And stick to sports that suit our angry mouth frothing mentality, where all blood and thunder get you somewhere.  I think football is too sophisticated for us.
So you've decided to read this eh?

Unfair on those of us with no interest in the GAA.

how badly our domestic football scene is compared to other countries of our wealth and size like denmark would suggest that to an extent we did give up on football a long time ago.

Should we give up football... i think we have a lot to be hopeful for, now more than in the last 10 years.

Player coming through look like we could have a few good players on our hands. Parrott, knight, molumby, connolly, smallbone, idah, obafemi all breaking through into their respective teams.

Kenny has had a tough week and ireland looked like a fish out of water but we're playing the ball on the floor for the first time in.... ever. I remember the Georgia game and we struggled with 3 consecutive passes... 

We win our next game and we're back in business.last two games will be footnotes.

New formation taking us into the modern game. 

Players picked on technical ability not just trying very hard. 

Idah, molumby, connolly may not have set the world alight but they have first team experience and will get better. They're not going to get better sitting on the bench. (This is more valuable than people think)

You've already done that, and more than one.

And the rest of the world doesn't give a f**k about them.

Would agree with that. We're gonna have to be patient with this team and manager, even if it doesn't result in qualifying for the Euros or Qatar
