for first time in a number of years one of our under age teams are to play England. Colin O Brian's u17 are playing a 4 team tournament. On 8th NOVEMBER they play England at 7pm in Tallaght. They also play Germany and Czech republic. But I think the England really stands out. Bring it on.

Do you have the dates and kickoff times for the 6 games?

I have been looking for them for quite a while.

lost 3 1 to England. England down to 10 men for about 50 minutes. Very small crowd. Not bad game  Corcoran made a terrific save in the second d half.but  was at fault for the first goal and himself and a defender got into a right mess for the second. Everitt, Holt and Keogh played well I thought. Hope a few more fans turn out for the next two games

I thought it was a really good game but England were better.  We could have nicked a draw and had chances at 2-1 down.  Ebosele looked really good at times as well.  

I also thought the crowd was very disappointing but I did speak with a few people who didn't know the games were on.   

The English guy sent off (Cirken) was born in Dublin and shares a house with Troy Parrott.

Wasn't there last night but hope to be there for the Czech game on Sunday. FAI do hardly anything to promote these games. I can't recall seeing anything on their Facebook page yesterday about it.

I was at the game last night. In truth, England deserved the win. They were organised in defence, and broke with pace in possession, and looked far more likely to score than Ireland. While the boys in green did play good football, passing across the park, moving into space, there was precious little created for the isolated striker Conor Carty in the first half.
In the second half, Sobowale was moved up front to play alongside Carty, but England parked the bus and restricted the space for Ireland players. They didn't seem to have a Plan B. Plan A was to keep possession in defence, try to move up the park, push the full back (esp the left full) into the England half, but ran out of ideas after reaching the half way line, facing a blanket England defence.

I was impressed with Holt and Everitt on the right in the first half. Ebosele impressed on the left in the second half. I was disappointed that only two substitutions were made, the second with only a minute remaining. The front players were clearly exhausted and needed to be replaced. Ebosele was shown a yellow card right before the end of the game after a mistimed tackle when he really should have been withdrawn beforehand.

Lest anyone forget,

Sunday Nov 11th, England v Germany, UCD Bowl, ko 19:00

Opposing teams do battle as their nations' young men compete where so many other young men competed before.
#SilentSideline but will the warmongers on the touchline raise their heads above the parapet to break the silence.

Tickets: The price our young men have to pay is still being counted.
If this weather keeps up it'll be Passion Dale in The UCD Bowl (TUB).

Was at the  game in Tallaght earlier. Czechs won 3-2.    
 
Poor enough first half, didnt get going at all maybe a little nervous. Much improved 2nd half after a few ht subs. Our little left winger looked to Have lightening pace and got in behind them a few times. Also the number 9 who came on was a big improvement on hold up play an! few nice flicks. 2 goals in 5 mins put us in front, the second from a corner looked  fortunate but happy days. 

Czechs got a pen for pretty bad incident. Keeper came out to punch away a cross, but hit their forward/our centre half. Strange one, but the centre half was in a bad way, possibly knocked out but tHat was just my thinking. Stretchered off and hopefully hes ok. 

Late Czech winner in the 10min injury time, and they probably just shaded it. But always hard to be hit with a late sucker punch. 

Good game.

Thanks for the perspectives tets and cardwizzard. Sounds like some bright points and hopefully some learning experiences

Would I be right in saying that the squad used for this tournament isn't the strongest available to management?

Was there not five / six players for last years tournament who are eligible for the 2019 competition? 

I assume that O'Brien wanted to cast an eye over players who haven't yet been given the chance to impress.

Our 16's kick off the charity shield in the next few weeks too, there could well be a handful of players from that squad who are included for the 17s EUROs.

What do people think of the idea of allowing the likes of Troy Parrott to play in the tournament even though his development is a good bit beyond this age group?

Personally I'd like to see him play and for us to give this tournament a real go considering we are hosting it.

You could argue that this could limit other players development, but Parrott in particular would greatly improve this team and could probably be the difference between doing well or not.

There's an under 18 tournament in Spain this week as well with Ireland, England, Belgium and the Netherlands, but I haven't seen the squad announcement for it yet.
The U18 squad tends to be made up of home based players, so maybe the players missing from the u17 squad are with them?

I reckon Parrott will play in the Euros especially if the 19s dont qualify.

Even if the 19s also qualify he'll play in both, 17s tournament is played in May and the 19s is played in July.
