No major surprizes, apart from James McCarthy ruling himself out due to his father being seriously ill with cancer.

The one odd selection was Fahy, who I've heard is a serious injury doubt. There are four alternates.....one of which is Coleman so hopefully he does get the chance to join the squad. I believe it can be changed until relatively close to the Competition start.

James McClean is included.....to the delight of many. You couldn't really ignore him given the form he is in!!

I think we can safely say he made the right choice.

Carlos Puyol look doubtful for Spain. Has a knee injury.

Cant wait for the Euro's to start. It gives us something to look forward to for a few weeks at least. I will enjoy it anyway.

Superb performance today.


ROI 1 (Long) - Bosnia Herz 0

Should have been 4 or 5. McGeady should wear those pink boots more often

Good result today. We could of scored more though. Lets hope we can put a few more away when the Euro's come around. The first game is the most important for us. If we win that then we will have all the confidence to go get a draw against one of the other two maybe even a sneak win against Italy if we are lucky.

McGeady and McClean are going to make a big impact on the tournament! If that's the way McGeady reacts to Roy Keane taking crap about him I hope he continues talking tbh !

Euro 2012 should not have been awarded to Poland and Ukraine because of entrenched racism and violence, Sol Campbell has told the BBC's Panorama.

The former England captain's advice to fans is to "stay home, watch it on TV... don't even risk it."

Uefa, European football's governing body, said awarding the tournament to the two nations was an opportunity to tackle social challenges like racism.

It said the tournament was a chance for both countries to improve their image.

Panorama spent a month filming at matches in both the joint host nations and witnessed Nazi salutes from the terraces, black players being taunted with monkey chants, rampant anti-Semitism and a vicious assault on a group of Asian students.
BBC News


Shocking the tournament is even being hosted there.

I had an inkling that trouble might be possible in Ukraine. I remember at the draw praying we are not based in Ukraine. 30,000 fans est to be heading over. By all accounts they seem to have very vicious gangs of all sorts. Thankfully we are not based in Ukraine at least for the group stage. :/


Having said that some Polish supporters have a reputation too.

P.S look out for naked women protests in Ukraine!

It was a shocking decision to award it to these two countries. Violence is a huge part of the game and some fans are not travelling now because of these gobshites in the Ukraine. They wont stop me from going I will tell you that. I am not afraid of a few skinhead Nazi loving fools.

You heading over?? Fair play mate. I was thinking about it but we himmed and hawed so much that by the time we started looking seriously the prices had skyrocketed.

Funily enough, a Polish girl I know lives within spitting distance of the Stadium! Also, another Polish guy offered to get me tickets, aparently he used to play in the Polish 2nd Division.....he has tickets for all of Polands games, the Quarters and Semis!!

Wish we had a few Naked Women protests over here Although, I'd say the Ukrainian girls are a bit fitter

Football Violence is definately a problem in Poland. I don't have the latest figures but in the early 2000s there were 13 football related deaths in one season!

Alot of this stems from the Communist times. Due to economics and travel restrictions meaning that going to away games was difficult, Fan Groups formed alliances with teams at opposite ends of the Country as a means of support. So for example, if Craicova were playing Legia Warsaw....all of the Polonia Warsaw supporters would turn up to "cheer on" Craicova. Obviously, this had the effect of turning run of the mill games into bitter local derbys! Also, the fact the the Communist media often didn't report on football violence meant that it developed unchecked!

I Ukraine the reasons are a bit more straightforward. Often you have conflict between ethnic Ukrainians and ethnic Russians. But you also have basic Neo Nazism.

Having said all that, I think Ireland will at least get a decent reception in Polska.

And Coleman, Clarke and Holohan no where near the squad! He won't get a second on the pitch - don't worry but any excuse to post this





Given and O'Shea have returned to training.

Trapattoni seems to be getting irritated with some of the hacks






Italy??? I highly doubt this is remotely serious.

So what will happen if Italy do leave the Euro's?

Even if Italy do compete I think we can knock them out because they are vulnerable at the moment which could be a good thing for us.

Yep, I would fancy us to get points from Italy. The lads 3 games against them have been one win and two draws for us. I think Trap being so knowledgable about their setup helps.

BTW, hypothetically if Italy were banned from the tournament there is a precedent. In 1992, Yugoslavia had to drop out due to the War so their spot was awarded to Denmark who finished behind them in the group stages, I presume if they advanced via play-off then the play-off oponent get the spot. FYI, Denmark ended up winning the Euros in 1992 despite only having a couple of days preparation! Then again they did have the Laudrup brothers and Henrik Larsen on their team
