Kenny gave the exact tactical reasoning behind the Parrott selection.
He said he's only in because McG is out (for the first game anyway) and Parrott offers what McG offers with hold-up play etc.
Obafemi doesn't.
We have to trust that Kenny knows more about what Parrot can offer than we do.

Obafemi is Kenny's A.Reid, Ireland and Hoolahan now reading some comments. His attitude has been questioned by Hasenhuttl. Kenny said a few weeks ago that Obafemi wouldn't be picked. Kenny said he has no experience playing the posiiton Kenny would put him in.

Worst case scenario all the time with some LOL 
Man left out of squad is now changing countries, all that from a one word tweet. Anyway, like was said already, good to see he's upset about not being in it. Be a lot worse if he didnt give a toss

I love how this whole "his attitude was questioned by Hassenhuttl" gets trotted out ad infinitum now based off one comment. Hassenhuttl, in a fairly throwaway manner, said that Obafemi needed to look after his injury rehab more carefully. Off the back of this fairly innocuous comment, the defining characteristic of Obafemi according to many on this forum is that he is unprofessional, unfit, etc. The reality is that Obafemi suffers from hamstring issues, which is probably the most common issue faced by young, short, explosively quick footballers. I don't think the fact that he has this issue is reason enough to draw sweeping conclusions regarding his professionalism.

Loads of times footballers have made typos while spelling on social media and it's never made it into the papers when they are being quoted, the spelling is always corrected.

I found it very curious why they kept in his spelling for "intresting".

I wonder these days when lads are 14 and left off their school team are they tweeting cryptic tweets so to be like their heroes.

Bit early in the day for Obafemi to be anyone's "hero" isn't it? I doubt many aside from close followers of the Ireland team know or care about what he tweeted.

Word is that several clubs didn't release their players who are in the 1st teams so don't think Obafemi or Smallbone are there, among others.

But we don't know for sure as they haven't released a list of who's there and who isn't.

It will be unfortunate if the club didn't release him. Surely that won't do much at minute to please Kenny. He would have to get starts for Southhampton if he wants to make the squad for next summer.

"Southampton duo Michael Obafemi and Will Smallbone are among a cohort of players who haven’t been released, but their clubmates Will Ferry and Tom O’Connor have both linked up with the Ireland U21s this week. Stoke City’s Nathan Collins is another who has remained with his club as the start of the 2020-21 season approaches."

Nothing to do with Obafemi or Smallbone, it's Southampton's decision. It's not an international window for the U21's so clubs don't have to release the players if they don't want to.

I'd imagine the reason they released the other two is that they aren't part of the 1st team picture so they don't really care that much about them.

Yeah, I think that's fair enough, all three are in and around the first team for their respective clubs. 

Its disappointing but if you look at it, its very positive too that our u21s are making fantastic progress

Yeah, that makes total sense.

I actually found it odd they published a squad for that  camp, as they would for an actual match.

Better to just say they were having a camp and then announcing who was involved and a few lines on those who they wanted but are better served staying with their clubs and fighting for 1st-team starts.

At this stage does anyone know definitively who's there?

Obafemi's outburst looking more and more premature by the week. Left on the bench with Long as Hasenhuttl brings on Nathan Tella. 20 minutes left.

Hes the kind of player that could go on to have a great top level career or could be grinding out a living in the lower leagues in two or three years time. The next year or two is crucial for him, he needs to get the head down and stay off social media and the burgers.
