Management and players - both welcome! Funny, I was sitting there waiting for the bell to go for my first class in the seating area. The two men opposite me were giving Steve Staunton and Mark Delaney a hard time and the Ireland team a slagging off. Certain players were picked out such as Liam Miller.

So I am interested to know what changes you would bring? what would you do different? How would your line up look? Do you think Staunton knows what he is doing like he claimed last night?

Please, spare your smart comments such as "were English who cares". For anyone who hasn't notice believe it or not - Irish people are on this forum!!!:D ;)

Staunton has to go - same with Toshack and McClaren. All have failed in their respective tasks during these qualifiers.

We need Steve Staunton out, FAI Boss Delaney needs to find a replacement for us ASAP, That Euro 2008 campaign was awful, Total disgrace, I would like to see a forgein manager come, Jose is free!!! LOL They should have got O'Neill before they got Staunton.

I have never witness a worse campagin from the Irish. We need the spirit of 2002! There is not many teams in the world that have a team spirit like us and probably the best fans in the world, but at the moment the spirit is gone and fans are reall unhappy at current sitution. We need the spirit back lads!!

Getting booed at Croke Park of all places, Croke Park is a special place for every person that lives on this island and to have the country play so bad on that pitch is shocking.

Big changes are needed and it needs to start by Staunton getting the boot, We cant continue to let this arse manage the country, Get him out before the Wales game next month.

I do not understand how the **** he got the job in the 1st place! I was shocked as **** when he took over, But i said to myself let see what he has got and give him time to see, Well Steve you had you time and it time you packed your bags and let someone that manage come in and manage your country because to be honest Derry City or Fiin Harps wouldnt even want you as a manager actually no team in the Eircom Premier and 1st Divison would!!

I just hope that the time the draw is made for WC 2010, Their is a new manager in the hot!!

FAI PULL THE FINGER OUT!!!!!!!

True, but when I say their respective tasks I meant...

England - Comfortably qualify for Euro 2008 in a relatively easy group (not struggle in away games in Macedonia, Israel, Croatia and Russia and fail to beat Macedonia at home!)

Rep of Ireland - Challenge Germany & Czech Rep for qualification (picking up 1 point in 2 games against Cyprus is not good enough and there's a chance they could finish below them in the group)

Wales - Show progress in qualifying (not struggle to beat San Marino (who?!) and probably finish 6th in a group of 7 teams)

Agreed.

I'm a big critic of England and I dont deny this - never have.

We're all entitled to a viewpoint and I always back up my statements with facts about the team.....as opposed to abuse about the country and it's people like some people do !!!!!!!

England wont win anything because of the attitudes of the player. Too much like a prima donna and they are a big bunch of egos all stuck together in a flimsy way with a bit of wish and hope.

They NEED a big strong MANAGER - not a coach - any asshole can do this job - they need someone to bring the players down to earth and get them to work together and have pride and passion !!!

As players I think they are some of the best in the world - as a team they are easily beaten !!!

The FA are idiots - they worry more for politics than football.

Go back in time - Brian Clough I read about - I read his book 'Cloughie'.

Back in his day England need a manager and Clough was the only possible candidate..................but no they are scared of him and choose someone else !!!

Assholes !!!

The FA need to get wise and choose the best for the job - not best for the politics !!!

Mourinho wont get the job - the FA would be scared to death of him.

But believe me - right here right now - he is the only man on the planet who could get England winning !!!

Same for ROI and Wales too........stop playing games and choose the right man for the job - not the job for the right man !!!

Best thing that has happened to Irish football in the past 2years! Can see Graeme Souness or Dave O'Leary getting the job!

Puts us in the same position we were in when we sacked Mr Kerr. The FAI struggled to get a good manager then and they'll struggle more this time. The FAI's reputation is runied.No-one with a bit of sense will touch them.Thats why you'll see past failures like O'Leary and Aldridge linked with the job.

We need a foreign manager and the FAI wont pay the money and until this happens it will be a long time before we are enjoying the glory days of South Korea in 2002. All be it we didnt win WC but at least the whole country was buzzing for three or four weeks. Its a shame really because the fans deserve it.
Thats just my two cents.People might dis-agree.

They cant give it to Souness. He is a joke. We need to get Paul Jewell, George Graham or Steve Coppell.
Feck it Lets have Ron Atkinson. Some may laugh but it could just work.
Someone who isnt a complete dipshit would be a bonus.

Good post btw Carly-spot on. Cloughie is a great book as well!

Former Japan and South Africa coach Philippe Troussier has said that he is interested in succeeding Steve Staunton as Republic of Ireland manager.
The Football Association of Ireland terminated Staunton's contract on Tuesday and David O'Leary is the early bookies favourite for the job.

Frenchman Troussier told BBC Sport that the Republic job would represent "an exciting challenge".

"I'm already thinking about the 2010 World Cup in Africa," added Troussier.

The 52-year-old guided Japan to the second round of 2002 World Cup finals and was in charge of South Africa at the 1998 finals in France.

He has been out of football since abruptly stepping down as Morocco boss in January 2006 but the former Olympique Marseille boss is now keen to return to top-flight management.

I have a lot of managerial experience behind me

Philippe Troussier

Troussier went close to landing the Republic job in 2003 prior to Brian Kerr's appointment and the Frenchman told BBC Sport that he is currently mulling over a job offer from an unnamed African Federation.

"Right now I am open to suggestions. I'm available.


"I have a lot of managerial experience behind me, more than 200 matches at the highest level and managed at two World Cups."


The Frenchman has lived in Morocco for the last 15 years and after converting to Islam last year, he and his wife Dominque adopted two local children.

However, Troussier says that he's now ready to return to football management.

"Two years in a career is nothing and I am now 52 years old, not too old, not too young and the right age to take on a new challenge.

"Of course, it's not easy for a federation to decide to take a foreign manager.

"But I have been living in Morocco for more than 15 years and during that time, I worked in South Africa, Nigeria, Japan and Marseille.

"It's not a problem to live in Morocco or Paris or London. Ireland's an international country and it's not difficult to move around."

Troussier has also had spells in charge of Nigeria, the Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso and Qatar as well as several club jobs in his native France.

Other names being linked with the Republic position include current Finland manager Roy Hodgson, Dutch Under-21 manager Foppe de Haan, ex-Republic striker John Aldridge, Graeme Souness and former Wigan manager Paul Jewell.
