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

Thought Dermot Desmond picked and pays the Ireland manager?

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

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.

I'd say O'Neill can live without Tony O'Donoghue's idiotic interviews and Dunphy's rants.

Apart from going over the top after the Denmark game, I think asks perfectly legitimate questions. It's O'Neill who thinks he's above such questioning. He doesn't have to listen to Dunphy.

Bit surprised Stoke not (apparently) offering the job on a short-term contract to Steptoe & Son. Worth nearly anything for them to stay in the Premier league and the two speak English (O'Neill does anyway).

Dunphy makes the snowballs and O'Donoghue fires them. I think that's what's really annoying about it. After the Wales game O'Neill praised McClean up to a height. Then two minutes later that clown asked him...."tell us about this man (McClean) beside you".....idiot.

Oh, you're taking about him asking mundane post-match questions?

He's probably afraid to ask anything else as Martin doesn't like his approach to be questioned. "Why would I tell you.....?"

It's a mixture of stupidity and lack of respect.

Does money really matter to O'Neill and Keane given the millions they have already.

It's all relative! Everybody has a standard!

Time for O Neill to go. If he's looking at other jobs why keep him. He's no contract so  let him off.
