    That was a surprising result. Looking forward to Holland v Germany later
  • Germany's manager Joachim Low has picked a starting lineup with no strikers for their visit to Holland tonight.

    Massive bonus for Wales that
  • Croatia have fallen off since the World Cup. Not sure what’s going on there.

    Croatia have never been a great Nation @ Major Tournaments though have they apart from the 98 World Cup (i.e. this was only the third time they've gotten out the Groups of the World Cup / Euros since then)

    Whilst they were damned impressive in the Group Stages in Russia they got through to the Final with a slice of luck winning two rounds on penalties and were equally lucky to still be in the game come the second half against us

    Combine that with the fact they've had a few retirements (Goalkeeper and Manduzkic spring to mind) and its probably back to business as normal so far as they're concerned... Bit like Greece after their Euros win
  • Weird that Forrest was on the bench for so long. Against San Marino
    Forrest was awful on Thursday, I think it’s weirder that he got a run out tonight 
  • Germany's manager Joachim Low has picked a starting lineup with no strikers for their visit to Holland tonight.
    Is that players playing out of position or the infamous Craig Levein 4-6-0 formation he played ?
  • Germany 2-0 up in Holland at half time. Ryan Babel seems to have been around for ages and I am surprised he still gets in the Holland squad tbh

    He’s 32

  • Germany 2-0 at half time, which on current form has to be considered a major shock
  • 2-2 now. Dutch all over them this half. Games between these two have been great recently.

    Dutch really hate them though and is much more of a rivalry between them and the Germans than what the latter have with us

    Bet it would be unthinkable for the Dutch to ever give up against them until it really is all over
  • Magennis puts N Ireland 2-1 up
  • Late winner for Germany too. Enjoyable game
  • Sweden come from 2-0 down with 20 minutes left to take a 3-2 lead in injury time............then Norway equalise in the 97th minute.

    Even better come back for Denmark though. 3-0 down away to Switzerland with 6 minutes to go.........they scored 3 late goals to snatch a draw.

    Opens the door slightly for the Republic of Ireland to sneak in with a chance of automatic qualification - Still you'd expect the Swiss and Danes to beat them

    Ireland top of the group. 1-0 with a free kick, just after a tennis ball protest against Delaney, just like The Valley.
  • ROI have a good opportunity to qualify, a pretty weak group all things consider 
  • Turned off, when Denmark were down 3-0 in the 75th. A bit of effin and swearing in the office. Checked Livescore.com with a minute or so to go. Expected a 4-0 score. Never been so quick to switch on a stream, when the score said 3-2. Caught the equaliser too. Happy days.

    Wouldn't get too carried away, they have scraped past Gibraltar and Georgia 1-0.

    Yes. It is hard to make a strong case for them winning the group. Strong group or weak group.

    John Delaney had loaned almost €250,000 to a property company partly owned by him while the FAI was paying his rent and when he provided a €100,000 loan to the football governing body.

    JMPHE, a building and property rental company in which Mr Delaney owns a 25pc share and acts as a director, owed him €222,485 for the year ending February 2018.

    The figure, according to documents filed with the Companies Registration Office (CRO), was down slightly from an outstanding amount of €227,111 for the previous period.

    The accounts showed in 2016 and 2017 there was no remuneration paid to directors of the company, which is based in Butlerstown, Co Waterford.

    It had net liabilities of €371,284 according to its latest annual accounts, which were filled in November.

    JMPHE was set up in 2003 and its main activity is to "purchase, lease, exchange, hire or otherwise acquire lands".

    Among its owners is former Fine Gael councillor for Waterford Hilary Quinlan, who stepped down from the board of Irish Water in 2014 after it emerged he was the ministerial driver of then Department of the Environment minister for state Paudie Coffey.

    There was no response to a request for comment from the Irish Independent on Mr Delaney's loans to the company, from him or the FAI. It emerged over the weekend that the FAI was paying €3,000 a month for its former CEO's rent for a house in Kilmacanogue, Co Wicklow. He was earning a salary of €360,000 a year.

    the FAI with a €100,000 bridging loan in 2017 to help the association through a cash-flow problem.

    Over the weekend, the FAI announced Mr Delaney was stepping aside as CEO, but was taking on a new role as "executive vice-president".

    The role, which comes with a reported salary of €120,000, will involve Mr Delaney retaining responsibilities in areas including Fifa and Uefa matters.

    An FAI statement said that the changes were a consequence of a governance review commissioned in February. It was undertaken by sports governance expert Jonathan Hall Associates, and its principal Jonathan Hall, a former director of governance and director of football services with the English FA.

    However, there have been calls for a complete audit of the FAI's accounts, with Fine Gael TD Noel Rock calling it "both urgent and necessary" to restore faith in the organisation.

    This week, he described the decision to move Mr Delaney from CEO to the newly created position of executive vice-president as a "farce reshuffle" that has been given "unanimous approval" by other board members.

    "This is shoddy, slapdash decision-making and bad corporate governance: this board has been in place for too long and is too beholden to the former CEO.

    "Withholding of State funding may well be necessary, and we should reserve this position.

    "In the meantime, a complete audit of the accounts is both urgent and necessary," he said.

    The FAI has said that Mr Delaney will still appear before an Oireachtas committee to answer questions next month.



    in short they are protesting that he is still allowed to be part of the FAI

  • Decent effort from Wales there but they lose 2-1 away to Croatia.
  • 2 late goals from Josh Magennis looks to have won the game for N Ireland against Estonia.

    Got maximum points at the moment

    Despite a poor Nations League it looks like they stand a great chance of automatic qualification for the Euros
  • Tough game for Russia. 9-0 v San Marino. 

    San Marino seem to get worse as the years go by.
