A classic case of agree to disagree
One of the reasons the Czechs had so much possession was the failure of the Irish midfield to get close when the opposition had the ball. Whelan was the only player who seemed to continually close down while Andrews always seemed to be marking space and letting the Czech have time and space on the ball. You just cant afford to do that against good teams. Also, I feel Whelan kept the ball moving a lot quicker than Andrews, who seemed to want too many touches. However, I'll give you the fact that closing down from Andrews set up the goal. It was surprising (and good) to see him close down so far up the pitch. But it did make me me wonder why he waited 85mins to do it!
Some positives though, like Mccleans debut, a decent enough centre back show in the absence of Dunne and not a lot of chances conceded bar the mistake for the goal. Fearful and hopeful for the Euros and as you say, despite some reservations...."In Trap we trust"
The worst case scenario is that Trap's system does get shown up and we get a hate campaign against him in the media which will fuel calls for him to resign. Such a situation would paint the country, it's fans, as ungrateful for what he has done for the team (rekindled a team spirit, qualified the team for a major finals, defensive shape). Who might we get to replace him and where'll the anti-Trap brigade be if that manager turns out to be a dud? Probably nowhere to be found or criticizing the man they previously championed.
