    Nations League Draw.. (3/3/20)

    Oslo and Austria booked with the latter through Bratislava. As a few have said previous £65 to Oslo was too good to turn down, yes the place is expensive but just don't go mad and you'll be fine and i'm only doing Sat-Mon Only booked Bucharest on the way out as the return was wild expensive so will be looking at options to get home at a later stage. Not probably the most attractive draw but i quite enjoyed Oslo the last time, absolutely loved Bucharest and with staying in lovely Bratislava instead of Vienna it should be a good set of matches. Of course if venues change then a bit more travel is involved but you just suck it up and get on with it 😀

    Post Mortem

    That was certainly the best recent performance I have witnessed against Germany. Can't fault the effort the players put in but as always against the big teams you need to take your chances if you want to get a result. Thought the tactical move of bringing Gnabry inside and playing a narrow front 3 confused us early doors 2nd half and got them into the spaces that caused us the most damage. Atmosphere in the 1st half was close to getting back to the good old days but still a bit to go. Early goal in the 2nd half killed it a bit. MOTM probably BFP with the saves followed closely by Jamal, as others have pointed out we found a couple of gems there as long as they keep progressing. Davis was excellent again as usual. Of the subs only Whyte really made any impact. Josh and Lavery didn't really do anything. McNair penalty dive was a bit like his performance, not the best which is disappointing especially after his excellent performance against Belarus.

    Just seen it Richard, disappointed that I got caught in possession after all that good work. The Boss gave me a rollicking for that lol!!!!!

    Happy enough with that result. Predicted a 3-0 win. I'd actually fancy us away in Tallinn as well. This Sunday though will be a far more difficult game. Thought everyone contributed well. Davis again being our main man. Good contribution down the left side and if Jones can just find that final product he will be a real asset for us over the years. Dallas looked good at RB McNair for me again showed why he's a Centre Half and that's nothing to do with the miss. My only real disappointment though was this new brand of football I was waiting to see which was spoke about by MON in the pre game press conferences.

    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    The fallout from this game is going to be great entertainment.

    Best and worst - Sarajevo

    Best: Great to explore a new city and tick off another place I have been to. Enjoyed walking through all the small alleyways and finding new place/bars to sit and watch the world go by. Going to Hadzici to watch FC Radnik Hadzici stroll to a comfortable 5-0 win in the Bosnbian 3rd Division. Standard might not have been great but the company was along with the setting. Klopa restaurant. Great food and great service. Getting the Tram to the ground and going in for pre-match drinks at a small bar right beside the stadium with the friendly locals. Atmosphere was definitely one of the best it's been in a long time, full credit to all the traveling GAWA Local police chief letting myself and 2 others go out at halt-time to go to the bar again and get a few drinks in before returning for the 2nd half, no issues whatsoever. After the match going back to the same bar and as Richard mentioned not leaving until eventually getting kicked out hours later by the local police. Worst: Result Not going on any of the tours or going up the cable car. Smoking in bars, forgot how great it is that this is banned back home. The trip home, after days spent in Bratislava, Vienna and Sarajevo it was certainly a challenge.

    Best and worst - Vienna

    Best: Only arrived in Vienna on the day so didn't get to see much as had to make the Fans Match. 3-3 draw with the Austrians which was a miracle considering how blitzed most players were. The wee amateur club after the fans match for drinks and a few songs. Went to the ground 20 minutes before kick off and seen the queue so headed back to the amateur club and had more drink, watched the anthems then walked back round and 5 minutes later was in the ground, don't know what all the fuss is about Worst: The result

    Israel (H) friendly - Sept 11

    Played with and know plenty of footballers who thought they where one position and ended up playing elsewhere to much success , again just my opinion.

    Israel (H) friendly - Sept 11

    He's a Centre Back all day long IMO and yes I agree he needs a settled position at club level to establish himself.

    Post mortem

    He was in the row directly in front of us and plenty of us gave him what for when he threw it. You are correct with his location and I hope something is done about it by the IFA

    Post mortem

    Like everyone, came away from that match thinking how did we lose. That's the best I have seen them play in a long time but at the end of the day it's about putting the ball in the back of the net. Some great spells of possession and moving the ball into the final third but we just lacked that killer instinct. Both their goals were obvious mistakes down to bad defending. The 1st one started from BPF's bad kick and ended with Lewis (who didn't have the best of games) completely switching off (not the first time he has done this) and allowing his man to run across him to score a tap in. Lack of awareness and communication. The 2nd was obviously a bad header back to BPF but on reflection I think he maybe could have went for the ball a bit more.
  24. All very good valid points I just thought from your original quote that you thought it would make no sense playing 3 at the back against 1 striker which isn't the case as there as so many ways to turn it into your advantage tactically. Anyway I'm sure Michael is well prepped as usual
