We go again just for interest sake: Straight yes or no question

Yes - To Keep Kenny

No - For Kenny to be sacked or walk away

I have nothing against Stephen Kenny. 
I just think he has reached the end of the road with this team.

Poll at the end of the Nations League 2022 was 
Yes: 135
No: 35

I have been a Kenny fan. Hes had horrendous bad luck no doubt. But i just think we have stalled somewhere along the way and look to be going backwards. It pains me to say it but it looks like it just isnt going to work out for one reason or another.

The FAI better get the finger out and sack Kenny. We simply cannot afford to go into the games v France and Holland with this spoofer as manager. We are going absolutely nowhere.




-------------
Kenny has 8 wins in charge of Ireland after 30 matches which came against Scotland, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Malta, Lithuania, Andorra, Qatar and Luxembourg. In other words, nobody of note.

Not working out and we need to look at the results 

Surely Kenny is damaging his reputation and all the money in the world is not worth the abuse he may have to face 

He needs to walk for his own sanity

No difference from the last 2 games and the likes of oneills performances in Georgia. Something isnt right put cant blame it all on Kenny, give him the next campaign and see where we are.

My prediction was he would put in the hard yards and the transition and the next manager will bare fruit. Still think this will be the case. 3 shockers in a row now and we are going backwards again.

I voted that I wanted him gone in the last poll. The only thing that's changed since then is the awful Euros group draw. Literally the only reason to keep Kenny at this point is that any new manager is being thrown into an impossible group, so it might actually be better to let Kenny own that mess and then make the change next summer or autumn.

But that's not enough for me to change my vote. He's doing more and more damage with every game he stays in post for. So he needs to go.

Voted to keep him, dont feel we have rock bottomed yet, may as well let him see it out. 

Gone midway through the group, let the new manager come in and try prep something for a hopeful playoff, use the rest of the group for experimenting.

That Georgia game under Oneill was part of campaign that got us 2nd in the group and to a play off having reached the euros last 16

Lost all faith. Played all his favourites. Poor subs. Very conservative approach and our 'Strong' teams were rubbish against a depleted Norway and barely beat Malta only thanks to them kindly gifting Robinson the ball. Smallbone clearly has to wait another year or two for a cap so he can bed in to Kenny's amazing system clearly such coaching genius is beyond the poor lad right now.

70-30 Kenny out is some swing in the poll compared to last time. Especially as there have only been two friendly games since. Though it did seem from the comments that he got a lot of hesitant "one more chance" votes of confidence last time.

Possibly the Kennyites might be along in a while to balance the poll up when they get home from the pub.

The truth is Ali Dia could have managed the results Kenny has in his 30 matches. It is tragic that someone like Kenny is still in charge of Ireland having achieved absolutely nothing, no clear identity in how we play and dropped us further and further down the rankings.

Have backed Kenny, but it's hard to have any faith in him now. Much too conservative and stills seems to believe we can play a system we're clearly not capable of.

The last poll had reasons/arguments to stick with Kenny. Not really seeing any valid reasons to keep him now and would be genuinely interested in hearing any.

The only plausible one is the group ahead is so potentially catastrophic you may as well let him in charge for the inevitable 

I don't subscribe to this view. I want rid.

Why would a new manager take over now? No prep time and team all over the gaff. A group we'd struggle to get out of on a good day. A hiding to nothing. He'll be gone in June. There's ZERO chance the FAI are going to just give him the Euros if performances like that continue. That's toxic stuff.

I'd say Kenny could lose a million games and you'd stick by him judging by those deluded comments.  The ''bad conditions''??ConfusedConfusedConfused

Malta are pigspunk.  We had virtually our full strength team on the pitch bar maybe Obafemi. 

Its a sad indictment of the Kenny era that these mickey mouse excuses are being trotted out by the Branch Kannyians

No - every sign the team is going backwards under him. We've played four matches this autumn and have looked poor in all of them (apart from the opening 45 minutes against Scotland).

