    He played football, consistently, under several managers, at the top level of the game.

    But youngirish on foot.ie is right, and all the managers are wrong.

    Stephen Ward was no star. But he made the most of his talent and was a good servant for the Irish team. It makes no sense to slam him. If anyone has been comparing him to the all time greats on this forum, that’s news to me.

    Yeah, this sort of pub talk is very boring and the sort of thing that makes you not want to bother.

    Personally I didn’t rate Wardy, particularly the last few years (as an international footballer). Made mistakes which cost us qualifying for the World Cup and probably was rewarded for the game against Germany. Was pretty vocal that I would have played Brady in the 2016 campaign and Stevens in the 2018 campaign- but at the same time, fair play to him. Seems like a decent skin and was probably a good to very good championship player earlier in his career.

    Leaving Premier League club after 8 years paying off for Ireland underage starlet https://the42.ie/5325097

    Decent interview on the 42. They even cover his England underage call up which deals with quite well.

    Very interesting interview and he's unlikely to be too far away from a senior call up either. Was unlucky with the under 21s that he came through in the same campaign as Connolly, Idah and Parrott but he got his chance in the end after others moved to the senior squad.

    Still only 21 and can play a few different positions in Kenny's system. Well worth a look, although unless we get another bad run with Covid I wouldn't expect to see him as soon as the March games.

    March is all competitive games, right? So, yeah, he probably needs a bit of luck with injuries/covid drop-outs, but he'll be on Kenny's radar.
    Covid-negative, maybe; I haven't checked.

    Scored today again. Another fox-in-the-box goal.

    That's ten in his first full season of senior football and four in his last six games... and it's only January... and the season started late. It is still at League One level so I would still have those playing Premier League and Championship football ahead of him but if Lincoln go up and he carries this form forward to next season, then perhaps a run-out in an Autumn friendly might be in order.
