You can name at least one, he literally plays for us!

Huh?

Oh...you mean Paddy! He plays for that lot north of the border though, doesn't he? Not Blanco's beloved green shirts.

If memory serves the Republic are going through a pretty bad patch lately, aren't they? Being a ROI international isn't exactly a hallmark of quality these days. Not like the heady times when they could call on the likes of Ray Houghton and Andy Townsend. 😉

Lumley?

The one and only time I'll be itk- Lad fell out with Gardner and bowyer after they got him to sign a new deal with the promise of first team opportunity and they never followed through.  Giv

Thing that’s *** me off with this Tav talk is the disrespect from our fans on social media and forums, more so social media but I have seen comments today like ‘ I will drive him there’ in regards to

Correct on the first point @AnglianRed but wrong on the second. The Republic are about to rise high in the international world again at long last. A very young vibrant squad now who all want to play for the shirt. Exciting times ahead for us

Personally I wouldn't for those very reasons, leadership involves setting standards and ruthlessly enforcing them as Beckham discovered with Fergie, nobody is bigger than the Club.

You wouldn’t sign Phil foden or even grealish?

Deary me, how negative are folk. Let's give the lad a chance. He's young. Would you not sign Grealish or Foden? Both have behaved terribly over the last year.

Let's see what Wilder can do with him. He looked great in his first PL games. Hopefully we can rebuild him. Likely to be back up to Watmore and Sprorar so low risk but gives us options. Look forward to seeing him at Mansfield next week.

Actually I would not want Grealish in a Boro shirt. Doesn't add much to England either from what I've seen. Seems to think playing football means falling over and trying to win free kicks.

I mean he must be pretty decent if City wanted him, but I must miss all the good stuff he does. 🤷‍♂️

Cringeworthy? Why would that make you cringe? Fair enough saying that you don’t beleive it but making you cringe? 🤣 like reading war and peace reading that post. 

Gullible naivety about assaulting people tends to make me cringe, reading someone defending it definitely makes me cringe. Sorry about the length of post if you struggled with it.

you claimed not to know a single player from a home nation though!

I hadn't heard of Connolly before this so the fairest thing is probably to suspend judgement. It's just that whenever I see a manager taking on players with behavioural issues because they think they can sort them out, it rarely goes well. It's one thing taking on someone like Bamba, Watmore or Taylor on a short-term contract to see if they can get over physical injuries or lack of a club but Connolly looks more like the Ravel Morrison type: plenty of ability but not the right mind-set to realise it. 

At the moment, Connolly looks to be following the same path as every talented young player who is going to fail to make it. If we do sign him, I hope I'm proven wrong but the pattern he has followed up to now is pretty depressingly predictable.

I wasn’t on about what happened at Leeds. I meant what people say about them in there home town.

I’m prepared to believe that Scott and / or Wilder have had a proper discussion with Stephen Kenny and / or Keith Andrews regarding the player and his attitude / ability with ROI, just as I expect them to have spoken with Graham Potter at Brighton. However I accept that a 15 minute Google search is equally effective research. Probably.

Absolutely not, assuming we could afford them there are plenty of other Footballers who manage to focus on their standards of Professionalism. 

Can’t believe what I’m reading. 🤯🤯🤯

Nice try! 😜

My exact words were "I don't take any notice of the other home nations".

I do take notice of some of the goings-on at the Boro though and when you mentioned someone who plays for us, it jogged my memory that Paddy had spent some time away with NI.

Why do you think those things have been said and take George Friend just as one example where things haven't been said about him?

    • John Ruddy been officially let go by Wolves it seems, I wouldn't be totally against him signing. Was always a Good Championship level keeper for both Wolves and Norwich. I read something regarding George Friend a few pages back the other day and I would be totally all for it, would add some great leadership and the fans would surely be right behind him still and as a left sided centre back I think he could do a real job for us even if just as a back up option. Also heard the Rhodes rumors and I personally believe he is a perfect Wilder Striker, such a hard worker and a great finisher. Which leads me to my final former Boro player, Ben Gibson. I again would love to see him return and think he could flourish in the left sided centre back role for Wilder's system. I do think the best options for those outside centre back roles are more suited to a full back converted/secondary centre back but at Sheff United Wilder didn't always have that option and was still greatly successful. If Fry was to leave Gibson would be great in the middle of the 3 of course.  
    • Very strange move, but apparently it's a three-year contract and for good money. He'll finish is career mid-table in the Championship.
    • Nothing mate. Just a hunch feeling. 
    • Heard something more or just speculating?
