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.

Yep! Look how our players improve drastically the less they play for us.

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.”




He can fook off. It's clear he doesn't love the EIRE.  Its exactly wha Grealish's brother said on here about Union Jack.

It would be braindead stuff from us if we get burned again especially when the opportunity is there to throw him on against Gibraltar.

I love the way people are saying throw him on against Gibraltar, the same team only for a magnificent Randolf save we would have dropped points against. Is it more likely that we could throw him on against Denmark in stoppage time when we are two goals down. If he's not going to be in the squad he can go to Toulon or is he eligible for the u19's.

In fairness to him, he's hardly going to go around saying he is going to cap players just to tie them down!

Correct. I don’t think anybody else does it anyway.
The majority of those the Welsh have capped have proved they have potential, as well as Wales having a smaller playing pool. It certainly isn’t as flagrant as implied on here.

I can imagine certain individuals howling with laughter at St. Georges Park at our stupidity if we don't cap him. England have shown at numerous age groups that they're willing to take on anyone, even if they aren't yet eligible!! Wales have capped guys with fewer senior appearances than Connell, and have called up players with no senior appearances at all! We are so far behind the curve it's unbelievable. We've certainly lost 1 top player in the recent past because of it, possibly 2.
We're decent enough..

To clarify, 'for the sake of it' is an idiomatic expression meaning to something that is essentially pointless, to do something 'for no particular reason': http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/for the sake of it

People are calling for Connell to be awarded a cap in the upcoming matches not for no particular reason - 'for the sake of it' -  but rather because of his talent, the form he's shown for Bolton and, by general consensus, his great potential, and to avoid the endless speculative nonsense that surrounded the will-he-won't-he Rice saga.
