    League two promotion XI (Monday boredom breaker)

    just a bit of fun as it's Monday and I'm bored. I wondered which players people would have from our last league two promotion season under Tilly and who they would have from last seasons squad. So a combined XI playing a 442 would be best I think Considering we went on to win the league last...

    Tie breakers

    So holland can still qualify by beating Portugal by two clear goals according to the BBC site. But they will be level on points with Denmark and have a worse head to head record as Denmark beat them. Greece had a worse gd than zrussia but went through as they beat them. What am I mising here?
