    Jon Gallagher (DMF Atlanta b.1996)

    Went a little unnoticed this weekend, Gallagher was selected by Atlanta United in the MLS SuperDraft on Friday night: https://www.atlutd.com/post/2018/01/...mls-superdraft

    Short interview with him following his selection: https://www.atlutd.com/post/2018/01/...?autoplay=true
    All goals, yellow and red cards tweeted in real time on twitter and facebook

    What am I missing there? They state he's from Dundalk and is Irish but that he's played for England schoolboys?

    Tried watching the interview but he's developed such an American twang, I cant decipher if the underlying accent is English or Irish.

    EDIT: He went to boarding school in England at the age of 15 to further his footballing ambitions https://m.independent.ie/regionals/a...-36452304.html

    Sorry for multiple posts but doing a bit more reading on this. Atlanta have a lot of potential for Gallagher. Chris McCann is already at the club and they have Irish-American Michael Parkhurst too. Gerardo Martino is the manager- former manager of Barcelona and Argentina. Brad Guzan is there, as well as current Chile, Paraguay, Venezuela and Jamaica internationals and they splashed out big bucks on an 18 year old prospect from Argentina who was attracting lots of attention from Europe.

    All that said, it might be a tough side for Jon to break into!

    Just to compare to Atlanta's picks from the 2017 MLS SuperDraft, they selected Miles Robinson, Julian Gressel, Andrew Wheeler-Omiunu, and Alex Kapp.
    Robinson's spent most of his time on loan at Charleston Battery in the USL, Gressel played 35 times for Atlanta last season and scored six goals, Wheeler-Omiunu only appearad once and they decided not to sign Kapp - he ended up at Minnesota.
    So, while it's good news that Gallagher was selected, it's no indication of success.

    Gallagher named in the bench for Atlanta tonight against Colorado, think that's the first time he's been involved with the first team

    I've said it many times before, and Ole's post bears it out, America's MLS is a more than a suitable destination for young Irish prospects at a time when we keep looking for alternatives to the graveyard of Irish dreams, which is English football.

    Jon Gallagher was man of the match on his debut for Aberdeen in the Europa League tonight.

    Not a player I know a huge amount about but getting rave reviews from the Aberdeen fans this evening.

    LiveScore have him down as playing midfield. That's great to hear. You wouldn't know the standard he was playing at over there, nor that of RoPS but still positive.

    for aberdeen? i see he started in the europa league game but no mention of a goal or assist that i can see...

    edit: ok the bbc credit him with a couple of assists and describe his performance as excellent. he didn't score himself though it seems.

    Seems the second goal, from Cosgrave, was attributed to Gallagher then changed to Cosgrave

    Came off the bench for his first appearance for Atlanta last night in the MLS Is Back Tournament.
    Unfortunately, Atlanta have lost all three of their group games 1-0, and have been knocked out

    this guy is a serious talent. Are we gonna have a Hoolahan scenario part II? Last year he was a sensation at Aberdeen.

    we have to get players from everywhere not only Championship, which I think is not a good market its tough and a lot of pressure to go up, promoted to premier league the old englishn1st division.

    i prefer a guy who plays in a 1st division of a quality league rather than england's B division / championship.

    If this fellow Cullen goes to Anderlecht big move then
