Ireland still a laughing stock in women's football
« on: March 23, 2012, 09:25:18 PM »
Susan "SuRo" Ronan today named her Ireland panel for the EURO 2013 showdown with Scotland in Edinburgh.

Farcically, the squad contained Mary Therese McDonnell and Michele O'Brien.

A clear sign Ireland are picking Yanks who will pay their own way over - despite having NO IDEA what form the players are in.

Flame-haired "MT" has been listed at Chicago Red Stars: a club where she was on the books in 2009, before being released without playing a first-team game.

She's had her feet up ever since.

Sibling Shannon played for the Red Stars in the WPSL last season - is it Shannon they intended to call-up? Is it Shannon they have actually called-up?

Surely no-one at the hapless FAI has a clue.

Ireland legend O'Brien has never once let the country down in all her appearances in the green shirt.

With stints at English clubs Wage-cheat FC and Watford on her CV no one can doubt her ability.

But she is still listed as playing for Red Eleven: a club which went down the plughole in 2010.

In actual fact Michele has been twiddling her thumbs coaching at a local college for the last two years.

With the slick French disappearing over the horizon, realistically Ireland and the Scots are playing for the right to be stuffed in a play-off by a lukewarm team like Denmark, Russia or Iceland.

But that does not mean the team should still be run as a ramshackle joke!

Ireland Squad:

Emma Byrne            Wage-cheat FC

Eve Badana             Drexel College

Yvonne Tracy           Wage-cheat FC

Louise Quinn            Peamount United FC

Megan Campbell      Raheny United FC

Sophie Perry            Chelsea FC

MT McDonnell          Chicago Red Stars FC [sic]

Grace Murray           Peamount United FC

Niamh Fahey            Wage-cheat FC

Ciara Grant              Wage-cheat FC

Marie Curtin             Cork Women’s FC

Julie Ann Russell       Doncaster Belles FC

Aine O’Gorman         Doncaster Belles FC

Fiona O’Sullivan        Soyaux ASJ

Ruesha Littlejohn      Liverpool FC

Denise O’Sullivan     Cork Women’s FC

Shannon Smyth        Amazon Grimstad FK

Michele O’Brien        Chicago Red Eleven FC [sic]

Diane Caldwell         Avaldsnes FC

I would be surprised if Ireland makes it to the 2nd place of Group 4. Unless they have vastly improved at the Algarve which is possible, they were relying on two main players for the goal threat. They are a well organised side difficult to break but don't score many goals. Wales and Scotland have more creativity in their game.
They did beat Wales away though thanks to defensive mistakes and 2 quality strikes.
So another surprise in Scotland cannot be discounted especially with the Scotland goalkeeper.

I enjoy Elees posts, always tongue in cheek, bit OTT with legal actions, have some of you ever seen what mens football forums can be like? lol   Battlegrounds where no prisoner is taken.   Try a quick glimpse through this one to see what i mean.   www.pne-online.net

yeah men's football forum are full of ... I actually moderate the official one from my team in France and it is a bit of fun at times  :P
On the salary cap matter suffice to say any team who has suspicions should contact the FA and see what happens next. There are guidelines for that kind of matter in the FA WSL handbook...

Huge apologies to anyone I inadvertently offended.  :(

Just so I know, what is it I'm not allowed to mention? Ireland being a shambles or Arsenal making a nonsense of the WSL salary cap?  ::)
