    A clean sheet away from home,3 goals ,the first one absolute class finish from good move .some very decent passages of play,restricted the opposition to shots outside the box bar maybe one chance ,well done Kenny and Co an excellent away performance from a squad containing one player playing regularly in the Premier league.

    To argue otherwise is to argue that football is more important than public health. In which case, you need a serious perspective shift
    He had covid twice he has some level of immunity hence he is allowed eat indoors luke the rest of us vaccinated people . In fact in ireland you have to wait 4 weeks after having covid to get first vaccine so he couldn't be double vaccinated by now anyway as he only had covid during the last international window .

    It has already been explained that Callum is in full compliance with current Covid regulations, your opinion is in compliance with the current Liveline herd instinct and has no place in this thread.

    You can like Callum Robinson as a person, acknowledge his actions are incredibly stupid and be aware that he qualifies for a Covid cert under current rules - all at the same time.

    He contracted Covid for a second time in august 2021. The vaccine was available to him long before that and his decision not to get vaccinated back in early summer meant that he was far more likely to contract Covid. Had he been vaccinated in august and not contracted covid, he would have been available in our home game against Azerbaijan, along with the games against Serbia and Portugal. It’s not unreasonable to think if he had played against Azerbaijan, we would have won. It’s not unreasonable to think if he had come on after 88 mins when we were 1-0 against Portugal, that we wouldn’t have conceded. It’s also not unreasonable to imagine the draw against Serbia might have turned to a better result had he been available.

    In both his lack of care for himself and his lack of care for others, he’s shown terrible judgement. Nonetheless his honesty was refreshing and hopefully he’ll reflect on what’s gone on over the past few days and finally books a vax appointment

    I think if Callum learns anything from the last few days it will most likely be that he should be less honest in interviews in future!

    The funny thing about him was he was an illegal player ( didn't qualify for us)for about a year after his debut.
    They changed the rule recently so he is kuscher now

    Yeah, we're not talking about whether he was breaking international travel rules.

    We're talking about how generally stupid he is to go prattling on about "My body my choice", while fools who think the same thing clutter up ICU wards unnecessarily.

    It seems for some people, the idea that he scored two goals in a football match makes up for his attempt - as a relatively public figure - to legitimise this daft viewpoint for others. It doesn't. He deserves every bit of criticism he got

    players rating vs AZ

    CHEERS LADS

    cool it a bit tiny time

    team had patches of footie but not great similar to Serbia away bar the quality of rivals

    ratings

    bazunu 7 clean sheet and a few key interventions a long shot on the woodwork and a few chances he covered well he is improving and after 10 caps we may get stronger and better


    Omobamidele 7 we need a younger defender next to duffy and egan very good as Oshea one of them could play in midfield very easily

    duffy 8 very much improved and revigorated, though I prefer Egan as libero, because of his distribution the sweeper role is better for Duffy plus he had a few chances missed a sitter and another

    Egan 7 very good game very comanding and so cool on the ball to move it around he is the real voice and football sense at the back 3

    Doherty 7 very nice one two toiches and had a chance to scored plus his lob was a sitter that Callum Robinson missed

    Cullen 8 is like Glen Whelan but more mobile he could improve with Jimbo McCarthy next to him

    Hendrick 6 a passenger most of the game, but worked hard, had an hospital pass to McClean put him under pressure. not his best game not the worst ,. James McCarthy can be the player there to lead the line in midfield

    McClean 8 great assist for the first and as he has lost a bit of pace he is very solid in a position he could excel at club level and internationally if he keeps his mouth shut.

    Horgan 6 great assist for the 2nd and was an asset because of his speed of course he could have been better with that killing pass that wont work yesterday for him, bar that great through ball

    Idah 6 same game as usual for Idah he had a few good movements had a chance to score but he must improve, I would play Shane Long if he was called up there kid is in the learning curve

    Robinson 7 he scored a classic goal after McClean pass lovely goal, second was good too!! But too wasteful and sometimes a bit selfish and tried too much when the team was attacking that produced counter attacks .
    Good player but too wasteful for my liking, need to get a bit more serious with his football sense and could be a tremendous player

    mcgrath 7 good touches and passes he needs to get better and could attack carry the ball and defend a joy of player

    ogbene as i said started very poor . raised his game by the end and had a few options 6

    for me MCCLEAN was motm
