    I think Idah needs support. He took the ball through from Brady well but he needed someone making a run for him to lay it off to. It was a good tackle to deny him but there was another defender covering. It would have been wonder goal territory to score on his own.

    The thing with Idah is that he looks so cumbersome at times but I've seen him show ridiculous skill. I still think there's more to be gained by sticking with him but he needs to pick it up.

    He needs some more Steak and Stew.

    This is one of my concerns with Kenny’s system which I noted with under 21s too. The lone forward gets isolated all too often.

    A better showing so far but lacking the cutting edge. Idah needs to bulk up a bit and work on his hold up play. He looks lightweight but I think the issue is just as much about body positioning as it is anything else. Needs to learn how to shield the ball.

    I’ve always been skeptical of Horgan but generally I’m pleasantly surprised. He regularly beats his man and always gets a few dangerous balls into the box. Not a star but better than many here give him credit for.

    Brady miles better than Hourihane centrally. Creates chances and willing to take a shot when it’s on offer — suspect he would have scored had he been playing more at club level. Molumby gives our midfield some balls. Hopefully we can push on and get a goal now.

    We have a chance here. Much depends on how Kenny uses his bench. Knight, Curtis and Byrne would be three that could cause this Welsh side bother. They are not great and we could use a bit of variety in our attack (again).

    Kenny needs to be given the next campaign to get his squad playing how he wants. We may be on a bad run and have been many times before and changed manager which only gives short term change. Stick with him and see if he can get us to 2022.

    Brady should have had a go there rather than trying to slip a ball into the box.

    One great ball there from O’Shea to McClean ~ ~ A forward ball that had attack minded all over it !

    One thing is for sure, Kenny’s passing game does not suit Randolph. Hopefully one of our 3 younger keepers supersedes him soon

    Commentators all over Duffy for that goal, but I don't think it was his fault at all. He's been working his socks off.

    I get that we're trying to play a passing game, but the only time we look like scoring is off a set piece from Robbie Brady.

    ***** sake. Despite being the better team, the lack of a cutting edge means all it takes is one chance and it’s back to Groundhog Day.

    Brady has put in decent set pieces but there has to be more variety from Kenny than that exact same free kick from the middle of the pitch that we have seen 3 times today

    Getting praise from Sky commentators. Think he's had a good game too.

    I’d definitely change shape now to offer some support to Idah....

    But we are bringing on Hourihane. Hmmm.
