Whatever all this talk of "terrible squad" vs "good chance of qualifying from a weak group etc", this NI fan only requires two things from his team.

One, that each player should give 100% in a green shirt and two, that their efforts be well organised. And Michael has proven that he's both a motivator and an organiser

Thereafter I'm not greatly worried whether we win a load of games to qualify for tournaments, as we've infrequently done in my time, or whether we come up short, as is more usually the case.

For as the song says: "We're not Brazil, we're Northern Ireland, but it's all the same to me" Thumbs Up

Because their squad is absolutely hopeless. But because it's so bad I can see him pushing hard to get a few of our younger fringe players that are eligible for them on board to try and improve them a bit.

First home game is v Finland - win that and they could have a shot at 2nd. Don’t win and it’s an uphill task.

Logical appointment for both parties but it's loaded with risk. A bit like their Bretherton across the boarder, the NI team requires a long term rebuild.

I think he's pragmatically taking the job hoping to build towards Euro 2028 (and potential games in Belfast), as opposed to qualification for 2024. Lots of talk about how open their group is for Germany, bit their playing pool is very weak right now.

Yep agree it's a long contract, would bring him up to the end 2028 tournament so perhaps building for that

Given the overwhelmingly enthusiastic response to his return, and their favorable qualifying group, I'd give Northern Ireland an excellent chance to qualify for EURO 2024.  



On checking their squad I would give them next to no chance of qualifying.

It's not as good a squad as before and I hope I'm wrong but N.I. will be well in the mix under O'Neill and their group fixtures schedule is favourable too. If they beat Finland at home in the second game, they'll already be in a great position in the group. They could have a decent lead in second place before their last two games away to Finland and home to Denmark.  

It’s an absolutely pathetic squad with no decent players coming through! They’ll be battling for 4th spot with Kazakhstan.

Should be an excellent testament to what a pragmatic manager can do with a limited group of players.
