Crazy couple of days there eh

Big Jack got a touchline ban after the  Aldridge substitution fiasco  v Mexico .

Maybe someone can clarify this , but my memory of  it was Irish fans had a whip  round to pay for Jack's fine , and Jack said to give the  money to the Loughinisland  families?

At some point I was in a bar and OJ's face appeared on the TV

Which set off a chorus of "OH-jay, OH-jay, OH-jay ..." to the tune of Ole... from the assembled Irish fans.

After the Norway game I was in a bar (there was a pattern) and a couple of Norway fans came. After a few minutes they were standing on stools conducting the rest of the bar in singing "Thanks for beating England" and "Who put the ball in the England net, NORWAY, NORWAY" , (Norway had beaten England in qualifying)

Some hilarious stuff on those trips. I was a bit later as too young then but some hilarious experiences from euro 2012 kind of time.

The Loughinisland massacre took place also that fateful night..

No stone unturned was on last night. Watched the first hour crazy night.

Oh and my wife (girlfriend at the time) stood me up!

she was worth another chance then ??

He gave her a black card instead of a red.

 ;D  ;D

No cards in those days ;D

It did allow me to head to my local and watch the match. when the goal went I thought the upstairs was going to fall into the ground floor!
None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Ea

I remember Mortimer lifting his jersey and something was written about MJ on a white t-shirt underneath.

RIP Micheal Jackson (Michael misspelt!). Was bizarre

King of pop and dodgy as f**k. Would you have let your kid spend time around him unsupervised?

Almost as if Mortimer was thick as pig shit who had very little between the ears other than how to kick a football over the bar in low pressure games.
