    'The42 understands Duff’s problems were primarily with the FAI rather than Stephen Kenny, particularly the Association’s handling of the ‘videogate’ affair in which Kenny was found to have no case to answer by the FAI after an internal inquiry '

    Yes he bloody did, its exactly what he did:

    “I want to thank Stephen Kenny for the opportunity he gave me to coach with the senior Ireland team and I wish Stephen, Keith and the players all the very best of luck for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers.”

    Why are you making stuff up?

    Did Duff have enough cause in anyone's book to just up and leave the Ireland set up? he is a chap with peculiarities.
    it is a very strange episode considering Kelly announced his departure the next day.
    As if they couldn't live with or without each other in the Ireland set up.

    If he didn't enjoy his job he had every cause to leave. This weird notion that he should continue in a position he doesn't want seemingly for no other reason than some lads are living vicariously through an international sports team is baffling to me.

    I've been pretty lucky in the jobs I've had but the one time I wasn't happy with where I worked I went out and got another job. Why would I or Duff (or you for that matter) keep going through a situation you're unhappy in when you have alternatives? That's just self-torment and it's unnecessary.

    Why were you unhappy in that job. That's the question re duff here. If it's "my family live across the water and I miss them" fair enough that's his business and we move on. If it's the FAI or kenny or Andrew's are unbearably unprofessional, then that's different as we as fans are stakeholders etc

    Duffs family are in Dublin, afaik. He's coaching with Shelbourne under-17's for the past year, so it's not like he left to go back to England.

    Honestly it strikes me as a situation where Duff has never in his life had to “play the game” and listen to B.S. from higher ups. Most of us (sadly) have learned what we need to do/say to keep our jobs.

    In this climate of everyone constantly looking to be offended, of course the FAI had to investigate the video. They did and found no reason to take action. If that seems over the top in Duff’s view I don’t really know what to say.

    But I will say I was investigated on dubious grounds at a workplace once and it was a very unpleasant experience.

    Being grilled by wannabe corporate cops even if you know you/your boss have done nothing wrong would make anyone want to leave.

    I think most can agree that being selected to coach the national senior squad is one of the highest honors.
    And he's suddenly left all that after some rumpus to end up coaching Shelbourne kids.

    Personally I'm baffled about that decision, what happened to resolutely standing your ground and just carry on?

    there was a media report a few days after duff left saying Kenny had identified the preferred replacement for Duff but not for Kelly. Maybe that person turned the job down and they're still searching for the right candidate...

    Isn't it Dean Kiely? he was announced in January.

    Sorry, I mean the coach. It said he had worked how his preferred candidate to replace Duff (but at the time, hadn’t worked out a replacement for Kelly).

    The fact Kiely has been appointed and the replacement for Duff hasn’t been, might indicate that the person had turned down the job or there were some other complications...

    Kenny has a real issue for Serbia game with his striker options and it seems to be getting worse by the week.

    Connolly didnt make it off the bench this week.
    Idah has come on in 90th minute in almost every game for Norwich recently.
    Parrott still has no goals in senior football even after dropping down division.
    Collins on bench for Luton this week and poor goal record recently.
    Robinson didnt get off the bench at the weekend.
    Long got his 1st goal for Bournemouth so thats a positive but we know hes not going to be prolific for us.
    If we go back to McGoldrick, even he was sub at weekend and only got 15 minutes.

    Other possible options such as Odubeke and Scully not doing enough yet.

    I honestly have no idea who he should pick. Its really not the breakout season that we were hoping for.

    Hogan has four in the last ten games, so although hardly the answer to anything at the required level, he will probably be in the squad or in the shake up for it.
