Remember that game well Gingin . Michel own goal.
We had lost away to Spanish ( Staunton debut 17 or 18 I think)
These guys come from massive clubs at the time.
Aldridge went to Real Sociedad and done well scoring wise Mick went to Lyon ( imagine that) Kevin Moran also went to Spain .
Great times and great players IMO

Jimmy only remembered Ashley Grimes with Luton till I seen the “Give it a lash Jack “ on the late late.
These guys wanted to play for Ireland the likes of Lawerson Galvin Chris Houghton even Steve Highway Mickey Robinson etc
Try that Jack Grealish and Rice .
Some panel of players in that era and before.
Legends of Irish football imo

I think Buckley got a ticket to the game and we were on scholarship at the time around 94 .
I shit you not I watched the game against Italy in 94 because I could not afford the prices in the Blarney Stone pub with my sister that was visiting.
Not a few bob to get through the next week and I seaward to almighty God a couple sat down next to us at the bar. I swear to god Roundy this is true. It was Pail Hill and the Kennedy wife.
Honest to god that’s true and it was the same day the OJ Simipson chase.
If changed not only that day in New Jersey maybe a few things but Jack Charlton made a small nation dream big back then.
By accounts Jack has Dementia but no man brought belief and a sense of pride that no politician could ever try.
These were great players at the time told by a manager to
Play a certain way.
Jack was lefty as he said he always got fed on the left side by his mother.
Bobby was the spoilt one but Jack was the real deal.
He brought a nation to its breath but much more he brought a happiness to every household in Ireland at the time.
I never forget them days
Great times, Finy. I was four years stateside in 94 and my dad got tickets to the Norway game. What an experience but not a great game. The following year I played with East Stroudsburg University in PA and got to see a bit of the country and play with and against many scholarship players from home and all over.

He is playing late 80s tactics in 2020.

These talking heads shows are a bit of a cringefest tbh. Yeah it was a great time in Irish soccer but people should move on. That female journalist is a total fuckwit.

Not alone was it a great time for irish soccer but it also gave the nations economy a massive boost, many see it as a catalyst for the prosperity that followed,

Yes back then we had some players bordering on world class, now many see James Mclean as indespensible to our team,

Euro 88 was 32 years ago.

We went out in the group stage.
If the English were doing something similar we would be slating them.


Lazy programming from RTE, just a cheap trawl through the archives with whoever they could rope in..
