    There’s nothing he’ll want more than to get abuse for 90 minutes. I’m sure we’ll oblige him though.

    I’m sure they’ll be full of sensible people. Terrible decision to play this game.

    They’ve a £30m striker to finish their chances, that was pretty much the difference. Decent effort from NI. Really need one of our strikers to step up in the qualifiers. From what I’ve seen in these games I’d give Grigg the opportunity.

    Creating far more chances than in a normal away game, which is reassuring because our record of creating chances away from home is a concern.

    If the ‘competition’ ever mattered, that stopped when we lost twice. Our own manager has talked about not being bothered about it other than as preparation for the real qualifiers, so while every game matters... this one doesn’t mean as much as a qualifier. Some miss from Whyte!

    Hilarious isn’t it

    We’re away from home against a decent quality opponent, in a game that doesn’t mean much. We’ve created several good chances and are only behind due to a mistake. A bit of perspective wouldn’t go amiss.

    The rest of our players are so good that they’ve been carrying him that whole time. It makes their achievements all the more remarkable.

    Yep. Doing his job. We’ll miss him when he’s suspended next game.

    Haha. This thread is brilliant. Reminds me why I don’t usually look at it during a game.

    Not that arsed about that, happy with how we played against Bosnia, but we were pretty awful this evening. Austria are not good, they were there for the taking.

    That’s fair enough then. I wouldn’t have brought him on before Grigg though. Both Vassell and Magennis were sh*te. That’s not to say they won’t be ok at some other point.

    This nations league thing is dopey, so I’m not arsed about relegation, but we were poor all over the park tonight. If I’m Liam Boyce, putting my time in for years, and some random stranger is getting off the bench ahead of me, I’d knock it on the head. Vassell looked clueless, caught under the ball like a Sunday league player. I suppose the only way is up. Friendlies are sh*te!

    Squad v Austria (A) and Bosnia (A)

    Back to Rangers, back to being a big time Charlie? Hopefully not. Will wait and see what he has to say.

    Won't be anywhere near it. Terrible, terrible idea.

    You have to remember the "unattractive opposition" LBL... plus if we had another 7,000 seats there we could bring the price way down and more people would come. Or something.

    It will be closed from now on apparently. There’s another entrance about 200 metres down the road to the right.

    17 corners and no return... the one we actually put in the box at the end, we scored from. I was losing my mind with the short corners. The nadir being when someone took one short to Cathcart to cross in..

    Post mortem

    Frustrating experience. Played pretty well but our lack of a cutting edge is as evident as it has ever been. An inauspicious debut for BBF. Great performance from Norwood. Dallas must have hit about 25 crosses. 1 of them was decent. Whoever dictated our approach to 17 out of 18 corners needs a good kick in the balls. As does Lafferty who was our worst player by a country mile. Was back to his old, diving self. Must be the Glasgow air.

    Match predictions v. Bosnia-Herzegovina

    We should still build a bigger ground in case we draw England some time. Northern Ireland 0-2 Bosnia-Herzegovina

    Must be the unattractive opposition. Good news for the hundreds of new supporters we have who are currently locked out of the stadium though.

    The IFA post some amount of embarrassing sh*te. That love island thing is right up there with their greatest hits. The twitter feed must be operated by a 12 year old girl.
