Really hope the FAI, and particularly senior management, are taking note of this lad's rapid progression.  

Has a potentially huge future ahead of him and has already been stellar for us at underage.


Havnt heard much about him playing in our underage squads but hopefully in the next campaign he comes good. West Ham certainlybhave a very strong academy. Remember seeing a few of the u21 games last campaign and Josh Cullen was the standout player apart from Rice who’s another member of the academy.

Think we’d probably have a better chance of holding on to him as he has a more direct link than Rice given his mother is Irish

Lady Godiva?
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.

I suppose any irony is relevant when talking about West Ham.

Was on the bench again today for West Ham senior team at only 18 yo.  

Hope to see him get fast-tracked to the senior squad, at least in a developmental capacity.  He's clearly a serious prospect.

That's the smart move here, I agree

Yeah or perhaps he - and his agent - would see it as a cynical ploy to tie down his options prematurely in which case it could backfire and not be so smart. 
Say he turns out in a few years to be not good enough for England but good enough for us but then we'd alienated him from representing us by pushing him in to committing too early? There's lots of hypotheticals you could throw on so just pick players at the moment they deserve to be picked and if they really want to play for us they will.

They could always just ask him if he wants to be included in a squad, but I suppose that would be far too sensible.
We're decent enough..

Couldn't agree more. Time to call out these players and make them commit or depart.

Theres a few good dual nationality players in the underage ranks think they should depart like Keane and Grealish rather than making us train them and depart.

Agreed.

All I'd add is that the player be 18 and genuinely capable of offering something.

An 18 year old knows where their heart/allegiance lies, assuming they possess either.

Reliable as our playing pool is on players not born on the island, I'd like if we developed a reputation for not entertaining mercenaries or option musers. The Welsh method can be seen as covetous and clingy, but I do admire the 's**t-or-get-off-the-pot' aspect of it.

Coventry can't be that far from our first team squad and a change in approach is probably needed. We shouldn't be calling up players like David Meyler with experience but struggling in the championship. Club form may dictate younger players call up but this appears to have back fired in the case of Liam Kelly, Scott Hogan (albeit briefly thinking he'd get an England call possibly) and now Rice. Surely if a dual nationality player is good enough for the bench of premiership mid table team he should be capped immediately by us or chucked aside if he rejects the call.

We're terribly short in centre-mid now with all the pull-outs and injuries.  

This lad possibly the next best player available in that position.  Has been outstanding for us at u21, u19 and been in the first team picture with West Ham for a while.  Might be an idea to promote him from the Toulon squad.
