    This is why the entire thing is a shambles. The weirdest part of it for me is that: Portugal won Euro 2016 Portugal won their World Cup group Portugal won their Nations League Group Portugal won the Nations League Group A section Apparantly, Portugal even won "The Nations League" yet they are not guaranteed to qualify!! They could even come third in current group on goal difference, win a play off Semi and still not make it!! I would love it for them to miss out, to see what UEFA's excuse would be. Also we have bate Belarus three times since 2016 yet they are two wins away from qualifying, against teams such as Luxembourg, Kosovo etc. Finally, is it also possible that we WIN our last three matches and still don't qualify?? Is that possible??

    Or just as sweet, if this is all going to plan would be if we bate Bosnia-Herzegovina away and then have to bate Austria in Vienna in the (fake word used due to UEFA) "final" of the (also fake) Nations League B Group. In essence we'd qualify and the brace from our group don't!! This would make a total farce of the stupid "Europa League", "Nations League", "League of Nations" excremental cow product we've listened to for the last year double. Imagine that. Some of us (me included) would even neck a pint of Buckfast on YouTube wearing a Linfield tap if that happens! But yeah I'd take Wales too and get Keef Gillespie to pour a pint over Ryan Gigg's head live on Sky after Iain DOwie bullets a last minute winner disguised as Bailey Peacock Farrell!

    You're aware of Jason Robb (Tartan Seagull)? He knows what he's talking about, more than the IFA.

    That's exactly my point, that when you take those points off say the top 5 teams, it was possible the bottom team leapfrogged them, making it a farce.

    No, there was a point where they took away bottom teams results, only to find that had the teams above them lost to the bottom teams, the bottom team could have taken the 3rd spot (top spot and second probably not). The fact is the whole thing is a shambles. As Richard says you can not score a goal and qualify!!

    Cracking result for Liechtenstein against the 2004 Champions!

    Richard yes you could. Also in the previous qualifiers there was an outrageous scenario where results against the bottom team didn't count in SOME groups. In essence, this meant that had the top 2 teams lost twice each to the bottom team, the teams in 3rd and 4th would have taken the top 2 spots, or in a crazier scenario, the team at the BOTTOM of the group (if it was a tight group with 6 points between top and bottom - unlikely, but possible). This would mean the bottom team could have came second after the points of the matches they won, were removed from the teams above them, allowing them to overtake.

    Yes but it could get to the point where we bate Belaruskies home and away and finish above them and they qualify and we don't. It really can happen, but let's focus on winning our last four games so there can be no doubt.

    Kosovo are now top. IF they qualify, does the extra play-off spot to becomes Champions of the fake Group D then go to Belarus? Could four from our group all qualify?

    Germany or Holland

    Not that history counts anymore but Belarus bate the Netherlands TWICE before and I feel they will do it again. https://www.11v11.com/teams/netherlands/tab/opposingTeams/opposition/Belarus/ Ideally now we want Germany to beat the Netherlands at home and win the group, then we need to: Beat Belarus and Estonia away (do-able) Either beat the Netherlands at home or get two draws with them (tough but if we believe like we did v. England 05, Spain 06 and Greece 15, we will do it) Lose twice to Germany (easy for us to do) Belarus to bate the Netherlands (out of our control, but they will do it) In that case, we've done it. Qualified AUTOMATICALLY second behind Germany.

    Minutes Silence

    The sad truth is that during the 70s and 80s we'd have had so many minute's silences for the dead, the match would never start. Best to only do them when it has a direct connection to the football team in that case.

    Match predictions Northern Ireland v. Belarus

    Yes, Belarus have improved a lot sadly. A 3-0 repeat win is unlikely but of course welcomed. Plus, Grigg, Lafferty and Washington were all playing well at that time and we played them off the park. I imagine a tight and nervy game. As I said, we'll win 1-0.
  15. Jonny

    Germany or Holland

    Spot on. Two draws means that a potential 6 points ends up being 4. Germany 2 Netherlands 2 Then if we nick a draw or a win over one of them we are on. Wins are always better than draws (for that team) as it is a total of 3 points gained, whereas a draw is 2 points gained. So every draw from those teams means 1 point gained for us in theory. And on top of that 0-0 draws with 6 red cards (3 each) are even better.

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    Exactly - some buck eejits were saying that getting relegated was a good thing. It certainly wasn't. There's too much confusion over this. Third and fourth place don't get play offs at all as far as I can tell now. I'm hearing that the four winners of the Nations League Group B might not even get the chance to play their play offs if they are already qualified, which is farcical. It could mean we get a play off spot despite finishing bottom of our group, as out Nations League position was 24. It would be like putting Fulham v Newcastle straight into the FA Cup final now, and have them both relegated. Imagine if we finish bottom of the group then get a play off and qualify. It would be ridiculous if these rumours are true. And what if Cheatzerland win their group and the Nations League? Do they get to qualify twice then? It's all ridiculous.

    Score Prediction v Rep of Ireland

    I don't want you to head to the Leisure centre for tomorrow night will not be a blur. Don't tell me modern life is rubbish. First goal in the 13th minute? I'm off the booze mate - coffee and TV for this one but will still sing a song or 2 on my own.

    Score Prediction v Rep of Ireland

    Aye but yer missing thon fact that we will bate them 3-0. If I was a betting man...even Damon Albarn predicts a 3-0 away win (and he lives in a huge house near Ballymena, to Stereotype it a bit). I thinks the Girls and Boys will have a great time and we will play till the end. "confidence is a prefence of the Ulsterman who bate themmuns 3-0" #windsorPARKLIFE
