"we're still running" is a little bit far fetched I'd say

for 3rd place ok

Latvia looks like the weakest of all teams in this group

but let's see what happens against Madeira next

All of us should have forgotten about qualifying when we lost against Andorra. Even the more optimistic fellows.

Without Szalai I'm not sure what the boys can do against Sporting, WHU defenders + Pepe.

Without Jesus, a hopeless end. With him, an endless hope.

we all know that we only qualified for EB because of Dárdai, format of tournament and historically easy group with Greece meltdfown and even N-Ire of all teams winning it lol


anyway, ever since 2008 and the Koeman era we always gathered more than half of the reachable points in the quali groups, i.e. out of 30 possible points we made 16, 19, 17 and 16, respectively.

now we stand at 10/21 which is mégaszar and we'll only get to 16/30 if we manage to beat Faroes at home plus one more win against either Portugal or away at the Cheese makers'

That wasn't his goal, Major. No way he should get credit for that.

Was busy all day (with magyar though not foci related stuffs) so didn't see it but looks like we were pretty good Hopefully can catch a replay.

I don't dwell in the past. Don't care about the null-null at the Islands, neither about the 1-0 defeat on Andorra. If we don't lost against Portugal (it is possible, isn't it? We've done it before, on a game more important than this one), we will be free as a bird and can expect full recovery in EURO qualis.

Hajrá Magyarok!

I like what you said Dandeer about not dwelling on the past, we should be like quarterbacks and have short-term memories, we throw a couple of interceptions back-to-back get right back up and throw 3 touchdowns with the earlier errors to be learned from and forgotten.

Its a big downer that Szalai is out, hw was playing good vintage football right now (in third place with 4 goals in qualis).

I don't think we should be in the mindset of 'what's after this', cave in an surrender, I think Portugal is beatable, Any team is beatable, That's why they play the game.
