    "I’m waiting for him to say, ‘Come and meet me’, and I’ll drive to wherever it is and meet him and his Dad and we’ll get it sorted out."

    Doesn't seem Redmond is bothered either :"I am [interested]," he said. "I’ve spoken to his agent, I’ve tried to met up with him and it’s not been successful yet. I think he has already played with England, hasn’t he?

    "I think he’s been playing well, he’s been having a good season so maybe he is still harbouring hopes he is going to be picked for them."

    It's interesting that we hear "footballers just want to play football" that the likes of redmond and bamford arent actively trying to play football by declaring for Ireland. The only thing that I can see holding them is Southgates general selection policy.

    Southgates like that Employer who keeps dangling the carrot in front of you for a raise and/or promotion so even though youre a general operative you will still clean the toilets.

    Interesting. So it seems the length of time is mainly dependent on how organised/co-operative the 'giving' association decides to be.

    Always has been - the north held up Shane Duffy for months even though his eligibility was never in dispute. The committee sitting more regularly is the main one in this case.

    Do we know how many of our young prospects, with dual nationality, are with Nike? This is likely to be a very big factor/influence going forward in their decision.

    Pretty sure Ronan is with Nike. Why does this make any difference?

    There is a thought process that suggests the "athletes" are more valuable to the sponsor if they play for a team that is also with the sponsor. Usually this means club team but sponsors also apply this to country, if there is an element of choice on that.

    Well, a player is also more valuable to a sponsor if he’s playing in the Premier League. Playing for Ireland is a way to increase your profile if you’re an up and coming player from the Championship or lower tiers, where you’re likely nowhere near being considered for England.

    NI continuing their issuance of stick or twist ultimatums to young lads by calling up Arsenal's 19 year-old, English-born Daniel Ballard.

    Or in plain English: NI promote successful NI u-21 and u-19 player to full squad.

    He's a grown man who can choose who to play for

    Tongue was in cheek. You were quick on the uptake. I'm sure OWC is being heavily-monitored by members of this forum also.

    My heavy monitoring of this site amounts to three months since my last post. Since when I noticed you've managed about 175

    Back to Ballard- I predict he'll get 10 minutes in one of the games if the result's inevitable.

    I'm not sure how you dreamt that one up, but it's incorrect.

    SD elected to switch to the FAI in May 2010. However, his new registration was held back by FIFA, along with numerous other non-urgent re-registrations, because FIFA were clearing a backlog of players who were switching in order to represent a team in the 2010 World Cup Finals in South Africa that summer.

    Had ROI qualified, and SD been required for the senior squad, his re-registration would have been fast-tracked.

    Either way, there was no delay on the IFA's part.

    I think the main reason that held up Shane Duffy's switch from the dark side to the FAI was because the IFA had taken their Daniel Kearns' case to CAS and both events coincided.
    Possibly an embittered association such as the IFA could drag their heels and effect some delay but there's a limit to what they can do, apart from - can't find a stamp, can't find a post office.

    See my previous post, which must have crossed yours in the ether, for the correct explanation.

    And as for being "embittered", when SD joined up with an FAI training camp around the same time, where he got v.seriously injured, the IFA immediately sent him their best wishes for a speedy recovery.

    But heyho, why let the facts get in the way of a good story...
