I read elsewhere that since Ireland beat Austria in November, 2016, they've won two competitive games out of 11. Gibraltar have won two in the past week.

Hardly relevant as they were playing Lichtenstein and Armenia. We were playing two decent teams. No need to sensationalise it any more than it already is.

Only the most committed will traipse to the Aviva from now on.

Else they will just hand out more free tickets to the schools creating a financial problem.

Either way the FAI are in a serious pile of shit............but Delaney will put fingers in his ears going LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA

Currently they can only play with what they have and itís shit..

What plans have the FAI put in place for youth set up and development? They should save the money wasted on the senior team and plough it into a workable achievable system that brings about improvement.

One of their plans is summer soccer, the other is futsol which is 5 a sides with no refs to promote "street soccer"

Once you have kids the alcohol intake goes way down, or at least it should. Might have an odd bottle of beer on Friday night watching the tv and that's it really. Couldn't be arsed deal with the hangovers anymore.

Just so shit on so many levels. How many shots straight down the keepers throat. Hendrick mclean couldnt f**king put a ball in if there lives depended on it. Arter and mclean giving away needless fouls all day long. Couldnt score if they were playing all night. Worst irish team in 50 yrs. O'Neill needs to f**k off

They showed they can play a bit when chasing the game but why not from the start? It's the manager. Shambles what's going on

Played better but did they actually create anything? Did hennessy have to actually do anything? Too many mistakes and bad choices when it mattered. Time for a massive clearout of management and players

2/3 chances. Hogan header, McClean volley and couple of goal mouth scrambles

Yes a full back asked to play midfield. Why is it that we can start passing and attacking as soon as we go behind. It's a mentality in players set by the manager.

Every youngfella who plays the game is told to play to the whistle. Don't stop playing until you hear it. The only thing wrong with what Hendrick did was he wasted a glorious chance.

That's only true if he didn't realize what was taking place if he did it's a cnuts trick.

Better tonight but still some awful crap being played against an equally poor team

I do t know, it was woeful. Denmark ball retention is miles ahead of ours, they surely had 70% possession in 2nd half. Even when we pass it we end up going back to the keeper. Robinson added a bit of attacking when he came on. The players aren't there but at the same time they are not being set up to even try and play

Who sets the prices for these matches? Lots of empty seats tonight. Was going to take the wee fella down for the wales game on tuesday but then I seen it was 70 euro for adult ticket and 20 for an u16 in the lower level and I quickly changed my mind. Ireland are hard to watch at the best of times without being ripped off for the privilege.
We're always quick to bash the gaa but the 5euro ticket for u16s in croke park even up to and including all ireland semis is brilliant value compared to other sports.

In fairness you'd want more money than sense to pay anything to watch this rubbish. No attempt to pass the ball out, no flair, no one touch. And Denmark only slightly better.

GAA Discussion / Re: Championship Draw 2019

You know the draw is f**ked when you hear keyboard warriors saying it could be worse. None of you will have to train all through the winter for a game in May.
Leitrim have lost 7 in a row to Roscommon but have beaten Sligo.  What exactly do you idiots think his reaction should be to Leitrim drawing Roscommon not Sligo???

Posters criticise the dubs for only filling fixtures in Leinster (which they are currently) when it has been dominated by Dublin and then have the cheek/balls to insult Emlyn Milligan for calling a spade a spade.

I'll tell you what his reaction should be tough guy...

v Roscommon. That's a tough draw for us. We have to learn from the past and improve and aim to be very competitive against them and see where that brings us. First we have a league campaign and we need to try and get out of Div 4.

You clearly have no experience of a dressing room if you think talk like that has any place in it.

Give over slating Mulligan for telling the truth. You are the same men that slag off Dublin players for saying they are in for a tough first game. Anything to complain. Mulligan give an honest interview and you are at him. Moron

If I was Terry Hyland, Id be wondering is a lad like him worth the hassle in the dressing room. If the going gets tough you know he will go hiding. Example, roscommon are similar to Kildare. Leitrim are similar to Carlow. Carlow beat Kildare last year.
Its not impossible for Leitrim to get organised, motivated and be competitive with Roscommon. With a bit of luck who knows. But its only possible if you have belief and buy in from your players.

If you watched the draw you will know the only team Leitrim have beat in the connaght championship (excluding London & New York) since Mulligan joined the panel is Sligo. They have been well beaten by Roscommon in recent years. It's also a div 1/2 side against a div 4 side. It's easy for you to slag off the man, but you're not the one who has to put in all the training for what is going to be a pointless task. The Clare manager made the same point point about having to play Kerry every year.

The super 8s are a good idea, but they should be at the start of the championship, not the end, an open draw and the provincial championship structure should be scrapped at this stage. Unfortunately you have all the committee men in their provincial roles who will do everything in the power to fight this as they don't want to give up their power/positions as they believe that it worked 50/60 years ago so it should be perfectly fine today

I did watch and I am well aware of Leitrim and their limitations, i was born a stone throw from the county. Roscommon were in Div 3 a couple of years ago, they are not Kerry. A complacent Roscommon team almost lost to New York. A complacent Roscommon team are worth targeting by Leitrim. What is Mulligans point, he wants to draw Sligo every year as they are the only team they can beat? Whats the point in even playing the game if you think like that?
Imagine going into a dressing room full of players beaten as soon as the draw was made. At the very least he should have kept that negative opinion to himself as that negativity can infect other players.
