Flood hoping to catch Trap's eye on return to Scotland


By Ruaidhri O'Connor

Saturday July 02 2011

AN http://searchtopics.independent.ie/topic/Ireland - Ireland cap may be the furthest thing from Willo Flood's mind right now, but he hasn't given up on his dreams of wearing the green jersey.

Once the shining Irish light of his generation, the 26-year-old has returned to http://searchtopics.independent.ie/topic/Dundee_United - Dundee United in order to reignite a career stalled by injury -- and http://searchtopics.independent.ie/topic/Tony_Mowbray - Tony Mowbray .

If an http://searchtopics.independent.ie/topic/Ireland - Ireland call were to come his way, he'd jump at the chance and the Dubliner says he can't understand the mentality of those who don't answer Ireland's call.

"Do you know what? With everything that has gone on in the last 18 months, two years, I wouldn't even think about an Ireland cap," he said.

"I'm only 26, I would like one cap, you know? I've seen a few players that don't deserve caps who got caps and I wouldn't mind being one of them even.

"I don't understand players not turning up. I just think it's in your blood to represent your country and I just can't get my head around why people wouldn't turn up."

As a former trainee at http://searchtopics.independent.ie/topic/Manchester_City - Manchester City , Flood is close to http://searchtopics.independent.ie/topic/Stephen_Ireland - Stephen Ireland and has to agree to disagree with his old team-mate about his decision to stay away from international football.

Flood reckons there will be no going back, but he believes Ireland will get back to playing his best football soon.

complex

"Stephen is a complex character," he said. "I just think that's his decision and he's just strong minded about his decisions. He's always been strong minded, even as a kid. I don't think there's any going back on it.

"He felt as if he had a bit of a rough time and he felt he'd be better off with his family in England. It's only a matter of time before he gets back to his best."

Flood has had a difficult time since his dream move to http://searchtopics.independent.ie/topic/Celtic_FC - Celtic went sour under http://searchtopics.independent.ie/topic/Tony_Mowbray - Mowbray .

http://searchtopics.independent.ie/topic/Gordon_Strachan - Gordon Strachan lured him to http://searchtopics.independent.ie/topic/Middlesbrough_F.C. - Middlesbrough and he took to life in the Championship well, but injury haunted him, the manager was sacked and in came Mowbray again. "I think it's safe to say that Tony Mowbray doesn't fancy me as a player," he said with a wry smile.

"I definitely knew the second time, but to be fair I knew the first time. The last 18 months has been the hardest part of my football career.

"With the injuries, it takes it's toll and that's why I've come to back. Me and the manager (Stephen Thompson) get on well and I've played my best football under him so hopefully I can pick up where I left off."

Thanks for that. Had been just wondering the other day if Willo had any desire to play for his country.I can now put that issue to bed.

Willo's nothing better than a journeyman pro in my opinion, hope he makes an ok living at it, but I wouldn't ever rate him as international class from what I've seen of him, very unlucky with injuries also.

Yeah lets put Willo Flood into the team instead of McCarthy and Ireland.Confused
 
I wont even attempt to judge him with Chris McCann as he seems incapable of kicking a ball and not getting injured.
 
Some people really need to get their heads examined with the sh*t they come up with on here.

He would have a hard time getting a place in the centre of midfield let alone out wide where we have myriad options, Duff, McGeady, Hunt, Lawrence, Fahey, Treacy, Hoolahan at a stretch. The poor lad is just too feeble.

Good to hear, who knows he could maybe make some squads if he starts playing as well up at Tannadice as he did in his previous spell. He's had a rough go of it...move to Celtic was a terrible decision

Absolutely brutal, spending that money on him when it could have been spent on Fletcher cost us the league that year

Yes that was with the under 21s so it has nothing got to do with the senior squad....It was also 4 years ago and we've a new manager in place so its a pretty pointless argument tbh!!
 
Well pal dont expect us to qualify for any tournaments soon if we're dropping the likes of McCarthy for Willo Flood....Id rather Trap kept looking at younger hunger players than trying to see if the likes of Flood can cut it at international level...

Ambtion and being realistic are two very different things!!
 
James McCarthy has had more than one genuine reason to not be included for selection , he remains our brightest prospect and can also cut it in the EPL....So are you telling me McCarthy isnt there with the Irish set up and wont be in the future Confused 
 
Younger and hungrier players who can cut it at international level , if Willo Flood is our answer we may aswell give up!! He did well at Dundee Untied but he failed at Man City , Celtic , Cardiff and Boro so you would rather this guy in our squad over a young player with potential???!!
 
I dont want Flood to fail obviously not , i want him to get back on track with Dundee United and have a good club career but he isnt good enough for Ireland his club record has shown that...

