    Its was a brilliant result on Saturday, but I honesty don't think he will make it ( get the next campaign)

    He needs to win or he might possibly get away with a draw tomorrow, depending on teh last two games
    He would need for us not to get smashed by Portugal and he needs to beat Luxemburg to survive in my opinion
    the following result imo will see him sacked
    Ire v Qatar 1-1
    Ire v Port 0-2
    Lux v ire 0-0

    I like the look of that team, experimental but would be interesting to see. Robinson will surely play though, being the form player.

    Yeah, I'd agree with that- maybe in place of Connolly. This camp feels like Kenny is sending Connolly a message. See also his comments earlier in the week.

    Would love a good look at Kelleher, Collins, Knight, Ogbene and Parrott myself.

    Kelleher, as expected, will be starting: https://www.the42.ie/caoimhin-kelleh...71380-Oct2021/

    I'd agree with a lot of that. Kelleher and Knight I'm fairly confident are up to the job, but they can use the experience. Collins is worth a look, especially with O'Shea out for a while longer, Clark apparently out of favour, and a preference for three at the back. Ogbene is worth a look, as many of the players we've played at right forward are happier on the left. Parrott is a maybe for me, depending on how he's doing in training. Idah might play again, as might Omobamidele. We have too few players with even ten or twenty caps, and the lack of experience is a factor in how badly Kenny has done. The new English lad (Keane?) might get a look in too.
    Vaccinated.

    i think he might have to finish ahead of Luxembourg to get another campaign.
    Although with tomorrows game a reported sell-out the FAI might decide if attendances are not being affected too badly that SK is worth another campaign.

    Is it a sellout? Wow.

    I presume that's still with severely restricted capacity for covid?

    It'll be a factor though for sure. A popular losing team isn't the worst thing in the world commercially

    I think it's 24k capacity and they were saying yesterday 21k sold. Might get along to it myself work/ticket depending.

    We could batter Luxembourg 5-0 playing the best football we've ever played and could possibly still finish behind Luxembourg. They're a point ahead of us and still have two fixtures before they play us. They play Portugal tomorrow and we'll have to better their result when we play Portugal, or hope Azerbaijan take points off Luxembourg. With that in mind I don't think finishing 4th will spell the end of Kenny and it's gonna depend on the result in the Luxembourg game.

    Think Dan McDonnell said this afternoon that there's 300 tickets remaining.

    25,000 showing up to watch Ireland v Qatar on a Tuesday night in October, with the team all ready out of contention for qualifying, is quite impressive. There is a lot of support for Kenny and it is not just media driven or some cultish behaviour. Irish grassroots fans want this to work, i think thats clear now.

    Or maybe the support is just relatively inelastic. People show up because that's what we do, with the fact that we won on Saturday and the relative novelty of attending things again also boosting demand: the attendance is still capped due to covid. I really don't think the crowd shows much.

    Weve had friendlies were there were barely 10,000 people in the Aviva. I remeber the crucial Ireland Georgia game in the Aviva for Euro 2016, i know the official attendance was higher, but there was no way the actual attendance broke 20,000 people. how many turned up for that ireland oman game? The team is at an all time low, results wise, but getting a big crowd for a crap friendly.

    The hardcore kennities, to be fair to them make the voices heard
    I would say the south stand will be rocking again

    They seem to pay for tickets to go and support the team anyway.

    Cullen is out injured now apparently. Hendrick keeps his place beside Knight in your team? I would be concerned he would go with Arter or Hourihane in there. And I think these guys need to be phased out.

    In terms of the front 3, I'm hoping to see McGrath and Robinson behind Parrott. Would gladly see Ogbene in there from the off.

    Kelleher
    Omobamidele Egan Collins
    Doherty Knight Hendrick Stevens
    McGrath Robinson
    Parrott

    Kenny always disappoints me with one selection so I do expect to see Hourihane or Arter midfield.

    I don't see Arter starting and he wouldn't be in the squad either if Browne and Molumby were available. Arter really seems to get selected when we're missing others in midfield. Only got brought in last month as Knight and Browne were originally out, and this month with Browne and Molumby. Other than that he's only been in two other squads, the training camp in the summer and Kennys first ever squad.

    Hourihane I do think might start because I feel now that Kenny might start Knight in the advanced role but have him coming back to make it a midfield three and pushing forward to support Robinson and probably Idah up front.

    Hopefully Jack Taylor stays injury free and gets a good run at Peterborough and Coventry too. We're badly stuck for midfield options with Cullen being the only decent option to start in that midfield two.

    Knight and McGrath are better being played in those advanced midfield roles but would like to see Knight used a bit deeper next year before the qualifiers. He's got the athleticism needed and think he would have offered more putting the Azerbaijan midfielders under pressure than Hendrick did were he available.

    I think it's a combination of factors but definitely covid and being able to just go to events again, but I think there's also an empathy and a warmth to the young players and supporting and getting behind them

    Soundings earlier today seem to be that there's going to be a limited number of changes. That makes me think Hendrick starts. I think the thinking is the team will be more like;
    Kelleher
    Doherty
    Egan
    Collins
    Duffy
    Stephens
    Hendrick
    Knight
    McGrath
    Idah
    Robinson

    Although I wouldn't be overly surprised to see Idah get a rest too. Knight could play the McGrath role with Hourihane presumably being most likely to slot in as a holding midfielder in that case.

    I realise that things happen during the international break that the manager has no control over, but it does seem that calling up Will Keane was a bit pointless
