Played well and always an entertaining side to watch. Gerry Armstrong is a total wab. Davis is real quality.

If a team can't score a single goal in 180+ minutes then they can have no complaints about exiting a competition.

Going on our Performance in the first tie, we may be saying the same.

They can when their opponents would have been in the same position but for an outrageous penalty decision (and should have played 85 minutes of the first leg with 10 men).

Still gutted after yesterday but very proud of how the team went about the game. The what might have been a on the penalty, the red card not given, and the first leg performance and approach will, sadly, last for years.

Sadly it took a courageous English jounalist,Daily Mirror's Kevin Maguire to raise the issue of the addition of No Surrender,to the English national anthem last Thursday at Windsor Park. He explained on BBC Talkback on Friday that he could see why a whole commmunity is alienated by this and other things,and why they won't support the team.

Look, decisions go for you and against you, shit happens and I am not having that as an excuse, youse were played off the park in the first leg, at home and failure to show up killed you.

As for your last comment I could not agree more, the approach to the first leg was a disgrace frankly, and I am an admirer of the manager, that was shocking and ultimately did you all in.


As for compensation for getting knocked out by a dubious penalty....................................................... :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[

The North getting put out due to a mistake by the referee is a sickener to be honest.  Switzerland didn't beat NI, the ref did.

You can have all the possession in the world a play a team off the park but if you can’t put the ball in the net and rely on ref mistake you’d need to question your own tactics, the Swiss only had 2 shots on target at Windsor..

I don't recall the ref scoring the penalty.

Seriously, NI didn't make it. Boo hoo, I won't be losing any sleep over it. Can't believe the sob stories over this.

I'd say there is only two real NI fans here on the board and fair play to them, so let them sob, if i was a supporter of a team and they were dealt that hand I'd be gurnning too.. for the record i was cheering them on as they as i like the way they have played these last few years under Michael..

Northern Ireland has a good spell every 25 years or so. You can understand that this could be the end of an era, since NI itself might not last another 25 years.
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Yes I do. And I got over it 10 minutes later.

Anyway, there's reason to get annoyed at something when your own team is involved. Very few have any affiliation to Norn Iron on here, so why would you care?

People still crying about Henry all these years later; obviously have got over it.
