    Playoffs

    Yep. Strange little fanzone in Katowice to the stadium in Chorzow. I remember cars pulling up beside us on the motorway and dishing out all sorts of threats as we ambled along in the buses 😂

    2020/21 UEFA Nations League

    To Win: Austria, Scotland, Israel/Bulgaria Selfishly: Russia, Serbia, Bulgaria please. Been to most of the rest on NI away trips before.

    Playoffs

    IFA have just emailed Lead Bookers with more or less the above.

    FFS. UEFA really are clueless.

    Playoffs

    Agreed - very tough to call. Anything can happen in one-off ties. Have NI ever been involved in a competitive shootout?!

    Playoffs

    According to my Bosnian colleague, it's starting to appear on more mainstream websites now that he's gone. https://mondo.rs/Sport/Fudbal/a1253831/Robert-Prosinecki-selekcija-BiH-Prosinecki-dobio-otkaz-u-Bosni.html "Robert Prosinecki is no longer the national team coach of Bosnia and Herzegovina. This was confirmed to the Sarajevo media by the Vice President of the BiH Football Federation." Apparently Safet Sušić is a potential replacement - managed Bosnia before and took them to the 2014 WC.

    Prosinečki sacked by Bosnia - confirmed.

    Just need to beat Bosnia now. And hope Slovakia do the business elsewhere.

    So the IFA haven't confirmed the venue or the allocation then...?

    No guarantee that the game will be in Sarajevo lads. It could be Zenica, and tbh I think it will end up being there. Not a million miles away from Sarajevo but should be factored in when booking travel and accommodation.

    Precisely. Guess where the media cameras would be pointed in such a scenario.

    Anyone have any idea how tonight's results impacts potential paths/opponents?

    Playoffs

    Yes, I believe it was 650. Though a playoff may be played in Zenica (capacity of 15k, so approx 750 allocation) or Sarajevo's much larger stadium (capacity 34k, so approx 1700 allocation).

    Mixed feelings about that result in Dublin. Glad that they haven't qualified, but terrified that fate will have us face them in a winner-takes-all playoff.

    Squad for Netherlands and Germany

    Jamal ruled out for tomorrow night. Knee injury.

    Post Mortem

    I couldn’t care less how poor Virgil feels about being booed, or whether we managed to impact upon his performance or not with the persistent booing, but the Liverpool fans on here and in the stadium last night who couldn’t put their club allegiance aside for 90 minutes and put NI first is embarrassing.

    Poor Virgil got booed at Windsor.

    Score Prediction - N. Ireland v Holland

    Due a scalp, but won't be enough to get us through. NI 1-0 Holland.

    A LOT of football to be played lads!

    He says that must win games for the national team tend to be played in Zenica - with other fixtures rotated. Great country for a visit, and crucially, would be a winnable tie. Tickets would be the usual sh*tshow, regardless of opponent IMO!

    I work with a Bosnian lad who is also convinced that we will eventually end up facing eachother. He reckons if it does happen, the game would be in Zenica rather than Sarajevo... all hypothetical and conjecture of course! We owe them big time.
