Northern Ireland held by Bulgaria
31/03/2021 | sport | football | 83
Northern Ireland's World Cup qualifying hopes are dented by a disappointing 0-0 draw against Bulgaria in Belfast.
N Irish football is dreadful
Should be one team for Ireland like rugby, makes absolute sense
Locally, "stadiums" are absolute joke, how could N Ireland be involved in serious bid to host!!! Lol
Most English clubs 4 or 5 tiers & lower below league 2 have much better stadiums
How many N Irish players play highest level???
Very few would even get in ROI squad
Copy rugby lead & make 1 decent team

So you get a decent team by merging two poor teams. Right enough Einstein

So "very few" NI players would be in the ROI squad (who, incidentally just lost to Luxembourg), but you think combining them would make a decent team? Please tell me you can see the contradiction.

Anyway, if we're going to join up with a random other country for a better chance of success, I'll take Brazil.

There already is an all-Island team, any player born in NI can play for the ROI, the fact that 95% choose not to says it all about any desire for just the one team. The football setup is perfect, those who identify as Northern Irish or British can play for NI, those who identify as Irish can play for ROI, unlike sectarian Rugby, Hockey, Cricket teams where N.Irish/British identity isn't respected.

A team full of nobodies who lost to Luxembourg and drew with Qatar? Yeah, they'll really help.
