  1. Central America tour

    We play Panama on a Tuesday, and Costa Rica on a Sunday. With something like a five hour time difference (behind us) I can't see the kick offs being 19:45 our time. Certainly not for the Tuesday match anyway.
  2. South Korea

    Forestside? FFS, you could walk it.
  3. South Korea

    Weren't they just. We've given up driving to the games. The train has taken the strain the last few times.
  4. Central America tour

    Reading that, I get the impression that the Panama game will be some experience for our lads. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/43292551
  5. South Korea

    Well that was enjoyable. A victory over a good team, on a sunny afternoon, with an audacious first goal and a gleeful second. What more could you ask for?
  6. Kim Jung-in, pfffft. They'll be more worried about this lot. Carson McLaughlin Cathcart Evans Lewis Ward Saville Davis Norwood Jones Lafferty Carson, Lewis and Jones all deserve starts. They also deserve to be part of a strong team, so the rest are pretty much what you'd pick for a competitive game. Giving Cathcart a start would presumably help with his recuperation.
  7. Squad v South Korea - new faces

    It made the press too. It seems clear that he qualifies OK.
  8. Squad v South Korea - new faces

    I suppose the questions revolve around Brunt, Smyth, Goss and Grigg. I'd be surprised, and disappointed, if Brunt isn't back in September. Smyth being in the U21's is no surprise. Michael hinted at that all along. He'll be on the plane to Central America. Goss, understandably enough, is probably mulling it over. Fair enough. Fingers crossed he makes the right choice. Grigg, not for the first time, is out because his club has important games. It would be ludicrous of us to call him up under the circs.
  9. Squad v South Korea - new faces

    Peacock-Farrell, Smyth, Lewis, Goss and (hopefully) an as yet unnamed other. Add them to the new boys (Saville and Jones) and it could be a very different looking squad. I doubt they'll all be included mind.
  10. South Korea

    If only Oonagh hadn't left. She'd have had it sold out several times over, and won a prize for it.
  11. You'd have thought he'd have had better things to do on his wedding day than snooping around after you. Like watching the match himself.
  12. South Korea

    The ground will be half empty if you don't take up your first refusal. Is the game on your Ticketmaster account?
  13. Speak for yourself Chopper. I've a yellow streak down my back the width of the M2 (the foreshore bit). That means I'm going to no Bosnia. They're all nuts.
  14. Always look forward to a draw, but I think Michael's contract situation has deflected our attention this time round. Anybody but the Republic will do me.

  16. March Friendlies?

    It's pretty hard to get excited about any friendly. South Korea would be different at least.
  17. March Friendlies?

    They'll probably wait intil the Nation's League draw is done (24 January).
  18. Central America tour

    They've got a good national anthem. If I was footloose and fancy free .................... I took Mrs Clint to the Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton to see us gubbed 2-0, courtesy of a Paul Peshysomethingo brace, on our honeymoon. Twenty odd years later she still hasn't hoofed me out.
  19. My guess would be two BBs. Of course we're dealing with the IFA here, so who knows?
  20. http://www.football-rankings.info/2017/10/official-uefa-nations-league-seeding.html A group of three then. Austria and Sweden would do nicely, though I'll be happy with anybody but the ROI.

  22. Whoever came up with this League of Nations idea should be Knighted. That's probably a good thing. Could you imagine if the winner went to League C, and the loser to League D? Two teams trying to lose a match would be hilarious.
  23. It's definitely open to that kind of abuse.
  24. For every plus there's a minus. No, being in League A does not guarantee you qualification for Euro 2020. The winner of each of the four leagues qualifies, which is bikkies when you look at League D. I'm not sure what the knock on effect is if everybody in League A, bar one, qualifies through the traditional route. Does that team qualify by default?
