Given his history on here I believe he could be trusted to discuss something rationally though any respect I had for him has been seriously diminished.

Firstly Donagh could you explain the highlighted bit for me? How does someone actually mutter out of the corner of his mouth on an internet discussion board?

Are you now backing down from Shane?

If you want to be taken seriously, spit it out into the open, even better how about relaying it back to my face? Otherwise take your adolescent behaviour back to your classroom where it may be appreciated.

On a side note Donagh my lunch break is almost over, so unlike Sinn Fein dole scum like yourself I may not be available to reply immediately. If I get a chance later this afternoon I`ll check in to have a look at your ramblings.  ;)
As another poster has already said could you try to keep this thread on topic, if you want to start a thread on the hypocricy of todays republican movement please do so. This thread is the "Official FAI Thread", Ireland is a foreign country to the likes of you.  ;)

Oops, wrong thread and I see I've been to the post anyway.

Fifa's Sepp Blatter has revealed the Ireland have requested a spot in the 2010 World Cup finals as an extra team after their play-off defeat.

Ireland lost to an extra-time goal against France when Thierry Henry handled the ball during the build-up.

"I will bring it to the attention of the Executive Committee," said Blatter.

The president of football's world governing body added that goal-line technology and extra referees would be considered for the South Africa finals.

Are we really looking for an extra place.  :(

Good that goal line technology is being considered.

FFS let it go.  We were not guaranteed to get through if the 'goal' hadn't been scored... enough is enough.

I cant find the proper FAi thread?

Delaney hits out at GAA's stance on Croker
16 January 2010

John Delaney has claimed the FAI and IRFU might not have gone ahead with the Aviva Stadium development if they had known Croke Park would be available to them in the long term.

The GAA only agreed to open its doors to soccer and rugby in 2007 on a temporary basis, but the financial success of staging international games at Croke Park has seen a change in attitude in the GAA, and it is expected that a motion will passed at Congress in April which will give Central Council the power to open the stadium to other sports in the future.

But speaking after yesterday's announcement that the Republic of Ireland's glamour friendly on March 3 against Brazil will take place in Arsenal's Emirates Stadium and not Croke Park, the FAI chief executive again ruled out a return for the international soccer team to GAA headquarters for at least 10 years, stating that the GAA's initial position forced soccer and rugby chiefs to redevelop Lansdowne Road and sign long-term contracts with sponsors and suppliers.

"Had it been made clear going in that Croke Park would remain open in the longer term, I think that discussion could have taken place," the Waterford native said.

"But it was made clear to both Philip Browne (IRFU CEO) and myself when we attended the first meetings that Croke Park was not going to become available to us in the longer haul."
