So Mondays after any kind of bad defeat is always tough. No matter if it’s us playing or supporting, both bite hard. This one bites a bit harder than most.
So we are sitting here, 1 cheek on the chair and 1 cheek in the air. Nervous excitement and fear whiff through the air. Ireland moved on from the group into the quarter finals. Not just any normal quarter final but a chance to take a shot at the world’s greatest team.

So, are you telling me, that in a one off game, Ireland cant beat them??? http://www.thecouchpunditireland.com email@example.com facebook.com/thecouchpunditireland facebook.com/diablodcmusic
So Ireland arrived to take on Samoa at the end of a rollercoaster of a set of group games. More ups and downs than Twin Peaks.
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-hkj3b-c1e6fe Ireland got the bonus point against Russia, but could they win for winning? Journos changing their minds about what they wanted pre game, some strange off field decisions about injured players and do central contracts mean a player MUST be picked? As always, like, share and enjoy. http://www.thecouchpunditireland.com firstname.lastname@example.org facebook.com/thecouchpunditireland
So we roll into game three of this world cup campaign and the rollercoaster of emotions continues to rumble onwards.
As we sit here on a Monday morning, gutted and confused, I think it is time to kill some myths that have popped up since the match against a monster Japanese side.
