    ireland (or more specifically irish fans) have really created a good name for themselves from this tournament i reckon. kudos.

  4. plops says:

    I really don’t get this ‘best fans in the world’ spiel. HAHAHAHAHA look he hit a policeman on the head with an inflatable hammer, only the Irish! Am I missing something?

  5. Zubie says:

    Yeah – other fans would use real hammers!
    Oh and they wouldnt have the tooled up police laughing with them.

    @plops yes your missing a sense of humor

  8. plops says:

    Yeah it’s funny obviously, but lots of other countries have fun too you know. Why are the Irish so special? I’m not having a go, it justs gets a bit tedious, no? ‘Ooh, look, some drunk Irishmen! What great fans! Ooh that one’s got a Guinness hat on! Brilliant!’

    It seems an entire nation is only famous for being drunk and having a laugh.

    I’m sorry man but did you not see the end of the Ireland vs Spain game? We were being hammered 4 – nil and still belting out the Fields of Athenry as load as possible…nearly brought a tear to my eye

    …brought a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘You’ll never beat the Irish’

    @foran44 Yeah I saw it. Lots of fans do that. There’s not really much you can do when you’re getting whooped and you’ve lost all your games. It’s almost as if they revel in and celebrate mediocrity.

    The funny thing is they’ll all go home and put on their Man U or Liverpool shirts.
