A Sort Of Homecoming

Sunderland's finest rent-a-gob, March 21st 2007, after Liam Miller is left out of an Ireland squad:

'It definitely doesn't help Liam Miller. If he was (from) further up the
country, I'm pretty sure he would be in the Irish squad. I don't just say these
things. There's no doubt in my mind that Liam Miller being from Cork certainly
doesn't help him.' Asked if Cork-born players had to play better than everybody
else to get selected for the national squad, he replied: 'You've hit the nail on
the head. Without a doubt.'
February 27th 2008:
'Sunderland midfielder Liam Miller has been told he can leave the club
after being put on the transfer list. Miller becomes the seventh player to be
placed on the transfer list in recent weeks.'

That anti-Cork bias is spreading. Does this make Royston a self-hating Corkman?
