I think all three were factors to be honest.

If they had been different teams, we would have had more fans.
If they had been the same teams but in qualifiers, we would have had more fans (we had more fans in Copenhagen in June than we had in Aarhus in November, for instance),
If it had been under a new manager rather than O'Neill, we would have had more fans.

It is hard to say which was the biggest factor in that but, at a guess, I'd say it was the fact it was the same teams was the biggest issue, the fact the games were likely to be poor was the next biggest issue (caused by the management), as part of a general disillusionment with the style of play, with the final factor being related in that the Nations League itself is not the same as qualifiers proper.

I am going to Tbilisi again (for the third time) and I did do both trips to Wales and all three to Denmark but I wouldn't be particularly delighted to see us playing Wales again (and there is a 25% chance of that, remember).

I'd like the Czech Republic, Finland and then anyone but Israel in the last group. That's not because of any anti-Israeli sentiment or anything, it's just that Bulgaria, Romania and Hungary are cheaper and easier to get to. I'd like some manner of double header too: the Czech Republic and any of those three would be manageable.

Looks like Bosnia will be in the playoffs unless Finland stumble and Bosnia beats Italy.

All of the above, bar Bosnia, looking good to qualify, does that make it more likely we’ll have a home semi-final??

Wales still in trouble right? Looks like we’ll still be away unless 5+ League B teams don’t qualify and it gets merged with Iceland and League A.

Most likely playoff pairing at the moment looks like:

Wales v Ireland
Bosnia v Northern Ireland

Yet another trip to Cardiff...

Winner of these games will be the playoff final?

Yep, and a draw to determine who hosts the final.

Sure why not. Two home legs. Clap

Only problem being other international teams complaining of the unfairness of it all.
Pure Hat!

There's a reason why they're 2nd last in group. Some cracking players but it's not happening for Giggs. If anything that should give us hope.

scotland are lucky in path C.. looks like it might be easier to be relegated to qualify in future..
Path d is actually tougher than path c though.. I hope georgia qualify, they deserve it.  But then again teams like Kosovo have come on in such a short time.
We will play Wales and n.ireland.. I would be more comfortable with us beating denmark at home.. but let's just wait till after Tuesday. Maybe the playoffs will mean nothing after then

Would that be a confirmed line up (if these 4 teams fall into place) or would a draw take place. I.e., we could play the Bosnia in the semi final??
