We’re Back, So Thanks Trap - Republic of Ireland football team back on form


THOSE of us who have questioned Giovanni Trapattoni’s sanity and tactics over the last three and a half years should eat some humble pie on December 2 when Ireland’s name goes into the hat for the Euro 2012 draw. It hasn’t been pretty to watch but it has been effective, and we are back in a major finals for the first time in a decade so I, for one, will happily eat my hat in Poland or the Ukraine or both next summer.
