    Making up the numbers and being there for the training is what "in and around the senior squad" is. He's either ready or he's not. He might be.

    It's pretty hard to judge him at the moment, he's not starting a lot of games in Holland, and hasn't scored or assisted a goal yet. The reports on his performances have been positive, but Cambuur are playing terrible at the moment and are early favourites for relegation.

    I suppose training with the squad is going to be the first step no matter what. I'd interpret his comments as showing a big desire to actually compete for a place on the team if the chance arose, other than just making up the numbers, but I'd be surprised if he wasn't thrilled about any sort of a call up behind it all.

    Cambuur did start terribly, with four big defeats in their first five games, but they went on a five game unbeaten run before being beaten by Heerenveen last weekend - unfortunately all those games unbeaten were draws so they haven't climbed out of the relegation zone - this mini-turnaround did coincide with Byrne starting to play after injury, so maybe he played a significant part in steadying the ship, even if he didn't contribute directly to any goals and at one point he was "hurled on the receipt", which has got to count for something.

    What an eloquent grounded fella. Here's hoping it all works out for him. And us.

    Also gave two excellent dead-ball deliveries to the far post near the end that nearly led to goals.

    Hit the angle of crossbar and with a terrific free-kick in the recent defeat at Heerenveen:

    Skip to the hour mark, folks. Well worth a listen. This lad has his head well screwed on and if he doesn't make it then it won't be for the lack of wanting or working for it.

    Makes some great points about how different it is playing with Cambuur first team compared to the development squad at City. Also speaks about how he coped with his homesickness through football. And, Christ, he loves a bit of hard work.

    Really hoping for the best with this lad.

    I enjoyed that interview. I thought the comment at the end from Molloy was odd though - Are your family still in Clonliffe Gardens? That's nobodies business.
    That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age

    Not only is it nobodies business,it's a right ignorant comment because it's actually lovely in there, there's some expensive gaffs and the average house would probably be around €300k!

    Why is it an ignorant comment? It seems to be a nice part of the city.

    How many other players are asked if their family is still living in X estate? The inference was clear and, apparently, misguided. They referred to how he's from inner-city Dublin too which was odd. Why not just Dublin?

    I checked it myself last night. I assumed (wrongly) that it was the big block of flats that turns the corner from Clonliffe onto Poplar Row, hence why they made reference to it. Certainly the actual Clonliffe Gardens would appear to have a much glossier look to it, therefore why would they need to move?

    Did JB himself not say he's from inner city Dublin, in context of saying how Manchester isn't such a culture shock but a small town in Holland is?
