 Sunderland have agreeded a fee with Derry City for the winger. What do you guys think of him as a player ?

Hope he does well. I love to see lads from the LOI coming over to England. I know it is technically wrong, but it shows the league can produce decent enough players. 

I must make the exception of Daryl Murphy however, he should have stayed at homeCry

Fair enough the Murph is not the greatest but I'll always remember the goals he scored v Wigan Spurs Boro Luton etc.

He is in the squad for the NI game v the Faroes though.  However the genius that is Nigel said that he probably won't get near the squad.

They have recruited Gerry Armstrong to be a conduit between the defectees and the national team. Looks like he won't even get a chance to speak to McClean.

In all fairness, the way McGinn, McCourt and Mannus have been treated would put anyone off playing for them, let alone Neil Lennon.

If McClean ended up playing for Celtic, he probably thinks he'd end up getting death threats.

By all rights, it should take Northern Ireland years to clean up the mess they have created.

Thats a poor squad, we could be a squad of players that have never been picked at senior level that would woop the north Sammon,  Rooney, McCarthy, Quinn, Randolph. Thats a five a side team that would beat the NI Xi.

James has been outstanding this season now.

We all knew he was too good for us, and that he'd go abroad.  Good luck de him now over in England.  Easily good enough for the top division over there.  He's the best player this city has produced in years.

Great decision to tell the north to go feck themselves.  Worthington only got interested when he heard James might go to Britain.  Bigot.

Trap, sign him up!

How would you compare JM to Paddy McCourt ? Hopefully John O'Shea and Kieren Westwood will give him plenty of encouragement for declaring for Ireland and in the future he may be lining up for club and country with David Meyler and John Egan.
 
I hope the deal invoves a freiendly at the Brandywell next close season as I would love a trip to Derry. I've met some top fellas from Derry who have studied at Sunderland University over the years.

More traditional winger than McCourt, plays wide, pacey, decent cross and would provide more than McCourt. Much more reliable and (fingers crossed) a lot less injury prone.
 
And you can get to feck with that idea. That was part of the deal with Celtic for McCourt and McGinn and was an utter disaster. Just the cash please!

Trapattoni was asked about James McClean’s declaration for the Republic of Ireland after he pulled out of Nigel Worthington’s squad to face the Faroe Islands on Wednesday.

“It’s important what he said, that he clarified what he wants,” said the manager. “We always work with the aim of adding new players to our squad. But when the papers get involved it can get more complicated. He’s a good offensive wide player, tall and powerful. Now we will have the possibility of following him more."

The winger is set to join Sunderland after a €400,000 fee was agreed with the Candystripes last Friday.

I don't believe we're in the middle of a famine of decent Irish midfielders, just for one reason or another we haven't played them.

Who was interviewing him? Surely the first question would be, "How can you be surprised that he wants to play for the Republic given the treatment of players from similar backgrounds and also in light of the fact that Northern Ireland have zero chance of qualifying for a major tournament?

or "Do you the think the death-threats he would receive if he did decide to play for Northern Ireland would act as a source of inspiration and boost his level of performance, in a stick and stick approach to motivation?"

The fact that he has been treated by the same doctor as Michael Essien doesn't fill me with confidence. Essien is out for the rest of the year, I hope Meyler holds up better than him.

I seriously doubt that. I'd say more likely they were one of a few who have been keeping an eye out for a while. James was carrying a bit of an injury into that game as was fairly terrible by the standards he's set all year.

Initial fee of €400,000. What terms are in the deal that allow this fee to grow?
 
If Derry have any sense they will use this money for long term initatives such as improving facilities at the bradywell, setting up a youth academy etc rather than players wages/signing new players.
 
I hope there is a clause in the deal for 10-15% of any sell on fee.
 
If Cork City had had that in the Shane Long deal they would be getting £700k this week
 
No player should be sold from the LOI without such a clause to go with the initial fee

Spot on Jerry.

Youth academy seems in decent enough shape with some of the young talent being produced in Derry but I think the Stadium is pretty much every Derry Fan's priority.
 
Now, 350K obviously wont buy a stadium but hope it goes towards getting the ball rolling on something. Sorting out Merchandising would be a very worthy use of the money as well - its shambolic really.
 
Apparently the sell on clause is 15%.

That's a pretty good deal when you consider the peanuts some of the leagues better players have moved on for in recent years. Other clubs should take note.

 

Not much good though if their accountant doesnt advise them about "matching policy"

If Cork City had had that in the Shane Long deal they would be getting £700k this week
 
 
i'd say derry will us the money to pay off existing debt?
 
afaik, cork had a sell on clause for long but they bought it out a few years ago when they were fcuked.
 
EDIT: mixed up long and doyle. they bought out doyles sell on fee.

I see Brian Kerr claiming that the allegiance issue does not sit well with him ahead of the Faroe's game with the Pub Team. Yet he played Clinton Morrison , with whom Ive no problem with, just would like to point the hypocrisoacy of his statement. Surely someone like James from Derry would have more of a right than a 3rd generation player born and bred in England.

I like Brian Kerr but he seems to have serious dose of sour grapes. Wise up Brian, you seem to have conviently forgotten that you played a Belfast lad named Crossan way back in the the nineties.

Saw that.  It's actually staggering hyoprisy seeing as it was him who began picking northern born players such as Ger Crossley for his underage teams.....

Always had time for Kerr but his bitterness really does him no favours...

He loves the lemons Brian Kerr. Loads of examples of his bitterness since he lost the job

I see Gerry Armstrong is saying McClean is having second thoughts about switching to Ireland and that Shane Ferguson is staying with Norn Iron. I will be amazed if Ferguson does not make the switch as contary to all the posters on Our Wee Country from speaking to a close member of Shane's family they were very keen on Shane making the switch and it would be a dream come true for them to see Shane pull on the Irish shirt. Be interesting to see what happens.

Id say this could be more to do with Gerry trying to put a positive spin on things.

"We have to stop the FAI cherry-picking Northern Ireland talent."
 
That is incorrect, the FAI are not picking the best NI players to represent us merely providing a chance for youths or an Irish presuasion to play with THEIR country.

The newsletter is a rag, but funny none the less
