    Then I take it that Glenn Whelan's further participation in euro 2020 will be in serious jeopardy.

    Seems sensible.

    Postponing is the only decision that can be made now. Putting it off until 2021 works just fine

    Not if Mick somehow remains in charge. He’d be picking Whelan if he was playing Sunday League in a zimmer with a wooden leg and a white stick.

    Is that it for Mick now? he departs the stage before the final scene. With the Nations league starting in September, we could have a different look about us for the euro play offs in 2021.

    Assuming the Euro Finals will be put forward a year,
    OTB with Killer conclude that it has to be Mick to lead Ireland into Euro 2020 2021 qualifiers and finals (should they qualify). Therefore it follows that Mick would be in charge for the 2020/21 Nations League.
    Personally I think they are talking claptrap through their collective holes. Mick would have to be given a new contract, as opposed to Kenny who has done well, even showing glimpses of moral courage.

    Kilbane is one of the very loyal supporters that McCarthy has dotted around the media. They do well to control the narrative that lot. Do we know what Gary Breen and Niall Quinn reckon?

    Anybody ask Roy Keane ? Mind you Roy is not so chatty / mouthy about Football Management since he found out it was a lot harder than he thought.

    I would tend to agree with Kilbane. McCarthy is there to guide us through qualifiers (hopefully) into the 2020 Euros. Otherwise Kenny would be arriving in before that process has finished. So I would think it logical that McCarthy stay until his job is complete, next year. Not his fault that a virus has ripped through the world like wildfire.
    Folding my way into the big money!!!

    The nations league is probably also in doubt at this stage...

    The promise has been made to Kenny. What would Don Corleone think about such shenanigans as to break a promise and shame Kenny in such a public fashion.

    Mick's contract is bound by time not by campaign. Not only that, but he's on an extravagant annual salary (Eur1.2m p/a) with an association tottering on bankruptcy. And his massive exit payment negotiated (eur 1.13m) just because of the short term nature of his contract. And what price his deputy, if 3rd man Robbie is on Eur150k p/a? And then the cruel joke of a Eur 1m bonus to be paid to Mick should Ireland qualify.

    I have no sentiment for Mick in that context, he's a burdensome remnant left over from the FAI's era of delusional ostentation.
    Should the promise made to Kenny be honoured, he could well happen to have 6 Nations League competitive games to mold a team in his image before the Euro playoffs.
    Anyway this is probably a discussion for another thread.

    Mick walks this summer, regardless of Euro qualification or not. It shouldn't be any other way, or it makes a total shambles of his contract.

    Whatever might be negotiated, the blunt fact is the FAI doesn't have the money to extend his contract.
    Covid-negative, maybe; I haven't checked.

    Any talk of Mick hanging on until the Euros is nonsense. For 1 we arent even qualified, largely down to him setting up to play for a draw away to Georgia in a must win game. There is no guarantee that we would even get through the playoffs. Finishing 3rd in that group does put him in a position that we are all calling for him to stay irregardless of Kennys contract. If we had played great football and finished top of the group things would be different

    I'm amazed this match hasn't been formally called off yet. EU now bringing in a 30-day travel restriction, so there's no chance it can happen - but just surprised the call hasn't been made yet. (Or have I just missed it?)

    UEFA meeting tomorrow, believed to be about potentially moving Euros to 2021. I imagine playoffs will be part of that discussion.

    Danish newspapers reporting that euro 2020 hotel reservations in Copenhagen have already been cancelled by UEFA.
