    Kenny and Rovers part company

    http://www.rte.ie/sport/soccer/irish...y-with-rovers/

    Strange timing, they're still in the Cup and chasing Europe. Should have waited until the end of the season at least, or else sacked him earlier in the season when they still had a chance of landing the title

    The SFAI are the governing body for grassroots football in Ireland, not the FAI. Its success or the lack of is all down to them.

    Astonishing that any experienced manager could have done so badly with the squad and resources he had at his disposal. Declan Devine will be looking over his shoulder about now....

Stephen Kenny would be a decent appointment for us but personally I would like to see Pete Mahon, he usually does a good job with young players, which we have shed loads coming through.

    I think rovers should have made this call a lot earlier though.

    Rico one of the favourites straight away?

    Will Bohs be offering Agent Kenny a lifetime membership for his antics in Tallaght? Didn't expect him to be there next season but surely it would be more financially prudent to wait until the seasons over before getting rid?
    For once maybe someone will call me "sir" without adding "you're making a scene."

    It`ll cost them more than money. He had put together a nine match unbeaten run before last night (I think), I thought they were cup favourites until I saw what a rabble they were last night. Gettting rid of him may spur them on or it might just degenerate into civil war among the pro and anti- Kenny players.

    The term "hero" is bandied about far too often. On this occcasion it doesn`t sufficiently serve to describe the selfless bravery of a lone operative behind enemy lines, aided only by three quarters of his squad acting as special agents.
    My thoughts are with the countless other devastated Bohs fans at this sad time

    Very unfair to sack him as he was doing such a great job! Oh well, well done Stephen and thanks for everything. Mad that it was a Sligo man who ended it all too.

    I cant believe Stephen has gone. A week before the league cup final against drogs.. It reminds me of 2004 when Stephen got the sack from Bohs a week before the league cup final against us and after they were knocked out of europe early. spooky or what?

    Rico must be a front runner. Steady hand and all that.

    Rumours a few weeks ago was that he wasnt sacked after the last bad run and the 4-0 against us as they were waiting for Fenlon to get the sack. Dont see it happening now obviously.

    Funny how things change but i didnt see this one coming even after last nights defeat. In fact, they should have let him start next season too and i mean that honestly. It can be a period of adjustment for managers that takes time to get used to. Now Rovers are stuck near the end of the season with players who are tied to them and apparently dont really care for the jersey (we could have told you that SRFC). All a bit kneejerk if you ask me.

    Hope they get Sadlier in...

    They were putting in performances away from home but not at home. Some impressive away wins recently, including being behind, at Derry, Drogheda, UCD and Cork in particular.

    At home, a different story. Despite the record since the 4-0, the position was untenable after it.

    Tell all the Bohs you know
    that we've gone and won two-in-a-row
    and it's not gonna be three
    and it's not gonna be four
    it's more likely to be 5-1.

    Scary thought, would the requisite period of cleansing be over to have the man who never had a club relegated back in the gate? He's a better bet than Sadlier anyway.
