Problem is that, for me, he's not been in form in the green shirt for quite a while.
You'll never fault his effort and if you are employing a press then he's ideal to lead that but his end product has been really lacking. I know he'e been playing well for Stoke but initial reaction when I heard he might be out was that it might present us with an opportunity to change things slightly.

Never good to see a player get injured but probably increases our chances of qualification.

If he was used as an impact sub then this would be a loss but working hard and endlessly running around like a headless chicken for 90 minutes doesn't cut it.

Correct!
 
If he is missing the opportunity to play wing backs surely should come in to consideration, I reckon he will go with Brady though.

Mick had already confirmed we wont be playing with wing backs
 
Well then he is a fool.

How so? He appears to be asking a question not forming an opinion.

Mcclean has 73 caps for ireland. 10 goals is a decent return but I'd probably only count 2 as important. (Austia and wales) 

3 assists is extremely poor, I'd count 1 as important vs Switzerland (it was deflected however)

10 goals
4 goals in friendlies (portugal, USA, Slovakia, Uruguay)
2 vs Gibraltar (in a 7-0 win)
2 vs Moldova (3-1 win)
1 vs Austria (1-0 winning goal)
1 x wales (1-0 winning goal and maybe his most important)

3 assists
1 in a friendly (USA)
1 vs Gibraltar (last minute brady goal in 2-0 win)
1 vs Switzerland (equaliser scored by mcgoldrick, I remember this assist was a deflection off the swiss player)

In contrast, Stevens has 14 caps and 2 assists, I dont think mcclean is a big miss for ireland. 

Lots of energy but really not irreplaceable.

How many assist assists? And how many mattered?

Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

I just hate modern football and this assists nonsense is part of it.

I tend to agree that some of the stuff that’s mentioned these days as stats are pure rubbish but surely assists is a strong barometer of how an attacking player performs. 

Edited - sorry, you probably are referring to assist assists!

It's part of the Americanised language and marketing that's rife right now . Almost as irritating as footballers saying ' obviously ' every few seconds when they're being interviewed . McClean will be a serious loss if not available but unlike some granny rule opportunists would play through a pain barrier for his country . Brady is not playing enough football at the moment to slot in though there are other alternatives such as young Doherty , little Maguire ( acknowledgements to M O'Neill for those two appellations ) and Callum Robinson .
