    Could have been a hell of a lot more uncomfortable had it not been for a good save by Randolph just a minute or two before they scored.

    Squad for Belarus and Estonia at home

    Michael said in his interview with BBC he hopes he'll be back for June matches, September at the latest so clearly not a fitness issue. I'd guess he's under some pressure from SU to avoid picking up injury as they push for promotion. Disappointing as he's one of the few players having a positive season.

    Will be ones returned from the away allocation. Can't see either team bringing much support so should be a few hundred available.

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    Always an odd number and just one team free during NL matches in June, so at least one will have to play non-uefa team. From the free teams Luxembourg would seem a likely choice for one of them. Wouldn't want a top team before Germany and after Netherlands doesn't really matter but being nearby Luxembourg away makes sense.

    The UEFA Euro 2020 draw put Northern Ireland in a group of five teams instead of six meaning that there will only be four home competitive matches in 2019. The Irish FA ticketing team will email all lead bookers in advance of Friday 7 December to provide further information.

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    Short answer no. Best to just watch this video https://www.uefa.com/uefanationsleague/video/videoid=2502798.html There will always be 4 teams involved so can't just go straight to final if two have already qualified. If the teams who won each group qualify as normal then there place in playoff goes to next best ranked team from that league not from the group they were in. We are ranked 12th in league B so would require most teams in league a and b to qualify automatically to get play off place. In other words we just need to come 1st or 2nd in qualifiers to get it sorted.

    The only way Michael won't have Norwood in the starting XI for the first qualifier is if he is injured.

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    Yeah https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/UEFA_Euro_2020_qualifying#Draw Poland would be ideal from pot 1, along with Wales, Lithuania, Faroes and Malta.

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    So Germans in pot 2! Who's making the draw, where do we send the brown envelope to? Jumped the gun, Poland still to play so still pot 1 at the minute.

    Playing one up front at home in a nothing to lose match is a joke, show some ambition. Midfield were crap, worst display yet from Davis, Jones no end product. Poor sign when Corry Evans is your best midfielder. Only positive was McCauley looked like he hadn't been away.

    Austria at home.

    Correct, the only difference a win tonight could make is moving us up couple of places in overall league B ranking improving chances of a play off spot if we don't qualify automatically to euros.

    UEFA considering international leagues

    If two or more teams in the same group are equal on points on completion of the league phase, the following criteria are applied in the order given, to determine their rankings: a. higher number of points obtained in the group matches played among the teams in question; b. superior goal difference from the group matches played among the teams in question; c. higher number of goals scored in the group matches played among the teams in question; d. higher number of goals scored away from home in the group matches played among the teams in question Overall goal difference comes in after this, so essentially if it's the same score as the first match 1-0 as everything is cancelled out.

    Would only need to beat them 2-0 for better head to head record or 1-0 could be enough depending on their result against Bosnia. A draw suits both of them to a degree (Bosnia promoted, Austria safe from relegation) so hardly surprising if they played out a draw if things are even with 15 to go.

    UEFA considering international leagues

    I would assume there will be a draw at the start of 2020 to determine the fixtures for each league in same way as this year. Would be a bit strange to limit it to same section A3, B3, etc as just end up playing same teams after another cycle.
