The Denmark Spain game will be the one to determine who qualifies in second place, probably will be the game of the group Looks like the odds are on Spain and Sweden to go through.

Ni had their chance against a weakened Iceland team. I donīt know about the subs that Nigel brought on, they all look the same type of player to me, small, run around a lot and give the ball away. After NI equalised, Iceland fought back and gained enough control to neutralise any threat of losing the game. And the earlier entry of (an unfit) Eidur Gudjonsson dropping in that famous hole added a bit of class to the Iceland midfield, I presume thats what Nigel had his thoughts on.
My prediction on the outcome of this game was razor sharp, that NI would be doing well to get a draw. In the last 15 minutes of the game Iceland were the more determined team, they wanted the victory more.

And in a sport where shock upsets are much rarer than in, say, soccer,


Only because it it far easier in football for crap teams to drag good teams down to their level. Stick everyone behind the ball, defend for your lives, bit of luck at the other end and a crap team can beat a good one 1-0. You can't do that in rugby.

there are only 7 or 8 teams (max) with a realistic chance of ever winning the tournament.

Is it any different in football? The same teams usually end up winning these tournaments.

Anyway this is all off topic.

Bottom Line: Sanchez was a great manager and a respectable figure for Northern Ireland and probably would have taken care of the two teams Latvia and Iceland relatively easily (even though the 0-3 turnover at home was pretty dire). He knew his team well and knew how to squeeze every ounce of success out of them, and probably would have at least finished 3rd (Spain and Sweden's class would have shone through imo).

Someone on OWC is saying it was Gillespie and McCartney. Didn’t Gerry Taggart dig that kn**ker Gillespie before as well?

Two things concern me about your post Donagh.

Firstly, the use of the word kn**ker is as racist and inappropriate here as it is on other 'sporting' sites.  I for one don't want the gaaboard to down the road of sites like owc where similar terms are routinely used by posters and either tolerated, condoned or used by the moderators.  We are much better that that.

Secondly, I believe that the average member of the travelling community is a much classier individual than the one to whom you refer and as such your post is grossly unfair to travellers in general.

You are a bollix.  It's ages since I went near there of my own initiative, but everytime you post here you mention it and the curiosity gets the better of me.

Was disgusted by Mac's Nazi reference, but it has given me a penalty kick for subsequent debates.

N Ireland fall in Fifa rankings 
 
Northern Ireland lost 2-1 to Iceland in Reykjavik
Northern Ireland have fallen nine places to 36th in the Fifa rankings following defeats in their last two Euro 2008 qualifiers.
Nigel Worthington's side suffered serious setbacks in the Group F campaign by losing lost 1-0 to Latvia and 2-1 to Iceland.

The Republic of Ireland are now ranked 32nd, five places better than their standing in August.

They drew with Slovakia and lost to the Czech Republic in their last two games.

Apologies for sending you to the Dark Gates of Mordor but pray tell could you get in?

I'm getting some screen asking me to log in.
