It`s a good complaint I suppose having such a strong squad but I dont envy Nutsy trying to pick his best eleven. I counted 26 of a squad tonight, (incl. the two on loan to Shels), and there`s any number of combinations you could make without weakening the team by very much.

Up front, North will lead the line with Mc Cabe in a free role off the shoulder in a 10. But across the middle, I wouldnt even know where to start in picking my midfield! Fahey and Cregg will feature in central midfield, or will they? What about Blanchard, who has good defensive qualities like Stephen Rice and will break up the opposition attacks. And where will the Brennans fit in or Stephen Mc Phail or any number of other midfielders?

We`re very strong in defence - for a change! Madden was as solid as ever and Hyland will push Murphy in nets. Webster had a couple of nervy moments in the 1st half but he grew into the game and his positional sense and decision-making were excellent. Kenna is the older head there and provides much needed leadership, even if he`s still prone to the odd clanger! I thought Luke Byrne was very good the other night, though he`d want to be, with Tim Clancy, David O`Connor and Robert Cornwell all breathing down his neck for the left-full position :)

Sure the league is over already by the sounds of it, you can pick whoever and you are still going to win. On a less sarcastic note rovers were always going to improve but there is still a lack of quality there. Big isnt always best. I wouldnt read a thing into friday

Cregg has to play. A total revelation and I think the lynchpin that will be at the heart of everything Rovers do.

Fenlon has signed well and is getting performances out of players the previous two duds couldn't. Fenlons home league record is p 6, w 6 with 9 for and 0 conceded. That sort of form that early in his reign is grounds for optimism

Valid enough point Joey. I did a quick search and couldn't find a SRFC thread whereas there are other threads for specific clubs. So I've re titled this as the Shamrock Rovers Thread for all stuff SRFC.

Clap, cue the "Shamrock Rovers Haters Thread next".
 
Anyhow, yeah good complaint for Nutsy, that's where he'll earn his corn trying to pick his strongest XI. 
 
Cregg has to be a mainstay in there, I was impressed with him when he joined us and he was outstanding on Friday. 
 
What we did learn Saint Tom is that Rovers showed a resilience and discipline in the 2nd half that was patently missing the last couple of years so a very decent start if you're a Rovers fan.
We'll never die, we'll never die, we'll keep the Green Flag flying high......Shamrock Rovers will never die, we'll keep the Green Flag Flying high. 17 Leagues and 24 Cups.....

Ah stop will you for god sake. YBIG isn't dedicated to any club so if you lot have it then every other lot are entitled to the same. Pages and Pages of threads everytime somebody in Tallegth takes a dump is no use to anyone. Now you have a Shamrock Rovers Thread, enjoy it to the fullest.

Twill be the busiest thread by far going by the non Hoops on here and their fascination with Irelands greatest Club. Anyways tis grand to see us as committed as we were V the crack heads from the camac . When these lads start to buzz off one another and put their shift in we could be real contenders . Hearing Longford are a good outfit so will test us this Sat in their gaff . 
Shamrock Rovers - lovin the buzz .

I posted that I changed it, however, crossed wires somewhat anyway as you replied to a post made before the title changed and I took it as you sticking up for the original title. Anyway, done and dusted. Enjoy your thread
