Calm down, dear! I thought he was poor, you didn’t. You think our squad is infallible, I don’t. Don’t take everything so seriously, for your own good, pet!

His passing wasn’t fine though, and you saying so doesn’t change that. I really wish every Irish player was as good as you make them out to be, unfortunately they are not. It isn’t that his passing last night was atrocious, but it always made the player receiving the ballto take an extra touch or put them under pressure. It regularly lead to us coughing up possession soon afterwards. It slowed us down way too much when we did keep it. This is in a friendly where there was next to no pressure on him with the ball. He is extremely limited compared to our other options, and lord knows they are limited enough themselves!

We will have to agree to disagree, but I have thought for a while, based on what I have seen for club and country, that he is somewhat short of what is needed.

Well that's plainly nonsense. He's obviously not brilliantly technically gifted, but his passing, control etc last night were absolutely fine. Just because you have a certain idea in your head about a player doesn't mean you can simply apply it to their every performance, even when it doesn't tie to the reality of how they actually played.

Touch & passing very poor..ridiculous. 

Done well & best game for us, though thats not saying much. An option.

I think he did pretty well actually - especially in that deep role. Given his physical attributes, I think Mick will see him as being suited to the challenges of Switzerland and Georgia where there may be a battle in the middle of the park.

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

Needed to make some type of inpact last night,  was delighted he got a goal mind you he won't get an easier finish. Covered a lot of ground and put in a few good tactless. It's been a reasonable week for him. 
time is the stuff that life is made of, don't waste it.

Was the clubs player of the year last season, while he didn't play in two  league games this season AFAIK.  Alex Neil has used him in different positions this season to accommodate other players in the team. 

I understand that he was carrying a slight injury for the start of the season but has now regained full fitness. 

As mentioned he was Preston's player of the season, I fully expect he'll start going forward 
He will have to track back too.
