    Appointed head coach at Macclesfield: https://www.mtfc.co.uk/news/2020/jan...ew-head-coach/
    Doesn't look like they have a manager, so I guess he's manager in all but name?

    Lost the first game in charge 2-1 away to a Colchester side managed by John Mcgreal. Probably the most 1990s thing you'll read today. .

    Remember listening to a podcast with him and (I think) Kevin Kilbane where he said he'd no interest in the Irish national team. Wouldn't watch them in a big match even. Came across as a bit bitter. Think he felt he deserved more from McCarhty and he was scapegoat a bit after him and Babb were sent home before the Holland game.
    He failed to mention he got back in the team and was offered a place in the 2002 world cup squad but pulled out due to injury.
    Babb made his way back into the team as well.
    Folding my way into the big money!!!

    Kennedy had a bad attitude as a player . I wonder how that works when such a player goes into management .

    He persisted with playing and made a name for himself at city and wolves in their recovery. I never heard he had an especially bad attitude as a pro .. at the time dancing drunk on cars in Harcourt st was par for the course (have you ever heard Graham stacks stories...?). Slightly old fashioned maybe at that point but he was out of millwall, exposed to ruddock at Liverpool.. what do you expect like... his application in the latter half of his career suggests he got what he could out of it. I think he just wasnt as good as duff or as effective as kilbane. Killer player a lot of games at the top level.. easy to forget...
    Kennedy could be an excellent lower league coach

    There was a massive buzz around Kennedy when he first come onto the scene. Remember taking a day off school to watch him play a U21 international against England in Dalymount. :-) And remember us losing badly out in Vienna but Kennedy having the beating of his man and putting in dangerous balls. Never really got his career going from its early start.

    I remember an Irish Times journalist, who I shall not name( out of respect for those hurt by his actions) relating a tale of an Irish player setting fire to a handful of the local currency in an ex-Communist country in front of a bunch of locals, for the craic (am absolutely disgraceful act).....anyone remember the story and know who it was, allegedly, or whatever?

    Yes, I'm familiar with it. I've since heard it was a few different players, who did it in a few different countries, so I'm not sure of its validity

    6 months? I'd say they should never have represented the country again. An appalling thing to do.

    Tets: I would guess from that that it happened at least once so.

    Not saying it was Kennedy, btw, just popped into my head when someone mentioned the Starksy & Hutch bonnet slide on Harcourt Street.

    As good a time as any to remind ourselves of his cracker against Yugoslavia in 1999.
    One of my favourite goals of all-time.



    Probably in my top-3 matches of all-time. It was quality.

    All 3 goals here:
