    The FAI cant throw the manager out because some of the players dont like the way they are playing or because he "shouted" at them FFS.
    Or at least not before letting him play a half dozen games with a full panel.

    It’s bizarre that raising his voice and shouting could even be vaguely seen as a problem. I said I though he persisted with Duffy and Randolph out of fear of losing the senior players. It seems the dropping of Coleman and cutting adrift of Long might have already upset the apple cart.

    The upside might be it gives him carte Blanche to completely overhaul things and just leave out those who don’t have his back. The squad come March might be very telling.

    But like, how much of a story - really - is this:



    It still sounds like mountain out of molehill stuff, but the fact it's getting into the press is the concern. This sort of stuff should be dealt with internally.
    on face value yes, but these "losing the players" slow drips to the press almost always only go in one direction. But you can only make an assessment based on facts and we don't know many of those yet.

    Yeah, that's exactly my thinking alright, especially as Kenny doesn't have much in the way of results to keep the sharks at bay.

    It's a narrative-driven dog-pile. Next will be the Sunday op-eds about "losing the dressing room" and painting Kenny's reign as a sunk cost already. I suspect some "anonymous sources" will start making additional trouble then.

    We've seen this all before in plenty of nations and clubs.

    James McClean has come out calling it gutter journalism. He posted an image of an article which said that himself, Robbie Brady, shane duffy and Darren Randolph were uneasy.

    The article said there was a big deal made of Seamus Coleman doing a press conference before the first game in September. That an irish player “of that stature” had never been asked to do a press conference knowing they weren’t going to be starting. “The humiliation suffered by Coleman went down like a lead balloon”.

    It’s such bull****. He’s the captain. It’s the first game in charge. It makes total sense that he’d do the press conference before the start of the campaign. I genuinely remember Cyrus Christie doing a press conference before a game and not playing at all.

    Can’t imagine anyone took issue with it... it’s just an orchestrated campaign by someone to undermine Stephen. After the indo piece, then there was the Belfast telegraph deleted article about Randolph (Belfast telegraph is also owned by the indo). Sick stuff...

    Enda Stevens also rallying around Kenny, saying he's disappointed the story got leaked in the first place. That's encouraging to see.
