You're wrong there, pfc_blues. North Star was on here just a few weeks back saying that anyone playing in Ireland must be rubbish. There seems little point to me in actually watching the player first before writing him off.

if he really wants to make an impression - I would try to land to the north of Portsmouth harbor in his Flying Boat - and rock up at Gunwharf quays.

landing in Langstone Harbour would be easier - but there is no Wow factor.

Derry manager Kenny Shiels..
Really is a delusional miserable b**st*rd

Derry play better football and at a higher level than pompey.. ROFL

I watch both levels and seriously.. if people think Fleetwood were sh*t when we played them... Derry are playing against teams like Bray -Bray would struggle in National League over here (and i like going to watch Bray!)

Richie Towell's progress is a lesson in the reality of league of ireland football -best player to come out of League for Irealnd for a few years..went to brighton, struggled even at under 23 level adn found a natural level for teh moment at Rotehrham
He will be a good Championship player

From teh bits i have seen, Curtis will be taking a step up if he comes to Pompey
If he makes it i would think he will peak as a mid table Chanpionship player

Looking at a highlight reel on YouTube, he looks a decent height, decent pace and good with both feet. Should be a good signing, although a bit worried they want to keep him all the time they're in Europe, which could leave him without a pre-season.

Yep there's loads.
Duane Holmes, Graham Carey, Josh Morris, Bradley Dack, Otzummer, Marcus Madison. I reckon Jackett would snap your hand off for any of this lot.

The thing is they all cost money, more than we can afford. With our budget and the way Jackett operates we'll always favour young, exciting non league talent over established league 1/championship players. Personally i prefer it.

If we get curtis and he ends up of similar stock to Lowe, we could have a very exciting attack next season. Chuck an experienced hearty midfielder, a playmaker and a good LB and we'll be well within a shout.

And if Curtis (all names start with a capital letter by the way) turns out to be League of Ireland level then we will have another Kabamba on our hands. I agree it is good to see young players come good but it would be nice to see some sort of ambition too. You are correct about our budget, our fantastic owner doesn't want us spending money, it would just be nice to see us attempt to compete at the top.

I am great at parties thanks. I know you're not very good at Geography etc but it also seems you're sh!t at spelling as well. It's Bluetag not blue-tac, but if it passes for your sense of humour and keeps you happy then I'm fine with it.

BTW just because you play for a country it doesn't mean you are of that nationality.
As mentioned ,John Barnes played for England but wasn't English , Andy Townsend etc played for Ireland but weren't Irish, it happens all the time. I just pointed out that Curtis was English, I never stated he couldn't play for Ireland.

If you still can't understand this try Google or ask a nipper, it's not really hard to understand.

Last time I checked being born in England doesn’t make you English. Having done a few google searches of Paddy over here it’s surprisingly quite vague on the birthplaces of his infamous parents.

Hopefully he plays well enough here that he earns himself a nice Wikipedia page to solve this mystery.

Was he actually born in Gibraltar? if so he's Gibraltarian, he will have a Gibraltarian passport. One of the anomalies to this is if one or more parents were British forces he was probably registered British and issued with a British birth certificate as that is what normally happens. Hence children born of British serving personnel abroad can usually declare to play sport for any of the home nations.

Gib is an odd one as he/she would hold a British passport. So in THIS case you can be Gibraltarian by birth but British law.

Well, he flew in and agreed terms, and has flown back to Ireland.
A fee of just over £100,000 was agreed with Derry, but they have not signed off the deal.
The reason being that another club has expessed interest and may pay more.
It seems the Derry management are encouraging an auction for Curtis.
