    Nations League Draw.. (3/3/20)

    I guess there will be World Cup Qualifiers in March? There is usually an international window in June as well which will be lost next year because of the Euros so they will need to make use of any date that they can at the minute! There is no reason for them to have moved the matches the way they have - just play Austria at home on 14th October, and play the final on 11th November, leaving Austria away where it was (although other teams in the final may have had matches scheduled for 12th/13th so I guess UEFA need to consider them)

    Just saw your other post as well - makes sense to me now. Windsor could host the final but only if our semi final is chosen as the one the host comes from, and we win our semi as well

    The UEFA page about this seems at odds with my understanding. It is saying that ROI could be promoted to Path A https://www.uefa.com/uefaeuro-2020/draws/2020/2001111 My understanding from all the great posts here is that Romania will go to Path A so that there are not 2 hosts in Path C (Scotland won’t be moved as they won their group), which in turn means that ROI won’t be moved for the same reason. Just doesn’t seem to be what UEFA are saying. On the final front - the fact that a draw will be made on Friday presumably means that Windsor could host the final even if we aren’t in it?

    Campaign Cards

    https://www.irishfa.com/tickets/campaign-cards Renewal for Campaign Cards will be open from April. Interesting that they are saying these are for the Euro 2020 qualifiers but presume these must also be for / include the Nations League. Can’t see how they can include the Euros given they don’t know the number of matches or who we will play yet?

    Thanks for this, it is the best / clearest explanation I’ve seen about the play-offs. You should work for UEFA!

    Squad for Luxembourg and Germany

    Haha, so he doesn’t, did notice that! Good old IFA efficiency

    Squad for Luxembourg and Germany

    12th Man has Conor Hazard as the third goalkeeper alongside BPF and Michael MCGovern. Isn’t it Trevor Carson?

    Tickets

    Do Campaign Card holders not normally get first option on extra tickets before Official members? I’m sure that’s what happened for the Belarus game - remember thinking it wasn’t that fair on the members. Or have I missed the campaign card holders window?

    Math thread (Tallin)

    Is there maybe some sort of UEFA rule that you have to wear your away kit when playing away? No reason why they couldn't have played in green otherwise

    Math thread (Tallin)

    During the match Sky were giving it to Washington and BBC to Magennis! Guess it’s Washington’s though if that’s what UEFA have it as?

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    Lovely spin from the IFA - looking at the ticket map on Ticketmaster there seems to be an ‘extraordinary demand’ from Campaign card holders to be anywhere else but Windsor Park during this match. Out of our 5 block bookers I only ordered two tickets, one for an existing booker and the second for his mate. Would have taken another couple but the IFA have deemed our seats ‘Grandstand’ seats (we’ve had the same seats for as long as I can remember so we aren’t there by choice) and you can’t change these seats to kid seats. I’d rather not go than pay £30 each then

    Campaign Cards

    Quick question .... how does the print at home work? I have vague recollection in the past that if you select print at home you needed to print out all tickets in your block booking, and couldn’t just do individual tickets? Is this still the case? I can’t make the Belarus game and have sold on my ticket to a friend of a friend - dont really want to give out my card, but too much hassle to print out everyone else’s tickets for that night as well!

    Campaign Cards

    I bought a couple pre Christmas - it was for Campaign Card holders to buy extra if they wanted. There didn’t seem to be too many available, especially in the family stand

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    There’s a picture on this page of the IFA website that lists the friendly dates as September 6th & October 13th https://www.irishfa.com/news/2018/december/estonia-and-belarus-first-up-for-northern-ireland-in-euro-2020-qualifiers

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    I think that we are missing matchdays 5 and 8, so if I have worked this out the potential friendly opponents would be: Matchday 5: Georgia, Hungary, Montenegro, Luxembourg Matchday 8: Slovakia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Luxembourg.

    Campaign Cards

    There’s not going to be much of a refund anyway ... face value for Belarus & Estonia Grandstand tickets is £50. If they keep that price for the Germany & Netherlands games (I’d expect to be more expensive tbh) that leaves £26 for the refund ...

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    I asked the IFA exactly that question before renewing - their reply was that we’d get a refund. Now given that we’ll miss out on a match against a Pot 6 side, I’d expect they’ll giver us about a tenner!

    Post Mortem

    I think it’s the Euro 2020 qualifying that is confusing. You’d have to presume that most, if not all of the top tier will qualify through the qualifiers, so what happens then? If say 1 group A time don’t qualify then who do they play - it would hardly be fair to the Group B winners to play a team from a higher tier, rather than a team of a comparable standard

    Squad v Austria (A) and Bosnia (A)

    Ward & McGinn are out, Kyle Vassell from Rotherham called up https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/45785312

    UEFA considering international leagues

    Think I would have preferred one country to host all three matches, say the highest seeds. At least that way you would know in advance where you need to be!

    Squad v Bosnia (and Israel)

    BBC excelling themselves as usual - McLaughlin at Millwall (which is correct for Conor) but then C. McLaughlin at Oldham (if they mean Ryan, didn't he move to Blackool?) and Jonny Evans at West Brom

    Squad v Bosnia (and Israel)

    He's in the squad posted on Facebook, as is McNair

    Central America tour

    Both Lafferty & McGinn have posted on Twitter about having a break now so I’m guessing they aren’t in the squad (unless it’s a very short break!)

    South Korea

    Still showing on Freesports schedule for Saturday, from 1:55. Sky Channel 424, also on Freeview (channel 95 I think). Freesports is a decent wee channel for random free football

    Squad v South Korea - new faces

    Other than Goss deciding if he wants to play for us, is there anything that needs sorted? He’s not ‘switching’ is he? Has he played for English underage teams?
