    Do you have the most recent Irish jersey? I hate how they change the shade of green from time to time. My biggest problem with Trap is he doesn't go to see our players playing for their clubs. His is bayern rant was quite something, I wonder would he ask his translator to do the rant for him though ? Ha.

    Atmosphere at German NT matches is kinda shite, though, I am hoping for the travelling Irish to lighten up the place.

    I think that Trap needs to grow a pair and drop him. It makes me sad to see him like that
    You're Irish?

    As for the game: whatever is best for Sweden's chances

    Nope, but I lived in Ireland for a good bit of time and got my university degree there, so I have an affiliation with their national team. More affiliation than with Germany unless Mertesacker is playing so I am rooting for Ireland on that day

    Watched the nt a couple of times during my time in Galway, drove down to Dublin each time; brilliant, so much more lively and entertaining and honest than what German NT fans will come up with

    My mum rang me during the Ireland-Spain-match and said she finally understood why I loved going to the matches

    I don't like the way a lot of us Irish go around saying how good fans we are but this is so good!

    I thought it was a bit ridiculous, too; especially since it was not a secret how the Irish support their team and all of a sudden everybody was like, Oh Me Gawd, lookit the Irish!!One!!Eleven!!

    @Irish_Cules and @Loozy - Yeah to be fair the Scots, Swedish and English travel in very large numbers to support their teams too. In fact the Scots are some of the best supporters around considering how bad they are.

    Anyways for those of you the in the New England area Spain will be playing Ireland on the 11th of June at the Yankees stadium. Tickets look expensive at about 60 dollars for the lowest price. It's a good chance for any Irish doing doing J1 visa's to the area to see both teams play, or for those of you who reside in the area. Unfortunately I am in Chicago for the summer and not arriving until the 13 of June so no chance for me to see this

    There is talk of a second friendly for Ireland too somewhere in the US but it may have fallen through, I'll update if I hear anything more about this.

    Spain also play Northern Ireland on June 6 at the Red Bull arena in New Jersey and Haiti on June 8 in Miami.

    Not a big fan of England's band but fair play to them for travelling all over the place I have not paid close attention to the Scots or Swedish, though they caught my eye during the Euros, especially when they played England (what a match).

    I hope the match of Spain v Ireland will be streamed, I really want to watch it

    That English band you speak of is hated by 90% of their fans, they were not allowed into one of the games at Euro 2012 to the delight of the English fans.



    Gotta love the Scots.

    Swedish fans are usually great in tournaments but horrible at home, the Irish are always superb

    We are the same, our national stadium holds 51,700 but is rarely full for qualifying games unless we are playing someone like Germany. Ticket prices are very high though to be fair.

    For friendlies we have very bad attendances unless we are playing Poland in which case they nearly outnumber us.

    I remember watching the EC-match Germany v Poland in 2008 in a bar full of Polish people, with me and my friend the only Germans and only none-Irish aside from the barkeepers. Insane

    But it's the same when Germany play Turkey
