Another year and another qualification campaign down the drain. Only Scotland can fail after 3 games.
Even if we manage to beat Belgium away our campaign is doomed. There’s more chance of the Solomon Islands being at Brazil 2014 than us.
Yesterday’s 2-1 to Wales in Cardiff was typically heartbreaking but not exactly surprising. The only genuine European class player on the field was the difference between the teams.
Much like Maradonna versus England in 1986 we saw Bale cheat the referee to claim his first then score a wonder goal to win the game.
Wales also have no chance of qualification. Belgium,Croatia and Serbia will scrap for 1st place and the play-off place.
The World Cup will return to it’s spiritual home in 2014. It’s fair to this will be the ultimate fiesta of football.
I’ll be going but my team will not.
