    There is no such thing as a miracle cure, a free lunch or a humble opinion.

    Entertaining game is right. Ireland's extra man in the forwards is clear when we attack. Luxembourg's extra man in midfield is clear sometimes too. I can see a goal for us before half time. Even if it is from a corner. One point re Cullen- his corners are always lovely.

    Surely anything but a win today will mean the end of Stephen Kenny though, no?

    No sound in the local but Sadlier & Brady looked animated in the pre match chit chat. I’d say RTÉ will stick with them as pundits to stir things up.

    Nah wouldn’t think so.

    That angle for the Bazunu save. Wow.

    Ah, yeah. Collins was milking it for all it was worth. He got it going before the match and he'll undoubtedly stir it up after. Entertaining viewing but a little thin on tactics the pre match analysis was.

    Stunning save. Absolutely world class. That's the problem we have with this formation though, there's always a risk of leaving that space for a shot from the middle. Some good probing possession and pressing, there's definitely goals in this.

    That Gerson is the most annoying player I have watched in a while. Between the persistent calls for a card and the swinging of the leg.

    Good game of ball to be honest.. Ogbene playing well, but also showing the difference betwee being a Prem/Championship winger and a league 1 one.. end product poor quality

    We should have had a peno too.. Idah was bundled over

    We should be ahead based on the play so far. There is no lack of effort from the players. I think the doubters can have their opinions on Kenny but having the players with the manager is a huge plus.

    We've had some really good balls into the box. Unfortunately Idah is not having a great game and his confidence is low so he's not getting into the natural goal scoring positions. Very open game.

    I think we're lucky not to be one down. That Bazunu save was something else.

    Definitely an open game.. some poor decision making by Robinson, trying a bit too hard.. but there are goals here

    Better team. Solid performance thus far. Bazunu with one super save and good distribution. Duffy solid in defense, has given the ball away 3 times cheaply….not a long term fixture in a Kenny team once Collins and big Andy come through next year. Midfield ok. McClean, one good cross apart, is playing on borrowed time. Idah lost, needs Jan loan unless Dean Smith fancies him with two up top. Ogbene continues to pleasantly surprise me, hopefully he can engineer a move out of league one in January. Robinson poor, no club form coming into it - he can’t live off his recent surprising goal rush forever - has translated into him taking too much out of the ball every time

    Would even consider putting Keane on to replace himAt least he’s match fit and sharp, and this lot are about League 1 standard.

    Fair bit to be positive about, but the usual problems in front of goal for now.

    This is how a tough 2-0 win looks like, or a 1-0 defeat. Luxembourg growing into it as the game has gone on, but still second best.

    Definitely better than the equivalent in Dublin, but we need a chance or two. Ogbene is a live wire but his end product has been poor so far. McClean snatching at that shot from the edge of the box has been typically frustrating. Lots of nice crosses and it only takes one of those to be met with a nice header to give us the lead.

    Would have liked their keeper to have done more work, but tentatively it's going ok I think

    Enjoyable half. End to end. Ireland should surely have a goal by now and that was surely a penalty on Idah. I think a goal for us would settle us down well.

    Idah looks off it. I don't think it's a game that suits him. The game is so Helter skelter and doesn't owe itself to an out and out centre forward. I can see Robinson moving centrally and maybe Parrott coming in off the left. I think that might help us pick of some of these chances that are presenting themselves.

    He really needs to work that end product out. We are getting torn up through the muddle every time they break our press. Ogbene needs to work harder on his recovery runs when they break out on us. Overall doing well I think. Such a save from bazunu, I love kelleher but it's going to be very tough for him to get in
