    The last few days results have fairly put a dent in our fellow Irishmen’s chances of qualification

    Starting line up v Holland

    He’d a great view of their 2nd

    Linfield’s allocation was still on sale over a week after they first went on sale. Not sure they even sold out. My daughter’s boyfriend was given a ticket for nothing today.

    Your tactics v Germany

    Score more than them.

    Germany or Holland Result

    I fear there’s goes any chance we had of finishing second.

    Germany or Holland Result

    He’s right, but a Dutch win would be very bad for us.

    Luxembourg

    What a shocker.

    So Lafferty not selected in the squad, then called up and he's now starting.

    Campaign Cards

    You can scan the barcode from the phone, either from the pdf or by storing the barcode in an app like Stocard. Can be very handy if you leave your ticket (or campaign card) at home or forgot to print it out.

    Seems the price is really putting people off as tickets are still available. I ended up not buying myself. http://www.linfieldfc.com/latestnews.aspx?id=21851

    Linfield tickets still available I believe.

    I received that email at 17:01. I might have enquired (not sure), but can't remember purchasing. Nothing new in the email to be honest as it simply directs you to an existing link. Anyway, I've forwarded it to someone who may use the facility.

    Tickets

    Other than hospitality, only tickets left are accessibility and Linfield’s allocation. (Before anyone asks, my member’s ticket is spoken for)

    #GAWUVF? Who are the knobbers in the IFA pandering to this nonsense?

    Campaign Cards

    What is #GAWA is an acronym for? That would send them into hiding. If “Army” is an issue, why do they keep using it? Knobs.

    Campaign Cards

    Unbelievable, although I didn’t take my 3 to give the thousands of new fans an opportunity to go. Those tickets will be snapped up in no time.

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    There are complete rows available and they have obviously only released certain areas of the ground.

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    Just looking on Ticketmatser and there are still a few seats left in the Kop for the Luxembourg showdown. Well, in the sections that have been released as it looks like the IFA are playing a blinder using the scarcity tactic as their main marketing tool.

    Post mortem

    If you do it through the BBC’s app I’m pretty sure you can only watch it for X days and it will have DRM protection. See my earlier post. That will do what you want.

    This should help? Euro 2020 qualifying explained: why it is time to forget the Uefa Nations League... for now Alistair Tweedale The Telegraph Mar 21, 2019, 11:00 AM Qualifying for the 2020 European Championship starts on Thursday. To mark 60 years of the Euros, this one is extra special: the tournament finals will be spread across 12 countries, including England - a legacy of Michel Platini's time as Uefa president. This new tournament format being introduced during the same 'international cycle' as the Uefa Nations League has left many people confused as to how the two are intertwined. It really isn't that complicated, though. Here's a nice, (fairly) simple explanation as to how it is all going to work: How does Euro 2020 qualifying work? For the time being, forget the Nations League. The qualifiers for the 2020 European Championship work almost entirely as they normally would: there are 10 groups (each containing five or six teams) in which every team will play each other once at home and once away. After all those matches, the top two teams in each group qualify for Euro 2020. Simple. That accounts for 20 of the 24 teams going to the finals. We'll get to the last four a bit later. What about the host nations? There are 12 host nations at Euro 2020 (games will be played in London, Glasgow, Dublin, Rome, Baku, St Petersburg, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Bucharest, Bilbao, Munich and Budapest), or in other words, too many for them all to qualify automatically. This is therefore the first European Championship in 44 years where the hosts must qualify in exactly the same way as everyone else. Wembley will host seven Euro 2020 games, including both semi-finals and the final, but England have to go through the usual qualifying process. No more than two host nations have been put in each qualifying group, leaving open the possibility that all 12 qualify for the finals. What about the Uefa Nations League? This is where things get a (little bit) tricky. Instead of the third-placed team in each qualifying group being rewarded, the play-off places are determined by performance in the Uefa Nations League. Each team that finished top of their Nations League group is guaranteed a place in the play-offs. If a team with a play-off spot qualifies by finishing in the top two positions in their Euro 2020 qualifying group, their spot goes to the next-best ranked team in their Nations League tier. So, Switzerland, Portugal, Netherlands and England, who won the four groups in League A, are guaranteed at least a play-off spot. If one of those teams qualifies for Euro 2020, then their play-off spot is passed down to Belgium, the team with the fifth-best record in Nations League A. If every team in League A qualifies for Euro 2020 through the usual path, their play-off positions will cascade down to the best-ranked team in League B that hasn't already qualified or made the play-offs. What does it all mean? There are two main consequences of this new qualifying format: Firstly, at least one team from every tier in the Nations League is guaranteed a spot at Euro 2020. That means one of the four League D group winners - Georgia, Macedonia, Kosovo and Belarus - will be playing at the finals. The second main consequence is that it looks extremely difficult for League A teams to fail to make it to the finals. If any of those 12 teams fail to qualify by finishing in the top two in their group, they are very likely to go into the play-offs because most other League A teams will qualify. The remaining 'League A' play-off positions could well end up being passed down to League B teams. When is it all happening? The first round of Euro 2020 qualifiers are on March 21-23, 2019 - and the final games are on November 17-19, 2019. The play-offs will take place in March 2020. How do the play-offs work? The play-offs will constitute four separate paths (A, B, C, D) to Euro 2020. Each path will whittle four teams down to one via single-leg semi-finals and a final. The winner will qualify for Euro 2020. The Uefa Nations League finals are separate to the Euro 2020 play-offs. The winner of this summer's tournament does not qualify for Euro 2020.

    Germany or Holland

    We need the Germans to beat the Dutch, match or beat the Dutch in our head to head, and assuming we only match the Dutch, hope they drop points elsewhere.
