    I'd never even heard of him.
    Surrised Matt Doherty wasn't given a go but saw him wearing gloves in a match the other day so maybe O'Neill/Keane thought 'I just can't trust a man who wears gloves'

    Everyone knows my stance on Granny rule players, i thought we were already relatively covered with Coleman, O'Brien and Doherty at RB and there are 4 or 5 better forwards than McGoldrick already in the squad but they are committed and hungry and that's all you can ask for! Nobody even knew Christie was eligible 2 months ago and now here he is after turning down England U-21 honors - no ifs, buts and maybes; In the USA squad and the Scotland squad.

    It's not Kane, Naughton or Bamford but always good to have options i suppose!

    You flatter yourself.
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    "The England U21s were in touch as well but for me the Republic of Ireland was the better option. They’ve not got many right-backs here so that was the main thing but the manager getting in touch with me – that’s always a pleasing aspect. There are more opportunities and they’ve got a good team here and the manager getting in touch with me – that was more of a selling point as well.”"

    “I’ve seen Seamus Coleman numerous times. He’s a terrific player – it’s tough competition but I think I can learn a lot from him. He was in the Team of the Year last year and I think he’s been one of the best full-backs in the Premier League for the last few years. It’ll be good to be alongside him and learn from him. It’s pleasing to see that there’s not too many people ahead of me – that you’re going to be given an opportunity. I think that’s what’s good about playing for Ireland.

    I've no problem with that. We know there are "career oriented" players out there. He made his mind up promptly and credit for that.

    Caption competition. I'll start with a very poor effort.

    DMcG: "At least I didn't declare for Scotland when they wanted me. If it's cold here it'll be way worse there"

    Definitely. He has been quick to dismiss the England interest and has declared for us early in the day, which is to his credit. As a dual national, he was more than entitled to weigh up his options. Why wouldn't he? Many England-born players who've declared for us haven't had the burden of such an option to weigh up. And just because he's career-oriented doesn't mean he can't feel a sentimental attachment to Ireland or pride in representing the land of his grandmother either. He's an Irishman in law now and I'm sure that pride is something that will only further develop the more he immerses himself in the squad and explores/finds that side of his identity.

    I was wondering were they going to give him a nickname like Billy (as in Billy Ray Cyrus) or Browner (as in Christy Brown) but then thought of Miley (as in Miley Cyrus, and Miley from Glenroe)

    Looks like I'm not alone there Stuttgart

    They werent speaking to eachother lads so those captions are just whatever ye felt the order of the day was.

    Its more like Cyrus the Virus realised they had made a mistake following the drills, he informs McGoldy who promptly and slyly does a quick turn in the hope no one notices. None of ye have obviously been involved in drills or got them wrong :P

    I've been secretly hoping for this, great to read:

    “Yeah, I’ve played at left back,” he says, agreeably. “I played left back when I was first in the Championship, played there quite a few times so I’m capable of playing there, it’s just the same as right back really, there’s not much difference. I don’t mind playing off my left foot.

    The natural question is, if Cyrus falls out of favour, how would he feel about being called up to preliminary squads and left out of the final squads? And how would he feel if he was left out of squads?

    Would that be a good thing about playing for Ireland?

    Christ. It's not hard to see his trail of thought on that one. It follows on from his praise of Coleman really.."Coleman's class.. but that Ward lad...."

    Who cares? Why preempt something not remotely on the table at present.

    If he resents his initial call up then fine. But that's his prerogative. Kevin Foley did similarly after the Euro squad announcement and he's from Ireland. Is he immune to criticism or is the criticism covering your own xenophobic beliefs about "impure" Irishmen

    Edit- always thought he was from Palmerstown. Turns out Luton. Anyway I think your concerns at Christie's motivation are OTT.
