I wait with much in trepidation for the match this evening. Will we do it? My heart says yes but my head says no. We are without our two best players, Roy Keane and Damien Duff. I thought from the start that Kerr was not the correct choice as manager, as Roy Curtis said "He's more conservative than Thatcher"
There is nothing we can do about that now but the simple fact remains that our squad is not as strong as it once was. The players are just not there and if we play the way we played the last match we will be kicked out of the match after 20 minutes.
We should have already qualified because we should have beaten the Israelis on both occasions and on both occasions the manager got his tactics wrong.
Here's hoping we can do it tonight because all we have is hope
