|Bringing GB back|
at 22:55 7 Jan 2017
When in charge of Ireland, Jack Charlton said he would stay as long as the fans wanted him. His successor, Mick, who had profited from Jack's boorish playing style, at the expense of superior players, doesn't seem to buy into that part of big Jack's approach. I think this is exacerbating the frustration. There is a financial reality but given how Portman Road seems to be simmering, I'd hope common sense would enable a settlement.
ME has looked for managers with proven track records of promotion. Go a step further and add a manager with a proven track record here.
Bring back George. Mindful of the importance of Dale Roberts contribution back in the day, he would need a good assistant. GB and McGreal would my choice.

When QPR sent Sandro in, I said to my mate "they're sending in a wrecking ball". On 75, he was writhing. A dear old lady behind me, who had been talking about XMass, families and gentle worldly matters yelled "Get up you puffer".
Webster is class. I was happy today. More to do, of course, but a lot of positives to balance the frustration of last week.
And I made it from the door of the Gatwick Express to gate 11 in 7 minutes. Last person to board the flight back to Dublin. I persevered and I made my flight. I'm taking it that there was a message for me in that.

In London that Saturday so going to QPR game.
Over and back via Gat wick. Ive checked out trains etc.
Is it better go Gatwick - Ipswich, Ipswich - Gatwick or is to and from Liverpool St better? Any other suggestions welcome. Thanks in advance.

In ease of any misgivings you may have over Brexit the disappointment you may feel following your defeat to Iceland, at least, being British, you may now offer your unbridled support to the Scotsman in the tennis and the Welsh later this evening.

Dieter Hamann (on RTE) said England haven't scored from a corner in a competitive game for 6 years.

Dunphy is generally outspoken. If, as many (but not him) expect, Ireland fail to qualify from their group, he's already got his knives sharpened.
There were some media comments that Martin O'Neill hadn't signed a new contract and was keeping his options open, and others which suggest the present management have gone off to France with a new contract in their pocket.
I had a friendly pint with a "well placed source" who believes Mick will be the next man at the helm for Ireland after O'Neill. I'm not so sure.
I've committed treason by the way. I've stuck €10e/w on England. Their time has come.

Last night, he was poor.
Having scored the winning penalty, he strips off his shirt and shows off his pecks, abs, tan etc to the fans. He could have left his shirt on and ran to his teammates. A telling observation from a pundit that I picked up on.

Mick was interviewed by Tony O'Donoghue (RTE) today. Asked about Ireland job as O'Neill hasn't signed new contract. Didn't rule it out and referred to working where is wanted. Referred to 2 years left on contract with Ipswich. I'll link a report later or tomorrow if I'm not beaten to it.

I read today that this year, the top 1% of people in the world have more combined wealth that the bottom 99%. And that the wealthiest 60 people in the world own more than the bottom half combined (3.5 Billion people).
So much and so little.
