Hopefully Wales win tomorrow night and take them out of the playoff equation.

At least they won’t have to score to get through the playoffs, draw and penalties will do

That was a pretty handy group to get out off, I blame O’Neil and Roy

Wouldn't call it handy. Denmark ranked 14, Swiss 20, and we are 42,  on current standings. Don't think we'll come out of our playoff group, however. In that respect, it will be pretty embarrassing not to qualify when we are hosting and 24 teams from Europe qualify.

Kenny will be a lot more attack minded.

Ireland will likely be playing Slovakia away in one off play off, if Wales win tomorrow. Then they could be potentially playing the North in the final. Bosnia the other team

Potentially in the league B final. However if Wales don't beat Hungary then NI could be in league A. If Wales to the business then I think it looks like Bosnia v NI and Slovakia v Ireland in league B semis.

Yes, but McCarthy has players like Brady, Byrne, Robinson and Cullen who are much more dynamic. He goes with solid cloggers. I can see why,  but there is a plan b in that squad

Brady was shite the other night and not plsying near standard of lads out there tinight. Byrne plays agsinst amateurs every other week. Cullen never played a competitive international. Robinson gets his game. I dunno what you see on the bench thst will make many improvements to how well Ireland played today. Best performance in years.

Yeah, them two chancers stayed a campaign too long we were an embarrassing mess at the end of their tenure. Left Mick with a lot of psychological work to do!

Ireland have a couple of lads now that can score if they get a chance, problem I'd midfield, lack of creativity and lack of attacking commitment,  always worried about losing the ball and being caught. The strikers arent main issue in my opinion.

They are still not good enough, the players that is. Mick’s  had a chance to put his own stamp on the team. He did just that

We all know that the players are limited and that players like Hendrick, Brady and Coleman are sadly only a shadow of the players they were in 2016.

Hard to believe Mick was only appointed on 25 November 2018. Less than a year ago.
