Back in 2010, Fergie issued a declaration from on high that all Manchester United youth players were banned from wearing gaudy coloured boots up until the point they forced their way into the reserve/senior squad at which point the restrictions were lifted.

Ever since the Boys in Green performed rather miserably at Euro 2012, all has not been well in the Irish camp, with players moaning in public, throwing strops at airports and generally adding to an air of disquiet around Giovanni Trapattoni's Irish regime.

A manager stuck in his (quite dated) ways, the legendary Italian has overseen a poor start to the World Cup qualifiers, culminating in that hideous home 6-1 mauling at the hands of Germany.

A terrific little player, Damien Duff has decided to hang up his boots for the Republic of Ireland after picking up his 100th cap at Euro 2012. The move by the 33-year-old comes hot on the heels of Shay Given's decision to do the same.

The gifted wideman has enjoyed a fantastic club career with Blackburn, Chelsea, Newcastle and his current club, Fulham, although it's probably fair to say that he never quite hit the heights that his talent, back at the turn of the millennium, hinted at.

One of the best goalkeepers to ever grace the Premier League, 36-year-old Shay Given has decided to retire from the international game after racking up 125 caps for the Republic of Ireland, a record for the Boys In Green.

The Aston Villa glovesman, oft described (erroneously) as a 'short goalkeeper' (he's 6'1″), wasn't at his best in Ireland's disappointing Euro 2012 campaign, and after much thought, decided the time was right to step aside.
