Ireland action

Quite pleased with the result personally as I concur! lol

No, with good manager he'll be great 60%

Got to be worth one more shot surely? He bossed a few games last season, I know in a poor team that is maybe damning with feint praise but then again, if he can boss in a poor team, what could he do in a good attacking team with a proper man manager?

Bit of a surprise if im honest, thought most people wouldn't mind seeing the back of him...I thought he showed glimpses of what he is capable of last year and that was under a poor defensive manager, so he could really come out of his shell under Lambert. I would give him a chance anyway, but on the other hand i wouldn't be upset if he left.

well thank f$K that 60 % arent managing the club.....

I can't understand how 31% want to get rid of him. He's the only player at the club with something resembling a footballing brain.
Stephen Jay Hawkings
Agree SJH, Meanwhile we have Agbonlahor...i'll let you work out the rest.
P.Avfc
class above anyone else at the club. I expect him to get even better next year under a decent manager
AVbornandbred
At the start of last season I would have said good bye, now I would be happy for him to stay. As was said in the article, he can only florish under an attack minded manager like we now have ( I love saying that) Ireland has talent and we will see more of it 2012/2013. COTVABU

Ireland came reluctantly but ready to play for MON in an exiting team ...... it never happened, he had personal trauma in his life and a unpopular manager forced on him twice. Ireland is exceptionally talented but is a confidence player, so needs a good motivational manager to get the best out of him and show faith in him ....... he has that now, I believe he will become better and reach his peak under Lambert if given the chance. He will see this as his last chance to shine at a big Premier League club as none of the top four or five would give him his chance. Make him captain and push him to the hilt and he will shine once more. UTV

Yes he's a great talent but I still struggle to see a balanced midfield with the players we've got. Also, I don't know where Ireland's best position is. Is it playing in the centre of midfield or maybe in the hole collecting fast ball from Makoun? Whatever, Lambert is renown for changing his formations, dependent on the opposition and I think we will see a lot of rotation next season.

I imagine that last season was a tough one for Ireland. for me his best role is in the hole behind a striker, but was that something that he was able to do with you under Mcleish. I could imagine he could be quite affective in shall we say something like a 4-2-3-1, in the centre of the three with Aggbonlahor and N'Zogbia either side behind Bent when fit.
oxfordspur
Fully rate IRELAND, great Player..imagine a midfield with makoun and ireland with an attacking minded manager!!
s444lym
A player could be reborn under a new manager, and fingers crossed that's whats gonna happen this season. Well either that or a bust up with Ireland being shipping out in a heartbeat.
VillaHippo
He's always been class but needs the right manager and now we have him, watch Ireland and NZgobia go this season
