    I'd like to see evidence of Galvin being mobbed and insulated by players

    Jack Charlton stated about it, Scholes was in doubt, quitted international football at 27/28 y.old
    Galvin was insulted by english players he said that plenty of times

    with the new ceo of FAI confirmed today maybe that change of venue could be arranged. I would love to beat Rice's and Grealish's England in Ireland

    Id agree that its not the right time for this game with the poppy crap that would have to be dealt with. Financially would it be any different from other games since there is no crowds anyway? TV deals are already in place so would the FAI get any extra money for playing England rather than Norway? Although Im not sure I'd want Haaland rocking into town either when we are in desperate need of a win.

    If there was ever a time for a low key friendly to just have it as a training match it would be now.

    How about Finland? They were always good for a heavy beating to get the blood flowing.

    With our current squad I wouldn't mind there being as little international football as possible over the next couple of years to be honest.

    I think I associate it with ignorant English people not wanting to use the term "Ireland", which hints at one country. So they'll use things like ╔ire or Southern Ireland to get around that issue.
    I think it's often a clumsy attempt at being polite rather than anything anti-Irish

    It does grind me when I hear English commentators say it, it always feels condescending for some reason
