The Repubic of Ireland


Recommended Posts

Ten games now under their new manager without a single victory culminating yesterday in a defeat at home to Luxembourg.

The big question of the day is not Sturgeon or Salmond but Kenny or Bertie has Bertie Vogts been supplanted as the worst international manager in history by Stephen Kenny ?

That’s a comparison that is very unfair on Vogts given Kenny’s 0% win rate with Ireland and Berti’s 26% with Scotland (and he had previously won Euro 96 with Germany).

Hard to see Kenny lasting much longer, but it was maybe a bit of a surprise that he even got the job. Ireland had a string of big name managers then this guy whose only managerial success was with clubs in Ireland (after taking Dunfermline down to 2nd bottom in the Championship).

Luxembourg aren’t the mugs they used to be though, with at least a couple of players in credible leagues.
