Anyhoo, my real question is 'why does our senior international team play in a completely different way/style to all of our other international teams, and in direct opposition to the Player Development Plan (PDP) espoused as sports policy by the organisation?'  And following on from that 'why have the FAI reappointed the national senior squad manager when he has consistently played in a  different (and opposing) way to the supposed national policy, and presumably will continue to do so?'  Just asking.

Agreed 100%.
Lost a lot of admiration I've had for O'Neill in the last couple of years irrespective of the style he plays. Think his recent behaviour is terrible

Delighted the Eagles made it to the Superbowl. Hopefully they can take the evil trio down ;)

Patriots win with 18 men on the field at all times, tough to beat, even when completely outplayed...

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

As far as I'm aware he is still getting paid OK Jim

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

Nope - verbal agreement only nothing signed

Thought Dermot Desmond picked and pays the Ireland manager?

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

Its incredible really to be observing this. Nothing Trump says surprises me anymore as he's obviously deranged/racist/senile - take your pick. Here's an extract from an interview with that liberal bastion the WSJ and its a real rant about how he is the smartest and best at everything, as WSJ tries to ask him about Bannon, must be read to be believed. The amazing thing is he got elected.

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

It's because he's from Athy. :)

I always feel he's talking down to the audience. Preachy.

Are you sure you are not mixing him up with Ewan MacKenna, also from Athy!!!

Always knew it was a kip ;)

Anyone listen to the Fergus Connolly OTB podcast? Will try and get to it tonight
