    He's just a footballer, not a member of the UVF. Anyway, I think the initial booing was a bit embarrassing but my memory of the Lovenkrands thing is pretty hazy. I just remember George Hamilton having a hizzy fit! Does anybody else remember the Georgia booing(s)?

    The only reason some players were booed was because they played with Rangers at some stage, so what? it wasn't sectarian, just stupid. Same way Jaap Stam was also booed whenever he touched the ball (Sept 2001 v Holland) for some reason unknown to me but I presume it was stupid, stupid but possibly had some effect on Jaap

    Hearts have had Irish players. Alan Maybury was there for a spell wasn't he? Shaun Kelly (Derry City, ex-Limerick, Dundalk) played his youth football there.
    The ball is round and has many surprises.

    It's not all about you
    Some people referred to it as sectarian at the time, read Stutt's post and also some here referred to it as sectarian in some thread years ago.

    Tbf, AFAIK, Irish fans have only ever booed certain Liverpool, Man.U players & those of a club, who are now a tribute act.
    'Childish', maybe, but certainly admit to slagging some (of even our own) way beyond booing over the years.

    However, would like to think the whole stadium/country would have made an exception anyway, for a certain J.T*rry, had he ever played against us...

    It is all about me. This was once a happy go lucky Mick McCarthy funny thread, before I got my claws into it.

    Should the '(Funny)' be removed from the title of this thread? There is another Mick McCarthy thread but it was closed in 2004. Anyway...

    McCarthy unhappy with the unrealistic expectations of Ipswich fans.

    http://www.the42.ie/mick-mccarthy-fo...40385-Aug2016/

    I get sick to death. We play one bad half and were all s**t and we cant play. The manager doesnt care. Get somebody who cares. Im a boring c**t, somebody called me last week,

    I wish they would call it to my face on my own. Because his pint of lager, he would have been wearing it.

    I heard the comments and let me tell you if thats what they think about me and my team then they are sadly mistaken. Im not having that.

    It really does hurt me, that. Up and down like a bloody fiddlers elbow. Im alright one week but Im not the next.
