    Thing about Byrne is, if this was any other Irish player playing a decent game or two at L1 level we wouldn't say a thing. The fact that everyone is so aware of his ability and the circumstances of the past 12 months means that it's perfectly acceptable to be very appreciative of a glimpse of form. And Sheridan will gain even more respect for this.

    Goal and assist tonight to put Oldham 2 up away to Bristol Rovers. Taken off on 79 to a standing ovation. Two of Bristol's Irish Ryan Sweeney and Rory Gaffney then bring it back to 2-2 before Eoin Doyle got the winner for Oldham in 88th min.

    Still an exciting prospect for us.

    Didn't get a chance at Blackburn or Wigan at all so can't judge him on that.

    yep hopefully makes a name for himself at oldham(in a good way). I think its getting harder and harder for young Irish players to impress UK managers. Its really luck in some cases as managers change so often

    Looking at the goal and the assist, the technique he demonstrates is superb. Definitely a cut above the technique at that level. Surely the technique of a PL player and this move is looking inspired so far to help him get up there.

    Im convinced that Byrnes biggest problem will always be that managers in England will always look at him as being too small, especially in the lower divisions.

    I would love to see him go play in a good European league
    The greatest trick that Trapattoni ever pulled was convincing the Irish players and fans that it was OK to accept that smaller teams can't compete with big ones

    If he keeps up this form, the big question becomes: what happens in the New Year when his loan period runs out? Will he have to return to a club where there seems to be friction between him and the manager? That could lead to his career stalling again just after getting going unless he can mend fences with Cook. Hopefully he can get an extension at Oldham as he seems to have settled right in there and can get his career going again with a strong full season

    Is it not a season long loan?

    No, a four moth contract.

    To be honest I don't think it was a case of friction between him and Cook. The manager himself said it was nothing personal. He asked three players (Bogle, Power and Byrne) is train with the Academy as he didn't see that they had an immediate place in a squad he was trying to rebuild. Bogle since left for Cardiff while Power, when no-one came in for him, has worked his way back onto the subs bench. I can't see Byrne working his way back into his plans as Wigan have made a decent start to the season. Not sure what will happen in January, Wigan will probably be happy to extend his loan but if he continues to do well he may earn a permanent move elsewhere I'd imagine.

    You'd worry that if a bit of interest forms that Wigan will hold Jack to ransom and look for a fee even though he's not in their plans. Hopefully not.
