Seems the Elite Round Qualifier games will be played at Ferrycarrig Park which suits me perfectly, although scheduling the first game for 330 in Wexford when there's a senior international @ 745 in Dublin is a bit short sighted (I'd have gone to both). As it is, I'll still catch the other 2 games (Saturday 25th & Tuesday 28th March). Looking forward to it. To anyone familiar with attending U19 games, do ye think there will be a need to book in advance or are you safe enough to just turn up and pay on the day!

Ah I'd say yer good to just pay at the gate.
Never seems to be a crowd at these matches on the few occasions we see them televised.

Now, will they be televised for us who can't get there?!

If they're played at a LOI ground they've no excuse not to stream it.

First match is next Wednesday, so we may get a squad announcement today or tomorrow.
Will keep an eye on the socials!

Vata, Zefi, Moore and one of O'Mahony or Umeh makes for a very strong front 4 at that level. In fact there's no position that stands out as being a bit weak, other than maybe GK?

Very strong squad.
Should get streams for these, seeing as we're hosts.

Get to Wexford for the matches if you can!

Looking at our CB options at this age group I wouldn’t envy the manager trying to pick CBs for the senior squad in 5/6 years time. Heffernan not in that squad alone and tbh that’s completely on merit if you look who’s ahead of him. 

Loads of small countries are really going to struggle for good CBs down the line. Hard to produce them with the way football has gone. We won’t be in that situation.

Wonder why we name such a small squad?
20 players for three matches with every chance of suspensions and injuries.
I assume there's a standby list (a keeper, for a start!) but you would think bringing 23+ would make more sense...getting more lads involved.

Think you can only name 20 players and once the games start not sure if you can call up replacements. Last season the U19s were hit hard with injuries and not sure we called anyone up as replacements.

Looks a strong squad - lot of firepower. 
6 players based in Ireland, 1 in Scotland, 9 in England & 4 in Italy.
13 played LOI academy football.
Make it 15 born in Ireland, 5 outside.

That’s a strong squad with a good mix of home-based and players playing abroad.

You’d imagine those playing at home will move to another league over the next 3 or 4 years too.

Good squad, interesting that half of them will be underage again next year. Possibly we might struggle a bit physically because of this, but home advantage and the absence of a big hitter in the group (are we the big hitter at Under 17 and Under 19 these days?!) means we should still have a fighting chance of qualification.

And great to see Sean Moore in of course - I think it was fairly clear after his gesture to the Glentoran fans which way that one was going but good to have it confirmed all the same.

I think we are!
Both the 17's and 19's in the UEFA top-10 seedings.
17's may even rise a spot or two after their recent exploits.

This is a winnable group.  Very excited for the games and the attacking talent on show should bring the folks out to Wexford to see them.

Best XI is probably:

O'Mahoney

Vata-----Zefi-----Umeh

McJannet---Ferizaj

Ryan----Grehan---Curtis---Abankwah

Byrne

Switch Vata and Zefi around. Never liked when Vata plays out wide and always looked better when playing as the ten. Wouldn't be surprised if Moore goes straight in at RW and having himself and Zefi as the wide players who like to cut inside on their stronger foot.

Similar it's probably gonna be Abankwah at CB with Curtis playing RB.
