Have watched all 10 episodes of Mr. Mercedes. A decent watch with a interesting end to the series.  The portrayal of a psychopath by Harry Treadaway was probably the best i have seen since Javier Bardem in no country for old men.  I read recently Treadaway only took over the leading role after the death of Anton Yelchin.

So many on the Irish team that aren't even a relation of international footballer in other words its achievement in itself that they reached the play offs. Eriksen has scored as many goals tonight as he has scored for Tottenham in the Premier league this season enough said there.

I didn’t want to go to Russia anyways.
We should all rally around on here and send you to Russia on a one way ticket

Players arguing among themselves on the field, behind the scenes in the dressing room wouldn't be pretty at half time.

As good as over now alright. 3 goals in that Irish side highly unlikely, defending on both Denmark goals was awful.

A second goal is there for the Irish as Denmark  are looking a bit ropey in defence.

That is another nil all draw in the world cup qualifiers. I fancy tomorrow nights game will go the same way.

Italy won't be missed. Who did they have on their team? It is not like 94 when they had baggio and Zola in their squad. This time around all the hype is about Buffon retiring, not on the great players who will miss the world cup.

I'd normally agree, but they at least try to play football by passing it around and are technically much better than a lot of teams. They'd still bring more to the tournie than the Swedes, who parked the bus last night.

I’d argue the Swedes will bring more to a WC than a poor Italian side. If they had much to bring to the table they’d have qualified.

They'll also bring their blonde's in the crowd. Camera men will be happy

Speaking of blondes in the crowd will she be attending tonight?

A World cup without Italy!

Good and the more world cups where the likes of italy and holland dont go then the sooner fifa realise their folly of giving all the extra spots in expanded tournaments to pub teams from asia, africa and central america. No-one cared when a good croatia ukraine or even ireland didnt qualify in the past but muck like saudi arabia, algeria honduras north korea etc did. Watch how quickly qualifying changes if ever germany, france or spain feck it up.

I think Italy are soccer royalty in a way France or Spain are not actually, so this result would have shaken things up anyway I think, if they hadn't already decided to go to 40 or whatever it is next time around. I'm gutted Italy won't be there. They are never the most exciting to watch, but they ooze class, and filth in equal measure. Also Buffon is my favourite soccer player i think. He genuinely acts like a really nice guy.

Plus the anthem, the jerseys, Goalazzzo. Shit I'm disappointed Sweden will be there instead of them.

A sad end to his international career if tonight was his final game. 1958 since Italy didn't reach the World cup?

No apparently in it, he was the best player a couple of seasons ago but probably isn't now. You mightn't think so which is your prerogative but most people would agree he was the best player in the game for 2 or 3 seasons there. Wonderful all round player who would've graced any team in any era.
I wouldn't be surprised to see Joe kernan trying to get him out to join the irish team for next weeks game. His strength, kick passing and score taking would make a massive difference in terms of quality to ireland's chances next weekend.
A tad over hyped lets be honest. A great player that can cause serious damage when left totally unmarked however when a decent marker is on him his score talking isn't that hot.  Irish panel was picked after trials 3 months ago Big Joe isn't suddenly going to draft players in and Connolly played only once for Ireland.

Switzerland wouldn't have scored from open play if they played another two games, Northern Ireland won't get many better opportunities to reach a World cup than that. The pitch was a joke for such a high profile game.

That awful award of a penalty is looking like the only goal of the two 2 legs.

Is it not Connacht v Leinster champions in the semi final this year?

Double checked you are right as Castlebar played Crossmaglen in the 2016 semi final.
