    Score Prediction v Estonia

    Yes the result is all that matters. Thought the two CBs showed why they play in the premiership even though they weren't up against much but still looked in control. Midfield looked effective with davis running the show as always. Thought the wingers always looked as if they could create something. Lafferty was poor.

    Squad for Belarus and Estonia at home

    Can Ballard play right back in years to come? there isn't much competition at the moment. However If we play 3 at the back with 2 wing backs which perhaps suits our squad better it's a struggle to find a 3 cb to play. Hughes and mcauley are finished.

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    if we play to our strengths we could win our first 4 matches. I know the fixtures in the second half are incredibly hard but if we could win one of those and draw one we could be in with a shout if the big hitters drop points somewhere. I'm trying to convince myself here.

    They didn't even get Azerbaijan but Gibraltar. Azerbaijan would have beat them

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    There are 5 ifa employees at the draw. Oneill, David curry, Nelson, Martin and the pr guy. Good to see our block booking money isn't being wasted.

    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    Just read a lad from the Republic has been found dead in Copenhagen who was over for the match. very sad news indeed-i don't know the background of the death but I do often worry about the state people get themselves into on away trips.

    Line up/Match Thread

    I thought Michael Smith was excellent and McLaughlin will struggle to get back in. I thought we did ok tonight however Boyce should not be allowed to play upfront on his own against decent opposition. Oneill has to be braver with his line ups-What harm would it have been to play two up front.

    We're they aiming for our bench or Martin oneill?

    Fans sounded brilliant on the tv. On 2fm it said a bottle was thrown from the top of the stand and hit a kid-i assume that was a ROI supporter that threw the bottle-if not it would be all over social media. Great performance tonight on and off the ball. Think it says as much about the ROI as it does about us.

    Oneill doesn't get it does he. How many times do we have to watch this. I can understand it if we are up against a decent team but the ROI are our level. Would have liked to see mcnair in front of the back 4 instead of evans.

    Team Formation v RoI

    That should be the team Clint. This management stuff is easy isn't it.

    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    They will set it up as a fanzone with an overpriced bar and a Dublin Pete snodden equivalent playing snow patrol etc with face painters and other family games to show how nice the gawa are nowadays. Then they will bus our supporters in from there and back out again with a police escort and closed roads. (Only joking)

    Starting 11

    Micheal oneill does insist on playing one up front even though it has failed previously in nearly every away game. It is an option if Laverty is playing as he can win the odd header or hold a ball up however the formation does not work with a carthorse like magennis upfront. Our defence look so nervous at the moment and I don't know whether it's that they don't have confidence in the young keeper or we are missing the calming influence of mcauley and Hughes. Thought Davis looked poor tonight but that is what happens when you aren't playing every week. Saying all that Austria were not great tonight and expect to beat them at Windsor.

    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    That is exactly why they have priced it as so. They don't want it to kick off.
