Not that any of you give the slightest fig, but Jack Grealish has finally removed his buttock crevice from the international footballing fence and declared that he intends to be as regarded as English from this point on.

The 20-year-old Aston Villa winger was born in Solihull but has represented the Republic of Ireland at every age since Under-17 level, barring the senior side.

As of today, and as confirmed by Villa, Grealish has opted to commit his international future to England once and for all…

We were going to make a joke at this point, but Gunnerblog beat us to it…

Anyway, we’d like to be the first to congratulate Grealish on his future entirely nondescript, 7-cap England career, but we fear we’re not particularly quick out of the blocks on that front either.

    Why did he decide to play for Ireland in the first place?

    He was born in England. He is, let’s be honest, English.

    I’m not a fan of the whole parents / grandparents rule, even though many non-Northern Irish born players have graced our team.

    It’s tricky if you were born in a certain country and then moved around a bit in your young years, I can understand there being some conflict of national pride there, but Jack’s an Englishman born & bred.

    Hmm.

    You’re such a piece of shit Chris, condemming this hard working and extremely talented young lad’s career before it’s even started. Stop being such a smarmy, condescending cunt. What have you ever done with your life? Go suck a dick.
