    The award is voted on by the soccer writers association of Ireland, not the FAI. Refuse to award it to him, or cancel the award, and every headline in the morning is "FAI refuse to honour soccer writer's decision". Award it to the second placed player (say Obafemi) and the player knows he's won it more or less by default.

    i agree with richard dunnes angle...

    "if the games he played aren’t important enough to make him qualify for Ireland then I think the voting should only be done on qualifiers,"

    It's not really like that. At all.
    then every paper will have a story about how the FAI asked journalists to vote for the young player of the year, then didn't award it.

    Simple solution: Rice can decline the award through his agent. If he has a shred of integrity it's the only thing to do. No journos snubbed, no boos at the award ceremony, no other player being offered it knowing they were second place by a long distance. Probably no lessons learned by the FAI but what's new, hey?
    Hello, hello? What's going on? What's all this shouting, we'll have no trouble here!

    My point is, is that his candidacy is no long suitable and therefore should have withdrawn. They either revote or hand who came 2nd the award

    The vote was taken before he changed his allegiance. According Neil Riordan on Twitter, it was mid January, and five journalists were polled for their votes, so the result would have been known between them.

    What does it say to whoever came second, "you weren't as godo as Rice, but he's not here, so have a trophy"

    Once he switched to England he should automatically have been disqualified. It is completely mind boggling stuff to give a player who has just been called up to the England senior squad today, the Irish young player of the year award. If it is not team 33 requests, then it is this kind of silly stuff from the FAI. They are an embarrassment.

    Let me break this baby down for you
    (A) Young (B) Irish ( C) Player of the year

    So you need to tick 3 boxes

    A) Young
    B) Be Irish
    C) And a good player

    Declan Rice ticks 2 boxes

    So does Paul McGrath and Seamus Coleman

    Why not give it to one of them?. I will tell you why ….because they don’t qualify

    sundays awards are going to be a farce.
    I wouldn't envy the tv presenters having to keep a straight face as they announce the winner and then have to say ".... declan couldn't be with us tonight as he is currently preparing for his first cap for England.... "

    No I didn't man. My first post was this:
    "if Michael Jackson is up for "Baby sitter of the year award" you drop it , you don't continue"
    As of circa a month ago we know Declan Rice is not Irish

    Such a statement he only said it to show support for his team mates sure all them Irish are ra heads. This lad is incapable of taking responsibility for his actions. He will have to wear a poppy all year round to make up for this

    Doesn't take long for the Brit media to turn on their own - I doubt it would have happened if he'd stayed with us. He may have to get used to more of the same.

    Spot on. Said the same thing to another group earlier. Chucking his provo Irish teammates under the bus to deflect attention away from his words. If you decide to go with “Up the ‘ra” then you own it. Complete w@nker.
