    Ireland Watch

    2 wins in the last 2 games and Slovakia beating Russia will send the team off to Kiev and Krakow next summer. Anything less and it's another play-off we're fighting for. The draw is on Thursday afternoon. It will be seeded and the top seeds will be away first.

    Tonight is Slovakia v Russia in the Zilina shoebox at 19.15 here, and Ireland v Andorra in the 850-seat RSC-type kip at 20.30.

    Would be a gamble to want Slovakia to win so we can top the group. I don't think they have the bottle to beat Armenia at home though. (will struggle tonight aswell)

    2-0. Game won, second place maintained.

    When you consider what we had to do to play the groups in Tallaght, it's quite ridiculous that that ground is still considered suitable to host International football.

    Slovakia 0-1 Russia. Russia win the group, Slovakia finish 4th and are gone. Ireland need 1 point on Tuesday to make the playoff.

    Line might be shite, but at least they're trying to get a few songs going. Often watching games like this, is like watching a reserve LOI game.

    In other news Estonia have beaten the Nordies again. I'd say MON will be looking very smug if he is on the highlights on bbc 2 later. He knows there will be even less expected of him when he takes over from Worthington.
    What time's the next 18 due ?

    Germany, Italy, Spain, Holland, England, Russia qualified already.

    Denmark scored 4 in 22 minutes in Cyprus, 5 years since Staunton's lot scored 2 in Cyprus.

    If Ireland get past Armenia, some interesting possible play-off opponents (second placed teams) await.....

    Read somewhere earlier that it will be seeded. Bit of a departure by UEFA, making that decision BEFORE they know which teams are involved. In any case - seeding is mad. Stupid for teams to break their bollocks (in some cases) to make second place, only to be told that they are regarded as minnows when it comes to the play-offs. Should be an open draw. As in, really open. Not UEFA "open".
