I’ve been following the whole new boss story on The Score since it broke, and have heard some good suggestions from various articles in the comments sections. My synopsis of it would be: bring in O Neill. Good track record, probably the safest bet even with a blip at sunderland. Its an international job. ie. He’ll work with the team for about a month or two a year. In other time, attend games, and promote the game to youngsters. Imagine if McCarthy showed up at your summer camp in 2003? Or Trap in March before euros? Get kids enthusiastic. On the note of development, bring in Liam Brady to the youth development program, doesn’t have to be manager, but we could do with churning out youngsters like they do at Arsenal. And let Delaney go to greener pastures, and bring in someone who doesn’t constantly look like he forgot to turn of the immersion…

    Agree with all of that but I’d add Brian Kerr into the mix too. He has to be utilised in some way, the only coach we’ve ever had who’s achieved something with our national teams. Senior job was a step just too far, but there’s no doubting his track record with underage teams. Hell, the man even picked up a few results for the Faroes. It’s pure negligence that he’s been left to twiddle his thumbs waiting for a role, while the FAI appoint a series of journeyman Dutch coaches to oversee the game at grassroots.
