    There's one space left. Andone is already a sub. Who gets the last spot?

      Connolly by a mile. Good young English player wins every time for me.

      Clearly Locadia hasn't performed and Connolly has (albeit at a lower level) but as we know strikers thrive on confidence. IF he does play I just hope it's in his natural position and not some BS false nine or on the wing type scenario. I want youngsters to play with gay abandon and to perform at their highest level not within themselves by playing to instruction. Come on CH make it so.

      In all seriousness, judging by their current form and lack of top players, Connolly can’t be far away from the Irish senior squad can he?!

      I assume the English part was tongue in cheek?

      He speaks English, so we’ll count him as one of ours
      Barndoor Gatting, Barndoor Davies, Barndoor Holroyd, Barndoor Paynter. Who is next for this coveted title? Barnes is currently favourite to take the crown from Billy Paynter.

      Until he's had 4 or 5 pints at least, then we wouldn't have a feckin clue what he's going on about.

      Connolly should be given a chance to step up, who knows what an appearance in the last 20 mins would produce.

      Such has been the form of Murray since Locadia arrived that he has never been given the game time he so clearly needs. A cameo here, a thankless game up front on his own away at City and the occasional out of position role in poor away team displays means that I don’t think we have seen what he is capable of.

      Given the competition he now faces from Andone and possibly Connolly in trying to dislodge GM I am starting to doubt he’ll ever get a run so maybe he needs to move on to be able to advance his career.

      As to the question I think I might be inclined to give Connolly that last place on the bench. A player in form, albeit at a lower level, probably offers more than a player whose confidence must be shot. Because every game is a cup final there is no room for experimentation or giving a striker time to settle in.

      The fans are also unlikely to cut Locadia any slack given his lack of impact so far so the pressure on him may be too much, Connolly however is likely to have plenty of support given his under 23 performances.
