From independent.ie"At the moment maybe it's better to have Cox than others."Why? McLean is a regular in a mid-table Premier league side.Cox's not a winger, and plays for C'ship Forest. Keogh is also not a winger and has never really cut it."we have the team that played in Kazakhstan"...."we played better yesterday than we did in Kazakhstan"Does the man even listen to himself?
@10 I'd be complaining too if i was a young player whose established a place in a prem team and yet was still surplus to requirements at international level to a team that would rather play the likes of Whelan ahead of meGood point, Kazakhstan aren't classed as a 'top quality' side but still managed to make the ROI sweat for 86 odd minutes, and leaving out players like McLean will deter progress

(Continued) in Brady. Wish him well but Back Page Pundits will be clamoring for inclusion. England were almost at full strength and look how they were outplayed..Wait for the ROI-Faroes game and see where expectations rocket...Teams will frustrate and thwart...I don't like Trap's style of play....but a win's a win!
Is there a crisis in Sweden after their 2-0 home victory over Kazakhs last night? The Irish game on friday was terrible. Any worse or clueless than previous performances against Lichtenstein, or San Marino, or Cyprus (home and away)...or other "minnows".? A team of Premier league reserves/subs, and Championship regulars, and expect to steamroll opposition. Now a new "Great white hope" appears!
I really think that Trap is losing the plot. Ireland are no world beaters, we all know that, but we should be playing a lot better than we are. Trap is just too stubborn. The amount of players that are left out that should be playing is infuriating. Coleman, Clark, Long, McClean, Gibson and Wilson all play regularly in the Premiership. Yet Whelan, Green, Andrews, St Ledger and Ward get the games!
So proud to see Oman playing at European team. They are not a terrible team having recently beaten Australia in a World Cup qualifier. They certainly found the high ball hard to deal with leading to all 4 goals. They will improve and are in a good position to get to Rio.They didn't play well on the night but hopefully they will learn from last night's experience.
"Trapattoni is an quality coach and players like McLean really need to sort out their awful attitude and show some respect. He's an average player and should not get above his stations."Hes an average player representing an average national team.Playing a friendly agains a nation as poor as Oman instead of a nation equal or better than R.O.I would surely benefit the youngsters more.
it would be nice if they could beat a half good team, why do they waste their time thrashing minnows? you only get better playing teams who are better than you
well done Ireland but dont let it hide the serious problems you have to sort out before the next competitive game.
