    Re: General Football Discussion 2017-18

    That's the end of Italy's old guard then...new manager needed, and fresh players to replace Buffon...Cheilini, Barzagli & Bonucci...just a new defence needed...i'm sure they got the strength there though.

    Plus...what odds on Zlatan coming out of retirement for the World Cup

    Shock....us Welsh can join in right?
    I have a plan so cunning......

    My Italian friend just texted me

    "It's the end of the world..."

    Sums it up really.
    The most amazing thing about this recent conversation is that I've learned AON is even more of a waste of space than I thought he was previously

    Sorry, you've qualified for a tournament recently. Still bitter about that.


    Buffon, Alaba, Bonucci, Chiellini, Bale, Vidal, Keita, Hamsik, Robben, Sanchez, Aubameyang - a team of players who won't be at the world cup. Decent team that.

    Re: General Football Discussion 2017-18

    1 tournament in 60 years and people get bitter with us

    It's also crazy to think the Argies were close to being dumped out too. The footballing landscape is changing, players from so called "lesser" countries are improving and that's a great thing to see.

    I just hope we do ok in this China Cup thing....we should beat the other three teams, even without Bale.

    Some sublime acting in the Wales U21's vs Romania U21's game. One of the Romanian players rolled about 10 yards off the pitch after being fouled, another did a sublime dive...got himself booked..then sent off as it was a second booking....then their other striker got rugby tackles, elbowed the Welsh player to get him off, then put his head to the same player infront of the ref...naturally got sent off haha, what a last 10 mins that was.

    There is something brutally and deliciously ironic by Italy being undone by a side defending to the death.

    I can understand why so many people are upset at Italy being absent. But honestly, its probably the best thing for Italy long-term. This has not been a very good Italian side and they would have been lacking the quality to make a run in the WC. This should force some change.

    Always thought Denmark would score and never seen us scoring twice but still a bad result. TBF tho, it's a bad team when you look at it. Full of passion and hard-work but absolutely nothing about them skill-wise when it comes down to it.

    I think Scotland and ROI teams are quite similar and the World Cup is losing nothing with us not being there.

    Other than entertaining fans, I agree World Cup isn't weaker without Ireland or Scotland. I also don't see England making it very far.

    Re: General Football Discussion 2017-18

    I'd miss Ireland in the world cup, I enjoyed watch them play in the Euros more then I did with England. Always fun to watch.

    England will do better I think then previous tournaments but I don't have much expectations. Do well with a younger squad and I'll be happy.

    Had planned to head over and be an integral part of it

    Think it's safe to say the results could have very easily been embarrassing for both national sides. As it happens, I slightly prefer the Scottish side player to player.
