Talk about suiting arguments 😂.

Dunne and Keane liked a drink. But so did Robbie and duff. But that was the norm then.

What parrott is flaunting isn’t the norm even today. If anyone can’t realise that, they’re off their heads. That’s not even mentioning the fact the other lads did it on the pitch even in their teens when having beers. Parrott has done nothing yet on the pitch. I actually give up giving the above comparisons 😂

The optics of Parrott's association with these lads aren't great to say the least.

You brought Dunne into the conversation. As I said, his social life nearly cost him a career at the top level. Luckily, he saw sense and eventually managed to get his head screwed on.

Hopefully, Parrott can show the dedication and professionalism (of which we haven't heard is in doubt yet, despite Mourinho insisting he "isn't ready") needed to match his undoubted potential.

nobody said to write him off. But my money is he’ll go the stokes/ Ireland route unless he cops  on. Mourinho who knows him better than us on here hasn’t been happy with him off the pitch.

We’ll see - big 2 years - hope he cops on and does it on the pitch anyway

So you're writing him off then LOL

Hopefully he can prove Mourinho wrong. Would be very interested to know if Mourinho's criticism is warranted or not.

He was pictured drinking with Sean Little who was shot dead, Sean's friends were also shot dead.

Nobody is writing him off as a lost cause.

So what, if you're friends with someone who is killed that makes you somehow "tainted by association"? LOL Come on now, have you ever heard the likes

I'm not going to lie, it pissed me off reading the contemporary accounts of how Robbie Keane would "ingeniously" get around Trapattoni's alcohol ban while Andy Reid was made into a scapegoat for messing around with a guitar. Which one is supposed to be setting an example to the rest of the group?

I have my qualms with Trapattoni and O'Neill but they definitely fostered a more competitive and professional atmosphere in the group. I sincerely hope that the more senior players don't play on Stephen Kenny's lack of experience and polite nature like they did with Kerr and Staunton.

I actually don’t think so.

Compare him to the really good Irish players in the last 20 years who showed potential at an early age -  Keane, Dunne, etc.

Vast majority of them seemed to have their heads screwed on - seemed to retire with decent bank accounts, etc.

Parrott reminds me of stokes or Stephen Ireland. Obviously Mourinho spotted a problem too. Big 2 years for him. Really hope he does it and has the right attitude off the pitch as by all reports, he has decent talent. Looking forward to watching millwall to see how he does 
When those lads mentioned were 17 there was no social media and the money for lads coming through was much smaller. We have no idea what Robbie Keane was or wasn't up to, for example.
He is friends with the son of a Kinahan, possibly not the best company to keep but the overreaction is hilarious. 

Ah here - social media or not - Keane, duff, Dunne, etc had their heads screwed on as young lads and through their whole career (I don’t think social media destroyed stokes or Ireland’s career). 

That’s the difference - let’s not make excuses here. There’s alarm bells going off - Mourinho I hinted at it. The lad should cop on and keep his head down. Tbh even if it’s all innocent and that he doesn’t realise the attention these photos may bring on him - that’s even worse and for me indicates he mightn’t have the temperament to make it.
Had they? Dunne, as has been said, certainly didn't. He was bringing his mates over on the beer. This wasn't just liking a drink, this was, I believe, being told by Kevin Keegan to either cop on or you won't have a future.
Robbie, with the greatest of respect to him and his achievements, was looking an eejit on social media not long ago. Sure, bizarre films of himself in the gym and the like might not be the worst thing in the world, but to be managing to look a pillock in his late thirties leads me to believe he probably wouldn't have been great at 17 either. He has always enjoyed the limelight, not that there's a huge amount wrong with that, especially once it is backed up.
Duff seems a sort of a boring chap and reasonably level headed.

Regardless of all that, the likelihood here is that this Kinahan lad is probably hanging on to Troy rather than the other way around. I would be fairly certain that a 17 year old with a wad of cash isn't going to be short of companions. He certainly needs to be careful with who they are, but it really seems like people are getting all Helen Lovejoy over very little. I would nearly love to see him caught with a posse of Russian hookers and a kilo of what made Colombia famous just to see the reaction.LOL
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.

There's as much chance of there being cocaine as coffee in anything you get out of that place.

Well actually yes. If I was associating 100% innocently with someone who was involved in or ended up with head vents because of criminal activities, I would expect to be on the radar of for example, the Gardai. If I was also a fairly well known footballer or indeed any other reasonably known personality, then I would expect to be subject to scrutiny in the press and/or elsewhere. Rightly or wrongly it goes with the territory. Regardless, Id personally be giving such individuals a wide berth anyway for fear of ending up another innocent gangland victim.
