    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.

    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.

    Interesting one, this.
    Conor Noß, pronounced Noss, came on for Borussia Mönchengladbach today against Athletic Bilbao, and is qualified to play for Ireland. He's a midfielder, and is only 18. Going by their website, he will play for their U23 side this season (see below), which includes the UEFA Youth League

    translated from https://www.borussia.de/de/aktuelles...ilansicht.html
    U23:

    If the U23 of the foals denies their first of seven planned pre-season play-games at SV Bedburdyck-Gierath tomorrow (Friday, 6:30 pm), four players will officially wear the Borussia jersey for the first time. With striker Jan-Niklas Pia (MSV Duisburg), center-back Lukas Müller (FSV Mainz 05), midfielder Jacob Italiano (Perth Glory) and goalkeeper Jonas Kersken (Rot-Weiss Essen), the young Foals have four new entries. Kaan Kurt, Jan Olschowsky, Conor Noß, Noah Holtschoppen, Louis Hiepen, Alper Arslan, Behadil "Benko" Sabani, Berk Cetin, Mawerick Dreßen and Fernando Nissen have also moved from their own U19 in the senior area.

    All of their players who were involved vs Angers yesterday did not play today vs Bilbao, so obviously way down the pecking order coming on as a late sub today. He’s 19 on Jan 1. Will be interesting to monitor but wouldn’t hold my breath on him coming good

    One of my closest friends is involved with a Bundesliga club and would be an acquaintance of Jogi Loew. He’s my go-to person for an opinion on every bundesliga player and one of less than 5 people who’s footballing opinions I would almost intrinsically trust.

    Asked him about Noss about a year ago, he said he was really really highly thought of in Germany at around the age of 12 to 15 but the development has tapered off a decent bit since then, so could go either way. But certainly not a player to write off. My friend went out of his way to say what a nice kid he was and how good his attitude and work ethic was.

    You’d hope he’s included in a squad for the friendlies in September so that Tom Mohan can have a decent look at him. Certainly can’t do any harm.

    There's an English born lad called Stan Flaherty with Arsenal U18s. Any Irish blood I wonder.
