Subject: Aiden O Brien
Date Posted: 06 Nov 2015 at 6:32pm
Has 6 goals so far for milwall and has cemented a place in the starting 11. After winning league one player of the month for his 3 goals in 4 games. Only just gone 22 so still has plenty of time to work his way up and get into the irish team. Also has a decent scoring record for ireland with 5 goals in 10 games for u21, 1 goal in 2 games with u19 and 3 goals in 5 for the u17

True, but hopefully it will be better than a League 1 team too...

Sure according to some people here Paddy Madden & Eoin Doyle aren't good enough - and they get 25 a season at that level.

They are both good at a certain level but it will be a very dark day for Ireland if we have to rely on either.

The problem with Ireland is that nobody scores, be they striker, winger or midfielder.

Plenty of teams bigger than Ireland have went to tournaments without a half decent striker but usually there are players who can carry the load in other areas of the pitch.

We have wingers who average about 5 goals in 100 games and central midfielders (Whelan) who go 5 years without scoring goals.

Agreed, but no need to pick on Whelan specifically, McCarthy's goals to games ratio is no better. Meyler gets an odd one or 2 for his club, but hardly prolific either, Quinn even less than that (currently injured anyway), Gibson is nearly always injured but at least has a good strike on a ball the odd occasion he does play, it is a bit early to tell on the likes of Harry Arter (though again, is a good striker of a ball).

Hendrick has done well for us though, at least in the assist department, seems to have the knack for being in the right place at the right time, but difficult to pin all yer hopes on a young lad still learning his trade too. Hoolahan, again, plenty credit in the build up play/assists, but not a lot in the goalscoring either. 

The one that disappoints me most is actually Robbie Brady, we haven't had a decent set piece/free kick specialist since Liam Lawrence left us, and that's 4 years ago now, Brady has the technique and ability to step up to the mark here, but yet we have seen very little evidence of it, bar in the friendly against USA a good while back. 

Goals from defenders have been very rare too, Coleman scored 7 or 8 last year for Everton, rarely looks like doing so for us, JOS/Clark/Wilson/Keogh all do the normal central defender thing & go up for frees & corners, but none of them seem to have the ability/instinct of SSL or Dunne to nick an odd one, you always thought there might be a chance when one of those 2 went forward.

Good summation and agree with it all. Seems we have ultimately failed to replace those that offered a goal threat in, let's face it, all areas of the pitch.

Another goal tonight which takes him to 9 for the season in all competitions which isnt bad considering he missed the start of the season through injury. He is also starting to attract interest from some championship and premier league teams. 

Also goals tonight for bradley garmston and sean murray in the JPT Trophy

He gets a bit of stick from Millwall fans(who doesn't) for being a bit lazy. Still think he is more of a striker than a winger, from what I have seen of him. Hopefully he will push on next season.

Think he had a one in two notch rate at U21 for us, five in ten, and has a goal from two apps at Championship level so far. Still 23, surprisingly little about him considering our scouring that division for strikers.

I haven't seen massive amounts of him but from watching the Football League show he was pretty clinical at times last season for Millwall (granted it was League 1 level) and from the few times I've seen him when Millwall were live on Sky, you can see that Aiden is very pacey and direct (raw) 

I suppose with Scott Hogan we're getting a more polished natural striker with high conversion ratio and all round more skillful. 

Still Aiden is only 24, if he can become a 10+ goal a season man in The Championship then happy days.

Considering he's played the majority of his Millwall career on the wing, I'd say his goalscoring record is pretty good.

I don't think anyone suggested it wasn't?

Long term it probably wouldn't be wide of the mark to suggest he may well move inside and become an out and out striker.

Anyhow I'm delighted there appears to be some effort being made in freshening things up in and around the panel, be it a match day squad or at the very least the extended panel.

Love that. Have afew mates ive met in uni and theyre all birmingham irish. Always discuss if they would ever considered declaring fot the english and they said not a chance haha.

Whether Aiden will see any game time or not is probably unlikely "but" it's really refreshing to see players like himself being in the squad.

I'm a firm believer that having new blood in squads will freshen it up no end and will help limit complacency with many players knowing that no matter how poorly they've performed that they will always be in the squad. 

Suddenly the emergence of Maguire, Hogan and O'Brien has shaken up our attacking options, Andy Boyle and Daryl Hogan the same, not to forget young lads like O'Hara, Rice etc possibly making full squads in the near future.

He’s 24/25 and has a decent goal scoring record in the Championship. He’s also able to play on the wing or upfront. We’re desperate and could do worse than give him a chance.

He's been in and around the squad for a while now without getting a game. Would like to see him get some sort of game time in the Poland game anyway, to hopefully give us a better idea as to whether he's up to it or not

not to be judgemental but he really is not good enough, league one standard and average at that. I know this is crazy talk but why not call up young talent like parrot or idoha not to see what they are like but to give Them confidence. What harm would it cause giving them 20 minutes as a sub against Poland, it would also get us fans excited about the future of Irish players.

Had a decent game, didnt get many chances but took the one he did get very well.

Its just a pity he hasnt had a chance before now, he was first called up in Sept 2017. Thats 9 games, 4 of them being meaningless friendlies and 1 against Moldova at home which may have been a friendly.

Would have offered a lot more than Walters v Wales for sure.

He is a very good finisher, something we lack.

Always amazed Millwall do not play him through the middle. Best finisher at the club but drifts in and out of games and can be infuriating. 

His Instagram is gas, London Irish but brought up in a mainly Jamaican/black estate in North London. Loves god and the old gospel church.g'#

I think I read an interview that said both parents. In fairness, he looks like he may have seen a campfire or two growing up.

Nothing wrong with it either! Don't tell me you didn't think it?
The bestest player on my u8s, u10s and u12s sit around the campfire of an evening.
Wouldn't disrespect their coaches but get stuck in on a Saturday.
 
Wish I had more of them unlike the other pampered, spoilt playstationers.

Pity about the religious thing but no one is perfect I suppose. Blessing himself if he scores might at least piss off the nordies in november.

Mainly people acting in the name of religion causing the trouble. Besides, people like Hitler and Stalin were atheists and caused the most horrendous suffering.

Do you think he blessed himself to the church or blessed himself to God? I'm not religious in any shape but my relatives are. They abhor the behaviour of members of the church anr the God to which they pray abhors as well.

O'Brien looked good. He's 25 next month though it's a pity he's not a bit younger. Anyway I'd gladly have him in there ahead of Walters anyway

Always amazed Millwall do not play him through the middle. Best finisher at the club but drifts in and out of games and can be infuriating. 

His Instagram is gas, London Irish but brought up in a mainly Jamaican/black estate in North London. Loves god and the old gospel church.g'#






 



I thought this was the religious thing! I didn't even notice he blessed himself. Unless he starts celebrating goals by burning babies on the pitch in satanic rituals, let's leave him do his thing. It seems his mother is "born and bred Irish' and that is how he qualifies.

If my previous theory is correct, it is possible that it is both his mum and dad's surname...

Aiden has taken the jump up to international level as a novice like a seasoned campaigner, hope he gets a clear run at it now and can stay the course
