It is quite an achievement to make relations worse than had been previously. Worrying times 

That link isn't working and browsing the international section I can't find it either.

I believe Hill went with the Ireland team to Serbia etc and then cut his trip short and returned to London. Still failing to deal with the Keane situation too.

Link back working and now the FAI wish everyone a happy Easter and a hush hush Clap

This appointment is already stinking to high hell and maybe he has Kenny to deflect attention but this is extremely concerning 

One press conference since November when he was telling everyone we would be hosting the Euros Confused



Out of curiosity how many press conferences has the English CEO done in the last 12 Months ? 

Missed this. I’m not sure. I should have pointed out that he hasn’t answered questions other than the press conference since beginning in the role. Just searched English FA CEO in google and see he was on SSN three weeks ago. Not sure the point of the question but I imagine there’s been a hell of a lot more public appearances than. Hill 


The point I was trying to make was that I dont really think it matters if he's not seen or heard from 6 months at a time, public appears are not what a CEO is there for. I know he's moving over from London this month. Considering the sh*t shows he's inherited id imagine he's snowed under.

This is an Association in tens of millions of debt and they are free to get on with business with no questions to answer and unaccountable to public representatives and the general public who are funding them? I would agree if they were wheeling out spokespeople to tackle the, as you say, sh*t show he has inherited but they’re not. The buck stops with him and the Board and to be honest I’m not so sure how appropriate it is for a non executive Chairman in Roy Barrett to be answering questions as he did last week. He simply doesn’t have the day to day experience in house.

In any case; if everything else was going well and he was making a good impression; the public appearances wouldn’t be a concern. But that is not the case.

But going back to my original point he’s only in the job a few months and try to get a grasp of the sh*t show he’s trying to get back in order . That’s not going to happen over night you’d have to agree. I agree he’s accountable there no point him answering any questions unless he has a full grasp of what’s wrong and how he can fix this

PFAI not consulted on reforms. Any insight on this from D69er?

Been working all weekend and had that EGM this morning / afternoon. Will be working on some comms tomorrow to issue to members when finalised. We are extremely disappointed at how the process was handled in terms of the lack of consultation. Supporters made a statement at the EGM today and both reps spoke and expressed that disappointment.

Totally agree. It should be a sackable offence not to be based in Ireland full time. My own company appointed an Englishman as CEO during pandemic. He moved over immediately Lockdown 1 last year was eased. This was despite he being sitting in a house or apartment in Dublin on his own working remotely as office was still closed.

Exactly. If results were going well, we wouldn't be talking about him. Looking for scapegoats here, when the real ones were on the pitch last night.

Couldn't tell you who the English, Welsh, Scottish or Northern Irish FA's CEOs are. I don't think they're supposed to be celebrities which is part of the reason Irish football is in the shape its in
