    We should send him to Brussels to negotiate our debt write downs.
    He should have disclosed this to the public and stated exactly what the money would be used for.

    As long as the 5 million is on the books for 2010 - not on some newfound ledger - then Delaney shouldn't be fired/resigned for this particular deal.

    For sure Delaney and the rest of the the FAI should resign but first they must explain what they did with the largesse.

    The players who were cheated out of a world cup must feel sick in their stomachs after such a revelation. The current team should refuse to play against England this weekend until a full explanation is forthcoming.

    We should have known that if there was corruption we would have our snouts in the trough along with the other blathers.
    Its amazing how posters on P.ie, day in day out complain about snouts in the trough but when there is a 5 million pay off to keep us quiet they are quite happy to go along with it.

    You'd rather Ireland didn't get the €5 million on a point of principle. We could sat on arses, sucking our thumbs and sulking over Thierry Henry.

    Delaney made the best of a bad situation.

    To be honest I'm surprised FIFA offered the money as I don't know why Delaney felt he had a legal case.

    The 5 million went into the Aviva which was money well spent.

    If it was on the books, we would know about it before now.

    We can't say for certain what legal action would have yielded or even the pressure for legal action. The French players were ok with the possibility of a replay, it was the coach that shot it down, figuring that by the time the WC rolled around, all would be forgotten and the French public would rally around the team.

    As someone who was in Paris where the scummy Arsenal player handled I am more than happy to have got the money.

    Laurent Blanc called it correct regarding French football on the day after.

    The fact the French team imploded in itself saw justice being done.

    We gained more from it and getting the cash evern better.

    You didn't get any money.

    You're one of the Irish supporter dolts who was screwed!!!

    Why. And what exactly does the public need to know.
