I doubt visas will be an issue but Large Dominick could set up a stall on the Spanish side of the border selling Visas, I bet he'd catch a few...

Gibraltar must be delighted to be playing us considering the teams they could have drawn.

Mc Carthy doesn't inspire too much confidence in me, it was He that ran to the press back in the Saipan 2002 days whenever he had an issue with Keane.
Granted they were both like Babies throwing their toys out of the pram, but it was Keane's dismissal rather than Mc Carthy's leadership (which he took full credit fer) which inspired the Boy's in Green in to a last 16 spot, then they played Spain off the field, Ian Harte even missing a penalty, only to lose out in a penalty shoot-out.
There were players on that team that night that had never ever played like that before (Gary Breen being a prime example) a moderate player in his day and a journeyman, but he put in some performance that night and it wasn't Mc Carthy that inspired them, it was Keane's dismissal that inspired them.

Mc Carthy was a moderate enough player in his day and his nick-name as a defender was "Bite me Legs" which kinda speaks fer itself.
His own one international claim to fame was the magnificent long throw-in he took against the USSR in the Euros of 1998 which landed at Ronnie Whelan's foot where he then volleyed it in to the top Right hand corner of the USSR net !! And as far as I can remember that was Mc Carthy's only ever inspiring moment and he has being living off that Once off Throw ever since.

Below is a 1.29 min utube video of that same Throw, sorry that it is in a 'Yaki-Da' language;

Granted, I'm good at talkin' Shite 'n Bollox Hal, but to compare me to the Erm ?
I'm not fit to tie his shoe-laces !!

I've met the Erm in person, the man is a walking Pantomine, ya never know what he will come out with next ?
One minute he is up chatting up the barmaid usually Forty years his junior and having her in stitches laughing
and the next he is sat at our table talking deep politics about border crossing's !

Bad news for travelling Irish fans as Gibraltar reveal plans to play Mick McCarthy's first game on home soil

Daniel McDonnell 
December 4 2018 5:45 PM
 
GIBRALTAR have informed the FAI that they plan to host their opening Euro 2020 qualifier with Ireland on home soil.
And that will mean that the Irish travelling support at the 2,300 capacity Victoria Stadium is likely to be restricted to just 300.

Irish demand for the March 23 encounter is sure to be much higher given it's the first match of Mick McCarthy's second stint in charge.

The FAI are currently working through the logistics of the match venue with their counterparts in Gibraltar.

Three years ago, Ireland played the international newcomers in Portugal as they had no suitable venue.

Victoria Stadium still falls short of UEFA requirements, but they did get dispensation to play their UEFA Nations League matches there.
