I'm sure Joel is happy being one of the 22 players picked for his country and will have the opportunity to mix with slme players at a different level to those at Oxford. Not playing but gaining valuable experience is a positive, especially whilst not leaving us significantly weaker whilst away.shouldnt be picked for Northern Ireland really then.
Lets hope he doesnt celebrate the same way Gavin Whyte did when he won a NI football awardAnd now he's won a gong.
Isn’t he not getting a game partly due to being called up though? I’d imagine he’d be playing if he was hereIn fairness, he's barely getting a game for us. Hopefully being around the International scene will support his development and he comes back better ready for first team action with us.
Bit random but does anyone know who manages our U21s? Chris Allen is the only name I can really think of but not heard anything about him or the U21s for a while. Think Blackmore-Such does the U18s (?).
I thought this question was on the fans forum about a month ago or so. I am sure Niall McWilliams confirmed Chris Allen was still at the club.The Chris Allen mystery continues. Seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth. No reference in the piece on the website as to who will be managing them.
