Do you think that the FAI were telling the truth at the press conference a few weeks ago and they have their man, the search is over and all will be revealed early April?

or


Were they lying through their teeth?  No man in place, buying time with the contract line, and still desperately searching for someone to take the job as the time runs out?

Well ya see now ya see this is what i think. Unless they were to run into a wild blind bit of luck if they hadnt someone lined up then how could they possibly explain it all away? They couldnt could they? And they cant appoint JOS cause they said they had the negotiations almost wrapped up weeks ago. Unless Carsley let them down big style at the end but i doubt it cause if they were that far along he wouldnt back out at that stage. Who this mystery man is tho we will have to wait and see. Richard Kimble is out there somewhere.

I believe they thought they had Carsley and he backed out and wasn't for turning.

Well possibly but i just dont see how you get to that late stage and potentially almost agree and back out then. Dosent add up for me. If you in it till then your going all the way IMO. What would make him change his mind that late in the talks in that scenario.

English FA made him a counter offer to stay. 
Was interesting that he said "I see myself as more of a development coach" in his interview where he Said he is staying. Could have been offered like a job for life "Lee we see you as the number one man here in St. George's and will reward you for it and give you a long term contract for £££".

If they are bluffing then they are doubling down on it!


But if you enjoy the twists and turns of the process …’On Thursday, Canham told an internal meeting of football staff not to believe what they’re reading in the media and there’ll be an appointment within a couple of weeks’

Is it not unusual that the organisation appointing a manager have no idea who it is bar 2 people?

Well there ya have it. Case closed. Objection your honour. Over ruled. Who is this mystery man. Kinda dont think its Poyet either as that would have been too what if. He may have won the play off and he prob would have been kept on surely.

I just dont see it. I think he was must have been out from earlier on. I just dont see him on board and then change his mind late on over some more dosh. Could be wrong.

I'm looking forward to hearing why this contractual issue precluded them from naming Mr.X

I could be wrong too. Kilbane mentioned he thinks he must have been promised something. 

Its just as likely that Carsley was convinced to stay but it happened earlier and Canham was in fact talking about someone else.

Just trying to think who that could be though. Is it Keane even I'm starting to wonder....

The FAI seem confident for a while that they have agreed a deal someone. The new manager would want to be one of Zidane, Conte, Mourinho etc. after all the completely unnecessary build up to this appointment though.

It's got to the stage where that is  far from impossible with the FAI
