Why the f**k was Robson-Kanu starting is what I thought. The truth is, without Bale, we look a little lost, we need to get some decent strikers coming through but in the grand scheme of things Coleman is doing a fine job, a team/squad of players of whom many play in the second, third and fourth tiers of English football and he's taken them to a Euro semi final and almost qualified for a World Cup.

Highlight last night was the Welsh fans - "You're just a s*** Northern Ireland" :D

No North v South clash possible due to the seedings, shame as footballing wise it's one of the less difficult draws for us.

Ashley Williams looks dangerously close to being finished when you add in his club form this season as well.

It's almost setup poetically for a Seamus Coleman winner in a playoff game after his leg break

Ireland are still sh!t :lol: last night doesn't change that, arguably the most boring side from Britain, wait a minute, they're not even British, I don't get the affinity that so many seem to have with them, nobody gives a sh!t about how Gibraltar do.

It's interesting, but I think this group has demonstrated that Wales have been the subject of more favourable public discourse, which in turn has helped them create a myth that they are one of the "big boys". I had been convinced for a long time that Wales were more than a one man team. I'm less convinced after watching
Them closely for the past 18 months.

I was hoping the Welsh would equalize late on to knock the pair of them out!

Was hoping they would draw so both would go out.
Oh well hopefully Ireland will get Italy or Croatia in the playoffs

Was in a pub in Pitlochry for the start of the match but had to go to The Enchanted Forest with the rest of the family - found out we were out this morning , ah well good luck to the Irish in the play-offs - would have been nice to have seen Wales in a World Cup just once before I die , hey ho -

Jumby - we wish the Irish well because they are our best and most loved neighbours outside the British Isles , I've yet to meet an Irishman I didn't like , hope they go on to do well .
Lots of Irish on here , Ageing [ Eamonn ] and Fionn , apologies to others I haven't mentioned , good luck to you all :thup:

Assuming France make it, which they probably will, Sweden will be one to avoid too. Post Zlatan, they have a completely new look team and play with a swagger as well. If they make it to Russia, they will be one to watch there

No problem , Moxy , I'm pretty sure the Irish lads on here would have reacted the same had Wales gone through to the play-offs , there's no room for all this small mindedness that goes on sometimes - I don't like what goes on with some Scots when England play either - ' Anyone But England ' , I find it highly embarrassing .

A lot of people have affinity with Ireland as a lot of people in the UK have family that are Irish, we are right next to them in Europe! I'm half Irish myself, having an Irish mother so was very happy to see them beat Wales. Still I was born in England with an English dad so will always support England 1st.

Sure the Irish will get a tough draw but you never know. Hopefully a dodgy handball won't deny them this time

Really good point that. It's a bit like people of Caribbean extraction supporting England over the West Indies at cricket. What is even more interesting is, most second and third generation Indians and Pakistani's remain loyal to their heritage

Ah, takes me back. I always remember thinking just that about him.

That and respecting how he made the most of his talent.


If he happened to be in the same room as Ravel Morrison it would be like matter and antimatter colliding and we'd all be ****ed.
