ROI should make it this time but it will be fairly tough for Wales and NOI to qualify.

Not sure if we should make it but very happy with the group.

Serbia didn't look anything special against Scotland and having Wolves as top seeded team isn't the worst outcome. Ronaldo's isn't getting any younger and if he's absent for whatever reason then we might get a result against them. Haven't been to Lisbon or and on an Irish away trip for almost 20 years so might be time to visit RCF. :)

I think this is the weakest Ireland side for a good few years. On the basis of how they played against Scotland though, Serbia are nothing to worry about. So one of Ireland or Serbia will make the playoffs but would need to be very lucky with draws to make it through two knockout games.

We're probably better than our recent results suggest but definitely in transition and unusually the young talent coming through seems to be in the attacking positions. Would be happy to get the playoffs and see who we draw. Looking at the second seeds I'd really only put only Sweden, Switzerland and Poland in the 'no chance' category over 2 legs and who knows it might be Scotland. :)

I know it's never going to happen, but is there anybody else who'd like to see a World Cup being every single country with a football association in the pot for a straight, unseeded knockout?

It would never work and would take ages, but I'd happily watch that. Brazil against Germany in the first round, while Laos go on a flukey run to the SF. Great fun.

They should do that for the Centenary one in 2030. Can't wait to cheer while Scotland avoid Brazil then moan like fuck when they get knocked out by Tuvalu as Ollie McBurnie earns his 163rd cap without a goal.

"Once he gets one, he'll be unstoppable", swoons cryogenically-unfrozen boss Alex McLeish, enjoying his ninth spell as boss.

Haha, sounds brilliant.

Almost right.

As (hopefully) it will be in Argentina (and Uruguay etc.) it's only fitting that it will be the cryogenically-unfrozen Ally MacLeod as boss. The bit about losing to Tuvalu was correct though.

If you do do that let me know I might be wandering around the Bairro Alto as well :)

Small Heath legend 'Stern John in the last minute' has taken over the Anguilla national side who are ranked as the second worst football nation in the world.
