im not sure he offers that much. i have never really been impressed anytime i have seen him. even for Preston. not the midfield general we have been looking for all these years.

We will have to agree to disagree, but I have thought for a while, based on what I have seen for club and country, that he is somewhat short of what is needed.

Well that's plainly nonsense. He's obviously not brilliantly technically gifted, but his passing, control etc last night were absolutely fine. Just because you have a certain idea in your head about a player doesn't mean you can simply apply it to their every performance, even when it doesn't tie to the reality of how they actually played.
We're decent enough..

His passing wasn’t fine though, and you saying so doesn’t change that. I really wish every Irish player was as good as you make them out to be, unfortunately they are not. It isn’t that his passing last night was atrocious, but it always made the player receiving the ballto take an extra touch or put them under pressure. It regularly lead to us coughing up possession soon afterwards. It slowed us down way too much when we did keep it. This is in a friendly where there was next to no pressure on him with the ball. He is extremely limited compared to our other options, and lord knows they are limited enough themselves!
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

I'm not "saying" it, I f*cking saw it, he hardly misplaced a pass all game. As I've said, I don't believe Browne is a great footballer, but he played pretty well last night. You wishing that he didn't just to indulge your own sad little sense of misery doesn't make it so.

Calm down, dear! I thought he was poor, you didn’t. You think our squad is infallible, I don’t. Don’t take everything so seriously, for your own good, pet!

He was pretty good I thought against Charlton last week. Didn't seem particularly great at anything but was involved in everything and was captaining the side. A decent all-rounder. Just keep him off set-pieces though, they were dreadful. 

Personnel won't change anything though. We need to setup to actually play football and encourage our midfielders to actually get the ball and not be afraid to make passes. Until then it makes no difference, it'll be the same sh*t over and over. Someone like Cullen who I get to watch regularly is comfortable on the ball and plays great exciting football but he won't make a jot of difference in an Irish side. We've already got lads who are decent to good Championship level players, you wouldn't know it in green though.
