Would be a really good option for us at RWB.
Maybe you're right but playing devil's advocate: is a player incapable of making the USA team since 2016 "a really good option"? 

The US team is full up with talented players now and they're going for younger age profiles in general.

Gooch has performed really well this season. Quick, good passer, strong, hard working, and loves to get forward as well. I've been really impressed with him and it doesn't look like he'll be called up again to US team because of the competition for his position.

This is one that does not pass my gut test. The lad played under 18 for us, switched to the USA and has played most of his career in League One. It is not Patrick Bamford or James Milner we are talking about here in terms of quality of player that gave us a game or two and moved on.

Pretty sure it's urban myth that he was ever eligible.

True, there was a James Milner who played an u14 game for us way back, not the now famous one tho

Saw one of the player tracking pages on twitter post this article: https://roscommonherald.ie/2022/09/13/player-with-roscommon-roots-makes-manchester-united-debut/

Can't say I have ever heard of the lad but he seems to have impressed at underage level and has recently made his debut for the Man Utd first time.

That says it’s his great grandfather that’s from Roscommon right? That’s a shame, would have been a good get for us. 

He’s extremely clinical and was great at u18s level. He’s struggled with the step up to u21s though, gets outmuscled very easily and doesn’t have the pace to avoid it. As a result he’s spent most matches barely touching the ball. The rare time he gets a chance though he still finishes well. I don’t think he’ll become a top player and unlikely to play for England so would have been good to have a real finisher in the Irish setup.
