[QUOTE=Claret Murph]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 . 
 
That all seems a reasonable perspective, Richard Dunne doesn't think he is up to it either, not bad company to keep.

Granada best Getafe 1-0 in La Liga tonight. Completed 88 passes in the entire game. Perhaps Kenny could learn a thing or two from it

No thanks.

We completed 98 passes in Belgrade under O Neill. I wish that game had been called off due to the rain that day. Absolutely abysmal on and off the pitch. Would happily take current style for another 3 games before we get into the business end in March and let’s see what happens. We have failed to complete passes for years, driven fans away, bore those who’ve attended and havent near qualified (barring those 5 additional goals we’d have needed at home to Denmark). Time for Kenny

One poor example of a team winning with only 88 passes is enough to convince some that we should go back to a tactic that hasn't qualified us for the world Cup for 20 years... I'm convinced these people don't watch ireland games.

Theoretically, in order for Kenny to break even, he needs to be ireland manager for 20 years, not qualify for a world cup, qualify for 2 euros, one of which we get embarrassed in every game and go home with a single goal and another where we do.... OK

Yes, I think that achievable

I know he has been unlucky, but I don't think it's something you can learn.
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.

Isn't that "praise the youth and she will come"?
Not quite sure what flourish is in Irish, but "Fásfaidh siad" would be "they will grow".

The lack of game time for the majority of our squad the past few weeks must have Kenny worried. Randolph, O'Shea, Molumby, Hourihane, Brady, Robinson, O'Dowda, Connolly, McGoldrick & Idah are not getting a lot of minutes. Coupled with the poor form of Egan, Stevens, Duffy & Doherty to an extent, we are not in great shape for next month

Spot on with this... there's not a player in the squad that's even just doing ok 
going into these games.

Mccarthy and Coleman also injured. 

Pains me to say it but I think we're looking at two loses and a draw in a few weeks.

I do find more often than not the players we have that aren't playing regularly at their clubs do surprisingly well and maybe even overperform in some cases when they play for Ireland. I think this has been the case for a long time going back several Irish managers. 

It is a concern though the lack of game time a good few of our players are getting all the same. 

I'm unusually optimistic for the November matches. We'll lose to England but will get the required 3/4 points from the Wales & Bulgaria games to stay in League B. We'll be 3rd seeds for the world cup draw in December imo.
