He suits wing back not full back but not every team will play that. Excellent wing back but only half decent full back which probably isn't good enough at a club like Spurs.

I hope he does leave and rebuilds his career at another premier league team. He has been very good in Irelands last few games despite not being at match fitness. Wolves would be a good move for him, they are a better team than Spurs in many ways.

Last game for Ireland that I saw he was excellent. Suits a 3 at the back and works for Coleman too.

It looks as though Doherty will be leaving Tottenham. Not good enough for that level.
Another reason why Kenny’s mol an óige agus tiocfaidh sí policy is correct.

With very few exceptions though, Kenny's oige aren't pulling up trees at top club level either; very few regular first teamers. A long and difficult road ahead for he and his successors.

Was he not previously at Wolves ?

Presumably Bohs will be delighted if he moves on

Would probably struggle to get in the Wolves team the guy they bought to replace him is a better play.

Most probably there is no sell on clause which will benefit Bohs.

Another backroom change,  Anthony Barry has left his role as coach to join the Belgium set up.  A blow for Kenny ,as Barry was highly rated after replacing Damien Duff.

Wind ruined it but a cracker in the end.

Interesting to see a decent number of yoof going to Italy. Inter, Milan, Udinese and Roma all took kids from the LoI recently. Much better than the old go to the English midlands route.

Of the Irish U15 squad recently only Rocco Vata played for a British club. His local one.

It's no big deal to have young players signed up with an Italian club, they are usually farmed out, it's a big deal to have a young player in the first team squad. Much better to have young developing players sign for teams in other European leagues than Italy.

Good game. 1-1 at half time. Two top class goals.
