Should be called up for Tuesday and if not then needs game time in the States. Needs to be integrated into the squad asap in case anything was to happen to Christie.

I have to say, one of my biggest issues with Martin O’Neill is that he’s never given Matt a chance.

This guy is 26, in the prime of his career and playing very well for arguably the best team in the championship. He’s a far better player than Christie at club level.

He could very possibly be playing Premier League football next season, I’m not certain that Christie will ever make that jump.

Think he has had him in the squad at time. He does appear to be doing very well so it's a bit strange he has not had more of a look in, especially at times we've even had to use meylor as a makeshift full back. MoN obviously not been so impressed so far

Forgot to mention that he can play left or right back. Needs a serious look in friendlies after we qualify for the World Cup, Coleman may never come back the same player, and Christie is not the long term solution.

I’d struggle to see how Doherty hasn’t made any impact in training. Most of the squad are lower premier league or higher championship players, he’s bettering these types of players week in and week out at club level.

Yeah it is mad that Doherty has not got more of a look in, of all of our fringe players I think he is the one who can feel the most hard done by. In fairness to Christie he made a good first impression when he joined up with the squad, once he was in there was never a need to replace him so Doherty has never really had a chance. With Colemans injury I thought he would definitely get a look in but it hasn't happened for whatever reason. If Wolves get promoted you'd have to imagine he will be in for the next campaign especially considering he can play either of the full back roles.

I’d certainly hope he’d be in the squad, we’re not at the level to be saying no to any players playing in the Premier League (if he gets there).

He's been Wolves player of the season before aswel. He's a better player than Christie imo but sure that's why MON gets paid a lot of money to decide these things. Thing is we could lose him to Holland if we don't cap him quick his mother is Dutch.

I’ve nothing against Christie, and actually think he’s done well since coming in. But Doherty is actually a good footballer. Christie is a good athlete with absolutely no end product.

Baffling stuff!

Surely himself and Greg Cunningham deserve a chance. Mon is calling up 2 fullbacks in his extended 90 man squad

I remember he retweeted a fan complaining about Brian Lenihan getting called up ahead of him. Maybe MON took issue with that.

Have heard from a mate that has interviewed him several times that he has serious attitude issues. But so does our assistant manager. Call him up MON.

Our assistant manager was also a world class player, makes it that bit easier to tolerate a difficult personality

He was asked several years ago while on loan at Hibs if he fancied playing for them next season after losing in the cup 5-1 to Hearts, he replied "No chance". Its on Youtube somewhere. He got a load of abuse from Hib's fans as it wasn't a very appropriate response after losing to your biggest rivals.

I wouldn't hold it against him though, really rate him and think he'll go on to be a solid PL performer.

Hasn't he been playing on the right of a four in a 3-4-3 for Wolves lately ? They spent heavily for this season & he survived &is in their side in a key position, he won their penalty on Saturday also. How he is not in our squads is becoming a real mystery definitely if it's just down to on the park matters.

The same could said about Enda Stevens. My mate is a ST holder at Pompey and said he left a far better player than when he arrived and could be decent in the Championship... which he is now. I don't see the harm in including him within the 48 man squad. 
Seamus Coleman is Sligo ONLY
