Another big win for the vikings against the Rams tonight. 24-7 against one of the highest scoring teams in the NFL. The Lions scraped a win tonight to stay in touch. The division outcome could be as good as decided next week when the vikings play the lions in Detroit.

I donít think any other manager would have got the team as far as OíNeil has took them.

Michael O'Neill? We have until next football season to get a new manager if  Martin O'Neill declines to stay on.

Qualification hinged on late disallowed goal v Austria.

The loss of Seamus Coleman was also a key turning point in the campaign.

The thing I find inexplicable about tonights performance is the way Ireland went from a team that was difficult to beat to a team that paniced after going behind conceding the first goal. All we had to do was stay playing in the hard to beat style that got us results in Cardiff and Copenhagen. I think if Ward had kicked the ball away downfield or into the stand, we wouldn't have conceded the second goal and may well have won the tie. That didn't happen and we conceded the second. O'Neill exacerbated the problem at half time by taking off our two defensive midfielders giving Erikson the freedom of the park in the second half.

It ended 5-1 but it could have been different.

It's all Geldof's fault.

That is just silly now. It is Bonos fault.

O'Neill hasn't signed his new contract yet and after tonights display maybe he shouldn't.

McGeady is over the hill. Where is Long?

Meyler and Arter off. Holahan and McGeady on. It is a gamble taking off our two central midfielders imho.

More of the conservative approach from o neil. Meyler in for O Dowda. I expect Ireland to play like they did in the first leg, hoping to hit the Danes on the counter attack.

That is another nil all draw in the world cup qualifiers. I fancy tomorrow nights game will go the same way.

Italy won't be missed. Who did they have on their team? It is not like 94 when they had baggio and Zola in their squad. This time around all the hype is about Buffon retiring, not on the great players who will miss the world cup.

Italy who Ireland wanted to avoid the most could be knocked out by Sweden tonight.

No score at half time. If the Swedes score one Italy will need three in the second half.

Another big win for the vikings today on the road in Washington. Keenum had a big game at quarterback with 4 touchdowns and 300 yards passing. It keeps them ahead of the chasing packers and lions by 2 games.

Useless. Please put them out of our misery ontuesaday. A hotch pot of championship and lower Premiership players. Is someone actually paying Keane?

What are you complaining about? What would Holland or even Italy give to be in our position right now? We can seal the deal on Tuesday.

That jersey is a disgrace, I doubt it will sell much anyway.

The game is going well, 14-0 to Ireland.

The tie is not over yet. A 2-1win for the north in the away leg will be enough.

More importantly I didn't see the game as it was on sky.  Why didn't the BBC or UTV have the game on live?
