    The likes of Brady are a different element. They have a big opinion of themselves despite doing next to nothing of note since 2016. I would be shocked if he doesn't lool down his nose at Kenny.

    There are enough decent senior players like Coleman, Duffy, Doherty, Egan, Stephens and Randolph to look after the young lads and be a good influence in the dressing room.
    A couple of the papers said Brady was one of the senior players to speak up for Kenny, along with Duffy and Coleman. I'd imagine most of the footballing players in the squad will be happy with the way things are going. Might be your more hit and rush players like Shane Long who don't like it.

    Yep, it’ll be Allardyce, or Pardew,or someone of that ilk. I know the results have been poor, but I really don’t think people are giving Kenny a fair chance.
    Out for a spell, got neglected, lay on the bench unselected.

    Duff walks.

    Ireland under Kenny looks a bit of a sinking ship at the moment.

    Let's just hope that retirements can be kept down to a minimum.

    Who else has left other than Duff? McGoldrick - that's it I think?

    This has to be the case? I can't envisage anything else. He has a great reputation so he could easily get a good gig.

    Has he? I thought he just sat out the last trio of games (for asthma/covid/leaking the video/whatever reasons)?

    That was my 1st thought when I read it. We'll find out soon enough but seems some lads want to immediately jump on the every thing is sh1te under Kenny narrative

    He has played under Mourinho, Allardyce and Hodgson in the Premiership. Probably has mates in the championship. There's the Celtic job in the future. A lot of possibilities. It would take a very strong explanation for this given results, Robbie and leaving Celtic.

    I'd be surprised if, for example, Alan Kelly remained in his role. But members of the coaching staff can be replaced with others of commensurate ability.

    The worry has to be that, as with McGoldrick, who still had a lot to contribute, other players start to defect. There have already been rumours circulating about Randolph deciding to call it a day, which would be a huge blow.

    Our resources are already very slim.

    Yeah, that's fair, and I guess we'll see what happens Kelly in March.

    I don't get a sinking ship vibe off the squad though - albeit that the ship is so rickety at the moment anyway that any departure is amplified.

    Randolph is an older sub keeper for his club, hardly a disaster if we replace him with a younger sub keeper... some including me think it should happen anyway

    Let's see what the ship looks like after he's had a few games with his 1st choice players and not 5 different guys dropping out every game because of covid

    Still crap with no forwards!

    But yeah, I'm not too concerned (yet) about the autumn form for that reason.

    How do u know that. All we got is a press release from the FAI. Duff hasn't said anything publicly yet
