Didnt make the engalnd u17 squad for the euro finals. Maybe he wasnt as good as was taught or would now be a good opportunity to try and get him back into the irish set up.

No. Good luck to the lad (I probably don't mean that)

He is only just back from injury and has only just been put on the bench for the Arsenal under 18's last couple of games because of that. Maybe that is the reason for not being in the squad? He is definitely good enough to be in it anyway. Haven't seen him play apart from the highlights of a few of the Arsenal under age games that go up on the Arsenal player but since he has went to Arsenal has been the stand out player whether that is playing for the under 18's or 21's according to pretty much every match report.

Looks a very good talent no doubt, but I'd like to see clarity on these types of players at his age to see whether they want to play for us or not.

 
We shouldn't have to play second fiddle to any player.

Does anyone know if MON / RK have spoken with him at least? Hopefully someone can ask them at an upcoming press conference.

We should do what we can to get him on board! We need our best team available in the future.

True, invite him on board again, make him feel special, a central player. I know lots of people will disagree and I won't argue with you but sometimes there are special players that you need to put that bit of extra effort in to get them to play with us rather than England, despite it being just potential. We are not exactly blessed with exceptional talent at the minute and its all part and parcel of the game today. I'm not bothered that he hasn't made his mind up. If he is that good than he has the luxury of the choice and we should be making that choice easier for him. He obviously has affinity for both countries, nothing unusual about that. Who knows maybe he is just saying this to get England scared and get himself promoted to their u21's but nothing ventured nothing gained. Its not worth doing nothing over.

I honestly couldn't give a rats *ss whether he considers himself English, Irish or Chinese, if this kid turns out to be a world class player I'd want him to be in our team. It's all well and good having a team of Paul McShanes who are "proud to be wearing the jersey" etc. etc. but you'll never get anywhere with them. I think we often afford to much importance to patriotism and flag-waving, I'd rather have a team of excellent players who aren't uber-patriotic but  are capable of achieving something than hard triers who invariably come up short. Pragmatism wins things, not misplaced pride and egotism.
We're decent enough..

Well said. I agree with that 100%.

The national team program of Ireland needs to be more agressive check how it works with other teams when they are looking for some youngster.  Italy almost got Icardi from Argentina, and Messi could have been playing for Spain due to recidency a fewyears back, an offer came when he was 16. 

 Eire is losing some genuine youngsters under the english situation,  Gerrard and Rooney could have played for Eire.  Gerrard's cousin appears as irish in wikipedia.

I have no issue with what Crowley is doing. If he feels both English and Irish so be it. I just hope we can convince him that Ireland is the better option.

I know it can hard to judge definitively based on you tube clips, but he looks quality and definitely worth pursuing all the way. We need all the quality we can get. The fact that he has played gaa shows he must have a reasonable amount of affinity for the old sod.
