Ireland's chances of qualifying

Postby Towelie » Sat Jul 05, 2014 7:00 pm

I'm looking forward to the upcoming European qualifiers, mainly because of the players that performed well this season, for example Seamus Coleman, James McCarthy and Shane Long and because I truly believe the worst is behind us, no doubt another drubbing may well be on the cards from the Germans but I believe we are well fit for the Poles and the Scots. What do you lads think of our chances this time?

Domestically? England isn't domestically. Loi is domestic league. And we haven't a hope. Poland are better than us. Germany are world class and the scottish games could really go either way.

I think it will come down to the Poland Ireland games for 2nd\3rd. Poland are no great shapes. Similar to us and the Scots are shite.

BTW is the fai still offering the season ticket for 140?

I agree, I think we beat Poland a year or two ago in a friendly and Scotland beat them not so long ago however Lewandowski will be a threat, we'll have to pray he doesn't show up whenever we play them. Yeah I think that season tickets are between 130 and 180 last I checked

I'd say our chances of Qualifying are 70-80%

Poland and Scotland are not up to much although the latter have improved somewhat. We have two top class players in Colman and McCarthy and some solid players after that. One thing I'd be concerned about is we don't seem to have many youngsters breaking through.

That seems to be the main concern for most people, even Martin O'Neill. However whenever I look at the likes of young Grealish and Lawlor and consider that players like McCarthy, Brady, Coleman, Duffy, Clark(even tho he isn't liked by most villa fans however has loads of time to improve) are all in their early 20's I don't think the future is that bleak, also one of the young lads in our own league could go over to england or Europe and do a job the same way James McClean did with Sunderland
