MoN's managment record makes him the best Irish candidate for the job by a longshot.

Fantastic success in his first real job in management at Wycombe and then at Leicester, who's fans revere him as their best manager ever after he won 2 league cups and had them regularly finishing in the top half of the EPL. The loyalty he showed to these two clubs marked him out as a manager of extreme integrity. 

Extraordinary success followed at Celtic, given that Rangers had been so ascendant for over two decades.
He was Celtic's most successful manager since the Jock Stein era. Getting them to an EUFA final was another high profile achievement.

At Villa, he rescued a basket case club and had them punching above their weight finishing regularly in the top 6 and got them into a major final, only leaving when his best players were being sold from under him.

At Sunderland he rescued them in his first season and was given a pittance in transfer funds in the second (compare his two half seasons to Di Canio)

I wouldn't have any reservations about his style of play as we've always played a similar sort of game, but unlike Trap his sides have mixed it up somewhat more and not solely relied on long ball tactics.

With O'Neill, there'll pride and passion in the shirt from every player.

We'd be lucky to have him, if he's interested in the job.

Chris Hughton a better candidate for me, a young manager who plays attractive ball, MON plays similar style to Trap.

He doesn't really. 
Trap is a 4-4-2 man with full backs instructed not to overlap or pass halfway much

MON used 3-5-2 for a lot of his managerial career

Martin is the best candidate by a long shot.

...btw why would Chris Hughton even consider the job given his current premier league position. The job is for old folks or those starting out in their first job in management.

Never happen this time round but I'd love Neil Lennon to manage Ireland. Maybe he'd fancy Christmas in Qatar in 2022! Thumbs Up

Didn't John Robertson look after all the training sessions when he was with O'Neill? Didn't come with him to Sunderland though and is recovering for a heart attack at present.

Would like the FAI to look further than just former premier league managers when looking to appoint our next coach.

Blew over €30m on over priced British players again. That wouldn't matter when it comes to the Irish job though.


My biggest worries would be his performances with out Robertson, his absence at some Sunderland training sessions and his issues in his personal life distracting him from the job.


I'd say he'd be alright if he got the job(A Trap who doesn't ignore 20% of the players). The football would still be dull and he wouldn't reveloutionise Irish football from top to bottom or anything like that.


I'm hoping for better but he's a bit more inspiring than some names mentioned.(Roy Keane, Brady, Souness etc.)

I know 3-5-2 has died a death in recent years but we'd have a decnt enough team if that formation was still popular.

                                  Westwood

                      Clark      O'Shea    Wilson

Coleman             Gibson      McCarthy          AN other

                                   McGeady

                             Keane       Long

MON plays a mixed style, he likes small, mobile mids in the center  of the team, he is the best candidate from the irish tbh.  I like Liam Brady also, he knows the game and he is a teacher.   But my best candidate is Bielsa, in a way similar to MON but a bit more attacking minded. 

He made Athletic of Bilbao the most brittish team from the spanish league, to change their mindset and they became very hard to handle. Remember their victory at Old Trafford in 2012.  The basques are very similar to the irish , Athetic only can purchase basque players, that made them like a national side before a club.

The edge between Bielsa and MON, is that Bielsa also handles the under age levels u 21, u-20, u-18 to work the mindset as a whole,  as he did at Bilbao, Mexico (Atlas  FC) , Argentina and Chile.

i dont know if MON would take charge of the under teams as well, something that it seems vital, to reshape the domestic game and built the future of irish football.

I'd be very happy with him. His style may be not the most modern but he would pick the right players and would be able to motivate them.
It would be a good job for him at this stage of his career also.
