My biggest concern isn't the squad, that was always going to be iffy, it's who will replace Woy when it all goes to shit? Is he just taking crocks with him so he can blame it on injuries and get a new contract?

Sounds like a job for Pardiola.

Is there a Fair Play award for individual players? If so I'd like to make an early nomination for Pepe.

Well that was poor....

England were so bad they improved when Sterling came on, which is pretty damning....

And this is the stage where I tell you (on behalf of all my fellow countrymen) to go and fck yourself ( ) in the nicest possible terms....and once you've done that, have a wee gander at the Euro 2016 Qualifying final tables, and tell me where in their Group 'noddy' Norn Iron finished....I'll give you a clue, it wasn't 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th.

Last time I checked, throughout the history of the European Championships, the country winning their Qualifying Group has always been allowed to go to the Finals....

Winners? Spain or Belgium. The French have left a LOT of talent out of their squad, and I don't fancy their defence much. The Krauts don't excite me (again, other than Neuer, a dodgy defence).

Dark horses? Austria & Switzerland...both much better sides than the sum of their parts, and the Austrians should walk their Group.

The draw is so complicated after the Group stage that I can't be bothered to work out who might meet who before the Final if everyone who you'd think should win their Group actually does.

I think the qualifiers will be:

France, Switzerland, England, Russia, Germany, Poland, Spain, Croatia, Belgium, Italy, Austria, Portugal and the four best 3rd place teams: Norn Iron, Rep. of Ireland, Turkey & Iceland.

It took a little while for you to bite, but when you did....it was all worth it. Thank you.



I'm not sure about Belgium. They should be excellent but stink of Dutch desperation to fail.?

Austria and Switzerland are both good sides...good shout.

France as winners for me.

Belgium looked awful the other night against Norway and were lucky to win.

Thanksfully haven't seen England play yet. I also echo the post about taking Sturridge, Wiltshire and Henderson - crocked and pish!

It shouldn't have done, what with it being trolling an' all, but it made me laugh.
