I think Trappatoni deserves it, even if his tactics can make running away and hiding in a cupboard/press seem positively aggressive.


that's the Irish for you.

Bring them on! We fear no one.

By fearing no one I mean we're going to take an early lead then deteriorate and then hold on for the final thirty minutes making every fan sweat their body weight.

FAI Cup final today. First time all year I've been able to get to a match, should be fun (not sure how effective we are when overwhelming favourites however.) Then the play offs next week, exciting times.

Well the excitement about this game is absolutely none-existent. Maybe Ireland should wear a shamrock or something controversial for the media to talk about. But in the game where this happened in the draw.

<FIFA House> "Ireland will play Estonia"

<FAI HQ> "Yay! They are a bit crap, we might beat them"
<Estonian FA HQ> "Yay! They are a bit crap, we might beat them"

Its probably going to be the most exciting game, since Scotland turned up for a kickabout in Tallinn in '96. Let's just hope its as one-sided.

I'm going for Ireland 1 - Estonia 0. With both teams sitting comfortably in their own half and hardly ever attacking.

It is an astonishingly downbeat build-up, perhaps indicative of the general apathy toward international football at present, rather than because of the turgid football that is likely to develop. (although Bosnia -Portugal could be worth catching)

but to hell with that attitude, i've a good week's work behind me with nothing particularly taxing on the horizon next week, i'm heading to a mate's wedding tomorrow which will be a long lazy day of food, drink, dance and drivel, i'm getting beers on the way home to exercise the liver, and there's footy on TV instead of the usual Friday nite shite. what's not to enjoy?

COME ON TRAP'S BOYS - GET THAT CAT IN THE SACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Its 4 ties of mouse-like proportions.

Bosnia vs. Portugal. Well I don't know if they are nice lads off the pitch, but I'm behind the Bosnians because watching Ronaldo and Nani passing to each other and rolling around on the floor has to be wrong.

Turkey vs. Croatia. Sounds great until you realise both teams are more than a bit crap at the moment.

Czech Republic v Montenegro. Per capita, mighty Montenegro are one of the strongest teams in Europe. Though still crap. The Czech Republic Are also a bit crap. But I expect this to be a goalfest of dodgy defending.

A fine round-up, suitably scathing of both the football and fancy dans, with excellent re-use of word 'crap'. I expect to see you on RTE's panel soon

Right off to the pub now to start drinking. Its the only proper way to enjoy a game. Eamo will tell you that I really do think there is a 4 pint minimum before you can come out and say Sean St Ledger. Legend!

Wonderfully mediocre half of football there between Bosnia and Portugal. Its like they know I'm only using them as a warm up for the Ireland game. Walters in for Ireland.

Elsewhere, Croatia looking good, 2-0 up away from home at Turkey.

I can't help wondering if UEFA have ever thought about going all X-Factor on this. And putting together the players who didn't make it in a team together.

This match will set the world record for amount of time the ball was in the air during a game.

Ireland have come for the win! Which can only mean one thing, valiant and heroic failure

When was the last time Ireland qualified for the Euros? I bet half the countries in Europe didn't even exist then

EDIT: 1-0

Turkey 3-0 down, does that mean Hiddink is crap now? I'm just saying Spurs, give up on trying to keep Harry and line Guus up.

EDIT: How is that not another red


EDIT: Pen....yes definitely a free kick that

GOAL PIE ALL DOWN THEIR SHIRTS

Wow. I didn't think I'd see a better 'tache than Walters's today, then Keith Fahey came on.

"What are keepie-uppies, then?"

Classic, Billo!


Why do I keep getting visions of a devastating 0-5 defeat?

Good to get a goal first half.

Atmosphere is really good at Lansdowne

Whelan is immense out there. Like Roy Keane and Xavi rolled into one.

With his 'tache he also looks like a ginger Carey Elwes.

A true renaissance man.
