    The Indo saying they've heard what most of us are thinking i.e. Louie Barry is a goner.

    He can still switch back to us if he doesn't make it!

    Unlikely we'll see him in green again (I believe he played for our under 16s?) but he is still potentially eligible I think at this point in time.

Has played alot for us at 15s and 16s and looked very committed in bad weather and in poor facilities in Kerry in the victory shield.
    Does anyone know exactly how he qualifies?

    Irish grandparent according to the indo article. Based on nothing other than his surname I'm going to guess from Cork.

    No issue with him going with England, he is English born and it looks like he is making his mind up early, can't fault him for that.

    Yeah, I just read the article and was going to edit but you beat me to it.

    Ah well...another one bites the dust! (perhaps)

    Wouldn’t trust the independent by default - they did tell us that Declan Rice had chosen ireland. Although it’s always the more likely option.

    You could argue that getting out will make it easier for Louie to play for ireland. He did post a thing online a while back when asked what his happiest moment was? And it said something like “proudest grandad in the world” and it was his grandad with him in a country pub holding his Ireland jersey.

    We’ll see in due course

    In this case they're citing FAI sources, which you'd imagine are more objective than Declan Rice's da.

    When mick came in then fai sources were been quoted saying rice was definitely staying with us. Alot can happen in the next few years. Nobody thought Joe hodge was going to walk away from been first choice for England under 17s and commit to us like he did this season

    Would Hodge have been a starter for England 17 side?

    In light of Kenny's interview with Dunphy, actually, we could see Hodge at senior level soon after Kenny is senior manager.

    The only thing is, we all remember those quotes bandied about by Grealish's brother as to how Jack liked that we picked him an age above consistently. I'm sure it's a nice little bonus to Hodge to get to a 19s Euros- completely aside from his long-term international intentions (not trying to cast doubt on them, just highlighting the point all else aside).

    I think we should be clear on the hodge situation. Ye was first choice for the Brits under 15, 16 and last season under 17.. he also was involved with us from under 15.

    He was and is consistently namechecked as one of the most promising players in that 2002 age group on their forum http://www.bigsoccer.com/forums/england.98/ . They were gutted when he did not play for them in their qualifiers after Christmas as they had fully expected that when qualifiers came around he would be with them.

    Whatever the reason was he played for us at under 17 was it most certainly wasn't because he was not first choice for England

    Cheers Liam. Good to hear. They were hankering for Grealish to be their first choice too. There's a long race to run on this one.

    Dan Crowley on his way to Birmingham City. What would worry me there is that they don't have a manager at present. Hopefully the incumbent has space for a player like Crowley. Disappointed he didn't persist with playing on the continent a while longer.
