    Welcome to the Republic of Ireland thread, which started back when Trapattoni was just about to be appointed.
    His stint in charge has gone very well so far and we are confident of reaching the finals.
    All discussion regarding Ireland, players, fixtures, results and the main man Trap himself go into this thread.

    According to bbcsport.co.uk

    Trapattoni set for Republic post

    Giovanni Trapattoni is in line to be the new Ireland manager

    Giovanni Trapattoni is reported to have agreed to become Republic of Ireland
    manager once his contract with Salzburg ends in May.

    The former Italy coach is understood to have agreed in principle to a deal but his
    current club, Red Bull Salzburg, told BBC Sport they would not comment.

    Liam Brady is expected to be part of Trapattoni's backroom team.

    FAI chief executive John Daleney said the name of the new manager would be
    announced on Wednesday.

    Trapattoni is reported to have met the three-man panel set up to find a new
    manager in Austria on Sunday.

    Delaney confirmed on Monday that a board of management meeting would take
    place to approve an appointment.

    He said one name has been endorsed by the selection panel and that a news
    conference would be staged on Wednesday.

    Trapattoni won six Serie A titles with Juventus and one with Inter Milan, while he
    also won league titles with Bayern Munich, Benfica and Salzburg last season.

    The appointment would be a blow for former England coach Terry Venables, who
    had been hoping to be Steve Staunton's successor.

    At last some great news....
    This is the best appointment we could have hoped for.
    Heard whispers that Liam Brady might be his number 2, which would be great.
    he has a vast knowledge of ALL the Irish players.

    Ireland will surely kick on now and become a force to be reckoned with again.
    We have some quality players. We just need a decent manager, some ideas and confidence and we will be back in the good times.

    NOBODY likes playing the Irish...and they never have.

    I always thought that Brian Kerr was doing well but just missed out on making it through a really tough group. Stan was a complete joke, never even looked capable of managing a team, a bit like McClaren for England, had the backing of everyone but when results went wrong, hop on his back and "force" the guy out.

    Even look at them, seperated at birth! I'm telling you! :D

    As for Irelands push for World Cup 2010, I really feel like there is a great chance for us to make it to South Africa, especially with a new top manager. Look t the group we're in;

    Italy
    Bulgaria
    Republic of Ireland
    Cyprus
    Georgia
    Montenegro

    Italy: Ok, this will more than likely be a loss in Italy but at Croker......you never know, a draw perhaps?
    Bulgaria: Seeded above us and a tough test away surely, but we should take them at home.
    Cyprus: Disasters against them last time out so we'll do the job this time and do it right.
    Georgia: Again, tough away but I see 6 points here.
    Montenegro: We simply have to take full advantage of the waekest team in the group, 6 points, handy, IMO


    So things are most definatly on the up for Irish football!

    C'MON IRELAND!

    hm.... - you do have some english blood don't you know that---i love ireland but to say that a nation like ireland will win both legs against a nation who's best player is Vucinic (and you don't have that good player) is arrogant almost as english media ;)..
