    We were chasing the game after the jammy opening goal from the Danes - and that left us open to the counter.

    Ireland should have a combined team, like we have in rugby.

    Yeah, they targeted Cyrus Christie from the off. Was shades of Ireland v Italy in 1994 where I thought "Crap, we took the lead too early." Only back then we had Roy Keane, Ronnie Whelan, Ray Houghton, Paul McGrath, etc. Himself and James McClean are willing, but SO far away from international level, it's not funny.

    Team needs a massive overhaul - too many players the wrong side of 30 and will likely be hanging up their boots soon. But absolutely no quality coming through - a united Ireland makes sense. (On many levels, mwahahaha)

    I am English and if that had been our fans, there'd have been international outrage, fines, suggestions that the team be thrown out of the comp....

    Anyhoo, with all the busyness in my life (I chucked my job in and am back at Uni becoming a high school science teacher) I clean forgot to skite about my first ever league winners medal...over 40's Div 3 lol.[​IMG]
