    And all of a sudden, Shodipo becomes one to watch, now playing at the same level as Byrne, Hoolahan, Hendrick, Brady, O'Dowda, Judge, Browne, Duffy, Stokes, Westwood and D. Lenihan, while still being only just nineteen. And Hasselbaink seems to rate him, emphasising a few weeks ago that he has no plans to send him out on loan as he is part of his plans for the new season - call him up, MON!

    This is it
    So rarely the one you'd hang your hat on underage makes that final step up, often makes me wonder how many lads culled at academy level would have been ok longer term.

    ...and how / why / by whom our underage selections are made.

    Goal.com's report describes him as a "Nigerian starlet", then go on to say he was born in Dublin and represented the Republic at underage level.

    I'd say it might be worth our while sending MON to have a chat with him...although come to think of it, those chats have had mixed results at best. But seriously, the management team should let him know that if he continues to progress he will be picked and then if he does continue to progress, go ahead and pick him - that simple, no messing about. If he wants to play for us, terrific, but if he feels the pull of the land of his forefathers, then that's something all Irish sports fans should certainly empathise with.

    Does this not count ? http://www.fai.ie/ireland/player/888842374
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    The new Jack Grealish. Ye couldn't really blame this lad if he changed to England or Nigeria.

    It kinda depnds what age he was when he moved to England. fair play on them finding out about him.

    Excuse my ignorance, but is this bloke ours to lose, are we in a three way chase for him, or are people just being paranoid after the above mentioned dirty, rotten turncoat's behaviour ?

    little of all three. He's only played underage football for Ireland, at least that I can find. There's no mention of him on the Nigerian FA's site, so right now he's ours. Having said that he is eligible, and his parents are Nigerian, so there's a strong link there. It's rare that an Irish underage player ends up playing senior international football for another country, and rarer still that it's one ranked ahead of us, but since Grealish changed allegiances so recently, it's fresh in people's minds and probably playing on insecurities.
    He's had one game at senior club level, and for now is still an Irish international, let's just enjoy that for the moment.

    He's likely to be in the next u21 squad - the FAI are aware and have been tracking him. I believe Nigeria expressed an interest but it was never reciprocated and as far as I know there hasn't been any contact from England.

    I think lone links without any accompanying intro or summary are really annoying!

    Does that mean you can't access Facebook at work?

    It's just a quote from Shodipo under a picture of him playing for Ireland-

    I was born in Leixlip and still visit my relations in Ireland, it makes me and my family proud to wear the Irish jersey.
