The most James McClean goal you'll ever see. 80 yard hoof down the middle from the keeper and McClean knocks it past the keeper.

Martin O'Neill would be creaming himself over it if he was still in charge.

Another match winning goal by McClean, stepping up the plate and delivering as usual .

A very composed finished from McClean, but awful defending from Rotherham, of what was a simple punt down the field from the goalkeeper.

Energetic, hard working and direct as always. Exactly what we've come to expect from him.

However when Stoke are struggling he fails to hold possession for the team and almost always tries low percentage plays - long shots, hit and hope crosses and so on.

A bit like Duffy you get what you get with James - 100% effort and commitment game after game and he pops up with a goal now and again. It's just a question of whether that alone is enough anymore for any team that wants to play a patient game and keep the ball.

Some bromance you have there horsebox...

However we've all seen mcclean play 100 times and we know he's not Messi. 

He's a hard working limited player but if he's putting in a shift again he may be a good option for ireland

Just enjoying the reaction.

Seems some are only happy when players are not doing well.

I don't really get the calls to drop McClean from the starting line up. I thought he played very well in Slovakia, should've done better with the chance but his crossing was a lot better than it was before. 

Seems to be doing well for his club so he's earned his starting place in the side. I know Connolly has a strong case to start games but I would nearly drop Hourihane for McClean instead especially if we're up against a better side.

So you'd drop a centre midfielder for a left winger?

Where's the logic in that?

McClean style of play doesn't suit a possession based brand of football which is fairly evident, hence the calls for him to be dropped from the starting 11.

The possession based brand of football is working well so far. 1 goal in 5 games from a centre half that most want out of the team
