    Once again I have been proved right. Its annoying at times how naive and blind people can be.

    I knew well this was not clear cut. pick him for the wales game, if he is not that bothered then feck him over. dont like that attitude. At 16 you are well old enough to know who you want to be playing for and how proud you are to be from - whether COB or otherwise...

    ya but they didnt do their usual a source they quoted the lad himself and he is basically saying "come and get me". Anyhow I dont care at this stage, im just saying people shouldn't be so quick to assume and say case closed etc...thats not to say he still wont be turning out for our seniors!

    NO, unlike you I personally don't look out for these things.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they twisted his words tbh.

    exactly. Well said.

    The same paper now has an article on how McGeady might be regretting declaring for Ireland now that Scotland have a chance of making Euro 2008.

    Have you seen the piece on youtube with McGeady wearing his Irish shirt as a kid and his dad explaining that there was simply never any option other than him playing for Ireland? Well done Aiden's dad!

    Yeah they've had it on TV3 2 or 3 times.

    Anyway, that's an excellent win for U18s after losing the previous match 4-0. McCarthy played up front which is odd but scoring a brace makes it not so odd.

But you're all stuck on your barstools watching Dunphy and worshipping Man Utd and Chelsea.

    exactly. though in all seriousness, the only reason anyone in that position would ever declare for the other country is future international qualification prospects. Go on, deny it. When McGeady chose, Ireland were twice the team Scotland were.
    Superdave to the resc....

    Dunno about that. 4 years ago we would have been pretty much the same level with the same prospects for qualifying for tournaments.

    According to his wikipedia profile - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aiden_McGeady - he played for the U-15 schoolboy team, since he was born in 1986, so that would have been about 2000/2001
    At that stage, ourselves and Scotland had just missed out on Euro 2000, Ireland after drawing with Turkey, Scotland after losing out to England, despite beating them at home.
    Ireland hadn't qualified for a senior international tournament in more than 6 years, and Scotland had last failed to qualify in USA '94.

    That picture of him on utube playing in an Irish shirt was at a time when Scotland were competing in the finals in France & we were back home.

    Still, no reason to let the truth get in the way of prejudice.

    Any mention of his changing allegiances?
