    Comment today from a once every four years football expert.
    "I'm so glad the cheating Italians are out, I'll never forget Totti's dive in Germany"

    I absolutely gave it to him.
    "First it wasn't Totti it was Grosso, Secondly it wasn't a dive and please never talk to me again about football. I ****ing can't stand four year experts like you" I said.

    He was so stunned, left him speechless.

    Just another reason why the rankings are ****ed

    ****s like Switzerland have stacked their fixtures with no friendlies and got an artificially high ranking

    As a result they get seeded in the draws for Qualifying

    As a result they don't have to face much of note

    Italy haven't been doing so and get drawn with Spain in the same group

    Wonder how long it will be before this anomaly gets rectified

    I explained the whole world cup qualification process to a colleague today. They suggested the WC wouldn't be much good without Italy and why wouldn't the top 20 teams get automatic qualification.

    It ended up me explaining the breakdown of the confederations and how at hte end of the day, if teams don't make it they simply aren't good enough. I also covered that the world ranking system was flawed, hence why the "Top 20" suggestion wouldn't work.

    FFS Wales were ranked 13th in the World and they not even good enough to get in the top 2 of a group that contained Republic of Ireland and Serbia

    Absolute farce they are if they able to get so high by having 1 decent tournament and not playing friendlies much

    I don’t know that you can really say any team is hard done by for not qualifying.
    There’s 10 odd games in most cases and results are over 2 years or thereabouts. There are second chances afforded to most teams that remain competitive and deserving.

    I’m still so torn whether I agree or not. The attacker obviously went looking for the contact. But Neill was there to oblige.

    97 we didn't lose a game and got knocked out

    So we were unlucky that time

    This time though we have 3 opportunity to qualify

    Beat Japan -Lost 2-0
    Beat Thailand by lots - could only manage 2-1 and as a result Saudis squeaked past

    Beat Honduras tomorrow night

    We will have had ample opportunity to qualify and despite our record on paper being more than adequate historically if we don't qualify tomorrow night then ....

    We don't deserve to regardless of what bullshit ****s us over as we weren't good enough

    Yoorope needs to be split in 2 groups and go a Sth American style mega home and away roundabout.

    top six each group go through, playoff the other spot between 7th in each group.

    wheat from chaff etc etc etc
