    Our national capacity for self loathing wasn't as well established back then. These days relying on an inspired Spanish goalkeeper, who would later miss a (that?) World Cup because he dropped aftershave on his foot, would cue hysteria about luck, rubbish team selections, negative play and so on.

    And going to the WC would have been futile anyway.

    Denmark and Spain were big sides then though Stutts, and we still had about 17 points at that stage.

    We were a big side too.

    We were ranked ahead of both at that stage.

    In fairness, Spain are a lot bigger now than they were then. Always a force though relatively speaking. They had failed to qualify for the previous Euros, but then so had Denmark and they won it

    At that stage la liga trundled along a mile behind Serie A. Sure there were some good players in la liga, but if you were big, or Jean Pierre Papin, you went to Italy. If you think of how well we played, and how ordinary we made Spain look in Seville, to how they were in Dublin, it does show that they were on an upward curve. Hierro, one of the best centre-halves of the modern era, came through, as did Luis Enrique. Bakero was important for Barca and Nadal was one of the most sought after players in Europe.

    When you think about it, that was a disgusting group to be in. Spain, top seeds, and Denmark the European Champions sandwiched ourselves, who were one of the most feared sides in Europe.

    Our groups tend to be disgusting.

    Gone back to manage Oldham Athletic

    Oldham are four points adrift of safety in League One with a game in hand.

    Went to Newport who were in worse difficulties and managed to get them out of the relegation zone. Best of luck to him.
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    That was the old rankings system, as we were still not top seeds.

    A massive win last night away to relegation rivals Shrewsbury. It will be interesting to keep an eye on them as they still have an awful lot to do.

    Yes, saw that. The proverbial 6 pointer. Still a lot of work to do.

    Oldham won 1-0 away to Southend tonight and moved six points clear of danger, a remarkable turnaround under Sheridan.

    Surely Denmark were ahead of us having won Euro '92 no?
    Anyway, here's one of my favourite Sheridan moments. I hope he climbs the leagues and manages us some day.
    I think, to answer an earlier question, he qualified through his father's parents. From Mayo possibly? (don't quote me on that last bit)

    I remember it well, lovely strike. It's actually quite similar to this which I had never really thought about.

    Love the cheekiness of this too. It's true, he wasn't really a Charlton type player. Charlton accommodated him in '94 by dropping a striker

    Ok this is my last post in the John Sheridan love-in but check out the goal from Irwin. Sheridan scores a peno and (a 29 year old?) McCarthy scores a header. But check out the goal from Irwin. Too good not to share

    Has to be said, that is one of the all-time great handballs for the peno too.
