This really annoys me, why are Isreal in the European competitions?? They're not European, and when they play in the Champions Leauge and put out my favourite team, it's not fair, they shouldn't even be there in the first place. :mad:

Chris, don't get too optimistic ;)
Chech is a good team, at Euro 2000 we only won by an unfair penalty (wow we actually scored one during the tournament! ;))

Well we could always go for the 2nd place I guess.
Although I do remember a loss against Belarus some years ago.

Zamboni

yes, I remember that too. Wasn;t it the qualifying for EC 1996? Orw WC 1998? It was the serial where we qualified in the playoffs against Ireland (!), right? Thanx to Patrick Kluivert! :)

I guess it was for EC '96.
But at least we qualified that year.
Only to lose 4-1 to England and to lose on penalties :( against France!

Zamboni
Jan 25th, 2002, 10:54 PM
yes, 4-1 and still go ahead...thanx to Pat again! ;)

Now it seems so stupid we ever complained about those friendly matches before Euro 2000 ;)

Yes! Who cares about those matches??
Playing great against England in a friendly match hasnt helped us.

israel is part of UEFA, and the reason is the political situation from israel.

a match between israel and a arabian country would never be safe.

:mad: again those croats!! the one team I wanted to avoid.

Arab countries will never play Israel.

ys Draw could have been easier.

Swiss as 3rd pot team is toughest one.

We play Ireland in 2 weeks so it both teams might put out "weaker" teams

I s'pose it's up to the west to keep conflicts to a minimum ... even on the sports field. (how lame)

Not a bad draw for Scotland, we should get 2nd at least and into the play offs, but then again knowing us we'll lose to Iceland!!:confused:

It's going to be very interesting against Germany seeing that it's almost certain that Bertie Vogts is going to be our new manager and he obviously is German and used to manage them too.

Can't complain too much about our draw though, we better make it this time though!!! ;)
