    Off the mark today, scoring 31 seconds after coming on. He has had a tendency over the last couple of years of scoring a few goals early in the season before fading so let's hope this time he can get a more consistent long-term run going

    Is this lad on board or not? He has been at a decent level for quite a while and has never even made a 39 man friendly squad.

    He's played at most underage levels for us and there's no reason to believe he'd turn down a call-up from the senior squad. And while he has been at a decent level, he hasn't been quite consistent enough to get a squad place, when you consider that our forward places have been locked down by Keane, Walters, Long, Doyle, Cox (for a while) and Murphy (later on as a result of his surge in form in the last few years of his career) with McGoldrick, Rooney and Hunt ahead of him in the fringe players' race. You could make the argument, certainly, for a call-up for Mason to a large provisional squad, certainly given Sean Maguire's call-up with only a couple of Championship games under his belt, and I think MON and Keano should keep an eye on his form over the season and not just bring in players because of media and fan clamour or because they've invested time recruiting them. We will likely need up to three new strikers for the Euro 2020 qualifiers and they have the opportunity to compare six of them fairly directly as they will all probably be playing regular Championship football this season: McGoldrick, Maguire, Hogan, Mason, Aiden O'Brien and Will Keane (when he returns from injury). They should pick the players with the best form from that group over the next year (while also keeping an eye on Cillian Sheridan and Adam Rooney). So if Mason becomes Burton's main striker and bangs in 15-20 goals this season, a call-up would surely be merited.

    I seem to remember MON casting doubt on his commitment one time, but then again he said something similar about the likelihood of Hogan joining up also. This guy needs to make it stick, he has moved for decent money at times, he can get in the side but cant stay in, he can score at the level but not consistently over a season.

    His Bio claims he would be one of those brick layer guys if football doesn't work out.
