Remember when Ireland possessed the kind of left back who could change a game with one swing of his gloriously understated left peg?
It's a position that we've had a bit of a problem with in recent years and, depending on how Robbie Brady takes to that slot, it's a position that we could continue to have problems. Brady may be rather handy over a set-piece but it's unlikely he'll ever be Denis Irwin handy.
Man United legends took on Liverpool legends in Stockholm yesterday and duly ran out 4-2 winners. However, in reality, it might as well be 5-2 considering how impressive Denis Irwin's free kick was. Damn you Sander Westerveld/crossbar for preventing what would have been a a flashback inducing moment.
