    Mate, you're going to end up looking ridiculous here, even UVF Jamie had a laugh at his mistake

    I think it's a badly drawn Munster crest, but ironically it looks like a loyalist painted it.

    I think it is, no point pursuing that one.

    Good to hear and almost regretting not going. 'Largely' is a telling word though 😃

    Very good first half. In Lavery's. Low key to say the least!

    No, they're sh*te, but they really won't want us to beat them

    I think it says a lot that the kind of people I watch NI matches with would generally fall into the more 'sensible', dare I say 'liberal' camps....and I'm f*cked if I can get a sinner amongst them to even go to the pub to watch it....bastards are avoiding it like the plague, whilst a different demographic are all over it 😬 Who else is 'pubbing' it?

    That's the spirit John, wish I shared your optimism...don't know what way to swing right now. I'll say 1-1.

    what's the 'vibe' like?

    Did I see some sort of meltdown on Facebook (tend to avoid it, was a brief jook) about people who had sneakily ordered more tickets than are in their block booking groups, being informed they would only get the exact amount they're entitled to? And to provide the exact names? A few NI headers in the home end, I fear!

    My policy on this game has progressed from 'hiding behind the sofa' to 'might venture into Belfast to watch it'. I know this might be a tedious thing to ask, but who on OWC is heading to the match? (and who might be hitting the pub?)

    That's a very strange thing to do after leaving your bag in a chip van. I hope you have your half and half scarf at the ready Gary!

    Washington missing again is a disappointing/worrying one.

    I've never really got it either, eg otherwise sensible people will discuss him in the same terms as James McClean....no way! It's an Old Firm thing, as Rod has said. Plus....to be brutally honest...some never forgave him for unwittingly exposing some of the scumbags in our own support.

    To be honest mate, as much as the journos can be dicks, I'd save my ire for the wabs who might be planning the 'slip ups'. Ultimately, they are the problem. I hate the fact this game is happening.....usually a NI game is my top priority, nothing else gets in the way...work, family, holidays, anything...but I don't even want to watch this one.

    I take it this information has been emailed to people who expressed an interest? I didn't, hence no contact...but of course I'm wondering what could be done in the case of a change of mind ?

    Squad formation v Bosnia

    Grigg is out?

    Post Mortem

    It wasn't a friendly, and I think you should know that by now. I think the Nations League is a good idea, personally, but it plainly hasn't caught the imagination of the casual football public. Had a couple of conversations tonight with people who had zero idea about what these games mean, what they lead to etc...it's a hard sell because it's quite complicated...however, the idea of playing teams at our level, often, instead of random friendlies is a sound one... Agree with you (VM) about Boyce though...did someone say he's carrying an injury?

    Get some dough on it if you have a strong feeling...bookies must have him around 500-1 at this point. I think a 1-1 is doable.

    Squad v Austria (A) and Bosnia (A)

    I certainly don't have a short memory, I'm angry about this situation precisely because I still consider him a pivotal member of the squad, and would always start him when anywhere near on form....he is letting us down massively here, and I hope there is good reason for it. EDIT: apparently not, if he's self-diagnosing himself with injuries. Imagine not wanting to play for your country and revelling instead in the old-firm cesspool, ffs.

    Have said all along I want nothing to do with it and reckon I'll stick with that, even as temptation will inevitably gnaw away. This isn't aimed at anyone on this thread, but I've only met a few NI 'fans' in the recent past who were dead keen to play the ROI, and to a man they were the kind of supporters I'd cross the street to avoid. I'm imagining almost the entire away end being of that calibre. I can also see the point people have made about going, to try to outweigh that! Was at the 'Omagh' game in '99 and didn't hugely enjoy the experience, except for the result. We had some absolute wabs in attendance that day. Didn't bother with the Celtic Cup thrashing, thankfully!

    How I despise your level-headedness! A win, surely! I'll be ridiculous and say 3-0

    I find the bit in bold astonishing, I don't think he's played better for us!!

    Bosnia. And Herzegovina too. What are they like?
