Looked good v Arsenal. With out lack of striking options surely worth a look. Apparently the FAI are on the case according to Rob Brennan on twitter.

Time and time again. 

What is the connection, how is he eligible? Well, the only thing going in our favour he plays with 6 and potentially 7 players hailing from Ireland that may play a role.

So what, they should be all over him when he's not playing or playing poorly.
 
Surely the logic is when someone is playing well and they're eligible then we investigate.

He's at PNE a mid table side so obvious PL goals aren't there, quite literally surrounded by Irish lads there is currently 11 players ahead of him for the England u21 side (not including Sterling, not sure if he's still eligible) no longer in their u20 squad either.

Very very Similar to Ciaran Clark, we could have a chance here. While we're at it Patrick Bamford/Hogan are still eligible there is a plethora of eligible players, Lukas Jutkiewicz is another it's time to make a move we've a lot to offer WC2018 is within arms reach for us if that doesn't attract players I don't know what will.

He was pretty highly rated in Villa's academy. Like I've been aware of him for about 3-4 years, so if he is eligible surely the FAI should have been aware of him too.

As you say there's zero evidence on him being eligible so consider the topic closed tbh.

Even if he was, there's nothing to say that's he's even interested in playing for Ireland, the biggest clues are their Social media profiles.

In Callum's case, a tweet from last year: "Go on @JackGrealish1 #England" 
I'm no psychologist but that doesn't sound like a man interested in playing for Ireland.


Posted By: DeclanDaly

The only evidence seems to be that one lad who's friend says he is a cousin and thinks he is probably eligible. Not getting worked up about this one right now.

Who you play for at U21 if you're dual-nationality does not necessarily mean all that much e.g.: Grealish, Scott Hogan potentially, most of the Algeria, Tunisia and Senegal national teams etc.

So I wouldn't be getting too upset about that.  

A bit of creepy Twitter stalking shows he does have a lot of time for Ireland - applauding our fans at the Euros, wishing Ciaran Clark all the best in the Sweden game, applauding Wessi's goal etc.  

Could well be an option for us. You'd have to hope working with so many Irish lads day in, day out would help him.

Do we really need to create a new, specific thread for every player who is rumoured to, maybe, in some way, be eligible to play for us? Surely a single, catch-all 'Potentially Eligible Players' thread would be a better way to go.

The guy's represented England more than 30 times, all the way up to U20 level, yet has somehow earned his own thread on a Republic of Ireland football supporters' site. Bizarre.

I like him as a player. Tends to score in bursts, but he works hard, has good feet and is mobile. In terms of what we already have, he reminds me of a more mobile McGoldrick or a young Doyler. Good to have a player who can play across the frontline and still be a goal threat.

Yet another player who doesn’t fit our target man mould, though. At 5’ 10’ he’s no replacement for Murphy. Looks like we’re going to have to start playing football.

I know anyone can look decent on a YouTube highlights reel (as evidenced by the number of times McGeady pops up in this clip) but there are some decent finishes in here.

Obviously this doesn't tell the story of how many chances he needs to score but either way, he appears to be a good lad to have on board. He's still only 23.

Scores twice for Preston keeping their slim chances of promotion alive.

Robinson only turned 23 in February and has gotten 7 goals and 7 assists this season, he's a really solid option for us on the wing, as a number 10, or up front.

Watching him against Stoke on Sky Sports at the moment.

He really does look to be a fantastic player. Has been central to everything positive that Preston have done, he can beat a player, pick out a pass and has great control.

Joe Allen has just resorted to kicking him at this stage as he keeps drifting from the left-wing into the middle to create chances.

He can play up front, on either wing or at number ten.

He really should be given a chance in the upcoming Nations League games, he's up against McClean, Allen and Williams who will all be involved next month, so it couldn't be argued that he's not proven against that standard of player.

I can't believe that this guy has declared for us and is just 23, he looks every bit the player that Grealish is.




Posted By: The O'Shea

Outscored and contributed to more goals than Grealish last season, there's less than a year in their age difference.

I'd say that there isn't a whole lot between them. Well except for Grealish's ridiculous price tag.

