    Spelling his name with a double-n should disqualify him straight away. Usurper.
    DID YOU NOTICE A SIGN OUTSIDE MY HOUSE...?

    Connor Ronan

    Not a bad write up. Plenty of room in Irish squad for an attacking midfielder! Wolves reporter from last night's game v Wigan
    ''Is this kid for real? Showed up some of his more senior team mates with his tenacity, desire and his quality in possession. Great technique, great energy and has the vision to back up his many attributes on the ball. Set pieces were, again, excellent and he swung a great free kick onto Edwards' head for the chance of the match. Looks about 12 but unleashed a rocket of a 30-yard screamer in the dying seconds that the keeper tipped over. Forget about the future, Connor Ronan is ready now. Not overawed at all. Three starts in a Wolves shirt and three 8/10s from this reporter. Keep it up Connor.'' 8/10

    John Fallon reports that the FA are keen on convincing Ronan to switch to England, although he does also reassure us that the player is "fully committed" to Ireland: http://www.independent.ie/sport/socc...-35455505.html

    England officials have enquired about Ronan's allegiance through intermediaries. However, the youngster is fully committed to Ireland and is due to play in next month's U-19 Euro elite qualifiers in Belgium.

    Have all of Madden's (numerous) under-age caps for the FAI been in non-competitive fixtures? If any of them were in competitive fixtures, in order to be now eligible for England, he would have to have possessed British nationality at the time he first represented the FAI competitively.

    Grealish never played for England before he played for Ireland though.

    Iceland squad with a carrot of going to a WC before he hits 20 if he keeps performing at Wolves. Protect the asset and see the colour of his intentions nice and early, put it to bed. (yes I know a friendly cap doesn't tie him DI )

    https://www.fai.ie/ireland/match/13/...417?tab=report this report has him on the bench. I was surprised he wasn't involved as we r so light in an attacking sense at that grade

    De Bruyne asked to swap his jersey the last night. Hopefully he gets some more appearances.

    I **** up all me pay,Watching footy on TV,
    Just feed me more VB,Just pour my beer,And get my smokes, And go away

    I don't think we have to worry about De Bruyne getting more appearances.
