    Great to see another youngster breaking into his first team. Hopefully he and the other recent Championship debutants (Kelly, Shodipo, O'Keeffe, Field) can hold onto their places and give us extra options in the next couple of seasons.

    I didn't know what his International situation was so I gave him a quick google.

    "I'll show England what their missing" is the first headline I see.

    If his main goal after getting an Intl call up is to prove a point to another country, it's not totally encouraging.

    This lads story has been discussed elsewhere. He played for a kind of England reserve under 17 s 2 years ago and also for our under 17s. No chance he was going to make their side for the euro s that summer but was picked for our squad. At the time he was at Rochdale I think and was just making the move to wolves. England lads on big soccer were not fussed that he had switched http://forums.bigsoccer.com/threads/...#post-32639094. The arsenal lad mcguane played for us in that under 17 euros but then switched to Brits . No point making a drama about it obviously he may leave us but unless we stop picking lads who have dual nationality that's always goin to be the way. There were plenty saying Randolph was rubbish and could **** off when he talked about been eligible for the USA 4 or 5 years ago but I don't see many whinging about him now.

    If you bothered your arse to read the article you'll see he went away with England and went away with Ireland the following week. He weighed up which he preferred and he preferred the Irish set up.

    You have taken that line out of context. He doesn't say it like a jilted lover who goes out to shift someone in front of the person that dumped them to make them jealous.

    He had the option to play for either country and picked us and I'm sure his old man is proud.

    I did read it.

    Ronan said:
    “I’ve seen a few of them (England players) around the hotel and had a chat with them.
    “I’m looking forward to playing England and showing them what they are missing really.”
    Anyways, we'll see what happens down the road. No point arguing about it.

    The only 3 lads in our under 19 s this season who have played first team in the uk are Ronan O Keefe and Barrett . All these r English born with dual nationality. Let's stop picking lads with dual nationality for our underage sides to keep towk happy .

    Where did I say anything remotely like "I want him" or "I don't want him" in the Intl set up?

    Seems to have done very well. "Qualifies through father's grandparents?" Can't be right.

    Sure we don't need any of them, we can pick Paddy Madden instead.

    Wrong of course. The other article above sees Connor referring to both his father's parents as being Irish-born and he's aware enough to mention the counties so I'd imagine there's a strong identification by his old man.

    Well, at least with Madden we won't have to worry about the inevitable saga of what country he is going to play for.

    Don't understand the derision towards him.

    Regular goalscorer (albeit at League One level), good movement, can play out wide.

    Going off his appearance against Wales, he can't possibly be any worse an option than McGoldrick, Best, Rooney, N. Hunt, Sammon, Cox and any number of options who have got call ups over the years.

    I'm sure the derision is towards you, not Madden.

    He's not cap-tied to us and he's eligible for England through residency.

    First the English FA surreptitiously steal Jack Grealish from us, now Paddy Madden.