I'm fairly sure Grealish missed half of last season, which would be a relevant consideration.

Didn't realise that which is probably a fair variable in their respective records last year.

Regardless, Robinson definitely gives us options in positions that we've been struggling in of late.

The question is will MON play such a positive, attacking player?

Robinson is a greatly undervalued player. He had great chemistry with Burke when they were both at Villa. Hopefully they will be able to hit it off again

More than likely RB, I'm glad to have the chap on board, but if he was that good he probably wouldn't have come next or near us. That's just the way things are in football at the moment, I don't really expect that to change, no matter how much Kilbane or McClean decide to rant about it.

You could say that about any English born player who has ever played for us. Mick McCarthy openly admitted that he would have rather played for England. Townsend was shouting for England at Euro 88 and playing against them in Italia 90. Other players have been more coy and said the opportunity never arose. I think Kilbane and O'Leary are the only players who actually declined interest from England.

Did this happen?

Agree with most of the post though, it's very easy for former players to give their opinions on choosing us over England when in reality, how many of them would have been able to get into those England teams. 

Glad to have Robinson on board, but it shows the level we've fallen to when we're pinning our hopes on a Championship level (for now) player.

You could say that about any English born player who has ever played for us. Mick McCarthy openly admitted that he would have rather played for England. Townsend was shouting for England at Euro 88 and playing against them in Italia 90. Other players have been more coy and said the opportunity never arose. I think Kilbane and O'Leary are the only players who actually declined interest from England.
 
Alan McLoughlin did too. in his autobiography he talks about being called up to both England 'B' and Ireland 'B' at the same time. He said as soon as the letter arrived from FAI there was no further thought on the subject

I'm not saying it didn't happen, I'm saying that it's strange that only one person can remember the manager of the Irish team saying in 2001 that he would have played for England.

I never recall Mick saying he wanted to play for England.
Reading today that McAteer said he turned down England.

I remember that. It was Jimmy Armfield that asked him to play for England and he went mental in a press interview when McAteer said no.

Fair enough.
 
He was asked in the interview if he didn't mind clarifying; would he have rather played for England. He replied quick as anything that he did mind and the journalist could f*** off. Journalist goes bright red and Mick says that in all seriousness he was born in England and had he been given the option of playing for England he would have jumped at the chance but the reality was they were never interested.

Again, nobody else remembers this interview, nor has it ever been mentioned on this, or any other, forum.

Is there a chance all three of them could start against Wales? They are all on form the past few weeks.

Yes, and given the fact that Mick missed out on being the best man at his brother’s wedding to make his debut (in a friendly) it seems somewhat unlikely

Robinson and Browne not a bother.
I'd imagine Burke and possibly Maguire could struggle to attract another club.

Feel like Seani would be worth the risk - could be a good impact sub off the bench for a top half Championship side. Depends on how he comes back next month. Agree Burke would go down with the club.

Sean Maguire will come back and score 15+.

Not negativity, I think he’s one of the top players on the championship when healthy. Just injury concerns.

Whatever about Burke, why would Maguire struggle to find another Championship club??? 
He’s proven he’s good enough in his very short stint there

I think many Irish fans were too critical of him against Wales, I'd say Messi would have struggled that night the way we were set up.

Seems to have a brilliant attitude, great to have him on board with us!

Yeah, great attitude, bit of pace and nice touch.  

Clearly not a finisher though... much more of a winger than a striker or no 10 imo.

Six goals in his last eight games. He has to start vs the Danes. 

What is his best posistion though? It appears he can play on either wing, upfront, or at 10.

In fairness GD,  I don't remember any criticism in the media or on here  towards Robinson in that game. Apart from O'Dowda, there was noone that came out of that game with too much credit whether it was the manager or the players.

A great return for any attacking player, never mind one in a struggling side.

At least his versatility will give us options. Haven't seen enough of him to say what his best position would be though.

I'm willing to give every player the benefit of the doubt under this regime. Any judgement should be reserved for the the next manager to take the reigns.

Probably our most in form player right now, maybe other that Doherty. Another 2 goals today.
