    I would think it may also be possible that we had already targeted Ireland as an area that we thought could prove prosperous and therefor deliberately set out to recruit someone with Morling's experience and connections. Given TB's history of running successful businesses i suspect these things are planned rather than fortuitous (or otherwise).

      Perhaps, but I have to say that Man Utd, Liverpool etc. have been there for generations, Ireland is made up of the usual youth teams, that nearly all have a links/funding from long standing Premier League clubs they tend to have first dibs on the very best (if there are any).

      Also worth noting that Ireland as with most small countries outside of their very best players very quickly fall off a cliff to mediocrity, you only have to look at their international youth teams, half their team might not even be associated to a professional club, it isnt virgin territory.

      Anyway I was told pre our new training centre etc. that Bloom wondered why doesnt Brighton just recruit young players released from Premier League clubs, which is even more depressing than the current bias ;)

      Two more goals for our hot* little Republic of Ireland striker today (9th and 23rd minutes) as the Irish beat the Faroe Islands 4-0 in the first of three matches in Cyprus in the Elite Qualifying round of the 2017 UEFA U-17 European Championships. Further matches on Friday (against Slovakia) and Monday (against the hosts).

      Certainly appears to be a prospect.

      May I just mention how much I and others on here appreciate all the time you spend keeping us informed of the developing players.

      That is all

      Carry on that man.
