    Meyler in for O'Dowda is the only change, as expected. Murphy given the nod up front again.

    It's going to come down to who has more energy. Nervous that the Danes are going to get one early.

    Been there,done it. Got the shirt!

    Iíd love us to win, but itís a poor team and squad.

    We just defended over there, if we come out and play they will pick us off and expose our poor defence!

    Iíd have Long in for Murphy. Wouldíve liked Hoolahan to start but need him to come on not too late at least. OíNeill possibly retiring him tonight

    Not a great team at all is it? Trying to get into Martin's head, which isn't easy at the best of times, it looks like he's going to hoof it long to Murphy for the first half and hope the game is scoreless at the break. Then, one would hope, he'll spring Hoolahan, O'dowda, and Long for the second 45. That's the only thing that would make sense to me

    Keep it tight for 60mins, then enter Wes & Long to send us to Russia.

    What is the problem with scoring first and having Denmark have to adjust...feel like the whole "Wes will score in the 88th minute and we win 1-0" thing is playing with FIRE. Big time fire lads. Which ever version you like, Springsteen or the Pointer Sisters.

    Horrible feeling itís going to be glorious failure. We score in the first 10mins and concede an injury time away goal. 80 odd mins of torturous hope then pain. Itís the Irish way.

    Holohan, oDowda and Long off the bench if chasing it.

    Whelan and the two Longs if weíre defending a lead.

    There's no way Wes will come on if it's still 0-0 after 60 minutes. In fact, I can envisage us getting more compact and primitive the closer we get to 90 minutes. O'Neill will see it as too risky throwing on creative players late on when a goal for Denmark would all but kill us off.

    Would agree, but for the fact that Denmark will overrun us in ET. Think we win this in 90 or don't win it at all, and i think MON and Keane know that.

    Dam so disappointed the scored before I could get a bet on lol.. maybe it was better I didn't knowing my luck.

    But a long was to go... don't think we can defend so early, more of the same is best plan.
