    Keane brought him to Sunderland and then again to Ipswich so he obviously rated him.

    That is most definitely a bad thing.
    Paul, So what about Jonathon Walters, Glenn Whelan and arguably Stephen Quinn? They play for teams who are pretty solid in the Premiership. And if you consider Duffy, Hourihane, O' Kane, Henderson and Carruthers (and there are many others) surely you agree that some of them will make it to the Premiership. Maybe I missed your point , but I think what I said has some credence.

    Barnsley v Bradford on SS2 shortly.

    Hourihane starts, Alan Sheehan left back for Bradford. Mark Yeates and Billy Clarke start for Bradford too. I always liked Yeates.

    He had a couple of good efforts on goal, one well saved by the keeper and onto the post.

    I think it's fair to say he has what is known as a cultured left foot.

    After a terrible run of five games without a goal, Hourihane back on the scoresheet tonight at home to Notts County.

    Scored a penalty (which he won) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rq4PeyEANu0

    He also hit the post late on, unlucky not to scores again.

    Call him up trap.

    A short interview on Conor, his own worst critic it seems which isn't a bad thing.

    5: Keep hold of Conor Hourihane.

    Former boss Danny Wilson deserves credit for investing wisely in Irish midfielder Hourihane, brought in for a six-figure fee from Plymouth with an impressive first campaign at Oakwell justifying the outlay.

    Hourihane showed his predatory prowess by firing 14 goals to follow on from his tally of nine for Argyle last season and cannot have been far away from a spot in the PFA League One Team of the Year.

    A big asset for Barnsley and they could do with keeping hold of him.

    The beard is becoming popular in football, they needed something new now they all have tattoos!!

    (although Conner does not seem to have any, I guess he missed the boat on that one).

    Surprised he didn't move up to Championship following his goalscoring feats last year but he seems to be happy to ply his trade and get their eventually.

    Interesting to note that he reckons Dan Crowley is still undecided. It's been the impression we've had here. In the same way that JG is undecided, because their switches now are final they are making a decision for the rest of their football career. Understandable that they hold off.

    Hopefully, Hourihane progresses on anyway. Seems to have a fine attitude so hopefully he does well tonight.

    No harm in a quick review of that 2008 under 17 side mentioned by Hourihane. Match report for Spain match in which he scored here: http://www.fai.ie/ireland/match/23/2008/302682

    Richie Towell (now at Dundalk)
    Mark Connolly (captain at Kilmarnock)
    Gavin Gunning (short term deal at Oldham following injury-plagued spell at Birmingham)
    Conor Clifford (released by Southend, now with Boreham Wood in the Conference/National League)
    Johnny Dunleavy (Cork City)
    Aaron Doran (Inverness)
    Conor Hourihan (Barnsley)
    Paul Murphy (North End United in 2014/2015)
    Greg Cunningham (was up front for this side, now playing left back or left midfield in the Championship for Preston)
    Gavin Carlin (can't find anything)
    Gearoid Morrissey (Cambridge United)
    Robbie Brady (Norwich)
    Darragh Satelle (Bluebell United is the last I can find of him)

    Would be interesting to see where the Spanish players are now by comparison.
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    Haha at least he can be found, some of them don't seem to have a Wikipedia page at all. Not too much to write home about there, plenty down the lower divisions in Spain. Montoya, Thiago and Canales probably the pick of the bunch these days by the looks of things. A few have gone on the represent Catalonia.
