How are you watching this? the iplayer doesn't work for me in Ireland.

Randomly watched that last weekend, nice documentary. Weird that it didn't show the first two games of the campaign against Albania and Latvia other then just showing the results via Newspaper articles.

Another thing which I've always wondered how were we allowed to be in the same group as the North given the troubles? When you look at qualifying now a lot of countries are kept apart.

I would say I have watched this documentary over 1000 times. Used to have it on constantly during the 90s.   That and Que Sera Sera are great documentaries.  

Who would have thought that the Saw Doctors song  to win just once would become Prose rather than poetry. 

That team had so many leaders and potential captains.  Moran, McGrath, Keane, Townsend, Whelan, Staunton.  Real
Leaders.  

Saying that we were lucky in that our only win against any of the top 3/4 teams was at home to NI.  

That “consolidation” goal Sheridan got at home to Spain proved vital. Wouldn’t be the last time in that whole
Campaign that a consolation goal would prove vital.

I think there was talk at one stage might have been in the aftermath of Shankill and Greysteel of the match in November 93 being moved to Munich or somewhere like Anfield or Old Trafford on security grounds.

Would have been an ideal double header, 300km between the capitals

McGrath got a goal against Latvia after he had gone awol for the game against Albania.  That must have been some fear he had after the Albania game and his week in Israel.

The Albania game wasn't broadcast at all on irish TV as there was a dispute over the pricing of the rights. Similar to Turkey playoff game.

Seem to recall family members watching the Albania game in the Submarine via some unofficial satellite source.

Have no memories of watching any of the Euro 92 qualifiers at all. Have a vague recollection of the shootout against Romania. Next Ireland memory after that is the Latvia game

Remember listening to the Albania match on the radio. Same craic with Turkey in 1999.
