Who do you suggest we play instead of him that is currently in the squad?

This is the list of midfielders named for the two upcoming games. 

Alan Browne is injured. 

Midfielders: Alan Judge (Ipswich Town), Alan Browne (Preston North End), Glenn Whelan (Aston Villa), Jeff Hendrick (Burnley), Conor Hourihane (Aston Villa), Luca Connell (Bolton Wanderers), Josh Cullen (Charlton Athletic*), Robbie Brady (Burnley), Callum O’Dowda (Bristol City), James McClean (Stoke City), Ronan Curtis (Portsmouth).

We need at least a draw from this game and to me it appears that from that list of players we have to play Whelan in front of the back four, with Hendrick and Hourihane playing a bit further forward.

well it's only him or Josh Cullen.

Or we can play Hourihane there, worked well for Villa today.


I think we would be f**king murdered if we start Hourihane there, I felt the second half today bears this out.

I would disagree. Mount and Wilson were both extremely quiet today for Derby and as Derby’s two best attacking players you have to give Hourihane credit for that.

Mount and Wilson had plenty opportunity to show their talent, it was the occasion that got the best of them.Every time Derby attacked in the last thirty minutes there was a massive gap between the defence and the midfield, we can't give Eriksen that.
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.

Aye sure Whelan played well in that role in the first leg against WBA, no coincidence that he didn’t play a single minute in their next two games.

We know his limitations, but who else from that list of players would you be remotely confident in of attempting to defend the space that Eriksen thrives in?

Unless Mick goes all Martin O'Neill and throws Robbie Brady in midfield with McClean on the wing, I can't help but see how Whelan won't start.

He obviously had a nightmare for West Brom's goal, but he was excellent for the rest of that game. He wasn't picked in the next two for tactical reasons, they went gung-ho, but he should have been brought in for the last twenty today. Derby's lack of composure cost them in the end. They had plenty chances, they just needed a cool head.

Jedinak would have been a better option to bring on especially as he is a more commanding figure. I think you are exaggerating when you mention Derby had plenty of chances, they really didn’t.

Anyway I wouldn’t hold out much hope of Whelan getting anywhere close to Eriksen. Here’s hoping he picks up an injury before the match.

Whelan = an actual sitting mid with vast experience

Cullen = a sitting midfielder with no caps

Connell = sitting midfielder with no caps. And he is also toddler.

Those are our options and it's not really a decision to be honest.

I don't mean shots, I mean they had the ball in Villa's half in promising situations and made a balls of it. Quite often it was Mount or Wilson who panicked and chose the wrong option.
Yeah, Jedinak could have been an option too. They definitely needed something. It was like Smith felt they could score again. Great to watch though!

Played well today. He's always been good for goals and assists, but his general involvement in games has been much better the last 7/8 times I've watched him. He really seems to be imposing himself more and looking to move the ball around rather than just get involved high up the pitch. He's an important player for them, as illustrated by the fact he has more goals and assists than McGinn and Grealish despite playing in a deeper position than them, which is very impressive when you think about it.
We're decent enough..

Because that is the correct pronunciation! I do find 'Whorihane' a little grating, but that's because all the Hourihanes I was familiar with(including Conor's cousins) pronounce it as such. I didn't realise there was another way to pronounce it. 
 In reality though, we all get far too precious about these pronunciations in Ireland, especially as there always has been regional variations. In Cork city you have Coughlans who pronounce their name as 'Cawlan', in West Cork they would be 'Cocklan'. In West Cork you have Minihane, pronounced Mine-a-hen, thirty miles up the road that becomes 'Men-a-hane'. In Kerry it becomes f**king Moynihane!
We give out about the way the English pronounce  Cahill/Kayhill and Moran/Mow-ran, but we have similar variations throughout Ireland and it seems we did long before the English even arrived. Listen to the same  names being pronounced in the Munster, Connaught and Ulster dialects of Irish, for example.

Hu-ban does get on my tits, but it is the Anglicised form of Ó Húbáin, so it is probably the spelling that needs to change if anything!
