Players Occupation has not been listed in Match Programmes for years now!

The GAA have realised that many inter-county players don't have real Jobs anymore or are eternal students.

It's another way of sweeping the reality of the situation (especially in Dublin) under the Carpet from the common supporter.

Denmark and away first, what a great draw.

Yeah, thought that first about playing at away first, but we got most of our points away from home Qualifying!

The getting most of our points away from home stat is misleading ;   Austria were a bit of a shambles the night in Vienna and the Wales result was sans Bale in a slug fest .

Denmark will be favourites here .

Our better results in the Group came against Serbia, Wales and Austria, 7 points AFAIK. We got 2 points at home against the same 3!

I pretty much always enjoy Brollyís column, even when I donít agree with him.

But this wasnít a good one. Itís basically telling the same average joke in each of 20 consecutive paragraphs. I understand that humour is often based on repetition, but this was dull.

Plus, Iím still trying to work out why itís okay for one former player to make a large six figure sum indirectly from the Association i.e. himself, but not for another.


The reason is that he ''works'' to earn his money. Gooches money is a handout!

Looks like payback time for Gooch's wee Late Late Show fib  :o

Thatís assuming Gooch gives a f@@@ what Brolly thinks,says or writes!

obviously he does or wouldnt have went on about it on the LLS

Gooch did not go on about it. He was asked about it and fobbed it off with a lie!

Will Healy-Rae see it as funny as Gooch won't?

Is he a man for the solicitor's letter?

Ah, it's written by a man who works in the Business (law). There'll be nothing liable there!

Thought O Neills substitutions were poor. Bringing on Whelan and Kevin Long meant we were going to spend the last 10 camped inside our own box while Wales peppered the box with crosses and had 6 or 7 half chances from the edge of the area. If one of them had flown in O Neills would have been crucified for the negativity of his substitutions. They didn't so he's a hero. We hoofed away possession all night too. I think O Neill has been lucky rather than good.

Bringing on Whelan and Long were the correct choices. 30 years of Irish football tells you that the final 15 minutes was never going to involve us holding onto the ball. Keeping Murphy on would have been a serious waste.
Whelan didn't win a tackle or make one telling defensive contribution in the time he was on and needless to say he did nothing constructive. I don't think Long touched it. Bring on Houlihan and Maguire and try to keep the ball. This was Wales minus Bale not France or Germany. We gave up a lot of chances in the last few minutes to a team that's as ordinary as ourselves. Why concede the initiative so completely? We've been caught out enough times doing similar.

In fairness it was a Battle at that stage. All about bullying the ball. All well and good Houlihan being able to be able to put his foot on the ball and make a telling pass, but there was not going to be any support play.

Yes, it was about Parking the Bus at that stage!

To be fair - Soccer gets a bad rep! Never mind the North South stuff! Rugby and GAA can do no wrong! Rugby achievements get completely over rated and GAA gets away with no other country to bench-mark against!
