Well that’s a focking waste of time for the scout ffs. 

Hopefully AMc makes it a worthwhile mission

McGeady made the goal and played well...never thought he would make a squad again but it’s not right to ignore him in the form he’s in and the experience he brings plus he’s finally learned to cross a ball ⚽️

I think you should do a quick check on whether a player is injured before your next "Irish player dropped" post.

He played in midfield today, I know in the reverse fixture he played at right-back. I didn't know he could play in midfield, did he start off there?

Hes been playing there quite a bit as a very mobile holding midfielder, I believe he's won a few MOTM for his performances there.

That's the role he played today. Tranmere had Khan at right-back too, who I had previously seen as a winger for a couple of different clubs.

Apparently done well there this year. When he was coming through at United he played across the back and in midfield.

I think he’ll be a player for us. He has a lot of ability

He played midfield for us at the Euro Under 19s I think. Wouldn't be surprised if he ends up there, there's a player in there but I'm not sure he's a good enough right back.

I remember reading on a Manchester United forum a couple of years ago that he was a cracking centre half but just never got the growth spurt he needed to play there as a senior.

Bradford v Tranmere tonight.

Anthony O'Connor, Paudie O'Connor and Lee O'Connor all start. Surely the first time 3 Irish-born players with the same surname have started a game at that level or higher.

Great question - Daryl Murphy, Paul Murphy, and Brian Murphy all started in Ipswich's 1-0 win against S****horpe in a Championship game in March 2010

This was only three weeks after the same players had started in the reverse fixture in February 2010

Played CB today as part of a back three, and Tranmere are in the play offs.

in general this season seems to have been very positive for Lee. Has played a lot of games. 
He obviously has footballing ability, composure and reads the game well so to me the most important thing this year was that he has been exposed to the physicality of lower league football and performed well week in week out. I think playing in a back 3 or else holding midfielder will ultimately be where he makes his mark but I think that will be in the championship and not with Celtic.
