I think it is this current one that's included. The finals of it were due to be summer 2021, but obviously with the postponed Euro's that's been pushed back. Remember that WC 2022 is a winter World Cup.

 

Ah yeah of course because it alternates with the two summer tournaments.

So 2022 World Cup, 10 groups winners of each group automatically qualify.

The 10 runners-up plus the 2 best Nations League winners (that haven't qualified for 2022 or finished runners up in the group) then compete in a 12 team play-off system. Split into 3 groups of 4, a 2 legged semifinal then a single leg final. Winner of each final then qualifies (3 winners).

Like to make it a bit complex don't they! 

Anything for a few extra TV games to make money. Completely unneccesary.

I don't think there's actually any more games played by individual teams with this format.

It was a max of 12 games the last three times, it's a max of 12 games this time. It's been largely the same in the 21st century, I cba going further back.

The only difference now is more teams qualify directly and fewer qualify via the play-offs, with a greater number of smaller qualifying groups.

Bournemouth turned a 2-0 deficit around with a screamer from Lewis Cook

That was a penalty, wasn't it?  Even if it was soft.  

100% pen. Even on the replays it seemed to confirm it more, yet he reversed his decision.

Awful officiating.

Horrid. Sucker punch for WBA, United get a pen, miss it, then it gets retaken and they score.

Player to look out for Youssoufa Moukoko made his Dortmund debut tonight as a 16 year old. His record for the under 19s is 44 goals in 17 games. He replaced Haaland who only managed 4 goals tonight.  

He's not related to that gadge that used to be on Champ Manager, is he?

Been talking about this guy to my mates for a while. So Dortmund actually petitioned the Bundesliga to reduce the minimum ages for playing to 16 years old.... specifically for this player. 

Dortmund registered him in their squad at the start of the season despite knowing he wouldnt be able to play for the first three months.

Kid could be a star, his record at youth level is mental

Looked like a blatant case of VAR being used to ensure the "right result".

Good to see we weren't the only team to suffer with a penalty being touched twice this weekend. Fulham butchered a pen in very similar circumstances to ours.

    • Regarding Valdes. Are we really discussing the ability of a goalkeeper who has literally won every trophy possible and clocked up nearly 400 appearances for a team that was probably the best club side seen by an entire generation? The regular and quite ridiculous argument directed at Valdes was he had little to do for Barca such was they dominance. Do people genuinely think to be a keeper at the best club on the planet for as long as he was, that all you need to do is be able stand between two posts? Do people know how hard it is to even become a professional footballer at a half decent level never mind do it at the very elite level for as long as he did and we are discussing if he was a good keeper? Was he as good for as he was Barca? Well obviously not. But no player is going to be as good as for Boro as they would for Barca. You look better with better players around you. That is a simple fact.
    • Depends what you're using really. You shouldn't have any problems using a computer, or laptop which is by far the best option. However, if your using a phone it might not be up to the job, You need at least 4 GBs of ram for a decent stream, so if you're using a phone, it's time to upgrade.
    • Schwarzer was better for my money.  
    • I've been watching Boro a bit longer than just Pulis and Woodgate 🙂 But yeah I get what you mean, I'm sure people will enjoy being there, I'm just not that bothered about it myself.
    • Absolutely. Randolph was a great shot stopper but I also think he had his weaknesses, particularly with the ball at his feet, whether playing out from the back or in his kicking and in modern football that's quite a big thing.
