    I can't believe that was played in December.

    Playoffs felt so so alien at the time that I guess a game in December wasn't that out there as the weird thing to remember about that game.

    longest 24 hrs of my life. ferry at 8am, trains to anfield, hardly landed a punch all match then return journey home arriving by ferry at 8 without a single wink of sleep the whole time.

    however, by far the best pre match atmosphere i ever experienced. 30 mins of song after song from the irish fans on the kop

    I realise they are bigger things going on today, but I'm still surprised there's no mention of the anniversary from the FAI

    I was living in Perth, WA at the time and couldn't find a way to watch that game for love nor money. I remember getting my oul lad to text me updates. Couldn't believe the score and hoped it was the start of a new era.

    I guess it was the start of a new era, just an awful one.

    40 years today since we lost 1-0 to Belgium, after a disallowed goal for some reason (2:44 below) and a goal from a free kick for being tackled by the force of gravity (6:40)

    Wow, I'm no fan of VAR but I just watched both goals in that clip and I can't think of a stronger argument in favour of VAR than those.

    Think that was one of the most enjoyable games I was ever at. The atmosphere was brilliant and it felt like the start of something. Its one of the only friendlies I really remember in detail.

    I joined this forum in response to that game. I had a different username at the time. I made a couple of hundred posts under a different name. I went away for a while, couldn't remember my credentials, and re-registered as BacktoWalsall when it all started to go wrong for Stan.

    It all looked so positive on opening night for him. It makes me wonder what might have happened if Bobby Robson hadn't taken ill.

    Story of your life on here.

    So all this time you were never even 'WALSALL'!

    Shenanigans!

    Damn you Walsall!

    Not a massively important game, or result, but it's 25 years today since Gary Breen scored his first goal for Ireland, in a 3-1 loss to the Netherlands.
    Bergkamp's finish for the equaliser is exquisite

    Great reverse pass by Liam O’ Brien and a great finish by David Connolly.
