Now today was Stoke's 6th goal from a Delap throw in. Now I think he should be in the Ireland team and heres why.

I've watched his overall play and it's not bad. He is quite good on the ball, good passer and can score also.

He is quite an average midfielder however, he should play for Ireland in CM. Is he worse than Gibson. No. Is he worse than Whelan. Stoke think not. But them throw ins are making 4 or 5 wonderful chances a game.

So if you think I'm ridiculous for saying that a player should start because he takes a great throw in fair enough. But our CM's are quite average anyway so why not just stick him in when there are great opportunities created while he is on the pitch.

Tbh, I don't want Trap to have any more incentive to play the long ball. As it is we are too defensive, especially in midfield. We desperately need a creative player in there, Andy Reid.
Ok I don't tink u shud say what have i been smokin because most people here have so far said that he should be in the squad at least. Plus the fact that Delap is playing regular first team football whereas Whelan isn't so it's not that rediculous.

Now your defensive argument doesn't make sense. If we are too defensive Delap would be perfect. He gets forward slighly more than the other 2. I'm not saying that he should be ahead of Stephen Ireland but he's not there is he. Delap works hard and can pass the ball well.

Another point is that yes we are quite negative I agree, which means we don't attack that much. His throw ins are creating so many chances and we all know how important set-pieces are in international football. If he's getting a team like Stoke to almost score from a throw-in every game why not Ireland. Dunne, O Shea, Doyle, Kilbane are quite useful in the air.

Now told you all. 2 Delap throw ins was the difference between Stoke losing and winning. They are too good to be ignored and Keano4Taoiseach must answer what he has been smoking.
