Republic of Ireland boss Mick McCarthy's second reign has gotten off to a positive start with two wins from two after Tuesday night's 1-0 victory over Georgia.
In many ways, it was a performance we have come to expect from a McCarthy team; organised, well-drilled, fully committed. Yet as far as the manager is concerned, this is the only aspect of the previous reign that he wants reminding of.
Prior to the Ireland game, McCarthy spoke to Sky Sports and was predictably and irritatingly asked about the infamous Saipan Roy Keane fall-out.
As is his want, when asked questions he doesn't want to answer McCarthy manages to defuse the situation with some sharp humour.
McCarthy was in no mood to walk well-worn ground and explained he now has a method dealing with Saipan questions.
"There is a competition in my house, I tell you. Whoever mentions it gets dick of the day, congratulations!"
? - 'Congratulations, you're d*** of the day!' ?
Mick McCarthy doesn't like being asked about the 2002 World Cup...?
