    Callum Robinson

    Considering he has officially declared his desire to play for us, I thought that Callum Robinson should have a thread (if he doesn't already), especially as he just scored two goals against QPR to keep himself and the rest of the Irish contingent at Preston in with a shout at the playoffs: http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/43677848

    Iwelumo picked him out last night on on the C5 Championship show, as a very good and improving player, says he has added 7 assists to his goals total this year.

    You know when some fans say sarcastically that the plane to England magically makes LOI players better when they get an international call-up shortly after a transfer to a Championship side? Well it appears that declaring for Ireland has magically made Callum Robinson a better goalscorer - only scored four up to the start of March when he announced his intention to play for us and grabbed his fourth goal since than yesterday: https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/43938856. O'Neill has said he is considering him for a call-up: https://www.independent.ie/sport/soc...-36864889.html. O'Neill also seems impressed that Robinson made the choice to represent us himself without having to be recruited:

    "At least he, without coaxing wants to come and play. So you know, I always think that's a half-decent step if the player wants to come in."

    His paperwork hasn't gone through yet.

    Scored tonight against Middlesbrough in the EFL Cup, although Preston went out on penalties: https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/45555896. Starting to put a little run together as this was his third goal in four games. Hopefully this will continue

    Grabbed his fifth of the season and fourth in seven games for Preston today - I think he got another at the end of the game also - the body of the BBC report credits it to him, but the headline lists Preston's fourth as an own goal. https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/45688424 - starting to look like a potentially very good recruit: if he and Maguire can start scoring for us, our post-Keane/Doyle/Walters striker crisis would definitely be eased significantly and we will hopefully be alright until we see if Connolly, McAuley, Idah, Obafemi, Cassidy, Parrott etc. can deliver on their early promise

    Sixth and seventh of the season for Robinson as Preston beat Brentford 4-3: https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/45885162#tab-0. He's really motoring now. And Maguire came on as a late sub. I think they should both start against the North and maybe against Denmark, maybe bringing Long on as a second-half impact sub.

    Alan Browne scored the opener for Preston. I would be very keen on seeing him getting a shot in one of those games.

    This was posted in the Keith Treacy thread as Keith was interviewed by Keith Andrews after Callum.

    Callum said he has wanted to represent Ireland since he was under 15 (or 16?) But they couldn't prove his eligibility at the time and it was put on the long finger. The issue was that his Monaghan grandmother died young, when his mother was 9, and his grandfather re-married and so they had an issue proving her birth and it wasn't followed up on. Fast forward to now and he said he's spent the last few years wanting to claim and the Irish mafia in Preston and a mate called Fads (Ciaran Fadden I think, set up the interview also) pushed him to get it over the line.

    Didn't know that - I thought he had just started to think about it in the last year or so with all the Irish lads around him and made his decision earlier this year, which is absolutely fine, especially as he declared for us and stuck to that decision without any need to be chased or without any guarantees of international football. But knowing he wanted to come on board as a teenager just makes me like him more, especially as he speaks with such enthusiasm about playing for Ireland in a difficult transitional phase. So here's hoping he continues his good form this season and makes a goalscoring breakthrough for us soon - then between him, Maguire, Long (maybe Hogan and O'Brien), our forward options will be decent enough for us to have a reasonable chance when the qualifiers roll around.

    strange alright the silence on mcgoldricks absence as he has had fine start at Sheff Utd. Was very poor that night we won in Austria when he came on dived in with lazy challenge that set up Janko for his late chance which he should have buried

    Nope. He name-checked Mark O'Toole and all as someone who was involved in the process with him at that age.

    Another goal for Robinson today, his ninth of the season - hopefully he can carry this form into the Euro qualifiers: https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/46244064

    Of course he did... shouldn't have declared for us - we know that being an Irish forward is hazardous to your health.

    Apparently C R is attracting interest, despite his hamstring injury: https://www.lep.co.uk/sport/football...ence-1-9473669
