Who do u guys think you are? Look you aint gonna beat Ireland. Don't even put us in the same league as Austrailia. Ireland have world class players like Keane, Keane and Harte. We'll whip you boys...............if you happen to beat UAE.

Talk smack already, eh? ;)

Either you are overly paranoid or you are overly confident. Neither one of those will prove positive in this case. :D

Surely Ireland has some world class players. Look at it this way, Iran also has some world class players and Bahrain upset them!

That's why they play the game! :)

Otherwise, we should only have a four-team World Cup that involves only France, Italy, Argentina and Portugal! :howler:

Eh nope.................there's nothing too special about Portugal. We drew with them and they drew with us. Can you be lucky twice and beat Holland with ten men. Or have Ireland been really unlucky not to be already be in the world cup. Ireland are the best second place team from Europe. It's a crime to see Poland and Sweden go thru and Ireland not there yet. But we'll only have to wait a few more times. If Iran had to play the USA, Canada, Austrailia or New Zealand maybe they'd get through but c'mon. Ireland are a real football nation and we won't lose to Iran or UAE. If this match goes to a one off game you may have a chance but if it stays as a two legged affair we'll simply destroy anyone that is below world class in Dublin

If it comes to a ps-ing contest...

If it comes to a Penalty_Shootout, will Iran have the nerve? I mean, who have they got that's as cool and calm like Roy Keane or Ian Harte????

Incorrect-Remember Holland

There is no way Iran would hold us to a draw. Remember, we did go 2-2 against Holland---AWAY.
We'd beat them anywhere

You guys are too over-reactive. :D This shows you feel the fear of being defeated by an Asian team. That will be a big humiliation for a Euro 2-class team like Ireland, which has some so-called "world-class" players. :D

Btw, don't tell me the Keane who failed in Serie A is a world-class guy, if that is true, you will find thousands of world-class players. Harte? nice free-kicker, but that's all he can.

If Ireland are second class the Holland must be 3rd rate!! Anyway I'd always back a second class (so called by you) Euro team to beat a first class Asian team based on stats and results over the years.

Now since Ireland are back in the World top 20 and are one of the 9 top seeds for the Euro2004 draw in January your assesment of them as a 2nd rate team is based on ignorance. I imagine the Iranian coach will not under estimate us especially since we finished above his Croatian team in the Euro2000 qualifiers.

Any questions??

Ireland will win. Keane who played with Inter(Robbie) is only young. He will be world class. We have Roy Keane, eh he plays with eh, Man Utd. I think they're meant to be ok. Anyway Ireland will win

The fact is.....

I know I may have been a little harsh on Iran, but the fact is Ireland have a better team. They have more experience playing top class teams....like Portugal and Holland. But the odds are that Ireland will go through, given their current record. I don't think Ireland are anywhere near good enough to win the World Cup, but losing to Iran is highly unlikely
Sorry, but that's just the way it is
