This evening.

Ireland have booked a date with the host nation France, in the knockout stages of Euro 2016.

Robbie Brady (top) headed home against Italy following a tense, dodgy ref-packed 85 minutes and 30 seconds.

No slip-ups, we go again..

Final score: Italy 0 Ireland 1 

Meanwhile..

Squee!

Thanks Hugh

UEFA Euro 2016

        Oh ye the tension… what drama… that goal saved me from drop kicking the screen out the window and immediately dropping dead from an angry “funk you ref, you fupp’n xyz” heart attack!….

        :-J

    They did well when needed, but luckily they weren’t tested too much. It was a poor Italian team, but we have been beaten by worse teams, so fair play to them for stepping up as needed.

    booked my flight and hotel for Sunday in Paris. Done it at half time, optimism pays off.

            You’ll get your very own baguette. The only catch is you must bring decent tea and tampons.

    Don’t forget to pick a good bar to watch the match in. The ones around the Eiffel Tower will do specials as it’s a French game. €89.99 for the glass of beer and a mini Eiffel Tower to stab yourself in the eye with on presentation of Le Billet.

      Hello Hicksonian…
      (…see how I didn’t make fun of your name..?
      -That means that I’m your friend because I think that you’re funny.)

      I am friends with Bartie Blinkerblox too*, so we could meet up or something…when your Ma is at the Bingo or something. In your gaff. I could bring me mates…I have some deadly tunes and …hang on a minute…
      :-Joe wants to say something….

      *A total lie. I never met the girl.

      ‘Le billet’ is a ticket for a plane or train or something; you mean ‘l’addition’

      (but yes, Paris is dreadful)

      1. Janet, I ate my avatar

        Pff that’s like saying Dublin is dreadful if you do all your trip in Temple Bar. They see you coming lads.

            shrugs and blows cigarette smoke un your general direction ( actually I don’t smoke just sad you didn’t get the most out of your experience )

            I live in Brussels now – much nicer than Paris. More laid-back, you don’t have to spend 45 mins on the metro each way to go to do anything, the apartments are bigger and cheaper – c’est la bonne endroit.

          3. Janet, I ate my avatar

            crap Hook is the London one Bia Mara is the Brussels one… sure do both lol

      Its “L’addition” . Le Billet is something entirely different. brush up that french S’il te plait.

    REPEATED BAD TEAM SELECTIONS AND SOME BAD CHOICES REPEATED

    SEEMINGLY A TEAM WITH NO IDEA OF THE BASICS OF HOW THE GAME IS SUPPOSED TO BE PLAYED

    COLLECTIVELY WITH EXCEPTIONS, A COMPLETE LACK OF ABILITY TO LOOK AROUND AND THINK BEFORE HOOFING IT AND THE SIMPLE IDEA OF PASS AND RUN OR LINKING UP AS FOREIGN AN IDEA AS QUANTUM PHYSICS(YOU NEED TO BE IN TWO PLACES AT THE SAME TIME)

    ROY KEANE A ONCE WORLD CLASS GREAT CONTROLLING DEFENSIVE PASSING MIDFIELDER SEEMINGLY UNABLE AS A COACH TO INSPIRE THE SAME IN ANYONE ON THE TEAM TO GREAT EFFECT

    DEPENDING ON OTHER PEOPLES RESULTS WHERE ICELAND POP 300+K,, NORINIRELAND, HUNGARY ETC MAKE IT THROUGH PURELY ON MERIT.

    Beating a weakened Italian side in the last 5 mins of normal time that was happy to try and defend and counter (but really didn’t care because fk our luck, it’s Spain next) has already qualified.

    F-U-6-K-1-N-6 AWESOME !!!!!

    REVENGE FOR THE HAND OF FROG

      Go easy on the French please, Spaghetti Pooh.
      I feel so bad about how I took advantage of so many of them over the years that I think it’s only fair if we let them win.
      It kinda evens things up, almost.

    They scored a goal* :-Joe!!!!!
    It was on the telly and everything, with young kids watching it in their living-rooms, and their parents probably didn’t even know where they were, or where their kids were, and I’m telling you :-Joe, I saw it meself on a big telly…I swear, it was massive. A Ferguson 20” colour with a ‘wood-effect’ finish, but it tends to overheat if you spill beer on it. Don’t ask…I haven’t a clue.
    You couldn’t make it up :-Joe.

    *I’m not sure about this. I might have just made it up.

    Ole Ole Ole! To beat France on their own patch will be an excellent way to spend a Sunday
    Was a great game to watch last night, a display that was refreshing and honest.
    Thought Delaney was going to knock our President over!

    Keith Mills is giving counselling to the Italian team, after all he knows how it is to be on the losing team..

    Emotions abound last night, i cried for the first time in years…

  9. Junkface

    Amazing result! Jesus christ it was agony to watch in the 2nd half, and our luck with dodgy refs is bordering on suspicious but they pulled it out of the bag Brady & Holohan!! COYBIG!
