Ewan McKenna calls for Jack oconnor to step down.

I see Ewan calling for Jacko to step down. Does this man post when drunk or something? Jack will be massive addition to Kildare.

The best advice I could give you is basically do the opposite or think the opposite to McKenna. Better yet, just block him on twitter.

Ballbag of the highest degree.

I called Ewan out on this, he offered to buy me a pint and discuss.

Thickest skin of any man on the internet. Has has nailed the contrarian point of view.

A good journalist who puts out some great pieces mixed with a mediocre book (McGregor book).

However you are as well ignoring his rants on Twitter - usually takes the contrarian point of view in order to generate publicity or keep himself relevant.

better than the 99% of twitter that agrees with itself and labels anyone else a contrarian or  lunatic and trys cancels their careers

Ewan is bang on the money 90-95% of the time.

His takedown of Irish rugby is the stuff of legend.

I suspect that he has a touch of the Timmy O'Leary syndrome. Maybe he should lay off the beer/wine/ whiskey or whatever his favourite tipple happens to be, when he goes on Twitter.

Ewan has 2 obsessions. Belittling and insulting the dubs and the Irish rugby team/players any chance he gets.

Facts rarely get in the way of his opinions, especially on twitter. Some of the things he's posted on Twitter and then later deleted are a joke. Jim Gavin in particular has been a target of his vile opinions.

He's from the Dunphy, George Hook etc school of punditry. Being controversial gets you the spotlight and an easy way to make money

I think Mickey Harte has been too. Ewen is a vile individual.

It's only a matter of reading his tweets (the ones that haven't been deleted) to see.

He works like this; put out a tweet to get people talking - fair enough, I get what he does.

Gets the response his tweet has loaded up.

Goes personal on X/Y/Z.

There was talk he was on this board at one stage was there not?

Ewan has managed to get Gary Linekar engage with him on Twitter.

He will be creaming himself now even though Linekar just made a fool of him

He is made a fool of quite regularly (mainly by himself) but it never seems to phase him.
