Ah Gareth Crooks - 2 out of 3 teams can qualify from Group C. I really hope, I know, that this is the view of many outside Ireland and not just pundits - remember Bilic saying he feels sorry for Ireland? This must be music to the ears of Irish fans. I so hope the Irish management team actually plays some of this stuff to the players over there and uses it because there is alot of commentary out there. No better motivation for an Irish team.
As an Irish fan we know it's a really tough group for Ireland. We know we are unlikely to progress. But we also know we can progress. It is not impossible for us to get out of that group because we know what Ireland can do when they play well. And Ireland always raise their game at a tournament.
Thinking of the English in particular pissing on Ireland's chances - I was reading a column Alan Shearer wrote saying how good he thought it was that expectations were so low for England - then he goes on to say "with this attitude maybe we can win it"
So let's keep this thread for those trolling Ireland's chances. There is stuff out there that if Ireland do well should be gold after the tournament
