absolutely ridiculous, could have a very negative effect on our World Cup seeding. Plus, no need whatsoever for a friendly during a pandemic.  

Because of rankings we still have to play a match that day, we can't just sit it out.
But out of all teams, especially when we're trying to pick up ranking points.

Fair enough didn’t realise that cheers! Why England tho, they will destroy us. I would have took Oman ffs!

Rice and Grealish in a heap with only 5 minutes gone. 
I could agree with you but then we'd both be wrong.

One of them two are almost a cert to score, you just know it

I can fully understand why but disagree with what some of what's being said here. Going to all the way to Sarajevo for a friendly in the current climate would have been madness given our two games are in Dublin and Cardiff would have been needless travel.

Typical Fai really looking for a quick bit of money for the friendly when they should be thinking long term, getting 2nd seeds and improving our chances of qualifying for World Cup.

Could we have just not played? Was that an option? What were Omam up to that week?

Ignoring the ranking points I'm looking forward to this. Nothing else to look forward to during lockdown.

Would have felt very indifferent if we had to play Bosnia.

Will you be saying that after a 4-0 loss and the anti Kenny brigade out in force? Then we have pot 3 to look forward to in December.

Get the feeling there's some on here who'd love us to get tanked.

It would b g8 2 c, m8!
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

yeah don’t get the pessimism you would swear England were Spain 2008 to 2012.   Most likely result is they win by one or a draw in my view.  

Looking forward to it but rankings are a concern I suppose but money probably overrides that concern.  Don’t fancy the Swiss in pot 2 or Germany if they drop into it.
