    Player X is not acquiring his citizenship through descent. He is being naturalised by virtue of having an Irish citizen parent and at the discretion of the Minister.

    Then FIFA might have to legislate and I get the feeling that Danny is just itching to propose some legislation
    Until that happens (Qatar - kidnapping minors) there is not a problem existing, therefore there is no statute black hole.

    This is a completely and utterly relevant discussion pertaining to the very foundations of named player's qualification to play for Ireland. What's the point in wading in with one of these type of comments? Ignore the discussion if it doesn't interest you, maybe.

    Yes, and that whole thread is relevant to Gibson, Daniel Kearns, etc. as well but doesn't mean it should be in the player's thread. I don't read that thread as I really don't care, which is why I don't want this thread mucked up. Are discussions like this not exactly why that thread was created?

    It's the early days of the McClean thread all over again.

    I don't think there's any rule against the posting of exciting player-related news as well as having other player-related discussion in this thread. If there are any developments, I'm sure they'll feature.

    The definition of what is/isn't player related is the issue. Anyone visiting this forum with a purely footballing agenda, who clicks on a player's thread and then finds pages of posts that don't even mention the player... they're not gonna hang around for long surely?

    What's your definition? I don't see how the above discussion isn't related to Baba. There's very little "strictly football" news on the lad at the minute anyway, naturally.

    People are free to come and go as they wish, and post as they wish within reason. The purpose of this forum is to discuss Irish football and related issues; not to entertain potential visitors. Discussion of Baba's eligibility certainly isn't preventing anyone from discussing other Baba-related issues, so feel free to go ahead and do it yourself rather than complaining about what other people are discussing in relation to the player.

    Whilst the discussion was relevant the last couple of days as we established this scenario for those who queried it.
    I doubt there'll be much more on it.

    I'd like to know the mods definition.

    Going by past discussions in other threads, there's a tolerance to questions and discussions of a player's particular eligibility, but there is a limit.
    Irwin brought up a very good question which was already answered to some satisfaction in the Eligibility thread (God knows where though), now it has been answered here with reference to Noe Baba.
    I'd totally agree with 'settlement' and moving on.

    Limited eligibility discussion sounds ideal to me.

    Tricky, in his prime (in the bad old days), would have had 5 Noe Baba threads going, simultainously.

    I was reminded of Baba last night when watching The Football League show on BBC. They did a bit on Zaha and the whole will he opt for England or Ivory Coast debate. The clip of that tool Mark Clement putting pressure on a seemingly humble and reserved character like Zaha to commit his future to England in front of a live audience was highly inappropriate and made for uncomfortable viewing.
