Is Noel King gone from the FAI. Wasn't he made Head of Player Identification or something a couple of years back. 

Edit: Just seen there he left a few months back. He was with the FAI for a long time between u21s, womens team, etc. I wonder is he still in the JD camp or unhappy with FAi about how it ended.

Are managers meant to be on the ball?

Now see murph you have revealed yourself here.  You clearly have a personal issue with Kenny for some reason.  It’s not the results as they are it different to Micks and you were sharpening your knife before he even took the job.

I'd love for him to actually properly articulate his issue with SK. Something with a little more depth than the usual "unproven manager at this level, all he did was manage loi and fail in Scotland" because i dont think he has any further insights tbh.

You may well turn out to be right Murph but saying that after a few games is very harsh. Deserves a fair crack at it before that conclusion is drawn and i think the majority of supporters are wiling to give him that
Some people just deserve a slap

What is International Level anyway?
It's different for every association so are you saying he's not up to managing Ireland at International level?
If so, what is that based on because, as far as I can see, we've played better over the past five games than we have over the past decade or more.

If you think how we're playing under Kenny now is not 'International Level', wait until you look back at how we played under some of the previous regimes.
You'll be apoplectic!

What's that based on, Murph? Was Michael O'Neill not up to international level when he couldn't buy a win at the start of his reign with the nordies? Or Mick McCarthy first time round when he had to wait till his eigth game before getting one?

Most of the team can't get near a premier league team. At least he's managed players from clubs that get to Europe.

Look it's how i see it i know most disagree with me and i am fine with that . 
I don't want to go on and on so i will write it as bullet points .

Before he became manager 

When Kenny got the job he was a big fish in a very small pond .
He had two big jobs failed at Rovers and in Scotland .
Given the job by JD what are we in for a shock at the end of his contract with pay offs what we don't know of  ?
The FAI went for cheap after Mick was Kenny the best of the rest .

Since he has been in the job 
Nice football on the eye but no end product .
The system he plays we need better players .
I don't think he knows how to change any game when we fall behind .
Lost out on €9million not getting to the Euro's at very least .

Future 
A win will come .
How long will he be in the job before the media turn on him  .
After he go's will he get a job in the premier league or Championship ?

The reason i think he is not an international manager as he got lucky as he was cheap and the FAI were falling apart at the time .
I want a manager who has been around the block managed at the best leagues in the world and can bring that to the table . Kenny was outstanding at Dundalk but i think this job is far too big for him but time will tell .

I hope i have this so wrong and and we end up going to the World Cup and you can laugh at me as only time will tell .

First point - of course we need better players. But as it's international football, he can't go out and sign better player. This means he has to fill the existing players with confidence that they can actually play football.

Second point - The three previous managers were all "results-oriented", "been around the block" type managers. These managers killed any confidence in the players that they could play anything resembling football, 2 of whom even made these comments in the media.

They were also earning a small fortune.

You've labelled us not qualifying for the Euro's as one of Kenny's failures. It was his first proper competitive game FFS LOL

Anymore judging Kenny, or drawing conclusions after 5 games and a handful of training sessions, needs their head examined.

You see comments on social media about him, and you wonder have any of these people genuinely attempted real change in their own life? Has anyone walked the plank and taken that leap of faith in life, whether in career, love or otherwise. 

Drastic change in life is fundamentally tough. We instinctively rail against it. It's the reason why most people in life don't change. There are no shortcuts to anywhere worth going and that's the truth of it.

I find it impossible to believe that anybody who has stuck their head above the parapet and made that change in life could also be the same people who make comments about Kenny and what he's trying to achieve.
