marks out a real genuine top level player. He doesnt lack for confidence.

Good news
Hopefully no niggly injuries get in the way, this is a great opportunity as the team are playing very well. He will get minutes and chances to score.
