Would Obafemi make the squad as a third striker? Probably competing with Dizdy, Long, Hogan (?), Robinson, McClean, Brady, and Connolly for the forward spots. Maybe Idah too.

Don't forget the slowpoke from Tottenham.

Until he gets senior appearances on a somewhat regular basis I feel like he won’t be part of the 23 man squad for key qualifiers. Or sprinting lessons from Usain Bolt...

Obafemi in the squad for me.
How many strikers do we normally pick, 4 or 5?
We'd have Long, McG, Connolly as the first three anyway.
After that would be Obafemi in with McClean (assuming he's a banker pick)

Hogan I'm far from convinced about and has yet to perform for Ireland.
Robinson is getting as many minutes as Idah but a league lower.
Brady is not playing at all.

Idah is a key U21 player and they have big games coming up, so maybe he'll be left there for now assuming he keeps only getting a few minutes here and there for Norwich but you'd think it's a toss up between himself and Obafemi for spot 5 if there is one.

i'd have obafemi in the squad along with McGoldrick, Connolly, Long. Maybe room for Robinson or Maguire but i think obafemi should be in

Robinson is a good player but hasn't really delivered for Ireland, he may prosper under Kenny though, especially if playing a front 3.

Maguire should be nowhere near our squad.

i think mcguire and hogan are not good enough and never will be. in the short term i'd pick Mcg, Long, Connolly, Oba, Robinson.

After the play offs i would start blooding more. 

Obafemi ......big man togged out, reminds me of Nudie Hughes in corner forwardBig smile

I forgot Maguire existed. Shouldn't be in the squad with that haircut anyway.

Time for more trivia. ' Obafemi ' means ' the King loves me . ' Afolabi', as in Jonathan Afolabi, means ' born in wealth and high status .' Both can be first or last names. Really hitting the jackpot is Afolabi Obafemi, elder brother of Michael , who plays for Barking and was formerly with Leyton Orient.

With Obafemi shortlisted (80 strong shortlist) for the golden boy award, along with the likes of Haaland and Sancho. It would seem that he is rated higher than our other potential young forwards.

I know Parrott is highly rated, as is idah and connolly but Obafemi more so, would be good to see him realise that potential next season.

Troy looked the outstanding striking prospect at u-21. He’s younger than all the rest and came off the bench to win the game in Sweden. I still say he’s the one that’ll have the most fruitful career.

Obafemi only started in Iceland I think when the game was a freak show due to wind so I couldn’t judge him but Kenny didn’t pick him when all were available.

Obafemi started PL games this season. Hogan and Parrott didn't do that.
