    I'd nearly settle for the inconvenience just to 'get one over' on Ryanair :)

    There's a really serious situation that could play out in the aviation industry that might end up leaving people with little or no choice as to who they will fly with in the future. Most airlines survive today on the cash down on flights for months into the future, some airlines are down 70% on their usual forward bookings and without cash from somehwere else (a Government) you're going to see a lot of airlines going to the wall very quickly (in as little as a few weeks). Ryanair are one of the only airlines that would have significant cash reserves to see out a massive systemic shock like the industry is already involved in, there could be massive consolidation in this market before the summer or if not multiple airlines will cease to exist.

    I'd say he realises now he shouldn't have put it up. I think it's due a substantial fine. He'll probably do something similar in another few months though.

    Is that really a pointless decision at the moment with no matches coming up anytime soon?

    Think that’s the point though. Contract for a Kenny starts 1st August, no games between now and then. This ends speculation over Mick being in charge for Slovakia match that Is now pencilled for September

    Probably won't have any real impact on him financially, little more than you or I putting €20 in the swear box.

    Also thought it was funny btw...

    Regarding the news about McCarthy and Kenny, I think I would have let McCarthy play out the end of the current campaign...just seems the right thing to have done.

    Best of luck to McCarthy, he's not the greatest talent out there, but he's hard working and well intended, was proud to take on the job when others would quite possibly have turned their nose up at the chance to manage our current national team and that we appreciated, even if nothing else.

    It's a funny situation he finds himself in, absolutely hammered in the stands week in week out, probably suffers the most abuse of any player in the league with virtually no real media interest in it most of the time like discrimination against a black or Muslim player would garner but one fairly innocuous tweet and he's torn apart publicly by his club and fined for it. Putting yourself on a high moral ground has always been dangerous because the second you do it you're seconds away from being held to a significantly higher standard than the ones who torment you and will suffer so much more when any inevitable slip eventually comes.

    I like James and he's likely torturing himself for this poor judgement mainly because he's now "as bad as them" in a lot of people's eyes.

    Great servant to Ireland as a player and a manager ( first time round) but I’m glad he’s gone. The qualifers was so bad. And it’s not like we earned a play off spot of the back of it. We were getting one anyway. The not going for it against Georgia was baffling.
    Hopefully Kenny can have the same impact as O ‘ Neill did up north.
