    Made his U-21 debut today and got a goal & an assist, after being named POTS in the U-23 Prem earlier in the month. Still only 18, really excited to see if Potter gives him a chance.

    Fair enough, he's come on and you'd say he's their second brightest prospect behind Obafemi.

    My point still stands though overall, in that they really aren't producing players at the same rate of countries they should be. There's very few young Irish players playing at a decent level, and I think long term there prospects are looking bleak. They look a long way off producing a team similar to the one that last qualified for a world cup.

    Naa he’s scored more in the prem than obafemi already, Connolly is the brighter prospect imo

    Well it's obviously really early to say, but again it's not really the point I'm making.
