David Meyler: Hull midfielder training with the Republic of Ireland

Republic of Ireland midfielder David Meyler is hoping to mark his 24th birthday by capping a memorable season with an international appearance at Wembley on Wednesday.

Meyler will have his whole family in London on Wednesday evening for his big day, and having helped Hull to regain their Premier League status, he is desperate to play for his country in the friendly against England.

He said: "It's even more special because it's my birthday. I'm turning 24 when we play England at Wembley - what more could you want, especially after the season I have had?

"I know quite a few of the lads who will be there as well so it's like a dream really, and hopefully I get the opportunity to play.

"My family are all coming over so it would be capped off with my birthday. It would be outstanding."

Meyler's decision to leave Sunderland for the Tigers in January after a successful loan spell paid off in style when Steve Bruce's men clinched promotion on the final day of the Championship season.

He added: "I remember I sat down with my dad and said, 'Steve Bruce wants me to sign', and he said, 'Well, if you go to the Championship, make sure next year you are playing in the Premier League'.

"That's the target we set out and we have been fortunate enough to have succeeded. A lot of it is down to the manager and we are delighted we are back there.

"I am over the moon. It's been an outstanding seven months and I am delighted to be here as well with an opportunity to play in these international games."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
