Hi Marco, actually the free seats allocation is not random at all. They go in a precise order, but Ryanair wouldn't tell you this, because they want to sell. I am saying this because I analysed their allocation system and it seems that they start allocation from middle to back and to front, 1 row at a time (rows: 18, 15, 19, 14, 20, 13, 21, 12, ...). When allocating the seats on a certain row (let's say 19), it goes from left to right: 19A, 19B, 19C, 19D, 19E, 19F. Of course, the premium seats are the last to be allocated, as they hope to sell them.

So, if you know the algorithm (I wrote an entire blog post about it here), it's easy to "choose a seat" by just choosing when to check-in.

By the way, I used to hate Ryanair too, but I like their recent changes.
