    Ireland's next Manager

    Irelands next manager needs to have the following criteria ;


    1. Resident in England
    2. A proven track record in dealing with Premiership/first division players.
    3. Not likely to pine for day to day training involvement
    4. A proven track record in getting results from limited resources
    5. Hard necked
    6. Sense of humour

    Has anyone got Joe Kinnears number. Vote number1

    By the way, regarding the excuse that Brian Kerr didn't have the players, has nobody noticed that apart from Niall Quinn & the one footed Steve Staunton he had the exact same squad as Mick McCarthy. The set up was arse shaped. Give Brian back to the youths where he is bast employed.

    Joe Kinnear? Are you having a laugh. He was a disaster at Nottingham Forest and is out of touch with the modern game. Besides he is a w@nker. If you knew anything about Irish football you would know that Kinnear couldn't give a fcuk about us. The job was his for the taking in 1996 but he wanted to remain at Wimbledon. In November 1999, Ireland were playing a rescheduled game against Yugoslavia in Belgrade. It was the only competitive international being played that Wednesday. Mick McCarthy was entitled to have his players 5 days before the game. However, Kinnear led a protest on behalf of a handful of English managers who refused to release the players. He insisted that Kenny Cunningham and Mark Kennedy play for the club on the Saturday prior to the game. UEFA gave in to the wishes of Kinnear. Ireland lost 1 nil to Yugoslavia the following Wednesday. Interestingly, Alex Ferguson (who I'm not a fan of) left Roy Keane on the bench for 75 minutes of Man United's Premiership game the same Saturday. Ferguson said he was respecting the interests of Mick McCarthy.

    I'd prefer to see anybody get the job than Joe Kinnear.

    i think this is complete nonsense. There is nothing wrong with having an irish manager from ireland. its just that the media and public have to have a realistic idea of what we can achieve. Were not going to qualify for each major championships

    did he manage rotherham or something and now manager of oldham ????. Wow now we really are scraping the barrell. My preference would be leave Kerr alone in job but thats unlikely if it has to be some has been or wannabee from the epl why niot Stuart Pearce...at least no one can say he wouldnt instill passion....would hate peno shoot outs though

    Souness will be leaving Newcastle soon. He would do well for us, look at the success he had with Rangers and he would get Duff to play like his old self again. He'd give Douglas from Leeds a chance too.

    Bobby Robson seems to be the choice after Fergie/Keano duo, and that's never going to happen.
    He may be an ex-England manager, but he has a fair record, respect, and huge knowledge of the game.
    WHat ye think !!!!
    It's not actually winning that counts, it's playing the game with attitude

    I hope Kerr gets to stay on and give it one more try (if not I wouldnt mind Stephan Kenny being manager ,I think he would do a great job)
