O'Neill Confirms McGoldrick in His Plans
Friday, 22nd Aug 2014 17:18

Republic of Ireland boss Martin O’Neill says Blues striker David McGoldrick is very much in his plans for the future. The 26-year-old confirmed his qualification for Ireland earlier this year.

“He is definitely a talented lad and no question he is definitely on the radar,” O’Neill said after naming a 36-man provisional squad for two games in September which included Blues Daryl Murphy and Conor Sammon.

He says he has “no doubt” that McGoldrick will play a part during Ireland’s European Championships campaign, although the opening game in Georgia next month will come too early for him.

McGoldrick is currently understood to be waiting for his Irish passport with O’Neill confirming that “paperwork” still has to be completed before he can be called up but added, “where there’s a will there’s a way.”

I'd fully endorse McGoldrick getting international football under his belt... just as long as he doesn't get thwacked and ruled out for another six months!

Excellent news from an Irish perspective now that Robbie Keane is near the end of his career. He was very unlucky because O'Neill was watching him on the day he got injured against Blackpool. He put Daryl in the squad instead.

See Daryl ( and Conor!) are in the large squad for the friendly against Oman. I wonder will Daryl get into the Euro 2016 squad the following week against Georgia.

Could potentially be a useful player for Ireland during the qualifiers. Not got too many quality strikers

That 'plastic paddy' thing bugs me charsfield.
What's the English equivalent?
Surely john Barnes, terry butcher and the infamous Owen Hargreaves should get a moniker too?
And that's before we talk about rugby, cricket (how many Irish men are on the England team?) or even tennis!

Is ' paddy' not , at best derogatory , at worst, a racist term ? I didn't realise we had Malky McKay posting on here.

Be nice to have McGoldrick with a few international caps under his belt. Hopefully will Bosch in a hat trick today to improve his chances of a call.
