I also think it's highly believable we could end up being stubborn bastards to play against and not lose to Denmark and Swiss in the campaign.

Absolutely no chance of that happening ffs LOL

I'll also point out I of course know we're sh*te and the above results probably won't pan out.

Though we have a history of up setting the apple cart

When the draw for 2002 WC qualifying was made no one gave us a hope (albeit I'll admit we had a much better squad) but Portugal and the Netherlands were much better then our crop

For 2016 we pick up 4 points from Germany when that draw was made no one gave us a chance it was all doom and gloom when we lost and drew with Scotland but we ending up qualifying (albeit with a much better squad).

My point is who knows what will happen I'm always optimistic when it comes to our results because I've witnessed so many great nights and results down the years

There is nothing to be optimistic about with our current squad though.

We don't create enough chances, we've been playing not to lose (but not to win) etc 

In truth we'll probably finish 3rd but will pose no direct threat to breaking up the top 2.

This campaign should be all about blooding as many young players into the squad as we can.

That was under different management though

Again I'm not saying Mick is going to come in and radically change things but we have to be optimistic he will or what is the point

We have young Doherty (as people call him) playing the best football of his career.

We have the potential to recruit a player who is scoring goals in Patrick Bamford.

In terms of creating chances I think the aforementioned Germany proves creating chances doesn't mean you will necessarily win a game, you only have to take one chance.

Wisconsin will be getting a great coach I must say if that is your general attitude

What is the point matters for nothing.
We are bang average with 2 far superior teams whom we hope will drops points to Georgia when it's far more likely we will and thus removing all hope of finishing in the top 2.

I feel our best hope is that over the next 12 months we get some granny rule players in Bamford begin one big hope and maybe 1 or 2 more 
And that a few  promising  young lads progress quicker than hoped and can have a real impact on the team.

And we get lucky enough to get to a playoff and with all the above being said we have an improved team and give the playoffs a bit of a realistic go.

But this is probably fantasy stuff as we really are average

Or we could just be realistic and know our place which is as a middle of the road European team nestled firmly as a 3rd seed nation.

Using the Germany game is a fine example (as a once off) but lets fast forward to the pitiful 12 goals scored in 10 matches in World Cup Qualifying and not scoring in 3 out of 4 Nations League games. 

What has my coaching ablility got to do with making a point on an internet forum Confused

How a person comes across on an internet forum could be completely different as to how they are in real life and bigger the fool you for using that as a way of getting a dig at me just because I've a different opinion to yours LOL

I just really have no confidence in the current crop, add in Grealish/Rice and a few additions like Bamford etc I'd definitely see the light but unfortunately we'll do well to remain competitive in this group (3rd would be acceptable) 

I'd much rather see McCarthy come and out say "we'll be firmly focused on bringing through young players" and just see them gain experience over results imo.

It's the only way we can improve going forward.

He was brought in to try and qualify though, as unrealistic as that seems. 
you were probably told to leave an Irish centre one night but kept mouthing off and some big church going Gaa player f**ked you out the door hence your hatred for the Catholic Church and Gaa aswell!

Which I think is madness personally!

Write off this campaign and rebuild to f**k!

They're a bit light (Not as light as us) upfront but I suppose that doesn't matter if Eriksen shows up.

I feel the Swiss have more quality in their squad overall than the Danes.

I think Eriksen covers up a lot of their squad issues alright though a lot of them would walk into our starting XI much less our squad

Poulsen seems to be having a very decent season at Diabetes FC. I can only imagine the excitement if we had a striker playing well at such a level.

Aye, that Danish squad is strong with plenty of experience. Fingers crossed, they're all knackered by the end of the season when we play them above in Copenhagen...

Sisto and Larsen both missing, they look a little light out wide.

Could do with an O’Dowda.
