Not sure that he was born here, but his dad is from Waterford, his uncle is a regular at The RSC, he’s 100% committed to us according to him, I’ll try find out more




O’Neill was brought up in Ealing, west London. His parents and his four grandparents are Irish, and he has family in Kerry, Waterford, and Galway.

Seems a good shout that he wont transition over to England....

Reads like his mother might be Irish born and from Galway and his father the son of a couple from Kerry and Waterford? That would be handy. The Irish mammy has been helpful of late. 

I don't think any of Grealish, Rice or Crowley had grandparents left in Ireland- although Grealish was good enough to bring his across when collecting his under 21 award.

Grealish and Crowley have the exact same backgrounds; one plays for England and one played for England. Both played GAA and visited Ireland as children. There's no indication that O'Neill wants to play for England but there's no indication England have tried or will try to select him. As Joey Tribbiani would say, it's a moo point talking about it until such time as he's playing at PL level, for that's what he'd need to be doing to get selected at seniors for them, and as strong as they already are at U21, he'd need to be breaking into Fulham's team and establishing himself firmly for them to be considered even at that level.
Forget it, Jake. It's Chinatown.

Nice one.
That's promising, and I retract my take that JC managed him badly or that OF was a bllox LOL

I'm back to giving him the benefit of the doubt and hopefully a good loan in Jan can get him featuring higher in our U21 plans come March.
 

If you didn't know he was talking about Okoflex it's something you would say word for word about Elbouzedi. A player that couldn't get games at L1/L2 level going further afield and being really well suited to a continental League. Okoflex is a similar sort of winger except at this point Okoflex looks a good deal more promising. 

I like that Crawford said it you could say this about a good few Irish players they just don't make the effort to go further afield. Cullen deserves huge credit for this.

Not injured the last few weeks, he has played 3 games for the b team since coming back no goals.

Did I read somewhere that his manager at Huddersfield was unhappy with him? Thought I saw something recently re his application or lack of.
If he didn’t try a leg on his West Ham debut at old Trafford, doubt very much he”ll be busting a gut for Huddersfield reserves.

Don't think it was anything to do with application, just that he plum wasn't good enough. Couched in more diplomatic language than that.

Tbf to the lad I'll take that back. All i could find on Google search is that the manager has said it will take time for him to adapt and that his chance will come.

He's 2001 so eligible for sure.
Only coming back from a very bad injury and finding his feet again so is well below where he'd need to be for a return to International duty.

Hopefully come March that will have changed.

Yeah I’d expect Cassidy to be back involved next season after his injuries, no point rushing him

I'm no fan of Crawford's but it seems like reasonable advice and he clearly didn't just dodge the issue.

He wasnt MotM by some distance, the fact that Noel King and the rest of the RTE panel decided to give it to him sums up their knowledge of the game. He's been poor enough over the course of the campaign. Very poor defensively first half yesterday, but the fact the left winger wouldnt track him allowed him a few eye catching moments going forward, he did ok, but no more than that.
