This gave me a laugh. Not saying you're wrong by the way, as I probably would have thought the same. But it's so refreshing to see 4 players breaking free in injury time and the team to get another goal, instead of sitting on the edge of the box trying to keep the other team out.

Mick is dead right about leaving the players where they are. Fantastic opportunity for them to qualify for the first time, and realistically, throwing them in to do-or-die games in which qualification for what is effectively a home tournament for us might hinder their development.

The best part about watching this team, aside from the technical ability, is the team spirit that seems to be within the squad. They all seem to love playing for the jersey.

Sweden attacked our goal straight after we had taken the lead and  before I posted that. There was 5 mins of injury time.
Its easy to watch a clip on twitter of Parrott scoring a breakaway goal and think that we were cruising.
But Sweden threatened a few times in injury time. Hence the post “now hang on for the win”.
Matt Cooper: What do you think is different this time?
John Delaney: Well we can understand our manager which is great. I tell you what, his English was always great when we were discussing the wages!

No free parking

I presume it was a typo on the fixture list that came out with the season tickets that the game v Italy is on in the aviva

Sky sports website says its in aviva, for what its worth

So Mick is talking about leaving the lads in the U21's instead of calling them up.
Mick is basically in the job until March or June.
It would be great for the U21's to do well but I don't expect them to stay there for another 2 years until the tournament.
Kenny would probably promote them to the senior team anyway.

9 group winners + the best runner up qualify automatically. Other 8 runners up go into playoffs.

right so im taking for granted the italians will be decent, wonder how good are the icelandic side. 3 of us fighting for those two spots probably. you would have to fancy us for a top two finish.

No free parking

Went to the Armenia game and it cost 2 euro to park in the Square and five euro for a ticket. 

Should easily get 7,000 for Italy game.

I assume the Spurs fans of whom Deane speaks are mostly talking about the upcoming league cup game, rather than PL games. Plus Son is only back from injury and it might have been before that they were calling for him to play.

I can see Mick's point. Why break up a winning u21 team just for the hell of it? It might be better to leave those guys where they are and hope the senior team qualifies anyway. If we do qualify for the Euros, a couple of the young lads will definitely make the senior squad next summer.

Fair enough.

But that shouldn't disguise the fact that had Poch been able to sign a decent striker who was prepared to be back-up to Kane for a bit, Troy would have been further down the ladder, indeed probably out on loan by now.

Hence why I said "breaking free". I wasn't criticising your post.

This display against a decent Sweden u21 side was as good a performance as I’ve seen from any Irish team in a long time. Hopefully the lads can continue to progress at club level and crucially get some more 1st team opportunities.

Being a manager involves picking a team based on who you are playing, the tactics you want to employ etc. It isn't like playing fantasy football where you just pick a load of individuals otherwise every poster on here would be an "expert" !

ClapClap A lot of people on here don’t seem to understand this 

Funnily enough, I don’t think a lot of managers understand that either. 

Enough Kenny love on this thread, but he is constantly talking about the balance and mix of the team and squad. It’s refreshing.
You asked if I'd be anyone from history, fact or fiction, dead or alive:
I said "I'd be Tony Cascarino, circa 1995"
