    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    Ah, you could be right there sinti. Apologies. I was at the Scotland match so maybe that's part of the reason I didn't go to the Republic match*. Same thing stands in a way though - Scotland steamrollered us 3-0 (at the Aviva) from what I can remember and idiots then got angry. * did we not have fans at it? I think they mentioned that on commentary last night.

    By the way, our internet is a bit dodgy and so I missed Jones' chance as it went down for a couple of minutes. I am assuming Lafferty also came on at around the same time?!? although I didn't notice he was on until nearly the end of the match. Was the Guinness clouding my vision or did he not really do anything?

    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    Dead on. You have again missed the point that I would have been delighted to win, but that maybe in the longer term it was better for some of the meatheads in our support (or theirs) to have neither nothing to crow about or get upset about. Do you not remember the 5-0 drubbing last time out, which, when I thought things couldn't get any worse, then got a whole lot worse as footage from our fans acting the maggot got out, from YouTube to all over the front pages? And wasn't this around the time there were some (thankfully it turns out) like McClean jumping ship and using our wholly unjustified reputation as reasoning? If we had bate them 3-0 last night (which we could easily have done) then I can see that such behaviour could have been repeated. Anyway, I apologise for saying you sounded like a wab (I hadn't fully woken up at that stage so I wasn't in the mood for being "[happy clappy or hugging trees]"). Hopefully after we win and they lose in our next Nations League games then this game will be forgotten about, never to return.

    I (and maybe you?!?) was referring to the BBC national news segment on the match which had obviously been pre-prepared. They must have been creaming themselves that the match ended up in a "deadlock" 0-0. I agree we shouldn't be playing them due to player poaching.

    Calm down. You sound like a wab. My point being that the press would jump on anything and twist it. So as much as I'd have liked to wallop them I'm happy enough to take a 0-0 in which we were much superior rather than hump them and then have some "supporters" get carried away and sing songs that end up on YouTube. This was also much better than us being humped 5-0 and the same happening (like last time). I would be delighted to gloat, but I (and no doubt you) would be able to behave myself in doing so and not end up in the news... It ended up a much more positive experience than I was expecting. As for that fleg, is that not a badly drawn Leinster crest in the top right corner?

    As much as I'm a bit gutted we didn't wallop them, it's probably for the best as it doesn't give any of the wabs in the support of either team the chance to gloat at a win or get frustrated and angry at a loss. Either way we'd have been the bad boys in the press. It even suited the national news Irish boarder Brexit deadlock so everybody happy...

    Loving the blur puns. I'd like to Seymour of them

    Yes, I'm aware of that. (I'm also aware that he has said a lot of positive things about us and continues to do so when he's being a Sky pundit.) I'm prepared to give him a bye ball on the Cliftonville q&a as I know he suffers from depression and that can alter the way you view things. I don't necessarily think he was playing to the crowd. He can come across as a bit of a wab, but like somebody pointed out earlier on, those fans who hate him would love it if he was acting in the exact same way for their club. To me his reactions seem harmless enough and mildly entertaining. Anyway, it's all speculation on my part as I've never met the guy.

    Yes, I'm not looking forward to this, or the aftermath, although I am looking forward to beating them (which I believe we will). Regarding Lennon, am I blind or is he not as big a dick as everyone paints him out to be? He's obviously no angel, but I don't get the hatred towards him.

    There's also this at the end which really has nothing to do with what the PFAI were talking about. Also, the way it is written, you'd think Lennon was constantly getting death threats whilst playing for NI. Not that I'm playing down his death threats by the way.

    Stephen, I think you mean "like Roy Carroll's "save" from the halfway line at Old Trafford for example ?"

    I hope so as if the Austrians get anything that night we are relegated. It would be pretty crap to be relegated at the same time as having a bad night in Dublin.

    Post Mortem

    That's my understanding of it too, along with the winner of the knockout in the top league being crowned the Nations League Champion?!?

    Post Mortem

    I'm not quite sure I fully understand the workings of the competition, but from what I've gathered I'm a ) not the only one and b ) like you said a lot of people seem to have absolutely no idea and think that it's just friendlies. I thought it was strange that Michael said in a post match interview that he wasn't bothered about this group and it was useful preparation for the qualifying which begins in March. It made it sound like he didn't know what it was all about either. I'm sure he does but I'd maybe using the approach that if we've got to bomb in a group it's better to do it now (whilst bedding in new players) than in qualification proper. Didn't Martin O'Neill admit he didn't understand the Nation's League?

    Team Formation v Austria

    At first glance I thought that was one of Clint's teams until I realised you'd just left the hyphen out of our goalie's name...

    UEFA considering international leagues

    Makes our result against them seem better. I feel like I should have written "Switzerland bate Iceland 6 (six) - 0".

    I've just seen that Switzerland bate Iceland 6-0. What happened there?

    The commentator must have heard me - groin injury.

    Where's big Josh? Not in the squad...

    Score Prediction v Panama

    I would have no idea what the score will be as I have absolutely no idea how good Panama are. I could probably hazard a better guess though than the IFA can in regards to kick off. Not for the first time the website countdown to kick off clock is not even close to being right. 25 hours out this time. Although to be fair this time they'd have you getting up early for it as opposed to going by their click and finding out you'd missed the whole thing. I guess that's progress.
