    Maguire has scored twice tonight for Cork away to Dundalk. Martin O'Neill and Roy Keane are in attendance. Still 20 minutes to go.

    They were both brilliant finishes too. One touch but real poacher's finishes. The second was a delightful glancing header. Both borne from his elusive movement.

    He looks good in all around play too. It's a bit more difficult for him though as he's somewhat isolated and is tightly marked by two men when he gets it.

    Ryan Delaney is centre back for Cork. He looks a prospect. 20 years and is big and moves well too. On loan from Burton Albion.

    Hat-trick. Capitalises on a Dundalk mistake and lifts it over the keeper with a deft finish. Food for thought for the management.

    EDIT: The way he lifted that ball over the keeper and his body shape doing it reminded me of Robbie against Germany in 2002...

    Preston are supposedly targeting Kevin O'Connor too.

    Seemed to be Preston for a while. Great to see they have given him a 3 year deal. Good show of faith.

    Great stuff. He should be catapulted into the Austria XI now

    He might have a better chance of getting a game for them but I don't think he qualifies.

    Frankly perplexing comments from O'Neill in relation to Maguire: https://www.rte.ie/sport/soccer/2017...y-for-austria/

    When asked about why Maguire hasn't been called upon, O'Neill said the following:

    Quote Originally Posted by Martin O'Neill

In terms of people coming to train, I’ve never had a problem with that and sometimes they pick up a few things that would help them with experience, so I’d have a look at [the possibility of bringing him in].

    But in terms of someone starting a game against Austria, which is a really, really important match, with no experience, I think that would be a tough call for the player.
    O'Neill is erecting a total strawman there. Nobody was saying that Maguire should start against Austria. It's just bizarre waffle to even speak in those terms, as if someone had seriously suggested it. What people had suggested was to bring Maguire in to train with the squad, maybe give him a run-out in one or both of the friendlies and see how he fares.

    If O'Neill has no problem with bringing people in to have a look at them, as he claims and which is really what people who appreciate Maguire's abilities have been suggesting, then why didn't he bring Maguire in to train with the squad in Fota Island, which is only a few miles down the road from Cork?

    O'Neill did at least say he was very impressed by Maguire last night, although he also admitted that he missed the last goal, which came in stoppage time, as he had departed Oriel Park in the 83rd minute.

    Not too surprised that he left early, I've been to games where visiting players and management have left before full time to avoid the requests for photos, autographs, etc

    Super important now that Maguire end his LOI season as soon as possible and get some rest before pre-season training and a long and grueling season in English Championship.
    The lack of rest has affected Horgan and Boyle's performances at Preston

    What's important is that he continues to perform throughout our European campaign as long as he's available. He can print off the boarding pass then along with his invitation to Ireland training.

    As has been agreed by both clubs, he'll remain at Cork for most of July so as to enable him to play up to the first leg of the third qualifying round of the Europa League, if Cork make it that far.

    Sort of crazy on Seanie's part. No doubt he wants to play for Cork in Europe - it would be strange if he didn't. But he's going to be knackered by the time October / November comes around. And then comes the heavy pitches in England. A recipe for injuries wouldn't you say. And where does that leave his Ireland career at a time when we are crying out for a bona fide striker? And then of course there is the chance that he gets seriously injured for Cork and the transfer to Preston is called off.

    Obviously, it's his decision as the release clause was met and the transfer window opens at the start of July. Considering that, it's entirely possible - perhaps even likely - that he has weighed up the potential costs and benefits of staying at Cork for most of July and is relishing both the prospect or experience of testing himself against European opposition again and potentially helping his club progress.

    I'm sure you're right. He will have considered all of the above. But I can see a scenario where Cork are doing well in Europe (probably having qualified for Europa League) and he has to leave for Preston. All for naught at the end of the day for the player himself.

    In what sense? It might prove to be good experience for him. As an added bonus, he might even get personal enjoyment or fond memories from a potential European run.

    Yes, he'll get all of the above with Cork. And I think you're right he will shine and I would back them to make it to the Europa League proper given the level of football they are playing right now.
    But the man himself has said he is over the moon about his move to Preston and he can't wait to get started and there is talk of him being a goal-getter for Preston. But he is spreading himself too thin.
    He's in his mid season now with City and he'll surely hit the ground running for Preston's pre-season, but he's going to hit a wall before Christmas because he'll have had no break.
