I remember that Oire/Mexico game vividly man. was played at noon local time, in 110+ degrees, which clearly favoured the Mexicans.

was a bit of a shite game really, but the thing that really sticks in my mind from that tie was the absolute state of the Mexican keepers shirt.


#442

Oh my God. You genius.


#443

Jorge Campos wasn’t it? He had some atrocious kits over the years.


#444

he was pretty short for a keeper too and truth be told, an absolute liability


#445

didn’t he design them himself?


#446

have to say, one of my most memorable wc moments of all time was David O’Leary slotting that penna to get r.o.i into the quarters.

was in tears, I was. beautiful!


#447

calling bs on this one man. sorry.


#448

Apparently so! Looked up his Wiki there and he occasionally played as a forward at club level. Scored fourteen goals in one season!

What tenuous Irish ancestry are we all claiming tonight lads?

  • Full Irish
  • Half Irish
  • Quarter Irish
  • Eighth Irish
  • Less than an eighth
  • Not at all Irish

I had a bit of an anti-Danish thing for a while cuz of a girl but now look at me, off to watch the football with all my #danishmates


#454

I dunno man, maybe you had a highly advanced brain as a 4 year old. I just remember stuff like drinking milk and crying

comment retracted


#455

I remember stuff from when I was 4 - all music stuff though

Don’t remember any football pre age 7ish apart from the very ghost of a memory of my first actual trip to an actual match


#456

This sounds about right for me too, though I remember I had a couple VHS tapes on it after that really solidified my memory


#457

I had this incredible tape set that I absolutely rinsed up until I was about 14. It was highlights of every World Cup until 94 - something like 4 hours of coverage. Fucking brilliant.


#458

yeah man, earliest football memory for me was my first live game - Plymouth Argyle v Arsenal in the milk cup. 81, I think. my old man kept telling me what a classy player Charlie Nicholas was, but I was more interested in getting a cornetto at half time, tbh. it was fucking freezing as well. hated it!

7, I was


#459

Remember Gascoigne’s miss vs Germany and my dad putting walkaway by cast on when we got knocked out


#460

i remember them playing footballs coming home all the time at my nursery/day care, so i must have been about 4. kind of knew what it was about, knew who shearer was at least.
