Ireland defensively in that match were outstanding.  Paul McGrath obviously MoM but a shout out to Dennis Irwin and Roy Keane who were also excellent I thought.  Babb got a bit lucky with that penalty call mind, but even then Ireland had the better chances and could added a second.

Hard to watch the game and not think about Loughinisland which I believe happened at the start of the 2nd half.  RIP.

Was it the 94 game on tonight? I thought it was 90 QF match that was supposed to be on?

sh*te I forgot this was on.  Would have liked to have seen it again.  My own memories from the time was that it was a fairly tight dull game with not many chances either end.  I think our only chance was a header which Zenga made a over exaggerrated diving catch.
Disregard the ice warnings and proceed full steam ahead. We are making great time. I want that trans Atlantic record! And turn off that bloody infernal Morse Code system!

I was in Italy for all but the last game as I said before not staying. On was biggest mistake I ever made.

Ireland were a far better team than some journalists now give them credit for and it wasn’t all hoofball . Probably the best Irish Team of all and bar the Egypt game I was surprised to see how good we were as this was the first time I got  the chance to watch all 5 games.

It's harder to watch now!

not a hope, i'd even debate with you that Euro 2016 performance was better than 88 or 90 due to the poor quality and standard of football back then. too many lads with rose tinted glasses of past players and teams.

I struggle with football now. No aggression and no passion. The EPL is three-quarter placed.Each to their own, but I would argue that there hasn't been a truly great football match in the past twenty years.

I looked at the whole Liverpool v Everton 1989 FA Cup Final again as it was on Eir Sport.   My memories were that it was a great game and good football.  The reality was the football was very basic and scrappy although more exciting in a way.  Didn't seem to be much in the way of tactics.  Backpass to the keeper who would pick it up.  Then kick it up to the forwards and then there was a scrappy exchange to win the ball which hit off someones head.  This was the primary tactic of both sides.  Not much passing on display. More physical tackles.  Football was way more direct back then even for Liverpool who had a reputation as a good footballing side.

When you watch a game from old there is no passion or tension in it and unless it’s an absolute classic with sublime skills it won’t be exciting to watch.  Our games at the time were sh*te and anyone who knew anything about football would say the same but the tension was incredible and the journey for the supporters and country was a huge part of it.  The football wasn’t great at all. Now it’s terrible football and very little tension too. Ireland are as bad as ever to watch.  If you try watching our games from 2012 to 2019 over and over again they will be sh*te too. Very few neutrals would ever recall an Ireland game as a classic.  I think France v Ireland at state de France in 2009 would have gripped neutrals but not many more.

90% of football games are terrible! That's what makes the others so special.

Our midfield went awol for the Italian goal. Was non existent. McGrath was our deepest player when the ball hit the net. Needed him further forward to break up that attack,like he had done up till then. So it’s all McGraths fault

Only watched bits of it last night to be honest , strange looking back after all these years and i can't remember most of the games only bits .
 Loads of tension before the game now game time it started to crank up , i was standing right next to the Italians as only the gangway was between us they did seem to think all they had to do was turn up and the game was won . After 20 minutes we did well you could feel it their fans went happy this could really turn nasty i was thinking offsides goal ruled out this one lad pointed right at me and shouted Basdardo , hey must have been the lad next to me as Mum and Dad said they were married when they had me .
Anyway they scored around 36th minute and everything kind of relaxed , they knew they could lock up shop and they did . If we held out until HT and 15 minutes beyond it could have got to their players who knows . 
Anyway we hung around until Jack came out after the game then i headed back to the camp ground they were in full party mode , it would have been a hell of a lot different if we would have won i think they would have killed some of us . 
I was at thew semi final in Naples i really did think i was going to be killed but that's another story for another time .

that Irish side was very good, went toe to toe with a world football heavyweight at the time and matched them all night. Hands teams from 81 to 85 were great to watch in most games but that side of jacks was really strong.
