Have wired a few of these systems. Wasn't impressed with any of them that I have seen working.
Better off with your Henry or similar as mentioned above imo.

Routine win against potential relegation team....nothing  I get excited about.
Are we a bit grumpy today?
4 games against Southampton last year and I don't think we scored once!
It was a great performance today.
Salah of course was excellent and is by far the signing of the season. He has 14 goals already this season. No one has scored more than 14 for Liverpool in a season since Suarez left.
I thought Trent Alex was also immmense today.
Couthino's pass for the second goal was sublime.
Was a bit concerned with Klavan and Lovern starting together but they really were not tested that much.
4 wins on the bounce now.

Cawnt believe Tony hasn't been on about this game today.
People like Tony and a few others like StGalls etc only come on if their team win. If Spurs lose he won't be posting anything on here.

I don't like Martin O'Neill but Tony O'Donoughe was being an arsehole there.

Liverpool should sign Ward. He'd fit right in.

Sums up Ireland. Hope the ball out over the sideline.
Too many Nordies on the team dragging us down with their stone age defensive hoof ball.

Who do we cheer for in Russia now?
Have North Korea qualified yet?

Sad news about Liam Miller. Cancer is a cnut.
Hopefully he pulls through.

I said before the playoff draw that I wouldn't mind if Ireland had drew Italy.
Thought they were shocking tonight. Never looked liked scoring.

It was an appallingly bad penalty call, worse in its way that infamous Henry and Matadona incidents of years gone by in that itís worse for a referee to give something that didnít happen than to miss something that did happen. He guessed, and guessed wrongly. It totally changes the complexion and likely outcome of the tie.

NI were however poor, not getting a shot on target isnít good enough. Switzerland were obviously superior opposition but we let ourselves down a bit in key areas. Itís hard to see us getting the win we need in Basel.
It was a very bad call but I don't think it was worse than the Henry or Maradona incidents. It was the same as giving a penalty for diving. Which would also be giving a penalty for something that didn't happen ie a foul.
The main differences though is Ireland were knocked out that night against France and didn't have a second game to try and right the wrong.
N.Ireland still have an opportunity to qualify so it wasn't as much as a game changer as the Henry handball as Ireland only had what was left of extra time to score again.
N.Ireland have a full 90mins and a few days of preparation.

Libreoffice is a great job. I've been using it for years.

The biggest omission from last nights show was John Tracey winning silver in the Marathon at the Los Angeles Olympics.
Made all the better by Jimmy Magee's commentary as he came to the finish line. That was a great moment in Irish Sport and deserved to be on the list.
An Irishman coming anywhere near the medals in an Olympic marathon is probaly impossible nowadays.

1990's moments -

O'Leary penalty
Clare hurlers 95
Clare footballers 92
Alan McLoughlin goal
Donegal/Derry winning Sam
Maurice Fitz 97 final
Houghton again 94
Michelle Smith golds
If it's to be Ireland's Greatest sporting moment it has to be something that happens on an international stage like a World Cup or Olympics or whatever. Where the whole country is at a standstill and watching and everyone remembers where they were when it happened.
Clare winning an All Ireland in 1995 or Donegal or Derry winning isn't one of those moments. It's great for the people from them counties but no one outside of that.

The obvious standout moment is David O'Learys peno.
I would have thought Michael Carruth should have been on that list.
Laois winning Leinster in 2004 was picked up by news media all over the world. It is used in psychology seminars every day. Yes you can.
Laois didn't win Leinster in 2004 so everyone in those seminars are being sold a lie.
