    Wolves Internationals

    This stuff always seems to end up in the General thread where it doesn't belong...so away we go.

    Unsurprisingly Doc is back in the Ireland squad now he is better. Still don't think he'll play though. Their regular LB is banned for one game but I would advise them not to go down that road.

    Was hoping he wouldn't get called up but like you say, won't play.

    Rui, Neves and Mout in the Portugal squad.

    Jota not selected, I presume because they have found someone else to sit on the bench for 90 minutes...and he is injured.

    Makes me think Diogo won’t be involved at all Sunday then

    At least him and Raul get a break now.

    No real shock as Saiss pulls out of the Morocco squad due to the hamstring injury picked up yesterday

    He went away, but isn't on the bench, so probably has a knock

    Wolves have ambition and wit... why is it such a crime?

    Right back in a five then I guess. The correct way to use him, as we know well.
    I'm looking California

    I'm feeling Minnesota

    Your guess is as good as mine, that could be any of about four positions.

    McClean has played LB all season for Stoke so he is another option there.

    Aye true, that was just from listening to a reporter this morning who is out there with them and is usually on the money*.

    *Probably mean now have cursed it and Mick goes for something completely batshit.

    Seems weird. Doc hasn't played in a back four (bar 70 odd mins at Sheff Utd where we were shit, he was shit and we lost) for nearly two and a half years, let alone playing on the left (where he was never any good to start with, and declined to such a point where we had to drop him despite having no other serious options). I can't stand McClean on a number of levels but if that's where he now plays at club level then he'd be a more obvious pick.

    I hope he does well but it smacks of someone who's never ever watched him play at LB.

    Penalty shout against him...not given (rightly).

    Unsurprisingly early signs are that this is not making the best use of him. He hasn't got over the halfway line yet.

    Doherty has been the best Irish International domestically for the last 2 years, so I guess there's pressure from the Irish press to play him. With 4 @ the back and the captain at right back I wouldn't bother though. He's now picked him to play right wing and left back when we know he's not up to much in either position

    It's also not helping that he has a player with zero footballing intelligence in front of him. He's blocking up all the space that he might potentially be able to move into.

    Couple of times he's been done by a quick bit of interplay down his side but Georgia haven't taken advantage. It's basically 2016 Doc, but two stone lighter and he actually tries.

    Nice little run there, beat a couple of men and got to the byline...but no left foot as we well know (bar that crazy goal vs Fulham).

    I'm not even an Irishman and McClean makes me rage with how absolutely shit he is. Parks level stuff.

    The opposing RB just schooled Doc, one simple dummy opened up a ton of space, again nothing made of it.

    I just don't get the mindset, he isn't a full back now, no more than Coady is a central midfielder. Don't pick him there, they must have one other left back.

    Sick to the back teeth for last 12 months telling people this. There is pressure from press and public but they clearly never seen him actually play there, all they is how he is performing for us at RWB and see that he won player of the year when at left back, put 2 & 2 together.

    Saying that Mick should have known better.

    As for this game, pure shite.

    This was an absolute travesty

    I'm not having a go at him by any measure, this is the absolute limit of my expectations in that position so far. Don't make any ridiculous errors, try properly, don't get caught up the pitch and have no chance of getting back. It's all you'll ever get. When Ireland get the ball at the back here, he's about 50 yards deeper than he is for Wolves and on the wrong side, it's nonsense.

    Isn’t Enda Stevens normally the starting LB? Not sure where he was.
