    Well, that's where the Coventry / Liverpool birthplace difference comes into play Owly, more recent movement to the midlands city, an Irish name in Liverpool could be from 150 years back. In my theory with more holes than substance in it anyway.

    It was the JonJoe element that got me thinking he had to be irish in combination with the surname. If he's third or fourth generation Irish, I would have been surprised to see such a forename. The whole package shouted Irish but alas not to be.
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    Liverpool is basically an Irish city, but unfortunately for us, with most of them it goes back to far. I remember working in Liverpool during euro 88 and the scousers went mental when ray scored. Could have been in dublin.

    Someone did mention that there's a lad called liam coyle who is meant to be handy for liverpool youths that can play for us.

    Marcus Harness got a hat trick for Burton Albion away to Rochdale today in League One. He was due to come onboard or was confirmed eligible from my recollection. He's 22 now so overage for under 21 campaign upcoming.

    I hope nothing's holding him back. He needs to follow Callum Robinson's lead.

    Eamonn Brophy of Kilmarnock being linked with a move to Leeds this week. Has to be 2G Irish with that name?

    Has Sean Longstaff's eligibility been confirmed?
    He had a decent game against Chelsea today.

    Yeah... interesting development. Is he better than his record would suggest? I guess we'll see over the next few months.

    True. He has missed the guts of three years of football with knee injuries so even though he has just turned 26 he has only.played 70 odd games at senior level which is pitiful. Hopefully gets a clear run of games now at Ipswich to show some of that old underage man utd form

    If Redmond wanted to meet he could easily have done so. Looks like he is not interested.

    Fair play. Positive by King. Brennan knows his stuff so the more the merrier on that front.

    The link doesn’t work. What does it say? Who’s King?
    I pity the fool!.... But suggest ways that he might improve himself.

    "Just off the phone to Noel King who asked me if I would be interested in being by (sic) an official talent spotter for Irish eligible players for the FAI in London. Will sign the paperwork tomorrow. #COYBIG" is what Brennan's tweet says.
