    Didn't Robbie Ryan at least get to play in a FA Cup Final?

    Michael Cummins was at Port Vale for ages, now at Darlington.

    David Worrell is at Dundee.

    Yep. Look at the argentinian side. Amazing level of players.

    I'm 1000% convinced that several of the Irish players were good enough for top level football but the lack of strong league here hindered them. That and Brian Kerr is s afootball genius

    Derek O'Connor is still in England but not playing anymore from what i heard... Grew up in the Ballyfermot too. Nice guy. Shame it didn't work out for him..
    I pity the fool!.... But suggest ways that he might improve himself.

    Yep Riquelme ran the show. Player of tournament. Subsequent tournaments unearthed Saviola, Tevez, Cambiasso, Messi, Rodrigez, Mascherano, Samuel and so on. No wonder they've won it 6 or 7 times.

    Hawkins, Molloy and Tommy Morgan were released from their clubs while that tournament was on and were snapped up by Pats. Third best team in the world and they get released. Strange. Says alot about English football.

    They havent proven the clubs wrong have they. I think that team was exceptionally well managed by a world class manager in the way Greece were. The players were average (with the exception of Duff)

    Well Coventry signed Hawkins last year... Morgan and Hawkins were released before it, and signed by pats after it. Molloy was actually signed by Pats (from Athlone) before the thng started
