Sorry to be picky, but is O'Hare Irish? Would have thought he'd be first choice in their squad, if he was..

I think he’s one of those that’s eligible for both- England and Ireland due to the grandparent rule

I honestly hate this type of stuff.

I want us to stay under the radar.

Don't mention how good Robins is.

Don't mention Vik.

Don't mention Dabo.

Don't mention O'Hare.

Don't mention the fantastic style of football we play.

In fact, don't mention us at all.

Grandparent is I think. Could be wrong.
You may be right mate. Would have thought if he did have Irish Grandparents, he'd have been in that squad ages ago. Not exactly brimming with attacking talent are they?

Thought it had been explored, and it turns out he's not any bit Irish? Could be wrong mind...

Pretty sure but not 100%, google seems to think so as well.. would have thought he’d be nailed on to declare for Ireland as it’s unlikely he’s going to get called up for England? Who knows though

Agree 99%. The only benefit is that teams will fear our growing reputation and sometimes games are won before the first whistle. Who wants to come to fortress CBS right now?

If I am looking for another positive, perhaps we might be more able to tempt a good loan signing in January?

Worked for Leicester the year they won the premier league, no one expected them to stay in contention for long, and it was only in the last few weeks that the pundits started to have a meltdown about them.

Title contenders ? Of course we are, joint second so why not. There will be bad days as last week but at the moment we are winning one in two games that’s 99 points+ there’s a few around us who will think the same so why not us.

When I was growing up half the families in our street were Irish catholic with massive families in Council houses, as they were called then, so some potential Irish international there, if they hadn't all pissed it up too much. I remember when I lived in Coundon some years ago there were loads of blokes and lads in Celtic shirts which slowly disappeared over time. Still a few diehards, I gather. Also Irish flags during the world cup. Not as many as England but a significant number. I walked the dog to the Wedge recently and there was a Coventry West Ham supporters flag! I had to put up with that over the years as my wife and sister in law were both from West Ham families.

I'm sure he's a Paddy. I think his family lived next door to my mam's in Blarney Street, Cork!

it’s not County Coundin for nothing.
