    I’m off to Windsor Park tonight to see (ashamedly) my first NI match, at home to Germany.

    Flew over to Dublin Sunday night for a few days working South of the border and drove up today for more work and now about to head over to Windsor Park this evening.

    Absolutely buzzing...not quite Wembley but playing the World Champions whilst in good form, knowing that we’ve pretty much already sealed a play off spot.

    Good luck to the other home nations over the next few days.

    Be great if the Ireland Wales game was the decider between the two.

    Taking the Republic in that one if it comes down to a winner takes all.

    Apparently there is bad blood between the two because seamus Coleman broke his leg when they last played.

    Yeah, saw that. That was nasty. If I remember correctly, Bale should have been sent off too.

    In a car. On a road. Straight over. No stops.

    Quite simple really.

    Thanks! A little bit, on the Shameless Charity Plug thread. Simply the hardest thing I’ve ever done, mentally as much as physically. All done though!

    Right, pre match pint done, off to take my seat!

    Didn't realise for the play off qualificationthe 9 sides in 2nd place have a league table with the side that finishes bottom of each groups result taken out.

    So as it stands Wales in 2nd in their group wouldn't even make the play offs!

    I was tempted to go last minute but nobody wanted to come so didn't bother in the end.

    England look like a team down the park on a Sunday morning with a hangover. Need to pick it up.

    Yeah Southgate was impressed with his pass in the build up to Nazon's goal last week!

    Well 10 are and then Rashford is the keen 16 year old who was tucked up in bed by 10
    The night before, warms up & has a bag of skittles and a can of red bull 5 minutes before kick off!

    Southgate the wrong man for the job. We are playing like his personality.

    Lacking.

    What are those pundits on about with the Hart save, he clearly gets the ball.

    Oxlade-Chamberlain should be nowhere near the first team.

    If I was England manager I'd have someone timing players when they're needlessly stood still on the ball and they have to sprint a lap of the pitch in the next training session for each second. So much letting the defence get back into position.
