    I figure there's enough of us from Northern Ireland to merit a topic on this match, what's everyone's views and opinions?

    Will we be able to get the goals without Lafferty? Will Postman Pete replace him and get a goal? Or will it rest on Healy to get a couple?

    Can we win and top the table? With a game in hand and Slovakia 2pts above us we would need something from this game, Poland's goal difference is better than ours.

    Ok, I don't have much else to say right now, what do you guys think?

    Oh, I predict 2-1 to NI, would be happy with that.

    To be honest, I'm not 100%, I was 6 in 1986 so I wouldn't remember :)

    Gonna look it up now.

    I was talking to a friend and apparently it's still quite possible that the north could play the south in a qualifier after the group stage, that would be some match!

    Yes, it was 1986, good memory!

    i hope there is a North vs rep playoff and the rep win it. \(^^\)(/^^)/ only because family history takes me to rep and not north. Hopefully Italy loses today though. that would be huge for ROI.

    good shout beats.....massive game for us tonight and unfortunately i think its gonna fall on healys shoulders to nick one then some gung-ho defending to take the points!

    even a play off place would be great for us....the country will come to a stand still that day lol

    unfortunately sky have the rights to the match so ill have to settle for england v croatia!

    I hope Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland go thru. I have always looked out for their results and even cheered their goals (apart from the one against England lol).

    I hate Scotland so hopefuly Holland will smash them with Sneijder outclassing them.

    Wales, oh yer i forget them, who cares?

    Oh well, I suppose there's still a slim chance but not real likely now :(

    Still I'll be keeping my fingers crossed while we still have any chance!

    I feel a bit sorry for the Northern Ireland team but to be honest they done very well with a limited squad to be in with a chance of a WC place. I fear for us(Eire) in the play-off though, I feel the only team we could beat were you guys or the Jocks and that would not even be a given. I like to see all local nations in the W.C well as long as England don't win it lollol. Was glad when you won the cricket, rugby though so I am not totally against you lol.

    I do enjoy a satisfying debate where people exchange reasoned views based on research and careful thought.
