How does the table look as it stands?
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Luck of the Irish.  Mac should have had a penalty and maybe a 2nd.  Watching it on RTE2 which may be deferred coverage.

Come on Ireland.
I have more respect for a man
that says what he means and

Given: Even injured he is better than Hart
Kelly: Quiet
O'Dea: O'Dea oh dear.
O'Shea: Poor
Kilbane: Great servant, crap left back.
Hunt: Usual mix of skill effort and psychosis. Their left back is playing well though.
Whelan: Might as well be Ronnie.
Andrews: Took a bang on the head but it didn't work.
McGeady: Usual mix of pointless dribbles.
Cox: Should have had a goal and got a yellow card. Sums it up.
Keane: Still knows how to score thankfully.

Trapp: A genius to get us remotely competitive.

If Microdisney were any use they'd be at least level. Ireland switched off in second half.

Shane Long has become a really useful player.

I thought we look pretty untested in the 2nd half

Fair play to Robbie Keane,he has his critics and begrudgers but its hard to slate a man who has scored 51 International goals.
Credit where credit is due.

A defeat would have been the icing on the cake for you pair

Make shift central defence, no Dunne, Doyle or Duff. A 2 nil away from home..massive result. Were always gonna drop deep with 2 up in the 2nd half. Not the greatest bunch of players, but players with big hearts which is slowly becoming a rare comodity in the lesser payed Int soccer

Just a wee note... re second place


Ranking of second-placed teams

Because some groups contain six teams and some five, matches against the sixth-placed team in each group are not included in this ranking. As a result, eight matches played by each team will count for the purposes of the second-placed table

Tiebreakers

The following criteria are applied to determine the rankings.

Higher number of points obtained in these matches
Superior goal difference from these matches
Higher number of goals scored in these matches
Higher number of away goals scored in these matches
Position in the UEFA national team coefficient ranking system
Fair play ranking in these matches
Drawing of lots

This is a football competition not a big heart competition. We are not very good at football theses days sadly.

We are crap but we are less crap than Macedonia.

That was a superb win tonight. Anyone pondering quality at this moment should be hanged for treason. Well done Ireland, and special mention for the greatest attacking player this country has ever produced. I doubt anyone on this forum will live long enough to see his goalscoring record eclipsed.
