    Six goals in nine games for Johnston.

    Interestingly the same number as Idah had scored in the first six months of the Championship season before swapping divisions with him.

    Saw a Celtic fan on Twitter saying that Johnston's form proves that Celtic would walk the Championship seemingly without any consideration of how Idah's move from third pick at Norwich to star man at Celtic might impinge on that argument somewhat.

    Love the fact that the defender so clearly showed him the outside and told him have at it. So he did. So he did.

    A truly exciting player to watch.

    All credit to Mr Kenny for bringing him aboard.

    Given that Ogbene would likely have come through anyway, bringing Johnston in may end up being the main (only?) positive of Kenny's time in charge.

    Genuinely think if Ogbene doesn’t get chased by Kenny and called up when he did, he wouldn’t be a premier league player now. He grew with the performances against Portugal, Belgium, France etc.

    He also gave Luton the belief that he was Premier League player

    Yeah, if you took club and international in isolation then I think Kenny called Ogbene up too early in his club arc. However, his development looked to be supercharged by the international exposure and I think that sees his club arc climbing at a faster trajectory than it would or could have had he not been called up. I have to argue that Kenny showed serious conviction there. He also threw him in against Hungary in a fairly toxic environment which could have backfired but Kenny must have trusted the character and rightly so.

    I'm not saying Kenny was a great or good manager - I am saying that he showed serious judgement and conviction over Ogbene and Johnston in a way that he didn't always show during his tenure.

    I don't know. Ogbene didn't make much noise about wanting to play for Ireland. Kenny wanted to sign Ogbene before he left Limerick. I'd say Kenny reached out to Ogbene about Ireland.

    Ogbene has been honest in saying that Nigeria were his first choice. But would he even get a Nigeria call up now, playing down at the bottom of the Premier League? Would agree Kenny sped the process along for him alright. He wasn't up to the job as manager but he did seem to have an eye for a winger to be fair to him.

    You generally need a lot of patience to see Irish players score.

    Yes, he would get a Nigeria call up now. They have Osho of Luton in there and Championship players.
