    So frustrating. Go get a decent keeper. McCarey awful in a game that was absolutely there for the taking.

    McCarey soft for all 3 goals, and awful for the 3rd.

    Had to pop out for a while. Came in to see Dundalk miss a sitter of a header from a corner and then concede a shocker to go 3-2 down. I can see why McCarey hasnít replaced Rogers! He has similar issues.

    Have to feel for McCarey there. Had the look of a guy who knows his career is on the line after the third. Really puts things in perspective a bit.

    I've seen a lot of LOI goalkeepers have nightmares in Europe but I think McCarey has taken the gold medal tonight.
    The worst thing about it is this was probably the poorest team I've ever seen a LOI team play in the group stages. They're horrendous at the back.

    Feel for him alright. He was a lad who looked like he had a big career ahead. Never seems to have got going again after the failed drug test issues.

    He was questionable for all 3 goals I saw. Not sure about the other one.

    What a strange game.

    To be honest, I thought Dundalk were very much second best in that, and yet are a bit unlucky not to come away with something. They were gifted the first - offside and then a keeper howler - and two penalties always helps. Livescore says they were Dundalk's only shots on target in the whole game (maybe Duffy's one in the first half was going wide).
    But the general ball retention was poorer than in the other two games and Rapid were certainly pressing more throughout.

    Leave the keepers out of it - and Rapid's keeper was ****e as well; probably should have saved the first penalty too - and Rapid still deserved the win overall I think. But Dundalk will have to think they can take something out of the return.

    David McMillian has become joint 1st with Glen Crowe on 11 goals in European competition. McMillian also becomes the first LOI player to score double figures with a single LOI club.

    True they looked average but Dundalk played very well.

    If we could play like that and certain periods of European games the title race would have been good

    They are alot stronger domestically than Wolfsebuger who beat Feyenord 4-1 last week and LASK who beat Sporting Lisbon 4-1 to qualify

    Now I know how Rovers fans felt a couple of years ago with their selection of terrible keepers. If we had a good keeper we would have won that game.

    Could be worse. Celtic getting tonked at home by a side who has players missing through illness and injury. On top of that the Czech League is suspended due to COVID. Europe is very tough. You just have to look at some of the hammerings again week. I thought before the group commenced that Molde at home was the easiest of the 6 to pick up a point. I would say after 3 GWs it would actually be Wien.

    Very unlucky for Dundalk tonight. They should take confidence from this that Wien are beatable in the Aviva. Oduwa and McMillan were a great double sub. Best I've seen Oduwa play. Didn't see McMillan scoring two! The need for a new goalkeeper(s) is painfully obvious now, however.

    Another night and that could be near €600k banked as that game was winnable. Very frustrating not to at least draw when its level with 4-5minutes left especially when there are blunders.

    Ye have to feel for McCarey really as he did some very good things but of course that counts for nothing when goals are gift wrapped. Keepers are the fall guys but often there is a series of errors in the lead up. First goal there was acres of space given for the shot with closing down poor. I have had a good look back to see if there was any movement of the ball but nope, it was a bit of a rasper but the keeper didnt get anything on it when it was pretty much sent down his throat. Poor positioning, slow reaction, if he gad got a glove on it and still gone in well at least the power n the shot carried it through could be the rolled out reason.

    2nd goal is arguably a bit harsh to blame the keeper. Alex Ferguson hated having a keeper not well over 6ft (why he wouldnt consider Given when the likes of Taibi was throwing the ball in to his own net) and this goal arguably shows why. He was at full stretch and just about deflected the ball off target in to the path of a Vienna player to nod in to an empty net. But where were the Dundalk players not tracking the player or at minimum plugging the gap in behind McCarey.

    3rd Well an unnecessary free given away first after some sloppy passing but ye cant make excuses for being so far off claiming the ball. 2 games game in a row wth 2 different keepers. Poor judgement but with Rogers experence I think it was the worst of the 2 clangers.

    Not getting points last night is not just about the keeper, and while Venna were wasteful also, Duffy shoud have done a bit better when through on goal, maybe under some pressure from a defender, should have taken a shot rather than cut inside imo, but when he did cut in he scuffed the shot with the keeper committed to dive toward the far post. If he had lofted the ball the keeper was out of it, easy said watchng back on slowmo replays. Slogget free header was a sitter, he took the ball off Cleary's head who was also free in behind. We got some luck with the first but Hoban is good at getting something behind those headers from distance off a deep cross, sending them toward the bottom corners. It had to be on target to have a chance of going in so credit there. Oduwa is a frustrating player but his trickery led to 2 goals. There is a serious player there to work on and worth his spot in the squad in the hope he improves the lasier side to his game.

    All that was missing from last night was a red card. It sits up there with the sense that LoI team can and do regularly implode undoing some great work. I think that is chance gone on the basis that teams will always be a bit complacent first tie and they will have more stealiness next time home or away. Ye have to live in hope, there is still an outside chance of €1.2mil when out of the group bar a freakish set of results including at home of Arsenal last up when they have already secured a last 32 slot.

    Most sides make errors every game, the main difference is that Irish side dont punish lapses, better European sides do. It unoubtedly plays on players minds not to to make any catastrophic error which of course is when they do exactly that.
