It's a mixture of stupidity and lack of respect.
"The disappointment of Denmark - we were really trying to go for and get two goals in second half. No point in sitting back in second half and losing 2-1 - the perception elsewhere is very, very positive. Unlike yourself," said O'Neill

This is what Tony O'Donoghue receives from O'Neill Seanie. Does O'Neill deserve respect back in response to this?

Totally arrogant and disrespectful interview from martin o neill. Tony o donoghue is asking the questions every fan wants answered.  O'neill seems to holding a grudge and was very confrontational throughout the interview. Does the manager think he is above criticism? Didnt think the questions were worthy of the level of disdain that o'neill threw back. Poor form from o'neill.

Where are all the lads who were saying Tony was being unfair to MON before and MON was right to be petulant dīck? Very quiet tonight.

Two more years of threading water as MON does nothing much to develop the panel as not making the Euros with the new system would scupper the PL job he’s aiming for. Yay.

At least we have ambition in rugby.

It's hard to see MON and TOD getting back together.

Tbig are the national mojo. MON has won 2 European cups. TOD wants to channel the mojo. It is very messy.

It's a circus. The way "real fans" copyright E Dunphy talk about the team it is almost a sacred thing.
And they are best mediocre. You can't make a silk purse out of Aidan McGeady.
Why does O Donoghue have to make a big deal out of interviewing the manager ?
Why doesn't the energy and the passion go into changing things ?

I agree with seafoid. O'Donoghue asked for that.....I notice none of ye mentioned his mealy mouthed "hard luck" that O'Neill referred to before he went for him after the Denmark game. Interviews like that are pointless anyway.....ye have Eamon Dunphy to tell ye everything anyway.

There needs to be a reality check. We have a limited but very committed group of players. Martin O'Neill is managing the team the same way he managed every team that he has managed. High workrate, honest, not pleasing on the eye and overly conservative. What do people expect. We were third seeds in our group and finished 2nd. In the Euros we beat Italy and scared the bejaysus out of France. I'm not sure exactly what more that he's supposed to have done. And his point about clubs in England being interested in him is a valid one. Surely they wouldn't be interested if he was doing a crap job? Or maybe they haven't a clue in comparison to the well educated Irish soccer masses and king Eamo.

In fairness when you see the turkeys most of them hire King Eamo might be closer to right than they are.

MON shouldn't have carried any acrimony from previous interviews into today, made himself look very petty imo. As they said on OTB, he should realise that he's not just speaking to TOD in these interviews

Thought O Neill came across as a whinging baby today. He'd want to toughen up, with the money he is paid the public have the right to ask him question through TOD.

He knows well and couldn’t give a flying fūck what the Irish public think. The open courting of Stoke tells you that much.

Seanie, what O'Donoghue did after the Denmark game was wrong. I couldn't give a damn what Eamon Dunphy says. I use my own two eyes and it's insulting to be told that Dunphy "tells ye everything anyway".

I have my opinion about O'Neill's style of play, what our expectations are/should be and all the rest. I base it on how I rate the players from watching them playing in England and not how someone else rates them.

O'Neill doesn't like to be questioned. Every post-game interview O'Donoghue does he seems to be walking on egg shells around the manager in case he upsets him. It's pathetic and very, very boring at this stage. The post-game analysis is also boring because the performances are the same tired old way of playing ball.

I'll probably stop watching them (before someone tells me I should), but can we debate the game rather than telling us why we have opinions when you couldn't possibly know.

Why needlessly antagonise the sporting public though? If a couple of results go badly and he's already created a negative atmosphere via his interviews, it won't be long turning toxic

Why needlessly antagonise the manager? He's not interested in getting answers....it's purely for ratings. It's was the same with the previous manager....the interviews got very uncomfortable. It's RTE's editorial style when it comes to sport.....appeal the the guy on the barstool.
