FAI to axe Staunton ?

22 October 2007 | Ireland | 3 Responses by paul savage.

The recent 1-1 draw between Republic of Ireland and Cyprus soccer teams, there has been mounting pressure on Steve Staunton (current Irish manager) to step away. Ireland has failed to qualify for the Euro 2008 championships and there have been calls for Steve’s head. Staunton’s uncertain future has manifested talks of Sunderland boss Roy Keane taking the position, but he insists he is more than content at The Stadium of Light. “Would I consider the Ireland job? I’ve got enough on my plate to even consider it,” Keane said yesterday.”I’m enjoying the challenge here. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.We have great plans for the club.

free tickets for a manager

The FAI (Football Association of Ireland), have called an emergency board meeting for Tuesday to discuss their position.

So anyone want to be a football manager ? We’re sure there isn’t many people out there that could possibly do any worse !

Edit (24.10.2007): Steve Staunton has been sacked officially, you can read more here on RTÉ news ! Personaly I feel sad for Stan, I’ve met the guy and even had drinks with him and he is an all round top guy. I think he had a hard task to do, maybe he slightly underperformed, but at the end of the day more blame should be on the players IMHO. Stan was just a scape goat, adios amigo !

    I’m going to apply for the job just for the sake of getting a ‘You did not met the minimum criteria for the position available’ letter, and then I’m going to sue them for discrimination as they previously had a monkey doing the job. Are the FAI saying I can’t do as good as a monkey? F**%ERS!

    I would love to see that PFO letter.

    Dear Mr. Moylan,
    Thank you for your application for the position of Irish Football Manager. Sadly you are much to much over qualified for the job. We feel that putting you in a position like this would be an injustice to you. Maybe you would consider applying for the Irish Rugby Managers position instead.
