Obafemi, Dara O Shea and Nathan Collins three more who might be pushing for inclusion. There are plenty of youngsters on the periphery who he can bring with him.

Any player who has a problem with this shouldn’t be near the national team. 

The correct decision

That still doesn’t mean he is going to be good enough. We have potential, but that’s all it currently is. 

I don’t know why anyone is worried about the playoffs being his first game. We had little chance of qualifying and we still have the same chance. We might even have a new manager bounce.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

It was a foregone conclusion we would have lost on penalties.

I think he done a decent enough job anyway brought a bit of fun and positivity to the squad again... Not saying Kenny wouldn't have but I think mick would have had a better reputation with the group when he came in. Kenny has done well with dundalk alright but he's improved his rep with the U21s if he had have gotten the job straight away it may have been a disaster

Right decision. A new manager for a new FAI. There were things that annoyed me about Kenny at Dundalk (but admittedly biased as City were their rivals) but has impressed me as u21 manager so far anytime I heard him talk. Clearly the cheaper option but to my mind just as likely as Mick to qualify for Euro 2020/21 (not very) but definitely more promise for better things ahead. Delay to Euros allows us to bring through the golden ish generation at u21 right now also.

As someone said, good news at an otherwise bleak time.

Because people would like him to have a couple of games first before a do or die one. Hardly rocket science to work that out.

It's more from the point that I'm sure they would have preferred to have started and ended a campaign with the same manager.

I'm not saying Kenny is a bad appointment at all, far from it , but I hope he isn't thrust straight into a playoff, would much rather he has the nations league to put his own stamp on things.

A real shame for Mick. He goes out with his head held high though and well liked by the players and fans.

Very interested to see how Kenny gets on with us and how he negotiates the play offs.

Very little is, apart from rocket science. Bizarrely. Given that we had no genuine chance of qualifying, I don’t see why it matters. I would give us slightly more of a chance now than I would have this morning, regardless of whether he has a training match against Oman or not.

Dan McDonnell saying the feeling is that the Nations League games will probably be played before the playoffs. Presuming that means the playoffs pushed back to this time next year then

Really? 

The approach to the final 3 games certainly doesn't merit his head being held high. Georgia away in particular is a huge black spot on his reign. 

Most fans were becoming very tired of the rubbish football and continued selection of undroppable underperformers. Considering the amount of money he was on, he cost very much and delivered very little.
