Here sure we are all rugby mad anyway so who gives a f**k until Scotland beat us in the 6 nations and then we will all be mad golfers until Rory shanks his way round the majors too busy thinking about money, ulster rugby, Carl frampton or whatever else that seems to distract him. After that im just hoping the hockey or cricket crowd get their shit together lol

I don't like Martin O'Neill but Tony O'Donoughe was being an arsehole there.
He is employed by R.T.E. Being an arsehole is a requirement there

Tony did absolutely nothing wrong.

MON needs to have a bit of a thicker skin than that for a fûcking sexagenarian, that weren’t exactly Nuremberg Trials stuff so I can only imagine what he’d do if a reporter wasn’t trying to maintain a relationship with I’m and really dig into the holes in his logic.

Meanwhile Keano is checking his online bank account to see if the F.A.I. Cheque has come through

Then he'll make a pot of tea.

“Would you call it a humiliation.....?”  Pathetic reporting.    Would’ve loved MON to say “f**k off you w**k-bag, is that the best question you can come up with?”

It was a humiliation.

When you presided over shîte like that you best own it when you’re called on it and not make excuses. If I went into work with that attitude when questioned about something that went wrong I and anyone else wouldn’t last very long.

MON acted like a child in that interview. Grow the fûck up, lad. And I’m someone who accepts the general style of football we play.

it was a humiliation, caused by his tactics and team selection. surely martin o'neill needs to answer for that, he gets well enough paid to stand and front up any awkward questions.

Still crap OTT questions. Most fans downbeat but Tony wants to go for it because of the whole persona Gift Grub hype around the interviews. No sense of professionalism. Actually thought MON fought his corner well.

I think the RTE panel, overall, called it correctly.

Very poor individual performances, but at half time we're 1-2 down. We have 45 minutes to score two goals and concede none.

Would anybody on the board have put out a midfield of Brady & Hendrick sitting deep, McClean and Hoolahan occupying the same position centrally and McGeady on the wing? I'm genuinely wondering. Maybe I didn't see it properly and the positions were different, but they were the players playing across our midfield.

We might have lost by four goals regardless. But does anyone think that that was the way to go about winning the game?

Was it not working up until they scored 2 in 3 mins? Sloppy defending but of course that was MON’s fault!

Seems most people would prefer a gun ho swashbuckling style of football!! Attack attack exciting! Well that’s what happens when a limited team tries to win games! They get dicked, Martin is working with limited players, it’s simple make yourself difficult to beat and score from a set piece or catch a team on the break..

Denmark manager Hareide

"I was surprised really because I think they played in a diamond - the midfield - with two forwards, and our centre-halves can handle two forwards, but that gave a lot of space in centre midfield for Eriksen."

"Just to say, 'Thank you very much for giving us space', because they locked us down in Parken very well and Eriksen was very much out of the game  while today with the space given to him he was fantastic

Every man woman and dog up and down the country knew it was a humiliation so they didn’t need wankbag Tony “look at me” asking the most stupid f**king question in sporting history.   Arsehole of the highest order.    O’Neill showed dignity and answered it well.  Being from Roscommon I’m sure you at least know you can do without smarthole  fuckwits rubbing your nose in it after a hammering?

It's very difficult to discuss or debate with you. Who asked for anything swashbuckling? This thread is full of comments like this. Barcelona get mentioned. Who ever said we should play like Barcelona?

To answer your question, if it is a serious question, it was never working; we were opened up before the goal. What exactly "it" was is what I was querying. What system were they sent out to play in the second half? Was Brady playing a defensive midfield role? If so, do you, or anyone, think that was a good move? Where was McClean supposed to be playing?

The irony is that I think he was too swashbuckling, as you put it, so did Hamann, Brady and Dunphy. Changes were needed for sure. But to empty the position that the opposition's danger man occupies makes no sense to me.

So instead of typing a general reply such as the one you did, why don't you address the questions I've asked? Or maybe you actually do believe that it's a case of "make yourself difficult to beat and score from a set piece or catch a team on the break.."?

The skeleton sounds more exciting than rugby. Although, an afternoon watching raindrops run down a window sounds more exciting than rugby.
