ref doing us no favours, also why wait for 6 mins to go to bring on hunt

Can't believe any manager would look at that shite for 90 minutes and only make 2 subs... And wait 64 minutes before making a change, at least a Junior B GAA manager would have taken off a corner forward....

That was pure dung. Why wait so long to bring Hunt on?

We should have won with those two great chances for Keane and Dunne in the last ten minutes. We are up chit creek without a paddle or Sean St Ledger going to Moscow.

Cox had a good chance too.

hunt should have been on at least 10 mins earlier, mcgeady was obviously tiring. disappointing night, we need to get at least a draw in moscow. st ledger will be a big miss. think this ireland team is better equipped for getting results away from home, heres hoping.

As it stands
Russia pts 16
Republic of Ireland pts 14
Slovakia pts 14

Remaining games
Slovakia: Armenia,Russia at home & Macedonia away
Russia: Andorra,ROI at home & Slovakia away
ROI: Armenia at home & Andorra,Russia away

The key to success is to be consistently competitive -- if you bang on the door often it will open

Don't know that much about the form of those teams but Slovakia look to have the tougher run-in. So why was this being billed as a "must win".

In terms of qualifying automatically it probably was a must win tonight.
Playoffs as good as we can hope for now I reckon unless a miracle happens in Moscow

Yeah, top spot is out of the question without winning in Russia, which is extremely unlikely given Ireland's away form in the last... well, for as long as I can remember. Need a draw in Russia for second spot too, which wouldn't have been necessary with a win tonight. Bad result, although the real damage was probably done in Slovakia when we had them on the rack and couldn't put them away.

We lost against Russia at home. So we should lose the away game as well. We really needed a win tonight to ensure a playoff and the chance of topping the group. We are in trouble now.

Sadly I was right in my earlier prediction.

The Pipe band were awful, Ireland were awful, in fact, everything was awful.

Can we sell McGeady off back to Scotland or Russia. He has never cut it at this level and never will.

As bad as the performance was, the Irish supporters showed themselves as nothing but a gang of gobshites to boo the team.
