I really couldn't care, if that is what he wants, he is fully entitled to do it. But no-one in the world will convince me otherwise than he only played for Ireland at underage because he couldn't get a game for England or didn't think he'd get into the English set up. Made a nice bit of money out of that, it's worked out well for the English lad. And the only way the decision was hard for him was in the backlash he'd get, once he was hitting the big time he was never going with us. Anyway, Mr. Ultra-Conservative Manager O'Neill could have capped him early before all the brou-ha-ha and he would have jumped at the chance and wouldn't have a chance to change now. But O'Neill would stick with poor quality journeymen over taking a chance on trying to build a team up from young players.
