    Was born in Nigeria but grew up in Cork and played for Cork City and Limerick before moving over to England. He is at Rotherham now. He certainly has pace but is not a real goal scorer so he does not solve that issue for us up front.

    That 13yr old girl who ran on the pitch has been fined €3000 for doing so.
    Prosecutor probably trying to get her to sell the Ronaldo shirt to pay for it.
    Petty minded scum.

    Not so long ago it seemed that Kelleher would basically have the Ireland jersey for a decade or so.

    At this rate he’ll only be playing frendlies unless that Bazunu gets an injury… boy looks unreal.

    Ok..I'm 100% biased. I'm not a Kenny fan. He comes in and blows McCarthy's play off chance, and then blows the world cup qualifiers, and now he's going to get a contract extension, while playing us in orange...Meh.

    The boys are looking very promising going forward, I back Kenny. The way the media go on about he’s been here 18 month when really he only gets 2 weeks every 3 months with these lads to figure out what he can work with.

    He needed time to sort them out. I’d give him a good few years yet & if we don’t qualify for Euro 2024 or World Cup 2026 then get rid. International Football is a lot different to the domestic game and I think people forget that sometimes.

    Considering how bad we are overall right now from a squad talent standpoint the quality and strength in depth we have at goalkeeper is amazing. Remember Bazunu is still only 19. Kelleher is only 22 while Mark Travers at Bournemouth has been having a very good season and is only 22 as well.

    Considering the shambles he inherited and the fact that the current Ireland squad is the worst from a talent standpoint since the mid 70's he was never likely to come right in and turn things around for us. Plus I am very much of the opinion that we need some patience as he also tries to bring Ireland into the 21st century when it comes to football instead of just defending for our lives and hoping for a free kick or corner to score. I am under no illusions as to where we can go as a football nation but I also see no reason why we cannot in time produce a decent team that we can be proud of that actually plays football and is enjoyable to watch. Even when we won big games in the past watching Ireland play was a chore. Kenny may or may not be the man to get us back to where we are at least making playoffs and or qualifying for finals but he IMHO deserves another campaign based on what I have seen so far.
