I’ve heard of computer coding, but coding yourself is a new one.

Oh great a f**king comedian 
Despite it not being at all my intention to amuse you, I’m glad you found my comment worthy of labelling me as a comedian. Just shows that some peoples coding is very different to others.

No need for drugs. Still "living the dream". And the Danish World Cup hangover scenario is still on. 

Confidence is rising after the 1-1 (the National Result) in Copenhagen.

I still can't see us beating anyone that matters. 
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.

Likely to get one and there’s a fair shout the first game would be against the North. 

Hope for a few League A teams not to qualify (eg Iceland) and the League B teams ahead of us to auto qualify.

With Slovakia and Wales in the same group and Croatia back on track by beating Wales today, we need every other league B to qualify for us to get a home draw (which would be against the north) in the playoffs, so Austria need to get their act together.

Most likely will be away to Slovakia.

And Wales just got one back - Cheering Wales on feels 🤮

Yep. Other hope is having Iceland as the only League A team that doesn’t qualify (or having all League A teams qualify) and then having 4 League B teams ahead of us not qualify so we get into the League A playoffs which would be watered down massively and be more like League C.

It has been a brilliant game to watch.

What are yous worrying about. Automatic qualification will come down to our final game at the Aviva against Denmark. Write the wrongs of 2 years previous. Written in the stars.

To qualify automatically, we're probably going to have to pull out a big performance somewhere and beat either the Swiss or Denmark at the Aviva. I can't see us going straight through on draws alone.

The draw between Switzerland and Denmark was, in my opinion, a bad result for us. 

Said it at the time as I felt our best chance was to sneak 2nd ahead of Denmark by drawing with them home and away but taking more points from the Switzerland games than Denmark.

Still possible for us to achieve that but Im not confident at all. We need Switzerland to win in Denmark, yet not win in Dublin, tough to realistically have any confidence in that happening.


Matt Cooper: What do you think is different this time?
John Delaney: Well we can understand our manager which is great. I tell you what, his English was always great when we were discussing the wages!

Confident is the wrong word - i dont think anyone could be 'confident' about our chances. I'm optimistic. We'll be right in the mix till the end, and it'll be a matter of who blinks first.

The Swiss and the Danes have better squads than us on paper, but we've been in that situation before. I'd say its the flip of a coin in it, in terms of our chances at the end of the group landing in the top 2.
No thank you Turkish......I'm sweet enough
