They keep that one quiet, don't they?!

Both Whelan and Hoolahan injured - what will Dunphy have to complain about now? I;d trade that in a heartbeat to have Coleman and McCarthy back.

Man, I am really looking to this one.

Seeing as how interest in the Irish national team is spiking again, I predict a dour 0-0 draw.. Robbie Brady looked good at left back against Liverpool (although it was as a wing-back in a back 5), wonder if he could dislodge the indomitable Stephen Ward for Ireland. Brady / O' Shea / Wilson / Coleman has a promising look to it.

I heard Brady played well, didn't see it, but also didn't realise he was slotted in at left back. Interesting.
I definitely can't see MON dropping Ward though if he held his own against the World Champions. More likely I could see Brady coming in on the left, interchangeable with McClean, and McGeady being deployed again in the middle, not that I'd favour it.

I'd say Hoolihan will start and McGeady will be on the wing again but that's probably the team he'll put out. Keane might actually do alright against the Scots because they aren't great at the back but I'd stll rather see Long up front. Gibson hasn't played a whole lot for us this season and it's hard to see him getting a run until Barry gets the first of his usual 4 bans a season and or Besic gets an injury, Myler maybe i the middle with McCarthy ? He did well at full back against Germany. Good engine hard grafter and Hull do play good football.

Hoolahan is injured. Hendrick and Quinn would be ahead of Meyler in the central midfield pecking order. As much as I like Meyler, why would be get a start ahead of Gibson when he's even less of a chance of starting at club level these days? I don't think Gibson will be omitted cos he's not starting for Everton in any case.

I think if that lineup played Brady and McClean would switch wings, Brady seems more skilful and better able to get the ball inside so he could cross with his good foot.
