    Robinson should be still on FFS,braindead tackle from Arter on the edge of the box knowing they have that free taking ability from there,Randolph unsighted by his own wall,you couldn't script this stuff.

    Giggs has had a poor enough tenure as Welsh manager, he is lucky in his last 4 games he's managed to find himself in the fortunate position that his team play against a coaching staff thats somehow even worse than him. Our only attacking tactic now is put the ball in the box and hope the Welsh make a mistake.

    Great job not getting rid of MON when you had the chance! We are literally a dead animal being dragged along on a leash now.

    Game Over, just to confirm if it isnt obvious to the FAI already that nothing has changed in a year only now all our luck has well and truly run out, time for O'Neill to stop making excuses and just leave.

    First half was one of the worst 45 minutes of football I've ever seen. Pathetic. O'Neill has to go.

    One of the glaring characteristics of this Irish team is the almost non-existent off-the-ball movement. It has been there for a long time though - since the Trapattoni era.

    Whilst getting rid of O'Neill might give us an initial bounce, let's not kid ourselves either. There's just a basic lack of quality in this squad.

    Our centre midfield has been so crap for so long that we could patent the donut formation.

    Time up on Martin O'Neill. Good luck and good riddance.

    At least we'll always have that O'Gara drop goal.

    In our last 6 competitive home games against comparable teams (wales austria serbia denmark denmark wales) we have scored 2 goals and won none. Thanks for the Euros Martin and all the best. Neil Lennon anyone?

    Glad you see it also Fly. I've been saying it for some time as well. Far too many on here trying to defend the players' rubbish performances time in and time out.

    It's a shame O'Neill has clung (or been allowed to cling) on for this long. It's clear he has nothing else to offer. As per usual, we've gone one campaign too long with a manager.

    FAI paying the price for not getting rid of the two of em while they had a chance of doing it without paying, now we are all going to pay the price for it.

    We were playing a kids team, tonight above all shows us that literally nothing is being done at training and as usual it shows on the pitch when w play teams that actually do their homework. If it really is lack of quality than thats further proof that O'Neill needs to go, he and co are not capable of getting the best out of what they have so they have ultimately failed their job.

    Irish fans can now go back to watching Liverpool & co in the PL. We’ll all rant and rave but nothing ever changes.

    Could also be that we have had a decade of being managed by dinosaurs.

    We need to get rid of O'Neill. We also need to get rid of the Denis O'Brien money. Then we need to appoint a young, hard working and knowledgeable manager. We also need to reform the FAI from top to bottom.

    I was never a fan of O'Neill's sides throughout his career in club management and wouldn't be fussed one way or the other if he was given the boot. I'm always a bit dubious about managers staying beyond that 4 year international cycle anyway.

    I'm just saying that people need to be realistic. We lack quality and there's no two ways about that. It's the off the ball movement that's the biggest giveaway for me ~ just braindead stuff.

    Definitely we needed to bring some creativity to midfield . The most creative midfielder on the subs bench should have been brought on .

    You dont need to be quality to be good at most things we complain about, thats the point its just a complete **** show. All the evidence has shown that O'Neill does f-all with the players and only now when he has clearly lost the dressing room are roosters coming home to roost.
