Hope he sticks with us. Looks a very competent player in the little i have seen of him for the 21s.

Be shocked if he didn't.
Has played 25 times underage, is a key member of SK's U21s and I'd imagine will be capped by him within his first year of tenure.  So he'd have to make a big decision then and I get the impression SK is encouraging far more loyalty than we saw from the shambolic MoN in this area (remember his treatment of Obafemi when he was in the camp looking to be capped...).
As an aside on that, was reading about that whole incident and saw a quote from MoN talking about bringing in the younger players for the friendly and the last NL match - 'the 24, 25 and 26 year-olds' etc....thank fuk we're past that nonsense.

The bigger question about Coventry is will he make it to International standard.  Here's hoping as he's looked v good to this stage.

I'm sure Stephen Kenny has regular one on one chats with the most promising players in our under 21 set up with the promise of international honours at senior level if they keep playing well and show the hunger needed to be a top professional.

I'm no fan of McCarthy but at least over the last 6 months we have seen Connolly, Parrott, O'Connor, Travers etc all win caps so there's a definite pathway into the set up now (to a point) and with the emergence of numerous other good young players like Knight, Molumby, O'Shea, Collins etc any young player in our set up should be licking their lips about the bright future they could have with Ireland.

Some players have their heads turned by agents and money unfortunately.

Grealish could have been a superstar for Ireland, he could have earned 100+ caps, and possibly play at Europeans and World Cups which both would have opened further doors for him but he got his head turned and chose England and now years later still has yet to make an appearance.

That should be a lesson to a lot of these players.

On current form, Grealish should be in the England squad for Euros next summer which could be the opposite lesson you're intending.

His mother is from Ringsend, I think. Based on interviews with him, I’d be fairly confident he’s nailed his colours to us

Grealish is 100% good enough to be playing some part for England but unfortunately for himself, there are a lot of good options covering his position.

It's nearly 5 years ago since he turned his back on us and you'd have to think he'd easily have 30+ caps by now.

I think he's a far bigger loss than Declan Rice will plenty of our young central midfielders starting to blossom.

30? If he'd turned up when he was first wanted in 2015, he'd probably be closer to 50. I think he'll win some England caps, perhaps 10-15, but he's not exactly young anymore and England always have a new flavour of the month coming through, so you never know.
We're decent enough..

Agreed. Unless there are a few injuries, I don’t see Jack going to the Euros this summer. He’ll need to move to a top 6 club to get his chance, don’t see him getting many England call-ups as he’s battling relegation with Villa.

Sadly this is true, some of the football he's playing for villa is incredible. Very likely that england will have a midfield of rice and grealish...

I disagree that he'll only get 10-15 caps however, there are no england players that can carry the ball like him. If he continues to play the way he is he could look to get 50 caps.

The attacking options England have at the moment is incredible. Maddison has moved ahead of him now aswel as Sancho, Sterling and Alli. He will do well to ever play in major championships with the likes of Foden aswel coming up behind him.

He'll play in this summer's Euros unless his form falls of a cliff.
 
He's better than Maddison

Maddison's been around the squad for a while, and has a cap. Southgate's not likely to risk a new cap in the Euros.
I think Grealish with end his career with around 30 caps

Coventry linked with a loan move to MK Dons and Lincoln.

Appleton for Lincoln must've liked what he seen at the last u21 game as they signed Elbouzedi and are linked with several of our u21 stars

Wouldn't agree with that. Maddison looks like the more rounded player - the type that tend to be more suited to international football than the likes of Grealish.
