Connor Ronan's had a strong Toulon Tournament scoring the winner against Bahrain.  This builds on a man-of-the-match display in the u21 Euro qualifier against Luxembourg. 

Dual-qualified, but unlikely to defect, having initially played for England in two underage friendlies.  Took the brave decision to play for one of Slovakia's best teams on loan, DAC Streda, helping them to a Europa League spot and playing alongside senior Slovakian and Hungarian internationals.  Wolves have moved to tie him down for another two years. I wouldn't be surprised to see him go on loan on the continent again, possibly to the Erddivisie or similar. 

He's one you could see Stephen Kenny bringing up to the senior team with him in 18 months time.  One of the most creative players we have available for selection at any level, though may need to develop physically a bit more to be considered seriously at senior level.  

Here's a good article on him:

agreed on the physical development. If he was Russian they’d have him sucking down jet fuel by now. To look at him, he may just be a late developer. Hopefully he evens out in a season or two

He's one of the few players I've seen, in the 21's and senior team, that can take the ball on the move rather than taking a first touch and then moving. Seems like he'd be better off on the continent playing his football as, at the moment, he looks better suited to that. 

I doubt Kenny would have the same apparent reluctance as Mick to calling up players playing in perceived "weaker" leagues in Europe, so playing away from England may not hurt his chances of a senior call-up, provided he is playing well.

The main advantage that kenny's going to have when he comes in is he genuinely will be part of a rebuilding project. And he'll have a group c Nations League with which to stay off the process which is fairly handy.

Perhaps. I'd imagine they'll be seeded in terms of where teams finished the season before hand

i.e Relegated teams from league above will be 1st seeds

Teams who finished 2nd would be 2nd,

3rd would be 3rd *

and promoted teams from leagues below would be 4th seeds

that would mean

Pot 1
Slovakia, Turkey, Northern Ireland, Rep of Ireland

Pot 2
Israel, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania

Pot 3
Greece, Albania, Montenegro, Georgia*

*One 3rd place team were relegated so the best placed promoted team takes this place

Pot 4
Belarus, Kosovo, Macedonia

Worst case scenario
Romania- A talented young team can be hot or cold on their day but would provide a stern test
Georgia - More in a sense we always seem to draw them. Montenegro would be another tough team should we draw them.
Kosovo- A bit of an unknown really as an emerging nations their ranking probably doesn't do them justice


Best case
Bulgaria- mostly on the fact they are the lowest ranked them in UEFA Rankings from the pot will still be a difficult trip
Albania-Between Albania and Greece, The Greeks are going through a bit of a lull but I'd still be wary of them and would prefer Albania over them.
Belarus- More down to I'd rather them over Kosovo or Macedonia though a tough trip The North needed late goals to beat them in Euro qualifying

Either way some cracking trips

Looks like Connor Ronan will be staying on loan at FC DAC until December at least.  Hopefully he'll get a run in the Europa League there as well.

He's been flying since he went there: if it ain't broke, don't fix it.  

Must be a contender for a call-up in September (at least the friendly) given the amount of football he's playing and his star turn in Toulon.

Got me thinking about Ronan, and the loan choice that Wolves made here. Can’t help but think they have a lot of faith in him as a player and are just looking for the right way to develop physically.

Connor Ronan came back from injury for DAC this weekend with 15 min off the bench. 

Kenny will be delighted to have him back for the Italy game. 


Posted By: Luis Amor Rodriguez
Date Posted: 11 Oct 2019 at 5:43pm
Did well again yesterday in my view, won free-kicks in the attacking third and instrumental in the collective high-press that had Italy on the back-foot.  

Nice shot which could have seen a goal had Parrott or Idah been a little sharper on the follow-up of the keeper's parry.

Very interested to see where his career takes him. I suspect he might fall short of Premier League standard and a second season on loan in Slovakia suggests he isn't going to break into the first team at Wolves. At the same time he's not the kind of player that suits the lower leagues in England.

Could make a decent career for himself in a good European league though, maybe somewhere like the Eredivisie.

