    Big to the fans who where there. Sounded and looked great on TV.

    You can have the best manager in the world and have the best plans made for a game but if you don't have the right players to carry out the plan it means nothing. We didn't have the players last night to make the Germans change their style of play. If someone had gone man for man on Kroos and stopped him getting the ball then that would have left a gap in midfield which they would have exploited. We set up to try and stop them playing through our midfield by having plenty of men in there, Kroos just stayed out of there and that give him all the time in the world to do as he pleased when he had the ball. Their movement off the ball was great and will cause trouble for much better teams than us. Back to earth with a big bump after last night but we still can have a real go against Bosnia without a doubt. Is there extra time and penalties in the play off games ? God help us if we have to find 5 players to take penalties 😄

    Looking at Wales group IF the Wales v Hungry game ends in a draw and Slovakia beat Azerbaijan, Slovakia would move onto 13 points the same as Hungry but they would have the better head to head over Hungry and take the second automatic qualifying spot. These set of results would mean Hungry finish 3rd and Wales 4th does this change anything regarding the paly offs ?

    That could well have been them as one of them appeared to be an older man and the other much younger.

    I would happily take any scenario as long as it means avoiding Wales + ROI in any play off game.

    A 7:45pm kick off on a Saturday evening is always going to lead to some guys having 1 or 2 too many. Saw some sort of commotion on the bridge at Tates avenue which i imagine was down to guys being pissed judging by the state of some of them. A couple of guys lying on their back on the pavement with some others pushing and shoving and heard one guy say he called me a Fenian B*****d

    Decent first half then we never layed a glove on them in the second. Davis wasn't his normal self last night unfortunately, poor by his normal standards and I think we suffered a bit due to that. When he's on his game he makes us tick we don't have anyone at the moment to do that for us if he isn't on form. Dutch were more than happy to take a point and as the game wore on and we tired they just played keep ball. We looked solid last night which is good but as we all know we are badly in need of a goal scorer. I think Saville's performances are suffering as McNairs did in that he isn't getting anywhere near enough game time for Middlesbrough, he isn't anywhere near match fit. Surprised at Thompson getting on but also glad to see it he could be useful for us in the future but think he needs to be playing at a higher standard than league 1.

    Hateful country. That point for Turkey will more than likely stop Iceland from qualifying automatically which I think is good for us.

    This next series of games should make the play off situation a little bit more clear, so what teams do we need to win and what teams do we need to loose ?

    Score Prediction - N. Ireland v Holland

    I hope I'm wrong but I cant see us qualifying from this group so for me 2 good performances are a must so that we can go into any play off games with a lot of confidence. If we get a bit of luck we can beat the Dutch at home but cant see us beating the Germans on their own patch.

    Slim chance single ticket

    Have the Dutch returned some of their tickets ? just got an email saying a number of tickets have been made available for the game.

    I just hope and pray we dont have to play either the ROI or Wales at any stage. Lets hope results work out so that that never occurs.

    I hope fixtures end up so that we avoid both Wales and the ROI in the play-offs.

    If we can produce good performances in the next 2 games that would set us up well for going into any potential play-off regardless of who we play. Im sure its been mentioned on here already but have dates been arranged for play-off games ?

    Cant see the Faroes getting anything from their game against Romania tonight, but possibly can beat Malta in their next game.

    Saville was also wrecked against Germany when he was taken off, i guess thats down to very little game time that he is getting at Boro. Very difficult to step up and play at that level when not really match fit. But he gets through a lot of work for us every time he plays.

    When we took the big scalps we had a goal scorer, and a real threat from set pieces something we dont have now unfortunately.

    Ok i stand corrected. Lets give a real go then and carry the good performances in those playoff`s

    To feel this bad after a defeat against a team of the quality of Holland, and especially away to them just shows how far we have come in recent years. Have to agree bringing Thompson on with no experience and in such a vital part of the game was strange/poor

    Gutted, but its not over yet. We can with a bit of luck beat them at Windsor then go into the last game against Germany [with them already qualified] needing a point. With another flat out performance we can do it.
