I get the sentiment among LOI fans but that’s the equivalent of championing a foreigner who managed Sparta Prague and NEC Breda. 

Maybe they do and don't want to watch us park the bus for another 4 years.

McCarthy has been tried and failed. Allardyce is a corrupt fat f**k.

No doubt Kenny has done well with Dundalk. But I don’t buy this “he deserves a go at the top job”at all.

Agreed and neither do I. His credentials are world's apart from Mick or Sam. It's not even a contest.
Kenny has 0% win record after 11 games including a home loss to Luxembourg

Laughable that for every player or manager we pick we have to see how they do/did in England. Maybe we are their B team.

Croatia would give a manger from their league the national team league without even winning it.

McCarthy has been tried and failed. Allardyce is a corrupt fat f**k.

How did McCarthy fail exactly ? 

He was one of 2 managers who got us to a World Cup in 88 years of trying. Some of yis need a reality check. Getting to a World Cup is the only success we will ever achieve.

We had a good squad at the time, for a weak world cup. The chance was there to do well. Then he alienated the best player we had and didn't even notice the opposition had less players than us.

On a point of pedantry, which is unlike me... Barry Town went to the wall and a new club called Barry Town united was formed. They were promoted last year and currently lie in third, level on points with TNS and a point behind Connah's Quay Nomads.
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.

If you are looking solely on what both candidates have achieved recently Micks achievements are much much greater than Kennys IMO.  No silverware granted but the job he did at Ipswich was nothing short of amazing considering the financial restrictions he was under.  Look at the state they are in now.  Regardless of what peoples perception is on his style of football he is the standout candidate of the two by quite a distance.  Personally i'd be looking further afield and taking a bit more time over the decision but if it is purely down to these two then it's Mick for me.

Taking absolutely nothing away from Kenny and the fantastic work he has done at domestic level but he wouldn't be my choice for this job just yet.

Mr. Burgess managed Barrytown.

I find it bizarre clubs calling for Kenny to be manager. I have never seen the likes.  I have to say its just an attempt to usurp the Dundalk gravy train.
So you've decided to read this eh?

When Pat Fenlon was winning leagues and doing very well in Europe,was he ever championed for the top job? I can’t recall but I’d highly doubt it

Yeah, well, that's just, like, your opinion man.

Do you need to know a lot about football to realise that the team you are playing against only has 10 players on the pitch and that your own team now has the advantage of having an extra man?

Is keeping Ipswich in the Championship really better than getting Dundalk (who were in the gutter when he took over) to the group stages of the UEFA Cup? I'm not sure I'd concur with that. Mick did a good, solid job with Ipswich; but what Kenny has done with Dundalk is incredible.
We're decent enough..

Exactly. I would be shocked to the core if Delaney went for Kenny...which he won't. Good domestic manager no doubt but not for International level.
