Great peno for the U19s yesterday.  He's clearly got a lot of confidence.  

You'd think with him, Idah, McAuley and Ronan Hale coming through, we'll get at least one gem of a striker for the senior team in years to come.  

Hopefully Irish strikers are like Irish buses in one respect: you wait for ages for one to turn up, and then four come at the same time.  

As opposed to just big, dirty, slow and likely to break down.

Or a manager who plays them on the wing.

It’s a bit different comparing a player born in Ireland who’s parents aren’t from here though.

He was also eligible to play for England.

looks like he could develop nicely in the new Football Manager.

11 finishing- for 16 year old that's pretty good
15 Determination- This is the key one alongside his Fairly Determined personality he could be trained to be future star.

Owen never played for Wales at any level, I think that rule changed shortly after Giggs played for England. Otherwise we wouldn't be able to pick the English players we do at under-15 and under-16 level.

Yeah poor Freddy Adu got over hyped.
I was just curious to how he was portrayed in the latest game I'm not stating that he will turn into a world beater just because he has good potential on a game.

But as I said with the right coaching he could become a decent player in Fm19 (anyway)

Not to name names, but there is a young Irish lad at Liverpool and his social media is full of Rolex watches and brand new Audi’s. 

Why on earth would you push yourself to succeed when you can play for Liverpool under 23s for 4/5 years and still make a fortune?

It is really difficult to blame the players themselves. I know that I wouldn't have been able to handle all that at 17, most of us wouldn't. The clubs have to take huge responsibility in developing human beings as well as footballers, something the English(Abu Dhabi, Russian, American ) almost deliberately ignore, especially at the richest teams . This is one of the hundreds of reasons we need them to stop stockpiling players at the richest franchises there. They only need a couple to be sold on, not to even make it at their team, and they will have made a profit and stopped another club that will get them. The whole system is sick.

Anyway, rant over! It is unfair to be discussing this on the Parrott thread, there has been no rumours that he is anything other than a well behaved young lad with a promising future filled with bird jokes.

how many other young strikers are there at spurs i wonder. they only really have Kane at senior level. Llorente cant even get a look in. wonder is he on anyone's radar in the senior set up there?


Posted By: The Huntacha

The probability of him getting into the Spurs first team is highly unlikely so his loan moves will be crucial in his development.

He'll be 17 by the time out next games. If he continues to bang in the goals at Spurs then he has to be at considered I'm not saying he should be starting for us next year but I can see him being in a squad if he continues his form and perhaps given a run out against a 5/6th seed

Great goal. He's a very exciting prospect. Not sure about a senior call up soon though. Let him keep working and improving. Also, I remember Jack Byrne banging in goals in the UEFA Youth League. Warming Kilmarnock's bench now

Mea culpa...I had Ryan Nolan in my head when typed the above. Still I think the u21 level would possibly be a better fit for Troy.

Great finish. But let's not get ahead of ourselves with bringing him in to senior squads yet. He's 16, let him develop a bit more and hopefully he can make an impact at first team level, with loan moves or cup appearances etc.

He’s only 16 so I’d rather let him develop more before putting him into the senior team. 
He is one of the youngest player for the Ireland U19 team.

17 in Feb 2019.
Hopefully he makes it.

I'd say that Jack Byrne and Conor Clifford certainly got as much and more positive press. Don't forget that this is only Parrotts first season in England. I'm hating joining the pun gang here but he is flying.

Didn't make the bench in the end, but it's still great news to hear.

Yeah 18 year old English striker Oliver Skipp made it instead I see, encouraging all the same that he was at least considered.

He's still only 16 and he's obviously still got some physical development to do, but that's a very promising sign.

I wonder if Mick might do something similar and call him up and allow him to train with the seniors as Lee O'Connor did recently. Terry Dixon, also of Spurs, was called up by Stan when he was still 16 and actually made the bench for the match against Chile.

Encouraging words from Poch

. All the players that we have in the squad, the younger ones like Oliver Skipp or Troy Parrott, who was involved today for the first time, it's because they're involved in the first team during days, during weeks, during months, and it's only to give the possibility to play. I don't doubt and I am not worried about players who are injured or don't perform in their best, because we have another who can replace them.

I know we have been down this road with the likes of Jack Byrne etc before, but Parrott’s only 16, a lot of our other prospects might get the chance to train with the senior squad when they are 18/19 etc.

As many have mentioned we have been down this road many times.  He needs a little luck, a lot of hard work and dedication and a good attitude if he wants to make it.

If social media had been around when Paul McShane was 18 he’d have been the most hyped player to come out of Ireland for years. McShane was exceptional in his late teens. A mate of mine played with him and said he was the best player he’s ever played with. As far as I know, McShane made a mess of his career with United by taking on Ferguson - a battle he came out the wrong side of.

Bit of hyperbole there... McShane came through around the same time as Stokes, Stokes was far more hyped even though there was "no social media". I don't think McShane was ever that highly rated.

Ah he was. The fact that he was with Man United was a big deal. I also recall a story doing the rounds when we were 1 up at home to Czech Republic at half time after getting jockeyed in Cyprus the previous week. Some of the players were high fiving each other and apparently McShane, despite only being one of his first appearances, went bananas in the dressing room telling the lads to cop on as there were 45 minutes to go.

He then went and gave Janker too much space and they got a draw out of us but the feeling at the time was that he would be a big star for us.

I'll rephrase; he may have been regarded as a good prospect, but not as a potential superstar, like Stokes and now Parrot were/are.

It was Koller, not Jancker. I do remember comparisons with Kevin Moran at the time, but he certainly was never as hyped up as Stokes or even Partridge. I'm guessing the position he plays would have had some impact too.

It was 0-0 at HT and I’m pretty sure Koller equalised within 5 minutes of Kilbane scoring.

My memory is not what it used to be but I still recall a lot of hype around him. Less so than a goalscorer as PM pointed out, which is standard.

I recall McShane taking the ball from our penalty box and going on a mazey run, taking the ball past players and attempting a shot????

I remember thinking, hol-ee f**k... baller.

I think that in a few years, we should play Alan Browne in the hole behind our young front two.

 
It will remind me of my first pet, but I think our attack should be Idah Browne Parrott
