Healy‘David Healy is a living legend. First Northern Ireland hat-trick at Windsor Park in 35 years. George Best got the last one, apparently. Much too happy and drunk to post any more.’ [Everything Ulster]
‘I can’t believe it at all. Who would have thought it after the miserable defeat to Iceland at the weekend? It’s a pity the team couldn’t play that well every week. Belfast will be brimming with life tonight. Why do I have to have work in the morning damn it!’ [Take More Risks]
‘It’s a funny ‘ole game! A few days ago the Northern Ireland faithful had faces as long as Crouch’s legs, but today they’re the happiest folk on planet Earth.’ [Austria-2008]
‘To appreciate the Northern Ireland win, you have to put the game into context based on Northern Ireland’s recent track record of zero wins in eight wins of European qualifying football. Remember that Northern Ireland only has a population of 1.6 million, and its star players include Keith Gillespie (Sheffield United), David Healy (Leeds United) and Maik Taylor (Birmingham City).’ [EPL Talk]
‘Being Northern Irish, all I can really be is happy!! Exactly one year on from beating England 1-0, with the help from David Healy once again Northern Ireland came up with an amazing victory. Unfortunately for us Cesc fans, he didn’t start.  But he did come on to set up Spain’s second goal.’ [The slightly scary CescFabregas18
