    Not just losing tho, it's how you lost too.

    Big stretch to call Croatia one of the best teams in the world too; cod ordinary, IMHO.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Still not a team we have a right to be getting a result against.

    Can't argue with complaints about our style but it's endemic in Irish football. You should see some Irish league games, looks like rugby union circa 2003. It's all about the kicking for touch. Changing the manager of the national team would just be an act of deckchair-rearrangement.

    Of course, for most fans sacking the manager is the catch-all solution to every problem a football team might have. Meh, another rant for another day.

    Pretty poor result, really. Levein paying the price for being a massive pussy and leaving Fletcher and Rhodes on the bench.

Yes Gibson is now injured anyway but he has said he doesn't want to play at present. Makes you wonder why players don't want to play for their country.
    Gibson and McLean shouldn't be playing for the Republic in the first place.

    And Levein is a ****ing tube, the sooner the clown gets sacked the better.

    What odds do you think I could get on Belgium reaching the QF of the World Cup this far out? I really like their squad.

    NZ with a pretty comprehensive 6-1 win against the Solomons Islands tonight, so two wins from two matches is a pretty strong start to our goal of making the World Cup again.

    Well that's weak as piss, quality from Defoe as well.

    Clive can **** off with his goal that never was that came from an offside position anyway. Useless prick.

    Thought it was fair enough to give the free there tbh, you don't normally get away with the hand-off to the face.

    He gets his neck, if that. There was no force in it, his hand is just there - he doesn't swing at him.

    Meh, not saying it's a foul but they're given more often than not.

    Lol Cleverly. Having a shocker here.

    Townsend's such a ****ing moron, Defoe's perfectly lined up an open net and he's ranting about how poor a header it was. ITV's football coverage is unwatchable.

    Pick that one out. England have looked very open all match.

    Maybe the commentators can stop pretending that Jagielka and Lescott constantly passing the ball back and forth is all part of the master-plan of New England now.
