Eintracht Frankfurt legend who who played 426 Bundesliga games, scoring 141 goals (18th on the all time list). Nickel who won one solitary cap, won three DFB Cups with Frankfurt and the 1980 UEFA Cup against 'Gladbach.

Nickel spent most of his career playing alongside World Cup winner Bernd Holzenbein and Charly Korbel (the only player with over 600 bundesliga games to his name).

Nickel scoring three times for Eintracht Frankfurt from corners:

and some long range efforts:

Roy Keane on top form today getting stuck into Man U players and on Sky.
And they're not even playing Chelsea until later

I've been unable to avoid the ongoing man utd discussion.

one thing i heard said that made the most sensse - someone saying liverpool after one of their golden era's being a top 6 side for years after, not being awful, just not being invincible. The man utd fans aren't ready to accept top 6 even though it might be the reality - especilly when clearly liverpool and city are the teams in golden era's

I often don't bother watching the pundits unless it's Roy, Gaz Neville, Brian Kerr or Cara can be good too. Also I really like Sue Smith and Merse on Sky.
Sky had all these safe bores like Jamie Redknapp for years but Gary Nev and Keano revolutionised UK punditry. Guess what? they finally realised this is what people want to watch.

Good result for Man Utd meant pundits were restrained afterwards until Carrick interview set Roy off....
" I disagree with everything he said...Jobs for the boys... what were the coaches doing for the last few months/years?".
when Ronaldo not starting came up Carra said they were worse off this season since he joined.
So Carra and Roy were shouting at other about Ronaldo for the last few minutes while Hasselbaink sat between them trying not to laugh.

I was trying to watch The Tipp hurling Final replay then the FAI Cup Final and the three overlapped a bit so I didn't see much of Stamford Bridge

Extra time wasn't too bad.

The Pats fans reminded me of Derby Co fans...giving it socks squashed into one tiny area,

These League of Ireland games are all about the craic out of the fans.

I couldn't make out if this raucous chant that the Pats lads got going for large parts of the game was:

"both teams are shite."

or

"Bohs' team are shite."


They were still singing it when Pats won on penos...

I want it to be the former as it was a more objectively true statement. Two decent goals in extra time though.

Hasselbaink had a look of quiet glee and smirking disbelief that reminded me of Souness with the two boys on RTE.

My girlfriend works with a lad who is apparently a Rovers hooligan. He'll have had a great couple of weeks.
