You did a great job keeping quiet about the Eiffel bar.

What a great spot. Super locals. Beer good and cheap. Great spot Saturday afternoon before heading out to the match

Belated thanks for the advice, Mads.  Torvehallerne was a great spot for a fish supper lunch, and had great craic Friday night watching Sweden vs. Italy with Italian expats in Pub & Sport.

Copenhagen will look lovely when all that metro construction work is finally completed.

Until the next time ! 
I just hope we can be as welcoming tomorrow :)

No worries, hope you all had a good time here.

I was at the stadium, pretty disappointed by the result and our lack of ability to score. Gotta say I was a bit surprised that you were SO defensive. Hard to get through the Irish wall.

I'm gonna be a nervous wreck tonight Confused

Was there Monday, soundest barman in Copenhagen and all of them were pretty sound. Cracking jukebox in there too. There are some cracking little pubs in the city, especially if you get off the main thoroughfares.

Not as surprised as we were by MON's tactics from half-time - Eriksen's eyes must have fairly lit up when he saw what was happening.

Congratulations tho Mads and all the best in Russia.

Echo that. Every Danish fan and person I met over the weekend was top class, from the lads putting Johnny Logan on the jukebox for a singalong to the sixty year-old hooker offering us a go in the jacks of a boozer before the game, and everyone who was genial in the face of drunkenness  all weekend.  I know who I will be cheering for next summer.

The Danes, a fantastic bunch of lads and a fine looking bunch of ladies!

The size of the jacks in said boozer, the size of the four Irish arses being offered a deal, as well as the size of said hooker's ass, meant logistics alone meant it was unlikely.

It was meant as an act of friendliness from one nation to another, I took it in that spirit. I know I can be a cantankerous **** at the best of times, but I would have been some prick if I started a diatribe on the Eurovision based on that.



Anyway, 'Hold Me Now' is a classic piece of cheesiness.

Cheers for all the info Mads, much like everyone else, enjoyed Copenhagen and any of the Danes we met were very friendly, all speaking better English than most of us too !!. Congrats on last nights result and best of luck in Russia.

Some craic over there despite some mini disasters. Ryanair took money for a price-lock I had booked for Basle before the draw so that was extra money wasted. 

Saturday night managed to fall asleep under a tree around 5 in the morning and got picked up by some Cork lad. Phone was dead at this stage and couldn't find my apartment so asked a taxi man to bring me to any random hotel and checked in to a place for the night for €107. 

Was out then Sunday in Sam's Kareoke bar, drinking away with a Cork lad when, after half an hour speaking to each other, realised he was the one who woke me up the previous night. Spent about 10 minutes laughing at that then myself, him and Saint Tom were brought (by a Bob Marley lookalike) to a late bar called Hong Kong which we renamed 'The Danish Sunnybank' until 8 in the morning. 

Between extra flights, extra accommodation and a ridiculous amount of drinking must have spent between €1,000 and €1,500 all in. However, not qualifying last night saved around 5 grand so technically I'm up 3 and a half grand. Joke's on them.

Would agree with the comments above about the Danish locals. Generally the term 'A great bunch of lads' gets thrown about loosely but they deserve that title. And I mean that 100%.

Thanks for the kind words. All the Irish I've met have been down to earth and friendly. I think we have a similar mentality in a lot of ways. This is what's cool about football - bringing people together.

Yeah, Eriksen has never been given so much space in midfield to be honest.
