Sure there are no decent soccer managers in the 26 counties anyway. At least Martin O Neill has decent experience.
The panel during 26 county matches are like 3 mothers talking about a child with very little aptitude for the game. Dunphy is hilarious. Especially rapping about Hoolihan.

Following on from the map controversy on the Late Late Show,this week we have had Sean O'Rourke laughing on air at Liam Cosgrave's suggestion that water was too good for the hunger strikers and Eamon Dunphy thanking God on air for "Londonderry" (referencing the contribution of Martin O'Neill,Mc Clean and Duffy in Cardiff).

This has caused a howl of protests up North,but no adverse reaction at all in the South.Are we too sensitive up here? I must say I did laugh at Dunphy's comment,which I interpreted at the time as being tongue in cheek

Any time I feel like I'm becoming too sensitive I read Ruth Dudley Edwards column in the Belfast Telegraph. This reminds me that everything that is wrong in Ireland is the fault of northerner Gerry Adams. Examples are:
- Stormont deadlock
- Brexit
- Water shortages
- Homelessness
- Ireland's failure to reach the 2010 World Cup Finals
- GAABoard down

Yeap, all Adams' fault.

Has Dunphy liked any Irish manager after Eoin Hand's tenure?

Perhaps Tony and Northern Nationalists could make a voluntary donation of say €100 each to RTÉ seeing as they don't pay them a Licence Fee??
It would
A - be an extra proof of their Irishness
B - force RTÉ to treat them properly.

Sorry yeah, Kerr was commentating on radio v Moldova, so it probably was him. He doesn't like O'Neill, you can tell by the little remarks he makes even when something goes well.
Kerr only dislikes O'Neill because he is from the North.

The blocking of certain programmes is particularly distasteful. For example, why would they block Ireland soccer matches, but allow Rugby or Gaelic?

Listened to rte radio coverage of the match on Monday night. Anyone know who the co-commentater was?
If it sounded like a man talking while simultaneously trying to alleviate a bad bout of constipation, then it was Brian Kerr!

Is Kerr not from Belfast,or at least his parents were? Seems to be a George Osbourne type,peeved he was sacked and therefore snipes at all his successors

€200!

I am pretty sure Brian Kerr was either born in Belfast and spent his early years there,or else his father was a Belfast man,so he would hardly have a bias against the North
