We drew Germany, Israel, Norway, Azerbaijan & Kosovo. Could have been worse. That said would not rate our prospects of qualifying with King in charge.

How the f**k is King still in that job

Someone like Kilbane would probably be better. Certainly no worse anyway

The FAI are willing to settle for less therefore we will probably finish 4th.

me too.  Big smile  Went over the border in 2011 before the Macedonia game but don't really count a country now until I see a football match there.  

Assume they will be allowed to play U21 games at home. Senior games are played in Albania at the moment.  

Nice draw.  Germany will obviously be strong favourites but hopefully we can challenge for 2nd.

Here are the weeks on which each game will take place - no exact dates and who we will be playing on each date. 


Draw lowdown
• Italy have a bye to the finals in summer 2019 but their co-hosts San Marino must qualify.

• Kosovo and Gibraltar are making debuts among a record 54 teams competing in qualifying.

• The nine group winners will qualify automatically for the finals.

• The four runners-up with the best records against the teams first, third, fourth and fifth in their group will go into the play-offs and be drawn into two ties to decide the last pair of qualifiers.

So there are 12 countries to qualify? That's a strange/odd number.

Could do worse and appoint one of the succesful managers from the LOI.
Stephen Kenny would be a fantastic appointment.

Provisional fixtures are here

2017

March 25: Ireland v Kosovo

September 5: Azerbaijan v Ireland

October 5: Ireland v Norway

October 9/10 (TBC): Ireland v Israel

November 14: Norway v Ireland

 

2018

March 27: Ireland v Azerbaijan

September 7: Kosovo v Ireland

September 11: Ireland v Germany

October 11: Israel v Ireland

October 16: Germany v Ireland


Forget Azerbaijan away as it is on the day of Serbia home.  Kosovo away in Sept 2018 will depend on Nations League fixtures.

Yes Stephen Kenny, but i'd like to see him remain with Dundalk at the moment and see if he can carry on his good work. I don't think there is anyone else within the league at the minute who might get us to a majoe finals. Possibly Kerr.

Reckon we've got a decent shot at making the playoffs.  No idea what Norway are like, can't imagine Azerbaijan and Kosovo are too great and Israel are very very average.  Noel King worries me though, as other lads have said

whats more worrying is someone in the FAI isn't doing something about it. every year were useless at u21 level but these people still stay in a job year on year. it should be in the FAI's interest for us to have a good u21 set up/manager etc. what do you have to do to get sacked at u21 level?

Anybody know the venue for our home games?  

I see Waterford are at home on the 25th so it seems unlikely we will continue in the RSC.  Cork City are also at home as are Galway.

Shamrock Rovers are away as are Sligo Rovers.  Both have been used often enough in the past. Any chance of the Markets Field in Limerick?
