    Disappointing to see free speech and accurate commentary being censored under the guise of the Covid-19 crisis , this isn’t Hungary ..... yet

    Hungary? Nah, we thought about already.

    I didn't remove your post. Or ask for it to be removed. I valued it - it was like a Rosetta Stone for unique viewpoints and could have helped me decipher a few other posters around these parts.

    Gary Owens was on Off the Ball this afternoon. Spoke with confidence that was enhanced by a clear vision and strategy for the future. He handled questions on finances and reputation excellently and obviously has a plan for how we can improve both in the medium term.

    I was working on the assumption that the play-offs will take place before the Nations League, which may not happen anyway. I think it would be perfectly reasonable for Mick to see that through, then, rather than have the Slovakia game as Kenny's first.

    It's not unprecedented for countries to change their manager just before a finals tournament, just in this case it would be a temporary arrangement. We'd hardly be a laughing stock for coming up with a unique solution to a COVID-19 problem

    Anyway, to paraphrase Joey Tribbiani, it's all a Moo point by now - like a cow's opinion... it doesn't matter

    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    Those who want to see offence will never fail but to take offence.

    I like Robbie - but lighten up, ffs. He's not a sacred cow. But if he were, that's where we get tripe anyway.

    I'm a huge Robbie fan - more than most actually, go back and have a look. But not quite sure what he brought to the coaching set-up with the mens national team.

    Though granted, he probably put the cones out too.

    Re: Proud moment for the Airtricity League

    This appointment is a great moment for the Airtricity National League as Kenny would have done the majority of his football apprenticeship through the league environment and European club competition. It shows what can be achieved through our domestic league experience. It gives a lot of current managers encouragement and focus plus something to stride for in regards to the U21's and other underage international appointments in the future.

    Well done to the FAI on the decision and to wish Stephen Kenny all the support for the future.

    and so the petty comments continue...

    none of us is privy to what Robbie contributed during camp, scouting players etc but he comes across as too proud and committed to any cause he is involved with to simply be a hanger on

    Did you stop to think that perhaps the reason there are *petty* comments about his role is precisely because no-one is privy to what he actually contributed? (though i would hope that most reasonable people would treat it more as humorous/humourless speculation than pettiness towards Robbie). Comments about his role at the time he was brought on board were ridiculously vague.

    I felt it was an apprenticeship of sorts, willing to do anything but basically just shadowing Mick, and travel to some matches checking on our players. Then the Middlesbrough gig came along so I'd imagine his Ireland scouting duties took a back seat, albeit he'd naturally see some of them anyway in his role there.

    This obligation that we must find a role, any role, for him does seem a little daft.
