I'd say they would have played him, he wasn't bad.

I see on OWC they reckon the ROI fans booed the NI anthem, booed Steven Davis, and chanted ooh-ah Up the 'Ra?

Is this true? Pathetic if so.

International football doesn't have much time left, when two close and bitter rivals can neither attract a crowd nor put on a show.

End of season, no nothing tournament that the players don't even want to play in.  If it was worth anything the place would be hiving.

Timing of this competiton is crap with season just ended, play offs and qualifiers next week, not to mention ticket prices.

Ad on radio is a laugh. Stars are coming in the Nations cup or whatever it is called. "Keane.... Evans.......Bale.......Fletcher".

Shows how far Scotland have fallen from the days of Dalglish, Souness,etc when their most glamorous player is Darren Fletcher

GSTQ got a bit of a half-hearted booing alright. Nothing compared to what the Scots or the Welsh give it though. Can't say I noticed any of the others.

Davis received boos when he was leaving the pitch to be subbed.
Hardly worth mentioning, never mind deserve a presupposed conditional condemnation from AZ, based on owc hearsay.
The game was played in good friendly spirt all through.
I just hope the  owc fans were more law abiding than the drunk and disorderly element who attended their game against Scotland.

Why's it hardly worth mentioning? Would it be mentioned if the roles were reversed?

I went down to the match with a couple of my NI supporting mates and we were sat close the most vocal Ireland fans.  Initially we thought they were chanting oh ah up the ra but when we actually listened it was clear they were singing a song about Paul McGrath of which the line oh ah Paul McGrath was used. Whilst it was clear from where we were sitting that was what they were singing I can understnad what it must have sounded like at the other end.

I didnt notice Davis getting any abuse either although the anthem was booed which was not nice to hear and should be condemned. That said The most trouble though seemed to come from the NI fans though when they unfurled a banner saying "FAI stop poaching our players but you can have Gibson" after which there seemed to be a few minor disturbances between NI fans and stewards.

Delighted for Stephen Ward. Trap only told him at lunchtime he was playing and it capped off a great week for him.

BBC report said anthem was "roundly booed", but didnt mention anything about davis or up the ra, though main street seems to confirm that the davis one happened.

All them things are mild compared what would have happened if the shoe was on the other foot.

yes gstq was booed - you could hear it on the telly clearly enough from the news highlights.
People say it wasnt that much or that many booing- well there was fcuk all of a crowd so it woul dhave been a large enough percentage to be that audible imo.
ok maybe young lads half drunk acting the maggot - but still booing.

didnt hear boos for davis during the match, but I dont think he had the ball more than twice in the highlights.

didnt hear any ooh ahh up the ra.
Did see plenty of union jacks - must have been at least 4/5 - prob one uj for every 5 members of the north of Ireland support !

RTE did start their highlights programme hinting at some 'trouble' or disturbance - but this wasnt mentioned at the end of the prog - that I heard anyhow.
I suspect now that it was related to the crowd 'trouble' - was it bad  and how bad was it. Couldnt have been much, th enews had nothing on it and there were feck all north of Ireland fans there anyhow.

Finally - good run out for Ireland B team - shows that we have more strength in depth than the north's B team !

laoislad - yer a sour hoor  - but that made me laugh !

jeez- he did well, was impressed with him last night - ok he wasnt up against much but he looked good and showed a poachers instinct! Big lad too it seems...
well done to him, i'd say the family are over the moon !
