Show Trap the door and bring back Mick McCarthy

Now that Mr Trapattoni is likely to get the door after this latest result (2-2 draw against Austria), let’s welcome back Mick McCarthy to the position, a man who in my opinion was unfairly treated by the suits at FAI headquarters last time round.

Someone who has the record and man management skills to make the difference and bring this team to the next level. I have no doubt he will do the job for a lot less money than his predecessor or even John Delaney’s exorbitant salary.
