David James in goal for England tonight

Isn't he calamity James ? What was the name associated with ? Didn't Paul robinson have a howler recently as well playing in goal for Engerland ?

I don't know about the Sky Sports characters, but the recent skits during this World Cup on the Irish sports panelists -  Brady, Stapleton, Giles, Hook were bland,  those sketch characterisations ran out of milage a long time ago and would need a good gag or punchline to keep it alive.  It was funny once upon a time.

The flip side of that argument is that Bill n Eamonn n Johnny have been doing the same routine for over 20 years and have flogged it to death. I doubt there is any other programme on RTE that has had the same crew for 20 years. Other than the Angelus.

A tight match would be the best for both teams. If Mexico can beat France surely Offaly can put it up to Galway. 

The very slow turnover of the hurling part of this site is noteworthy. It must be less than 5% of posters who are interested in the game.

i love seeing the names in Irish. Cluainin must be the nicest name of an Irish town.

They take the p%ss out of everything. And watching dunphy and co it is all ridiculous in the first place.

I love their Brian Lenihan impression. And the skits with the English accents are really top class.
There are very few TV channels anywhere running this sort of thing.

The RTE panel were drowning themselves in the in the shallow end, grasping for the underlying psychological reasons to support their pet theory, that the French players did not want to perform for their country and laying much of the fault on Domenech etc.  Dunphy (ever the master of the self contradiction) made the bizarre claim that all the Irish players went out to play for their country and perform as best they could, no matter who the manager was.
You don't say, Eamon.

It was like being in a taxi in Dublin listening to the driver explaining that O'Connell St is the widest street in Europe and that everyone loves Ireland because we are great. Maybe that is Eamon's job, to be the taxi driver of the nation.

He took the goal well.
It is funny watching Bill and Eamon discussing the French public. They have no idea. And then the only French they know is "c'est la vie". Imagine Tele France 1  discussing Ireland and mentioning leprechauns and then laughter after someone blurts out 'Pog mo thoin". 

There was no mention of the prostitution scandal that had Ribery involved- far more likely to have damaged the mood in the camp than Bill's race relations thesis.   

The article mentioned prime mobile homes going for a quarter of a million. Now reduced by 50%.
I wonder what happened to the bikinis. 

This was in the Irish times today

"Glamorous young mothers were known to buy designer “casuals” for the Brittas season and many wore high heels and full make-up with bikinis on the beach"

WTF? In county wickla ?

Will Dunphy and Giles still be there in 2030 ? the same 2 geezers since 1990 or were they on before that ?

Après Match has the best analysis. The rest of it is mostly padding. It's not just RTE or the English channels. French Tv is worse and there is no comedy element.

vuvuzela to me sounds like some gynaecological feature. I think it's the 2 v's the l , the u and the a that do it.



And that the establishment of Israel was a conspiracy by the West against Islam.
Quite frankly these Iranian political leaders are demagogues and engage in demagoguery of the lowest sort against Jews.

Why was Israel established on the land of the Palestinians? Because it was cheaper than giving the Zionists land in Europe. where did the zionists come from ?  Where were Shimon Peres or Golda Meir born? Not in the Middle East.
The establishment of Israel went  against all justice .

I see Hamann is taking over from Souness as Dunphys new best friend, isn't that right Didi, Didi knows this, Didi knows that  :D

There is a very funny apres match skit on Didi on the rte website.
