He was s great servant of the irish team when he was in England and always turned up. The dodgey peno wasn't his fault. Blame Lynex for the dive and Carpenter for buying it.
I say Ray Traecy RIP

Nothing to do with Ray Tracey. His job was to score.

Was behind the goals that day with a perfect view. It was pixxing rain and the pitch was a disgrace, a mud bath, players sliding and slipping. In fairness to Lynex he didn't dive and roll around. It was a shoulder to shoulder challenge but it was never a penalty. In the years following a lot of Shams supporters, who were at the match, have said that it wasn't a penalty.

John Giles when interviewed after the match was asked if was a penalty - his reply: the ref thought it was.

Eamonn Dunphy in his recent book said it was a dodgy penalty.

I'm still of the opinion that the FAI wanted Shams to win, Phillip 'Greene and White' wanted them to win, the media wanted them to win, bring the glory days back to Miltown, etc. and Carpenter duly obliged.
