    Liam Kelly at Feyenoord too. Although he hasnít really been able to properly make the breakthrough there.

    He earned a 10/10 for effort this evening , such an impressive work rate, the guy just self generates energy. in the mix for man of the match, in the LB position which is probably his weakest.

    Funny how people can interpret games so differently. No question he put in a great shift in terms of work rate, in what was a terrific team performance.

    But itís clear heís not a fullback from his positioningó early in the match especially I thought he allowed his marker to cross into the box too easily. Grew into the match to be fair and Iím happy for him.

    BBC's match report said he was out of his depth!

    Nice for the Fella to be getting this opportunity heading for the twilight of his career . Nice to play for a Club of Celtics size .

    Not so much out of depth, he was out of sorts in the position as a wing back in a 352, but also the whole team were out of sorts for the first 30 or so minutes. He's a very confident player, as if he hasn't the slightest doubt about his ability to play a role, any role at this level. He eventually got control of the left side, helped out in the centre, even made a few interventions on the right side as well as those support sprints along the left wing.

    It's mainly why I'm not a fan of 352 for Ireland, when you don't have round pegs for round holes, it's to do with a level of uncertainty and unfamiliarity with the structure, for those first 30 minutes in that game Celtic should have been punished greater.

    But we do have round pegs for round holes in a 352. Stevens and Doherty excel in their roles in a 352. Egan, Duffy, Clark all perfect for it. Which is why it's just bizarre that Mick started 352 with Stevens left centre back. Ridiculous really.

    Regardless of who are in the 5 at the back (3+2), the midfield 3 still need to be able to not lose the ball. The Celtic Lazio game demonstrated in the first 30 minutes what mayhem can happen to a 352 when the middle 3 keep losing the ball. And that was with 3 very decent central defenders.
    Of course we have some players who can do 352 but we don't have a team who can just step into the maelstrom of two crunch games and do it against two very capable teams like Swiss and Denmark who will retain possession and press hard until they get the clear advantage.
    Ireland's chronic problem is with central midfield and added to that is a coach who is struggling to make the best sense out of what we have.
