    The Norwegian League is mainly pants.

    Unless it's Rosenborg, reckon even Millwall or most of the SPL would be a higher standard...

    I just thought no one used that word anymore.
    I'm a bloke,I'm an ocker
    And I really love your knockers,I'm a labourer by day,
    I **** up all me pay,Watching footy on TV,
    Just feed me more VB,Just pour my beer,And get my smokes, And go away

    Possibly, but probably higher than LOI.

    'Newcastle United goalkeeper Rob Elliot remains coy on international future': http://www.goal.com/en-ie/news/3942/...remains-coy-on

    The English-born goalkeeper represented Ireland at youth level but is unwilling to commit to either national team just yet and is intent on establishing himself at club level

    Newcastle United goalkeeper Rob Elliot has insisted that it is 'far too early' for him to consider an international career but admitted that an international call-up would be 'an amazing achievement'.

    The 26-year-old shot-stopper is eligible for both England and the Republic of Ireland and represented the Boys in Green at under-19 level, but he has revealed that he is unwilling to commit to one side as yet.

    "It is a strange one, everyone keeps asking whether I am Irish or English," Elliot told the Irish Sun. "If I got an international call-up it'd be an amazing achievement.

    "I don't want to be arrogant and say which country I would like to play for. I don't want to get too far ahead of myself at the moment."

    He added: "To be honest, I think it is far too early to talk about stuff like that. I just want to make a name for myself with Newcastle in the Premier League and anything that comes from there would be fantastic."

    From www.translate.google.com:

    I want to play for England. But I have to wait and see if I can get a call up or if Joe Hart gets injured. If that doesn't happen, I suppose I'll go play for Ireland.

    Here's what I think it means: I'm not good enough to play for England, and normally I'd go play for Ireland right now, but they are a total mess right now so I'll give it a year or two to see if things get any better before wasting my time with them and their crazy old senile manager.

    I really doubt he has a clue about Trap's mental state. What he's saying is, he's a recent debutante in the Premier League who has a fair-decent chance of becoming a first choice player at a decent club with European ambitions, meaning he has a very real shot at getting England caps. If Ireland came knocking, he would weigh up the pros and cons, but his preference would still be to represent his country of allegiance.

    why the hell would it be "far to early" to consider an Int'l career at age 26? He's going to wait until he is 50?

    I assume he means it's far too early in his professional career. Goalkeepers mature much later than outfield players, so he's really only hitting the age where he should be challenging for first team football and he doesn't know whether he'll be good enough to play for England. Not that you have to be particularly good or anything, but the sheer numbers of contenders make it more unlikely than an Ireland cap.

    Aye, surely you mean birth?

    Anyway, if you believe some cretins this was exactly the stance taken by numerous Irish players in the past, even the likes of Houghton & McGrath, FFS.
