He’s been in dreadful form but football didn’t start this year a 100% warrants a place in the squad coming from someone who is adamant he shouldn’t start in Belgrade.

But is there really any chance he could play? Maybe only the Qatar game... right?

Sounds like he'll start in Serbia going by Kenny's presser today 

Really? He did big him up, but when asked the question on his involvement, Kenny's first response was that (paraphrasing) "nobody in the squad can be considered a guaranteed starter..." 

I wouldn't say he is nailed on by any stretch.

Haven't seen it and only caught the quotes. He couldn't really say anyone is guaranteed a start. Exact quote below. I don't think he'd have started had Egan been fit but think he might now. Maybe he'll go for Clark and O'Shea.

"It's fair to say that nobody is an automatic starter, no one in the squad is an automatic starter. I have no problem leaving anyone out," he said.

"What I will say that Shane Duffy had had a tough year, he knows he's had a tough year at Celtic, he's been a great player, has never let Ireland down, he has played when he was injured, he played three games in six days, left everything on the line for the team."

If Egan was fit, I assume Duffy's exclusion would be for footballing reasons rather form. I don't see how that changes with Egan not available. O'Shea and Clark still seem like the better footballing and more mobile option. 

Unless Kenny has changed tac completely, and is not focusing on his defence holding a higher line in the Serbia match. Who knows, genuinely.

Totally agree with this but If Kenny plays Duffy in light of the current form and Duffy makes a mistake leading to a goal... and dare I say it costs the game. The backlash would not only be severe but maybe even justified.

Based on form alone, if I were Stephen Kenny, I wouldn't start Shane Duffy in Belgrade. I say this as a supporter of Duffy's, as well as Celtic. I very much wanted to see him succeed there, but he doesn't deserve the abuse he's been getting. His father dying plus the pandemic, what a tough course of a year. Duffy has been a dedicated, reliable player for Ireland. Sometimes the game can have cruel twists.

The bigger actual choices he must make, however, include whether to stick with Shane Duffy, whose move to Celtic was billed as a season-long ride on an open-topped bus but has turned out to be the career equivalent of being hit by one. The tone of Kenny’s support for the 29-year-old this past week certainly suggests to the Derryman being retained.

Great words
A shocker of a season for Shane but hopefully he can pull through

As we’ve seen the last few years with the likes of hendrick, whelan and Hourihane. Form at club and international level isn’t an inhibitor to accumulating Ireland caps. Duffy has been better than those three, but I think it could be a mistake starting him tonight.

When he was playing for Celtic he looked terribly unfit, I think he'll start tonight and it'll prove costly.

I think that's a bit harsh. I would say that Duffy looks like he has the weight of the World on his shoulders at the moment. He's had a family.crises, move to another city and expectation thrust upon him.

Hes not a robot, this has affected him as it would any person in the world.

I just fear that if he does play today and he makes a mistake a difficult position will be made more difficult.

It isn't harsh to say he has been unfit as he has been.
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.

No Dugs, I wouldn't select him for tonight. Id wait till he finds his club form again before selecting him for the ireland 11.

I always wish the move to WHU that was touted had come off for him.

Duffy last played on 14 February. Robinson last played on 02 February. Strangely, nobody seems to have any problem with Robinson being selected to do his impersonation of an Intl caliber footballer tonight even though he's badly lacking minutes.
You know Spider, you're a f**kin' mumbling stuttering little prick. You know that?
