if, and when, Jack  Byrne gets his chance I'd bet he will make more of an impression that Seani Maguire( who had 1 great season at Cork). I don't even remember your man hogan playing for Ireland, which probably tells its own story.
The bigger question is whether Kenny will have the stones to start Byrne in a game, as its kennys bravery that is now more in question than Byrnes ability. 
Far easier for him to persist with the neutral, pointless midfield of hourihane, mccarthy, hendrick, brady etc..

Will Jack Byrne turn into the new Scott Hogan or Seanie Maguire? When they didn't get picked or play they were the answer to all the teams ills, then when they did play, they were discarded as not good enough.

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.

Why do you seem to take everything on here so personally? It's a diversion for people with an above healthy interest in a football team. I hate the overuse of the word in the modern world, but it genuinely seems you are offended if someone has a pop at any player or manager, past or present. All I will advise is to give Twitter a miss.LOL
It was rhetorical for f**k sake. No one needs to apologise for anything. You always take things literally when it suits you.

I don't know or care what this means. But if you say so, pM, it must be very profound. Adios.

Stealing a living these days the lads!
Giles is 100% right. He laments the absence of a playmaker capable of the final pass - and a striker wily enough to read it. He says our possession game lacks penetration. Too many tiny passes getting us nowhere. That's exactly what happened against Wales. High percentage tip-tap, low percentage strike rate. One shot on target all night. Your post misrepresents Giles' comments - he certainly does not want  a return to the hoof - quite the opposite - he's a strong Kenny advocate. What he says is just common sense - despite his hideous crime of being old. 

I do think he probably still meant use the midfield too, he wants the midfielders to turn on the ball and get it forward. But he didn't make that  clear. He definitely doesn't agree with keeping possession for possession sake. 

The answer is somewhere in the middle

He made the right call. Do you agree with keeping possession for possession sake? Where does that take it to? You should apologise for accusing him of stealing a living. 

Hi John. The name is TR. Listen, I wrote that you and Eamon are stealing a living on YBIG. I know you don't read here as you are too busy having a sing song with your old pal John Delaney at the bar, but just want to say, I apologise for my words.

Anyway, I do agree with keeping possession as a way of trying to control the game. You obviously need to take risks as well and get balls forward but the thing is we are trying that. I dont get this that we are just going side to side commentary. We just haven't been good enough in our execution,especially the final ball and decision making when the chance is just opening have been disappointing.  But fact we are getting into these positions is encouraging and I do feel with a full team available the goals and wins will start to come.
Just forget it. This place is vanishing up its own arse.

I actually like The Stand when Dunphy has political commentators on it. Or when he has Giles and Brady on reminiscing about the old days. But you're right, they sadly don't know what they're talking about in reagrds to modern football

Giles wanted a four man midfield of mcclean after Hendrick and Brady. Think it was that anyway. 

But would agree the two lads don't watch enough football regularly now to analyse games pre match. Maybe they can analyse what's happening during a game when watching it but certainly they don't know enough about who is in form etc.
