Niall Quinn talking an awful lot of sense on OTB (I know!!!) Practically making a pitch for JD’s job. Said if he was in JD’s position the LOI would be his No.1 priority


#689

Father in law worked with him in later years. Got to meet him a couple of times. True gentleman and is still well revered in Chelsea.


#690

Always a sound bloke … aside from playing with Rovers on his return …


#691

Forgot all about him .


#692

Given his record of turning Sunderland around, I think he would be worth giving the job (CEO) to for a while.
I know the comparison has been made before but there really IS no comparison between John Delaney and John Costelloe. Liam Mulvihill was a very good administrator in his time, also.


#693

Nor Philip Browne - as a CEO

If you play the way Martin prefers you have to win, it’s as simple as. People pay money for results but in the absence of that there is an entertainment aspect to it.

Martin didn’t play a great brand of football at Celtic but was very effective at a European level. If he had a decent keeper he would of won proper silverware too at that level. But Ireland don’t have a Lambert, Petrov, Sutton or Larsson.

There was a sense of hopelessness to the whole thing.


#697

Anti-MON posters were confiscated. But the point is well made, most people see Delaney as the main problem here.


#698

Kenny wants the job


#699

Such bollox if it happens. Has done nothing in recent times to suggest he deserves a 2nd bite at the cherry


#700

Well considering how Ipswich are doing since he left, I think it is hard to say that he has done nothing.

So saying I would like to see Kenny be given a go.


#701

Did I hear Kenny is 8/11 ??


#702

With all the success at Dundalk it makes a lot of sense for Kenny to be given a chance for the Emerald Isle I think.


#703

Begorrah do you think so now Ohm. Bejaysus there’d be a fair pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for him if he won us a few matches leprechauns and all that we are.


#704

I’d argue he did enough first time round to deserve a second bite of the cherry.

The Saipan incident completely undermined him. I think it’s been well proven since that Keane has shown himself as a disruptive influence many times since Saipan, thrown out of United and shown himself to be a complete disruption in the current set up (squaring up to players and completely undermining them in front of the squad).


#705

We had an awful habit of conceding late goals in his tenure. Was rescued in a number of games by the two Keane’s more than once. Told Irwin to go and prove himself the same year he won the PL, FA Cup and the European Cup. People are looking back on that through rose tinted glasses


#706

Relevance Guy???

Won’t count his later Ipswich years as he had fcuk all to work with, whereas if he gets this job …actually never mind.


#707

Different manager is merely papering over the cracks, Delaney out or it’s as you were.
