Why is the Rep. of Ireland V Brazil on at the Emirates Stadium?

Will Andy Reid gat back in the squad? I doubt it.

same reason italy played brazil at the emirates

Sid Waddell is some mong!!!


You’re right there!

Should be a good session, anyone else heading over

Thinking about going over alright sledge, flights were cheap enough when i checked the other day.

Yeah dirt cheap into pretty much everywhere, Birmingham in particular is only something like 30 quid. I wonder are there many decent spots for a night out on Tuesday and Wednesday nights though

The league cup final is on the Sunday before it so I was thinking of heading over the Saturday(If Villa progress), the brother lives in London so accomadation would be covered aswell.

Isn’t the fat cunt injured?

Ah come on Sledge, it’s London for fox ache.

Ah I know but it’s a short train ride away, and some of the best sessions of away trips end up being the train leg. Bag of cans and an iPod with portable speakers…that said, it is England

Do you think there would be many irish fans there? There was a shit crowd for the games in craven cottage.


AC Milan playmaker Ronaldinho has not been included in the Brazil squad for the friendly international against the Republic of Ireland at Emirates Stadium on 2 March.

There is no place either for Chelsea defender Alex, but Manchester City forward Robinho, currently on loan in his homeland with Santos, has been selected.

Two former Arsenal players have been included in the group for the encounter at their former stomping ground - Roma forward Julio Baptista and Panathinaikos midfielder Gilberto Silva.

Barcelona full-back Dani Alves has also been named in the squad despite being injured. The 26-year-old was a late withdrawal from the team for Saturday’s Primera Division clash with Getafe after he felt a pain in his calf during the warm-up which was expected to sideline him for three weeks.

Surprised Keith Fahy didn’t get a callup as he has been starting for Birmingham lately.

Presume a friendly cap for McCarthy will be on the way. That ties you down still doesn’t it?

I don’t think it does.

I think you’re right actually.
