    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    I know what you mean, some people are very hard to please. Its easier for some to just moan and complain as it is to give praise.

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    Im pretty sure Michael did set out to wins games, the fact we didn't win them was because players couldn't put the ball in the net when it was needed. You cant blame Michael for that. Why is everyone so negative about the draw. We get the chance to see and the players get the chance to play against some of the best players in the game. Yes we could play against some crap teams, win the games and think we are the dogs Bollocks when we are actually achieving nothing. It might be hard to accept the defeats but we wont improve as a team unless we play better opposition and learn from them. Plus we get to play Holland which is what i have always wanted to see us do [ the friendly doesn't count ]

    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    The amount of Buckfast bottles lying around inside the stadium is a disgrace. Who cleans up the stadium after every International game ? Surely having to clean them up so often is brought to someone`s attention ? I'm not concerned about the rubbish that is left behind, it happens in all stadiums, but one of these days the type of people who bring in the bottles and then decide its ok to just leave them lying around are probably the type who would get angry at someone, ref/player and think nothing about throwing a throw a bottle onto the pitch. Then everyone suffers.

    Jones always looks like he hasn't got the brains to go with his speed and ability. Its one thing being fast and skilful but you have to be able to have an end product. Bit like Dallas at times. Its still very early yet with Jones, only his 5th cap i think so hopefully he can learn and improve.

    Austria at home.

    Did the under 16`s get a mention for winning the Victory Shield ?

    Neither team has anything to win/loose so no need to be all defensive, 2-2 with plenty of chances for both teams.

    How can you even think of such a thing ? ? Please no.

    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    With the Norwich boss complaining about giving Lewis a rest I would say Mon`s plans are to let him sit out training and the friendly. IF the Austria v Bosnia game on Thursday has the wrong result for us and leaves our game against Austria a dead rubber he might well leave him out for that game. If we can get anything from the Austria game then I would expect him to play in that.

    Was watching the Wigan v Leeds game on Sky the other day and it said Grigg wont play again until December after picking up a hamstring injury while playing for N.Ireland.

    Score Prediction v Rep of Ireland

    For some reason I feel their mob will be more up for this than ours so I cant see us getting anything from this game. Will take a 1 or 2 nil defeat and move on. Next Sunday is far more important.

    I believe they have used that training base in the past and by all accounts it is very very good, so I suppose that`s an excuse, but they still should be playing us up here.

    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    I don't/ never want us to play them if possible but did we not play them in the past down in Dublin [ friendly ] so why do we have to go down there again, why couldn't this game have been up here ?

    Post mortem

    I think the big question is not the playing of Boyce + Grigg together or even just one of them, its how we can improve on the quality of service to them. If we play Dallas and Magennis wide they work their socks off for the team but the problem is neither of them offer too much in the way of the quality when its really needed. There is no point playing Grigg and or Boyce then lumping it up in the air to them. Michaels team selections are going to be interesting now that the U21`s no longer have games at the same time as the senior team so plenty of options open to him.

    Just seen on the bbc sports page Dzeko has scored 55 goals in 98 appearances for Bosnia. Enough said.

    If we have all our usual strikers available Vassell wont get a look in.

    Agree with that. What do we have to lose giving him a proper go at it.

    Not able to watch this game but going by the reports on here we seem to have had a few decent chances. Goals win games and sometime when your luck out it`s out, even if some of the chances are good ones. Our present run of results isn't far away from what it was like when Micael came in, played some good stuff but did not getting the results. This down turn in results will change, Michael will sort things out and the experience gained by the new players will be good for them. Keep the faith good times will return.

    I wouldn't have started Fergie. I would have played McLaughlin at right back and played Paddy wide right, and moved Dallas back over to the left.

    Squad formation v Bosnia

    Nick a point against Bosnia and we will beat Austria at home. At this stage having 0 points avoiding relegation would be a bonus.

    Post Mortem

    Any decent side is built on a solid defence and a good spine down the middle of the team. We had 2 young players who are vastly inexperienced in our defence, our best centre back and our right back [ I don't think it`s McNairs best position anyway ] are not getting much game time for their clubs. Our captain and the player who makes us tick is also not getting games for his club and is nowhere near showing the level he has done for us I the past. Dallas and Ferguson for all their work rate and commitment don't give us the quality we need in wide areas so even against average teams we are going to find it hard. Whether people like him or not Lafferty is our best striker but when he decides he doesn`t want to play for what ever reason it doesn`t help matters. Losing experienced players like Big G, Hughes and Brunt is going to be a loss and it will take time to get the new guys up to speed. We are in a transition period now and we just have to take these sort of results on the chin and move on. It will get better.

    Never mind them, can we be as good again as we were in that first game ?

    Israel (H) friendly - Sept 11

    If it hadn`t been for Allan McGregor it would have been a lot worse. They got lucky with only a 2-1 defeat.
