Yep, 100% and I think he's doing the right thing.
At his age and especially with his record, it's a wise move.

No sign of him today.
Is he injured again?

Hes been plagued with injury for most of his career. You could have a fantastic player in the team but if you can't play him then what's the point.

Same with Brady, really fantastic player but it's a massive risk for teams to sign him.

I can't see either stringing 10 games in a row together going forward to be honest.

McCarthy has actually had a decent run of fitness in recent times.

In his first season at Palace he played in 33 games and was on the bench for the other 5.

Then last year he missed a fair bit of the season on compassionate grounds following the death of father and subsequently lost match fitness and his place in the team on his return. He was only officially unavailable for 3 games through injury.

Brady is a whole other story though. Has looked terrible ever since his knee injury in 2017. Can barley break into a run anymore when he is "fit". The slightest of knocks to his knee and hes gone off. If not the knee hes forever pulling up with muscle injuries from lack of fitness. Cant ever see him getting himself right again.

He'll boss the SP if he stays fit

Him and Cullen makes a decent holding pair

We have a good back 7.

Pity he has little interest in playing for Ireland. Would be very surprised to see him back in green.

He's played for our u17, u18, u19, u21 and has 43 senior caps. Played in a major tournament and would have had dozens of more gaps but for injury. 

Not sure how you get that he has little interes from that?

Agreed. He has serious miles on the clock from playing senior ball from 16. Id hold nothing against him if he decided to step aside.

He did initially but I feel it has waned in recent years as he got older and injuries began to take their toll.

He made himself unavailable under McCarthy for the 2020 qualifiers and again under Kenny for the 2024 qualifiers this year. (I know he came back for the Nations League and later withdrew following the death of his father)

But I'd be surprised to see him back in the squad come next month or even November. I just think hes more interested in minimizing potential injuries and staying fit to prolong his club career these days.

James sacrificed the most out of any player to play for Éire when considering the horrendous abuse he’s subject to week in, week out in Scotland.

If he continues to start for Celtic over the next 2 weeks and Hendrick fails to start a game for Newcastle (especially with Willock out this weekend), then there is an argument to be made that he should start alongside Cullen vs Azerbaijan. 

50/50 for me, but I would be happy enough to see James re-integrated, although he will be 31 in November, so 33 when the 2024 Euros kick off (Jeff has 14 months on him). If he can put his injury problems behind him at Celtic, then he can still play a role going forward, but it's a big if given his previous struggles. At his best, he is as good if not better than any other midfielder in our squad.
