    ‘It will be good for my development’

    WTF??? It should be the greatest honour of your life to pull on the green jersey, not ‘good for your development’.
    He has to suck up big-time to the fans if he accepts a call-up imo

    I doubt he’s meaning anything negative by it and it’s objectively true. I’ll be hoping for his success at club level in the Netherlands and would like to see Mick give him a chance at some stage.

    That's a bit harsh - he did say it would be an honour.

    The full quote is "It would be a great honor and good for my development."

    He only said 'a great honour' though, not 'the greatest honour'. Unacceptable.

    He also said (in the full piece)...

    "I like to play aggressively, put pressure, quickly win back the ball. I don't shy away from tackles. The Irish mentality, our mentality of fighting to death, working for the emblem. That is in my blood."


    I'm sold anyway. But we need a Stutts gut test on this...

    Liam Kelly hoping Feyenoord form will earn him an Ireland senior call-up https://the42.ie/4718551

    The 42 have jumped on this one- must have spies here.

    Good spot on the other quote too, Del.

    I think we need to remember he hasn't played since February and could have easily ended up at PEC Zwolle if Stam hadn't stayed there. But if he starts to get games and show form then there's no reason why he doesn't deserve a call-up.

    He could have said ; Your Honour , I will play for Ireland if you make me .

    Didn’t lads sometimes ‘join ‘ the Army to avoid lockup back in the day .

    Hes saying all the right things, but after not playing football for the best part of last season he needs to get that right first before he gets called in.

    Ive been impressed with him any time Ive seen him so hopefully it works out.

    I get the feeling that he and Crowley are more likely to be capped under Kenny than Mick though.

    Mick has no time to be fair. For some reason, just a gut feeling, I'm much more hopeful that Kelly could be a useful/important player for us at some stage than Crowley.

    Starts their friendly against Salzburg shortly too. It's on that Arena Sports channel for anybody who has Mobdro or the likes.

    Neil O'Riordan suggesting in an article today that the call up issue with Kelly was down to an issue with MON rather than a reluctance to play for Ireland. Kelly says he's ready to play if called up. Might be time to start fresh with this lad and give him a run in one of the friendlies if he starts the season well in the Netherlands. We could use a creative sort behind McGoldrick that would allow Robinson to play in a wider position.

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

    That's enough for me. I think the slate is clean. It wouldn't be the first or last time O'Neill caused trouble with a player.

    If true, he has shown a lot of restraint and composure under these circumstances

    Mon said he was waiting for England after Kelly turned down the call. Even if ONeill is a mythomaniac. Kelly is the one who no showed

    But there may have been another mitigating circumstance i.e. "a personal reason between me and my family." I don't think he needs to go any further but I do understand why it may not be sufficient for others' thresholds.

    Looks like the whole "he's waiting for England" thing may have been a MON fantasy. He sure threw the young lad under the bus if that turns out to be a baseless statement.
