Ireland signing for us is somewhat reminiscent of Stephen Hunt who played for the Cosmos in 1977-1978. He was only 21 when he came over here and actually had a very good career after he went back to England:

He is Irish, and so am I. Last time I checked that is Europe =) Also, 2.5 million here is much less than 2.5 euro's. But, I still believe that Ireland will not be here; its speculation on everyone's end. just my opinion.

someone above said 2.5m is 2.5 m (and it's not.) But it looks like the post is hearing the same thing. They don't think Ireland is going to pan out! Raul from schlake instead. Let the new speculation begin haha..

"But multiple sources have told the Post they are unlikely to acquire Stephen Ireland appears unlikely to come"

Double negative!! That means we ARE getting him!

I am sick of this win now at all costs attitude by Red Bull. We should be going after a DP thats 25 or younger that we can build a team around and then be successful for 4/5 years. The way they are building the team, we will have to turn over our core players in 1-2 years time. It is not a method for success or winning trophies in America.


RBNY tried to get Stephen Ireland (who is 26 years old), but the league blocked it. We have to pay even bigger bucks for someone in the prime of their career and almost always a huge transfer fee. MLS just doesn't allow for moves like that at this time.
