play offs

well, the game is over, we've got the last nt to play the play-offs for the EC in Portugal next year:

Holland
Scotland
Turkey
Wales
Norway
Latvia
Spain
Croatia
Russia

i'd go for Holland, Wales or Latvija, but i'd got a weird feeling, we will get Spain.

Wouldn't Holland be extremely difficult to beat? Latvia, Wales and possibly Norway and Scotland should be the teams you should hope for in my opinion.

For some strange reason I have a feeling it will be Slovenia vs. Croatia.

For some strange reason, this is the exact kind of feeling I am getting.

Holland? They played some matches in the qualifiers pretty bad and i think that's because of the lack of colectivism among their players. I'm not too much impressed by their last win over Moldova, i mean- wasn't it to expect?
Norway is definately not the team, we can play a good match with them. No scandinavian team is, because of their style of long passes. Still remember our match in Arnhem 3 years ago- some really boring soccer.

LOL

heard one of your players, who said he wishes us.
Well, i don't. Would prefer it, to kick your asses lot on the EC.

Although we will be underdogs against every oponent, we don't fear anyone. Our team always showed character against the toughest teams. Still, we will hopefully avoid Turkey.

I wouldn't like to get Holland or Spain. Although they may both lack collectivism, they still have enough inidividual quality to kick our asses. Besides that two, Turkey and Croatia would also be difficult to beat. Norway, Scotland, Wales, Russia and Latvia are all teams against which we have decent chance of qualifying, however we must not underestimate anyone. They are all good teams and on a good day can severely kick our ass.

well, we know the story with Spain. We wouldn't have a chance, because every referee would help them......

Holland plays a tough football, but they aren't much better than Romania, whom we eliminated from the last WC.

Yes, but still they played better then we did in both games.

Again, you forget that Romania played better than we did. We will not always be that lucky.

You are right, I know them too well, too. We weren't the luckiest team out there, that's for sure.

Well, I don't know if this was worth saying thanks - sometimes it's just too wonderful to fly high...

I'm going to Portugal as well, and I really really hope we make it as otherwise it's going to be a real battle between the friends which other NT to see

Anyway, IMO, Scotland or Russia would be the easiest opponents from that group, but I wouldn't mind Croatia as well from obvious reasons.
