I'm guessing it'll be Mick McCarthy, Mac.

He's looking really good as a manager this season because Ipswich have fallen apart without him. smiley - laugh

The alternative would be a guy called Stephen Kenny who is doing a remarkable job at Dundalk FC but I reckon they won't consider him high profile enough.

The problem is that O'Neill has left the job as something of a poisoned chalice. we're third seeds and there's now the possibility that the unfortunate new man will be faced with trying to finish in the top two of a group containing France and Germany. smiley - grrsmiley - grr

Sam Allardyce is also on the bookie's shortlist. They wouldn't, would they? smiley - erm

smiley - grr

Jack, why would Fat Sam risk his 100% international record? smiley - whistle

I suppose isn't wasn't so bad when McCarthy was there the first time.

It's a shame Keane won't be there to tell him exactly where to stick it again. Or maybe he required himself to the FAI or Walters. smiley - biggrin

So we were allowed to win yesterday, Mac.

Obviously the Gods have decided to throw us a bone before screwing us entirely this week.

Spurs must be rubbing their hands with glee. smiley - grrsmiley - grr

Jack I feared the worst with that freekick at the end but they obviously fell asleep with who they let take it.

Also, it turns out Ireland have appointed both McCarthy and Kenny. I wonder if Allardyce is pencilled in for 2022.

Back to us, it's good to have a win but obviously the reserves will get a hiding in Ukraine to set us on our way with successive losses to Spuds and Man Utd.

No doubt, Mac.

And, as if to confirm all that, Mike Dean has been chosen to referee the North London Derby. smiley - doh

The Gods aren't even trying to hide their malign intentions. smiley - grrsmiley - grr

Well, that was pleasant, Mac.

We overcame Spurs and Mike Dean simultaneously. Happy Days. smiley - ok

Although, now I come to think of it, this is most likely to be a precursor to something horrible. Obviously we're going to lose to Man United. And obviously our manager will be sacked as a result of such a humiliation. Like Mark Hughes was. And we can forget about that Carabao Cup. smiley - grrsmiley - grr

That was most enjoyable Jack but as you infer, how often is it we only get a couple of days before we have another league game after beating the Spuds. smiley - grr

We will keep Mourinho in a job which I think is too charitable despite what time of year it is.

Well, that was cruel.

Twice we take the lead but, on both occasions, the Gods only allow us to hold on to the lead for 0.0000001 seconds. smiley - grr

Of course they let us have an otherwise acceptable result come about with regret. smiley - grr

Lousy sods. And it means that I have a lot less to slag the lads about in work this morning. Bah!! smiley - grrsmiley - grr

Jack, so our players were high earlier in the season. Does that mean we're unbeaten sober so far?


The Flying Headbutt

It seems so, Mac.

Arsenal are unbeaten this season when they're not off their heads on dubious substances. smiley - erm

Although, I was beginning to wonder during the match at the weekend if they'd been on the Class A stuff again before the kick off. smiley - grr

We got away with it in the end. But not before we lost almost every single defender at the club to either injury or suspension. I fully expect the Emirates tea lady to take to the pitch as CB in the next PL game. smiley - grrsmiley - grr

Yes Jack we are cutting it fine a bit too often now.

Do we need to explain the rules to them and that the first halves of matches do count?

At least we can settle back this midweek stress free. Although it Liverpool or the Spuds drop in to the Europa League we are bound to draw one of them.
