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.



All matches/results/fixtures:

Put em under pressure:




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.
World Cup Champions 2010 - Republic of Ireland :)

Seems like the perfect man for the job so :p
Thats the Irish way so he should fit right in.
Get in Tardelli's roar....

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!
