    Wals can do this on occasion - i have them them in full flow vs Scotland over the past decade and whrn they are up for it, its fucking horrendous- and the scoreline tonight is not massivey outrageous- Ireland were terrible - i think MoN will be offski soon

    3.5 hours trip in the car.
    Spent all of 45 mins catching up with people before match.
    5 mins after match.
    Back car for another 3.5 hours trip.

    Totally worth it. DFFFD0EB-9FEE-47DA-8DBF-1E633503CF78.jpeg

    Teaboy It definitely looks brighter over there..

    I watched a fair bit of this last night. Men against boys really, Wales had options all over the pitch and Ireland looked like what they were a bunch of championship and lower league players.

    Its amazing how much the tables have turned. In the 90's it was Ireland who could call on top level players now they're feeding off scraps.

    Given the byzantine complexity of qualifying for Euro 20/20 its hard to work out whether it'll be easy for Wales but they're clearly good enough.

    Interesting to see the young Chelsea reserve centre half Ampadu do so well in midfield.

    What do we think of the Nations League then? I only got to properly look it up a couple of days ago, and on reflexion I actually think is a clever move. If one must have international friendlies or similar warm up matches for whatever reason, making a competition out of them makes them infinitely more interesting.

    I actually went to this game, thought wales played some good stuff.
    Stayed in a cracking hotel near the stadium.
    Was telling a few people today about it, they were asking why did you go to that game ?
    it was mainly because i wanted to see one of the greatest if not thee greatest players British/world live, Gareth Bale
    i realized i had not seen him play in the flesh so to speak and may not get another chance.
    who knows if he might come back to the uk to play or stay in spain, he might maybe move to italy or possibly Germany/france .
    what a wand of a left foot he has as well, his goal when he took it on his chest and moved on to his left foot was fantastic and then drilled it like a missile into the net, class.
    Most players who would try that it would have gone off their chest and run away about a yard in front of them or played on to a defender to clean up.
    He also has to have one of the best first touches ive ever seen, the amount of times he got the ball and never give it away in this game were numerous,
    i have been to the stadium once before for a Fa cup final when they played a few of them there when wembley was being rebuilt.
    Tbh i prefer this stadium to Wembley and the surrounding area, love the bars and the way they are set out and a little cheaper than London ha
    I think it was THAT goal as well in the EC final v Liverpool that made me think i must see this great player now at his peak.
    i looked some info up on him and was a little surprised to see he was 29, not old of course but in football terms its a different matter.
    I think he could be one of these players who could play to a ripe old age if he wanted, has he lets the ball do the work and with his bullet like passing and the way he can hit a ball i think he could play further down the field as a sweeper or such like spraying the ball about letting other players do his running
    He will not have to do it for the money thats for sure, maybe for the love of it.
    He seems the type that might do that.
    Could even play for the club near where he was born for a swansong , not sure if this would be Cardiff, Swansea, Wrexham etc
