Great to see this lad picked in our senior squad and that we're looking to getting some of the next generation involved.  A good step for the future:

Yeah. Unfortunately now I won't be taking any interest in 2nd or 3rd gen players until they are tied to us.

Would give him game time against Gibraltar, which Mick inexplicably seems against

How is it inexplicable? I would say it is fairly explicable. There are loads of reasons for not capping somebody for the sake of it.

I hope he commits to us, but it doesn't sound very promising here, despite the title of the article ("Luca Connell not planning to follow Declan Rice by turning his back on Ireland.")

------

“I’ve read the speculation [about England] but haven’t had any direct contact.”

For all the assurance those words provide, Rice uttered similar sentiments before being eventually being prised away by Gareth Southgate earlier this year.

“I’m happy where I am at the minute,” was his response to the notion of an invitation being tabled for talks by the England manager.

“I’ll go and see what happens over next few months.”

Sounds like a come and get me plea . Wouldn’t be surprised if he drops out with injury ahead of the Gibraltar game

Article also quotes this though

'' “I wouldn’t hold back from the chance to play for Ireland in the qualifiers because it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity,” Connell said ''

So if we want to get this done, he's ok with it.
He's dual, he feels both, he's ours if we chose to get it done now.
So, get it done is what we should do.

We've been bitten twice, Rice and to a lesser extent Grealish
There's nothing to say that Connell will turn out a top player, but give him 15 minutes at the end of the Gibraltar game to avoid any ifs, buts or maybes.

15 seconds would do the trick just as thoroughly. It doesn't matter how long it is really, the reality is that we simply need to stop being stupid. Pride and stupidity are the sole reasons we've been reluctant to do this in the past with talented dual nationals, and we've paid a heavy price for it.

So he should get a cap ahead of better players in the hope he might be a better player? I have never seen him play and know very little about him, I would see that  the majority on here would be the seem. If he is good enough and is a genuine talent, then he certainly should be capped, but throwing players in for the sake of it has potential to backfire terribly.

And I'll hold my hand up and say I haven't seen him myself, but the reviews I've read have been very promising.
Based on that, and yes he could turn into another Paddy Lee or Joe Lapira, but I would put him on ahead of some of the other player if the game, as it should be, safe.
Hindsight is a great thing, but a lot are saying it should have been done with Rice against Moldova, ahead of I think it was McGeady was the last sub

I just find the clamour over lads nobody has seen play to be baffling. We are a strange little nation.

Lads he's gone just accept it. A mate of mine who is very connected with his family said he is going to represent England. He should have been capped against Denmark in the nations league. Having never seen him play I can confidently say he would walk right into the England starting 11...Ireland aren't good enough for him.
