Was 10 years ago yesterday

Good article from Dan McDonnell in the Indo

http://www.independent.ie/sport/soccer/international-soccer/ten-years-on-from-grim-night-for-the-gaffer-in-san-marino-35433166.html

An interesting snippet or two in it

7 of the ten man board from that period are still on it shock horror...

Also the game Long made his debut

I see our great leader was as spineless then as he is now...

Delaney eventually appeared on Today FM. "I speak on behalf of the FAI but I didn't make the decision to appoint Bobby and Steve on my own", he declared, pointing out it was the board's call.

You know yourself Podge, when the sh*t hits the fan everyone gets the blame, when we draw the aces Delaney takes the praise.

That's hardly Zeno behind the 'Delaney Out' banner?

I could agree with you but then we'd both be wrong.

2500 made that trip?
 
Would be a nice June or September away trip if we got them again in qualifiers. Would do the week in Italy.

Feck, hard to believe its 10 years ago!
I`ll freely admit I was willing San Marino to hold on for the draw, it would have been massive for them and it would've helped us get rid of Stan.
 
The thing that stands out for me was a few weeks before the match Mario Rosenstock did an almost prophetic skint on the radio set a couple of years after the match where he was interviewing Ireland manager Roy Keane about the infamous draw in San Marino.
It was all supposed to be mad stuff to make you laugh because of course we could never draw with San Marino and Keane could never have any part in an Irish set up.

Same here. Was actually slightly raging when Stephen Ireland got the winner as it got JD off the hook. No way could Stan have survived if it had remained 1-1

An awful night. I was fuming when the players celebrated the winner. San Marion were robbed as well. The ref played about 30 seconds more injury time than what the 4th official held up. It should have been blown up when San Marino cleared it for the throw in that led to our second goal.


One of the very low points in my almost 30 years following Ireland.

@Bitored & Denis Irwin

I was embarrassingly jumping round the house with relief when we got the winner but no matter what you think of the manager or Delaney, I can't fathom how you wouldn't want us to win. Supporting Ireland should be unconditional and above factors like the manager, or CEO of the FAI or because Roy Keane wasn't playing etc etc  It's the same mentality that hope we would fail under Trap if it mean't getting rid of him.

Ya it was a surreal feeling when Ireland scored,  I was gutted for San Marino. I had  given up qualification hopes long before the game so I was just hoping a rock bottom result like that would shake the sh1t out of Irish football.

What an up and down trip that was. Defo great to see somewhere new though as Sham says, Rimini would have been a far better place to visit in June. Cracking kick around in the car park before the game followed by a few cans. Nobody told the locals about UEFA regulations as they were selling cans out of a trolley in the ground ! One toilet was never going to be enough for everyone so we can told by the cops to go out of the ground at half time and p1ss against the side of the national sports centre !
Too much Vodka red bull drank in some English bar that night - Ended up leaving the San Marino shirt I bought there and had to go back to try and find it ! 12 hour delay on the flight back the next day due to snow in London !

Remember the game being awful - Remember having a serious moan to Stephen Hunt's parents on the way out (didn't know who they were at that stage). Really did feel like the start of the end for Stan that night.

Honestly fcuk San Marino. Let them worry about themselves.
 
You'd be quiet happy for us to have had another 'Leichenstein' and forever be associated with an embarrassing draw in San Marino that would make us a laughing stock?! Confused
 
I can understand the lads on here not attending Ireland games due their bad treatment by the FAI but to not want the team to win 100% of the time just means you can't possibly call yourself an Irish supporter/fan as it's conditional on certain factors manager/CEO/state of Irish football.

It was a f**king sh*t show muff. JD didn't give two f**ks then and doesn't give two f**ks now. The ends would have justified the means and I'll make no apology for it.(FWIW I didn't wish for anything other than a win before the start of the game) We were promised a "World Class manager" by the dear leader after Kerr was sacked and he gave the job to Staunton who had f**k all managerial or coaching experience (Don't blame Staunton for taking it btw who wouldn't want the chance to manage their country. It was evident after the game in Cyprus that Staunton was way out of his depth IMO. The draw against the Czechs and the 5-0 win over San Marino merely paperd over the cracks IMO.

The FAI had invited a delegation of League of Ireland managers on the trip as they had just taken over the running of the league.

A couple of the bosses were slightly taken aback by the uninspiring nature of the Irish warm-up; they didn't expect to see elite players preparing for a European Championship qualifier by participating in a drill that involved a bit of piggybacking.


WTF LOL


edit: Who was carrying Dunne?

The players preferred this is watching DVDs studying the opposition.
