    The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist thinks it will change; the realist adjusts the sails.

    Surely then the headline should read Pot of Gold not Shock of Gold?

    Thanks Fox, I see from that, he's eligible on both counts, blood and adopted, a double eligibility.
    Good to see a player just go ahead and get his passport sorted out without having to be asked.

    Can't see Keane, Doyle, Long, Stokes, Walters or Cox being dropped for Serbia to accommodate McGoldrick.

    I would have said Cox a few months ago but he's playing at a good level at the moment.

    Penny for the thoughts of Daryl Murphy.

    Just saw this comment on McGoldrick's Wikipedia page , so it must be true! It got me thinking about how many of our current group of strikers have got real pace? TBH, and I know I will be quickly corrected, but none stand out as having this quality which might mean McGoldrick offers something different.

    "He's got pace, he can get in behind defenders and can run all day. He's skilful and he's got all the attributes."

    I was thinking the same - how many footballers actually have their heads screwed on enough to say
    'I'll sort the paperwork and see if they want to call me up'?

    Using the (patent pending), Stutts test, he's passed the first hurdle for me: He obviously has an interest in his heritage.

    Going only on interviews I've read with Murphy, I'd say he was probably encouraging him to declare, much like Dunne encouraged Clark to declare.

    He's from Tipperary and plays with the Tigers.

    Ouch! TBH, while Long has many great qualities like his positional play and anticipation, I never thought he had great pace, but I will accept your point of view!

    Yep, he's quick and an all round super athlete. Great leap on him too.

    Of course - I mean he's an in-form striker hitting his peak, who just confirmed his eligibility for us - it was inevitable he'd get injured
    On a serious note, he's due to be fit in ten weeks, so we might as well ask the question: should he get a run-out in the summer internationals?

    I'd worry about people getting so upset about a 26 year old Championship striker getting injured, who's never proven himself at a high enough level, and with absolutely zero international experience.

    Had completely forgotten about McGoldrick's teammate at Ipswich, Luke Chambers, being eligible for us. Remains unselected (like Richard Stearman, unlike Alex Pearce). Worth a call-up at all?

    Being linked with a 8 million quid move to Leicester. Would be good for him and us if he gained some Premiership experience.

    Left out of the Ipswich team yesterday and McCarthy has admitted that there is interest.
