The result is all that counts in a game like this. We need to beat them at home now to take advantage.

Anybody think Liam Brady is a waffler, who's just there because he's always been there?

Brady is anything but a waffler, he summed up the performance tonight succinctly as per his usual.
The result was earned.

One thing I liked was when Ireland equalised they pushed for a winner.

I know we were a bit ropey defensively last night but it's still early days for Mccarthy.  I'm encouraged by the performances.  Very difficult to get any kind of result away from home in European football these days.
Hopefully we can unearth one or two more in the coming months

The thing is and I don't think the pundits understsnd it is that Ireland have average players and that this is their level. A draw was a great result last night but we're not going to beat teams like Denmark by 3-0, away from home.

Leading tonight thanks to a OG and 2 shots on target in 60 minutes at home against the might of Gibraltar.

As I stated earlier, a very average side, whoever the manager is.

The players just arn't up to a quality standard.

That was a desperate performance from Ireland. How we can afford to have Doherty our best player on the bench I don't know.

The bus broke down. Maybe that explains why Ireland were shite. Or maybe not.

Took the child to this last night.  I hope it hasn't put him off.  Desperately poor stuff at times.  Crying out for a play maker and a decent goalscorer. Robinson was doing rightly and was hooked off for some reason.

I think having seen a bit of the women's world cup so far, some of it has shown more quality than the Gibraltar match the other night.

Certainly better looking footballers
