The amount of game time he has received is one aspect that has concerned me about Kenny.

Genuinely would love to hear Kenny's appraisal of Conor and why he has received so much time on the pitch.

Just to add to this, Kenny is known for his detailed video analysis and stats breakdown..

Once again, what is he seeing in Conor that everyone else seems to be missing?

I'd get over him being invisible but in the 8 games so far there have been two occasions where he has needlessly given the ball away and its resulted in us conceding

Away v Bulgaria  in the first game and England's penalty

I was honestly expecting to see Byrne Knight and Cullen starting tonight.  I thought Kenny was an ambitious manager not afraid to try new players or discard the underperformers.

Alarm bells when I saw that team sheet for me I'm afraid.  Pure conservative and a selection made out of fear.

I think kenny was looking to keep an experienced midfield, which makes sense and is normally a good bet. However we've been saying that hourihane disappears In games far to regularly now.

My concerns too. One thing I thought we were getting under Kenny was that lack of convervatism and having no fear. Not starting Byrne, then waiting so long to introduce him when it was obvious things needed changing has me worried.

Incidentally, would he even come in if Brady hadn't got injured?

spot on, he absolutely bottled it. How can you justify starting Brady and Hourihane time after time when they offer nothing. His interview after wouldn't fill you with confidence either

Whilst I agree he's been pretty dreadful for us I can kind of see why he selected him last night given we had so many out. To be fair he had dropped him for the Wales game but then the rake of withdrawals meant he came back in. Had he not dropped him for that game I would be a lot more concerned.

Totally agree with that assessment, however I think we've seen enough of hourihane now to say hes not good enough. He's been phased out of the villa side more and more. 6 of their last games he spent on the bench and didn't see a second of football and before then he was in and out of the team.

We all know he has a fantastic left foot but even Brady is taking all the set pieces. 

Should be in his prime now and has had a good few chances to show what he can do.

One of the main arguments for picking Brady and Hourihane is the quality of their set pieces.  Fair enough. Play one, not both.  At present Brady looks ahead of Hourihane.

Anonymous again last night. 29 year old Premier League midfielder who should have taken a grip of last nights game but didn't as usual. Knight and Cullen showed last night that they can offer more in the future. Maybe a move in January could kickstart his career again but in terms of stepping up for us I think that'll never happen.
