Touted by whom exactly?



Type "Brandon O'Neill Ireland" into your web browser like a good little girl and your question shall be answered Thumbs Up


All I can see is that he was called into the Australia squad.

Just another one of your over hyped players .

Well you're not looking hard enough then. And where have I overhyped him? I've made absolutely no comment as to his ability or whether he should be called up. I've simply made a statement in the eligible players thread that an eligible player who has been previously linked with us has made a move.

Horsebox is it? More like horsesh*te in this case Embarrassed
We're decent enough..

Not really horsesh*t, I was asking a question about Brandon O'Neill being called up by MON, and you threw your toys out of the pram in a little hissy fit.

No, you were being snide because we had a disagreement in another thread.
Two simple questions:
1. Is this the eligible players thread - Yes
2. Is Brandon O'Neill an eligible player - Yes
So what on earth are you running your mouth about?
We're decent enough..

I don't believe that Brandon O'Neill was ever considered for any call up, hence my question.

No idea why you're trying to be the fountain of all knowledge and when something's challenged you become aggressive like some pompous twat.
If anyone else had said that he'd have been whining and accusing them of misogyny as well.

Firstly, we all know that's not the real reason you decided to be confrontational.

Secondly, if you had done what I said you should very clearly see a couple of newspaper articles at the top of your search bar stating O'Neill would be open to a call up and he was being watched by MON.

Can I take this as an acceptance from you that I never actually "overhyped" O'Neill, or even made a reference to his ability, as you have previously claimed?

I didn't find any article about Brandon O'Neill being called up. Feel free to prove me wrong on this, you clearly have your knickers in a twist here.

Alexis McAllister is another with Irish heritage but has set his sights on playing for Argentina although his two brothers could potentially be eligible this is what his father Carlos said in a recent article on the Athletic.

References to Alexis are often followed by mentions of Scottish ancestry, given the implication of the family name, but it is misleading.

“According to our family, we came from Ireland, rather than Scotland,” dad Carlos reveals.

Couldn't tell you, definitely eligible though.

He is no doubt a handy player. The type of player we would have been desperate to declare for us a year or two ago given the lack of talent coming through. 

We were so starved of any decent underage prospects (and those we had disappointed by failing to live up to what may have been unrealistic expectations), that we chased after anyone like a group of teenage boys attempting to lose their virginity. 

Thankfully given the other talent we can focus on (and the realistic expectation that some of those lads will make it) we don't need to show the same interest or desperation in the likes of Dowell. I understand he has never shown any interest in declaring for us.

Did he have Irish citizenship before playing underage for England? If he didn't he won't qualify for us anyway.

Yeah, key point. He was a good prospect a couple of years back, but hasn’t really pushed on. One of those that can spank in a 35 yarder, which always elevates expectations via the highlight reels

You can only switch to a country which you hold the 'Nationality' of when you played your first competitive game for another country.
Nationality is conferred by parents automatically so no need for passports or being registered on the foreign births etc. if your folks were born in the target country.

Johanssen's issue is his mother was born in England (irrelevant she moved back to Ireland soon after) and father in Sweden so he had no Irish nationality until he got a passport, which was after he played a competitive fixture for Lux underage.
