Robbie Brady is in the Irish team, and he wants to stay there
It looks like Manchester United youngster Robbie Brady will make his Ireland debut tomorrow night against Oman and he plans on sticking around too.
The shocker is Astana is still hard to comprehend without developing a vicious migraine. The awful tactics, the below-par individual performances and the sense of a ship adrift made it a very uncomfortable 90 minutes to watch for all Irish fans.
The prospect of a meaningless friendly against Oman tomorrow night didn’t exactly inspire us either but a few new faces making their debut might make it worth a watch after all. According to reports today, David Meyler will make his first appearance in green at Craven Cottage but it is the prospect of seeing Robbie Brady’s senior debut that is really appealing.
The Manchester United youngster has yet to play a competitive game for the Premier League giants but he has shone on loan at Hull and for the Irish underage teams. Now he will get the chance to shine at senior level, and he wants to make sure it isn’t just a one off.
In today’s Irish Independent he tells Daniel McDonnell his desire to book a permanent spot in Trap’s plans.
“I’m delighted that I’m in but I just don’t want to come in, meet everybody, say hello and go back out. Hopefully I have come in to stay,” he said. We hope so too Robbie, we hope so too.
Brady also tells McDonnell that he may well be leaving Old Trafford on loan again this season, despite featuring for the club on their pre-season tour.
“I spoke to him (Ferguson) early last month when he had me as cover and he wanted me to stay. But they’ve got cover at left-back now (following the arrival of Alexander Buttner), and I want to play as many games as I can so maybe another loan move would be good.
“I enjoyed the season at Hull, it was my longest without injury and I got 40-odd games which is the most I’ve ever played in a season and I really enjoyed it.”
Brady is potentially a superstar so we hope he continues to progress for club and country. Whatever about United, Ireland certainly needs him.
