    Very disappointing performance, team was in good form and had just frustrated a more talented French side. But to be blown away like that in the 1st half is really poor. TBF we didn't do much wrong until we conceded the first goal, the Dutch had a clear height advantage and looked threatening every time they had a corner. The way we were torn apart for the 2nd and 3rd goals was simply not good enough for this level. 

    That just about buries any chance of direct qualification we have. The Dutch have a game in hand on us too and own the H2H (we would have to beat them 3-0 in Greece for other tie-breakers to come into calculations) so they are basically 4 points clear of us with the game in hand too. We also have to play France again. 

    We have to win our last 4 to have any hope, and even then it's out of our hands. If the Dutch win 4 of their last 5 they would qualify ahead of us. 

    Off to the play-offs we go! Let's hope the squad can have a strong finish and hit the play-offs in March with plenty of confidence. 

    Disappointing performance the way Poyet set up the team and we were clearly lacking at the back missing Mavropanos & Baldock. Also our midfield was over matched. Losing the match hurts but by 3 nil for head to head tiebreaker and it should have been more if not for Vlachodimos. This all coming off such a positive gutsy performance in France. I hope Poyet gets the selection right especially next month when we travel to Ireland and home to Holland. We’re going to need the Irish to get a result today and we will need to beat Holland.

    This was bound to happen, most of us have been disappointed on some (not all) of the call-ups but were proven wrong.  Today, we were proven right. It's not the loss that hurts, it's how we lost. 

    I was expecting a tight game even possibly a draw vs a Dutch side which has been struggling and missing Depay up front. Instead we saw Greece put up no fight and we looked clueless in defence which we have not seen in years.

    Our only hope is now that Netherlands somehow drops points in Ireland and we beat Gibraltar so we stay ahead of them. Best case scenario now is we face Netherlands at home either up a point or tied. If that doesn’t happen then on to the nations league for a 2nd chance.. Just so disappointed how this team played i don’t know what to make of it. Was it just a bad night or is this the real reality of this team? 

    Yes we need Ireland to get a draw but that looks like a tall task. Missing Mavropanos and Baldock was a huge blow. Also Fortounis can’t have a spot on this team? The midfield play was atrocious.

    Good to see us lose to the Netherlands by the same margin that Gibraltar did.. What a f***ing embarrassment.. Im not even upset that we lost this game if it was a competitive game but to be losing 3 nothing by the 30 minute mark is absolutely disgusting… The biggest game for this team and that’s how we come out… This reminds me of the Croatia game in the playoffs under Skibbe.. No words..

    Disgraceful! Worst performance since a 3 nil loss to Italy in a euro qualifier under coach Ange!
