    Both Jimmy Mac and Gav Bazunu could rock it

    Agree 100%.

    Even the training gear is shocking. They’re trying to create some 90s nostalgia bull$hit but it’s just bad.
    The early 2020s will be remembered as the worst time for football kits….and Covid ….and Putin

    Now that I can see the warm-up top in real life, it's bad. Worse than the online image

    How is this going to pan out now I wonder?

    It seems more than likely now, that the only time Scotland and Ukraine will have to play their play off (if it happens at all), is during the NL window in June?

    But when and where? Ireland play Ukraine on GW1, Scotland then play Ukraine four days later.

    Does this NL game, now become the play off game?

    Or are GW1 games postponed and the play off game taking precedence?

    Then, depending on who wins, Scotland or Ukraine, another GW game may need to be put in.

    Where will the extra games be made up in the international window? Personally I think some of these NL games will be moved to next March

    But I can't see the expected NL campaign go ahead in June

    The home game against Armenia will be moved up to June to cover game week one and we'll play them away on game week two. Think one issue might be game week three if Scotland make it to the play off final. They might try to get it pushed back claiming the break between play off games should be four days for them too which would put the play off final to June 9th and we play them June 11th.

    I'd be shocked if Ukraine are in any position to fulfill football matches by the time June comes around. They'll probably forfeit their place in the WC and drop out of the nations league for this cycle.

    Was this mentioned earlier? Armenia lost 9-0 in Norway last night. They had a guy sent off v early.

    Probably better for us.. one, if not both of Scotland/Ukraine could be coming off the low of WC knockout, or been on the **** for 3 days after qualifying.. two packed Avivas in 3 days would be good too

    Yeah, it’s hard to see them playing. Certainly home games must be off the agenda, unless the war stops by then, which doesn’t look likely.
    Out for a spell, got neglected, lay on the bench unselected.

    Unless things take an unexpected turn I'd expect them to play now. Things moving mostly to the east of the country in terms of the battlegrounds, so western areas such as Lviv should become relatively safe for them to gather and train in.

    Apparently they have a training camp lined up for the home based players in the next few weeks. They'll play their home game outside of the country I'd imagine, probably across the border in Poland.

    Not sure how many players both teams would have in the Ukrainian team but Dynamo Kiev and Shaktar Donetsk are playing a bunch of friendlies over the next few weeks against teams in Europe as part of fundraising and to probably keep players fit for the play offs
    The last squad they had in November 13 of the 23 were from these two clubs and see they are trying to organise games against France and North Macedonia before they play Scotland.

    Anyone reckon Kenny should bring a squad of around 30 together for the four June games?

    There's bound to be a few injuries midway through the campaign, and it'd be a way to see how players react in a "tournament" style set up.. because four games in 12 days is as close to being at a Euros/WC as you're going to get
