    QPR fans waxing lyrical about the pass: http://www.wearetherangersboys.com/f...t-Manning-pass

    And, at last, there's a consensus about him it seems- get him a contract, he's playing well and is a prospect: http://www.wearetherangersboys.com/f...8-Ryan-Manning

    Also, this article is in the thread and hasn't been on our own thread here. Definitely worth a read: http://www.independent.ie/sport/socc...-35345468.html

    How anyone thought that wasn't deliberate is off their rockers.

    If his name was Manninho...

    Indeed. It was certainly meant. Delivered a second quality ball in the second half too but Mackie scuffed it.

    The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist thinks it will change; the realist adjusts the sails.

    Has been excellent so far today, really composed. Good to see him having the confidence to take set pieces as well.

    If they hold on this will be 4 wins from 4 since he came into the team.

    Hard to see why he wasn't given more of an opportunity under Hasselbaink but there you go.

    Still only 20.

    Just looked at his record on Wikipedia and he has an eye for goal whoever he's played for - 9 goals in 28 games for Mervue, 6 in 25 for Galway Utd, 1 in 4 for QPR and 5 in 10 appearances for The Country's U-19s

    You can listen to the 'Off the Ball' interview with Manning again here: http://www.newstalk.com/player/embed...cast&id=176585

    Manning on catching Ian Holloway's eye after a lack of opportunities under previous managers:

    Quote Originally Posted by Ryan Manning
    When Jimmy-Floyd [Hasselbaink] came in, nothing changed for me, I was a bit like 'what's going on here?', but when Holloway came in, there was a change in the club really.

    He kind of said, if the players don't want to play for me, they're not going to play for me. And I was desperate to play, I wanted to play for him.

    I think I'd played a 23's match and he came down and took the game and I think, from what a couple have people had said to me, I flew into a couple of challenges and was getting up and down the pitch, and supposedly he saw that I wanted to play and that's what he saw in me. Then, fitness-wise, he thought I could bring legs to the midfield.

    There are things that Ian Holloway in particular looks for, like his players to get up and down the pitch and put in challenges, and luckily enough he saw that I was able to do that and he took a gamble on me.
    And on that assist for Jamie Mackie:

    Definitely meant it.

    I got a lot of tweets saying 'was it a pass or a shot?' but it was definitely a pass to the back stick for Jamie. If it came on my left foot I would have shot all day long, but the righty wasn't the best weapon to have there.
    Some further summary by Balls.ie: https://www.balls.ie/football/ryan-m...olloway-357608

    Quote Originally Posted by Balls.ie

    ...

    While Manning admitted that getting into the Ireland squad is something every Irish player wants to do, he was adamant that he must solidify his place in the QPR team first and hopefully the call will come from there.

    He certainly appears to have a sensible head on his shoulders, and it's not just the seriously impressive 555 points that he got on the leaving cert that show that.

    Nice little piece that caught my eye at the bottom of the page about his transfer from Mervue to Galway - was being watched by scouts even then. Dare we (and he) dream ? http://www.extratime.ie/newsdesk/art...for-galway-fc/

    There's usually Irish based scouts at almost all League of Ireland games. The amount of stories I've heard of 'x player is being watched by Everton' or something similar is nuts.

    Not at Harps' games, surely ?

    ""Ryan Manning has that wonderful sense of humanity which is rare but which every Irish person I have worked with has. And that's a credit.

    "Whatever he puts his mind to, he can do, he is a very talented boy but, deep down, what I like most about him is how ordinary he is. He has had a lot of success, after having a bit of a bad time, but he is such a joy to work with. Well done to his mum and dad. I am very privileged to have him."

    Good country lad.
