Good at analysing games but he just didnt have the reputation or respect from the players to be successful in international management.

His style of play was not easy on the eye though

When you think the FAI sacked him and JD promised us a world class manager and we got Stan instead

Kerrs record actually is very good if you look back on it. He was way to conservative which let him down. The 2 games against Isreal ultimately killed him. Could have been so different if we won those games

France at home, the lack of tactics & spirit against Switzerland.  Hoofball up to Doherty was the only clear tactic he had.

Why has no loi club offered him a job in the last few years. Is it down to his wages he would want?

I'd imagine he probably sees the Loi as something he's done.crediable manager in fairness...alright not pleasing on the eye style wise but should of got longer in charge and even more so when you think of the cabbage that followed him.think I'm right in saying he has the highest win percentage of any ireland manager,plus he did an unbelievable job with the Faroes...good laugh as a pundit to.

With the Faroe Islands he was believed to be on around €200,000 a year.

Yeah and on another day could so easily have won both. Last minute equalisier out of nowhere in Israel and then a scandalous display cheating by their keeper in the home leg. Replacing Robbie with Graham Kavanagh in the home match probably wasn't the wisest move, but he got incredibly unlucky in fairness.
 
He was shafted by Delaney either way - definitely earned another go at qualification, especially considering who came in after him. Ouch
 
As for punditry, was easily the best co-commentator in the WC.

Bitter, bitter man.
Loves his gargle and loves his fluff.

Shambles of a manager for Ireland when you look at the quality he had at his disposal.
Given his knowledge, experience and dedicated to Irish football, the bigger shambles is him not being involved in Irish football.
