    I heard a fella on the radio discussing Derby sacking him. There is no way they can sack him without sacking the others. One of them is worth a few quid so he won't be getting sacked (unless his legs are in a mess too).

    The papers were on the case that the negotiations were going on so they put it out late last night to make the stories look like old news. You can be sure theres non disclosure agreements signed. Fucker should be in prison,instead he's walking away with a hefty whack after fleecing the kip for years. Cant be many countries where corporate corruption goes as unpunished as it does here.

    To think he had to score 2 goals today to get a call up when he clearly should have been in the squad in the first place.

    Don't follow international footie much and don't know to much about the lad but why should he have been clearly in the squad. He hasn't been a regular starter and is hardly banging in the goals.

    Harvey Neville, son of former Manchester United player Phil Neville, is among the new faces named in the Republic of Ireland squad to play Denmark in a friendly at The Showgrounds on Friday.

    After last season's excellent campaign, which concluded with a semi-final appearance in the UEFA Under-19 European Championships, Tom Mohan’s side will use a Danish double-header in preparation for the upcoming qualifying round games against Switzerland, Austria and Gibraltar.

    Borussia Monchengladbach’s Conor Noß is called into an Ireland squad for the first time.

    The German-born attacker has been part of recent first-team squads with the Bundesliga side in domestic and European games.

    Speaking to FAI TV about Noß, Mohan said he is looking forward to seeing the 18-year-old play in Sligo.

    "Conor plays at number 10. He was in our last training camp. He impressed a lot and is technically a very good player. He’s doing very well in Germany and we’re excited by him."

    Neville qualifies for Ireland through his mother Julie's side and was previously with Valencia before signing for United last summer.

    Ireland manager Mohan is hoping the crowds in the north-west come out and support the team as preparations to qualify for next year’s Finals in Northern Ireland move up another level.

    "There’ll be an honest approach from the players. It’s an opportunity for the players to impress. We’re looking forward to a good crowd in Sligo for the games."

    The opening match takes place in The Showgrounds on Friday, 11 October at 7pm, followed by the second game on Monday, 14 October at 1pm.

    Republic of Ireland Under-19 squad:

    Goalkeepers: Sean Bohan (Bohemians), Jimmy Corcoran (Preston North End), Bobby Jones (Wigan Athletic)

    Defenders: Ronan Boyce (Derry City), Ben Greenwood (AFC Bournemouth), Oisin McEntee (Newcastle United), Mark McGuinness (Arsenal), Mazeed Ogungbo (Arsenal), Andrew Omobamidele (Norwich City), Lewis Richards (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Timi Sobowale (Manchester City)

    Midfielders: Jamie Bowden (Tottenham Hotspur), Barry Coffey (Celtic), Dawson Devoy (Bohemians), Donal Higgins (Galway United), Conor Grant (Sheffield Wednesday), Harvey Neville (Manchester United), Armstrong Oko-Flex (Celtic), Tyreik Wright (Aston Villa)

    Forwards: Tom Cannon (Everton), Ryan Cassidy (Watford), Festy Ebosele (Derby County), Alex Gilbert (West Bromwich Albion), Conor Noß (Borussia Monchengladbach), George Nunn (Chelsea), Thomas Oluwa (Shamrock Rovers), Ross Tierney (Bohemians)

    No idea tbh, fairly sceptical about it anyway. If he turns out to be good, surely he'd opt for England? Anyhow, there seems to be a healthy amount of talent in our underage squads atm. It can be hard to know how some will develop, but the future sure looks bright.

    Not sure how much talent is there. Kelleher and Parrott are still a long way away from first team football, although I think both will be good players for Ireland. Not that many other name that are near Premier League squads though at underage level.

    With how accessible information is nowadays, an Ireland qualified player at a continental club generates a lot of excitement, however rarely turns into anything major.

    Hopefully the work Kenny is doing at Under 21s will give him an idea of the key players he needs to be bring through when he gets the top job. If Mick gets us to the Euros and then Kenny hits the ground running with some new players, perhaps John Delaney's last major decision in the FAI will turn out to be a good one.

    God that was an awful first half, hard to watch. Worth taking a gamble on Connolly now, maybe jack byrne too. Shocking stuff so time to get brave and do something a bit different. Connolly would be flying on confidence too, so I'd get him on, probably Byrne as well.

    Would bring on Connolly and switch full backs around. Hook Hourihane, he has been terrible and probably throw O'Dowda or Judge into the mix.
    When Glen Whelan has been your best midfielder you know you are in trouble.
    We need to force corners because they struggle to defend them and we have players to exploit them.

    Watching Ireland play Georgia is like a bad dose of constipation. Frustrating!
