The time is gone now for us to really have a go as such because we have the worst two games left but we should always be looking to get men forward and pass the ball around with intent against Georgia.
Wrong players selected so and McCarthy wrong manager for that but I agree with you when you see small East European countries keep ball👍

Denmark legend Peter Schmeichel has written off Ireland’s Euro qualification prospects.

“Switzerland will win against Ireland,” said the Great Dane.

“I have seen Ireland play and they are so bad. Switzerland can take a lot of positives from their performance in Copenhagen.

“They have some really talented players. If they play like that against Ireland, the win will come.

“Kasper had a great game on Saturday but overall the Denmark team didn’t. Football can be difficult to understand sometimes.”

Ireland are crap but the Danes and to a lesser extent the Swiss are annoying cunts. Schmeichel seems like a complete bollocks and it would be great if Ireland knocked them out playing shite football.

I don't think we have to worry about that.

Looking at the playoff scenario, it's quite possible, bordering (pun not intented) on probable, that Ireland will end up with NI and Scotland in the same section, and quite possibly meet the North in the semi.

Ireland, NI and Scotland were ranked 23, 24 & 25 respectively in Nations League, and look like having to go the playoff route, bar Ireland puling something out of their arses in the last couple of games.

Keane was right, a gowl

This is it. We are calling them shit ourselves so we can’t give out when someone else does it!

That said, we are woeful to watch but we are a bit like Burnley - can be hard to beat sometimes so we are shit to watch but not totally shit. I can’t see us getting anything tonight either. We don’t have enough up top to take the heat off the defence for a while. They’ll break us down eventually.

He is being paid 1.2 million a year to serve up this shite. Nowhere near the required standard. That bullshit artist wouldn't get half that off a championship club, which is his level.

Get Maguire and Connolly on Tuesday night.

Glenn Whelan still starting? Ffs.
Yeah, I thought Whelan retired about 2 years ago.

Connelly had a big chance against Georgia near the end but pulled it wide - if he had scored then most everyone would have forgotten about the performance.

Tbh, I don't really care about entertaining football, it is about results at this level.

I know we are but it's a bit rich when his crowd and the Swiss couldnt put us away in the previous games.
