Great to get the win,I'd rather see them winning playing poor than losing playing well.

I wouldn't be too concerned about Doyle missing as we have good options up front now with the likes of Long,Best,Cox and Walters.
Midfield is a problem, Whelan is awful imo as is McGeady. I'd have Coleman and Fahy in instead.
Good chance of qualifying now,it be just great to qualify.
Brilliant to see the stadium almost full and the place rocking.

2nd game at home not as big an advantage.  Anyone fancy France in a play off?

Lads we are an absolute shambles. Outplayed by 10 men. Experienced players panicking when we should have closed out the game in a canter.

Won't qualify. Poor side. 2 gifted goals. No attacking flair. Shots on goal are like hens teeth

Denmark beating Portugal 2-0 so we could have France and Portugal in the draw if we don't get to be a top seed.
France only need draw v Bosnia so hopefully they can get an equaliser which should make us a top seed.

Funny game, nice result.

Thought Cox was decent and Walters looked very useful when he came on. Duff put in a good shift. Delighted Dunne got his goal.

Doyle looked to be in one of his moods and deserved to be lined. McGeady was largely shite, but has had a good campaign and is still better than Hunt.

With Doyle and Keane out for the first playoff game, wouldn't mind seeing a front two of Walters and Long. Nice mix of strength and pace there. Cox could be a great addition if he could do two good things in a row a bit more often.

Looking forward to seeing Trap starting with either Keane Cox or Long Cox up front.

Not looking like being seeded. France Portugal turkey Belgium most likely above.

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  :)

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.

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