Yeah I think the conversation has became muddied somewhere. We don't produce many flair players is not unreasonable. Tbh in the "home nations " wales have probably been the best in that regard with giggs and bale.

Giggs a flair player?

Maybe for his first 2-3 seasons. After that he was a solid, team-first player with a touch of class. And that's not a criticism.

Never mind play sports out in the street or estate green areas

Everything is now organized for them by adults, whereas they learned more from impromptu 2 v 2 or 3 v 3 games

This. And when they come into development squads in soccer they get all individuality bet out of them.

First two/three seasons? His professional debut was in 91! His flair season was definitely 99 ffs! Wise up
None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Ea

he turned into more a midfield brain with good passing as he got older, but when he still had the legs he was definitely a flair player!

I see Cooper at Forest might be for the chop...a lad like him would be good. Or Chris Wilder too. Lads who can improve Championship players and don't lump it.

Did the six county supporters stay outside the stadium until after Ireland's national anthem was played?

Certainly looked like that, I missed the start and during match there was a big crowd. Then when I saw anthem clips online no supporters there. If that's what they did I hope they enjoyed the result.

If they came in late, then they'd leave early after getting that battering at home.

I'm not sure if they did or not but the backdrop might just have been that one of the stands was empty with fans only in one stand as it wasn't a sell out.

Carsley and Hughton the top 2 it seems for the Men's job...

I'll say it again, if Cooper gets the chop...Even the likes of Wilder at Sheffield would have been a call before he went back there. Solid teams who show some ingenuity at times.

I would like a succession plan and get the likes of a Duff in to build. He could do Shels and coach with Ireland too under a more experienced manager.

Remember that it is not an attractive job.  The talent is mediocre apart from Ferguson
