So if we finish level on points it's decided on head 2 head games?

Mad how people see games differently. Granted I tend to get distracted when watching soccer but of what I did see, Duff was shite.

"That's below the belt"

What about Chippy having a go at Bill over the plight of the working man .... brilliant.

If it did cost 60 yo yos to go to that game tonight no wonder the stadium was half empty.

Typical Ireland. If they'd gone 5-0 up in the first half they'd still be hanging on by the skin of their teeth come injury time. The talent vacuum that is midfield makes it all too predictable, everything is either hit long or down the wings. Nothing can be played through the middle. That football is a recipe for yet another glorious near miss in terms of qualification.

The state of Brady throwing a hissy fit after being asked a reasonable enough question. RTE lads are a joke gone way past it's sell by date, unwatchable these days.

Shane Long was motm for me, he took the game by the scruff of the neck in the 2nd half.McGeady impressed more than Duff, and finally looks as if he might he adding patience to his game.

Dunne was good, Foley grew in confidence and Westwood looked composed. Keane and Duff led by example, working their bollocks off.

RTE's panel might need a new member soon. I don't mean to sound nasty or doomsdayist, but Giles couldn't look more unhealthy if he tried. He's a heart attack waiting to happen.

Sure its entertaining!

Am I alone in thinking we played some pretty decent stuff at times? Didn't think the performance was too bad at all. I expected us to retreat in our own penalty area in the last 15 minutes but was pleasantly surprised that we actually played our way out of trouble.

I think these eastern Europeans are saving their best for the games against mother russia. We could be able to take advantage.

I have admiration for your optimism but I thought that was complete pish. I was watching it with a fella who was kicking every ball for ROI and when I told him that Macedonia would have won only their 'keeper was a wooden one, he went of on one saying that it was a good Irish performance.

I don't know, I thought it was a horrible. Dunne - Done? Got tore a new one for the goal and later on he got booked after getting a skinning.

Whelan was shocking tonight. Fahey needs to start with McCarthy in the middle.

Don't know if Dunne wasn't fit but was poor tonight.

3 points in Macedonia would leave Republic in good position. Seem to play better away from home.

Play like that against Russia and they will hammer us. Any more news on Doyles injury?Could be devastating for Wolves in their relegation fight
