Another McCarthy special...delighted no doubt with that point.

0-0 with Georgia, be careful what you wish for! They are still top of the group but Denmark have one game in hand and Switzerland have two so still all to play for. Mick isn't going to be able to 0-0 draw his way through the group. Lucky Mick isn't a shop keeper as he'd shut up shop after just 10 or 20 minutes of trade.

Mick wouldn’t have got on the plane if offered a point beforehand!

Mick's Total Football philosophy is why go for the win when you can draw three and still get the same!

If in doubt hoof it out.
If in doubt grind it out.
If in doubt risk nowt.
1 point in the hand is better than 3 in the bush.

Meant the Flintstones.

Ireland's next two remaining qualifying fixtures are the 15th of October away to Switzerland and then at home to Denmark on the 18th November. If they lose to Switzerland it means they might have to go for it more at home against Denmark, although we know that didn't work out.

As much as I like having a bit of a joke and a laugh about Mick's tactics I have to say I was with them all the way when Matt Holland was playing for Ireland when they eventually lost to Spain on penalty kicks in the 2002 World Cup. That was arguably their finest hour. Can't see them doing anything like that again but I guess you can never say never in football!

I meant above we know that it didn't work out the last time they needed to beat Denmark at home when they got stuffed 1-5, see here:
Would be amazed if they let 5 in to Denmark at home with Mick in charge though!

Whats happened to proper bloke Knudsen. Noticed not in the Denmark squad

I have just read a report on the game, apparently it was dire, however Mick was delighted with the point and would have taken it at the start, "Georgia are a good side"........sound familiar?......thank God he is gone and we have got our club back

Still some guys in here who needs to be reminded of they should be careful what you wish for! McCarthy is Ireland boss not you or Hurst or anyone else.
