    Still not good enough for Irish underage squads though. Another laughable situation.

    UEFA have listed Dennis Cirken's nationality as Irish on Tottenham's squad page for the UEFA Youth League: https://www.uefa.com/uefayouthleague...183/index.html
    Probably a mistake by them, can't find any mention of him being qualified

    Ryan Johansson no longer wants to play for us and has instead opted to stick with Luxembourg for the moment. Losing far too many now. Something must really stink within the FAI setup.

    The full article can be read here - https://www.independent.ie/sport/soc...-37383458.html

    It would seem a pretty sensible decision from his point of view, for now at least. I don't think it necessarily implies he thinks the Irish setup stinks.

    Johansson has already played competitive underage football for Luxembourg. Therefore, if he then switched to play competitive underage football for another country, he would be bound to that nation for the rest of his career.

    Aaron Connolly played for Brighton tonight away v Peterborough in the Checkatrade Trophy, he started and scored at 0-2 down with twenty minutes left to make it 2-1. It ended up going to penalties and he scored the fifth and final kick for his side to win the shoot out 5-4.

    Little bit of news from a quiet weekend of U23 action... it appears Irish interest in Ipswich hasn't ended completely yet - Shane McLoughlin got a brace in their 2-2 draw with QPR: https://www.itfc.co.uk/news/2018/october/u23s-qpr-draw/

    OK, let's try to cheer everybody up after the misery of the last seven days - it's been an excellent evening for Irish players in English U23 teams:

    Aaron Connolly kept his recent goalscoring form going, nabbing Brighton's equaliser in a 2-1 victory over Blackburn, his seventh in eight games for his club: https://www.premierleague.com/match/...on-v-blackburn

    Michael Obafemi got back on the goal trail with his fifth in nine games, opening the scoring for Southampton against Wolves. Thomas O'Connor, who captained the team, scored the injury-time winner while Aaron o'Driscoll and Will Smallbone also played: https://www.premierleague.com/match/...mpton-v-wolves

    Josh Barrett grabbed a brace for Reading as they beat Middlesbrough 3-2: https://www.premierleague.com/match/...ough-v-reading

    Ryan Cassidy didn't score, but was credited with an assist as Watford beat Bristol City 4-0: https://www.watfordfc.com/teams/unde...0-bristol-city

    Gerry McDonagh also got an assist for Barnsley in a 4-1 defeat at the hands of Leeds, who had Callum Nicell in their line-up: https://www.leedsunited.com/news/aca...s-leeds-united

    Adam Idah scored twice for Norwich U23s - unfortunately Stoke scored seven: https://www.premierleague.com/match/...toke-v-norwich. So four of our young strikers on target this weekend (Connolly, Obafemi, Parrott and Idah), with six goals between them, with O'Connor and Barrett adding three between them.

    Hopefully Idah and Obafemi get a chance. My fear is that Obafemi won't at Southampton now. despite their lack of goals as a club they still won't invest in giving youth a chance - stakes are too high. If they rated him he'd surely be playing already.

    Idah just needs Jordan rhodes to lose form and he may get a chance. the rest of their strikers don't look amazing.


    anyone care to comment on Simon Power? I haven't seen him play.
