    Just great to get a win and a clean sheet. Jones is very frustrating for me. Too many times he was carrying the ball towards our defenders instead of turning on a sixpence and being positive. Can see the same XI picked for Belarus.

    This is true, however, it must be said that from a Kazak point of view, they were 3 cracking goals. Clearly, that's the game of their life.

    Squad formation v Estonia

    With all the injuries and players off form, hats off to anyone who calls the correct XI! One person who is in good form and playing regularly is Ferguson, who hasn't got a look-in yet on this thread.

    Squad formation v Estonia

    3-5-2 could be the shout here. Big G's legs have gone but he's still a massive set piece threat and it allows Grigg to be partnered up front. BPF Cathcart McAuley J.Evans Dallas Davis C.Evans Saville Lewis Lafferty Grigg

    Surprised to see Hughes still there, sad for the legend, but his club career appears done. Norwood is a huge loss.

    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    It's hard to judge the performance levels against such low quality opposition...

    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    Fitness issues up front with Lafferty & Grigg. Washington missing again. Looking forward to Thompson - this guy really establish himself.

    100% agree with this view of Lennon. One of the funniest moments of last season was Lennon running onto the pitch in jubilation after their late equaliser in the bonkers Hibs 5-5 Rangers match. It's football as entertainment - not to be taken too seriously, sorry Bill Shankly.

    Post mortem

    Crossing is the weakest part of Dallas's game - which is odd for a wide man - but a primary reason for limiting him to where he's reached in his career. Magennis, however, I rate as a good crosser from the right wing. Seen a lot of it when he was at Killie.

    Lewis oh dear. Whyte oh dear oh dear. This Nations League campaign will live long in the memory - for all the f*ck ups.

    More frustration. A whisker away from 1-1. In the aftermath, I was thinking 3-5-2 straight away for Bosnia but no Grigg or Boyce makes that tricky. The full backs defensively are a liability. Lewis is raw and we can see him learning and improving. McNair is in the same boat - what is O'Neill's long term plan for him? 20 odd starts at RB and I'm sure he'll be fine but, ultimately, does he move to midfield (after Davis)? McLaughlin's never let us down at the back but the inclusion of McNair has an obvious upside in an attacking sense.

    Israel (H) friendly - Sept 11

    Scotland were dire - gubbed 2-1 by a mediocre Israel. They should be much better than that.

    Israel (H) friendly - Sept 11

    The biggest plus was probably the quality of McNair's set-piece delivery. The sky is the limit for that guy.

    Starting XI v Israel

    If O'Neill fancies a 3-5-2, he might stick McNair in the back three.
