    Well after England's big defeat in Denmark a lot of Welsh fans think they'll beat England now like this https://www.bigsoccer.com/forum/showpost.php?p=5894034&postcount=96 looks like we better put you back down where you belong :p :D

    Reckon it will be a tough game but i reckon we'll win both, Northern Ireland game being the easiest of course but won't be that easy,

    so then Welsh and N.irish fans, what do you think of the game ahead?

    Colm seems to have undergone a sex change. Not to mention a Jackson-esque change in skin tone. :eek:

    To the question in hand: I think you'll probably scrape past Wales and piss all over N. Ireland.

    I would say they'll piss all over Wales and scrape past Northern Ireland. :)

    A full Arms Park being a full Arms Park, Wales will at least be respectable and not the embarrassment they were in Old Trafford.

    Wales will win if:

    - Giggs, Hartson and Bellamy combine their attacking nous and get a few goals

    - Danny Gabiddion plays the game of his life

    - Kath Jenkins offers to have sex with every member of the Welsh team should they win

    - The Arms Park is packed and loud and singing (not chanting, singing)

    - England become supremely overconfident, for some reason

    England will win if:

    - They don't all drop acid before the game

    England 2, Wales 1.

    For those of us who went to the predecessor, Cardiff Arms Park, it will always be the Arms Park. Anyway, the formal name of the ground is the Millennium Stadium at Cardiff Arms Park.

    Norn Iron have so much more to fight for than England at Windsor Park, and if they can keep things in order as they did in the first half at Old Trafford, they can make a match of it. This is a diversion from club football for the English (how many of them are excited to leave their clubs for the trip up to Belfast?), but the highlight of the year - if not career - for most of Norn Iron.

    Besides, they're the reigning champions of Britain ;-)

    Opportunity number 245 to be a pedant and say that Northern Ireland is not part of (Great) Britain.. it's part of the United Kingdom (of Great Britain and Northern Ireland)..

    England have named their squad for the Wales and N. Ireland matches; Robinson (Tottenham), Green (Norwich), Kirkland (Liverpool); Young (Charlton), Warnock (Liverpool), P Neville (Everton), A Cole (Arsenal), Carragher(Liverpool), Ferdinand (Man Utd), Terry (Chelsea), Upson (Birmingham), Beckham (Real Madrid), Gerrard (Liverpool), Lampard (Chelsea), J Cole (Chelsea), Hargreaves (Bayern Munich), Wright-Phillips (Chelsea), Jenas (Newcastle), Carrick (Tottenham), Richardson (Man Utd); Owen* (Real Madrid), Rooney (Man Utd), Defoe (Tottenham), A Johnson (Crystal Palace), Bent (Charlton)

    *suspended for Wales game

    Is this a squad that gives Sven the option of putting out a fringe 11 against N.I.?
    Green/Kirkland in goal with Young, Warnock, Carragher, Neville at the back, Hargreaves, Jenas, Carrick and Richardson in midfield with Johnson and Bent up front?

    I wonder....

    Yep, exact same site, although the pitch was turned 90 degrees. Notice Cardiff RFC next to the ground.

    Yes, along with the rest of Ireland, since the IFA represented all of the island then. Should the webpage in the link change the phrasing? Perhaps it should be made more clear on that page that it was the team put together by the IFA (whose governance is now restricted to Ulster) that won The British Championship in 1913-4. One would think that was obvious.

    Now, should the Irish FA become the Ulster FA and divorce itself from any honours won before partition??? I haven't any problem with that.

    If we feel to get at least three points from this double-header, Sanchez should walk.

    Get Martin O'Neill in as manager...

















































    ...only joking!

    Dowie or Jimmy Nicholl on a part-time basis.

    Why would you pass up Martin O'Neill?

    I think O'Neill would turn it down, not because of political reasons but a big club will certainly offer him a job, but if he was open to it, ******** me, the IFA should be stationed outside the door.

    I'm expecting an easy win over the Welsh. They're no where near us, and their only hope is Eriksson messing it up.

    I'd agree, on paper they are no way near as good as us, but they will be up for it and 75,000 people behind them could act like a 12th man

    They were supposed to be well up for it the last time we played 'em, and we shoulda stuck about 6 past them. As long as we don't do anything daft, we'll be fine.
