I've said that in the past about countless players who were/are hedging their bets or were honest in their reasons for declaring for us.

If you can show me an example of me saying something like that about Gary Breen, Kevin Kilbane or Tony Grealish then I'll gladly eat humble pie, but it doesn't have much relevance otherwise.

I could easily point to all the apocryphal stories about lads like McGeady or Houghton declaring for Ireland, when the real reasons for declaring were less emotional and more pragmatic.

At the end of the day, there are literally dozens and dozens of players I can think of who could've chosen England or Ireland and chose England.

It's easy for someone like Simon Cox or Liam Lawrence [just throwing out random names] to say they would've always played for Ireland when they would never have got within an arse's roar of playing for England.

All roads lead to Ciaran Clark!
You asked if I'd be anyone from history, fact or fiction, dead or alive:
I said "I'd be Tony Cascarino, circa 1995"

Did he not remove all his Irish based tweets and pictures?

The explanation for that withdrawal just happening to be the exact kind of thing you'd say when there was no logical reason but know that there are many people out there who are happy to swallow any amount of BS fed to them.

Not really surprised the games I've seen him play he has a good touch but doesn't try hard enough. 

Needs to go back to the u23s for a year.

19 year old Conor Grant scored his first goal for Rochdale tonight. It was a 2 yard tap in but the SSN announced made a point of saying he deserved it because he had been excellent all night, which is good to hear for our Under 21s.
