In ease of any misgivings you may have over Brexit the disappointment you may feel following your defeat to Iceland, at least, being British, you may now offer your unbridled support to the Scotsman in the tennis and the Welsh later this evening.
Dunphy is generally outspoken. If, as many (but not him) expect, Ireland fail to qualify from their group, he's already got his knives sharpened.
There were some media comments that Martin O'Neill hadn't signed a new contract and was keeping his options open, and others which suggest the present management have gone off to France with a new contract in their pocket.
I had a friendly pint with a "well placed source" who believes Mick will be the next man at the helm for Ireland after O'Neill. I'm not so sure.

Having scored the winning penalty, he strips off his shirt and shows off his pecks, abs, tan etc to the fans. He could have left his shirt on and ran to his teammates. A telling observation from a pundit that I picked up on.
Mick was interviewed by Tony O'Donoghue (RTE) today. Asked about Ireland job as O'Neill hasn't signed new contract. Didn't rule it out and referred to working where is wanted. Referred to 2 years left on contract with Ipswich. I'll link a report later or tomorrow if I'm not beaten to it.
I read today that this year, the top 1% of people in the world have more combined wealth that the bottom 99%. And that the wealthiest 60 people in the world own more than the bottom half combined (3.5 Billion people).
It goes without saying I hope we win tonight, not only for the 3 points and overall good feeling it will give me, but because I'm a bit worried about how momentum and Leeds could become a dangerous cocktail in terms of the playoff picture. Their manager is the essence of huff and puff.
Believe me my friends, Portsmouth is history. Tonight is high stakes.
