A result is a result.  Its typical Ireland though.  We go to places like Russia, Italy, France etc and come away with a lot more than anyone ever expects us to yet we struggle to outplay less skilled teams such as Armenia and Andorra.

We got two lucky goals but a result is a result and again we find ourselves in the playoffs. I can't wait for the draw.

Same as that really looking forward to it now.

Some lads would rather spend their time putting Irish soccer down all the time than getting behind them and support them.

Bullshit - you can support the team and still criticise them. I hope we qualify but that doesn't take away from the fact that we were blessed tonight

Now I know this is the best place to come on to criticize and voice opinions but can a few of us not just be happy that we'v made it to the play offs and possibly the finals next summer.

Come on lads. We can live and dream  :)

Jesus lads.... reality check

At the start of the campaign - you would have snapped up a play off place

We were lucky with the goalkeeper been sent off - about time we had a bit of fortune

I'm sure other countries would swap our position in a heart beat

Results matter and u have to hand it to Trapp - he's getting them

Would you rather play more attractive football and get beat 4-3

That two's campaigns under Trapp - two tough groups and play offs in both achieved

In that campaign - played 10 - won 6 - drawn 3 and lost 1
 
No matter who we get in the play offs - We'll be the under-dogs

Phewww! We never make it easy for ourselves. Hopefully the draw is kind

The sky generation is out in force tonight. This team, a very limited team with few better than average players have busted their holes and got a playoff spot which I'm sure we'd all have taken at the start of the campaign. This isn't some billionaire's English premiership play thing were players can be bought and given ludicrous wages to give their Irish fans instant gratification. This is your bastarding country, through thick and often painful thin, get behind them ffs, and not just during the good times. A lot of folk in here spreading their hate are worse the English and the Irish tabloid papers that they constantly give out about

Looking forward to the draw

From Main Street's link a few pages back and the scores at present it looks like we'll still be seeded.

Looks like Croatia and Portugal will definitely be seeded. France will also be seeded if their score remains the same. We'll come in next, with Serbia not counting as they're currently losing in Slovenia. Montenegro, Turkey, Estonia and Czech Republic would go unseeded.

Didn't realise how bad he had gotten.
This was the first home qualifying game I couldn't attend and had to make do with watching on RTE.
Dunphy is an arsehole.

Spreading anger -get real will you. When will people realise that you can support your team and hope they qualify and still criticize their performance.

Jaysus that was desperate stuff to watch... we can't play football lads and that's a big problem in a football game...

Doyle was silly and Trap was even more silly to not take him off instead of Cox moments before... But he must be so frustrated playing in that team with that sort of a game plan i.e. the Garryowen and play for territory rather than possession  >:(

Whoever we get we're surely gonna be massive underdogs that said it's great to be the play offs and be so close to a major tournament...

By the way I'll be roaring at the TV hoping like hell we win both playoff games - One can criticise your team and still  be a supporter...
