Bonner has gone 165 minutes of these championships without conceding a goal. Oh danger here

8 October 2005

Well we won. But it was more of a moral victory for Cyprus than it was for us. The team played crap. Once we scored the only goal of the game we just faffed about for the rest of the match. And seeing as we scored in the sixth minute that was a hell of a lot of faffing.

If it hadn’t been for Shay Given in goals we would have lost. Lost to Cyprus! He even saved a penalty. And all because Ireland stood miles off the Cypriots, letting them run around the pitch with the ball, gaining confidence and threatening to score.

Ireland would want to seriously up their game if we are to qualify.

Somewhat shinier, you can see the first few minutes of Serenity online.

    See how my crossed fingers worked? That penalty would be have gone in like a knife in warm butter if it wasn't for them. That's all I'm saying. ;)

    Wasn't Shay great? He was a leaf.

    "Shay, Shay, he's our man." There was definite leafing

    Well done. It's the result that counts at this stage – just get the qualification and then worry about how the football looks!

    Well being an England supported you would say that weenie, now that you've qualified :) Do think that Beckham was unfairly sent off in that match. And that is saying something, cause i dislike him as a player.

    Hehe, yeah! On paper, the England team is excellent. On the pitch, it's a mess. The tactics seem to be all wrong but hey, I'm no Sven! :shock: Best of luck to Ireland against the Swiss on Weds!

    Weenie you may not be Sven, but I don't think Sven is all that. And there is certainly no bag of potato chips about him.
