    Ancelotti needs a job like this IMO. He should go for it. Bit less hassle than club football.

    How bad were Berg and Toivonen by the way. They did absolutely nothing! Sweden played with 9 men tonight!
    It doesn't strike me as particularly ambitious to bring Bernardeschi and Insigne as deep as that.

    Yeah there's talk of him getting it. Seems the natural thing.

    The point is you could effectively ask them to play as far up the pitch as you like - the three at the back should be able to handle what Sweden were ready to throw at them.

    To have neither start the game (and Insigne not even play a minute) is ludicrous if you ask me.

    Or you could just put them either side of a striker in a 4-3-3, which would have prevented what we saw tonight: wing backs crossing endlessly to two ineffective centre forwards.

    No USA and no Italy in the World Cup. Why bother even having the competition without two of its biggest stars?

    Italy and USA have not World Class footballers, probably bar one potentially World Class, which is Cristian Pulisic of the US team,

    by the way, it's a big blow for both the football federations missing on next World Cup, particularly for Italy that didn't bottle it since 1958,

    an amazing tradition totally ********** up in a couple of play off games,

    but frankly because of the poor quality of their ranks, they deserve to stay home,

    On the face of it, it does seem harsh that Italy go out, being in a group with Spain while we had the likes of Slovenia, Slovakia and Malta.

    But then again, it wasn't just the 3-0 loss in Spain that put Italy out - they also drew 1-1 at home with Macedonia.

    By the way, this is UEFA's website, with the tables for the qualifying groups.

    http://www.uefa.com/european-qualifi...018/standings/

    Can anyone spot what's wrong with Group A?

    Unbelievable that they can make such a basic mistake on their own website.

    You seem shocked. This is UEFA that didn't know their own rules on CL play off qualification and seedings and you did.

    While I simplified it all, by saying we would draw the German team.

    Yeah I suppose they do have history of incompetence.

    But you'd have thought someone might have pointed it out to them by now. I mean it's about a month old and a fairly obvious error.

    Couts to come off "injured" after 85 minutes and be unable to play for us. What odds will you give me?
