Jonny Evans would start.

Brunt, Hughes and Lafferty would make the squad.

Hughes would be a better option than McShane...Lafferty would probably be in instead of Best.

Bit disappointed at the way McGinn was treated, he seemed to come in for a fair bit of stick from the supporters there near the end.

Don't know what you heard but I was there and that is balls. He got cheered when he came on and applauded several times when he hit crossbar, had a couple or runs.

As for the result, very disappointed. The Slovaks took there chances and we couldn't get the goal when we had them penned in at the start of the second half.

The OWC close their site to members only, just because of the extra traffic and maybe to keep away some unwanted traffic like GDA's shameful gloating. ;D

How many times was Jackie struck in the heart with a dagger?

That couldn't be farther from the truth.

I agree. Where are yis getting the idea that he was booed?
Again, he seemed to do well when he came on. He's lively, always trying to get on the ball. Some strike that hit the bar. A decent wee player.

I only saw the highlights  - limp performance by NI, some awful defending for both goals.
Slovakia were all set up for a draw and would have been happy if it ended like that.

I tuned in around the 70 min mark and, whatever the reason, you could clearly hear boos when mcginn got the ball out on the touchline. Only heard them once but clear as a bell.

Have to disagree - McGinn was very well received, particularly due to his willingness to run with the ball( and hitting the crossbar - though if had went in it would have been a complete fluke). There was actually a bit of expectation when he got on the ball.

Dunno what you heard tyroneman, but i dont think it was for McGinn - Id assume it was one of the several times that a slovakia player hit the deck feigning injury when we had the ball.
That happened several times and got booed strongly.

Not sure - they attacked well down the wings. Man of the match was probably their 19 year old winger - Weiss - who looks like a tricky little player.

McGinn needs to leave Celtic in January as I can't see him getting much game time, its obvious he has talent but if he does not get a platform he will go stale, look at Healy now, lack of first team games is really showing.
