    Ireland would bore the life out of you

    Cannon has been reasonably bright since he's came on though to be fair, offering more than Idah did

    Keeper for Ireland had some good saves but also hardly moved for some of the goals/shots. Not really sold on him.

    How do you think Republic will do in next European Nations League group matches against England, Finland and Greece with first 2 at home against England then Greece and away to Finland.
    Starts on 7th Oct.
    There is good news though.
    They are almost guaranteed a place in Euros 2028 competition proper.

    Based on how talent weak we are particularly in midfield and with creative goal scoring players I would say we will lose all 3 away games and maybe get a win and a draw at home. Best case scenario would be 2-4 and we maybe pip Finland to avoid relegation but more likely we win only 1 or no games and get relegated.

    I think I know why Ireland have been * for years.
    It’s because the Irish FA were bought off by Sepp Blatter after that cheating * Thierry Henry’s handball * Ireland’s chance to compete in the 2010 World Cup.
    They were going to take FIFA to court but took a bribe.
    Players will think they won’t get help from their own fa so why try.

    Would love it if Roy Keane and Thierry Henry were pundits on same match in next World Cup and Keane smashed his face in.

    Typical FAI signing must have been even cheaper than keeping John O'Shea
