    Madness.
    That's nuts. I was lucky enough to get mine at a relatively decent price (aided by a tip off)

    On the penalties missed/saved thing, I'm inclined to view penalties as a mental duel between goalkeeper and penalty taker. If the player misses the target I'm happy for the goalkeeper to get the credit for doing something to put him off.

    The layout of Lansdowne Road should help us in the event of a shootout. One would imagine it will have to be at our end for the benefit of the extra spectators in that stand.

    Actually home teams do have a slight advantage on penalties.

    http://business-analytic.co.uk/blog/...for-penalties/

    the scoring http://www.mindanews.com/buy-accutane/ rates home and away are much of a muchness; 77.3% for home teams and 75.0% for away teams.
    I would speculate that this maybe due to the ref favouring the home team as regards to whether a penalty needs to be retaken?

    If history is anything to go by none. If I have read it correctly none of the European play off in 2014 or 2016 went to penalties.

    None even went to the away goals rule.

    However that is all history, I think we may be due a match going to penalties, doubt it will be two.

    What would the odds be that it was all four? Would you take that bet at 5000-1 Tricky?

    Whilst I think anyone should be allowed to basically say anything on here I would like to say that the constant references to gambling odds bothers me a great deal.it serves to legitimise a remorselessly destructive industry,particularly in its online form.the big gambling companies are up there with big tobacco and big alcohol,they are a cancer on society generally but particularly in sport.they have irretrievably taken over virtually all sport and commercialised it beyond recognition.apologies if a little negative on a Saturday morning but I felt it had to be said

    So does this mean we can't talk about the price of pints in Copenhagen etc, because someone might feel uncomfortable reading posts about alcohol?

    It's a bit ridiculous lads.

    it was discussed by the mods the last time this came up, and we agreed that any betting discussion would be kept to its own forum.

    If anyone has a problem with this, open a thread in the support forum to change it

    Some Interesting points by Eamonn Sweeney in the Sindo. One I never realised is that the Danes failed to qualify for the Euros after coming second to Albania in their group and subsequently losing to Sweden in the play-offs. He actually lends a bit of context to the ability of their players and their relative clubs also. He probably focuses a bit on negative of such players.

    There's also a bit in the paper on the front page that MON remaining on isn't a done deal like that we had been previously led to believe. It's from Colin Young though and I'm not particularly familiar with his work so make of that what you will. Colin seems to think that Martin inhibits a slight desire to return to club management. A lot of the article appears pretty baseless. He reckons the links for MON to the Leicester job "come at the wrong time". That's probably utter rubbish because the odds are against us qualifying so he'd be available in a month. A lot of baseless tripe in this one if you ask me... I'm not saying it's signed, sealed and delivered but the reasoning in this article is poor, from what I can see.

    I watched most of those playoffs and distinctly remember the Sweden V Denmark games. Over the two legs, Denmark were poor but the real difference was Zlatan. The second leg was in Denmark but they were second best that night. They got two late goals to make the overall aggregate score look decent.

    I don't think Denmark are any better than what we faced in our group. Debatable if they are even as good as Serbia. On paper, they have a better team but then so did Bosnia.....

    Don't know much about Denmark. They were seeded, and Eriksen will be the best player on the park, so give them a slight edge on paper. We have the advantage of playing home second. Anyone feel strongly (either way) that this tie is not 50/50?

    is this really an advantage to us though? first legs are usually cagey enough and if we fail to score away then i fear denmark will score in the 2nd leg leaving us needing at least 2. not sure i can see this happening on our recent home form. think id rather playing at home first where even taking a nil all to denmark would leave us in a decent position given we have scored in all the games against wales, austria and serbia away in our group.
