With Martin O’Neill’s exit and a new appointment apparently imminent as Ireland manager, it looks as if the FAI are hoping for a quick-fix to boost chances of qualifying for the Euro 2020 finals which will be part-hosted in Dublin, says Liam Brady.
But simply changing the senior manager doesn’t begin to address the much deeper problems in Irish football, particularly with regard to the development of homegrown talent.
And, in order to rectify that, I believe that John Delaney and FAI need to take a long, hard look in the mirror. A root and branch review of how the game is run in our country is long overdue.
