Yeah, to be an elite athlete you need to live and work like an elite athlete. Maybe this is why Byrne hasnt progressed as expected

well Mac saw enough in him to cap him, and to get a cap from playing domestic you have to be the top player around which he was, comfortably. His socialising choices however left a bad smell and the hint he might be a tad underwhelmed by the Ronaldo level dedication model.

I can't imagine he has a 6 pack under his shirt and really for a full time sports person conditioning has to be a given. He's not fat or anything and no doubt he is more athletic than most of us......but we are not pro footballers!

I remember Danny Murphy after he went from a bit part player to having a great year for Liverpool saying that Houlier got him to lose 2lbs and it transformed him.  Not a huge amount of weight but it shows how small the margins are at elite level.

He will get away with it because of his skill levels at lower levels but really he should have gone to the Championship and challenged himself. He definitely has the football and then he would have had to focus on everything else ......took the soft option (which may not be that soft in the end).

Yeah a 6 pack is really not that indicative of the fitness needed for football.

Well documented that Rovers got Byrne into the best nick of his career to date. There isn't an issue there

You probably would. Most people flucuate 2lbs either way a day due to food.

2lbs making a difference seems mad.

I would hope he means 2kg, not 2lbs. Unless Danny Murphy was required to cut weight before each game, 2lbs would make no difference. He'd have lost that by the end of a training session.

Subbed again at halftime. Currently losing 2-1 to the bottom side.

Was a bit harsh his subbing in the first game. Not sure how he performed today. It's early days but.... Jesus... 10-minutes of research into this club says it's a bogey move in anyone's book. Especially for someone like Jack who has a history of trouble with clubs both of his and the clubs doing.

I'd say you would get good odds on these guys having a new manager by the end of the season. Basket case.

To be fair Apoel made 5 substitutions at half time.

Cardiff, maybe-only Mick's contract expires in the summer there, unless they offer him a new one.

Cant see Cardiff taking the risk to be honest, even if mick is there.

I wish Byrne well but he's simply not the answer to the problems ireland have at the moment, if fact, he'd probably just make them worse.
