Made a very generous donation yesterday to the fundraiser i'm running to aid the Frontline Services in Cork.

only watched a few mins today and he seemed to be in a deeper midfield 2 alongside Pearson from what I saw.

Preston working their way into the championship playoffs and Browne seems to be playing a big part.

Any Preston fans on here know which position he's be playing of late? I know he's been moved around a lot over his years at preston.

Yeah, very disappointed with Hourihane last night. Needs to be much stronger on the ball, dispossessed too easily. Also came deep for the ball a lot in the first half and because the Danes werent pressing (except for their forwards which shows how disorganised Denmark were) he had plenty of time to turn when he got the ball. Alas he never did and simply played a pointless safe ball back to whence it came   In fact I dont think one of our midfielders turned on the ball in the first half. 

Hourihane seemed to react very petulantly to being subbed. Walked head down around the pitch and didnt acknowledge the fans applauding him as far as I could tell. Poor enough. Obviously he was disappointed but you need to hide that disappointment for 20 mins in the circumstances.

Its a pity if Hourihane doesnt up his game as his delivery is a huge asset. Hendrick and Browne both had good second halves after anonymous first halves. Thats ok from Browne as he is still finding his feet but Jeff needs to do better for 90 mins.  Whelan was good throughout. In fact probably Whelans best ever qualifying campaign at 35?

As for McClean, as limited as always on the ball and again not sure he beat the first man with a single cross. His workrate back, particularly near the end, was absolutely heroic, but Id swap that any day for a properly functioning wide man. In fact his efforts perfectly summed up in the yellow card incident. A Dane was slow to react to a pass and McClean bust a gut to get there before him - so far so good. James then, having gotten there, knocked the ball about 8 yards in front of himself with a hilariously awful first touch. To make up for this he tried nonetheless to win the ball from the Dane he had virtually passed the ball too and in the process gave away a free and picked up a card.

Lastly viz Browne, worth noting that at 24 he has 200 plus senior appearances at a high level to his name and 30 odd goals. Thats going to stand him in good stead over the next 10 years hopefully.

I’d agree with this. 

I felt our midfield was our weak link last night, simply because it didn’t have the capability to be creative enough as it was. And this required McGoldrick to drop very deep, which left the box empty. While Hendrick was alright, he isn’t a natural “Number 10”, while I don’t believe Browne or McClean have the skills in their locker to create a lot from the wings.

The system kept us in the game, however, when it came to 70 minutes we could have gone a different way by replacing Hendrick with Maguire up top, and Robinson for Browne. Again, this may not have made the crucial difference, but it would have provided for a skilled wide player and a striker to partner McGoldrick.

Agreed but we need Molomphy to step up. Not sure what the story is with Mccarthy.

Personally, I don’t feel McCarthy would have offered much more than Whelan, on the basis of Whelan’s performance last night.

In truth it was on the wings and up top that we needed changes. Egan’s injury really didn’t help.

While I agree with what you are saying, after the game in Geneva I thought the game against the swiss passed him by somewhat, last night I think for the first time he felt more assured playing international football. Should start our remaining games under Mick McCarthy until someone arrives on the scene that can add a bit more quality.

Why tf did he play so far over the wing last night? thought he had a decen game in fairness but would have preferred him in Hendrick's slot and maybe a conventional winger on the right
I don't agree with THAT, in the workplace!
