    Reminds me of the square in Dundalk after Houghton scored against Italy. I was on a guards sholders

        What you’re really saying is “I’m a Rugger Fan and wouldn’t know that there was an Ireland soccer game on”.

    boozing all night because one group of men can kick a piece of leather around a field better than another group of men. Seriously?

    Or maybe it’s just the fact it’s a Friday morning and we love booze.

    1. Prop Joe

      Yep that’s exactly it.
      That’s what we are doing.

      Let’s use your analogy for lots of other stuff shall we?

      Boozing all night because some old fart managed to be born 50 years ago and hasn’t died, seriously?

      Boozing after work because you had a hard week and like to “socialise” with people you know from your office, seriously?

      Breathing because you like to be alive? Seriously?

      Being an unapologetic wet blanket @rsehole because you like to suck the fun out of everything and aren’t happy unless you’re mocking or some other way putting down your country of birth because you are so clearly so much better than everyone else? Seriously?

      Get over yourself, Captain Bringdown. Other people’s choice of events and happenings of which to make a celebration have no impact on your lonely life, nor does the manner in which they celebrate it.

      1. Scundered

        All the examples you gave do not block the streets till 4am. Please Google the meaning of analogy.

        1. Prop Joe

          What actual harm was done?? To you, or to anyone else?
          Please explain how this affected you.

          Please also explain your derision of football and why it was necessary.

          1. Scundered

            To me personally no harm whatsoever, am sure taxi drivers or people living in the area might feel differently. But it’s more to do with being that excited over something which to me seems very trivial. I don’t get it that’s all.

          2. Prop Joe

            And what excites you?
            Do you deride other things from which people draw excitement?
            I don’t get why people get excited over new phones, cars, golf, darts, racing, Olympics, rugby, and countless other things – I don’t belittle it or begrudge them their passion.

            I get excited over music, travel, restaurants….I don’t think anyone who would begrudge me that is worth my time.
            No need to make fun of other people’s passions.
            If something like this can bring a community together in celebration then why be so negative about it?
            The last time I saw the streets like that, full of people celebrating and in good spirits was the milenium New Year

          allow me to add to Prop Joe’s compendium

          writing some ignorant trollful bunkum on the internet at 10:41 am and not even having the excuse of boozing all night for your woolly-headed commentary, seriously?

    2. rotide

      Boozing all night because a higher amount of people scrawled one thing on a piece of paper than another group of people? seriously?

      That blocked town as well remember.

      Ireland beat the world champions and secured at least a qualification playoff. It was only a few games ago that the qualification dream was in tatters. These people are feeling relief and joy and celebrating the feeling. You seem to pride yourself on repeatedly demonstrating here your inability to experience either. Sucks to be you.

        1. ReproBertie

          Scundered is the guy who arrived late and doesn’t get the in-joke from earlier so he tries to ruin it for everyone else.

      1. Mani

        That’s true, but eh, all these lads were queuing up for the Georgia match then? remember that bursting to capacity crowd?

        1. ReproBertie

          Who’d have thought that a match against the world champions would draw a bigger crowd than a match against Georgia? Don’t people know that ticket stubs from every home game of a campaign must be produced before celebrating anything?

          1. Mani

            That’s a load of rubbish.

            The Georgia match was an import qualifying match.

            Best fans in the world. As long as we’re playing a team that have top league players whose names I recognise. Or if it’s away and I can go on the tear.


          2. ReproBertie

            How is it rubbish? There is such a thing as a casual fan and for a casual fan, given the choice between going to see Ireland V Georgia or Ireland V Germany Germany will win every time. You’d have to be pretty mean spirited to complain about people celebrating a win like last night’s because they didn’t go to an earlier qualifier.

            Bigger game bigger crowd is a simple fact of sport. Leinster get a bigger crowd for a HECnua QF than for a HECnua pool game. [Insert GAA county] get a bigger crowd for an All Ireland Semi Final than for a first round match. Conor McGregor gets more support for an interim title fight in Las Vegas than for a Cage Warriors match in a GAA club in Kildare. There’s no rule and everyone is someone else’s johnny come lately bandwaggon jumper.

          3. rotide

            I suppose people going to see any band in the point aren’t real fans because they didnt go to whatever fleapit they first started in ?

            There was a lot more people out celebrating the referendum than ever turned up at the marches a few years ago. Bloody johnny come latelys

    1. Mario Balotelli

      It seriously wasn’t a fluke. Lucky to get a run on the goal from a long punt, but the touch at full speed was intentional, staying ahead of the German defenders at full tilt and to slot it past one of the top keepers in the world, from a reasonably tight angle, under huge pressure. It was a superb goal.

      1. scottser

        at one point long controls the ball with his knee. at speed. that’s an incredible skill, and a fantastic finish. it had liam brady eating his words, which is remarkable in itself.

      1. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

        Exactly! It was stupendous.
        And I say that as a fair weather fan who could name more German than Irish players.

  3. Lordblessusandsaveus

    The Irish celebrate mediocrity.

    About ten years ago I copped on that going the whole hog on a project for a client here is pointless. All people want here is average and they think it’s brilliant.

    They don’t deserve my best effort and time so f*ck them. They’ll get average but pay me premium.

    1. Ban Doyle

      Yes – that is quite true

      When I procure a fishwife like you I do like her to be of the mediocre variety.