That does not look like a team that is capable of improving under SK.

Players didn't look too bothered during the game. Definitely felt like one of those "lost the dressing room" type performances.

The FAI need to consult with some of the senior players, and if that is the case, then he has to go.

That's a good point. Do the players even believe in him any longer? You wouldn't put any money on it.

Am one of the significant number who has moved from supporting SK. 

Love what he has tried to do but think we are now going backwards. For me, not having a coach in to replace AB and JH is probably the cause of our difficulties. The fact that we are so reliant on a coach is also problematic.

The senior players are the very ones that should be shown the door, absolutely phoning it in, their level of disinterest in playing for their country and their sub par level of performances lately is disgraceful. They're playing their part in Kenny getting sacked and they'll do the same with the next manager if they continue to pick them.

Its the younger lads that hes brought through from the u21s and from the fringes that are the ones buying into him and performing for him. The Bazunus, Kellehers, Knights, Molumbys, Collins, O'Sheas, Obafemi's, Parrotts, Ogbenes etc.. are the ones at least trying a leg.

The Hourihanes, Hendricks, Bradys just dont give a f**k anymore. They take it for granted they're still involved because of what they done in the past and the manager is blindly keeping the faith with them and rewarding them.

He ditched McCarthy, Arter, Randolph, Long, Brady (for a period) its time to do the same with these spoofers because they're the ones that will get him the sack.

Got to be hard to motivate yourself to play for that absolute spoofer. We're talking about lads who have played at high levels under serious managers during their careers and they have to turn up and take instructions from Kenny.

Torn on this. I don't see any manager in the world getting us out of the group. I'll not pretend to know what the players think about Kenny but I don't see a lot of improvement. I do think the Scotland game at home was the most positive I've felt. I liked the combo of Molumby and Knight with Cullen and felt that give us an identity. We haven't had that trio since Ukraine from memory so I'm holding fire. We have such a technically poor squad and have done for years. There is a dire need for improvement at under age level.

Should have happened long ago. I don't even blame Kenny cultist types. I'm more inclined to blame the Off the Ball and football journalist groupthink, all of whom have just pushed propaganda for the manager that the fans bought into.

Of course it would have been nice if an Irish manager, that came through the LOI and built his career here and actually lives here had succeeded. I'm sure that's the main reason he had any support at all and still does. Whereas an English manager or even MON type manager would have been hounded out long ago. 

O'Neill even stated this during the week. The difference he has been treated is very obvious to Kenny.

Its the younger lads that hes brought through from the u21s and from the fringes that are the ones buying into him and performing for him. The Bazunus, Kellehers, Knights, Molumbys, Collins, O'Sheas, Obafemi's, Parrotts, Ogbenes etc.. are the ones at least trying a leg.

The Hourihanes, Hendricks, Bradys just dont give a f**k anymore. They take it for granted they're still involved because of what they done in the past and the manager is blindly keeping the faith with them and rewarding them.

He ditched McCarthy, Arter, Randolph, Long, Brady (for a period) its time to do the same with these spoofers because they're the ones that will get him the sack.

Yes, I'd say he's more likely to have the allegiance of the young lads who received their debut caps in the last couple of years. Something doesn't seem right though - the team looks too cautious, almost nervous in the way it plays. Witness the amount of back passes we saw against Norway in the first half the other evening.

Don't know why it has to get nasty. 
I didn't even mean that to be nasty, it's just true. He's under qualified and not experienced in commanding respect from these players who earn mega money.

The Englishman had spoken! Close the poll.
Given half our team is English not sure your comment adds up. At least that poster is giving his honest assessment.

Honest assessment?

What we have now is apathy among fans. And who would blame them given the World Cup is starting today and it's yet another tournament we are sat on the couch for.

Many Kenny fans have repeatedly stated they are no bothered by us not qualifying for tournament if we just make up the numbers. As if we had a choice. The only choice was qualifying or not at all.

