Our wee country
« on: October 09, 2020, 11:30:29 AM »
Great result for Northern Ireland last night,they showed great resilience and the penalty takers and keeper really stepped up to the mark,hopefully can get another good result and qualify for the euros next year,and the r.o.i really deserved more out of their game,they had chances to win their game easily and penalties do become a lottery.

The other lot? At least 50% of the residents of the six counties support 'the other lot'

Banter is part and parcel, don't think it was meant to be sectarian but I agree with you 100%👍

On the subject of sport - Over the years I've lost touch with Soccer but do recall the Northern Ireland, English and Scottish teams, I recall following Ards United and remember a player by the name of Liam Munroe.

I remember watching the famous goal keeper Harry Gregg in action.

My whole family including inlaws are into Aussie Rules Football and follow our various teams, ours being Richmond (The Tigers),

Congrats to Rea. Brilliant as usual. Irwin is still in with a shout, although it will be difficult.
No doubt about it, Our wee Country keeps turning out World Champions. We punch well above our weight.