Loan at Dunajská Streda has expired so he's returned to Wolves. Hopefully they've another loan lined up for him before the end of the month because it's hard to see him getting many minutes at Wolves, if any.

Can't see him getting a run at Wolves. I'd like to see him play at a higher level than he's been at though, because he's a good player. Don't think he's at all suited to the English lower leagues though.

He's 22 in a couple of months so I would think it's time to look at a serious run in a team. 

I think he's a good player so hopefully can find games.

Yep, himself, Coventry and Molumby have been excellent for the 21's.
Now CC has a loan we can hope he gets good minutes in for the rest of the season.
Really hope Ronan gets likewise somewhere up from the Slovakian league.

Really pleased he's got this move for the rest of the season, he's a really good player and I think he'll get some game time here.

It would have been a bit of a disaster had he just stayed at wolves for the rest of the season. Now he's going to get that all important competitive experience for a lad his age.

No not really.

He'll be playing with a number of other players from the 21's who also went on loan with an opportunity to impress their parent clubs.

Wes' move to League 2 got me thinking about Ronan.

A type of player we rarely have and I'm curious to see where the new season finds him.
We also lack such a #10 in the senior squad (I know we may have Byrne and do like him as a player but far from proven) and I'd love to think Ronan could get a decent loan (Champ level or on the continent) that could put him into contention for a senior call-up, sooner rather than later.

If he stuck in the Wolves reserves, or loaned to L1 again, then you have to imagine he's no better an option that Byrne.

I can see Ronan making it (full international and possible Premier League player) but may have to take the long route like Wes. Spell in Slovakia restored some confidence and Blackpool stint was better than Portsmouth and Walsall loans. 
I think he's a cracking player and want to see him do well.

It's really hard to predict how his career is going to go, he has really impressed me for the 21s anytime I have seen him play but I don't think he will make it in the PL anytime soon anyway. Would definitely like to see him go to a European league. If he did and got regular game time I think he could find himself in the senior squad fairly quickly.

What's the problem?  He hasn't at International level or a level approaching it.
Neither has Ronan so this is not a dig at Byrne who'd I'd love to see push on, but playing LOI is not pushing on, regardless of how much we'd like it to be.

I'm happy to see Byrne in the squad and even get game-time as he brings something different, but to  suggest he is anything but unproven at this level is farcical.

Standard for young Irish players...surprised it took him so long to get into the injury-groove!

Shame thought as he was getting regular games.
Hopefully he recovers fast (didn't think a metatarsel was 4-5 months?) and can get going somewhere better than Swiss Div 2 next season.

Slovakian 1st division, Swiss 2nd division, little impression made at several clubs down the divisions in England.

He's 23 years old. He'd want to kick on if he's going to achieve what Irish fans thought him capable of.

Comparisons to late starters like Wes could be made. But Wes pretty much hit the ground running straight away when he did move to England. So not totally valid.

I'm not losing sleep anyway. He'd be England's if he was tearing it up at Wolves.

Wes didn’t even hit the ground running at Norwich. Still hoping he’ll be a late developer, Wolves evidently hoping the same. He’s nowhere near our squad right now though.

5 months is a long time for a metatarsal, no?

Given Wolves links with Grasshoppers he'll more than likely be back over again once fit. Seyi Olofinjana who looked after players out on loan from Wolves is Grasshoppers new sporting director.

So hopefully they finish first but their form lately could see them finish second and into the promotion-relegation playoff.

I've only seen hi play for the u21s and by and large I didn't really think he was that great. 

As said, at 23 you get a clearer picture as to where players are and he's likely going to be released at Wolves.

I would say league1 could be his level but I'd be very happy to be proved wrong.


Posted By: You Tell Me
Date Posted: 13 May 2021 at 4:32pm
Wolves have given him a long contract - he still has another three full years on it which takes him to 26 - so they're giving him every chance. But at the same time it is noticeable that he is 23 now and hasn't made huge progress. He has seemed to do reasonably well in each of his loan spells, including the one at Blackpool in League 1 last year, but he has never really stood out enough to make you think he'll make it at Wolves.

I think he'll have a decent enough career and maybe win a few caps, but there's little so far to suggest that he'll ever be an important player for us.

