Armenia's 2014 World Cup Qualifying - The Road to Brazil

As per Haynationalist's request, I have created a thread about our World Cup Qualifying. All future posts about our WCQ will be in here, and of course separate threads will also be created for each opponent.

Here is the full schedule...

The danes will be our hardest opponent away I think. They are a bunch of hard ****ers even if they dont have so many famous players.

Haha, yupp. It is embarrasing that it is a World Cup Qual. group. But we cant focus on that. I dont want to give up believing either since I think that with a little luck we could squeeze out that second place. We just have to hope that the danes will have a bad qualifying period.

Yes. But the play off scenario is a bit different than the euro one. In this qualification the draw for who you play against in the playoffs will be based on how you did in during the qualifications instead of seeding according to overall ranking.

It might be slightly harder to qualify for a WC from UEFA due to less spots to UEFA teams, but some of the other teams in other confederations have absolutely NO BUSINESS there

The current format for WCQ is absolutely flawed. However, I can't think of a better way to fix it at the moment. I do think having some confederations play play-off matches (ex: CONCACAF Vs. Oceania) is a good start.

I like it the way it is though, even how unfair it may be. It keeps European football and Uefas name high and if you actually can qualify from Uefa to the World Cup it means that you are a team of true class. Just look at Iran, if we would have qualified in the Asian region we would have been in the world cups several times.

Iran is just an example of why it's flawed. I can't stand it when people who know nothing about soccer go apeshit when a garbage football country makes the World Cup and then turn to me saying, "Well how come Armenia isn't in it, then?"

Don't get me wrong, it's not like we were a great team then either. However, if this happens now the frustration would only be fueled more.

Ape, I love your patriotism, I got into that argument once before with some guy from Nicaragua. I'm like man... the hardest team you can play is USA/Mexico. Usa would probably be a second/third seed in Europe at best. I think Denmark (2nd seed) would easily trash them.

Ok boys do you have predictions?

I think that we will

Win against Malta (A)

Win against Bulgaria (A) - We just have to hope Berbatov won't be coming back!

Win/Draw/Lose against Italy (H) - This game could actually go either way.

Win/Draw against Czech (H) - Petr Cech will be hard to get past.

Win against Malta (H)

Lose against Denmark (A) - Those ****ers are hard at their homeground ''Parken''

Draw against Czech (A) - Cech Problem again.

Win/Draw against Denmark (H)

Win against Bulgaria (H) - Berbatov problem again

Win/Draw/Lose against Italy (A) - They will probably be group leaders with a good marginal at this stage so maybe their performance and won't be the same. Let's Hope!

What do you think guys?, is this reasonable?
