    Christie should have been sent off, he didnt do it since ireland would be with 9 guys

    It looks like all the players being brought in are in this video the FAI I have just shared. I see Idah, O'Shea, Knight, Manning, Curtis in this- but maybe this is the reason Connolly is in gloves?
    Could be wrong but: It’s not the lads they brought in I don’t think. Their tests results won’t have been in the first batch.

    Training isn’t considered close contact

    Close contacts are people who you’ve consistantly been within 2 metres of for 15 minutes or more.

    Examples could be:

    Transport (flights, buses, cars if 2 metres can’t be maintained)

    Meetings (2 metres should be easy here)

    Dining (similarly 2 metres should be easy here)

    Rooming (was told that players have all been given individual rooms, so shouldn’t be an issue)

    If a physio session or massage takes longer than 15 minutes, you could be in trouble I guess. But I guess they could break them up to meet the requirements...

    Dressing rooms - no idea what they’re doing there, maybe they can space people out. Maybe if the players are moving about enough then, they’re not in breach...

    I reckon it's not bad for someone speaking in their second language. I dare say it's damn sight better English than most of the users on here could manage in Spanish, or even more shamefully, in Irish (including me).

    mate, im not winding up, dont get the stick against McClean when he wasnt the one to blame, it was the ref, and as it was stated yesterday while broadcasting the match on direct tv, the evidence the foul Christie committed just outside the box, heavy foul, no yellow....the.ref balanced that

    seems like it might now be a 2nd false positive as players 2nd test this afternoon came back negative

    it is my mother tongue, and youve got to place your spanish expressions of football into english expressions of the beautiful game, here we are missing the point, this isnt about my lazy and messy writting in english, it is about the greek ref and the wrongly sending off of McClean.

    "The player - who did not feature against either Slovakia or Wales - will now undergo a THIRD test ahead of Tuesday morning’s flight in the hope that he can be allowed travel."

    That narrows it down to the 2 sub keepers and the top midfielder from the greatest league in the world.

    He's living a lonely existence so. Because the others from Williams were all from just being around the hotel.

    The only reason I can go along with for Jack B being included in this squad is that he will start the game and Kenny will adjust the side. Otherwise there's a case for Jack saying thanks but no thanks, i.e. from a footballing point of view, but maybe the match fee is decent considering he's on LOI wages.

    You think Jack Byrne is in a position to say no to his country and return to Shamrock Rovers because he's not picked? Are you joking?

    No, but he'd be a laughing stock among the rest of us.
    Covid-negative, maybe; I haven't checked.

    Why would you laugh? and why do you think you speak for "rest of us"?

    It goes to show the testing quality is not really where it needs to be. At my workplace in Canada there seems to be a recognition of this. If you have any need to have a COVID test due to symptoms, you have to work from home for two weeks, regardless of a positive or negative result.

    I love watching Ireland play and would never advocate for a pause on international football but given the extensive cross border travel and flying in tight quarters required I wonder if pressure will rise to wait until a vaccine/treatment or at least more reliable testing is developed.
