I thought his knees were weak, arms were heavy but on the surface he looked calm and ready.

Two great goals innit. He should commemorate them with a tattoo on his neck.

In all seriousness, hopefully he keeps it up. He has far more potential than lads like Hogan, Keane and Robinson. Injuries permitting, with himself, Idah, Parrott, Ferguson, Ogbene and Obafemi knocking about, we have some decent options with good variety about them.

He clearly has a very strong relationship with Rosenior, so he has gotten really lucky that Rosenior has ended up at Hull and has taken him on. That couldn't have worked out much better for him after the way the previous loans went. I don't know whether another Championship team would have considered him, possibly not. And yet he was the standout player on the field yesterday. Still a long way to go but he looks fit and in form, has the fans onside already and a positive relationship with the manager. Really needs to take this chance now.

The way it is with Connolly is he certainly seems like he has the tools to be a very good player for us and in a top league. He could very well turn out to be a good news story in the end and that is what we all hope for.
I think that is also why many people get frustrated when it's not going well for him because we just him to push on so bad.

Seems to be a good match with the manager so really looking forward to see how it goes.

every genuine Irish supporter wants this lad to be the player we thought he could be. This seems one small step back to that. Hull manager & supporters really rate him; let’s see him repay that with games & goals for rest of season. Then who knows…he’s still a Brighton player, maybe their new manager will rate him. Either way a defo plus is all who have seen him play for hull talk about how hard he works, defo a good sign…

I agree with this, the fact that he accepted the u21 call and the way he went about it seems to contradict the theory of him only being concerned about his tat stats etc

He's been living in England for 7 years, since he was a 16 year old. And that's without even getting into the fact that you would have to be unaware of what an English person actually sounds like to mistake his accent as genuinely English. The whole critism is just stupid, irrelevant, and tiresome anyway.

Yeah, his failure to fulfill his potential really means he deserved the absolute crap about his appearance and accent he gets on here.

100%. Rooting for him as we are in desperate need of a creative spark up the top end of the pitch. Some of the fanboys on here are embarrassing with the carry on
