    Score Prediction v Rep of Ireland

    ROI 1-0 NI We will play them off the park, but concede late on. Probably to James McClean knowing our luck at the moment.

    Best and worst - Sarajevo

    Best Sarajevo as a destination - fantastic city and I will be back The locals being so friendly, welcoming, and genuinely appreciative that we were there Flights from Vienna via Belgrade going without a hitch The march to the stadium with the Robocops who (eventually) relaxed The atmosphere before, during and after the match Removing (some) of my ignorance around the region's troubled history Our hotel being a bit of a hidden gem, despite being at the top of a big arse hill The positives from the performance, despite the result - thought Boycey put in a huge shift for us and showed his value The weather adding to a great experience of Sarajevo Views from the cable car Walking tour of the city which hit a lot of key sites - very fascinating Some really good food, and some really quirky bars Train from Sarajevo to Mostar - very scenic Mostar being a stunner of a place, albeit we didn't have too much time to explore Worst Struggling to find anything - minor hiccup with the four pickpockets who mingled with the GAWA on the march back from the ground. Thankfully I think they were rumbled before they could do anything more. Our group saw the same group of four guys making moves on tourists the next day at the train station too. Access to the stadium - bit of a nightmare, as in Vienna Srebrenica Memorial Gallery with a hangover - being a 90s kid I was largely ignorant to the scale and brutality of what occurred in this region when I was a kid. It was a stunning collection of photographs and a fitting memorial in many ways, but some of it was really hard to digest.

    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    I'll be going, and potentially with a Republic supporting mate (parting ways at the stadium entrance obviously!).

    Israel (H) friendly - Sept 11

    IMO he's the long-term replacement to Davis. A different player admittedly, but has a lot of similar core attributes.

    Israel (H) friendly - Sept 11

    The take away from last night for me is that we have a few young players coming through who are confident going forward and can play a bit. Thought McNair was very good, particularly with crosses and set pieces - though he is not a RB, he needs to be in the midfield. Lewis and Saville will be in the XI for many years to come. Jones was a bit iffy. Gavin Whyte - again, confident on the ball and wanting to go forward and be direct. No doubt he will feature heavily for us over the next few years. Couple that with the 21s winning away to Spain (their best ever result?!), the future is f**king bright! We could do with a young CB and a young out and out striker (Smyth?) though.

    Starting XI v Israel

    I understand the attachment to big Laff, but Boyce did more in 20 minutes yesterday than Laff did for the other 70.

    Bosnia. And Herzegovina too. What are they like?

    Do you Google the census data for all of our upcoming opponents? Bizarre (to be polite) mindset to have.

    Israel (H) friendly - Sept 11

    All part of the general erasing/re-writing of the past, of which SF/IRA are the undisputed masters.
