    dont forget nearly 20 years ago when stephen managed us he was irish under 20 manager or something like that. brian kerr was manager with st pats ath and then went to irish underage team. I like to think if Stephen takes it he will make a huge difference to the irish underage structure.

    Have to say I’m gutted. If he’d left for the main gig then fair enough, but the u21s? What if he’s a disaster with them, does he still get the main job. If he’d stayed with Dundalk and continued his success he’d have been a shoe in next time anyway.

    This is all very strange.
    If McCarthy does really well, we send him packing.
    If Kenny has a nightmare with the U21s, we give him the senior job.
    I don't get why this decision has been made.

    However, from a purely Derry City point of view, happy days!

    I'd say he will be top of the list.

    It's not that strange really, if anything it's the first bit of forward thinking the FAI have shown in an age.

    The only slight potential for confusion is if McCarthy completely overachieves, but I think that's a relatively safe bet.

    The point is that this is (reported as being as, anyway) with a VIEW to taking over the senior team, ie this affords both Kenny a good opportunity to acclimitise to an international set-up before jumping straight into the big one, and also the suits an opportunity to weigh up his performance at a lower level.

    It's not as if it's set in stone that Kenny gets it regardless of whether he completely bombs or not.

    It's been proven over the years that planning ahead in international football tends to bear fruit. I don't trust the FAI to actually pull anything off and the McCarthy appointment in isolation couldn't be duller, but credit where it's due I think this is actually a smart move all round.

    And it'll probably even things up a bit in the LOI and all. Grand job.

    Its a PR stunt by the FAI.

    The reaction to McCarthy being appointed shocked them and this is their response.

    I can understand Kenny being tempted by the opportunity. I hope, for his sake, that they don't screw him.

    Obviously I don't want to lose JC, but I would absolutely die laughing if he's been approached for it. Just imagine their fans reactions

    Does Long not already have a day career?

    If it's not Long approached for the job I can't see many other suitable candidates around the league, Kenny Shiels may actually be the best of a bad bunch available...
