Football fans, be full of good cheer

The winning result in Slovenia for the Northern Ireland football team is a truly great start to qualifying for the Euro 2012 competition.

This result - unexpected by all but the most optimistic supporter - should give the necessary boost and confidence for the team to play their hearts out in the coming matches.

So often the Northern Ireland supporters are treated to a roller-coaster ride of results, but their loyalty remains with the team.

Let's all get behind Nigel Worthington and the boys and be there for the coming matches.

Wouldn't it create a great atmosphere in this time of recession and cutbacks if 'our wee country' qualified?

The fans can make all the difference between our team winning and losing.
