    So at the moment it's looking likely that we will play Bosnia and we'll be away?

    Starting line up v Holland

    Thompson and Flanagan need to get experience at some stage, we weren't to know we would concede the late goals. Hindsight is always 20-20.

    Starting line up v Holland

    By my reckoning Saville and Jonny Evans have both been booked twice so far during the qualifying phase and are one booking away from a suspension. Lewis, Lafferty, Dallas, McNair, BPF and Smith all have one booking each so far.

    We have been so unlucky in these recent big matches, but it shows we are moving in the right direction and the luck will change eventually. I was like a wee schoolboy running about the living room when Big Josh's goal went in. Then it all came crashing down

    New injury. Bad timing for us.
  6. Just seen on Twitter that Jamal Lewis is out of the squad. Balls!

    The squad has been announced in a rather odd manner:

    I've been wondering this too. I've seen Blackpool announce Jordan Thompson has been called up and Blackburn have announced Corry Evans.

    UEFA considering international leagues

    I was looking at the pots earlier trying to work it out. Am I right in thinking that pot 1 finished 2nd in the group last time, pot 2 won league c groups, pot 3 finished bottom of league b and pot 4 were 2nd in league c? Perhaps someone else has already suggested this?

    So we could almost re-run the group with Bosnia and Austria. They would both be expecting to beat us, but I think we'd give them a harder test. I'll tell you what, this new system has me keeping an eye on other groups and I'm hoping certain teams win and others don't.

    I thought it was to get the Italian officials on our side.

    Post Mortem

    I got the feeling from very early on that the ref wasn't going to give anything in the penalty box unless he was 100% certain. He waved the Germans claims away a few times. In fact he may have been the best ref we've had for a while (better than that useless Romanian fecker!)

    9 times out of 10 that goes in. 🤬

    Post Mortem

    It looks to me that he is falling back just as he goes to hit it. If he could have got a toe on it the only place it was going was the back of the net. I thought he deserved a goal for his efforts last night, but Neuer is a colossus for the Germans.

    Joachim Low - Running scared of OWC

    I was reading through some tweets from German fans there at lunchtime, and it would seem that some of them want us to win so that Löw gets sacked! Has he morphed into a German Worthington?

    Sea of Green and more...

    So apart from the home top, a hoody and a couple of t-shirts what official green products are available to buy for the fans? In the Umbro days there were green jackets you could buy, I wish Adidas would do something similar - it doesn't have to be official match day kit, just a green jacket with an IFA badge on it for fans to wear to the game!

    He's not biased, he's just utterly sh*te! 😂

    I hope Gundogan sneezed over all of his team mates before he got sent home 😁

    Standard Bobby Madden decision. The guy is useless!

    They got lucky in that game - we totally dominated them. I expected more from them in the group they are in. I suppose they have the comfort of a play-off.

    WTF has happened to Bosnia? Lost 4-2 in Armenia.

    I see Nico Schulz is out of Monday's game with ankle ligament damage. Dunno if that is good or bad for us.

    Shame for Morris as he seems to have been doing OK for Ross County. But it must have been a huge confidence boost for Brown last night, hopefully he kicks on now for Cardiff.
