Do the IFA refund us for the blank matchday? 

They'll probably be looking more as we drew The Netherlands and Germany.

Im pretty sure  Michael did set out to wins games, the fact we didn't win them was because players couldn't put the ball in the net when it was needed. You cant blame Michael for that.

Why is everyone so negative about the draw. We get the chance to see and the players get the chance to play against some of the best players in the game. Yes we could play against some crap teams, win the games and think we are the dogs Bollocks when we are actually achieving nothing. It might be hard to accept the defeats but we wont improve as a team unless we play better opposition and learn from them. 

Plus we get to play Holland which is what i have always wanted to see us do [  the friendly doesn't count ] :owc:

Defeats? Don't you mean glorious victories? Don't be so negative. :biggrin:

Oh don't worry, some people can.

And for the ECQ draw.

And the bad weather.

The failure to bring peace to the Middle East is probably his fault, too.

P.S. Forgot to mention the Romanian ref in the Swiss game, too. No doubt he had a hand in that as well, somehow.

We've been drawn into either Groups 3 (C) or 6 (F) in each of the last 11 WC/Euro qualifying draws.

I find that incredible.

Except we weren't drawn in Group 3 this time, at least not first time around.

Why was that?

Thought the draw was at 12.....and only caught on as Estonia were pulled out

nightmare draw even Belarus & Estonia won't be walkovers, 3rd in the group would be no disgrace, best we can expect

must be the toughest group

Looking forward to Holland, did NOT want Germany!

The RoI were drawn in Pot C, but were moved to Pot D as there were already hosts in Pot C.

We were drawn next - in Pot C

When the 3rd seed for Group C was drawn originally, it was our southern chums who came out. But the Draw doesn't permit 3 host nations in the same Group, so ROI were switched to Group D.

Then they drew again for Group C and lo and behold...

Holland have been transformed under Koeman recently and I would think they might win the group, its between ourselves and Germany for second spot and this could be the best time in a long time to play them. Joachim Loew has definitely overstayed his welcome and this is a German side that needs rebuilding so I fancy our chances, especially in Belfast. A five team group will also prove beneficial given our squad size and double headers, I wouldn't write us off just yet.

I know what you mean, some people are very hard to please. Its easier for some to just moan and complain as it is to give praise.
