Are people taking the piss about Duff!? He was brilliant in qualifying for 02 and was genuinely world class around then. Always felt Mourinhio ruined his creativity at Chelsea.

I suppose it's the years and years of him not doing very much and wasn't he playing as left back for Ireland for his latter years? He was amazing for a few seasons then just bang average.

Agree, Strachan did same with McGeady

Last time I saw Aiden in a green jersey was the match in Warsaw, where we had them under the cosh for the last 15 minutes and just needed a goal to qualify and he kept ballooning crosses over the byline and had a red face like an aul lad playing up in Bushy Park. Very frustrating for all the natural talent he had. 

Wasted potential and will only really be remembered for the goal against Georgia. Should have stayed out in Russia, even though he was getting death threats towards the end. Wasted away at Everton instead of playing ball and that was the ending of him. 

Oh yeah, the game where he landed a peach of a cross on Keogh's head for a nod in, who then somehow managed to miss. A real "balloon" of a cross alright.

You don't half talk some amount of nonsense. McGeady was our most important player from 2010-14, if you'll only remember him for the Georgia goals then that doesn't speak to anything more than your own lack of intelligence.

2010 to 2014, come off it pal, peak Trapattoni 4-4-2 sh*te. Those were anus horrible for Irish football. Our best performance was scuttering a nil all in Moscow when Russia should have pullemeled us 6 or 7 nil. Taken to the cleaners by Spain, Germany, Croatia and very nearly done by Kazakhstan and Armenia. That was the only decent cross since McGeady came on, but he put 6-7 crosses and corners 30 feet over when we needed cool heads and a bit of composure. Sorry but McGeady never reached his potential. What would his obituary say? Less scummy than Stokes, but similar waste of natural talent. He was linked to AC Milan in 2007 don't forget.


Remember the play off against France in Paris, we had a free kick in a very good position in the last minute. McGeady wasted it as usual. Think Dunne was actually unmarked in the box at the time.

Yea fair, he definitely wasn’t great in the latter years. His peak was so far ahead of McGeady tho (who I liked too).

If I recall with Duff, brilliant breath of fresh air when he first broke into the team about 96/97 when he was also involved in Malaysia as well. Never really clicked as a striker which McCarthy had him playing as for a while. Injured a fair bit in the 2002 qualifying campaign. Very decent world cup but probably suffered a bit during the Kerr/Stan era and then things winding down in the Trap era anyway. His brilliant pass through for Keane in Paris is the last big Duff moment I can recall. After that more of a veteran, and truth be told we would have been better not qualifying for Euro 2012.

The revisionism here is insane. Wacko

I've been at nearly every home game, and many aways, since 2001 and Duff was without doubt the best player we had in that period. I thought he was always appreciated in the stands though, unlike Keane and McGeady (which is just a poor reflection on our fans and of how entitled/deluded they are).

Duff was class in his last season with Blackburn and first season with Chelsea. Think there were a couple of injuries that did him in. If he had of kept the same ability as in that 01/02/03  period he could have played for barca or Real he was that good.

I also remember that Duff didn't set the world alight for the first couple of years. He was considered a bit wasteful, no right foot etc.
Remember specifically one game in the stands and people shouting to get him taking off he has two left feet etc.
First game where it was "ok this guy is the business" was Andorra 3-0 in Barcelona. 2-3 years after his debut.

Yeah took him a while to get going for Ireland -  IIRC was fairly bit part for the 2000-01 campaign despite already being 21-22 years old. From Japan on wards, was our best performer for next 8 years though.

Released by Hibs after an injury hit year at the club. That might be it for his playing career now.

If that is the end for Aiden, and assuming Shane Long is finishing up as expected, that will leave James McClean as the only member of the Euro 2012 squad still playing professional football. It wasn't that young a squad, only McClean and Gibson were under 25.