Qualifying for tournaments is more than just money it is vital for the success of the national team and even the FAI. The lowering of expectations is brutal. Every tournament we fail to qualify for is a failure and damaging. The damage now over repeated failure is massive.

We have to lower ourselves to friendlies against Malta and Norway as these are the only teams we can compete against. And even then we lose or underperform.

Soon we may need to have friendlies versus San Marino and Andorra to get a win. I would not be shocked if Gibraltar beat us next year. They have come close before.

Fair play to them they are keeping Kenny in the job. Although most hardly gave a toss and drank pints on the concourse half the match.

As I said earlier, treat it like a competitive match and you create a rod for your own back. He’s done exactly that. Tonight was a poor end, to a poor year that would suggest the progress is generally minimal, and that we are not in the sort of space we need to be, after two years.

Now, there is a point to be made that most of the players haven’t even come close to making the strides necessary to give us a solid international team. Alongside the fact that many of the senior players he inherited are regressing at an alarming rate. Bazunu and Collins have done well, but not to the level we would like. Obafemi is beginning to look no less ‘streaky’ than Hogan. Parrott is still bouncing around on various loan deals. Omibamidele and Idah (and Kelleher) have had serious injury woes. And Jason Knight is stuck in a lower league, and has lost out to a player that most fans want to move on from at Club Level.

But that being said, the football is now becoming unwatchable along with the results declining. Essentially, we are worse off than 2020. The sad thing is, I don’t know how we could possibly improve on a short space of time, nor do I think anything but a spot on match makes sense for a change in management.

Having said that, the performance tonight wasn’t good enough and the subs whiffed of holding on for the result. It’s a nothing victory and raises more questions than answers.

Kenny isn't fit to wash MONs windows

This isnt about mon vs kenny, more of a comment about lack lustre performances that i thought we had seen the back off, i dunno whats being going on but I've lost a bit of belief, obviously we dont have world beating players but the last 2 games have looked completely rudderless and devoid of anything constructive

Not a Chelsea fan. But I suppose if you want to exclude fans of English teams, English players, English coaches we would have no support or players left.

Only a few hundred LOI die hards that think Stephen Kenny is Pep Guardiola. It's sad the thinly veiled xenophobia that come out from the Kennyites.

Depends on if any worthwhile replacements are available/willing or in the frame.

If someone who can improve on the work we've tried to do is free then sure. I like Kenny, but the job has gotten to him and some of his decisions lately are baffling. He looks lost and I think it's all gotten to him. Hope he gets moved to the u21 level as he can do serious good in that role as we saw. Keeps relying on proven failures like Hendrick who will cost him his job

If the replacement is going to be another MON/Hughton type who's plan is to basically surrendur the ball and hope to nick a sh*tty goal off a free-kick then pass, as it'd have rendered whatever good from the past four years utterly meaningless.

As sh*t as we are right now the former gives some vain, foolish hope of things improving in a few years when some players come through that can actually play in a possession based system. The latter is a resignation that we're realistically finished as a serious footballing nation  and your best bet is sh*thousing a playoff.. Maybe some people are happy with that, fair enough. I'd like to that one day we could actually try to play decent football though.

Being realistic however, when your squad is comprised of players who arent even top end championship level footballers anymore I just think we're kinda f**ked regardless of who's in charge. Hard to see any change.

About the same to be honest. Results are worse under Kenny because Stan had better players to dig him out of a couple of holes. But overall we look about equally as clueless on the field now as we did under Stan.

i think people will be pleasantly surprised at how well we do for the qualifiers. we showed during the last batch that we played our best games against better opposition. a lot of teams in this group will take points off each other and i reckon we will be in the mix.

Where’s the vision?

I totally accept that new players have been blooded, but tonight looked like Andorra. Fire-proof the possibility of being defeated by a minnow in a friendly. The results have been poor, and the Scottish game is the outlier. Whether or not you accept it, there is little chance there will be a major difference between the team on the pitch tonight and what will play in France. It will be a difference kettle of fish dealing with Kanye, Rabiot and M’Bappe.
