The green and white army were of course aiming their question at Paddy McCourt - who, quite simply, was outstanding against the Faroe Islands.
The Celtic star started his first competitive international game up front with David Healy and Correy Evans and could hardly put a foot wrong.
Dring Northern Ireland's last home game against Slovenia the Kop stand at Windsor were singing for McCourt to come off the bench and when he did cheers went up from every corner.
Multiply that by about 10 and that's the reception the man of the match deservedly got during the 4-0 win on Wednesday.
His team mates praised him after the game saying they weren't surprised at all as they see it every day in training.
But in typical Paddy McCourt fashion the player himself shrugged off all the compliments.
"Yes it was nice to score a couple of goals but the most important thing was that we got the three points... It's all just a bit of banter when the fans compare me to Messi... I don't think my second goal was anything too special," were just a few of his humble comments after the game.
In my last blog I wrote that McCourt deserved an opportunity to shine and, boy, did he take it.
The 27-year-old stunned the crowd with his skill and scored his first international goals while he was at it.
The first beauty came after a clever one-two with Jonny Evans and the second was, well, breathtaking.
The Derry Pele, as he's also known, danced around defenders on his way into the box and made the most delightful of chips over the keeper look so easy.
'There's only one Pat McCourt' and 'It's just like watching Brazil' were the songs that followed.
The fans also made their feelings clear about events from earlier in the week by chanting: 'Are you watching James McClean?'
Probably not is the answer to that one, but all that mattered was that Paddy McCourt had a Northern Ireland shirt on and he played with as much passion as anyone who has worn it before him.
