the team played well Westwood O'Shea and Wilson had nothing to do. Wasn't too impressed with his decision to pick Ward I would have prefered to see O'Brien instead. Ward had little to do but he didn't really get forward. Coleman played very well getting forward and creating a goal.
Whelan played well showed for the ball and passed well he faded in the second half. McCarthy looked comfortable on the ball and linked well with Holoahan in the 4-4-1-1 formation. Keane was very good in the first half got a goal and forced a couple of saves out of the keeper faded in the second half. McClean and McGeady both played very well MON believes in McClean and you can see he was full of confidence and he was man of the match McGeady had one of his better games and took his goal well.
Walters was involved in to build up to Long goal Long ran an harried the defence an Reid took over were Holohan left off playing simple good passes.
For the first time in a long time their a real buzz around the stadium. Looking forward to seeing what tactics we'll play and team selection against better quality opposition away from home. 17 November 2013 13:27 Started on 'The ROI Green Room' forum

McShane O'Dea Keogh and Sammon against the best side in the World is going to be a disaster. It doesn't matter who he picked even if it was our best team we wouldn't have a hope of getting a result under Trap.
Spain last home WCQ was a 1-1 draw against Finland. Yes that's right Finalnd with no world class players and a side who are ranked below Ireland. Scotland went to Croatia and won 1-0 in Croatia with a lot of players who were reserves for their clubs. The managers achieved these results by believing in their players encouraging them picking the best players available using modern tactics and tactics that suited the players. Trap does the opposite of this and this is why we'll lose to Spain Germany and fail to beat Austria and Sweden. 11 June 2013 14:40 Started on 'The ROI Green Room' forum
