People seem to miss the fact that he’s 18/19 and has already impressed in his few Premier League opportunities.

Is it a goal and assist in three league appearances? 

I’m not saying he’ll be the next Robbie Keane, but he could certainly turn into a decent striker. 

Who’s the last Irish striker to score in the Premier League at such a young age? 

He's very quick btw. Looks like he has the pace of Shane Long from what we've seen of him.

Also his finishing looks to be as bad as longs. Early days but raw pace seems to be his main asset 

LOLLOL
 

And the fact he has no problem getting served in an over 25s boozer.

Bet he doesn't!

The next two games are absolutely "must win" and we already have Evans and Cathcart certain to play CB in them, with Flanagan (Sunderland) or the hugely experienced McAuley/Hughes as back up.

And if we're still in the running after that, the following games are vs Netherlands and Germany, and I really can't see that he'd risk a novice like Ballard against either of those - he could get taken apart.

He would surely be eligible for the Poles too?
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.

Agree with this, and I'd add a few more to that list. Bamford might have lots of 1st team experience, he just doesn't seem to want to play for us. I'll admit that promising lads on the cusp of 1st team football may not live up to our expectations (see Clifford), but I think it's better for the team overall to have faith in the lads who show some fecking interest in playing for Ireland.

Much more interested in tracking the development of lads already playing for us. That goes for the Irish-born lads like Ebosele, Idah, Connolly, O'Connor, Sotona, Power as well as the Irish-eligible ones like Connell, Everitt and Johansson.

I beg to differ mon frere.

He will be keen to impress our new Generalissmo "El Beardo" Clarke.

I have no desire or interest in Bamford representing us, too much fannying about nd not a peep out of him. Long, McGoldrick, Robinson, Maguire and  Obafemi will do for now until the promising attacking youngsters we have hopefully break through

Quote “Well, that’s Redmond gone.” 

“Dick?” replied McCarthy, in reference to the Irish kitman most famous for being snapped in a Superman costume after Ireland beat Bosnia to qualify for Euro 2016. 

“No, Nathan, he’s been picked for England!”, was Keane’s response. 



“Well thank f**k it’s not Dick, so long as he’s not going
