    Mick McCarthy

    I think Mick will be back in the top seat after another disappointing world cup quaflier. We havent had a good manager since .. he has passion and would die for this country unlike some of the mangers mention for the post. any one with comments on this.

    I don't think he'll be the next Ireland manager, but I have great respect for him and wouldn't be upset if he was given the role.

    He's enjoying relative success with Wolves and has them in the playoff places right now- don't know if he'd even want to leave the job for Ireland after he was hounded out last time.

    I'd rather Mick than the Terry, Andy, Barry Venison, Gabi Yorath combo that is being touted at the moment.

    From a career perspective, I don't think he is going to be offered a bigger club job than Wolves .. and the Irish job would surely a bigger job than Wolves. But cannot see it happening. Then again .. who saw a future where Roy Keane would be working for Niall Quinn.

    I think we will be offered the Sunderland job he said that one day he would hope to return to the irish job. he is still young and has plenty of experience.

    Lads,

    Take this or leave it.... I don't believe it but it didn't stop me sticking a tenner on it.. An uncle of mine works with some FAI personnel on occasion and apparently word is Mick McCarthy is coming back.. Can't believe I'm even posting it cos it does my head in when I read these "My Friends cousin says...." posts on other boards but that's what was passed on to me...
    I pity the fool!.... But suggest ways that he might improve himself.

    Not a great fan of Mick tbh. He's a decent Championship manager, no more, no less but would take him in a heartbeat over Venables. Have Hodgson and Houillier drifted out of the picture?

    same here. his time in charge was my favourite following Ireland even though I was at Italia 90. his teams never gave less than 100% and he notched up some very impressive victories along the way. the way he was booed at lansdowne V the swiss '02 was an absolute disgrace and highlighted how stupid and shortsighted some of our fans are

    Don't think Hodgson was ever in the picture - just touted by the media really. Nobody from the fai or his camp ever expressed interest

    McCarthy is one of 5/6 candidates for Australia manager. If he was asked I bet he would return. Wolves have money problems. So you never know.

    At the time of Micks reign Harte and Breen were there by merit , certainly in Breens case

    Sticking with Kilbane instead of Duff worried me more tbh and also persisting with Connolly though I accept we had a lack of options in that area he still gave Connolly far too many chances to impress.

    Agreed re Breen and Harte. there were very little alternatives in fairness.
    That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age

    Breen was one of our best players in the world cup in 2002, so to question his inclusion by Mick seems foolish.

    Ian Harte, for all his faults, was one of our top scorers during the WC 2002 qualification campaign.

    As for Kilbane vs Duff, Kilbane was in his prime then, and Duff was just breaking through. It wasn't as if Duff was excluded altogether, he was just thrown around a bit, even playing up front.

    Look at Wenger and Walcott, is Wenger going to be criticized down the line for playing Walcott as a winger right now?

    Sometimes you have to play young players out of position if they're too good to be excluded but not good enough to play in their natural position.
