hunt should have been on at least 10 mins earlier, mcgeady was obviously tiring. disappointing night, we need to get at least a draw in moscow. st ledger will be a big miss. think this ireland team is better equipped for getting results away from home, heres hoping.
Would agree on this last point. Team is better set up to play on the break, when they have to break a team down there is no creativity in midfiled. Hunt should definitely start.

Draw on Tuesday and wins from last 2 games should clinch 2nd. Don't think Slovakia will win all their games but given the lack of quality in a lot of positions it would hard to win a play off, maybe against the likes of Norway would be the best bet.

 Another rookie full back or is McShane fit?

Sadly I was right in my earlier prediction.

The Pipe band were awful, Ireland were awful, in fact, everything was awful.

Can we sell McGeady off back to Scotland or Russia. He has never cut it at this level and never will.

Not everything was awful ... the large number of female Slovakian fans were lovely

Team to play Russia, Shay Given, Stephen Kelly, Richard Dunne, Darren O'Dea, Stephen Ward, Damien Duff, Glenn Whelan, Keith Andrews, Aidan McGeady, Robbie Keane, Kevin Doyle.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Russia have been ropey enough since the match @ Lansdowne. But I'd tend to agree with LL, will be good going to get a draw, a win and 3 points would be unreal

Plus, cannot believe an international football match of this importance is allowed to be played on a plastic pitch. What next, playing with a half pumped ball?

'mon to feck Ireland!

Russia were as useless as ourselves last Friday, so there's a bit of hope to cling onto in that. This is turning out to be a pretty shite group.

glad the match is at 4pm. I feel like i have punished myself after i watch a match, i feel dirty.... its the same feeling i get after watching Fox news, reading O'Doherty or Myers. Just dont know why i put myself through it. First time in a while i'll be happy to be in work.

Most of the posters here aren't Billy!

I think I'll listen in on the wireless. Beats a crappy stream and I wont have to look at Robbie Keane's histrionics.
