France - time for revenge

Romania - same here. Still all familiar names though

Bosnia and Herzegovina - Now will be the time to qualify? I reckon they can get past the Romanians

Belarus - Hleb has been spotted

Albania - probably will be the same old story

Luxembourg - poor guys

France + the Bosnians for me

I also went for France and Bosnia & Herzegovina. France is rid of Domenech and Blanc seems to me a coach who can get more out of those talented French players. It can't go worse for the French then it did during EURO 2008 and World Cup 2010. Normally I would have said Romania would take 2nd place but they are going through a bad period the last 4 years. Bosnia almost qualified for the World Cup this year and they have a lot of scoring power so I think they can overcome Romania this time.

after they changed the idiot, I think France will be a far better team and will win this group. as for the second place, well this is hard. Romania and Bosnia should fight, but I just dont know which one more deserves my vote. ok, let it be Romania

Despite all the past issues we have seen from France, I believe they will qualify in first place. Blanc is not crazy like Dommenech and will pick the right players and lineups.

Bosnia are in a better moment than Romania and are slightly favourites for second place.

France and Bosnia to go through. I think this is Bosnia time to shine, has very good attack. Lets see how well France does with the new manager.

Romania to have their usual slip ups against weaker teams.

Romania 1-1 Albania
Luxembourg 0-3 Bosnia

those are the games the Romania should be winning but never do, watch how they will probably beat France and Bosnia now then end up losing to Luxembourg and Belarus.

Was it written in the stars and if so, why didn't Blanc consult Domenech?

Belarus can be tough though... Holland also lost twice vs Belarus but only in away matches. In any case, Blanc still has a lot to do with this French NT.

wow, very interesting first up matches... France lose at home, Romania cannot win against a supposed minnow of the group and BiH get off to a flyer

just for the record, it would be good to see BiH at a major tournament

France always give us hopes.

If Romania beat Belarus this Tuesday (difficult but not impossible) and Bosnia do their job against France, this group will become criminal for Blanc and co.


Bosnia are the best team of this group at the moment. But this is just the beginning.

Romanians are the first to criticize the NT and to admit we are shit at the moment. But put this in your head: Romania can always react. And the new generation that is coming don´t seem that bad.

In the future we can´t do worse. We can only improve.


And even with all of this, the normal result today would have been a 2-0 for Romania easily. But shit happens.

Think that Bosnia will make it with 1st place with Dzeko's magical powers.

France may recover from this awful form and be 2nd, but Belarus is dangerous.

Of course, people say this team is not talented but do people really expect the 1990-2000 generation every time around?

That doesn't make sense. With all this shit, the result is 1-1. :smileani: Stop letting this guy get to you.
