"KEEP yer discipline lads” is said before every football team exits a changing room - but is this the right place to say it or should it even be said at all? There is so much to focus on in those final 30 minutes in the changing room I feel player discipline should be a given and be embedded into every player's psyche.
IT couldn’t have been any more Oirish if St Patrick himself had been led into the ring from a parlour by a legion of leprechauns and rebel snakes while munching a feed of spuds from a blarney stone and gargling a gallon of poitín with Guinness chasers, to be sure.
I MET Brian Kerr at Donegal Celtic Football Club in August 2011. His Faroe Islands team were using the Suffolk Road facilities as preparation for their Euro 2012 Qualifier with Northern Ireland at Windsor Park
When Jim McGuinness took over as Donegal manager, he inherited a general bunch of party-loving misfits who could pull off the odd good result but consistently failed to deliver, especially against more limited opposition.
