Delighted he's getting O'Dowda involved. Anytime I've seem him live he's been class and I'd fully expect him to move up the leagues this summer's. Obviously won't go to France but good for the future. On the same token it's strange he hasn't gotten Byrne involved

Think I heard that Alan Browne was invited to train with the squad maybe Byrne was too.

Delighted to see Callum O'Dowda given recognition. Looks a terrific player!

Shame about Jack Byrne not being in it tho.

No matter what anyone says, there are a handful of players in the squad who offer much less than Byrne.

Wouldnt be bringing Byrne to France but I'd liked to have seen him get a proper opportunity to show what he can do at least.
Matt Cooper: What do you think is different this time?
John Delaney: Well we can understand our manager which is great. I tell you what, his English was always great when we were discussing the wages!

Because he's played around 10 games in league 1.

Absolutely delighted to see O'Dowda called up, class oozes from this guy would have no problem in a lower PL side or high championship side coming from league 2. 

I'd of liked to off seen Crawley called up also, but he's barely played needs to make an impact somewhere playing first team football.

I'd of liked to off seen Mason or Scott Hogan called up for the training squad as id imagine one or both of them will be in the squad that goes to Serbia.

No chance of much experimentation with the strikers with the squad for Holland game. With the euros only around the corner the most important thing is to make sure that your stalwarts are there, getting minutes on the pitch and getting chances in front of goal.

The next squad Ireland pick after the Euros will be very different to what we are used to I would say.

Dont know much about O'Dowda but MON must think highly of him to bring him along. Possibly sees him as a key contributor on the next campaign? Saying that though MON will probably cut him before the squad meets up.
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes an even bigger man to laugh at that man.

A quick search on twitter 'Callum O'Dowda' and you will see numerous folks who have no idea who O'Dowda is Dead

Same crowd who have no idea who Scott Hogan is id suspect, don't look past the glorious Premier League.

think its fair enough that this squad is focused on Euro's rather than blooding players for the future. on that basis u would have to assume that all players called up including odowda (who i have never seen play) have some chance of making the squad.

re dan crowley.....he probably can't be in the squad anyway as paperwork to change countries takes time (if he has even decided to join us). 

re inviting lads to train with them i.e. jack byrne - at least he is being straight up and saying "i dont see u making the euro squad" (not saying i agree or otherwise) but u are the future.

will be an interesting squad when finalised. needs to have a couple of utility players and then a couple that can give u something different.....and maybe something new ie odowda?

It's not me it's you:-)

Bet they know when to use the word have though.

Think it has all come a bit soon for Hogan, another month or two of form half as good and he couldn't have been ignored. Would liked to have seen a new forward in though, we are lacking options. Well done to O'Dowda!
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

TObe fair, there's only so many hours in the day. If I started following the Championship the same way I follow other leagues, god knows what would suffer.

Great to see ODowda and McGoldrick involved. Hopefully there will be a few more names involved in the training sessions

Danny Rogers won't be far away, depending were he goes in the summer he was named in the team of the year. This is definitely Givens, Fordes last hurrah. 

Hogan, Forrester, Byrne, Mason, O'Dowda, Browne, Crawley, Cullen, Toner  all have a big part to play over the next few years not forgetting lads like Kiernan who could see themselves replacing the likes McShane/Pearce in the squads . O'Dowda/Hogan the two that could easily start v Serbia. 

Whats the story with Redmond, he's been relegated (again) surely we have to start chasing this guy he hasn't ruled us out either not forgetting Paddy Bamford, Callum Wilson. Havent seen much of Sean Scannell to even make a case for him.
