JerseyTim: Robbie Keane is playing his goddamn heart out.


Got to feel sorry for the poor bastard ...

4-0 Spain. Bleedin' Christ.

That could've hurt somebody.

Alright, we get it. They suck.

OK, what was I saying about how it could be 5-0 earlier?

Was about to add Given to that, but then that goal happened. Shiatty defending.

Carl Winslow's .9 MM: Ireland now officially 5000/1 to win it all at Sportingbet. Skipping a pack of smokes for a five dollar bet.


What is it now?

Holy crap...I think the post almost crumpled....

Irish fans - keep in mind they're playing the world champions...

darwinoid: Irish fans in good voice. Hopefully it's not the highlight of the night.


Turns out I was right.

Not much Given could have done. The Irish defense has been brutal these past two games.

How drunk is Tommy Smyth going to be when we go back to the studio? I hope he lunges across the desk at Lalas.

The 4th goal wasn't the goalie's fault. The five guys in front of him that were just watching Fabregas walking through the box on the other hand..

Thanks for the laugh ... almost cheered me up.

Yeah, Ireland's getting beat like a redheaded stepchild.

Irish fans still there in force, signing a funeral dirge.

Irish fans still singing. Good on them.

It's because they're hammered, Ian.

Yep. "A fair bit of drinking, I won't lie. Happy drunks, the Irish." Love the commentary.

Yes. And they're still singing. A good five minute now. About the only thing about the last two games that makes me proud to be Irish.

Italy has never beaten Ireland unter Trapattoni. That, I fear, will end on Monday.
 
2012-06-14 04:43:04 PM  
As Mammy used to say, they couldn't kick snow off a rope.

Well, I'm off to my local for a (passable for the US) pint of Guinness. Sláinte!

borrowed from the cnnsi.com live blog.

"Group C now reads Spain 4, Croatia 4, Italy 2, Ireland 0. It will make life easier if Spain and Croatia DON'T draw in the next game, but if they do, and Italy beats Ireland, the top three will be separated on head-to-head goal differential in their own mini-league. So: if Spain draws 2-2, Italy will be out. 0-0, and Italy will go through. Italy faced exactly that situation in Euro 04, when a 2-2 draw between Denmark and Sweden knocked them out. The coach then? Giovanni Trapattoni... "

here's to hoping it's 2-2 draw on monday between spain and croatia.

The Spanish team are a credit to the sport I love.

The Irish fans are a credit to the country I love.
