Whether Aiden will see any game time or not is probably unlikely "but" it's really refreshing to see players like himself being in the squad.

I'm a firm believer that having new blood in squads will freshen it up no end and will help limit complacency with many players knowing that no matter how poorly they've performed that they will always be in the squad. 

Suddenly the emergence of Maguire, Hogan and O'Brien has shaken up our attacking options, Andy Boyle and Daryl Hogan the same, not to forget young lads like O'Hara, Rice etc possibly making full squads in the near future.

Love that. Have afew mates ive met in uni and theyre all birmingham irish. Always discuss if they would ever considered declaring fot the english and they said not a chance haha. Not that they even got to that level. Good to see tho people properly proud of their heritage. Any chance you can link where ya read this?

This lad is the real deal 'I'm Irish...' no bullsh*t with agents etc, just straight in.
 
Very refreshing.

Recovered from his ankle injury sufficiently to be named on the bench for this afternoon's match away to Barnsley.

Gets off the mark for the season with a goal vs Boro.

He’s only 24 so is another option for us in attack.

I don't think O'Neill likes him, he left him out recently and picked players who never start for their club side ahead of him.

Comes on as a sub and scores an 89th minute winner for Millwall tonight. Shaun Williams scored a peno for them too

He’s 24/25 and has a decent goal scoring record in the Championship. He’s also able to play on the wing or upfront. We’re desperate and could do worse than give him a chance.

He's been in and around the squad for a while now without getting a game. Would like to see him get some sort of game time in the Poland game anyway, to hopefully give us a better idea as to whether he's up to it or not

not to be judgemental but he really is not good enough, league one standard and average at that. I know this is crazy talk but why not call up young talent like parrot or idoha not to see what they are like but to give Them confidence. What harm would it cause giving them 20 minutes as a sub against Poland, it would also get us fans excited about the future of Irish players.

Has always played well when I've watched him and has a useful scoring record, it's nonsense to say he doesn't deserve to be in and around the squad.
We're decent enough..

i had a look at what the milwall supporters think of him and it does not make for good reading. the majority of them seem to think he aint up to it.

I would echo Adobolo's thoughts above, unfortunately. A very limited player.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.
