For Park Ji-Sung who just scored to give South Korea a 2-0 win over a woeful Greece side …

(Tune: Lord of the Dance)

Park, Park, wherever you may be,
They eat dogs in your coun-terr-ee
Could be worse, you could be a Scouse,
… Eating rats in a council house …

For those of you that don’t know the story with this one – Limerick FC have pulled off a major coup and arranged for the great Barcelona team – complete with Messers Messi (tee hee) and co. to come to Limerick for a football game on July 31st.

The eejits in the FAI have said “Ah hang on now lads – ya can’t be doing that!” and put a sanction on the game, meaning, that at time of writing, it is now not going ahead.  The FAI are tossers.

Their reason for veto-ing the game is that ‘third-party commercial agreements’ (whatever the hell that means) are to blame and that they – the FAI – are also in negotiations with Barcelona to appear at the new Lansdowne Road Aviva stadium around that date.

Tought shit !  Limerick FC got there first and got agreement from Barcelona – the Spaniards didn’t seem to think that they were crossing a line by agreeing to play in Limerick !

I think this disgruntled fan in Limerick sums it all up nicely …

It has nothing to do with the other league games scheduled (none of which involve Limerick FC of course).
I mean is your sanctioned game in the Aviva Stadium against Manchester United a few days later not taking place on the same day that Bohs are playing in the Champions League qualifiers.
Or that 2 days later there is a full set of fixtures featuring Bohs vs Shells, possibly the biggest game in the league season.

It has nothing to do with third parties.
Sure would the GAA not be a third-party that the FAI was more than willing to get into bed with for the last few years.

It is because firstly, due to the fact that the game is being held in an IRFU venue, ye will receive nothing from this.

In other words.

Secondly, because the greatest club football team in the world coming to Limerick would take some of the gloss off of the Manchester United game that ye are holding in Dublin a few days later.  It kind of lessens your own achievement, and we can’t be having that now could we.

In other words.

And thirdly that ye want Barcelona for yourself, up in Dublin – as in not Limerick – and know that Barcelona are very unlikely to play two full strength friendlies in Ireland.

In other words.

I await the outcome of this one with interest … is it any wonder Roy Keane told them all to feck off and walked out of Saipan ?

So tonight, the rudderless and managerless Ireland take on the mighty Brazil.  I’m taking bets amongst my work colleagues that Robbie Keane, when presented with a barn door, will tonight not be able to hit it from 5 yards.  And the kicker is that I’m offering a further 15/8 on him scoring at least one goal on the weekend for Spurs, when there isn’t a green shirt in sight.

Any takers ?

At least, for once, you’ll be able to roar “Ah, it’s just like watching Brazil !” ‘cos that’s exactly what it’ll be.

PS : The writer is more than prepared to eat lorry loads of humble pie come tommorrow, if Robbie scores and we beat Brazil … (cough)

I speak of course of the AC Milan goalkeeper Dida, who fell in a heap like he had been hit by a ten tonne milk lurry the other night after some idiot Celtic “fan” ran out and assaulted him !

It brings back memories of Rivaldo in the World Cup before last … got hit in the shin with the ball and went down as if his nose was broken !

Arseholes the lot of them – including the fan …
