    Jamie O'Hara

    He has just started for Spurs in their derby and he looks an outstanding prospect. I have not seen such a confident kid looking to get on the ball not afraid to take on long balls in a long time WHO CAN PLAY FOR IRELAND. The FAI need to act now to secure his services.

    It tells you something if Ramos sees that he is so good that he can play in a massive derby against Arsenal. He is playing in midfield but can apparently play on the wing as well.

    I say we need to pick him in the squad against Brazil. This guy looks the real deal - touch wood, hopefully not another Willo Flood. Plays a bit like Andy Reid, hopefully not as injury prone though.

    Since he has already played for England I'd rather he stuck with them tbh.

    I have heard that he has an irish grandparent, and as he is u21, would be likely called up for our next u21 game, ironically V England! He hasn't played for England for 3 years, and never competitively, so can be in our next squad. Seeing as we have lost Douglas, A. Reid already, midfield options are slimming for us. If he plays weekly over next 2 months, he'd be worth calling up!!

    James McCarthy should also be in Brazil squad!!

    I agree. Nobody should have to be presuaded to play for Ireland.

    Having said that, he was the highlight for Spurs today. Especially in the 1st half.

    Looks great, but if he wants to play for England, he wants to play for England. All the eligibility in the world counts for nowt if he doesn't want to wear green. His prerogative.
    On the way into the stadium, an elderly San Marino Steward waved us in and said "Tonight, may the best team win"

    And they nearly did.

    One game.

    Tell all the Bohs you know
    that we've gone and won two-in-a-row
    and it's not gonna be three
    and it's not gonna be four
    it's more likely to be 5-1.

    Never mind about O'Hara, if we're going to start calling Scottish First Division players up, then we might as well call up I P Freely who plays for Ballynabog in the Craggy Island Senior Citizens league.

    Who said he wants to play for England rather than us?? Unless he is approached, we will never know.

    I'd rather see James McC called up for a Friendly, instead of seeing a Kilbane/Carsley player in there instead. Use Friendlies to look to the future, and for that reason, we could look at James McC

    Jamie Darryl O'Hara (born September 25, 1986 in Dartford, England) is an English footballer who is contracted as a central midfielder for Tottenham Hotspur. He regularly features in the reserve team as well as the Under-18's.

    Has played for England at Under 16, Under 17 and Under 18 levels..
    Just seems like he's pretty comfortable where he is, that's all.

    An Eircom League team beat a Scottish first division team 5-1 last year in the UEFA cup. surely we should be looking a promising EL young players first?

    I would agree with you if Barcelona, Liverpool etc were looking to sign him. Anyway I think its a bit too early for Mc Carthy to be called up to the senior squad, Let him progress through the ranks and not put too much pressure on him by calling him up to the squad.

    A lad who i went to uni with was doing a sports course and used to help with the youth/reserve training at spurs (probably carrying the cones abit like stan) but nevertheless i asked him what he thought of them lads( O'Hara, Dixon, Yeates)

    He said 1) Yeates wouldn't make it there
    2) Dixon could be the next rooney and was massively thought of
    3) O'Hara ain't irish!

    also i would have thought Keane would have persuaded him by now if it could be done.

    How was his passing atrocious??? His passing was magnificent in the first half. Joe Gamble wouldn't make the Spurs reserves, don't mind start in their most hyped game of the season. Don't know where your getting this from.

    He mightn't be Irish but according to the papers he is eligible and wants to play for us
