    It would be gas if Robbie Keane were the successor, having been paid for nothing for the last while. But he has to be in the frame I think.
    I’m only seeing the league as two games in… M. Tel Aviv at the top after two games… am I missing something?

    Four wins and two draws in the Conference League qualifiers to reach the groups, and two wins in the Toto Cup (seems to be kind of like the League Cup I think, but it's 5-1 and 6-1 against two top flight sides so can't be that bad)

    Full results here.

    browne for molumby perhaps the only slight surprise, a reward for his showing in Paris. I'm starting to think he's more effective at rwb for Ireland than midfield but good luck to him.

    curious to see how Cullen gets on as he seems to have gone a touch backwards in the last year.

    Is Browne the new David Meyler? A Cork midfielder who can play RB for Ireland.

    I’m not sure about Idah

    if Mick was still manager would his selection be that different? For all the progressive hype from Kenny, his selections have become increasingly regressive.

    I’m not sure what the progressive alternative is, given the (lack of) depth of quality and experience at his disposal today??

    I’m surprised by Browne for Molumby in this game. Maybe Doherty at LWB and O’Shea or Omobamidele at RWB but it’s kind of splitting hairs a bit as they’re not truly players at that position.

    Coverage delayed because of Golf?? Sums up Kenny’s reign.

    2 wingback s who just don't have the legs anymore to attack and get back like modern wingback tonight was the night for ebosele and ogbene or manning as wingback. Smallbone needed to play in midfield the only player we have who could possibly keep us tick9ng over with incisive passing in an attempt to create a chance. Hoping back to Duffy just sends out all the wrong messages no chance of progressive passing from the back. Still if we get the win we are still in with a great chance to finish second

    I just don’t think you can start Ebosele and Manning in a game like this. Ebosele was pretty bad the other night, poor on the ball and a bit all over the place. Manning is not mobile. Mostly with the two of them, experience is lacking - to start them tonight against a team as strong out wide as the Dutch would be setting them up to fail.

    Not a huge fan of the Duffy selection tonight or against France but more so because I don’t understand how he goes from completely out of the squad and 5/6th choice to one of the starting 3. The logic behind that is a bit amiss. He does toughen us up a lot though, give us a bit more strength and leadership back there.

    Anyway, here we go! COYBIG!

    Yup. But let him off with the peno!

    Couldn't have asked for a better start. Lively and the Dutch are jittery
