    That is exactly what we miss in midfield any time Wes didn't play, someone doing the basics of getting on the ball in midfield

    I rather assumed that was the sticking point to begin with.

    Wikipedia says his height is 1.63m (5ft4in) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liam_K...%2C_born_1995)

    I know he is tiny but is that correct? If so, he must be one of the shortest to play the game professionally.

    Aye, the nippy corner forward that hit the post. :-)

    The Vancouver Whitecaps have a Uruguayan winger named Cristian Techera. Listed at 1.58 m (5’2), and you get the sense he’s actually closer to 5’0. Good little player though.

    Regarding Kelly he’s diminutive but sturdy. I was fairly impressed with his performance vs. Utd. Have been less impressed with his lukewarm comments about playing for Ireland.

    Didn't make the match-day squad for Reading's win over Forest at the weekend. Reading have brought in a couple of midfield loans so maybe Kelly will struggle for game time if the team keeps picking up points.

    Reports of interest from PEC Zwolle on the Netherlands in Kelly today. Their manager is Jaap Stam, who gave Kelly his break into first team formal at Reading

    Signed for Feyenoord.It’d be worth Mick giving him a shout to see if he fancies it.If not to at least be prepared for the inevitable questions from the journos. Seems like just the kind of player we’re short of.If he says no (or even ‘not now’), then at least we can move on and focus on someone like Crowley who I haven’t been keen on but to be honest, we desperately need.

    Kelly had his chance. He was called up and didn't turn up. In fact he didn't even answer his phone. No thanks. Crowley should be called up though.

    Who knows what went down between Kelly & O'Neill that time really. Something put him off anyway. I'd have no issue whatsoever bringing him back in if he's keen now that MON is gone.

    They had different versions of his reason for refusing the call up - https://www.the42.ie/liam-kelly-irel...60750-Apr2018/

    And then there was this from Stutts...

    I agree overall that you should turn up when you're called up, but I'd have no problem with Mick investigating for himself to see why he went cold on the idea. If nothing has changed, fine, but if it actually turns out that he had a semi-understandable reason and he's keen to rejoin, then I'd take him back in a heartbeat - if he's performing well of course.

    Haha cheers for the agent ratting on O'Neill.

    I think that his comments at the time were very open-ended. If he wants a call-up then he can clear the ambiguity up and I don't think it will be an issue amongst teammates or supporters.

    Yeah given O’Neill’s terrible handling of the Obafemi situation I think Mick should touch base with Kelly to see what the situation is.

    Hope the Ireland door opens

    Although Liam Kelly regularly played for the national youth teams of Ireland, he did not yet make his debut for The Boys in Green . "But maybe if I perform well at Feyenoord, that door will open," he says. "It would be a great honor and good for my development."
