    Didi waffling on about how the FAI should have stepped in and blocked Kenny from being allowed call up Andy Moran this window.

    Whatever about whether Moran should have stayed with the U21s (think he should have stayed for last night's match at least), but banging on about how the FAI should have a say on player selections is crazy.

    Bit pointless to be in Norway yesterday and in Holland today, no?

    Agree the FAI shouldn't (and obviously didn't) be interfering in those matters

    The point was that a director of football should be looking at the overall picture for irish football and saying this campaign is gone but the 31s and the 19s is very much al8ve so better to have moran do everything he can to help the 21s and Murphy should then stay with the 19s and help them qualify

    Irish players clash with each other on two occasions in the space of one minute. Keystone Cops.

    That start sums up the Kenny era in so many ways. Really comfortable start. Arguably the better team, then a completely terrible mistake gifts them a chance and they bury it.

    Is it? I think we're playing ok - given it's Holland away

    Good early chance; still getting forward a bit. Couldn't say that about the France game

    Holland's shooting is a bit wayward but I think it's half decent so far. Goal was obviously messing as noted

    France 7-0 and a man up at halftime. God knows what the Gibraltar halftime talk is. They scored two own goals in the first five minutes

    The last 10 minutes went into a bit of a self destructive meltdown alright. Some absolutely woeful individual errors. Sort of triggered by Knight trying to turn inside without knowing the Dutch player was there.

    Collins is an utterly woefull footballer and has somehow managed to steal a way into an english premier league squad.
    These players have no incentive to improve as they continue to get picked irrespective of how $h1t they clearly are

    Really missing genuine pace to trouble the Dutch: Ogbene in particular, Obafemi, Ebosele

    Scales has been good. Big recurring issue for me is how often theres a player making a good and he doesn’t receive the pass, instead a more conservative pass is made

    I know the Dutch are a good team but this is a hard watch. There’s absolutely nothing about us at all. Can’t even get a foot on the ball.

    Yep. The alternative is Duffy, and there'd be complaints about him starting too

    First 10 second half was just a continuation of last 10 first half. Couldn’t get near them. The offside goal from Idah seemed to at least restore a bit of confidence and it has been better since.

    Need to make changes in midfield. I’d do all of Browne, Cullen and Knight for Moran, Molumby and Johnston

    12-0 France now

    I think Germany 13-0 San Marino is the record for a qualifier in Europe? (Euros or World Cup)
