This means nothing. I'd love to go to all of Irelands games but the price of tickets is crazy.
We probably do have some of the best fans in the world but in no way is this being put forward as a compensation for a poor football team.
I'm thankful that we have produced people with enough common sense that they can go in large numbers and behave in a civilised manner.
I know alot of people say that this should be a given but in reality when you look at other nations fans it is not.
