It’s about the only thing that was in the first half.

You are not wrong Eamonn it was fucking dreadful I thought I was watching England again.

It’s like penance watching them.
I can’t help it I have to watch, but Christ I hope there’s a reward in heaven waiting for me. There better be or I’ll be rightly pissed off when I die. Which could happen prematurely from watching this shite.

We just don’t have any footballers.
Which is a setback in a football team.


international breaks serve as timely reminders as to why we need foreign players in the league.

Half our team are foreign, a lot on here would argue, but it doesn’t seem to help.

God. I didn’t realise Wales were as bad as that.

Well as Nidge said. Two more games to enjoy.

Could do with one or two from the past to help things along. We never were possession based team but we had a lot better players in the past.
However, I’d never doubt the courage or conviction of this team.
It’s not easy on the eye though and bad for the heart..... and the liver, as they’d drive you to drink.

Watching City week in week out and then watching this, it’s like a totally different sport.
Felt sorry for that poor Welsh kid crying at the end.

Tonights game on ITV4 19.45 is worth a watch Sweden v Holland.

Sure i read Holland have to win 7-0 to qualify.

Amazing how far the Dutch team has regressed.

^^^ There isn't more internationals tonight is there. It seems like its been going on forever..... the pure boredom of it gets a bit overwhelming, and now there is a load of pointless qualifiers playoff bollocks in November. What a load of old sack why don't they just let the first and second qualify instead of all this nuisance. I suppose its probably just a money making exercise.

But only 4 more sleeps to go before football is back.Thank fuck.

THIS! absolutely.

on a positive note, I am delighted that I found something to be roting for at next WC, since I honestly was/am very little arsed at it, even when my country's selection was up for a serious bid.

the ICELAND fair tale keeps going and is so overwhelming to defy any ppossible Hollywood script.
can't wait for the Vikings' clapping to resound loud again, out there in soviet union.
"In the week following England's defeat in Rotterdam, the FA were shocked to discover not only that they would have to sell the family silver (the FA Cup) to make up for the financial cost of World Cup failure, but also that nobody was queuing up to take over from Taylor. For Swales, it must have been a familiar situation. Few managers with reputations to protect want to cross his threshold at Maine Road either."

Don't think anyone wonders why they're mates with rags.

Most people wonder why they're mates with cretins. Would anyone moan if Joe Hart went on holiday with Blind? Absolutely not. It's the Rooney's of this world people can't understand why you'd go on holiday with?

Celebrating and laughing with an opposing player on the pitch in front of the fans after the final whistle - that pisses people off. Whether it's the rags or Bury.

Bang on with the last paragraph, but Hart strikes me as a bit of a cock, so I can see why he'd enjoy Rooney's company.

I don't know any of these players personally, but if I were in their shoes, I'd rather hang out with a likeable Utd player than some smug bellend from my own team as well.

Even if UEFA did away with the playoffs, there would still be an international break in November. The other federations are still playing qualifiers then.
