    Euro 2020 Qualifying

    I agree if you had got group A I think we had a chance at 2nd. Let's not kid ourselves we are in a tough group. Italy, Bosnia and Finland will give us a lot of trouble especially away from home. Throw in Armenia they won't be easy. We couldn't finish 1st in the nations league with such a easy group. I predict we will be 4th here. It will be Italy Bosnia Finland Greece Armenia and last Litchenstein.

    Euro 2020 Qualifying

    This time around I'm just going to watch the qualifiers without any hope of qualifying. Like it was pre 2004. Last 14 yrs has been a rollar coaster ride. It will make life easier. Lol Italy will be first. No way they will screw up this one like they did 2018. After what I saw during the nations league no way we can beat Bosnia or Finland to 2nd place. Even Armenia away will give us trouble. Litechenstein is the only team we will beat twice. Here is the Kick in the teeth. If Finland finish 2nd and Qualify. Their playoff spot goes to Hungary. We couldn't even finish 2nd in that group for the safety blanket. How can we qualify from this??

    Of course there is always a chance and hope in anything. I guess just keep believing.

    Euro 2020 Qualifying

    Maybe I'm just pissed at how far this team has fallen. Champs in 2004 to chumps in 2018. Sad

    Euro 2020 Qualifying

    I'm going to watch too. But reading the comments makes me laugh. We finish 3rd in the nations cup but now we will finish 2nd and qualify. Lol

    Euro 2020 Qualifying

    Exactly. Spot on And It didn't matter what group we got it's impossible to qualify from pot 4. No team in ever in the history of qualifiers has qualified from pot 4. Euros and world cup

    Euro 2020 Qualifying

    This team is broke. It won't be fixed in time for the qualifiers. So much work needs to be done. Im sorry to be so negative but you could see the downfall from 2014. Final straw was finishing 3rd in the nations cup. A competition that was so easy for us to finish 1st and get into the playoffs. The 3rd division. The 3rd division let that sink in.

    Euro 2020 Qualifying

    Lol we can't top a group consisting of Finland , Hungary and Estonia but now we will finish 2nd in this group. 😂😂😂 We can dream. But I think it's time to wake up. Do you really think we can beat Italy? Let alone Bosnia and Finland? even Armenia will be tough away. Top teams struggle there. We will be lucky to finish 3rd but with the team we have I think 4th is where we will end up. Qualifying starts in less than 3 months unless Greece has naturalized a group of Brazilians we ain't qualifying lol 😂😂😂

    Euro 2020 Qualifying

    I agree with those who say it doesn't matter who we get tomorrow. we need to win and finish at least 2nd. But really I know how this will turn out. This is not a overnight fix. We just finished 3rd in a group consisting of Finland, Hungary and Estonia. Dose everyone actually believe we will qualify for the Euros? Lol We are in pot 4. It's going to be so hard to finish 2nd. We are no where near the pot 1 or pot 2 teams. Even pot 3 teams are way ahead of us. Guys be prepared to get use to not Qualifying. It's over. The fat lady has sung. We need help big time. We need change. The FA needs to be cleaned out, investment in facilities and youth. I always say look at what portugal did. Greece has to do the same. Yes we won a Euro but it was more luck and playing so defensive that we won. We had some luck in qualifying for some tournaments last 10yrs after 04 because of our rankings due to winning the cup, But it's over. Portugal is playing for another trophy next June.

    Euro 2020 Qualifying

    We are in trouble. At this moment we can't beat anyone. But I would say Switzerland Iceland Slovakia Gibraltar and San Marino. It still driving me nuts that if we had won the group we would have had a playoff spot already. Even 2nd place there was hope of a playoff spot.
  11. Yup it's sad😥. It's nice to have Greece at the party every 2 yrs but the writing was on the wall. The ride was going to be bumpy and eventually go down hill. For me the wake up was way back after we won the Euro 2004. When we didn't qualify for the World Cup in 2006 I realized that it was only a matter of time. 12 yrs later 2016 and we haven't qualified
  12. Favourable draw? When you are in pot 4 there is no favourable draw. We are screwed. Forget about 2020 we won't qualify. Of course there's always a chance but come on. Pot 4. It's impossible with this team. We blew it. Uefa has made it easy to qualify through this nations cup. If we only finished 1st we would have been guaranteed a playoff spot. Even if we finished as best 2nd or even 2nd best 2nd place the chance of getting a playoff spot was good. But we couldn't even do it in a group with Finland, Hungary and Estonia. We finish 3rd lol. We won't be at the Euros. Look at 2016 when the 3rd place was guaranteed a playoff spot so easy but we finished last in the group 😂😂😂 mark my words unless there's a massive shake up with the FA, money invested at grassroots, infrastructure built, good coaches we won't qualify for another tournament for a long time. Decades. Just look at portugal. I watched a documentary on their soccer program. Back in the early nineties they decided to invest in infrastructure and youth development, good youth coaches and they just built another advance complex for training this year. Look at the players they produce, how far they get in tournaments. They are in the nations league final in June. To much greed and corruption in Greece.
  13. It's going to be interesting to see who we get in our group for the qualifiers. If that even matters anymore lol 😂
  14. I have said it so many times. we are back in the dark ages of football. We won't qualify for another tournament For along long time.
  15. There's like 1000 people in the stands only lol 😂
