    Lauda got shot in 1983, causing a nationwide manhunt for an unhinged Murray Walker.

    No, what seems deep and knowledgable to Paul is bread and butter to the rest of us. What part of Sarajevo was he in when he was shot? Why did it cause WW1?

    On franz ferdinand bridge of course stutts! :P

    Are you referring to the serbs and trying to blame them? To be fair it was a chain of events really but this was the final cog.

    I wonder as the assassin rotted away in prison did he have any regrets over his action as he witnesses millions slaughtering each other on the battlefield ?

    So who will be our Gavilro Princip on Saturday to bring down the House of the Habsburgs? Arter perhaps with a sneaky shot from outside the box?

    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    Are the Hapsburg's the dynasty that died out due to inbreeding?

    or what type of hat was he wearing? For some reason I remember our leaving cert history book describe him as wearing a plumed feather hat on that fateful day.

    Which brings me in one fell swoop to the upcoming fateful day where I think Austria will prevail. I don't think we have anything close to the mettle of the type of team that would beat Austria 2-1
    Perhaps an ugly draw, but another performance like that away to Serbia won't do it again, there would have to be something of an improvement.

    You mean an improvement to get a draw?

    Actually one quick question............if we beat them........would this be the first time we beat a team higher than us in ranking (away from home) since Scotland in 1987? They are 3 places above us: http://www.fifa.com/fifa-world-ranki...ing-table/men/

    I don't care what the record books say -we laid that curse to rest in Paris in 2009.

    If Walters does start it should be up front.

    He clearly doesn't have the legs to play wide anymore.

    Very good article, although McGeady is hardly keeping Horgan out of the team at the moment.

    id be with you on this. This is a game for Jonny Walters to stick his arse into their centre halves to hold it up to bring our ball players in wes and mcgeady into it and play from there. I love long but his hold up play has not been great
