    Delighted for okoflex . Pretty good front 4 from this victory shield squad https://www.fai.ie/ireland/news/osam...victory-shield I remember thinking that festy was a bit small back then but he sure has developed physically

    Crystal Palace have signed Jake O'Brien permanently from Cork City following his initial loan set up. He's a 20 year old CB.

    - https://www.rte.ie/sport/soccer/2021...ermanent-deal/

    He marked the occasion by scoring V Leeds in the PL2 fixture earlier, had a 35 yard effort tipped over & was booked.

    - https://www.cpfc.co.uk/news/match-re...gn/2021-08-16/


    Palace U23s had a new manager in his first game for this one, Paddy McCarthy, the ex Man City / Leicester & Palace player, also a CB himself.

    Dammit, I thought the U23s were starting next weekend - that's outstanding from all 3.

    Elsewhere, Evan Ferguson scored Brighton's second against Derby, James Furlong got two assists and two yellow cards while Andrew Moran... er... put one of the Derby players on to a stretcher. Oh, and that's where Jayson Molumby is. Eiran Cashin captained the Rams: https://www.brightonandhovealbion.co...y-win-at-derby

    Jake O'Brien celebrated his permanent transfer from Cork City by captaining Crystal Palace's U23s in their defeat to Leeds and scoring: https://www.cpfc.co.uk/news/match-re...gn/2021-08-16/

    A new name at Norwich: Tony Springett contributed an assist in their 3-0 win over Southampton. Josh Giurgi played 70 minutes: https://www.canaries.co.uk/News/2021...v-southampton/

    Paul McShane is registered as an overage player for Manchester United U23s, and played for them at the weekend against Leicester: https://www.manutd.com/en/news/detai...ue-2-15-august
    Defender Paul McShane was welcomed back to our competitive fold in his capacity as a player-coach and striker Mellor was also back after long spell out through injury.

    Awful to see Molumby stuck back at this level. Hopefully just a short term thing but he could really do with a permanent move away from Brighton before the transfer window closes. May well be available for less than Ł1m at this point, surely he would be a bargain signing for a number of Championship teams.

    I read last night- probably on Twitter, that he’s going on loan/permanent transfer to the championship. Millwall were suggested, but that just seemed like a lazy/hollow suggestion.
    Here they come! It’s the charge of the “Thanks” Brigade!

    What's the story with Oko-Flex nowadays?

    He's eligible for Nigeria & Ireland, but isn't for England because he moved to Celtic in 2018 - have I that right?

    Tyreik Wright has joined Salford in League Two on loan. I'd have hope he could have earned a loan to a League One side maybe but he's still young: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E71VrlLBEPY

    A strong start to the season for our under 23 players overall. Parrott and Bazunu were the headline performances tonight, but Luke McNally and Peter Kioso are two other, lower profile, players that played well and are making a positive impression at Luton and Oxford respectively.

    Seems like there are standout performances from young Irish players in every round of games again, after a bit of a fall off last season.

    Round-up for tonight:

    Goals for Odubeko and Ferguson, from the spot, as Brighton beat West Ham 4-2. Molumby and Okoflex also played but, interestingly, Coventry did not: https://www.premierleague.com/match/...ion-v-west-ham

    Mazeed Ogungbo credited with an assist for Arsenal against Palace. Jake O'Brien and Tayo Adaramola lined out for the Eagles - for some reason there's a Northern Ireland flag by Adaramola's name: https://www.premierleague.com/match/...crystal-palace

    George Nunn Played the first hour for Chelsea against Man United: https://www.premierleague.com/match/...-v-man-utd-u23

    Gary Dicker played for Brighton in that game too, he's registered as an overage player while he does his coaching badges with them, same as McShane at Man United

    That is two in two for Ferguson and he doesn't turn 17 until October.

    I also see that Cyrus Christie lined out for Fulham's under 23 side, along with 18 year old Oliver O'Neill who seems to be getting his game there regularly. Zak Delaney started for West Brom in the same match. I assume Christie is actively seeking a new club.

    Ferguson and Moran made their debuts for Brighton while Jay Furlong was an unused sub.

    Moran aged 17, Ferguson age 16.

    Certainly could be the lads who Crawford talked about being U19 eligible and called up to the 21s

    Quiet night tonight - only the one goalscorer - Tony Springett for Norwich against Sunderland: https://www.premierleague.com/match/...land-v-norwich

    Two new names cropped up in the Midlands derby - Kevin Joshua played the first 74 minutes for West Brom, while Tommy Fogarty came on for Birmingham two minutes later - anybody know anything about them? https://www.premierleague.com/match/...m-v-birmingham

    On the under 23 scene, Oliver O'Neill of Fulham that was called up to the under 21 side- anyone know anything about the basis for the call up? Has he been ripping it up at that level or another level for Ireland? I just ask because I hear a lot about Moran and Ferguson but I've heard little about him but the name.