Thats great.
Lets get more players like Flood on board and subject ourselves to abject failure for the next few decades.
 
In football you have to be brutal. You need the best XI on the pitch at all times.

  I have nothing against McCarthy having a bright future with us Greenforever and Shamtheram. In fact I've already stated on other threads that I hope he hasn't permenantly damaged his international future with us and I'm quite sure he hasn't anyway. Of course you forgive these guys but don't forget. Realisticlly speaking James- no matter how good he is has had a string of no-shows. His development as a player in the squad has therefore not progressed which means that he's slowed up the development of the entire team. Trap certainly seems to have been trying to fast track the kid into the centre of our midfield. Surely during all that time another player- not necessarily Willo but someone with that drive has also lost out on his place due to it being taken by the constantly missing Mr McCarthy.

Horsebox says he a right winger,so which is it?

He's played both, played more as a cm throughout his career though I'd say. Good athlete, but skill wise probably not good enough for international football.

254 apps 11 goals more than 50% of those apps being in the SPL

I can't think of any legitimate reason footballing wise he warrants a call-up

Why the big long faces (if it's true)? He can't possibly be all that bad. It's a friendly. Let's take a look at him. Best of luck Willo!!

It's not that he's that bad, he's just not very good.

he didnt look like a footballer was very skinny i recalled,  will be 29 soon, dont know, he was quick but Eire needs to open the playing pool, would do better on the right hand side than keogh or cox , but i am open to it,  some irish guys are really into the brit games  from premier league more than the ones involving your countrymen,  who the fcuk cares where the guy plays as long as he performs for the national team,  football is all about confidence and the built of your own momentum,

Some irish lads, please, you  still believe the negativity left by Trapattoni, a guy I think he was an ok to average manager for the national team, but not successful for ireland at all,  he wasnt better than Brian Kerr, to put it in words, in my opinion.  He left a few positives like order, and shape and mentality, but I could have done that and he was getting too much from big fat old good money

Ireland national team, should fear no one, check what Juan Pizzi is doing for Valencia, they won at Nou-Camp the other day, and they kicked , pressed high,  counter attacked, attacked, blocked, they respected Barcelona by not respecting them at all, that's rule number 1 in the beautiful game, anything can happen during 90 + minutes, this old game aint NBA , TENNIS , or RUGBY sh*t

he is not a right midfielder. His success at Aberdeen has been from playing a holding midfielder role.

From what I've seen he is a tidy player these days - retains possession well and does alright winning it back. I've watched a few of his games since he played against UCD in a pre season friendly before this current season. Is he good enough for Ireland? To be honest I'm not sure. If he has impressed Roy I'm sure he will watch him again and get a better look. It might be worth calling him up and seeing what he can offer us

Doesn't sound like the worst midfielder we've ever had in our engine room. Consistent form, good feet, personality..

I don't know. Might these be traits MON would value/develop?

Flood just isn't good enough for the national side. Honest hardworking pro but that's about it. We should be trying out players 8-10 years younger than him in friendlies.

Not really, Keane was there to watch Stokes who didn't play well and Flood played well for Aberdeen who won the game.
 
Plus there wasn't exactly a huge number of Irish players in either side.

Ah.
 
The standard in the SPL is as bad as it ever was, Aberdeen to their credit are doing well this season but let's call a spade a spade, he will never be the answer nor judging by his club career will be good enough for international football.
 
I'd rather give Samir, Murray, Hoban etc a chance to impress than a 29 year old journeyman.

Bullsh*t Tony.
 
The calibre of player plying their trade in Scotland is at an all time low, how you can ignore that is madness.
 
Take a look at how Scottish teams faired in Europe this season.

Tony, you are delusional if ye think the standard is good in the spl. It's nearly on par with the loi at this stage with the exception of Celtic.

As I said I've been keeping an eye out for Flood this season Tony, the standard is very poor - I'm sure it's entertaining for a Celtic fan

Willo is a sound chap!

Had a great chat with him for the radio show and podcast this week and he gives good insight into the problems with underage football in Ireland compared to Scotland where he is an agent now ,He's also told me a mad story about getting robbed at knifepoint by a Man City fan and how he was treated at Celtic!

Played against us in school football years ago and always remember thinking this fella is going to be world class and would look out for his progress.

Never quite made it consistently at the top but decent career for himself.

Interesting interview. Particularly the part where he talked about not playing enough football between 19 and 21. A lot of our current younger players falling into the same trap as he did - Connell, Coventry, Kilkenny and so on.

Especially the players that have come through the Irish system. As he says, they're already behind and playing catch up when they go over so they need to be playing games regularly from 19, 20 onwards.

Very true , He brought it up a few times and it was interesting to hear that the training methods hadn't changed since his days at Cherry Orchard.
