He's got a point. Look how Wales are reaping the rewards of sticking by Warren Gatland. Saying that I think Gatland is completely involved with Welsh Rugby, including developing players, cooridinating with the regions etc. So they knew he was improving things for the long term and the results are really showing now. I ahve no idea if Kidney is doing anything like all that work in Ireland.

I'm sick of Kidney and his parochialism. We need a new foreign coach as it's impossible for an Irish coach to be impartial these with the provincial rivalries.
Which parochialism is this?
The one that started more Leinster players than the players from his home province
Can anyone here name different players that should have been involved?
If we can find a coach that can magic up players I'm all for him.

For TOL - Literally anybody but him who is irish qualified and has pro rugby experience. He is utterly dreadful

For Darcy - Sexton at 12 is madness, utter madness. he wouldn't even be an ML standard IC. He may be a mediocre OH at international level but that puts him a notch above ROG as an outhalf on current form. There are a number of 12's who could not do any worse than how these guys have done there recently - paddy, mcfadden.

For ROG - He is past his sell by date and is of no use to ireland anymore, that much is completely obvious and should have be shown the door after the world cup. But he got a contract till 2013 :lol: :blush:

kidney is a conservative manager at a time when we need to be bringing new players through
no coaching genius.

Ireland will stagnate unless we get someone like schmidt in.

bringing Thomas o'leary in and rog in was the epitomy of stagnant backward thinking defeatism.

From his two breaks today,He had no support for the first one and had English defenders tracking for the second one.

TOL : Why weren't Boss and Marshall on standby ? TOL is not good enough for AIL at this stage.
ROG _ Is now a hasbeen who kicked all our possession away badly when he came on. I'd honestly take Madigan or even Keatley over him.

Sexton is not a centre, McFadden is.

Kidney is a poor coach who got lucky with Munster and has been trying to replicate that ever since.

I know it's an unfair comparison but I could almost visualise BOD checking and passing for the first and offloading for the second.

Anyway earls is way down the list and was not at fault for today.

TOL I felt really sorry for.
It was awful seeing him play so badly.

Our propping issue is of unbelievable proportions now.

was TOL brought on for an injury? that's the only thing that would excuse that substitution. the man should never have even been on the bench. bringing O'Gara on and putting Sexton at 12 is also a stupid move as many have pointed out. why have McFadden if the only position he's covering is wing.

Same situation as with Paddy. Apparently he was covering for 10 and fullback in previous years. But now that we needed a 12 and back-up in the centres, he was nowhere near the squad. I disagree with Kidney on his conservatism, but I can understand what he's doing. With the centres, halfbacks and the substitutions I really have no idea why he makes the decisions he makes.

I really think he should go. There seems to be zero vision in his management. At a time where every other team in the 6 nations has managed to bring young players into their team with positive effect we seem to be going backward in this regard. You can make the argument that the players aren't coming through, but I don't believe that. Much too much emphasis has been put on experience, which as was shown today is a much over rated commodity if those experienced players continually make bad decisions. I'd much rather have the likes of POM giving away a naive penalty through lack of experience than DOC through being f**king stupid. One player will learn in this scenario, the other won't. I,d much rather have mcFadden make mistakes at 12 that he may learn from, than Darcy through declining ability and form.

Take Cuthbert at Wales. Got caught out in his first start defensively. He is now probably a better player for it. The Welsh management were willing to risk rookie errors for the betterment of their young talent. Why not take the same risk with a Zebo, MCFadden, Marshall, Toner, etc etc.

As today showed, we have little to lose and much to gain.

Just for accuracy, I made an almost identical post to the above before the 6n training squads were announced. This 6N was a perfect opportunity to bring through a new generation. We had little pressure and expectation on us. If anything we know less about our squad of players now than we did at the start. Now THAT is poor management.

Just back after a decent feed in The Wild Goose Grill, and some thought and discussion with my son.

In the first half our kicking game was very good and at least got us field position. So 5 minutes into the second half what does Kiddenme do ? He replaces the half backs, and the new pair proceed to put Ireland under extreme pressure through absolutely crap kicking - straight outs, dinks straight to the English midfield etc.

This was a tactical decision straight down to Kidney, and it cost Ireland the match.

He took one player off, and changed the position of another, both of whom were playing well; and replaced them with two from his old Munster comfort blanket, that proceeded through their decisions and execution, to give the game to England.

For that alone Kiddinme deserves to be sacked/

Thinking about it, since the start of last years 6N, Kidney has probably had this cohort of players longer than their provinces. Yet we have 3 provinces in the quarters of the HEC, and likely two in the semis; yet when they get all that Ireland training they turn to shit.

People excused Kidneys crap back play saying that he was a forward oriented coach.

Well, after today, the Emperor has no clothes at all, at all.

Don't agree with putting Heaslip in that list. He's having a dip in form for Ireland, but it's not like he's 84 with a bad cough, there's plenty of time for him to sort himself out. Drop him by all means, but just to apply the Bishop Brennan sized kick up the hole, use that as an incentive for him to improve.

He played better than Sexton did at centre though.

WTF is McFadden doing in the squad, if you're not going to use him at centre ?
