Cast iron penalty, softly conceded by the defender who definitely clipped Robbie.
Usual moronic bull directed at Robbie from so called irish fans.
Lawrence, Doyle and Whelan were particularily atrocious last night but apart from McGeady and Long, the whole team from 1-11 were not at the races. I might have given the motm to the ball boy but even he was a bit slow.
Had to laugh though at Given berating the stretcher bearers to move faster and get the obviously injured played off, with more haste.
There was no contact.

There was no contact any of the times he went down. He's vying with Duff as the most annoying Irish diver. Tiresome shite to watch. I know this stuff is endemic in the value-free world of professional soccer, but it's still annoying seeing overpaid millionaires purporting to represent our country carrying on like this.

Usual rubbish from the Keane supporters, defending him to the last. Interesting to hear no chear of Keano Keano from the fans last night after he scored, all the real fans must have stayed away!

I agree.

Henry dives and he's a cheat

Keane dives and he's a hero.

You couldn't write the hypocrisy of it.

It shows where soccer is in Ireland when the only way we can score a goal against a decent side is using Wimbeldon tactics. Says everything.

When its 3 v 2 in central midfield, and neither of your 2 midfielders could trap a bag of cement, its always going to be an uphill struggle in the possession stakes.  Cannot understand Dunne getting MOTM given that Kerzakhov had such a good game and they could have scored another 2 or 3 goals.

Dunphy's post-match comments were harsh though - Gibson is an "awful footballer" and "completely brain-dead" - wil stuff to be saying about a young footballer, although I don't rate him much either.

Stick to Bogball guys, you do not know the game of Soccer. Not even Ronaldo goes down when about to make contact in the box. Clear clip on Keane's left heel, the defender did not make the slightest complaint when penalty was awarded, did not even say  "ah Ref".
In fact, the only complaints, are the usual self loathing Irish folk who occasionally condescend to watch an Irish international game.

Incompetence outside the ground and on the pitch :(

What's gone on outside the ground??
Totally outclassed is right. McGeady looks a threat, maybe, but it's hard to see us turning this around. They look like creating chances every time they cross the half way line.

What happened outside ground?
I was at the game,there was a bit of trouble behind the goals alright,a Russian fan had to be escorted out.
I think he was verbally abusing Irish fans around him,everyone clapped when he was removed.
I had 4 Russian guys sitting beside me,very nice fellas had a good laugh with them.
At least something made me laugh on what was a truly awful performance,Kilbane is finished and Green isn't good enough IMHO.
Thought the peno was a bit soft but the free that was given before the first Russian goal looked very soft also from where I was sitting.

People of a self flagellation nature who cannot look at an incident like this  objectively and come to a rational judgement of what happened and instead use their warped judgement of what happened as a stick to beat with . The rationality gets blinded by prejudice towards Keane, towards soccer, towards Ireland or any combination of the three.
Most times when Ireland get awarded a penalty it is regarded as down to luck by detractors. The last qualification campaign being also an example, Ireland were supposed to have had all the luck in order to finish 2nd, conveniently forgetting that Italy were fortunate to win in Montenegro, fortunate to get 2  incredible own goals in Georgia, a last gasp equaliser against us and a very fortunate last gasp winner against Cyprus.

Richard Dunne MOTM on RTE?

Really is that who got it?
Are they not allowed to give it to the away team or something?

Stick to Bogball guys, you do not know the game of Soccer.

I thought Shoccerball was Bogball coz its pure toilet.
Time to take a more chill-pill approach to life.
