      For a long time now Ive found it very hard to watch my own country, Rep of Ireland. And last night cspped it off. Tacticless sh*te.

      I gave up watching the lads when Jack Charlton decided that anyone whose grandad had drank a pint of Guinness or could point to Ireland on a map qualified for the National team.
      I know it gave the team a boost, but I'd rather have Irish lads giving it their best shot, especially when he got rid of Liam Brady, an absolute gem of a player.

      The most boring teams I've seen have been Italian sides, but the most boring team in England surely has to be George Grahams Arsenal.
      IMO they were worse than the Italian teams because they weren't playing a tactical game, they were just focused on not conceding, then trying to nick a goal.
      It worked, up to a point, but f**king hell, I'd have hated to pay money to watch that sh*te.

      No doubt! And for internationals, it has to be England.

      sometimes think with England they actually set out to bore people to death. Watching Holland was a joy last night a completely different mind set to Southgate's plodders

      Atletico Madrid usually fail to deliver.always expect them to play good footy then remember who coaches them.

      you truly are are vile person at times. No team set out to be boring, it just happens that easy sometimes. As for England, they reached a second semi final in Southgate's second tournament and could even win a trophy.. Highest rank left in the Nations League at 5th. You shot yourself in the foot really, because those boring performances felt boring when Henderson was playing. Germany even got related! I'm not overly bothered about international football as much as I used to be but I know when people have an agenda to slag the same thing off over and over! England are a very young team and up there with more experienced teams. The progress made in the last year is huge. Holland have bounced back well, but pretending that international games don't get cagey sometimes is ridiculous.

      Personally there isn't a most boring side to watch for me. I usually just watch Liverpool play, but if I say most boring opponent I'd have to say that changes every year, but in the previous years it was Stoke.. they punched above their weight skirting around fouls they could only just get away with and injuring players, they were specialists at playing dirty and getting a point. Worked for a while but when it got relied on for a long term plan it cost them premier League status, since the surrounding teams just improved.

      Ireland or MUFC.
      It's a tough call.
      Ireland are putting kids off International football.
      MUFC kids are getting rid of their kit for the City half of Manchester.
