Only stupid fans will think Martinís whole time as manager of the ROI team will be remembered for putting on subs at halftime of a playoff for the World Cup with that squad!
Stupid fans and remembering his whole tenure aside. Do you think bringing McGeady on was a good managerial decision? In my book it was absolutely shocking and brings into question what he offers us from here.

McGeady on was a horrible gamble. We needed 2 goals but when was the last time (ever?) MCGeady created or scored a goal for us? He is talented but looks like he doesnt know what he is doing and couldnt cross his legs never mind beat the 1st man. Tbh i didnt even know he was still on the squad when he was brought on.

Id have had Long on from the start....he hasnt been scoring but always puts a shift in and has been proven to do it in big games...couldnt believe be only got 10 mins

Look theres no doubt we got lucky in so many games throughout the campaign but what other manager can or could do better with the talent (or lack of) we have? We do not play any football...which is amazing as the Danes are nlt world beaters....they have many mediocre players but only 1 star. I think we were gutless not to have the balls to try and keep the ball and play football...real bravery is getting on and keeping the ball
No itís not...real bravery is getting a kids cuddly toy from the lions cage.

I would call that stupidity myself

Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

McGeady has 93 caps. What. The. F**k?

Other than that late goal in Georgia, I can't recall anything he has done.

I went to all games 07-09 when living in Dublin and defo remember screaming to get him off or not put him on.

Unbelievable he's been about so long...i cannot remember ever seeing a more frustrating player...it's funny that it's only sport but can put you in such bad form ;D

ROI are down to 32 on the FIFA rankings. The fourth green bouncy field is ranked 24.
Meath are ranked 246, just ahead of Vanuatu.

I can't see MON being appointed to Everton .   Bookies love playing ducks and drakes on such matters .

The lack of interest in the story shows heís not as indispensable as some here thinks. It would actually show a shortage of ambition by Everton to opt for a bootball merchant as manager, to be honest.

Whoever is our manger in 2018 needs to start a rebuild with an eye to Qatar 2022, getting the Euros in 2020 is very hard not to do with how itís structured.

He does but he has played since u15 I think so must have some affinity.

He needs to get a competitive cap which he can't get until next season. Hopefully it won't be too late.

So word on the street is the MO'N is off to Stoke. He's not turning up to the Soccer Writers do tomorrow.
Who'll get the gig then?

Latest talk is that it's been offered to Flores who has until tomorrow to accept. Pity.
