*knee-jerk reaction alert*
from the first 2 mins of the clip above hes a clearly better overall baller than murphy or mcgoldrick. i know anybody can make a youtube vid to look like the next best thing but at least he looks happy to have the ball and not panic and hoofing it away at any given opportunity. well able to shoot from distance as well. drops back an awful lot to come collect and puts in fair share of donkey work! could be a serious handful. give him a run over the next 2 friendlies and if he produces in any form, stick him on the plane 

If he didnt have a chance of grabbing a place in the squad, he wouldnt have been included....

He won't be competing with Murphy and McGoldrick though, he is an out and out winger.
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.

Makes sense as to why he seemed to be playing deeper than I'd expected! Should have checked that out!
In my head I count Walters as a forward as opposed to a midfielder is kind of where i was going with that re mcgoldrick/murphy regardless so we'd still technically have 4 attackers

Anytime I've seen him he has reminded me of a more technical version of McClean. Bit of a strange decision considering the level that he currently plays at and the fact he spends a bit of time on the bench. Been the stand out player for most of the 21's games I've seen him involved in though.

Thought he was Ireland's stand out player for the 21s in the last campaign, unlucky missing out on player of the year to Browne.

I wonder if the reason he was bumped up the list ahead of the likes of Byrne and Browne is because the England Under-21's were sniffing around?
We're decent enough..

Think it is more to do with him offering us something different on the left wing to be honest. Think he is further along in his development than Byrne is too, is more physical etc. Browne is unlucky that we have so many midfielders at the moment.

A lot of people are getting carried away about this kid . Saying that the top clubs in the premier league are sniffing round him which is just media hearsay . The fact he is twenty years old and is still playing in league two  . He also has tenuous connections with ireland and has only declared for us as he knows he isn't good enough for England.

You are not living in reality if you think this kid wouldn't jump at the chance of playing for England if he got the opportunity I have only seen clips him on youtube but he looks like another mcgeady to me . His crossing is poor . Its also very difficult to judge how good a player is when he is playing against essentially pub players .

How good do you think this kid can be , because it seems to me that a lot of people think this kid is the next Damien Duff.  Some are even making comparisons with Delle Ali . Ali was ripping up league 2 . This kid has been on the bench most of the season . You would swear he was the star of the team they way people here are talking about him here .

He spends most of the time on the bench in league 2 and people on this board are getting excited about him . Jesus wept. LOL

ClapClap
The amount of clowns on the news report of the Squad announcement on the RTE site saying the same thing is unbelievable.
Where`s Jack Byrne?, Whys this fella in the squad?, Never heard of him, He`s a league 2 player etc etc

He scored the goal that saw Oxford promoted to League 1 a few days ago so he's a League 1 player now. I don't think he'll be leaving there this Summer and a year or two in that league will do him the world of good. There's no need to be getting carried away with him or dismissing him at this stage
