    Joachim Low - Running scared of OWC

    There should be vacancies in BT4, BT12, BT14 and BT15 soon enough...

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    September: we're playing on the following Monday so a friendly would need to be on Thursday or Friday against a team with a similar gap to their own next fixture. So the possibilities are: Montenegro (A), Luxembourg (B), Georgia (D, Thursday only), Hungary (E, Thu only). As already posted by Nigel 82😂

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    I see a lot less certainty, for example: B- three relatively strong teams, so none are guaranteed a top 2 place D- why are RoI much more likely to qualify than Georgia? They're in form, you're setting out to draw every game 0-0 regardless of oppo. I'd say the only near certainly in this one is nil points for Gibraltar, which gives anyone else who can win a couple of other games a chance E- only one really strong team and no real minnow, ie all 5 have a chance G- no outstanding teams. I wouldn't tule out 5th seed Macedonia H- on current form and given their resources Iceland are as likely to finish 4th as 2nd I- Russia are better than Caledonia, but not to the point of certainty

    Agreed- although comparison with 2016 suggests there could be a few shocks. Of the automatic qualifiers then in 1st or 2nd place, 4 were seeded #3, Wales at #4 and Iceland, Albania and us at #5

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    All the 1st and 2nd seeds plus us, the South, Turkey and Slovakia made up Leagues A and B. As a comparison, of the 9 groups in Euro 16 qualifying, only 11 of the 18 1st and 2nd seeds made it automatically- as well as Greece and Hungary, underperformers were Netherlands, Bosnia, Ukraine, Sweden and the South

    Taking this further, if 17-20 automatic qualifiers are from Leagues A & B, we'd be in the play-offs with team(s) from League C

    RD is right. The competition structure is bonkers but we know effectively what others need to do on our behalf- ie the 1st and 2nd seeds dont fcuk up too often I predict 11 League A (not Iceland) and 7 League B (not NI, RoI, Bosnia, Ukraine and Slovakia) will make it with Serbia and Greece. We would then be in League A play off with the South, Iceland and Slovaks. League B play off Ukraine, Bosnia, Israel and Hungary

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    The odds: NI to draw Scotland or the Beautiful South- 0% ditto both Wales and England- 1% either of the 2 immediately above- 20% Nations League semi-finalist- 40% a 5 or 6 team group- 50% for both Manager Mick's Multinational Misfits maintain mutinous misery making Macedonia, Malta & Moldova merry- 99% 😄 (some figures are rounded due to political rows, cold weather in Nordic countries, bears sh*tting in woods etc)

    Cheers EG. Just got my phone to rehearse draw- we're in a group of 6 with Italy, Ukraine, Hungary, Faroes and Andorra...

    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    I remember the suggestion (possibly also from EG) that Marty was close to getting the England job back in the day, until he rejected the EFA's requirement to work closely with the junior teams.

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    Of the 31 teams from just-finished Leagues C and D, only Greece, Romania, Serbia and Albania have managed to qualify in the top 2 of a group since 2010. A similar result this time- meaning that the other 16 automatic qualifiers are from Leagues A and B- and we're in the play-offs Edit- Montenegro and Estonia both also finished 2nd before losing in play-offs. So if they can, we can
