    That lad Duggan is meant to be a handy player. I think he had his pick of premiership clubs but chose Peterborough. Might prove to be a wise choice.

    Wow. Nice to see that from an Irish prospect. Hopefully he has a bit more left to grow.

    Bamford, Redmond and Crowley. Getting these players on board would certainly excite fans!

    I read a couple of reports about this game and all the focus was on the centre-forward, and a small bit about Crowley. Judging by the highlights above, Crowley was the one pulling the strings completely.
    Here they come! It’s the charge of the “Thanks” Brigade!

    Crowley is so highly rated that several months ago, Roy Hodgson invited him to train with the English team. Part of that may have been concerns that he may declare for Ireland in the future, but given there are plenty of young lads in England that can play with Ireland, it shows how highly he is rated.

    Wilshere has mentioned him in interviews about youngsters in the academy at Arsenal. He seems to rate him really highly.

    Duggan scored a few goals in the earlier rounds and they seem to have been crackers. Good to see, as I think he only went over in the summer.

  9. Thanks From:

    Who would any of them get in the team ahead of?

    If they have any chance of playing for England, they are not our immediate concern.

    yeah - should have read through the thread again. His flip-flopping to date gives us some cause to be hopeful...

    Very confusing thread to read, obviously he is a good player, but he is not committed until he has played a full international, correct?
    Having said that, it looks like we have lost him to the Ireland B-team..

    TOWK will like that smack of realism, how they read the whole keeping the options open.

    "If he's not good enough he will go to play for Ireland"

    I'd suggest it's very positive that he's unwilling to commit to England, particularly when he's being asked the question by a small and local English publication.

    Hopefully somebody from the FAI is following this one up because it sounds as though he just went along to the England trials as a young kid looking to play a bit more football.

    That is not what it sounds like at all and that is not what our compatriots in England think either. Wake up and smell the coffee. He doesn't want to alienate the Irish side incase things dont work out with England. Some seem to have a very insular or perverse method of thinking when it comes to these players.

    He is theirs to lose.

    If he's with England already and they continue selecting him, I don't see why he'd go out of his way and force a move to change the status quo.

    cos he considers himself irish or in the case as some across here put it "more irish than english".

    surely that's the whole eligibility debate there.

    I'd be surprised if Crowley switched so long as things are rosy for him in the England set-up. If he's happy playing with them for the mean-time, in spite of being well aware of his Irish heritage and having previously played for us at an earlier level, you'd imagine he'd be happy to let things continue that way rather than upsetting the apple-cart. He sounds to be more in tune with his Irish roots than the likes of Jermaine Pennant, but if he genuinely harbours ambitions of playing for us, you'd expect him to accept a call-up. Have the FAI been in touch with him of late? In saying that, interest from England didn't stop Ciaran Clark from switching aged 20/21, so you never know... Clark went from being England's under-20 captain one year to being a senior Irish international the next.

    I don't think a comparison with the situation of Jack Grealish is appropriate at all. Grealish has been playing for us (and not England) since the age of 14. He has never declared any positive interest in switching to England. He's always demonstrated commitment to us.

    In what sense does it embody the whole debate?

    I'm guessing your first line there is sarcasm? Or does he actually consider himself primarily Irish despite having been born in England to England-born parents?
