So, three of the four play-offs seconds legs have been played, all of them have ended 0-0.  What odds on the last one ending the same way?

Already mentally preparing myself for it going to penalties tomorrow night.

Against the backdrop of the other leg being an outright win, which is the absolute norm in play offs.

People seem convinced that two draws and an away goal deciding it, or a play off going to extra time or penalties, is quite a regular occurrence but it is unbelievably rare in fact. I think Ireland vs Turkey in 1999 may have been the only Euro or WC play off tie to finish with two draws and there has never been a penalty shoot out in a play off in Europe.

Good few be gone now from them, Barzagli for one, De Rossi just announced it too, can't see Chellini and Bonucci sticking around either.

Get Gasperini in and let him bring through the young generation, Bernardeshi, Florenzi(captain), Rugani etc can be the future nucleus

Looks like Ventura hasn't resigned just yet, until he speaks to Tavecchio. Stubborn c*nt is probably praying they fire him so he can get compensation.

Barzagli, Chiellini and De Rossi anounce their international retirement too, at least it will force the new manager to look at younger options like Rugani, Caldara, Romagnoli, Gagliardini etc.

One small positive for Italians tonight is that Jorginho can't switch back to Brazil, he's such a good footballer always enjoy watching him play.

It's probably only a matter of time before Belotti moves to a top team so you would like to think if he fulfills his full potential Italy will have a truly World Class striker leading the line for the next decade or so.
Sunderland the team for me

Don't think there was any doubt that would happen. Can probably count himself lucky that he hasn't been lynched...

...yet..

I hear Ventura had a mad row with the players after the 1st leg over some suggestion he play certain formations and players - common sense as he made some of the most baffling decisions ever. By sounds of it Buffon and few others sorted out the row but made him more determined to try last nights crazy formation/line up.
 
He had to be snook out the back door of the team hotel early this morning LOL
 
 
 
Now the Hondurans are claiming "espionage" from the Aussies last week too, loving all the dramas LOL

That Honduras v Socceroos game was one of the worst I have ever seen in my life.  I don't think I'll be getting up at FOOK off o clock for the decider.
