James Collins hopefully a late developer like Grant Holt/Rickie Lambert. Neither stepped up to championship level til late 20s, hopefully Collins steps up next season and becomes option for next few years. Not a lot of Irish strikers playing or scoring regularly at championship level never mind premier league level.

No harm in calling him up, banging in the goals in League One. Would prefer to see him included to Will Keane anyway. Next week who are the strikers we would expect to see included? Long, Maguire, McGoldrick and Collins maybe?

Was long dropped from southampton squad today or is he injured? No sign of him.

Long should be dropped. He needs move to club where he can get regular starts upfront and up his scoring record. McGoldrick has to be called up, only striker scoring regularly in top 2 divisions. Walters in finished. 6 league games and zero goals in 18 months. Maguire and O'Brien mostly played on wing, Will Keane has scored more goals than Maguire this season. Need Bamford to declare but think he will hold out to see what happens with Leeds in premier league next year and if south gate calls him up.

McGoldrick, Collins, Maguire, Keane and Long I think will be called up whether they all deserve the call up is debatable.

 Mick McCarthy reign is nothing about progress. It's about steadying the ship and qualifying us for Euro 2020. 

Progress hopefully will come under Stephen Kenny. to be honest I don't think there's going to be anything comparable between McCarthy and kenny's reign from players to playing style.

First Championship goal and a MOTM award for him tonight. He provided a good target and made lots of really good runs. He'll do well this season if he keeps his performances at that level.
We're decent enough..

Took his goal well. Luton look like a side that will give him plenty of chances to score, especially at home.

I’d be willing to bet that Collins will get more game time this campaign than any other of the debuts last night. He is essentially the player McCarthy has been looking for: 6ft 2, strong in the air, able to hold the ball up and get on the end of a cross. McCarthy was practically yanking himself off when Collins was fouling their centre half yesterday
You asked if I'd be anyone from history, fact or fiction, dead or alive:
I said "I'd be Tony Cascarino, circa 1995"

LOL you're right though. He's pretty much guaranteed to be the first striker to come on now. I think Hogan's days are numbered.

Probably McGoldrick, Maguire / Long (if he gets game time), and Collins

With the likes of Collins available, and the potential for Obafemi and Parrott to come through the ranks, it’s hard to see Hogan and Maguire making squads as easy as they have been. The ball rolling down the line from Hogan’s follow up yesterday, sums it up.
