This is actually an important game for Kenny. Anything scoreless is bad. A scoreless defeat will create almost irreparable damage for him. He has to be courageous in his team selection, and potentially drop some players who he would consider integral. This is about creating a team which fits a strategy, rather than vice-versa. As such, it might be time to look at Jack Byrne in the Wes role. Luton Town were recently in the non-league setup, they are not now, and are in the Championship. if Collins can be adapted to a system, why cant he score goals?

The midfield may be missing their obvious holding option in McCarthy, but can we persist with Hendrick and Hourihane? What has that achieved over seven games? James McClean once was our top scorer in a qualifying campaign, didn't Robbie Keane get dropped during the Euro 2016 campaign? Is it worth going back to the Robbie Brady well?

Yes, we are seeing a bit from Molumby etc, but this is losing relevance as we are no losing games in which we are not under serious pressure. I cant help but be concerned.

Really looking forward to this game! Hopefully Knight and Byrne start.

I would be tempted to call up Ronan and Parrott from the under 21s.

Collins looked lively has to start, Jack Byrne too.

Still reckon the 433 is killing us, needs to put 2 up front or we'll struggle to score we have very few players in the box when attacking.

100% agree, I like what Stephen is trying to do and we are playing well but not creating, our strikers have to come deeper and deeper. Or wingers are not creating anything and not getting in the box. We need to move to 3-5-2 put Doherty as the right wing back mclean/Manning on the left and play two strikers.

You could play a front 2 in a 352 or a 433 with 3 up front but if those players are Horgan, Idah and mcclean it really won't make a difference.

Glad this is the last game of 2020. I really relished these fixtures but utterly fed up now with the year.

Pray that we sign off a poxy year with a result.

The Bulgarians will be confident of nicking something in Dublin.

If we go with the same "approach" we will get the same outcome. Another disjointed mess.

Maybe he learns how to set up a football team in the next few days but I doubt it. Lets persist with a 4-3-3 and our tactics which clearly dont amount to anything more than pass the ball, and players completely unsuited to doing even that basic demand.
