    Time to go a long time ago in truth. The death knell has sounded.

    Anyone else find it hypocritical that NIreland fans are up on their high horse complaining about the ROI "poaching" players from the North when at the same time their squad is full of English born players <laugh> Not that they are doing them any good. What about Lee Camp against Estonia ha ha ha <laugh>

    perhaps the IFA should compensate the FAI for availing of the services of players from the Nationalist community who only play for the regional representative side as a result of having our country partitioned?

    Well if that's the reason for playing for Northern Ireland, then there is no excuse for any of these guys playing for the NI sides at any level in the modern day, using your logic.

    Talking of compensation, what ever happened to that £12,000 we were all supposed to get for having family members murdered during the 'troubles'?

    Unionists rated their dead on a higher level than our dead, just like you have, so vetoed it. My Granny would have made good use of it in her old age I imagine.

    Well, my father's murder did affect me more than any other during the troubles but how, exactly, did I rate MY dead higher than YOUR dead? I clearly said 'WE were all supposed to get'. My understanding was that it was not going to be dependent on affiliations or circumstances of death.

    In the context of the conversation you implied, when replying to someones attempt at a wind up, that it was a certain NI supporting type of person who was waiting for the compo. If not I am sorry. The Unionist parties vetoed the implementation of the Bradley/Eames report as they included Republican dead also. A dead man is a dead man in my view.

    More importantly, WTF has that issue got to do with this?
