    Post mortem

    Agree with your last paragraph, would love to see a Grigg/Boyce partnership form, they came on against Bosnia home and there looks to be something there.

    Post mortem

    We have built our recent success on having a mean defence and scoring at the other end, that defence is now in transition and will certainly take time to gel as the last 3 games testify. There is definitely the makings of a good team here and it will eventually click so as Mick said after the play off loss there will be bumps in the road and that's what we are having now. I still think we will get it right and qualify for Euro 2020 as we are formidable at Windsor and given the amount of chances we created away in the last two games, if we cut out out the daft mistakes, we can definitely take points away from home. There is plenty to be positive about as Neil Lennon summed up well on Sky last night.

    Line up/match thread

    Would love to have seen Magennis and Boyce up front, a bit conservative from Mick, hopefully Whyte and Jones introduced 2nd half.

    Correct about a minor transition, it's about giving game time to the likes of BPF, Whyte, Lewis and Saville, I think Michael said recently that within the next 12-18 months a number of U21 players should also be ready for the step up so things are changing so performances and big game experience are key for him at the moment and not so much results, he's building towards the Euros and these games are perfect for that but with regard to our first two opening Nations League games we created 34 chances and only scored 1 goal which after tonight will probably be in the forties but hopefully with a lot more goals.

    He saved us in San Marino with 20 mins left and facing the unspeakable, against Austria was a thankless task as with no supply and no partner you are going to struggle away from home, if he plays tonight I hope Michael gives him some support.

    Squad formation v Bosnia

    BPF EVANS CATHCART LEWIS MCNAIR DAVIS NORWOOD SAV JONES MAGENNIS VASSELL Looks like Grigg is out and Boyce is doubtful so give it a lash with two up front with McNair and Jones supporting the front two.

    Squad formation v Bosnia

    Looks like Boyce took part in training this morning so fingers crossed

    Squad formation v Bosnia

    Radio Ulster said Grigg is out with a hamstring injury.

    The 2nd qualifier in a row were we deserved at least a draw, three chances and no goals! As has been said, Josh needs a partner up front and it was crying out for Grigg at half time, whilst gutted at the defeat there is still 4 or 5 players on single figure caps so this is all good experience for them.

    Kyle saying he pulled out because of an achilles problem and Rangers saying that's not correct and he's fit according to Mark Mcintosh.

    Score Predictions

    2-2 (Norwood Grigg)
  14. Only 500 tickets left for the Austria game at Windsor Park according to the IFA, some going if true.

    Squad v Austria (A) and Bosnia (A)

    Washington out due to personal reasons says Mick.
  16. Northern ireland 3 Israel 1 (Boyce Lafferty Grigg)
  17. RichardM

    Starting XI v Israel

    I think Laff and Grigg could work with supply from Jordan Jones, worth a try on Tues night.

    Post mortem

    Didn't make the game but watched it back and cannot believe we didn't even get a point! An excellent performance but very wasteful at times, would love to see Jordan Jones and Will Grigg get a start on Tues night, if we play like that against Israel then it could be some night, come Euro 2020 qualification I think this squad will be better and a bit more savvy so I think there is plenty to get excited about.

    Squad v Bosnia (and Israel)

    I'm in Majorca, flight tmw at 11.30am and lands at approx 2.10pm, minus the hour that leaves it 1.10pm, prob could have made 2nd half but sitting this one out.
  20. RichardM

    Mate has a spare ticket for Bosnia game (sat) face value was £40 but he'll take £30, it's East Stand, realise there is plenty left but PM me whoever interested.

    Squad v Bosnia (and Israel)

    Would love to see a Lafferty /Grigg partnership evolve, two players who are in good form so I hope Michael tries it..... you never know.

    Squad v Bosnia (and Israel)

    No sign of Liam Feeney, Cameron McGeehan! Niall Keown! Must all be injured, only jesting BTW!

    Squad v Bosnia (and Israel)

    Jamie Ward? I like Jamie but he hasn't played since S Korea? Disappointed no Smyth or Whyte, they could have played v Israel maybe. Good to see Michael Smith and Grigg back.
