Irish team ranked above NI - undeservedly

I've said for quite a while now that the FIFA World Rankings are a farce but the latest one out today really takes the biscuit.

The performances of the Irish team under Steve Staunton have been some of the worst displays I have ever seen as a fan and yet, somehow, the Irish team has risen twenty places to 31st in the rankings. What the hell?

In related news, NI have risen 14 places to 33rd.

I never thought I'd say this but based on current form the Irish team really ought to be below NI. They have had some exceptional results and have played really well whereas we have just squeezed out results against diabolical opposition.

Oh and if you thought that was bad, England - who have been truly woeful - have simply dropped two places to eighth in the world. Eighth? England? My arse they are the eighth best team in the world!

Sort it out FIFA, you donkeys.
