World Cup Qualification (Europe) - Group D

Recommended Posts

Eh. Couldn't find a thread for this group.

Mitrovic v Clark tonight in a massive game. If Serbia win they are probably going to win the group. If Ireland win they will go top.

Wales play Moldova where a win would keep them in the hunt.

I've got two 14/1 bets:

Wales & ROI to score 2 or more goals, 9+ corners in each match and 30+ booking points in each match

Goal in each half and 4 corners in each half in each of Wales and ROI games.

Few other bets on the Ireland game as think it'll be more entertaining than Wales vs Moldova. Wales should be thrashing them.

Half Time - 0-0

Well that was shite. Need to come out guns blazing in the second half if we're to stand a chance of finishing top.

Ireland drawing is helping at the mo.

Correct decision. Outside the box, brought down Murphy who was clear on goal. No other choice for the ref.

This is going to be one of those games whereby the Moldova keeper is going to be an absolute jammy cunt and keep a clean sheet isn't he?

Both really. The keepers fumbled a few shots that on other days would have crept in or found a player to pounce on the rebound. At the same time, we have been utter turd throughout, especially your best mate Tom Lawrence.

FINAFUCKINGLY!!!

1-0 Wales. Robson-Cruyff with the goal but no word of a lie, Woodburn has made the difference again providing the assist.

Now if Ireland can stop being useless shits, that'd be great.

Wales make it 2-0 in the final seconds.

Ireland are fucking terrible. Taking potshots from 25-30 yards in these last few minutes when trying for a goal; everyone trying to be a hero. All it needs is to keep pumping it in ot the box against a side with a man down. Shocking performance.

That's more than likely to happen. We have Georgia away next and I think Ireland are at home to Moldova as well. Can't see Ireland dropping points to Moldova.

They've been this bad since 2014. They were outrageously lucky to get the Euros.

We played them off the park twice in Euros qualifying and they only drew one of those 2 matches thanks to us being our typical chokey selves and them getting an offside goal - and we were a lot worse then even than we are now.

O'Neill was a good manager in his day but he's an absolute dinosaur. Ireland have plenty of talent but they play some of the worst stuff in international football.

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale has been ruled out of Wales' crucial World Cup qualifiers against Georgia and the Republic of Ireland with a calf strain.

Real manager Zinedine Zidane had played down concerns about Bale's fitness, saying he rested him for Sunday's win over Espanyol as a precaution.

Bale joined the Wales squad on Monday and, despite sitting out training, it had been hoped he would be fit.

But the 28-year-old's injury means he will not travel to Georgia.

Barnsley striker Tom Bradshaw has been called up to Wales the squad in his place.

Bale's absence in Tbilisi on Friday and in Cardiff for the visit of the Republic of Ireland three days later is a huge blow to Welsh hopes of qualifying for a first World Cup since 1958.

Wales are second in Group D, trailing leaders Serbia by four points with two matches remaining.

Second place could be enough to earn Chris Coleman's team a place in the play-offs, which will see eight of the nine runners-up in qualifying groups play for four remaining places in Russia 2018.

In order to secure a play-off place, Wales would realistically need at least four points from the games against Georgia and the Republic of Ireland.

Their chances of doing so will be harmed by the injury to Bale, who has scored four goals so far in this campaign. Wales have failed to win a match without the Real Madrid forward since 2013, drawing three and losing three matches in his absence.

The former Tottenham player has also been in fine form for Real, scoring a brilliant goal in last week's 3-1 Champions League win over Borussia Dortmund before being forced off with the muscular problem which has sidelined him for this month's qualifiers.

Bale was in Cardiff on Monday to receive his players' player of the year award at the Football Association of Wales' annual ceremony.

Friday 6th October
Georgia vs Wales
Austria vs Serbia
Republic of Ireland vs Moldova

Monday 9th October
Moldova vs Austria
Serbia vs Georgia
Wales vs Republic of Ireland

Unlikely that Wales will finish top now so they just have to cling on to 2nd spot. If Wales did qualify in 2nd, they need to also hope other results go their way as they've not done enough at the moment to qualify as a best 2nd-placed team. 

That game on Monday vs Ireland will be huge.

Well fuck. Of all the times to get an injury. ¬¬

We should still have enough to beat Georgia, but Ireland has just got that bit harder now. Ramsey will need to be the main man now.

Now of you excuse me, I'm off to slit myself.

This Wales v Ireland match is set up perfectly. A draw won't be enough for Wales, they'd finish bottom of the playoff table meaning they miss out. Both teams have to win, lovely.
