As it says. I was surprised to see the confidence in the Duffy thread so I wanted to see how widespread it is.  I just can't see it happening myself, unless we get a barrel load of luck. It feels like a half-decent performance against Georgia and we are all getting carried away, with little or no basis in reality.
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.

We will finish third and hopefully get lucky in the play off.

Probably 3rd but I think we have a decent chance of getting 2nd.  If we have 9 or 10 points after 4 games which we should have then momentum is gathering on our side and it will go down to the wire between us and the Swiss or Denmark.

I think we are capapble of getting 2nd.  Our squad is sh*te but if we are well set up with a good happy camp under Mick then we will be respectable against anyone.

MON had morale rock bottom and played anti-football and was able to get draws against the Danes.  I can't see why a better set up EIRE with better tactics and team spirit can't at least match that.

9 points was always the bare minimum to have any outside chance of qualifying though. The Gibraltar games will give people a massive false impression of what is happening in the group table.

Now if we get a result against Denmark, that's a totally different story. I'll take back every word I've said.

We effectively have 6 matches in this group. Georgia at home being the easiest. All the meat and bones of our group comes in 6 months time. I must do up a table without any Gibraltar results in it, as they give a silly impression of how we are doing. Especially come the summer time when we will have played then twice.

Aye but a win is a win is a win etc...  Winning breeds winning.  If we have 9 or more points going into the Autumn the team will have a good feeling about the place and be gaining in belief and have at least a bit of confidence going into the tougher games.  Even if those wins are against the weaker sides.  Momentum is important.  Better to be going into the tougher games with a backlog of wins than to be heading into the easy games with a mixed bag of results against the top sides in my opinion.

We expect the Danes And Swiss  to take 6 From Georgia and Gibraltar. To me our first games in the Group is in Denmark.  We need something from the game given that draw in Switzerland. Coming  back from Tblisi cost Switzerland and if we are to get out if this group we need 4 points from that double header in October

the group should be viewed at all times without Gibraltar and any points gained from them. They won’t take a single point in this group with the exception maybe of getting s draw with Georgia at home. To view it any other way is coding yourself .

Cautiously more optimistic with Mick in charge, bearing in mind the more promising display v Georgia but I still think the lack of cutting edge up front may well cost us automatic qualification.    And if it does come to the play-off's, we would need some luck considering it'll now be a semi-final (away) and final rather than a 2-legged tie against the same team.
But If MoN had been still in charge, I would have voted for 'no chance', it had got that bad. Dead

We should beat Georgia away in October and will beat Gib at home.

that leaves four matches, home and away against denmark and switzerland, drawing all four of these would be enough for second, if there is a winner in the danes vs swiss return game in october.  

Touts Out!

Not so sure about the "SHOULD BEAT GEORGIA AWAY" reference. They owe us one big time and someone will fook up in Tbilisi. Just hope it's not us and obviously not Swiss now!

Exactly - we were absolute muck, getting rid of the ball asap and making them look like Barcelona. 
 
I'd be a bit more hopeful we can avoid such a farce this year for the simple reason that we've got rid of MONROY and the toxic atmosphere that had set in during their last year.
