Third or fourth biggest sport in the country LOL

The motivation is very simple, LOI folks want to support one of their own, SK is a reflection of their league. There was a similar pattern with Kerr initially, he was lionised by the (Irish only) media. 

Surely it's 'our' league, no? We're all Irish men (and women). It's the national league.  
 

It’s our League for sure. The problem is our League isn’t up to scratch in terms of quality. I follow it and support it but the happy clappy “best League in the world” brigade annoy me. I think that’s maybe what’s he’s getting at. 

We see our League as a “problem child” when we should be aiming to get it up to the same standard as the Danish,Serbian,Cypriot League let’s say. At this stage it’s 5th/6th division English football. 

We need to get to the stage where we have teams in the Europa League Group stages close to regularly and that the top 5/6 teams in Ireland are at the same standard as League 1 in Britain etc.

How that happens would be mass youth development from a young age and money. Unfortunately the latter is the issue. Would take a JP McManus type business figure to be very passionate about soccer like he is about GAA ideally or a government minister as passionate that invests balls deep into it.

80% voted on here for him to stay on. There’s obviously 20% oddballs on here LOL

Someone mentioned loi loyalists supported him. Would be surprised if 30% on here regularly go to league of Ireland matches ?

Nothing interesting has been posted at all, for a long time! I would include both of us in that!LOL
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.

This sh*t gets me fellas complaining what league your prefer premiership, LOI or MSL what difference does it make we all support Ireland have two eyes in our head and can see what’s going on.

Fellas saying we are passing more with Kenny don’t want to go back to caveman football well something isn’t right no win in 11
And played one good international team to date.

Where we are decent is with defensive minded players or best player is a right full back, we have decent options in goals, centreback is the position we have the highest overall quality of players with more coming through.
Left back is questionable more so with the use of the ball.

The two defensive midfielders are ok in Cullen, and Molumby or Knight.
But once we go into the attacking positions we struggle no matter what combination of players we put out the player with the best attacking returns for us this year are Collins and Hourihane and most think they shouldn’t be in the team.

So surely anyone with two eyes can see we should build a system around where we are strong?
And that is at the back if we were blessed with attacking opinions I be pushing for a system that played to their strengths.

Surely this must be Kenny’s focus from here to November.
Or maybe I’m seeing it all wrong.

Yes you are seeing it wrong. 

I don't think Kenny is neglecting one area of the pitch because his focus is elsewhere. 
We didn't concede many goals in his first few games in charge, scoring was the problem (Still is). We conceded a few more this time, but we were missing our best CB in Egan, Duffy had a serious drop off in form and Randolph, how many times does he make a big save per game? At least 1 and in contrast, at least 2 of the goals we shipped to Serbia do not happen if Randolph is goal.

Kennys focus should be to keep going while hoping some of his players come back in to form, e.g. Brady could be a missing link if he can just get himself fully fit. Byrne the same. 

Or he gets mcdoldrick out of retirement!

I was pleased to see that result. Obviously the hard core know what's up and we're sticking with Kenny.

There has been some speculation as to why Scott Hogan did not make the Ireland squad or seem to feature in Kenny's thinking. Hogan scored the only goal of the game for Birmingham last night, a last minute penalty against Swansea who left Hourihane and Manning on the bench. Hogan only came on as a late sub and the Sky commentator said that was because he has been troubled for some time by a back injury. Maybe that's why he wasn't on Kenny's radar ?

We picked a few half match fit walking wounded though. His omission was a surprise to me. What other speculation is there around this  ?

The problem with the Irish team is that the players are all Irish

The trick that Jack pulled 30 years ago won’t work now.

Those players he convinced to play for Ireland would have done it partially for financial reasons. 

Players now earn loads and don’t need extra money. Players would rather the time off.

The username is ironic. 

There are two camps in this civil war. The patient fans who see the need to rebuild the team, and the impatient ones like yourself, who want qualification at any price. 

This is nothing to do with LOI. If there was anyone out there who is willing to rebuild the team and change the way we play, then we should get him in. There isn't though. Anyone else in charge, would rely on the tried and outdated methods of the past 20 years. These days, dinosaur football is only successful against Moldova and Gibraltar. That can't continue, and we need fresh ideas. Yes we're still losing atm, but at least there's some hope of better performances and results playing this way, down the line.

It's not a case of dinosaur football v Kenny's approach.

Each manager will have his own style etc..
