Maybe it was our shared dejection, and maybe we just needed to lash out – but a lot of people were SERIOUSLY pissed off with the Dunphy and Giles analysis on RTÉ after the match.
In particular, their fixation on John O'Shea came under fire...
Can't help but think Dunphy, Brady and Giles have failed to capture the mood of the nation

Dunphy and Giles looking for a scapegoat. Rte need to freshen up for big games #COYBIG

@RTEsoccer will ye ever tell Dunphy and Giles to piss off! ????

Very negative from Giles, Dunphy and co. Give the lads credit. If we got whipped 3-0 would they be this critical?

And when Richie Sadlier tweeted that he and Didi Hamann would be "taking over" for the next match, the reaction said it all...
