Great LATE win for SCOTLAND thrilled me more than ENGLAND's win over SLOVENIA (although i still think we'll (hopefully) be difficult to beat at least! next year as PORTUGAL were in winning the EURO's!)

I just hope SCOTLAND & their FANS are there too?

Slovenia have players missing now & hopefully Scotland might get some of theirs back?
They KNOW what they have to do...WIN, AWAY at SLOVENIA, not easy but they're NOT as good as SLOVAKIA so every chance if they GO FOR IT as they did against SLOVAKIA.

Good Luck NORTHERN IRELAND in the PLAY-OFF's

And WHAT A GAME to come between WALES & THE REPUBLIC of IRELAND.

Visted Wales plenty in my youth so it's a shame they're probably not going to win the group & looks to be between these two for a PLAY OFF?
If so & being of IRISH DESCENT i HAVE to go with IRELAND & i think with WALES missing BALE that might be the difference so hoping for an AWAY win for the IRISH but hopefully the team that plays the BEST on that night will WIN IT & Go through.

And HOW about ARGENTINA struggling to get through!!!
ONE GAME left...THE TOP 4 from South America make it to THE WORLD CUP in RUSSIA 2018.
Argentina are 6th!!! 5th gets them a play off which they SHOULD win against New Zealand i believe? but talk about struggling!

As for the WORLD CUP itself...

Got a funny feeling BELGUIM might get it right this time...they have the players so a BET on them might not be too far off?

BUT COME ON SCOTLAND...they'd brighten up the WORLD CUP NEXT YEAR.

Just a quickie Wink

ENGLAND already having qualified with a game to go...if i could arrange it that ENGLAND lose in Lithuania but SCOTLAND win in Slovenia I WOULD (i wonder how many ENGLAND fans would say and/or agree with that?)

LOVE the Scots & they will brighten the whole tournament up with their TARTANS & Wigs Laughing

I just heard from my sister that BUTLAND will be in goal for ENGLAND...about blanking time!

We know what KANE can do...so i'd rest him...GET RASHFORD up there partnering DEFOE (i know out of form but it could be his SWANSONG & he deserves it i think & SUPER GUY & who didn't LOVE that story of him & that young fellow that sadly passed away recently...give DEFOE 1 LAST GAME! here)

Would probably send out what we think is are STRONGEST Defensive line up (get them used to each other a little more)

MIDFIELD is where we could EXPERIMENTai little here today.. let's see if ALLI can reign it in a bit whilst still having that wonderful flair & speed & get STERLING back on the wings GARETH!

If all goes well BOTH will win today (but Slovenia will be tough on their home patch...0 goals conceded there!) but if i can have only 1 winning result then i would pick SCOTLAND of course (now that ENGLAND are there)

GOOD LUCK Tartan Army!

And should you make it let's hope you don't get paired with ITALY or PORTUGAL? in the PLAY OFF's (they wouldn't fancy getting you either)
But if you do SHOCK 'EM.

DAMN...on both accounts, ENGLAND drab again (have to agree with Wrighty on ITV...ENGLAND still for some reason? PLAY too SAFE, it's as if the players are SCARED they will be shown up for what they really are vastly OVERPAID Average to Good Players)

Would LOVE to see ENGLAND just go for it...take players on, shoot on site, get those crosses IN, play the through balls!!! it's as if they're playing another game to the one we LOVE!

As for SCOTLAND Cry

Massive Game tonight...Most have got WALES down as winning this match or at the very least drawing it to qualify for a PLAY OFF place but i have a funny feeling the REPUBLIC of IRELAND may break Welsh hearts tonight, should be tight & i can see Martin O'Neil getting his tactics right for Ireland tonight (Hopefully) and edging it 0-1?

England need a strong leader, someone to give them a good kick up the arse.  All too often its weaker opposition that gives them that.  Every time I see them play a strong team they look sharp, hungry and even if they dont win they are at least trying.


Gutted for Scotland and if they showed the same intent they did in last 15 mins they might just have done it.  Still a much better showing from the Scots this time and maybe they will do it next time.


And as Im Irish Im delighted we have another bite at it. Hope the draw is kind and I hope Coleman stays on with Wales but somehow I think the lure of a Premier league club could be too much to resist. 


Good prediction too Paul hope you had money on it.Wink

Sadly my CRYSTAL BALL failed me with the Scotland hoped for prediction (i think we knew it would be tough but i actually thought they might just do it having been in such good form of late...ARGHHH)

Unfortunately for Wales it didn't let me down again last night Smile

Let's hope whoever we get in the play-off we make it to Russia next year? along with Northern Ireland.

Just had a feeling (after all the talk of Wales & having done something England fans like myself can now only dream about...a SEMI-FINAL place not too long ago that were so common to us in the past before gloriously & unluckily going out in Extra Time or Penalties (usually to Germany!) how we now remember those times with fondness) IRELAND would do it, panned out as i hoped, Martin O'Neil isn't a bad manager.

With regards to ENGLAND John i don't know why???
But i have got another funny feeling about them (one i shouldn't have! perhaps it was Portugal playing boring & frankly rubbish football during the EURO's & winning it) on paper i think we (ENGLAND) have a better team than Portugal but if he can find the right balance (defence needs to be SOLID with capability of getting down the sides & whipping crossses in ala Walker & Rose, midfield is the WORRY, i like Alli a lot but needs to start showing that promise again, shame Wilshire isn't heading in the direction i had hoped for! Lalana & Sterling? think your right with the strong leaders comment...we have very few! ATTACKING options are decent, KANE & RASHFORD)
Many saying we won't even make it out of the group (whoever we get) but i have to disagree, although i can see that point of view, if KANE can get enough chances & put them away & ALLI back in form coupled with a strong defence? Smile i really do think we have as good  chance as most of them.

Will they win it? unlikely? but the same was said about ITALIA '90 & they came close to doing so (probably should have as we were beginning to tick after a very slow start to that tornament)

We could win it but unlikely, Belguim are my DARK HORSES, Spain look to be back in form again, Germany are ALWAYS there ot thereabouts, Brazil of course & France, perhaps even Chile? but i have a feeling Gareth who did well with the UNDER 21's might get a more balanced level side in place by the time this thing comes about & i think ENGLAND will make the QF or maybe even the SEMI's again (once you get to this point...ANYTHING can happen)

As for the two IRELAND's i'm just hoping they're BOTH there, have one side of my family from Northern & another from the REPUBLIC so i'll be CHEERING both on should they make it there.

COME on IRELAND's


Oh & my prediction for tonight...


I've looked into my Crystal Ball & i see SWEDEN making it to RUSSIA 2017 Laughing
