There's a nice thread on our best goals but what about the pure and utter misery ? LOL

off the top of my head 
Wim Kieft - complete and utter fluke Cry
Harte and Kilbane v Spain , the two eejits Angry
Spain in Gdansk , misery unbound , dont dare mention the fields of Athenry Angry
Schillaci Cry


loads more of course if we didn't just mention finals but lets just keep it to the tournaments 
The first time the Devil made me do it. The second time I did it on my own.

As controversial an opinion as it may be, Im still not sure I don’t believe we would have been better off not qualifying for Euro 2012.

The whole thing was such a debacle, between leaving behind/in the stands about 11 players who would have made a demonstrable difference to the players who were brought, the style of experimentation Trap tried, with Cox playing as a form of winger, the horrendous defeat to Spain, the overlooked injuries etc.

I’m not sure we’ve ever truly recovered from it.

I'd agree that the whole of Euro 2012 was the worst finals "moment"

The whole 2nd half of the Euro 2016 match v Belgium. Ouch
 
That utter c*nt of a Turkish ref refusing us a blatant penno at the start of that half from which Belgium broke straight up the other end to score - and it kept going downhill from there. Unhappy
 
Can you still create a poll for this thread now that it's been opened btw?
The nation holds it's breath...YES, WE'RE THERE!!!

We weren’t getting anything from that game, no matter who reffed it and what they gave us. We got it all wrong.
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.

Euro 2012 was a sh*tshow from start to finish. I don't think will come across a tournament like that again hopefully.

Not a hope, we would have to qualify first!

Euro 88 - no shame whatsoever, all fine performances. The USSR match in particular was the best Ireland performance I've ever seen.

Italia 90 - Egypt. As boring as it gets

USA 94 - Packie's mistake v Wim Jonk

Japan/Korea 02 - Big Mick not realising Spain were down to 10 men

Poland/Ukraine 12 - Spain match set records for levels of poxiness never seen in a major finals before or since

France 16 - Clarke was unlucky not to have scored several own goals in that tournament. We did alright though

Euro 2012, after 35mins or whatever it was when the 2nd goal went in. You just new the tournament was over right there. It was a surreal and dperessing feeling knowing there was another 2 weeks of the trip left

Packie wasn't the best keeper was he?  Still can't forgive Shay Given for Euro 2012.    I read his autobiography and was utter selfishness to play in that finals.

I think Orlando one was worse.

You can kind of blame perhaps the defence for not reacting to Schillaci quick enough, but of course Bonner should have done better with the Donadoni(?) shot

Jonk's shot he for some tried to punch it or catch it and it went through him, pam it and he could have collected or the defense could have cleared.

In fairness there was more than just players playing through the pain barrier. The nonsense for leaving Coleman at home etc made the tournament a real farce.

Dave O'LEARY was left out of the Euro 88 squad as was Liam BRADY.  I didn't have a big issue with Coleman as he was young and had a poor season at Everton.  Trap probably overtrained the players and should have dropped Dunne and Given and taken the decision out of their hands.

Given said he couldn't jump off his left leg FFS and was getting treatment off the German team doctor on the day of the Croatia match unknown to everybody.  He went way down in my estimation that day.

Can't remember much of Bonner tbh, but I always think he was helped in fact we had a pretty decent defence during his time Moran,McCarthy, McGrath ahead of him they were hard to get through.

He was a tall enough and was decent on the high balls (Can't remember him being beaten much of hand). and had a decent long boot on him.


The penalty save though I think does gloss over a lot of his flaws though and probably makes us look upon him with more tinted glasses.

I'll agree Shay shouldn't have played 2012, in fact I don't think he should have come back. Still the best keeper we've ever produced his shot stopping and reflexes were superb.

P.S. haven't read his book any use? it be somewhere in the house
