European Nations League

Recommended Posts

Just noticed that Euro2020 qualifiers' seeding will be based on Nations League position too.   To be in pot3 for that, we need to win this or be one of the best two runners up.

If you win the nations league do you still then go into the normal qualifying groups but play those scheduled matches in the group as friendlies? Similar to what France done in the euro 2016 qualifiers

Looks like they still need to qualify, going by pot 1 I was just looking at...

Really? I've heard it's not so bad. Maybe one to leave the kilt in a bag but I've heard security is generally ok unless you have a range of Arabic stamps in your passport. I fancy it anyway from a trip perspective, from a football point of view we could maybe do better?

I've been to Israel a few times and never had any problems at the airport, it's interesting place to visit but there are some issues.

I didn’t have any hassle getting in, but coming home I was classed as high risk because I had a few Turkish stamps in my passport, was quizzed and searched a few times. Annoying, but not anything more than that.

I was going to mention Turkey.

I've Turkish stamps in mine too. Shouldn't be an issue.

If we won our section, we go into a play off, but it’s played after the Euro qualification is complete, so it would be our 2nd chance.

Ah ok. It makes sense now. You should be hired by the UEFA communications department

Been looking at all possible flights for Tirana, can go via a few places. Just noticed that flights via Bologna from Edinburgh just jumped up quite considerably for weekend 12-15 Oct, could just be a coincedence but quite queer

School week!

Yes! We noticed this last year with a work trip, took us a while to figure out why the prices for hotels and flights had nearly doubled. Ended up pushing the meetings back a week later.

Away games are decent enough from an annual leave perspective.

Was hoping for a double header haha

Surely to God given the Monday and Tuesday night scheduling they have to think about playing these games in Edinburgh or Aberdeen to get a crowd close to capacity and an atmosphere for the players. Hearts are likely to lay a new hybrid pitch (similar to the one at Murrayfield) this summer so I'd like to see one of the games played at Tynecastle.

 

The fixture dates for our UEFA Nations League campaign:   Scotland V Albania Monday 10 SEPTEMBER 2018, 7.45PM  Israel V SCOTLAND Thursday 11 October 2018, 7.45PM  Albania V SCOTLAND Saturday 17 November 2018, 7.45PM  SCOTLAND V Israel Tuesday 20 NOVEMBER 2018, 7.45PM

SSC membership guarantees a home ticket for competitive games so it’ll be Hampden

I think its a good draw for us. No pool is easy in European football, but those are two teams we should be expecting to get the upper hand on. Rep of Ireland got Wales and Denmark. I'd be a lot less confident if we'd landed in that pool.
