Time for O'Neill to make up his mind surely.I think he is past any sort of job in the Premiership,so does he stay with Ireland or jack it in altogether

Hmmm, I think he’ll follow his own advice, it’s been spot on for years, but if he needs some insight into moving jobs he’ll give you a call

Looks like O’Neill is writing his international obituary hunting after these clubs jobs. He’s not the man to build a team for Quatar 2022 so if Delaney has any sense he should have started the process of finding a new manager already.

But this is John Delaney we’re talking about, so..

Really think Martin should call it a day altogether.What he did at Leicester and Celtic was tremendous.Had Ferguson retired in the mid noughties he might have had a crack at the Utd job.As it is he's not even getting the jobs that Pulis and Alderdyce are competing for,and Ireland are a busted flush.

Quique Flores ex-Watford now Espanyol is Stoke’s first choice say local journalists. They have seen many a manager come & go at Stoke and Port Vale.

Interesting to note that there's been no contract in place since the last one ran out in November but the good old FAI have been paying the management team anyway - As usual great governance from Delaney and Co

Declan Rice of West Ham, get him capped asap

Only qualifies through grandparents. Hope not another Grealish situation.

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

He was in the senior squad for during 2016 but I don't think he got a game.

Thought Dermot Desmond picked and pays the Ireland manager?

Was MON not given a new contract before the Wales game?

Nope - verbal agreement only nothing signed

Contributes to the wages but nothing else as far as I know

It would be interesting to know if it's a case that FAI and O'Neill have a verbal agreement so FAI haven't got around to drawing up contracts of their own volition or if they have and O'Neill hasn't signed them.

Also if O'Neill is "out of contract" does he still get paid?

Looking from the outside in, it all seems a little shoddy and unprofessional.
