    Thought they were better than Wales and done good work in the opposition half but toothless in front of goal.

    Molumby, Stevens and Duffy played well, rest of the team weren't really involved. Molumby looked bright and like he wanted to get things going but Hendrick never really got into the game or McClean or Brady.

    Duffy done well from every set peice into either box and Enda Stevens who I never really noticed before looked MOTM to me, was tidy on the ball and the only defender who really was trying forward passes into midfield and he pulled them off. Harry Wilson never got a sniff against him either.

    I didnt think it was that bad a game for a 0-0 with hardly an attempt on goal, it was a tactical battle where both teams sat back and allowed the others defence space and time and forced them to play risky balls into midfield and tried to win them and counter although it never really worked from either team. Both teams refused to go long as well so there was constant risky play and you felt someone would make a mistake and get robbed but it never happened.

    The first yellow was even more ridiculous.

    International s should be postponed,having players criss-cross ing the continent right now is madness

    The upside is not having to watch Ireland at the minute

    Celtic are doing enough damage to me blood pressure

    Playing a tad better here today although I'm not that bothered anymore lol. Here's hoping for an injury to Mr Kamara.

    The only plus is that Duffy hasn't been injured ahead of Sunday

    That pretty much sums things up. Thankfully this international window is finally over.

    Ireland's biggest problem is lack of a goalscorer since Robbie Keane retired
