In relation to Kenny I believe at worst he would have done as good as McCarthy.

I had reservations before McCarthy came in and they bore through.
I feel where McCarthy fell down Kenny wouldn’t have in the same situation.
Namely he would have gone for it more away to Georgia and at home to Denmark.
And more importantly I think he would have been less stubborn with player selection Mick brought in the younger lads but it was like pulling teeth.
I think the omission of Shane Long was very silly we all know what he can and can’t do but surely he was worth his place in the squad.

And to finish Kenny might not be the great white hope either he has had a decent qualifying campaign but this is with probably one of the best u 21 teams we have ever had who have played good football and performed very well under other coaches all the way up so there results are to certain degree to be expected.

For all McCartyhys failings his experience and the way he has changed the atmosphere in the dressing to a positive one must have counted for something.

Do you believe Stephen Kenny would have us qualified by now? The context is you wanting him appointed solely on the basis of a good campaign at underage level. Appreciate you avoiding the "couldn't do any worse" line.

I think Kenny will care more and put more effort in and try and make us play a better brand of football.

My reservations are the players dont buy into it.

Mick's second reign will be looked back on as a disaster after our campaign ends with a whimper in Slovakia.
The Sidam touch of our former dear leader will strike again. 

Hopefully Kenny breaks the curse!

The draw and Randolph time wasting in Georgia was unacceptable but you really couldn't fault our approach in the Denmark home game. We played well and were unlucky. McGoldrick's miss and Doherty switching off for their goal can hardly be leveled at the manager's door tbh. Our performances in Gibraltar and Switzerland were a lot more damning of McCarthy.

Has Kenny got a big honker? Otherwise  nothing in common. You champion Kenny on the basis of a campaign with an underage squad hailed as a vintage crop. It's hard to believe a tough taskmaster such as yourself deems that enough for the senior role. Why?
Good onya, Trap. How they hangin', cobber? Great pointer, matey - taaaa. Over that steamy car incident yet, possum? Gooood. OK, OK, you're right back on topic here on Jumbo Hour . . .

we knew we had to win both games and never looked like doing either.
Our approach against Denmark was too conservative we had a few half chances We played on up top.
Not for a minute we’re the Danes in Danger if not qualify they were there for the taking and we didn’t do enough.
In the Denmark game McCarthy took off Hourihane our set piece taker where we get a lot of joy from and let in our defensive midfielder in a game we had to win.

Come off it you can lay loads of Blame at McCarthy in the Denmark game also

No.  I have faith in him for the football he played with Dundalk in Europe with very ordinary players that he was able to recreate with The EIRE.

Stephen Kenny's CV is light-on. You're investing the future of Irish Football on the basis of about ten underage games. We should have tested the market and seen who's available. Your support for Irish managers over the past 25 years has been derisory - Kenny will be no different.

No Houghton at all, I very respectfully advise, King_Kenny. Testing the market was the preferred strategy of myself, and Trap junior, bless him.
