    Brian, racism/any form of discrimination should be stamped out wherever it happens the level of racism that we saw in Hungary though was at a shockingingly different level and FIFA have to react as strongly as they possibly can. Let’s wait and see what actions FIFA take.

    For me 9, they make them play all their games away, not at neutral venues, but proper away games as it would be unfair to punish the players by banning the country from competition. It’s very difficult to vet the fans, so unfortunately the decent fans would have to miss out……….Pagan

    Pagan, however they do it there should be a long ban on Hungary being able to play in Hungary across both FIFA and UEFA games. There’s also lots of TV footage of the offender’s they should be trying to identify them and be banning them from all football games for life.

    Sean and Mak, what’s happened to the Irish National side? Bottom of the group and losing at home to Azerbaijan?! Is it just a lack of talent coming through?

    We drew Ed πŸ˜‚

    The manager is taking a lot of flack but I don’t blame him at all. We don’t have the players chum. Very young team aswell. I hope they give the manager time. We just can’t score but we really are in a bad way at the minute.

    No star players. Very few premier league players etc. Cities 4th choice keeper is our number one and he is 19. Very good prospect though

    Ah fair enough Sean. Yeah looking through that side, there aren’t many names that stand out as there would have been in previous years. Hopefully some good players coming through.

    The manager is getting slaughtered over here. His biggest job was manager of Dunfermline abd he’s win leagues in our national league. He did a great job for the under 21s.

    We don’t have the players. It’s a very poor squad and we are the level
    Of Luxembourg etc that’s the truth. We are terrible but I don’t think anyone could do much with these guys

    honest players who give it everything but we are no were near a decent level

    Ed, if you think back 20-30 years, Ireland have had many players across Liverpool, Utd and other decent PL sides. Now, we have players in the Championship. For one reason or another, the quality of player coming up through the ranks is just not up to it.

    I havent watched a single minute of our latest hilarious effort at at WC qualification, so I cant be very specific on what’s going wrong besides that. Honestly, I’ve just come to dislike international football and not just because Ireland suck. I didnt watch the Euros there, which I normal would have. The way that they do qualification rubs me the wrong way each time (this current break being no exception). I wish they’d either get rid of it or play the qualifiers with non-top tier players or something. I honestly wouldnt care how rubbish it was , as-long as it stopped interfering with top level club football.

    I feel very much the same Sean so you are not alone. I just wish they would put everyone in a bag and draw out, No double games, no extra time no penalties…just one game over 90 minutes. Of course it will never happen but then they will not get my interest either and I suspect I will not be alone.

    As to Irelands footballers, very difficult and as you say those that appear are now in lower leagues but then it is up to the Irish spirit for those players to do well and get noticed.

    I will be just pleased when normal services resumed next week, for us, away at Leicester…should be interesting

    Our goal keeper plays at city but is on loan at Portsmouth. Gavin basuna is his name. Excellent prospect

    4 nil was a decent result for England as it should have been, Bellingham looked promising good performance from Lingard. Be a different team v Poland and a much bigger challenge.

    Brazil vs Argentina called off because the Brazilian authorities would not allow 4 Argentina players to be on the field due to Covid protocol

    Italy break the world record undefeated in 37 games but ironically by drawing against Switzerland they in a bit of danger of not qualifying for the world cup.