Wouldnt be the worst move to see him go back there next season in the top flight.

He was a mainstay of the Grasshoppers team that got promoted as champions to the Swiss premier league.

Had he stayed, and but for his injury, you might expect him to have continued in that role for Grasshoppers this season in their Premier League - not a bad standard, given results in Europe and a smattering of their players at Euro 2020 and throughout other national squads. 

Any time he played for Kenny's U21s a couple of years back, you could see his quality.

He should get over the metatarsal injury soon enough and hopefully get a loan back to Grasshoppers or similar.  

His future may not lie immediately in the PL with Wolves.  However, that's unsurprising given how difficult it is for young players to break through now.  A better model is Josh Cullen going to Anderlecht before being seriously considered as an Ireland regular. 

I'd be hopeful of Ronan continuing in the same vein when he's over his injury, and becoming a senior international in the next few years - in a position where we badly need players.

Well in fairness to him he has shown he is not afraid of going further afield to further his career having now spent time in Slovakia and Switzerland. As you said, he is the presice kind of player we could do with and Kenny seemed to be a big fan. He is 23 now, could do with getting a permanent move somewhere and kicking on a level if he has ambitions of playing for the senior team, I can't imagine he will be hanging around to play u23s football with Wolves.

McGrath is in Portugal with the team tonight, I doubt he's on the move unless a serious offer has come in all of a sudden as the likes of Hourihane stayed behind to sort out his move with Randolph being left out to sort his.

I dont follow St Mirren or Scottish football all that closely but does McGrath not play mostly out wide for them? Livescore usually have him wide right and I know from his time at Dundalk he played there a lot.

Looked to have got very well, their fans seemed to have rated him anyway from what I read on Twitter during games and he played in 30 of 32 games he was available for. Missed their last 2 games having fractured his metatarsal though. Think hes still out with it for another few weeks.

Seems to have done OK in most of his loan moves - was popular with the Blackpool support also, and did alright in Slovakia.

But it seems like his loans are getting worse each time. Blackpool would have been League 1 at the time, then the Swiss second division, albeit a well known club. Now one of the weaker SPL sides. I'd say he'll do well again, but he doesn't seem to be progressing in the game.

I think I was fairly clear regarding Randolph when I posted:

"If Randolph hasn't made himself unavailable I would say that's bordering on hugely disrespectful towards him from Kenny."

If Randolph has made himself unavailable then that's obviously fine. We still don't know for definite either way other than a suggestion of a club move from Dan McDonnell, but hopefully that's all it is.

Kenny has no credit at all in the bank given results in the past year so his cheerleaders are going to have to accept that, until he shows at least some capability as an international manager (which he hasn't done yet), odd selections like that will raise questions. His omission of Randolph and Clark was a concern to begin with. Kenny simply can't make any more mistakes if he wants to keep his job past this autumn, that's the reality of it now.

We expecting a move there so before tomorrow night?



Grasshopper had him playing deeper as a 6 mostly. If McGrath moves they may well play him as a 10, or have him deeper in midfield alongside Alan Power if McGrath stays.

Starts today for St Mirren along side McGrath.

looks like McGrath on the right with Ronan in the middle.

How did the game go for both of them, anyone know?

The odd thing for me about Conor Ronan is getting used to a player who has two first names..

If Flynn Clarke ever declares for us we could arrange some kind of swap deal between them.

Scores his first goal for St Mirren. Look to be playing a 3-4-2-1 with McGrath and Ronan behind the striker.

That's a strikers finish from Ronan. Good first touch, delays the shot and finds the bottom corner. Good by McGrath to turn Brown and pick out Ronans run.

Super goal.
Fair play to him by going to St Mirren, playing week in week out - he'll soon reap the benefits of this.

If we're to attempt the 3-4-3 / 3-4-2-1 shape again as we did with Idah, Connolly and Parrott vs Azerbijan Id really like to see it with McGrath and Ronan as the 2 in the hole behind the striker as they were playing today. Really looked like it could work, they've a good understanding of one another and how to pick those key passes out.
