    Campaign Cards

    Plenty of Estonians at our last meeting. Was chatting to a bunch of them who now live in Glasgow and are rangers season ticket holders.

    Flights

    The cheaper options left seem to require 6am flights from Dublin and Tallinn though 😴. Daytime flights around £250. Glad I got in reasonably early for £170.

    Game to be played in Rotterdam

    Has the ko time also been confirmed?

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    Haven't looked, but at the very least I would expect it to be on rte as it's in Dublin.

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    Oh yes. That was some trip. Travelled up from Portadown to Belfast, met up with a Shankill Club in Denmark Street who had a bus organised to take us to Larne. Then bus down to Harwich, overnight ferry to the Hook of Holland, then bus up to Hamburg. Part of the trip back was a visit to OT where we seen United beat Watford 4-1 (Stapleton hattrick, one with each foot and a header, and Mo Johnston scoring for Watford). I'm no United fan but went along anyway wearing a Germany scarf I'd exchanged in Hamburg, little realising that it was Watford colours!!!

    Certainly haven't. I was at both. I'd prefer to save them for the next WC campaign as pot 1 seeds though 😉

    So you'd prefer one of the most difficult groups possible then Stephen? Why not just make a separate trip to Oktoberfest.

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    They're nothing special, but I can see them beating everyone else in that mythical group home and away. I just think that we could get another result against them.

    Yes, which is why I wrote it 😋

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    Based on the likely groups we definitely want to avoid Germany. I think we'd have a great chance of qualifying from a 5 team group containing England, Iceland, Lithuania and Gibraltar. We can upset England in Belfast (draw) and Iceland are on the decline. From a travelling and/or teams/countries I'd like to see or return to point of view, I'd be happy with Holland, anyone in pot 2 bar Russia or Ukraine, Estonia, Gibraltar and Malta.

    Austria at home.

    Likewise. I think the applause is the better option, although obviously not for things like remembrance day.

    And I'll be on a plane to / stuck in Fuerteventura that day instead of sitting beside my computer with Skyscanner waiting patiently for news...... I know, bad planning on my part

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    They don't. Fixtures are now automatically generated by UEFA. This was also the case for the last draw, but I can't recall how soon they did this.

    It was pretty obvious it was for Derek McKinley as his photo was up on the big screen at the time.

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    I'd reckon so. Also interesting that a country with a host city can only be drawn against one other host country to ensure that all hosts have a chance of qualifying (i.e. the republic can't draw both Spain and Germany). That's good for the republic and Scotland but means there's more chance of us getting a tougher group.

    Scotland

    Hope we get a gift of a group like theirs for the next nation's league...

    Has anyone who's on the ball when it comes to calculating the ranking points worked out if a win today makes any difference to which pot we'll be in for the draw in December?

    Scotland

    That's the rules, and I wouldn't be too quick to knock it. We'd have loved to have had such an opportunity in the not so distant past and will be grateful of this set up at some stage in future.

    I've a tenner on it so even less likely............

    2-1 OWC 👍 (11/1)

    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    Just doing the job they're paid for. Did they see how it started? If so why no arrests? Edit: just re-read your post. Missed the jist of it 😕
