    Nations League Draw.. (3/3/20)

    For travellers, it looks like than when they reshuffle the fixtures to accomodate the Euro play offs that the away date in Austria will have to move?

    Nations League Draw.. (3/3/20)

    Looks like that is me shocked then 😀 European Qualifiers Play-Offs and 2020/21 UEFA Nations League Group Stage The national team football windows of October and November 2020 will now feature triple-headers instead of double-headers, thus allowing the postponed European Qualifiers Play-Offs to be rescheduled at the beginning of the respective windows, on 8 October and 12 November. The group stage matches of the 2020/21 UEFA Nations League will be played on the following matchdays: 3/4/5 and 6/7/8 September; 10/11 and 13/14 October; 14/15 and 17/18 November 2020. Friendly matches will be played on 7/8 October and 11/12 November. The fixtures with confirmed dates and kick-off times will be announced in due course on UEFA.com

    Nations League Draw.. (3/3/20)

    This would be so much harder to police with testing than domestic football And the clubs in domestic football across Europe will be arguing that their competitions should take precedence in what will likely be a reduced calendar and that theoir players will need protecting Then factor in the travel restrictions, and maybe quarantines, which could well be in place through the rest of this year I'd be shocked if the Nations League proceeds in 2020 as it will not be seen as the priority by UEFA either

    Euro 2020 Finals Draw

    I'm not sure I'd prefer the opposition in any other group to be honest. Only Group D might have more appeal. Two games in which we can have many of the advantages of a home match is vaguely preferable on that front I think. One win might be enough again. IF .....

    Euro 2020 Finals Draw

    Dublin twice is fine by me IF we qualify And it would surely see a bumper Northern Ireland crowd attending, which would be great. Bigger than in Lyon 2016, if tickets are achievable? The Polish crowd would be bumper too. In a tournament in which multiple matches will be difficult to get to for many fans, I'm all for some of the games being just down the road and easily accessible for ours.

    Tickets for Dutch fans - home game v Netherlands

    Anyone know what the price was for home end tickets for this match?

    Other groups

    They ran their luck earlier in this group with undeserved results against Denmark, Switzerland and Georgia. Hopefully the Danes can deliver the final blow in Dublin. Again.

    Other groups

    The same host nation nonsense that landed us unluckily in a group with two usual No.1 seed nations

    Post Mortem

    I go for the football. I'm not sure what was worse: Pavarotti impersonator or the sound of Kasabian trying to drown out our post match congratulations to the team 😉

    Post Mortem

    I've seen Sky coverage now and extra angles, and there was conact. Also noticed that the ref seemed ready to blow for it and then changed his mind.

    Post Mortem

    Was assuming from a tv viewer that texted to say 100% pen and my own angle at the time that we had a case for one. But seeing it on tv (BBC angles) it looked like a nothing.

    Score Prediction v Germany

    Good value for a bit of fun I can see the sense in thinking if we hold out then sometthing on the break late could happen That's how Team 33 cracked the Germans a few years ago Can't see Lavery starting
