Looks like he is stopping, will get a reprimand to be careful in future, but seems the video was 2 and half minutes showing famous Irish goals v England Houghton, Sheedy etc, (surprised it came to 2 & half minutes), then 30 seconds of how Ireland overcame a bigger foe when the odds were against them etc, with a bit about the easter rising which the Mail said was the problem (FFS some people on here jumped on a bandwagon stated by the Mail, you need to take a long hard look at yourselves).

So far none of the players have come forward with an issue about it, it was a bit cringyworthy if anything, wasnt as if he had them all on chairs shouting IRA chants (to be honest hasnt been much appetite in the squad for that since Declan left for pastures knew).
Seems one of th senior members of staff didnt want it played and complained and leaked the story as either he wants Kenny gone, or is one of the coaching staff who wants the senior gig, we will know soon enough when they leave by mutual consent before Christmas (my money is on someone who appears on the ex-wolf watch).

Should he have done it definately not for variety of reasons but it as behind close doors and it wasnt as if he insulted England by calling them a shitty country like another coach said about Ireland (lets call him Eddie).

As for DDW comments, sorry mate but what a pile of shite, this was the shit pundits like McAteer, Babb, McGrath, Aldridge etc were sayign before a ball was kicked because Kenny didnt come up the traditional way.

Anybody he hasnt picked who he should have? No
Would we have done any better with O'Neill or Mick in charge? Very unlikely we have been on a downhill slope since 2012 with the odd good win here and there to paper over the cracks and since we beat Italy reserves at Euros 2016, despite the millions we paid O'Neill, Keane and Mick only decent result we got was in Wales with a real smash and grab job.

As for goals since we beat Moldova in 2017 only time we have scored two goals in a competitve game was in one match against Gibralter, last Euro qualifieers in a group with Gibralter and Georgia we scored 7 goals in 8 games. When McGoldrick retiring is seen as a blow as he is your main striker, you know you are in trouble.

We are just not very good, but the pundits just say with Mick and o'Neill they havent got the players, but with Kenny they say he is out of his depth becuase he is not part of the old boys club. Although the results are the same and he is trying to play football.

Fact is he has had 1 competitive match (which should have won, 6 glorified friendlies and 1 friendly against superior opposition with a squad which has been decimated with players dropping out with Covid.

Needs to give him a chance with a proper campaign to see how he gets on.
No one has him bang to rights on here, if you look at my statement it said “if any truth” so I won’t look at myself hard because I’ve not accused him of anything.

As for the state of the Irish national team it’s purely down to having a very week playing staff to choose from. Probably the weakest in 35 years. Personally I don’t think many coaches could do that much with the players he has to work with.

Err that comment about the Mail was made tongue in cheek, but if you want to get upset about it work away.

Agree with you about the state of our squad.

Ahhh now Donegal, have to disagree with you about Kenny.

I hoped he would work out and bring some fresh ideas and in the first few games we looked decent, even though we couldn't finish our chances.

But the last few NL games have been woeful. Picking Doherty at LB and waiting too long to make any subs etc.
Yes, the squad is the worst we have had in years but I also do not think hes getting the most out of what he has

Not strictly managerial but close enough, Alan Pardew unveiled as CSKA Sofia technical director

I'm not sure I want to imagine what a Dave Edwards team would look like.

There'd be a lot of hard work, finger pointing and people running away from the ball.

Possession: 0%

Rooney will be the new manager knew way or another. Morris stays then because they can't afford anyone else. Sheikh comes in then because it's your classic glamour managerial appointment
The delay in the takeover has killed Rooney's chances. Played 2, lost 2. Probably in Derby's interest in the long run.

Colin's name is well deserved, but grudging admiration for the results he gets at Championship level if not the philosophy behind it

As if Steve McClaren going back there as technical director.

Have a look at the front of Derby Telegraph if you get it TT. "McClaren special on p45" he'll be getting another p45 soon enough.

Colin won't want that offer - he would like another promotion which he won't get with Derby this season and doesn't have many years left
