The Albanian team also thought Duty Free was 'free'!
I could agree with you but then we'd both be wrong.

Apparently, it was Albania who also had difficulties. But I cant shake the belief that Latvia also had a jersey issue.
Albania was the major one (my first Eire game) they borrowed jerseys from Adidas in Galway. Their physio didn’t even have a medical kit when treating their players, instead running on with a little black pouch with whatever he had safely stowed in it.

Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Irelandshirts might be able to confirm, but wasn't there something with the Latvian jerseys at the time, where they arrived needing jerseys? I know something similar happened to Lithuania the following year, hence why they played in those generic white shirts.

You might notice Latvia played the '92 game without a crest, but in subsequent games they had one, on those shirts. One was sold on Classic Football shirts once.

And, eh, Brazil

The Latvia jersey used in that match is a clone of the Norn Iron 1990-1992 jersey

Yeah, he go the last in a 4-0 home win in September '92. Latvian shirt was a beaut, inspired by the rave scene.

He must smoke like a chimney! I'm thinking like that scene in Fr. Ted after he's back on the fags after Lent. That or else his alarm is incredibly sensitive

Anyone else have a neighbour that's a smoker and as a consequence regularly sets off their own smoke alarm ?

The stupid prick next door loves the cancer sticks so much that he sets his alarm off three or four times a week sometimes. Can hear it bleeping through the bloody wall and it takes the **** bloody ages to turn the thing off as well. Angry

It doesn't though. It wasn't a good look for Aguero, that's for sure.

 Yellow card for me as you cant touch the refs male or female 


Yeah unsure if it's bad enough to warrant a red and match bans, maybe a yellow and a warning of future conduct is enough.

The main thing is the punishment is consistent, regardless of a male or female ref.

Would he have done it to a Male official? That’s the big question mark here.
The context of it is everything

And the context is not good, it was not friendly

It seems fairly obvious to me that it was an act of misogynist intimidation that wouldn't have been done to a male official

Sort of reminded me of the way Trump tried to physically intimidate Hillary Clinton when he stood behind her on stage during a debate

None of this is categorically provable because it involves non-verbal communication, and that's the point about why such acts are committed, there's an insidiousness and a deniability to it

But the implication is clear to the person on the wrong end of it

I can guarantee that if you asked 100 women and 100 men to watch the incident, the views of the women would tend to be much more categorical about what the act by Aguero signified, than those of the men

That's because pretty much all of them have personal experience of such incidents and they know the implied meaning

Whereas men tend to have a vested interest in dismissing it

I would trust the views of women on this far more
