That’s explain it, you’ll ignore it and then move on to the next thing e.g. The Sammie Szmodics thread.

I believe they had an arrangement to appoint Sagnol in April but neither party expected Georgia to qualify for the Euro's so now it's either scuppered or delayed.

I'd respect your opinion if you weren't so far up the FAI's hole.  I'm sure you are on their payroll.

Richard Kimble is out there somewhere. 

Carsley should have had the decency to rule himself out publicly alot earlier if he wasn’t going to take it.

Why? He did nothing wrong. He wasn’t the one creating the headlines so why should he out himself in that position?

I agree Carsley was taking the piss and should have ruled himself out.  Just like Alonso is ending speculation by stating he is staying put.

Taking the piss how? Carsley is an u21s manager who hadn't a game since last November, hes completely out of the limelight in England. He wasn't before any media until this month when the u21s had their first fixture of 2024 when the question was finally put to him and he put it to bed quick enough.

Sure all the doubting thomases like yourself would probably refuse to believe him anyway even with it coming from the horses mouth.

I'm not sure what's going on, if they were waiting on poyet or sagnol how would they know which one will be available coz if Greece qualified then surely poyet would stay and same with sagnol so they couldn't have an agreement in place with either of them.... 
If they do pull a rabbit out of the hat and produce a manager that has been totally off the radar then fair play to them but I can't see it. 
Have they been caught now with carsley declaring he's out maybe..i feel poyet is the last man standing here ......

100% no. I would be absolutely shocked if they announced someone in the next two weeks who this applied to.

He knew the FAI were after him for at least 18 months back.  I dont believe a word out of his mouth that he met them for a coffee in November and that was it.  Probably haggling for more money for months dragging it out.  He was only ever a half hearted Plastic Padddy anyway.

I agree, “technically” he did nothing wrong - from a decency point of view, he did. 

I’m like a broken record now, but delighted he’s not going to be the next Ireland manager. Wish him the best with England and he’d have been mad to leave that gig for the Ireland job)

They had a panel looking for a manager after Staunton's departure. However, Trapattoni became available and everybody forgot about the panel and all the interviews it had conducted. It became irrelevant.

Something similar may happen here. The FAI announce someone, and it's an acceptable choice. Previous statements about experience, contracts, etc, won't matter.

However, if the FAI announce John O'Shea it will leave them totally exposed. It would go beyond the bullsh*tting you expect into the realms of deliberate lying.

There'd have to be consequences for that.

The 3 wise men were fooking useless.

Do you know who put them in touch with Trapattoni?

The 3 wise men played their role well. They acted as a shield for John Delaney. He had put his own neck on the line with the Staunton appointment. But they would take the flak for a bad choice.

In the end, Trap came in and Delaney took the credit.


Now we are left to wonder who will come in and save Canham.
