Harry Arter’s Praise For ‘World Class’ Eriksen Proves What A Threat He Really Is

Republic of Ireland Press Conference, FAI National Training Centre, Dublin 6/6/2017 Harry Arter

Denmark’s Christiam Eriksen is an exceptional player, but Ireland should be focusing on themselves primarily ahead of Saturday’s huge World Cup qualification play-off first leg.  That is according to the man who may well be tasked with keeping tabs on the Spurs maestro this weekend, Harry Arter. Eriksen is a key component to the wonderful run of form that Tottenham …

How Ireland Should Now Line Up Against Wales After Moldova Win

2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifier, Aviva Stadium, Dublin 6/10/2017 Republic of Ireland vs Moldova Ireland team

Ireland did the necessary against Moldova on Friday night to set up a winner-takes-all clash with Wales on Monday. Two first half goals from Daryl Murphy were enough to seal the win, though the performance at times wasn’t particularly strong and some players should be pretty nervous about their role in the starting lineup. Still, Ireland got the win they …

Ireland’s injury problems could be set to mount ahead of Tuesday night’s must-win World Cup qualifier against Serbia. The 1-1 draw in Tbilisi on Saturday has put a serious dent in Martin O’Neill’s hopes of progressing from the group automatically, but securing all three points at the Aviva will put them back in the driving seat going into the final …

With Ireland’s crunch tie with Georgia fast approaching, we look at four possible lineups Martin O’Neill could deploy in Tbilisi. O’Neill seems to favour certain personnel but not a particular system. He has alternated between 4-4-2, 4-3-3, 4-2-3-1, a midfield diamond and, more recently, a 4-5-1 formation. Ireland beat Georgia 1-0 last October with a 4-3-3 formation deployed, Seamus Coleman …

The Pros And Cons To The Continued Selection Of Glenn Whelan

2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifier, Stadionul Zimbru, Chisinau, Moldova 9/10/2016 Moldova vs Republic of Ireland Ireland's Glenn Whelan

Ireland’s 1-1 draw with Austria on Sunday brought with it many criticisms of Martin O’Neill’s team selection. One of the individuals in question yet again was Glenn Whelan. Whelan did not necessarily have a bad game on Sunday and did produce some good defensive play and anchored the midfield. However, he was anonymous at times and and offered Ireland very …
