Thanks Declan. So it's just casual cultural imperialism again, in the same vein as "the mainland" and "the Open", etc?

We were royals when they were wiping the arses of their Roman slavemasters.

did you not go?

Didn't make it and got into trouble for organising a "friendly".

Yeah there was a ban on football imposed on our club for Sunday - in view of what happened (and/or didn't) on the 'walk of nightmares', it is being seen as a wasted day.

I feel terribly hurt. But Armagh will take the pain away by beating the Queen's Arselickers on Saturday evening.

"We are the best in the world! We are best in the world! We have beaten England 2-1 in football!! It is completely unbelievable! We have beaten England! England, birthplace of giants. Lord Nelson, Lord Beaverbrook, Sir Winston Churchill, Sir Anthony Eden, Clement Attlee, Henry Cooper, Lady Diana--we have beaten them all. We have beaten them all. Maggie Thatcher can you hear me?"

    "Maggie Thatcher, I have a message to you in the middle of the election campaign. I have a message to you: We have knocked England out of the World Cup of football. Maggie Thatcher, as they say in your language in boxing bars around Madison Square Garden in New York: Your boys took a hell of a beating! Your boys took a hell of a beating!"

Did I hear Gerry Armstrong say in commentary on Sky after Robbie Keane scored his first goal that he was the Republic's David Healy? Praise indeed!
That was never a square ball!!

I'm glad to see his comedy career is going so well ... he was just on the news there talking about the 'poaching' and saying 'I would never have contemplated playing for the Republic' ... it's a good job, Gerry, cos the Republic would never have contemplated picking you, ye c**k  :D
