    Draw out in Russia and win the rest should see us topping the group. Russia still have to go to Slovakia (and Armenia tomorrow) so I'm hoping they will drop points.

    Topping this group should still be the priority.

    Very hard to do that when our roughly €2m per year DVD watching manager thinks that a 34 year old League 1 midfielder (who should have retired after the last campaign) is our best left back and that an average Championship player who can't make it at Celtic is a better player than a solid Aston Villa defender. Ridiculous.

    It's such a weird decision, even by Trap standards. He finally is giving Foley a go over Kelly - presumably cause Foley's playing at Prem level regularly - yet he could choose O'Dea over Clark. A Premiership performer and team-mate of Dunne's. Presumably it's because O'Dea's been around the squad a while and maybe was considered 'next in line' but the same doesn't apply to Kelly. And there's negligible difference in actual international experience. Baffling. I won't believe it till I see the team-sheet though...

    Lets just win this one sat night first. With the injuries we have a win of any description here will do fine. The rugger lads seems to cast off the poor start at the aviva last wkd lets hope we can do the same now. I think going forward we are as strong as we have being in a long time, with options on the bench. CM and the defence are the worries for me. But hopefully with Richie and Sledge fit, Gibson and Whelan doing a job in midfield until McCarthy comes on I think and hope we will sneak it. Im going for 2-0 to us.

    1-0 and very edgy throughout. goal likely from a set-piece or a defensive error.

    I still believe we will just about win this one but the decision to play O'Dea over Clark (allegedly)is just another strange decision by Trapatonni. O'Dea's career has gone badly backwards (and has never been a fixture in the Irish team). Clarks has gone forwards. Clark played well against Wales and yet probably won't start tomorrow. All the strange decisions by Trapatooni are eventually going to catch up with him and us. Hopefully not this weekend. 2-1.

    And sure, we're crap at them anyway....

    We wont win enough games to 'top' the group, though we may not lose again....on the plus side.

    Well, Id take a play off spot (though Id rather win the group obviously whilst it still up for grabs).

    Yes, we are crap at play offs, though we have won one, and the great memories of those finals are still fresh in the memory.

    You need to lighten up, we are not Brazil but its not like you are used to watching football purists week in week out is it?

    We'll win tomorrow. No danger.





    There, I've said it. Gulp!

    It depends where you are in exile!

    www.espn3.com will have the game live in the US and ESPN Australia are showing the game live (6.45am Sunday morning). Otherwise, as suggested above www.myp2p.eu is probably the best place to start.

    None of us see everything that happens in training though lads. When it is close in the managers mind, he lets people play their way in. Not saying wrong or right but it is how he looks at it. Personally, I think competition helps. Maybe O'Dea has looked the bit beter than CC.

    Ya that might be true but clark is definitely quicker than O'dea and in match pace that is not seen in Training. Thats only a small part of it too though.

    He is sounding more and more like Roy Keane the manager with his "how players work in training". I bet lots of established players have been outshone by newcomers in training and the newomers still don't get to play under Trap. You can get away with eccentric player selection when you are winning matches. When you have just collected 1 point from a possible 6 not so.

    1-0 to us.

    A penalty.
    I think I should the parachute, because I'm great.

    In fact, I think I should get both parachutes, in case one doesn't work.

    2-0 to Ireland.

    Header from Kilbane arising from a set piece. And a second half Keane shin/shot special into the bottom corner after some good work by Duff
    I pity the fool!.... But suggest ways that he might improve himself.

    Have we ever topped a group? Genuine question.
    With all the talent we had early 90s with McGrath, Keane, Houghton, Quinn, Moran etc....I actually don't think we ever topped a group??

    We topped our qualifying group for Euro 88 - its the only way you could qualify.

    I'll go for us having more of the territory, but being pretty poor creatively. Either 0-0 or we nick one and they can't get back into the game.
