Brilliant stuff.
Smoking and drinking on television, the health fascists would faint if they saw it.

#998

He has played underage for England and his instagram pic has him in an England jersey.


#999

Born and raised in Dublin, started playing with tolka at the age of 5, moved to Kevin’s at 7 and signed by arsenal at 11, played for the Irish u16s before deciding to switch to the English u16s in the same year. Played twice for the English u17s before being dropped last August…

There’s also this

“Born to Nigerian parents, the 16-year-old has played for both the England and Republic of Ireland youth sides but told the Irish Times last year that he felt a closer connection to the nation of his birth.”

Strange…

Teenage prodigy? Dropped by england u17s. Arsenal willingly selling him. Hmmm. Suspect he’s the latest irish player to be hyped way beyond his ability.


#1001

To be fair, apparently he turned down a new contract at Arsenal.


#1002

Oh yea? Why would he do that unless he knew he was going nowhere there.


#1003

He seems to reckon he’s got a chance of getting first team football at Celtic fairly soon, which obviously would have been a lot more of a task at arsenal.


#1004

exactly. Look hope it works out for him, just if he was a “prodigy” he’d make the grade at Arsenal. Good luck to the kid anyways, god kno s we could use a decent striker


#1005

Makes his choice of England more bizarre. Eligible for them through residency only. Born in dublin plays for Celtic plays for England, hmmm.


#1006

Is Bamford worth a realistic shot? 6 goals in his last 7 games for Leeds or something like that


#1007

A very well-spoken young man. Maybe get him on the rugby team instead.


#1008

McCarthy has spoken to him alright. Waiting on him now.


#1009

Mick hoping to meet with Bamford at some stage this week he’s spoken to him since Friday night. Would be a welcome addition. Not exactly spoilt for choice with goalscorers


#1010

Jogi Loew has told Hummels,j Boateng and T Mueller he won t be picking them for Germany anymore. No messing around there. Mind you I think he s wrong about Mueller, still a good player imho.


#1011

Should’ve done it at least two years ago. I’m amazed he’s still in charge.


#1012

Some scapegoating going on sure but Mueller is still a top player . Loew has had a good run the dfb should have got rid of him after the wc.


#1013

Mueller has been ineffective for a good while now. He’s like that lad in Mayo.


#1014

Agree a really great player and even though past his best the last 2 years still real quality
