    Still love how in the live broadcast the first cut after the goal was a close-up on a very unhappy Manuel Neuer. He really wasn't expecting the rocket that flew past him.

    I was at a wedding in Slane Mill that day. Had to drag herself to a local up the hill to watch the game. She was less than pleased.

    15 years since Brian Kerr's final game in charge.
    A 0-0 draw against Switzerland that would have to improve to be described as "drab"

    We could have planned for another hour and not scored. Switzerland only needed a draw, and barely left their own half for the entire game. I know Kerr was a conservative manager, but did we really need to keep four defenders on for the whole game? Taking off Robbie Keane and Clinton Morrison when we had to score was baffling

    Gary Doherty and Stephen Elliot up front when we were chasing it was what turned my opinion that Kerr need to be replaced
