Why oh why have we waited for Austria to score before we started moving the ball and putting some effort in? 

Nothing to do with the team, its only after they scored that Michael changed the formation... Far too negative for the first 80mins, same old story

Now that we're pressing we look a lot better.

Unlucky Grigg, great great effort 

Michael got this all wrong tonight...

I agree. Way too cautious.

 

That's the Nations League f**ked in a decent winable group.

This playing 1 up top sh*t has to stop, it’s only when we go behind and put two up top do we look like making chances!!!

Agreed it's different if we're playing a really good side and need to defend, but we're starting to play one up top in basically every away game, even against teams around the same level as ourselves.

Thought Lewis and McNair were having great games but both at fault for the goal. Typical Northern Ireland really . Not taking our chances. Relegation looms

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.

Take mcauley and lafferty out of our side and our goal threat is minimal. Only Grigg looks likely really but he doesn’t fit the 1 up top formation. 

This is the worry, especially with Davis getting very little game time too. Blunts the goal threat significantly.

Just don't defend well at the minute. Badly missing the understanding we had between the defenders when McAuley and  Brunt where in there. 

Just hoping it's a bedding in period for Lewis and McNair to get up to speed with international football. Lets not forget it took McAuley a while to adapt too.
