Chairs and bottles? The only thing we're throwing in France is a party! Think the Irish boys and girls in here need their own thread. Some great videos going about of the fans. Our Northern neighbours are also welcome! COYBIG!

Or is it just reported differently...

Violence before England game = English hooligans
Violence before NI game = fans targeted by locals

One fan even died yet we hear nothing about it in mainstream media

Supporting all the home nations at the Euros (apart from Thursday). Would like us all to do well.

Good luck to our southern neighbours today - I'll be cheering them on as soon as I get home from work - good luck!

Should have won. Plenty of great videos of how to support your country properly though. :cool:

We fell apart after we went one up. All the teams seem to be trying to be clever at these Championships. If they go one nil ahead they defend the lead and try to play on the break. The difference for us was we were in control of the game and we simply handed the initiative to the Swedes.

So much for Italy having a poor side in this Euros,I thought we might do them next Saturday but not so sure after watching them beat Belgium tonight.

I think we've got more opportunity v Belgium than Italy to get something. Tactics are not the Belgians strong point clearly

Italy will tactically kill teams like belgium or england who doesn't tinker with tactics... But then again I highly doubt how they can win against teams that sit deep and like to defend with numbers....... So I think ROI has a great chance against Italy if they perform how they did against Sweden...

Well, we're certainly not gonna do them next Saturday. We might do them on Wednesday week though...

As it happens I reckon Italy are poor and Belgium gutless. A draw with Belgium and we'll be very well placed going into the Italy game. As of now I'm more worried about a Belgian backlash.

Only just saw this thread, I am of English/Irish/German heritage so can't really win.

Sat in my office in Cambridge watching the game on the laptop while my wife had a pint of Guinness in my honour in Ireland. It wasn't the same :(
