One word: Iceland

To go from #1 in the world in 1950's to worse than Iceland in 2013 right after a record defeat...that's more than a disgrace. That's incompetence. That's stupidity and moronity of the highest order.

Seems like all we'll ever have is the history...which fades further and further away into the fog of nothingness.

You need an entirely different mindset on how to operate the NT..a total change and finance the kids playing..the 10 to 15 year olds.

Buy a football jersey and get a billboard

Does anyone remember our 3-0 defeat in Moldova?

When Gumimaci missed 5 open goals?

If we had have won that match we would have had Moldova's qualifying group for 2010 WC.

Now check the group they were drawn in.

All beatable teams for Hungary (on a good day).

We must not forget Turkey, Romania and Holland are tough teams. A lot of the teams like Slovakia and Slovenia have had major luck. Also top players in the most important positions (centre back, Centre mid, Striker).

Juhász is bigger than Sigurdson though.

Roli = 6ft 3in
Sigurdson = 6ft 1in

2 inches would make all the difference. So, I've been told, anyway.
