Happy birthday Trap! While Giovanni Trapattoni's spell with Ireland would fizzle out at the end, we still hold plenty of fond memories of his time in charge.
We went to a first Euros in 24 years, while we also could have made the trip to South Africa were it not for an often forgotten refereeing mistakes in a game against France. (We're over it, we swear.)
To mark the great man's 81st birthday, here are some of the best snaps from his time in charge.
He was limber enough. We reckon he still could have done a job.
Name a more iconic duo.
He never lost that Italian suave.
Here he is about to drop some sick beats.
The kids loved him.
Who can forget our famous Nations Cup triumph?
Trap always had a joke in him.
But we have no idea what's going on here.
He quickly came to learn the ways of Ireland.
And he was always happy to stop for a photo.
Happy birthday Trap!
