    Really good from Randolph, Duffy, Christie , Meyler, Hendrix and McLean.

    Pretty dire game of football but then there isnít a decent side amongst the Home International sides and Rep of Ire. Only N.Ireland consistently over achieve.

    Agreed about the Home Nations and the Republic... itís painful to watch - simply about crunching another team out of playing any real football at all. Lots of running, closing down, tons of effort but no skill or quality.

    If the rest of the world played the game like that - the TV money would dry up.. Turgid lame arsed garbage..

    It must be cultural, I canít think of any other explanation.. But what it highlights is how crap the Premier League would be without the foreign talent on show... my word it would be shyte...!

    The nordies have done really well, believe only ze Germans have scored against them in the group.

    Still think England have the players just not a team. Southgate getting a big pass imo. Looked really poor in the second half I saw v Lithuania, defensively and in possession. Many changes noted, it still looked bad.

    Disagree. Don’t like England but different league to rest of home nations. They always breeze through qualifying while most others either don’t qualify or scrape into playoffs. They are like Celtic and the Ireland’s, welsh and Sweaties like the rest of Scottish league. But like Celtic England look shit when face anyone from outside the nation of skirt wearers.

    They have a disproportionately large number of ginger haired people and they no longer breed decent footballers.

    It's always cold there with the sun only appearing in the Scottish sky three times a year. (For ease of reference, think 'beyond the wall').

    And if you can believe it, they deep fry Mars Bars.



    Hope this info helps...
    Cap doffed. Only a mars bar quote away from award winning!
