That interview in the Irish Times is fantastic. If he speaks like that when he meets with the FAI it would be hard not to give him the job. 
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes an even bigger man to laugh at that man.

The Irish Times piece is like a public interview for the job (and it's an impressive one) - he has nothing to lose at all by putting it out there too

Some great quotes from him here in my opinion. He obviously has a huge amount of self-belief, would love to see him get it 
I would have been on the fence before reading that, it's a no now. A distinct lack of pragmatism and realism. 
 
If Guardiola was a Dubliner you'd find fault......
If he was a Dubliner he would have loads already...
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.

Agreed. He comes across really well in that article.

If Barry Town won a few Welsh league titles,in an uncompetitive league,maybe even  a 2 horse race,would their manager be in the running for the Welsh National job? Genuine question

clearly not but the LOI is ahead of the Welsh league. Dundalks european run has also enhanced his reputation obvisouly.

Barry Town are not even close to the force they once were.

Their recent run ended with a 4-0 hammering from AEK Larnaca.

I'd say if Barry qualified for the Europa League group stages and picked up a few points then their manager probably would.

Also, a league of Ireland manager has already gotten an international job off the back of winning the league of Ireland and qualifying for the Europa League group stages, and he hasn't done a bad job either.

dundalk played poorly that day, a lot of defensive mistakes and on the face of it a bad result. Larnaca went on to hammer bigger sides than dundalk at home in europe after that result. they were a decent side.

Derry beat Aberyswyth something like 9-0 on agg. a few years ago.

Although, legendary club TNS did beat Boez 4-0.

Anyone who thinks Stephen Kenny is a better option than McCarthy or Allardyce doesn’t understand football. 

I get the sentiment among LOI fans but that’s the equivalent of championing a foreigner who managed Sparta Prague and NEC Breda. 
l hear you are a racist now, father ?
