We’re a shambles.
All good goals by all accounts as well. Great player. Hope one of your boys gives him a good kick. Think spuds without Erikson or Kane aren't nearly as effective
Took them brilliantly but all starting from Irish mistakes.
We haven’t s footballer amongst them. We know that. But, it’s been particularly depressing watching this lot under O’Neill who I think is devoid of any tactical spark.
Not sure who could get anything out of this lot to be fair to him.
Anyway 1-5 now. We’ve been completely shown up by Denmark. Could you imagine if by some miracle we got to Russia and played someone really good.
It’s probably all worked out for the best really.
I have never got the media fawning of O'Neill. Got lucky at Celtic with Larsson. Did ok at Leicester but he is another disciple of the brigade of avoid defeat first no matter how dire the football is.
We don’t have the players. We all realise that but O’Neill is a dinosaur. Half the time the team look like they don’t know what the plan is.
The only time they do know what the plan is, is when we’re looking for a ‘don’t let a goal in’ 0-0 or maybe steal a 1-0.
There is no other plan.
Every time we score early you see us shit ourselves. Because they don’t know how to control s game. It’s not in the plan.
We didn’t have a midfield first half, so O’Neill took off the best of them Moyler, and Arter(who was atrocious) and plugs the gap with McGeady and Holahan.
So we had an even more non existent midfield second half.
I think things are going to be very barren for Irish football for quite a while, because as City have shown at club level and has been shown tonight at international level,
this Neanderthal football is dead. It has been found out and teams that control the ball through technical ability in its ranks, will be more successful.
We just don’t produce these kinds of players and with the state of the FAI and grass roots football in this country I can’t see that changing any time soon.
