    Hopefully the captain is staying behind after training and hitting a few!

    Some Bosnian fans though he was the Messiah, but he was just a very naughty boy.

    Not good news for us, wish he'd stayed.

    Should have been a penalty for Saville, the ref bottled it as the game had more or less kicked off and just didn't want to award it, I think George missed a great chance with a header out there and Whyte hit the post and then missed an open goal! If we are more or less at full strength we have a serious chance, if I had to pick an away game from Bosnia/RoI/Slov, it would be this one.

    First bit of luck we've had in years! If that doesn't incentivise Michael and the players then nothing will, should put a spring in their step walking out onto the pitch in Bosnia.

    Yes it will be tough but with the amount of chances we created home and away, I would be quietly confident as I'm sure the players and Michael ONeill are, given their post match interviews.

    Slovakia are a good side and they have home advantage, going to be a tough test for the Rep.

    I like the look of Jordan Thompson, he shone in the U21s and is going to be a really top player for us in years to come, I think Michael playing it smart by easing him into recent starting 11's alongside SD is an excellent move and he did OK last night in difficult circumstances. Definitely one for the future along with Galbraith and McAlmont with the veteran Paddy McNair as the captain.

    That would be my guess as well, he's been quoted as saying he wants to be around for a while yet which would probably mean wanting to be the most capped British Isles player ever. Hopefully stays for the 2022 World Cup campaign and then maybe that's it?

    Germany are such a good side that they do that to a lot of teams, especially teams that aren't at full strength. They are relentless but as Michael said this game will have no bearing come March and we should have a lot of guys back Inc Jordan Jones who I think we've missed lately with his pace and trickery and you could add Dallas and Whyte to that list, there was nothing on the wings last night and we looked very laboured. Still, didn't Germany stick 7 passed Brazil at the World Cup so they've got form for that!

    I'm using reverse psychology for this Rd, keep the faith😁

    Northern Ireland v Slovakia @ Windsor Park... 31.3.2020 has a nice look to it! Think we'll know on Friday who has home advantage for the final.

    One big positive was Michael Smith's screamer, as good a Northern Ireland goal as I've seen since Healy against Austria in 2004. We should really be making more of that left foot of his. This game will be quickly forgotten about by Michael and the players as the work starts now for Bosnia, the Germans are simply different class and with 4 or 5 of our main guys out, a grubbing was on the cards which is really no surprise in what was for us a meaningless match. I'm off to plan a trip to Sarajevo!
