NI equalise with 3 mins to go then hit the post!

Extra time.

Jocks take off their strikers then concede in final minute. Ouch! Extra time.

What has happened to the heady days of the ROI we once knew when neutrals admired their play in the Euro/WC tournaments many moons ago?

They are simply dreadful

Big Jack was the catalyst.

But a bigger issue is imo the amount of poor overseas players right through the leagues, it is choking out so much home nations talent.

Paddy McNair looks down and out so Dallas moved back RB where the night began.

Dallas is easily the highest rated player (7.4) of the NI squad on the BBC site

John Delaney happened. Irish football has been run into the ground. Third sport also behind Hurling and Gaelic Football. But there’s potential for us to become a decent side in the next few years. We haven’t produced a top level player in a long time, the talent gets sucked up by other sports and our league isn’t up to standard to nurture the talent we do have and players go to academies in England and now clubs throw their net future a field for academy players, less Irish players come through.
The standard of player we have is poor. Doherty, Egan, Connelly it’s hard to name many decent players in the side. Bamford made a great decision not to play for Ireland and concentrate on Leeds, I never fancied him playing for Ireland I’d say his baby toe might be Irish :lol: but goes to show how short we are on players that they are actively seeking players, 2-3 years at least before we see a decent Irish team

I didn't see the last game. Couldnt get TV coverage. But like that Southgate went a little more attacking in midfield. Remains to be seen if he'll do it against Belgium. No doubt he'll go to 5 at the back and 2 DMC's again.
We've been through it all together. And we've had our ups and downs

We do not know yet the cost of this last international break. Normally the way we learn is when the team for a game is announced and someone is missing and the fans ask “ where is >> players name<<“ and it emerges that he was a casualty of the internationals, this has been too common for this club in the last few international windows. There was a time when if a player was not picked for England,Scotland, Wales, Northern or Southern Ireland he would not be on international duty. For Leeds it was not until 1992 when we had our first “foreign” international when France selected Cantona and France became the 6th country to cap a Leeds player. Since then another 27 countries have given Leeds players a cap. I think the current running total is 33 counties have awarded 1561 caps to 141 Leeds players.

To cram in international games in an already crammed fixture list is not in the best interest of Leeds or any other club. Koch and Dallas both played 3 full games. Luckily Klich was given a game off and Cooper only played once. With Phillips, Rodrigo and Llorente absent from international duty, hopefully the damage will not be too bad this time around, but I do worry about Dallas as he was subject to a few heavy tackles in his first game.
