Chris Sutton destroyed that eejit Ken Early on radio during the week.

The lengths the Irish football journalist clique are going to excuse Kenny is beyond belief.

Its not Kenny's fault
Its in no particular order

The players
Covid
The weather
The size of the pitch
Every Irish manager since Eoin Hand
John Delaney
The FAI
No fans
The physios
Qatar and Luxembourg becoming Brazil on the sly
The press
The pundits
The draw.
He is just unlucky

I mean the list goes on and on. There might be about 2 ie Delaney and the FAI that have some merit the rest is a load of shit. The unlucky one really gets me. If he really is that unlucky then even more reason to get him the fook out

The same crew have had the pitchforks out for Trap, MON and McCarthy for the past decade when they were pulling off some big results against better teams with a squad not notably more talented or capable.




That's the Ireland team that beat Italy in the Euros.

At that time you had:

Randolph - back up keeper for West Ham
Coleman - regular at Everton
Duffy - regular at Blackburn in the Championship
Keogh - regular at Derby in the Championsip
Ward - bit part player at Burnley in the Championship
Hendrick - regular for Derby in the Championship
McCarthy - regular at Everton
Brady - just got relegated for second season in succession at Norwich (Hull the season before)
McClean - regular at West Brom
Murphy - regular at Ipswich in the Championship
Long - regular at Southampton

Half the outfield players were Championship players then.

Was MON getting much stick at that time? They weren't great in most games in that tournament but compared to Traps euros it was a relative success. I know it all went to shit towards the end of MON's (and nearly every manager they've had) time.

italy had already qualified and rested 8 starters that night remember

Great.

That squad actually qualified for the Euros though beating the then World Champions enroute to qualification.

Apart from his last year MON's reign was successful enough iirc

The players, the FAI and John Delaney are all valid reasons. Id be critical of Kenny but the issues go far deeper. I wouldnt sack him

From the Irish football journalist clique it was pretty relentless.
The same crowd who were on Trap's back from the start and also with McCarthy.

The same crowd who are falling over themselves trying to make excuses for Kenny.

In fairness he retired due to injury.

Jack Charlton was of the opinion that Ireland were underachieving, considering the players that were at his disposal

You couldn't say that today.

Surely the BIG can bate Andorra.
Not sure about Hungary. .

I was watching this recently. The RTE panel discussing O'Neill and Keane. 8 years ago. The optimism from real football people
It didn't go anywhere. Neither did McCarthy 2.0
The system is broken. 8 years wasted.

Kenny saying no player development for a decade. He's right. Even Scotland can do it. FFS

Surely Kenny will get his first win tonight? If we dont, I dont think I can stick the Kenny fan boys trying to put on another positive spin.
