    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    I've been waiting for years to draw the Dutch. I just didn't want to draw Germany at the same time. Still, you can't beat these teams if you don't play them.

    You can't reason with stupidity.

    Here? http://www.stadiumguide.com/algarve/ A few days on the Algarve would do nicely, though 3/4000 people (at a guess) rattling about that stadium wouldn't make for much of an atmosphere.

    No it shouldn't, and I wouldn't be defending Norwood if it wasn't for the fact that he's playing (very well by all accounts) week in week out. It has translated into performances for Northern Ireland, on a very regular basis. To be fair he has been played in a variety of positions, and the attributes you've listed are probably correct. I don't think they're sufficient to get him in ahead of Norwood though. Not for me. IMHO he's currently fifth choice for centre midfield (after Davis, Saville, Norwood and C.Evans). As for other positions. Well, he's not a right back. Right midfield perhaps? I'd like to have seen him given 90 minutes there.

    I thought that too, but then he didn't take the opportunity (Norwood's absence) to do it. The three in central midfield played well, but we definitely missed Olly. So we drop the guy who was ever present in two of our most successful campaigns ever, and is currently earning rave reviews for Sheffield United, in favour of the guy who has done precious little in 20 odd caps and can't get a game for Middlesbrough? Well, it's a thought I suppose. Currently undroppable IMHO.

    Italy - A wee bit of glam. Iceland - Starting to fade? The main thing here is dodging ze Germans. OWC Lithuania - Avoiding Hungary, Romania, Greece and Albania would be desirable. Gibraltar Andorra

    Do not drop Olly Norwood. Thank you.

    Not us hopefully. I hear the atmosphere is non existent.

    It's not easy being green (and white) at the minute. I thought it was a reasonably even game for 80 minutes. It started to get a bit worrying in the last 10, culminating in their winner. As for the players themselves. Carson had nothing to do, apart from pick the ball out of the net. Smith looked good. McAuley looked a bit rusty, but did OK. Evans was good. Dallas did rightly coming forward, but isn't a full back. The midfield three looked decent. Jones tried hard, but was well marshalled. McGinn didn't do much, free kick aside. Boyce was a bit isolated. The subs didn't really do much. Keep the faith. Roll on the draw, and bring on the first qualifier.
  13. A bit of info here, https://www.uefa.com/MultimediaFiles/Download/uefaorg/General/02/57/32/05/2573205_DOWNLOAD.pdf Are the winter venue and excessive travel restrictions new?

    Whupped them 0-0. Played them off the park, but just couldn't stick it in the net. Thought the entire ream played well. The 'keeper and the defenders probably didn't even need a shower. The midfield, as has been the case recently, were dominant. Unfortunately the strikers didn't get into the match as much as we'd have liked, and a couple of chances went begging. Bring on the Austria!

    Team Formation v RoI

    Very, although I'm having doubts about playing Whyte there. Could he play wing back?
