Shamrock Rovers were on the end of a humbling 5-2 defeat at home to Stephen Kenny's Dundalk this evening. Building on the frustrations already surrounding an unremarkable season for the club, Kenny's counterpart Stephen Bradley took the brunt of the home fans' anguish.
Having gone 1-0 ahead after only four minutes through a Daniel Carr goal, some poor defensive positioning, and worse goalkeeping, left Rovers and Bradley with little or not hope.
With only two wins in fifteen games, the Shamrock Rovers fans turned to booing their manager.
Rovers fans are chanting 'we want Bradley out'. I haven't heard that before. But with just two wins in 15 games, it will hardly come as a surprise.

Some with the foresight to imagine that tonight's game would go against Bradley's men managed to make their feelings similarly known.
At a time when Rovers' Graham Burke is making great strides on the international scene, fans of the club are growing increasingly frustrated as Bradley's men slip further and further away from the upper-end of the table.
2 wins in 15 games . How does Stephen Bradley still have a job ?

Personally I think Stephen Bradley is currently out of his depth and if it were me making the decision I'd remove him from his position.

With a home tie against bottom-of-the-league Bray Wanderers coming next for Stephen Bradley, anything but a win may well signal the end of his spell in charge of the club.
