He strikes me as the kind of person who would relish it.

I see a few people criticising O'Shea for making the most of Ronaldo raising his hands to him. I applaud him for it. It's about time we became more cynical.

Pity Ronaldo could have taken a machete out of his shorts and slashed him without getting booked by that clown of a referee.

He should have went down holding his shoulder where he got hit. VAR didn't go to it I think because O'Shea made a meal out of it by holding his face. 
A Punch in the shoulder then would have still been a sending off offence
This incident tells me we a but naive \ too nice. If that was Pepe getting a slap the Portugese would have been all the ref and made bloody sure VAR was checked - O'shea could have pushed Ronaldo back and then a couple of others got invovled in handbags.

No not for me. As gutted as i was about the other night there was nothing in it. Ronaldo barely touched him and i for one do not want one of our players faking injury to get someone else sent off. I don't care what other people say. He went down holding his face which was embarrasing. Lets be honest if one of our players were sent off for what ronaldo did we would be livid and rightly so.

I agree with this.
Was shameful to go down holding his face and I don't care who else does it.

Having said that, the ref should have looked at the incident as it was still a swing, regardless of the reaction.

Enjoyed an interview RTE ran with him just now. His commitment had been questioned in the past but based on what he has just had to say that suggestion can be binned. Seems a good lad and a smart fella too. Talks honestly Thumbs Up

Agree. 

I couldn't warm to him before as there seemed to be something off about him. He was very good yesterday and pretty self deprecating in fairness to him. 

He did his performance against the Danes was one of his best. I know he scored but he forgot to mention he was at fault for their goal LOL

This lad drives me mad. Thought from the very first minute he didn't look the slightest bit interested, was reluctant to make runs, rarely crossed the ball, it got to a point that Coleman lost frustration with him and ended up coming out of the back 3 to go and do his job for him.

We finally get a good game out of last Wednesday and straight away he reverts back to type. If he's not arsed do everyone a favour and feck off. 
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes an even bigger man to laugh at that man.

Why the fook didn't Kenny stick with him on the left? Him and Coleman don't work well together on the right. Same with McClean and Horgan on the left.

Yeah I would have left the back five as finished from Wednesday. 

I did think Coleman had a worse game than Doherty yesterday.  Also parrot or Molumby should have been over there supporting the two of them working combinations and triangles etc but neither did in the first half.  The left side seemed better with Egan and McClean Cullen and Connolly but it still wasn’t great.

I think the idea was for mcclean to get down the line and crosses in, which he got into position many times he just was not good enough to execute it on match day. 
If we had a right winger who could do the same on the other side then maybe he would have left doherty over there and Mcclean on the bench. So it was done with an attacking mindset.

However, I would have left Doherty there myself. He can bring the ball forward well. Linked well with Connolly who plays on that side. I think Kenny'a trust in McClean ultimately failed

Turning in to a bit of a leader at this point. Ridiculous it took so long to get him and Seamie in the same side. 

Strong endorsement of Kenny and the whole setup in his interview tonight as well

I think playing him on the left and Coleman on the right against Portugal looked excellent.

That should be first choice.

I didn't think he had a good game at all, why did he keep tucking in when we're playing with 3 cb's, looked pedestrian at times, as if he wasn't interested...... 
Maybe it's just me...... Expected more from him tonight....

Have to say I thought he was our best player out of this batch of games. Very confident/calm on the ball and rarely loses possession. Never seems to sprint but often glides past players like they’re not there. Quality footballer who needs to get out of spurs at the minute.

Himself, Hendrick and Duffy as our senior players were good over the three games. If only we had a more senior striker that was some what useful.
