Someone by the initials of MMC?

He's another one who thought the grass was greener outside the LOI, and didn't make it. For the third time.

I see Jack put out a tweet about how he loved his time at Cambur. Wonder could be go back to Holland and train there before permanently signing when the window opens in Janaury?

They'd probably have him back too, but the money wouldn't be much better than at Rovers.

Hes currently back in Dublin anyway, was on the beer with Anto Stokes last night.

Christ, he's in good company there

How many cigarettes did I bring along?

It may well just of said Jack Byrne has been linked with a LOI team and Brazil in the 1960s.

On his way back to Shamrock Rovers, who presumably have offered a greater package than Lazio.

Looks like Rovers is the only serious offer on the table for him. Which means we're likely facing into a few more years of him being a standout player domestically and being constantly touted for an Ireland squad place when all evidence based on his time abroad suggests that he's nowhere near good enough for the international team.

To be honest I was hoping he'd go to the US and we could just forget about him.

The first paragraph suggests opinion. the second paragraph confirms an agenda on your behalf.

Here's a fact since Jack Byrne last played for Ireland a year ago... we still haven't had a player appear with his creative playmaking abilities. 

If he gets back to the form he was in for rovers a year ago, he will be an extremely strong contender for the international team, not just based on form, but based on the uniqueness of his abilities in his position. 

Would Jack start giving the current system Kenny plays? Probably not. Would it make sense to have him on the bench when it's still 0-0 against a minnow playing a low block? Yes

It's nternational football we're playing not champions League. Jack will be fine.

Bizarre post, more options the better.

We're still lacking that spark in the final 3rd. If he gets back to level he was before he left then he should be in the running. 

Hes no worse than Daryl Horgan or Ronan Curtis who have been getting into squads and seeing game time under Kenny.

He was as good as McGrath in the LOI and better than Ogbene in both the LOI and L1.

Bad decisions is the reason where he finds himself, not through lack of ability.

Had he signed for L1 club last January and done as well as he did there with Oldham a few years ago he'd be considered along Keane, Horgan, Ogbene, Curtis who would be all competing at the same level.

We seen last night the impact a player like Ogbene can have who doesnt even get much of a look in at his club in L1 yet had it in the locker to take it to Portugal last night.

I don't think he is an option though. At least, not a good one anyway. The truth of it is that he's a lovely player on the ball but doesn't put in the hard yards off it.

He's a similar enough player to Dan Crowley, who is floating around League 1 and is nowhere near the Ireland squad. It wouldn't have mattered whether he'd gone to League 1 instead of Cyprus, the outcome would have been much the same. He's not really comparable to Horgan or Curtis, those lads are hard working, if not especially talented, footballers. Byrne's a different kind of player to them.

Championship and League 1 clubs as well as mid rank international teams like Ireland can't afford luxury players like Byrne, unless they're unbelievably talented, like say Wes Hoolahan. Rovers can at the level they play at, and that's why there's a spot waiting for him there. But I don't see him as being anywhere near international standard, any more than Dan Crowley is.

Bizarre, it’s a Dublin thing though obviously, youve weirdly brought it up before, and weirdly done it again.  
Just say it instead of skirting around it, have the bollox to say what you mean.

Kenny has the courage to pick players based in their talent, not the club they play for or the league the play in. Ogbene, McGrath are 2 current examples.

Byrne playing regularly, regardless of where that is, is a good thing for Ireland. He has something that we lack. He's still only 25 and I think he'll win more caps. I'm calling it now

Ogbene has started 11 of the 15 games he's played in the league and the one he missed was through injury.
