I keep saying it.  But this football isn't for us lads.  The only way for The EIRE to be competitive is to play to our characteristics as a nation.  Mucksavagery is in our DNA and so I propose an agricultural stye of football.  Put Duffy up front and launch long balls at him for 90 mins.  We need to bring in a load of dirty payers as well who will just kick lumps out of the opposition and snarl at them in the tunnel before the game.  We need to re-establish the long throw in as a key tactic and Packie Bonneresque hoofs up the park.

Paddy has been trying to be Paulo for too long.  It's time to go back to being Paddy.

A bit of brawn and they don't like it up 'em...nothing to be ashamed about.

Given our genetic ineptitude at this sport I think the best policy going ahead would be to pick a team solely of Nigerian origin players. In a few years there'll be enough to fill the team easily. Add our one half Brit hotshot striker to the mix and us Hiberno-celts can focus on pursuits that suit as better such as bare knuckle boxing

Sounds like a plan!

100%

Our genetic make up is not suited to football.   Bare knuckle boxing, hitting each other with sticks, headbutting walls and squashing oranges against our heads to get the juice out is where our strengths are.
