Plus, you'd get the impression that Aldo might be able to inspire a little more motivation than Steve"2be4"Stunton.

Theres no way Aldo should get near the job.  Hes made his intentions clear that he wants to follow in the great footsteps of such legends as Chas n' Dave and Daniel O'Donnell instead!

We need a hungry young manager who will give the young players a chance ( cause the older one's are pants ), who can speak the language without putting everyone into a coma and who will promise never to play robbie keane and ian harte again.

Here's a thought. Why dont Ireland get a manager with some 'Management' experience. He doesnt have to be Irish, i think with the Kerr Fella and Downs Syndrome, being from the South doesnt help in management. Even someone like Billy Davies from Derby or a Championship side. At least they will know how to organise a side competing at a decent level. If you want to blame anyone lads, blame Jack Charlton. He set you up for this fall in his overachievement, to be honest. You havent really got any decent players and whoever comes in has to get that across to the media. That any qualification will always be an over achievement.

LawrieS, It may have been an over achievement in the past but when you over achive a few times then it becomes the norm ... we should not settle for what wales and the scotlands of this world have settled for.... Let's not put our heads down and get all negative ... we should learn from our f*ck ups and move on ... Stan was, is and will be f*ck up ... FAI ..take note , LEARN and MOVE ON .

Have to disagree with you LawrieS. I think Norn Iron and the word overachievement come hand in hand and they have done f*ck all except cause a few fluke upsets in the last few years.
I think we dont have the players that we had a few years ago but in fairness when you still have 9 premiership players in your starting line up you have to look else-where to point the finger.  The only World class player is Shay Given and then there are a few above average players (on paper) being Duff, Finnan, Keane (again ON PAPER!). There is the makings of a above average first 11 but after that I cant see anyone else being more outstanding than another and its just your run-of-the mill campaigners ie Kilbane, Carsley, Dunne etc to fill the remaining slots.   
Over the years there were so many hopefuls but many havent matched what our expectations were....People like Steven Reid, Andy Reid, Morrison, Elliot, Lee, OShea, Miller, Quinn ...............the list is endless!

Whatever manager we get it won't make sh!t of a difference as long as the pri€ks(The FAI) are still running the show, leave Stan for the moment(not too long tho he is crap) get rid of delaney and his croonies first and get a decent setup in the fai.

Agree Finnegan. It's the easy option to jump on Stan's back.
And there are many others bar delaney - the 10 man board who back him are the core of the FAI.

Also, this personal abuse of Stan is out of order. Fair enough he is bad with the media etc

But the FAI recently appointed Gerry McDermott as marketing manager. My sources tell me that he is the one that advises Stan to accentuate the positives.
So who is really talking the post match drivel. It comes from Stans mouth, but maybe McDermott and Declan Conroy should also be up for criticism.

There are many at fault for the current state of Irish football, Stan is the pne in the spotlight and an easy target.

in saying that, I think if he loses one of the 2 next games he should do the decent thing and stand down

We all agree the Gaffer is getting a serious amount of abuse.  He was a ever present great player for the republic over the years earning 102 caps and deserves huge respect from us as a player, but as a manager!
I think the fai looked at van basten at holland and Kilnnsman at germany and thought eh, maybe this is the way to go? HAsent worked so he should step down while he still has our respect as a man!

I heard in the boozer last night that if Stan drops points in the next 2 games he will be let go and Kenny Daglish will be brought in as an interim manager until they can find someone? Anyone else here this?

I think that when we do appoint a new manager that he should not be Irish or British.

We're trying to qualify for the European championship, and play other European teams. Why not get a European manager and get away the hustle and bustle style of British football with its "All Guts but NO Glory" outcomes.
 
I know we cant afford Lippi or Otmar Hitzfeld, but there are plenty of good technical managers in Portugal, France, Holland, Romania.... that would jump at the chance to take an international team, (albeit a sh*t one at the mo).
 
At least we might be entertained despite not qualifying.
 
ps. I know Sven was useless, but hopefully we don't ripped off by a dud.
considerably richer than u

Stan will have to be paid off if he is sacked, end of story.
But i also think that the FAI have more money than they would have you believe

If you could have a choice of any unattached/attached manager in the world who would you like to be in charge (Be realistic aswell, no Jose's, Ferguson's or Big Jacks)
The way other european national teams went with Big time players like van basten and Klinnsman might work but only with someone like Keano as manager not Stan!
