  1. Starting XI v South Korea

    Haven't seen injury updates or anything but I'd go with: McGovern (Carson in second half) McLoughlin Hughes (replace at HT) Evans Lewis Davis (captain) Saville McGinn Dallas Lafferty Boyce But might also be good to drop the likes of Evans, Hughes etc. and try some unknowns but I think we'll be all out for the win here. Looking forward to see Saville again - thought he was excellent v. Cheatzerland away.
  2. South Korea Match Predictions

    Half ate? It was half ten actually, not half ate, unless the time difference changes on the Lisburn till Donaghadee bypass and I was none the wiser as I'd me neck chewing a pastie bap. Is yer man Son from Tottingham playing or not? Quare job marking him if yer no Aaron Hughes. Be tempted till stick Saville on him - he would fix him.
  3. South Korea Match Predictions

    I'll show ye two real life photos I took. Tell me which one ye'd ate, I won't give away which is which, BUT one is from NORTHERN Ireland, the other is from SOUTHERN Korea. One has dog in it. The other doesn't. I ate both but still have my favourite:
  4. Central America tour

    I suggest we all buy green and white Panama hats and sail down the canal with a carryout pretending it's the Lagan. Most exciting away tour in years, missed the 2004 one so I know I will regret it if I miss this one.
  5. The Bosnia Herzegovina goalkeeper in horrendous, always making errors. He had about 5 matches at AFC Bournemouth in 2007 and cost us about 15 points with blunders. Brighton home and Carlisle home he was atrocious. Did the same again in his second spell especially v. West Ham. So we shouldn't have any trouble scoring against them if Begovic does nets.
  6. South Korea

    Why do we call them North Korea and South Korea instead of Northern Korea and Southern Korea? Our name is Northern Ireland not North Ireland. Can we not at least have some consistency here? The Republic of Ireland v. The Democratic People's Republic of Korea also sounds ridiculous. Should they add the "ern" or should we lose ours?
  7. Central America tour

    Wouldn't you love it if we bate them away and then they go till England and smash them at Elland Road 3-0.
  8. Central America tour

    Was only about 80 p so it was. You'll all be eating them in May - June. Although in fairness, I hope the team get better grub!
  9. March Friendlies?

    How many do South Korea take away? Will it be tough to get a ticket in the home end? If we give them an allocation of 10% I reckon we'll all end up buying away zone tickets our contact from Jimmy Hong Kim in Ballyclare. I hope I am not the SEOUL person in the away end as I don;t know how they will react to our SONGs. What are the odds of Niall McGinn scoring a hat-trick?
  10. March Friendlies?

    We've never played either South or North Korea. Off the top of my head the only Asian teams we have ever played are: Thailand (A) 1997 - 0-0 - Roy Carroll's debut (we were supposed to play Philippines or Indonesia on that tour but the second game fell through) Qatar (A / N) 2015 - 1-1 Is that it??? I didn't count Australia, New Zealand, Armenia, Soviet Union, Belarus etc. as I don't class them as Asia.
  11. Central America tour

    Some travel photos from those countries: Panama City - New City is full of offices and skyscrapers. Old City is really old actually and I loved it. Full of poky bars, cafes and churches. Had a few local beers - Atlas was the best I think. Panama New City - Penis fountain... Panama Old City - Think we might have to find some Green and White Panama Hats... I remember the buses were a bit nuts - Bars to be raided by the GAWA: Panama Canal - Very touristic and you can see it at Miraflores if you pay entry. I do advise paying entry - you could see it for free too but there is no viewing platform then and the place you pay into is the famous part where you are almost guaranteed to see a ship - think we stayed for 1-2 hours and saw about 5 ships. The Miraflores Locks was the part I went to - COSTA RICA San Jose - Lots of sights and as said I can help organise a GAWA Walking tour of the city through my friend and travel writer there. http://dontstopliving.net/walking-tour-san-jose-costa-rica-top-10-sights/ There's a John Lennon bench and an Anne Frank statue, I also visited the stadium where the match will be played. Good bars in the city - will dig out the name of this football bar I went to - very welcoming - Wildlife and villages:
  12. Central America tour

    Yes Ealing Green, I myself flew into Panama from Bogota and it was cheap. There is even an airline - I think it is COPA that give you 24 hours in Panama with a connection on to Mexico City after that. And overlanding from Panama to Colombia is a no go if you are not used to spending weeks in the jungle of the Darian Gap - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darién_Gap
  13. Central America tour

    I agree with the Laird - keep the money within Northern Ireland. I tend to travel alone and not use foreign tour companies unless I am working with them - however in Costa Rica - San Jose my friend Michael Miller can give you an EXCELLENT 3-4 hour city tour for a good price. I can even organise him to give the GAWA a city tour of San Jose if you like? He's a travel writer and published author from San Jose. If anyone is keen on this let me know and I'll put him in touch with prices, timings and group sizes etc. The tour will of course be in English, not Spanish!! I'm still not 100% sure I'm going on this trip, but we all know these things only happen once in a lifetime...
  14. Central America tour

    Costa Rica, as you say "make a big push on tourism". For me that's money orientated only and gives me even more reason to favour the others ahead of it. Countries that don't make a push for tourism are normally the better ones to visit, more raw and real and not just after tourist dollars. I much preferred the rawness of El Salvador and Honduras but we don't play them two. In terms of safety, mostly media hype. I spent two nights in what is often dubbed "the most dangerous city in the world" and it was nicer than Costa Rica's San Jose! Closer to the time, I guess we will discuss the countries more, though the wildlife in Costa Rica was good. You can see snakes, iguanas and toucans there.
