Murphy: Euros Call Unlikely
Saturday, 11th Feb 2012 08:33
Daryl Murphy is not retiring from international football – but admits he will be surprised if he adds to the nine Republic of Ireland caps he has already won.
When the curtain comes down on the current domestic campaign many of his fellow countrymen will turn their attention to the Euro 2012 tournament being hosted by Poland and Ukraine.
But Murphy, 28, said: “I will be going on holiday with my family and catching up with friends. I’m only being realistic. I don’t think I have any chance of getting into the squad.
“The lads who have got us there have done brilliantly and it is only right that they are allowed to carry on for the finals.”
Waterford-born Murphy stresses it is not a question of him turning his back on his country and added: “I would never rule myself out and if they suddenly had a lot of injuries, which meant that I was called up, then happy days and I would be absolutely delighted. But I just cannot see it happening.”

I would love to be the one to say I told you so. But that is just rude, is it not?
Doom and Gloom – But Why? by paulthebluealien
It cannot just be me but we seem to have been here before. A few defeats and we have, perhaps unsurprisingly, been left with a horde of moaning and whinging Ipswich fans.
Marcus Evans and Mr John by HarryfromBath
Watching the shenanigans of yesterday’s transfer deadline day unfold, my mind turned to Mr John and I wondered what he would have made of the carnival.
Success Vs Attendance by WindsorBlue
With the transfer deadline imminent, and not much coming in, and potentially our best player out, we can only sit on the edge of our seats hoping for the best. There is not much we, as supporters, can do to directly impact the day-to-day running of the club.

Does it work? Some say yes. Some say no.Where are you? For one thing though, while Mick McCarthy is in charge of town this will be our way of playing football.
