    Interesting question - we were primarily talking about him switching before the Ryan Johansson issue arose - even if he declares, we've got to hope that he had an Irish Passport while playing for England underage

    We should move on and forget him.
    OK, he is clearly a high quality forward and if he had done this three years ago and signaled intent to play for us we'd have jumped at the chance. But since then Robinson and Hogan switched, McGoldrick had his late-career renaissance and Obafemi, Connolly, Idah and Parrott have all broken through with Afolabi, Odubeko, Cassidy, Kayode and Scully in the popeline. So now the prospect of Bamford switching would probably lead to a much more muted reaction, although I guess he would still be a useful short-term option if this form continues

    Agree with CP that he'll have notions of an England call up now. He's kept his options open this long, he's not likely to stop dreaming now that he's actually scoring goals in the PL. Maybe we could lure him in with a place in our Euro squad, should we qualify, but that wouldn't go down too well!

    He may be on a good run now but how long will it last? Generally his finishing is woefully inconsistent. He's had ample time to declare for us in the past and hasn't so I think we should focus on the lads who do want to play for us.

    Hes 27, hes now moved into the Jamie O'Hara level of nonsense that we are still talking about him. Hes had more than enough chances to declare. I dont care if he scores 20 goals this year, hes not Irish.

    Scott Hogan is a better forward, but didnt have Marcelo a chief. Anyway i would call him, put the ball on his side.

    If I was Kenny, I’d probably make a call and ask him if he’d like to declare. Few minute conversation. Simple yes or no. And if it’s a no, then move on...

    I understand how fans feel, but if you’re Kenny, you’d feel as though Martin O’Neill might not have been the best person to initiate those conversations...

    I gave him until September 2019 to make a decision and that was stupid. Screw him.

    Bamford improved because of Bielsa. Bielsa put him under his wings because Paddy reminds of himself as a player. Marcelo comes from a very powerful and traditional family from Rosario Santa Fé big rich province, chris de burgh was born there as well.
    His family is very wealthy, real state brokers and investors, lawyers, and jurists.
    His sister was a senator now she his in a government office as a chief of something, and his brother chancellor of foreign affairs. He was kicked out of football because of his background, not because he was a crap center back.
    He was very well educated, etc, thats why they call him el loco, because he was already rich, he didnt need the money of football. we call this upper class people in Argentina plata vieja, means that their old money that comes from their great great great fathers and mothers.

    That's ignoring Mick's attempts though, who made repeated efforts to get him on board. It seems he's never even bothered getting his Irish passport in order too, you'd think he'd do that at the very least.

    He was just ignoring Mick's efforts in the end too, which doesn't sit well, but he may have been afraid of getting in too deep at that point and having to publicly declare one way or the other.

    Regardless, I'd still welcome him to be honest, he's been straight up about his heavy preference for England, but also his reluctance to close the door on Ireland completely. It's not like he's been leading us on and his connection to Ireland is a strong one, why shouldn't he keep both doors open for as long as he likes?

    You're worse than an England football fan harking back to 1966 for an event so distant it's meaningless to most people. I think it's twice in the last week or two you've done this. It's pathetic and annoying. Grow up.

    Watching him here versus City. He's not very fast. Not is Kane or McGoldrick but he doesn't look that skilfull. I would be surprised if he ever got an England cap. And, given his stance, I don't think he's good enough for us to call him up.

    I hope all his mam's brothers that he spoke about being mad for him to claim for Ireland are able to admire his club caterer at least.

    He's good enough for our squad, but that isn't 't the issue.

    Nearly scored a dramatic late winner with a beautiful diving header. Which his own keeper saved.

    He is. But when I account for his stance, I don't think he is worth pursuing.
