Hourihane's experience is immediately undone when he's misplacing passes, not passing at all or going missing for the guts of a game.

We are disadvantaging ourselves by having him on the pitch. 

I'm not disagreeing with you.
I'd have the young lads in who are hungry to deliver and are showing they may have higher ceilings than the experienced(!) lads.
But I believe SK will go with experience for this Faro match.

I'm not disagreeing with you either. Just highlighting the ridiculous use of the word "experience" when it comes to the Irish team. I find it a lazy and vague term that lacks any substance more often than not. 

If younger players put in the performances Hourihane has it would be put down to lack of "experience" and their inclusion in squads would be questioned. Hourihane just keeps getting game time. 

I just can't get my head around how Kenny can rewatch Hourihane's performances for Ireland and not have serious concerns. His first touch against Hungary was to give the ball away. Our "ball playing" midfielder who seems to be a bundle of nerves on the ball unless he's playing against substandard opposition who won't press him.

Hourihane to Sheffield United if report are to go by. Would be a very good move for him.

Hope he gets the start he had at Swansea.

Apart from Villa's promotion season, he's exactly as you describe. He throws in a good game occasionally but does not have the quality or stamina to maintain it. His dead-ball stuff, so often his signature, has also waned. Good luck to him at Sheff Utd, he could do a job for them but more likely he'll flatter before reverting to kind.

Hasn't started for SU since being named in the Sky Bet Team of the Week on the back of his performance against Hull.

this man gets a lot of stick on here. Yes, at the top level he gets shown up but he's a lovely baller as tonight showed. Worked hard too which is a weakness usually. Set the tone early on with interceptions and had a role in 3 goals. Great deliveries too. Well done Conor.
