    Simon Cox (F Western Sydney Wanderers b.1987)

    Is this guy worth a look, seems to be a regular for a premiership bound WBA? Scored 7 goals in 14 appearances this season.

    aye, he looks good alright from what ive seen - he was discussed on another thread in here recently, ill see if i can find it.

    here it is: http://foot.ie/forums/showthread.php...ox#post1292717

    he probably deserves his own thread as im pretty sure that he will be called up if eligible.

    He certainly talks the talk a lot better than the likes of Morisson and Westwood!
    Reading-born Cox said: "If Giovanni Trapattoni or anyone from the FAI gave me a call then the first thing I'd say would be 'yes, I'd be delighted to come on board'.

    "When I was at Reading, I regularly told Kevin Doyle and Stephen Hunt about my availability. We didn't go into huge detail about it - because it's not their responsibility to pick the team.

    "But they know - and hopefully Mr Trapattoni knows - that if a call is made that I'd give a positive response. I don't want to be cheeky about it and force the issue because ultimately it is the manager's decision.

    "It's important to be respectful about a situation like this. I'd be very proud to get the chance - not just for me but also my Nan, who I'm very close to." Cox's timing could not be better because Trap is on the hunt for fresh talent and wants to boost the quality in his squad.


    Could be another good option, though we've a host of young strikers all about the same level, Cox should be one to keep an eye on.

    From that above post though it does make me wonder out of curiosity if Trap would know him from Adam.

    Well the guy seems to a tangable link with Ireland. Similar to McCarthy. I'd be delighted to see him selected and I'm sure most genuine Irish supporters would feel the same way.
    Always look on the bright side of life

    so you're complaining that there's slim pickings for players in the FA Cup thread, and then then complain when the FAI try to do something about the player pool?
    All goals, yellow and red cards tweeted in real time on twitter and facebook

    Have to agree with Tets here. When you play countries with 20 million more people than you have, you do what you can.

    It's such a shame that Ireland can't produce quality players who are born in Ireland. Thats the good thing about the infusion of foreign people into Ireland in the last 15 years or so is that the offspring of these people will bring some badly needed skill & intelligence to Irish football.Look at Paul McGrath with his Nigerian blood that made him the player he was. The Jack Charlton years were a joke and a disgrace to international football with this grannyrule. Owen Coyle & Bernie Slavin & o'Cascarino ffs. The influx of all these people from foreign lands will enhance Irish sport and who knows Ireland may get a decent Heavyweight boxer out of it.

    Surely the issue here is Cox wants to play for us. It's not a question of begging him. He is the best forward prospect we have on the horizon and should be called up as an option for the next campaign.

    Diaspora

    I believe we should be allowed to harness our vast diaspora and once a player is committed and proud, and has genuine links to Ireland should be allowed to represent Ireland.

    In fairness to Cox, he has been making noise about playing for Ireland for some time and has made his intentions clear since his time at Reading and has qualified this by saying his relationship with his Granmother prompted him to declare. Thats certainly fair enough in my book.

    I would prefer to stay clear of uncommitted last chance merchants who may or may not declare eg Nolan or players who have formerly represented another country at underage level.

    So lets see how Cox gets on this year and he continues to display promise and has a good goals return lets give him a chance in the squads for the friendlies in the Spring/Summer.

    The best forward prospect we have is Stokes I think.

    Yes we can. We have and we will continue to.

    How have you determined that it was McGrath's Nigerian blood that made him the player he was? According to you, how do you feel Nigerian blood, as opposed to Irish blood, creates a better footballer?

    Is it just me, or does this contradict itself slightly?

    We already have one: Martin Rogan. We've produced plenty decent heavyweight boxers in the past too. In any case, what does it matter? We have some great boxers. It doesn't matter what weight class they are.


    On the topic of Simon Cox; I haven't seen him play, but his statistics from recent seasons are impressive. If he's eligible and we can profit from having him play for Ireland, I see absolutely no problem with having him in the team.

    lads, i gave up arguing with this spoofer last week. Id advise you all to do the same. As someone mentioned previously, he is probably one of those morons that already has been banned from the forum.

    Boring.
