    Stephen Kenny vote of confidence - Second referendum

    Following this week's performances and results, the mods were asked to revisit this poll from a few months ago - https://foot.ie/threads/265641-Poll-...-of-confidence

    Has your opinion of the national team's manager changed since then?

    Interestingly the Journal had a poll today too and it's 73% either happy or unsure about performance to date versus only 27% not happy. For me one of the more surprising things has been the relatively high support still evident in news article comments and social media comments. Based on here I'd have thought it was heading towards 60% at least not happy, but in the real (online) world it's been much more akin to the Journal poll.

    The YBIG poll is interesting, its a straight Y or N to a contract extension for SK. Its running at almost 82% yes with almost 100 votes in.

    7 losses, 8 draws, 1 victory.

    Notwithstanding the weakness of the squad, the brokeness of the FAI and other valid issues, that record, and the calibre of some of the teams we have failed to beat, is appalling.

    I don't see any signs that he is improving the team, or that we really are building something long-term. We do need a long-term plan, but I don't see him as the guy to be entrusted with it.

    He should go.

    I'm not sure it will sway your vote Osa but it is actually 7 losses, 8 draws and 1 victory.

    Surely that alone should change your mind! Also Mr. Eamonn Dunphy is in agreement with you!!

    His imagen running to celebrate a freak own goal, a Benny Hill Show or Monty Python kind of goal decides myself against Kenny. He did a few things ok but this is foitball. He has to take the best out of his playera. His best game was his first with James McCarthy pulling the strings

    I will make him run out this qualification. Will make an arrangement and would get another guy with a proven CV.

    I would say let's see how we get on against Luxembourg and Azerbaijan away to see whether we are making any progress.
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    I'm curious what it would take for some of his defenders to turn on Kenny. If he were to get another solitary point from Luxembourg and Azerbaijan away, would you still back him?

    I don't think he'll do that badly: I think he'll get 2-4 points in those games, but I think 1 point is rather more likely than 6. Personally, I think 4 points would barely be good enough, but it seems he can keep losing and be backed.

    I find this a bit incredible. I remember far more successful Ireland managers - granted, with better squads - being absolutely hammered in the media and on here for individual results and even for playing style when they were winning, and Kenny seems to have a get out of jail free card.

    Like O'Neil or Trapattoni (neither of who qualified on first go)?

    How many goes did it take them to win a competitive game?

    I think 4 points from Azerbaijan and Luxembourg is the minimum. No matter how much hope or belief I have for the plan there’s a point where the lack of wins is doing too much damage.

    And there is the key to why he’s been given more latitude I would guess. I’d like to see how those promising younger players do with him. I remember watching his U21 side against a Sweden at home and it’s one of the best displays of any Irish team I can remember. Plus the players do genuinely seem to be behind him, so I’d give him more time, probably even the next Euro campaign. Mind you he probably has to win both games against Luxembourg and Azerbaijan.
    Out for a spell, got neglected, lay on the bench unselected.

    Took Michael O’Neill a while with Norn Iron and he ended up doing alright.
