Steve Staunton is the new Ireland manager!

Mother of god, what are the FAI thinking? We’re not involved in the 2006 World Cup, and now I think we may as well forget about the possibility of being involved in Euro 2008 too. I hope I’m proved wrong though.

I’d have much preferred Roy Keane getting the job, even though I don’t think he’s up to the task either. I hope that Sir Bobby Robson ends up being very influential in his role as that’s about the only saving grace about this whole appointment fiasco.
