FAI merging with IFA?

Could you see Billy from the Shankill having a pre match pint in Dublin with Sean from The Falls with a tri colour wrapped around him? It's pure fantasy land, that is, so it is.

Well I aspire to a unified Irish state and believe that is possible... So I don't see why a new team with new anthem, flag (and colours if need be) wouldn't work. If billy and Sean don't like it they can do one

That's the problem with this kind of proposal. It is always characterised as joining "themmuns", the people you have rows with a couple of streets away. But neither Billy nor Sean are Ireland, and Jim from Banbridge and Frank from Waterford should be able to have a pint without problems.
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Quote from the Irish Times above shows what's important at Windsor Park.

“Lots of Catholics support Northern Ireland and that is certainly the way it should be, as long as they stand for the Queen, that’s all we want to know.”

No, it shows what is important for one Shankill Road Loyalist.

The article said he was speaking in an official capacity representing all Northern Ireland fans.

Are you saying a sample of 1 isn't a representative cross - section of the community?

Easiest qualifying group ever.

Have you checked out England's group?

Fair play to Norn Iron and they will defo be my 2nd team in the tournament, if the Republic qualify.

Although the location of Windsor Park doesnt help, Eddie Harrison and his sentiment don't own Norn Iron. Its not exclusive to those guys and that attitude, as I am sure gawa could testify.

That is a very generous post. Well done.
