Trap brings back feel-good factor

MANAGER Giovanni Trapattoni is the best thing to happen to our Ireland football team since the Jack Charlton era of the 1990s.

But he does not have the same range of players as Charlton had. Mick McCarthy, Roy Keane, Denis Irwin, Steve Staunton, Paul McGrath, Dave O'Leary, Packie Bonner, Ray Houghton, Niall Quinn, and Tony Cascarino played as a unit for quite some years so there was talent and consistency on display.

Since then, teams have been average, with our current captain Robbie Keane our highest ever goal scorer for Ireland, but unfortunately not playing regularly for Spurs.
