We would be be well beaten - and if your your trying to blood new players in on top of that it would be even more difficult.

I'd rather continue to play teams in around our level where we will be competitive.

The old Fai were obsessed with a home friendly with England and its looking like its the same again. We only played them last year absolutely no point playing them again plenty of other teams out there.

We have played 4 home friendlies v England in the history of the FAI.  Only 2 of those have been in the last 50 years and only one of them was completed.  
We’ve actually played them 3 times since 2013

We'll be doing that in the Nations League sure.

We seem to play above ourselves when we play better opposition like Portugal and Serbia.

Id like to avoid Belgium and Germany though, they do tend to hammer teams even in friendlies but Spain or France would be decent.

Looking back at their campaigns for the most part they only won or lost games by a single goal against opposition of our caliber.

Spain v Sweden 1-0 win, 2-1 loss.
Spain v Greece 1-1 draw, 1-0 win.

France v Ukraine 1-1 draw x2
France v Bosnia 1-0 win, 1-1 draw
France v Finland 2-0 win x2

Croatia similar.

id imagine staff only back this week, so hopefully we will here something next week.  Also the possibility of crowd restrictions are to be reviewed by the end of the month but if the 5000 limit was still to be in place ( which I can't see happening myself) maybe we could play a game in England where there are no crowd restrictions.

Unless there's a complete 360 from the FAI, the TBC won't be us as they've been looking at 2 home games. They'd want to be making some sort of announcement soon along with season tickets

I’d imagine the 5k limit will be lifted for the 2nd home six nations game at the end of Feb. Possibly the first one on 5th Feb. Next week might be an announcement on games followed by season ticket sales. Options on opposition  will become limited soon. Germany away??

It already is, every other association outside of UEFA are playing qualifiers in the March window so it has to be teams from UEFA.

Austria, Wales, Scotland, Ukraine, Russia, Poland, Sweden, Czech Rep, Portugal, Turkey, Italy, Macedonia are all involved in World Cup playoffs so cant be them. (Unless we play a knocked out team on the 2nd date)

We've Scotland, Ukraine and Armenia in the NL come June so wont be any of those 3.

Estonia, Cyprus, Moldova and Kazakhstan will be playing Nations League playoffs so wont be them.

Other friendlies already scheduled

24th Mar

Hungary v Serbia

25th Mar

Norway v Slovakia

26th Mar

Netherlands v Denmark
Germany v Israel
Spain v Albania

29th Mar

Denmark v Serbia
Norway v Armenia
Netherlands v Germany
Spain v Iceland
Northern Ireland v Hungary.


Only "big names" left are really France, Belgium or Croatia if its not England.

Italy were supposedly lined up until they made a bollox of their qualifying. Kenny apparently wants one or two games at the end of May before the NL. Wonder will they get them over then
