I've made a few quid off duffy as anytime scorer now last few games. He is a decent price normally about 5/1. Worth a fiver each game at least

Watched some of the Celtic highlights recently and while Duffy has nabbed a couple of goals, there are moments when he looks very uncomfortable running back towards his own goal under a counter attack (which happens quite a bit when you are playing for Celtic, I suppose). Don’t want to cover old ground, but Kenny’s high line is really not a good fit for him. 

On a related not, here’s something from Jonathan Wilson in the Guardian today:

“the most common reason penalties have been given in the Premier League this season has been forwards having their legs clipped by retreating defenders finding themselves on the wrong side having been undone by a ball played behind the line.”


If we’re playing high, that lack of pace at the back could really end up costing us. Even Bayern play Alaba at CB to cover counters. 


You asked if I'd be anyone from history, fact or fiction, dead or alive:
I said "I'd be Tony Cascarino, circa 1995"

Duffy is a great defender if you play a low defensive line. He was very much suited to the way ireland played under mccarthy and O'Neil but when playing a high line and a passing game hes a fish out of water.

I feel the Egan is first choice central defender and it shouldn't take much for oshea (who seems to be getting better by the game) of Nathan Collins to take Duffys place.

Football cliche No: 463 but Duffy for me is the first name on the Ireland team sheet. He's adapted a lot better than I thought to Kenny's system. I don't wan to be too harsh on Egan but he seems to get caught out a lor of the times I've watched him for both club and country. He gets turned too easily and exposed  in a way that Duffy wouldn't. Duffy would be better at that in standing off a dangerous player who can turn you inside out. Egan needs to improve on that part of his game.

He just doesn't suit the style of football we are trying to play. Again under no pressure today he sent a 30 yard cross field pass 10 yards into the stand. Did something similar for Ireland during the first international break. That side of his game is so far off what is required that it's almost comical. Didn't cover himself in glory for the two goals either.

That said O'Shea is probably still a year or so away from taking his spot and in the short term we need him to get on the end of free kicks as we are not creating much else. Beyond that you'd expect Egan, O'Shea and Collins to be ahead of him within a couple of seasons.

Totally disagree with that analysis of Egan, if anything I see it as Duffy doesn't do Egan any favours. Duffy gets flat footed with the through ball and turns like a bus, he hasn't got the pace to recover when playing a high line.

When he has possession of the ball his passing is poor and it isn't natural for him to carry the ball forward. 

All in all Duffy is old school, there's not a better player with his heading ability but overall defending is good and not much better.

Honestly, you must have never seen Egan play when it's clearly one of his weaknesses. He allows himself to get drawn out and turned but I'm sure he'll improve on that as he gets older. 

Yes, Duffy doesn't have the pace to recover if he was caught out on a high line which is why he tries to mitigate that risk by not being pulled out of defence to the extant that Egan has done. Egan has that rashness.

I've seen Egan play many times actually and id agree he can be rash but he reads the game better than Duffy and is a good recovery defender.

Like I said, Duffy is good when the defence plays on the edge of the penalty area with no ambitions to get further forward than that which suited us when we played long ball under mon and mccarthy.

However under Kenny or Potter for that matter he was required to do more, whereas Egan can do more, Duffy just can't. I suspect that he should do well for Celtic as the opposition will be a low standard but in the premier league and under the new possession based tactics with ireland he's going to struggle.

it was an eyeopener how Rangers did not press Duffy when he had the ball as they knew he'd just punt it back to them

To be fair that is easily fixed. Pass it to your midfielders or full backs.
