Kim Bielenberg: Trapattoni – from ‘cat in the sack’ to cataclysm
IT is a mark of how far Ireland’s footballing fortunes have fallen that pundits are suggesting that if we beat the mighty Faroe Islands, Giovanni Trapattoni might survive.
Of course, it could happen. The ball has been known to bounce in peculiar ways. We could beat the Goliaths of global soccer.
The Irish manager may be lucky, and the islanders’ star player might go fishing, or get delayed at the bottom of a fjord. So, we could win.
