Could be France and Portugal. What a group that would be. 

Unlikely though as England usually get an easy group. 

Aye, a horror group like that might make up for it if we don't qualify.

Then again =

England, Poland, Czech Rep/Austria/Turkey , Scotland could be a fine wee group.

Even Croatia from pot 2 wouldn’t be the end of they world. They’ve been pretty poor recently. 

In all honesty I don’t care that much as long as we get there. Some sort of hope of getting out of the group would be nice but I’ll worry about that next March if we make it.

Wish in one hand and shite in the other and see what one fills up first.

It will be really weird being in the draw without being confirmed.  I don't think there will be any excitement from our fans which is a bit of a shame really.

As for the draw.  We'd want to avoid France and Portugal.  Any other combination gives us a chance with home advantage in the two games, especially as 3 points can get you out a group.  

If the draw is kind, we won't make it.  So maybe we want France and Portugal...just in case.

You do realise this is nonsense?

Unless you mean the players will bottle it in the playoffs if they think they have a chance of getting out the group?

If I was in the squad I think I'd be more likely to shite myself in the playoffs if we did get France and Portugal. We could end up getting beat 5-0 or worse three times in the space of 10 days. Nobody needs that shit.

Aye, I think that's what he means. Potentially getting drawn in the easiest group available to then go out to Israel would be unsurprising.

More than Mbappe or Griezmann?

I’d much rather have Poland from pot 2 than France. 

Anyway, John McGinn scored more goals in the qualifiers than Lewandowski so Poland should be terrified of him. 😂

Austria are decent. Am expecting england to get the usual suspects of Narnia, Lilliput and Lapland. And Scotland. Actually, this could work out well for us...

 

...although Lilliput have drafted in some Brobdingnagians this year to help them out at set pieces, so it won’t be all plain sailing.
