    Would be expecting a more comfortable win than the away game. Like many I blamed the wind for our less than stellar showing then, so it will be good if they can confirm that opinion by scoring a few tonight.

    Agree with the above, Hope O'Dowda sees some game time as well, Now is the time to check out our options in midfield, hopefully McCarthy and Arter are back in contention come September.

    I'd like that team also but I want O'Dowda instead of McClean.

    Would second that. I think McClean is at best a mascot for the Irish team. Massive commitment and passion, but no footballing justification for his continuing presence on the pitch.

    With everyone fit I think a front 3 of Robinson McGoldrick and Long would be a handful.

    Harsh on Keogh actually who at this point in time I'd trust more than Egan. He may have been the guy nearest the scorer on Friday but he was blameless in my opinion for what was actually a very good goal. Maybe the runner might have been tracked but I think Coleman got sucked inside and made it to easy for the guy who crossed the ball to switch onto his right foot. But let's be fair, it was a great cross, great run and great header.

    I don't blame Keogh at all for the goal.it was the midfield fault.
    My thoughts are that egan is a player who can develop into the role and he has youth on His side. If we were playing the swiss today I would defo stick with keogh

    Stop calling Darren Randolph - Randy. For F**k sake. This isn't a rodeo.

    I don’t think it’s that bad. At least look like creating something, if maybe trying to force it too much at times. Duffy missed a sitter early on too. Hoping there’s at least 3 or 4 goals there if the first one goes in.

    There's decent moments, but my overall impression is of s technically poor side with little movement, no real eye for a pass and an unwillingness to try beat the first man.

    We should still win, but overall I'm worried

    Poor performance for sure. But the goal will settle us. We will have better players available to us in the autumn.

    The tone was set from the kick off when we packed the left side in a clear pre-planned move (rugby-style) with McClean, McG and Stevens all charging forward before receiving the thump forward from the center half (think it was Keogh). Bizarre stuff against Gibraltar. Downright embarrassing to be honest. At least our 21s are playing some nice football

    We really are missing a Wes type player to pull the strings in a game like this
